NFAP : Trump was wrong on H-1B visa math.

According to a report by National Foundation for American Policy (NFAP),
US President Donald Trump get his H-1B visa math wrong.

One of the key findings of the report was that fears in the US that H-1B visas granted to foreign workers, especially Indian techies, were draining the job market of opportunities for the natives were exaggerated at best, and, "illogical" if seen in the context of data. 

The 9,356 new H-1B petitions for the top seven Indian-based companies approved in financial year 2016 represent "only 0.006 percent of the US labour force" , the report said, adding that while the threat of job loss has long been exaggerated by critics, it reaches illogical proportions when discussing fewer than 10,000 workers in an economy that employs 160 million workers nationwide.
