The plain fact is Indians don't take up jobs that should have gone to Americans. Rather they do the jobs not enough Americans are qualified to do
Does the election of Donald Trump as the next US president pose a threat to India’s IT industry? On several occasions during the course of his frenzied campaign the president elect blamed India for taking away jobs from Americans, pledging to bring them back if elected president. In one of his speeches he was more specific: “I want to scrap all H-1B visas". It has been a constant theme for him. In his 2011 book Time To Get Tough, Trump advocated a 15% tax on US companies for outsourcing jobs to places like India.
