"America needs more highly skilled workers" ? The starting salaries for tech graduates are flat. Layoffs in the tech industries abound. Every immigrant, both legal and otherwise displaces an American in a job or at a university. Moreover, this labor shortage is one that US Labor Department knows nothing about.
The notion that Americans are too dumb or too lazy to do certain jobs or attend our universities is a hard sell with me and should also be with political class making lucid immigration laws.
Linda Chaves is entitled to her own opinion but not her own facts.
