Work Overseas in IT

Ok, I realize that this forum tends towards working over here, but I am curious about how a job here can translate overseas. Cutting to the chase, if a person has an IT job here and wishes to work in America, what are his or her prospects? I see on Monster that there are numerous jobs for IT specialists and folks with experience in that area; are these jobs equally available to those who are immigrants to America? What is the competition like? Just curious…I appreciate any insight into this. :slight_smile:
