Is she as totally clueless as she appears? Doesn't she receive unemployment figures in her office or does she just not read them?

Here's a really unique idea. Why don't we insure that all of our "home grown", highly skilled talent is fully employed before we go looking for cheap labor from overseas.

Sounds good but many business can't find the help they need in the USA

A car company that got us tax dollars to build electric cars could not find the skilled labor they needed so the moved to Europe

We need to get Education out of the Fed Govt, set the rules in our respective states and take control of what our kids are taught, which would lead us to the best our tax dollars can educate.

Or, maybe they couldn't find enough skilled labor at the slave wages they wanted to pay. We need the entire story before we can draw any conclusions.

Bring back jobs then we'll talk about letting in more competitors. Close the borders and watch those overstayed visas.

Will there be a law in place that says companies have to prove that no qualified Americans applied for said jobs?

In other words you want more skilled immigrants from Africa and Asia like the 9/11 hijackers and fewer hard working hispanic immigrants?

Sort of pro Al Quieda.

More Muzzies... fewer Catholics?

Those Guatemalans would have all voted for Romney if the insanely racist teabaggers had not made him lie to them about his opinion on the immigration issue. Teabaggers like being lied to for some reason.

Who needs proof? It is basic common sense that Americans would rather sit at home, drink beer, sell meth and wait for their welfare checks to arrive than to pick beans or cut sugar cane for minimum wage. Only the hard working immigrants are willing to...

Let the corporations follow the workers? Ship the jobs off to east Asia?

Typical anti-American yahoo mentality.

Bet you voted for Obamanomics... and its systemic long term double digit unemployment rates... especially for blacks and hispanics.

Being born in Hawaii and educated in muzzie schools in Indonesia naturally he puts his own first.
