Rather than giving foreign aid in the form of cash, why don't we just allow the nations of the world to keep their best and brightest so that they can create dynamic businesses and institutions within their own country? As it stands now, we steal away their most capable and then essentially hand over welfare for the impoverished masses that remain. Why not allow them the benefit of their home grown human capital so that they can help to create self sustaining nations that don't export problems to the rest of the world.

You're reading my mind this morning, NWJose. Surely among the millions of unemployed Americans, or underemployed, we have those who would love a shot at some of these jobs our government is so eager to give away to foreigners. Washington is in a "No Americans Allowed" mode and we are the losers.

You may have noticed that fast food and other workers are planning a walk out soon to push for higher wages. What's not generally mentioned in the articles about this is that these workers are in industries heavily populated by illegal aliens who, of course, depress wages for everyone.
