When there are multiple applications for a job, we only interview H1Bs if there is no local US person applying who seem qualified.
I've never worked at a place where that was true. Generally a company creates an opening. Then they filter folks for some short period of time to meet the requirements. Then we spend the next 6 months interviewing only H1-Bs.
And the rest of the world is laughing because the US is crippling itself again...
Your good nature will bring unbounded happiness.
