H1B Visa Property Owners and Jobs
Don’t panic. Yet
If you live in the United States and working on an H1B visa and you own a house, relax.
The government can’t come and get it from you unless there was criminal activity involving you or your gang of bad hombres selling crack, speed and weed out of the bedroom.

You could have made West Virginia the center of the robot world. Since robots are the future of manufacturing. You blew it.
So now, you have minors and their families suffering from all kinds of lung issues for no reason. And to top it off, you are trying to kill their healthcare.

Now, back to H1B. What happens if something happens? Prepare for the worst.

Fifty- Learn where to find a sanctuary city just in case.
