George Allen wants to stamp a green card on all graduating foreign students.
November 14, 2011–The number of international students at colleges and universities in the United States increased by five percent to 723,277 during the 2010/11 academic year, according to the Open Doors report, which is published annually by the Institute of International Education (IIE) in partnership with the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
Over 600,000 science and engineering degrees are granted annually from American universities.(1)
The US produces only 120,000 science and engineering jobs per year - 2006 (much less lately; the number may now be negative).(2)
That leaves 480,000 graduates per year without jobs in their chosen careers. Add to this over 250,000 H-1B, L-1, student and trade visas each year. Half a million Americans are losing their jobs to cheap foreign technical workers every year. Another half million Americans waste their S&E degrees on non-S&E jobs.

H-1B, L-1, F-1 OPT, and "Free Trade" visas are the Trojan Horse to offshoring of American Jobs.
