Clinton Orders Review of J-1 Work-Study and Trainee Programs

Rating: 2 votes, 5.00 average.

Following a report of alleged worker abuses at the Hershey plant in Pennsylvania involving J-1 exchange visas and an indictment outlining use of the program by organized crime groups seeking to import sex workers, the State Department will be conducting a review of the program to determine how to better detect those seeking to use the program illegally. It's not clear how extensive the abuses were for a program that has been in existence for more than a half century.

    Maybe state department can also look into visa stamping issues in Indian embassy/consulates where visas are rejected for no apparent reason. Or they are put on painfully long holds with no regard to worker, its setup in US or its job.

    Actually, the abuses are quite extensive and have been going on for years. See the December 2010 AP article ("J-1 Student Visa Abuse: Foreign Students Forced to Work in Strip Clubs, Eat on Floor") at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/12/06/j1-student-visa-abuse-for_n_792354.html . See also the EPI report from July 2011 ("J Visas: Minimal Oversight Despite Significant Implications for the U.S. Labor Market") at http://www.epi.org/publication/j_visas_minimal_oversight_despite_significant_implications_for_the_labor_ma/ . This week's arrests of organized crime figures alleged to be importing sex workers through the J-1 Summer Work-Travel program come as absolutely no surprise in light of these prior revelations.

    I think India has a lot of racist consular officers beginning with Maureen Chao in Chennai. She herself is married to a Chinese guy and calls Tamils dark and dirty!
