    I am fine with admitting highly educated immigrants. But this narrow focus on STEM seems to be unfair to and discriminatory. Why not law students and medical students? Why not accountants and finance analysts? Why not veterinarians? I am also very troubled by the corporate angle. The corporations just want a pliant workforce that they can hire and throw away at will. The H1B visa basically turns people into indentured servants who are too scared to leave their place of employment.

    We should be very careful of some of this right wing corporatist baggage attached to the amnesty bill.
