  •  Yeah, that's true, at least in the hype (0+ / 0-)

    it's to keep all those highly educated people from returning to their countries, and I also think that equating educated foreigners with start ups is wrong too.  There's a certain self selection in all immigrants, but some guys just want a nine to five.

    That's not even "gun control". It's more like "massacre control".

    •  What about the highly educated unemployed (0+ / 0-)

      and underemployed Americans?  

      Why would we be trying to keep more highly skilled workers in the US when we can't keep the ones we have employed?

      Sounds like a plan to drive down wages in that job market.

      Democratic Leaders must be very clear they stand with the working class of our country. Democrats must hold the line in demanding that deficit reduction is done fairly -- not on the backs of the elderly, the sick, children and the poor.

      •  What Is The Difference Between (0+ / 0-)

        Exporting jobs to cheaper labor and importing cheaper labor to jobs?

        •  Agree, two wrongs don't make a right (0+ / 0-)

          We're sucking the marrow out of our country when we fail to employ the best and brightest of our own workforce.
