New H1B Job Postings - New comment on 3,600 Microsoft Shoes Waiting to Drop.

Mini - I understand why people are sensitive about H1B visa holders already working at Microsoft. But, what about new job postings?
Why has Microsoft posted 462 new H1B jobs?
How can Microsoft turn their back on qualified people here in the United States? Can't Microsoft call a truce on H1B visas, at least until qualified US applicants have an opportunity to apply?
Your former co-workers lives are being uprooted, children being pulled out of school, ill family members need care and health insurance.
This is the only time in a highly successful 15+ year career that I've had to file an unemployment claim. The economy is in dire condition and this week's record breaking layoffs have overloaded the unemployment system - I had to wait over 45 minutes on the phone to ask a question, and by that time was in tears.
Hiring Managers, I urge you to please seek qualified US Microsoft alumni before posting jobs for H1B workers in far off lands. Your former co-workers, people who are your friends, neighbors, and colleagues, have worked hard and earned the right to a fair chance.
Thank you for your consideration. The job you save may be your own.
(Still in cool-down mode.)
