Rush Limbaugh is 100% right about the immigation insanity. There are no restrictions or caps on family based immigration. Thus we get people based merely on biology and that concept is outmoded.The Anchor baby jail is a genuine problem and immigration should be based on vocation alone with some humanitarian cases.
Yet we limit the best and the brightest to 58,000 in a guest worker type scam.Many of these programer jobs can be done by Americans. However Americans cost too much and a H1b worker can come in at a lower wage that is can be kept constant. If the workers performance is subpar goodbye. The worker must find another employer to sponsor him or goodbye Charlie. The answer is not more government regulation as instead of H1b visas the job would be moved offshore.
The reality is that while factory jobs were being exported many techies were flying high. Union tradesmen are replaced by cheaper illegal labor. The commies who fancy themselves the fan of the working man and inner city readily sold these groups out to coopt the illegal workers marches.
The truth is nobody is looking out for the regular man. The manufacturing jobs are gone and many of the white collar jobs have been outsourced. The notion of free trade lifing all boats has failed. We were told the jobs in Mexico would stop the immigration Northwards. Except those jobs went to China and Mexico is no closer to being a functional state then it was in the 90's.
