"We need all the high-skill people we can get, from whatever countries."
But this is not what we are going to get with a bill that basically gives amnesty to the millions of people that their own nations dumped on us. We will get the un/under educated class that cannot speak English, even slightly, and who has an entirely different view (Pan-American) of government. When was the last time you read about some Guatamalan doctor/scientist sneaking across the Rio Grand?
And where in all this talk about what the U.S. should do about foreign nationals that have illegally entered our nation is there anything about holding those nations, i.e. Mexico, for allowing their citizens to cross our borders illegally? Crickets.
