I found the court documents on Dibon Solutions!

Now I'll explain why DOJ charged them with Conspiracy to Induce Illegal Immigration for Financial Gain.

indictment

The Texas Department of Justice has just revealed another secret the American public doesn't know--American temp agencies use visa programs like the H1-b to warehouse unemployed foreign citizens and then sell them to larger American companies and your local government.  The American public is led to believe that H1-bs are working, but that's not true.

How does this happen?

Because these temp staffing agencies don't have to seek Americans first, they promise jobs to people in other countries, lie on the H1-b application stating that they have a job opening, and then don't pay these foreign citizens until the staffing agency finds them work.  The Texas division of the DOJ just indicted Dibon Solutions for doing just so.

In this case, Dibon would be company 1, crying to the U.S. government that they have jobs to fill at Dibbon headquarters and cannot find any U.S. workers, company 2 and 3 would be your local government office, 7-11, Intel and many companies choosing to bypass the U.S. workforce with plausible deniability of their actions.

In related news, on March 5, 2013, there was yet another petition by corporations to increase the number of indentured workers from abroad leading to a congressional hearing to increase guest worker importation.

In his opening statements, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), chairman of the immigration subcommittee, noted that "stories still abound about American workers being laid off and replaced by H-1B workers, even being forced to train their replacements." Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) also asked the panel of witnesses—who all advocated for high-skilled immigration reform—whether the H-1B visa program will lead to lower salaries for immigrant and American workers.
As expected, the corporate lobbyists are adamant that they be the deciders on which foreigners get to join the U.S. workforce. No independent skill criteria will be acceptable.
When Gowdy asked whether implementing a point system would help with the high-skilled immigration problem, the witnesses largely voiced opposition to such a proposal.

"I think the point system will bring more bureaucracy to an already complicated and broken process, so I wouldn't' support that," Garfield said.

 

Hopefully Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) and other democrats will not be bullied by these corporations thirst for cheap labor and wanton bypassing of the available U.S. workforce.

Dibon Solutions, an American temp staffing company outside Dallas, filed over 800 H1-b applications for jobs paying just over $50,000 between 2001-2012.  Incredibly, Dibon was allowed to award 137 green cards.  The indictment only covers a few foreign techies during 2008 through 2011.

Dibon has offices across the country and around the world.  Their U.S. business clients included Intel, 7-11, Conoco Phillips, BellSouth, and Countrywide Financial.  Government and educational clients included the state of Iowa, the City of St. Paul, the University of Notre Dame and Alaska Railroad.

Should we trust corporations to decide who gets to immigrate to the U.S. and participate in our workforce?
