Letting immigrants with technical skills come here makes sense. Some other country educates them and then we get their skills!!

But we have to verify their diploma is legit and mot from some mill.

We have enough diversity in this country. Let's try bringing in people with half a brain instead of 30 kids.

Multiculuralism is so much fun. I enjoyed paying double for health care, I enjoyed watching my college educated son's compete for crap jobs. Yes diversity works for the big fat rich man, but why not reach out to Americans and educate them to work these engineering job's Fifteen years ago a College education actually meant a job. Now thousands of immigrants enter this country legally and illegally taking American job's. Both candidates pander to whomever they think will support them. America has lost it's way.

Well, if the job with fair pay has no American workers available to fill it then I can see the need to look outside the country to fill the jobs, alot of other countries do this as well and it is not really a bad thing.
I do not think a company shoudl be allowed to do this if they are offering pennies on the dollar in pay for an American worker just to be allowed to hire someone cheaper from another country.
One of my daughters works in a hospital in Dallas and they have an on call Radiologist for emergencies. They have a Radiologist employed in India for $8,000 annual salary. The radiograph or other imformation is sent online to India and reviewed and results returned in quick order to the hospital. Sometimes consults are done live video online and the radiologist is said to be very good but again,$8,000 a year versus 10 times that for an American Radiologist in house.

WRONG! Americans do the jobs you THINK we don't do. I have facts. Do you have facts to back up your claim? I see AMERICANS everyday working low wage jobs. The other day I went to one of those "do it yourself car washes" and saw an elderly WHITE man,(yes he is white), cleaning up around the trash cans and wiping off things and basically doing janitorial work. I've seen American hotel maids. In fact im seeing more Americans, work low wage jobs that illegals normally do.Where I live Americans are in the fields picking the fruits and veggies. I live in a big town with casinos. So don't feed us your bullshit on how lazy and fat Americans are and how we are too good to work a low wage job when I know for a fact its not true.
