    the group of otherwise really good people here who insist on trolling every single diary this diarist writes.  They are determined to undermine him with accusations of xenophobia and racism. They rarely if ever address the facts that the diarist brings to the table, nor do they ever address the overall problem.

      I am open to discussions about whether we are granting too many H1B visas, particularly for IT positions. I am actually quite sympathetic to the diarist's point on this one limited aspect of immigration policy.  In this diary, so far so good. I will restrain myself.  But the IT jobs problem so often gets conflated with all sorts of other immigration issues and when we start hearing about how people should come "legally", without any understanding of the barriers involved or empathy for the families that have been here for years, then I feel OK about jumping in.
