Safety Tips

It is an election time and emotions run high. Everyone knows these things and knows how to stay safe.

We would like to reiterate some of them for your own safety.

  • It is best to avoid public areas that are known for indecent activities. Do not roam around alone at night.
  • Do not indulge in arguments over petty issues in bars or clubs. Use your best judgment but it is always best to leave the place immediately if you see a sensitive political debate developing even if you are not involved.
  • Always speak in the English language in public areas like restaurants, night clubs, or grocery stores. You might not feel but people around you do get irritated if you use your native language in public areas and they cannot understand it.
  • Mind your own business at the office – Most offices are closed due to COVID-19 and you are probably working from home using an H1B visa. We suggest staying away from openly criticizing any political party (read Democrats and Republicans) in the USA. You may not know who is getting offended in your online office meetings. Talk to-the-point and choose your words wisely.
What should I do if I receive the same letter?

You should immediately contact your local city’s police department and file a complaint.

Should I leave the USA to safeguard my family?

There is no need to be scared as the letter is meant to unnecessary scare you by threatening to kill.

If you file a police complaint, you should be fine.

You should also tell your H1B or L1 employer know about this letter. They cannot do anything about it and they will also ask you to call either 911 or call local police.

Your H1B or L1 visa has been legally approved by USCIS and you are not doing anything illegal by staying and working in the USA as long as you follow all the rules.
