Yet you still hear ‘HR’ people call in to talk shows claiming the H1B program is clean and badly needed.
Bottom line, we do not need these immigrants, legal or illegal. I contend it is a misguided attempt to appease employers who need competent help, but unwilling to invest in the resources of its own country.
I am capitalist all the way, but when they, the businesses of this country subject the rest of this to all the frills and benefits of residency and potential citizenship to foreigner for the sake of just the bottome line, that is where I draw the line.
Foreigners, the H1Bers convert to citizens for the large part. They eventually engineer the immigration of their extended families, who largely take full advantages of the largesse allowed - assistance, SS (yes, there are cooperative agreements for their own-country retirement payments, etc.)...
We simply don’t need these people. We don’t have a wilderness to tame, nor can we afford more Democrat voters.
