You have Philippinos, Pakistanis, Chinese etc.. to take our place.. Most of us are not into Rocket science. In this respect, we are the ones who will be on the losing end..Thats what I said, if USA will show hostility then India might try to stop its students and skilled dudes to go to the USA.
What about the human cost, where those millions have to sell their property in US, take their kids out of school and come back to India. You have any idea how much Ran*i rona Indian media will do, and how much the opposition will heckle GOI if such a situation comes to pass.
This green card quota is creating a very tricky situation where in there are millions of Indians on H1B whose only hope is to somehow cling onto the US. The backlog is only worsening and it will only further provide leverage to the US. Its time India restricts Indians on H1b or L1 from applying for Green cards, especially in EB2 category..
