Indian outsourcers that fill high-tech jobs say the immigration bill passed by the Senate would restrict their ability to operate in the U.S. while at the same time doubling the number of foreign workers who can enter the U.S. on H-1B visas. "The bill would give great market opportunities to non-Indian companies, even though they tap into the same pool of skilled labor from India through the visa process," said Som Mittal, president of the National Association of Software and Services Companies, a trade association for Indian outsourcing firms.
