    When someone claims that some corporate guy says that they lost less money than they would have because they used H1B employees for a failed project they should provide facts.

    Your comment doesn't seem to apply to mine. Perhaps it was meant for some other comment.

    Anyway, I see no need to eliminate them. In fact, I'd put Ellis Island style entryways at each of our borders and coasts. I like immigrants.

    Man. Some "progressives" make Archie Bunker look like Tim Wise.

      And I'd be content with a single world labor pool where everyone's rights were the same everywhere. I - and most of the people in this thread - would do great in that environment, where I'm guessing you would be flipping burgers somewhere like South Ossetia once U.S. law becomes an anachronism.

      That's not what's being argued here, and the difference between immigrants and gastfarben has been emphasized over and over again. Equal pay for equal work everywhere, and let the best man win!

      Are you Rep. Mark Pence, the Republican.  He (or You?) spouted that really awful idea of putting up "Ellis Island" type of ports of entry to further flood our labor markets with mostly third-world cheap labor.  My, how patriotic of you.

      Since you may not get to reading Thomas Frank's book, The Wrecking Crew,  let me put it to you straight.  We're never going to let this country become what Abramoff and his crony lobbying buddies did to Saipan, in the Northern Marianas.

      Let me spell it out to you JayGR:  We will not allow such bad trade and labor policies to further accelerate in our country.  You can learn, and get on board with progressive labor and economic policies, or you will be viewed in the same light as those who Thomas Frank describes in his chapter, "The Bantustan that Roared"    OR worse viewed in the same light as  a John Walker, Alrich Ames, Robert Hanssen.

      I, as many others here, am comfortable within the 80x86 chipset - hardware.

      You, like many of the H1-Bs, are knowledgable and competent within a construct based on a structure, like intellectual parasites. Take away your Cobol compiler and you have to find another host (e.g., Java), or die; or take away your U.S. law and you are lost.

      Many of us have several times been through the equivalent of scrapping the entire U.S. code every 5 years to introduce a new one, and we have survived - despite the guest-worker competition. I've seen nothing to suggest that you could do the same. Think you could?
