Republican efforts to pave the way for talented immigrants to enter America are being opposed by the Obama Administration. Specifically, President Obama is opposing the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Act. This bill would expedite the issuance of visas to foreign-born graduates with technical degrees from US universities.
The President characterized the legislation as misguided. It would extend the benefits of residency and employment to highly skilled foreigners. This is contrary to my wishes and contradicts Americas promise. The beneficiaries would tend to be the most capable people from foreign countries. We should be encouraging them to return home to share their abilities with their fellow countrymen, not stealing them for our own benefit.
The people we ought to be bringing in are the tired, poor huddled masses that we promised to rescue, the President countered. We are a rich country. We have the wealth and resources to take care of those who are ill-fed, ill-housed, and ill-clothed in foreign lands. A comprehensive immigration reform that expedites the admission of these unfortunates will help us realize the dream of a more equitable redistribution of our riches.
To further bolster the case for his comprehensive immigration reform package, Obama cited the plummeting birthrates among illegal immigrants. The difficult economy has reduced the opportunity for those without the necessary documents to earn an income adequate to support their families, Obama asserted. This reemphasizes the need to establish a means for them to legally qualify for the many programs our society has to offer those in distress so they may more fully enjoy their human right to reproduce without fear of deprivation.

The Leftist mind at work. Good one John.
Now, now. We can’t allow educated immigrants to come to this country. They might “vote” the wrong way.
Now I noticed it was satire. Still funny and more truth than fiction.
Talented immigrants are too likely to become conservative voters. Dems want imbeciles interested only in handouts.
