American tech firms, from Facebook Inc. to Google, rely on foreign talent to shore up domestic workforces. Infosys Ltd. and Tata Consultancy Services Ltd. traditionally dispatch Indian software engineers to work in tandem with their American clients, which include some of the largest Wall Street banks and technology corporations. It remains unclear whether Biden will ease visa restrictions in general, reversing curbs imposed by the former Trump administration.

And your point is what exactly? The unemployment rate among US software engineers probably approximates zero (hence the demand for foreign talent), and you can't put an unemployed restaurant or coal mine employee into a software engineer job. You can train that coal worker for a new infrastructure job though, and that H1B visa holder will be buying meals from restaurants putting workers back to work.

There is lots of evidence that immigration helps, not hurts, the US economy.
