    they get a different kind of visa while they study and the IEEE has recommended that smart advanced degree folks get Green Cards, that convey permanent resident status so they can start meaningful careers and stay here.

    The H1b visa is a temp worker who comes for 3 years with a possible 3 year extension then they go home.  It is very difficult to get a Green Card.  While that low level worker is here they are also tied to the employer who brought them in on the visa.  Guest Workers are Indentured Servants.  And that is why the GOP like them, and sadly many Dems have also bought the bull that we don't have smart enough Americans to do tech jobs.

    Congressional elections have consequences!
