Frenchy's Gotta Go
Tuesday, August 12, 2003; 8:10 AM

Known affectionately by his American friends as "Frenchy," Guillame Gravile's H1B visa status is almost up and he has to return to his hometown of Paris or face deportation from the country he has called home for several years. After riding the Internet bubble for several years in Silicone Valley as a software consultant, Gravile's luck has run out and he is unable to find a company that will hire him and sponsor him for a new H1B visa. Thousands of other international hit tech migrants have recently found themselves in the same position.
