Immigration Regulations Encourage Offshoring

According to this InfoWorld article, the immigration policies and procedures of the United States encourage offshoring, stating:

"Why go through the expense - including not just the visa fees but also the legal fees needed to process the visas, the time it takes to get new employees trained and up and running, plus the uncertainty, delays, and lack of permanency of investments you may have made in hiring foreign workers - when you can just contract a company outside our borders and still get most of the benefits of having the best and the brightest working for you?"
