POTUS Aware of H-1B Abuse Since '93

theodp (442580) writes "In conjunction with Elena Kagan's Supreme Court nomination, memos that arrived in her inbox while serving as a Clinton White House policy adviser were released. A number shed light on how the administration's H-1B visa policy unfolded. Despite reports of H-1B abuse dating back to 1993, the Clinton White House ultimately gave ground on a push for visa reform, abandoning a plan to 'call industry's bluff re: their shortage of really highly skilled and desirable workers'. Instead, 'significant compromises' were made that boosted visa limits and exempted 'companies such as Microsoft, Intel, and HP' from attesting to making an effort to recruit U.S. workers."
