    However, it doesn't necessarily mean the employers will give priority to foreigners.  I think the process though has to be fixed so it's fair to both U.S. job seekers and those outside the U.S. who are applying for jobs inside the U.S.

    On the other hand, Bay Area is doing just fine.  There are even foreign companies that are setting up shop here in at least one location in San Francisco.

    For example, Zendesk, which came into the Mid-Market area of San Francisco not long after Twitter moved there, is originally a company from Copenhagen.  Now its headquarters is based in SF.  

    And there were three executives from foreign companies, in the mobile technology area, who were at a tech event in San Francisco last night that I was apart of.  They have offices and business in the Bay Area whereas their headquarters are based in Russia or elsewhere.

    Personally, I'm not worried.  The Bay Area economy is growing rapidly.  I think what people need is just networking opportunities.  I can provide them to any who are looking for work or always want to blame immigration for everything.
