#1 These are the types of immigrants we want to welcome to our shores - LAW ABIDING and productive.

Meanwhile, in Washington D.C. George Bush wants to give virtual amnesty to millions of people who violated federal law and entered the US illegally. Pissing in the eye of every single one of these people.

I say if you want a guest worker program then fine - but dont give any out until every single legal immigrant (including those who have not filed yet) have been given their turn.

It takes nearly 5 years for a petition for a relative (non-citizen son/daugher) to even be looked by the USCIS

#2 The facts are the managers of this department are totally incompetent. Fire them. I they can't get this work done quickly and efficiently fire them. The Secratary of Labort needs to be fired as well.

Apperently the "Department of Labor" doesn't know how to work. These approvals shouldn't take days, months or years, They should be able to be made in minutes.

#3 Microsoft Corp. Chairman Bill Gates has repeatedly advocated removing caps on H-1B visas.

Ah, yes, the unlimited labor market, no more supply and demand to contend with. H1Bs started at under 10K authorized and has grown care of both parties to over 200K per year. So why in the hell study computer science at all in America, cause the big companies will just hire foreign. Been in the game. First HR prints a help wanted listing that is a page long with qualifications [of which one or two humans on the planet might have most]. When no 'qualified' individual is found, they get an H1B visa authorization to hire foreign. There is no follow up to see how close the hired person matches the original listing. Its all a HR game. Companies complain they can't find people with 'experience', but won't employ Americans so they can get the experience. Companies complain they can't find the right skill combinations, but won't pay for the training. Damn, seems the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines not only pay for your time but also train you. However, Mr. US Business will not pay for training cause you might move on with the skills and the company doesn't want to issue a contract of obligation cause then the labor moves from resource to liability.

If you want unlimited labor, I want all barriers to products and services removed too. All those little Congressional paybacks to protect companies from international competition. I want full enforcement of Sherman Antitrust so that all cabals to rig prices are literally put out of business.

As for the Hundreds of thousands of immigrant workers trying to stay in the United States, thank all the illegals and their apologists who skip the line and divert resources from your applications.

#4 gotta take care of this process - make it reasonable for people willing to go through it. Don't reward the fence-jumpers

#5 To hell with all these bastards. Send them all packing back to wherever they came from. Next time you get on a freeway at rush hour ask yourself how many more people, particularly from elsewhere, we need to have in this country. There isn't one problem, not one, in this country that wasn't more easily addressed in a country of 150 million people than in a country of 300 million.
Ship 'em back and close the door for good. If we need more people here, they're easily made at home here in the U.S. by unskilled labor who enjoy their work.

#6 Where does it say it will be quick and easy to get a green card or citizenship in the US? It doesn't so knock of the god damned whinning. We let them stay while the process is going on so what is the prob? They are lucky we let anyone in at this point.
