I'm not sure if Boston is really a "tech hub", though. Yeah, it's a massive research/innovation hub, but the major tech firms don't have a big presence. Traditional firms like Apple, Microsoft, Samsung, Oracle, Cisco and new firms like Amazon, Facebook, Twitter, Uber, don't have much of a presence, meaning there isn't tremendous need for H-1B visas.

In contrast, Silicon Valley has a gigantic demand for H-1B, hence the massive Indian population around San Jose.
