    ...source for the assertion that H1B Visas "create" jobs?

    It can be shown that more immigration increases GDP. But if I hire 5 H1B visa workers instead of 5 Americans, how can that possibly create an additional 4 jobs?

    What is so magical about the foriegn-born worker that he brings 0.83 jobs with him? And how do we know that this fractional job goes to a "US Citizen"?

    And lastly (I don't mean to be vulgar) but what do these "created" jobs pay?
