    Microsoft has proposed a great plan: pay-to-play HB-1s (paid by the recruiting company). The revenue will be invested in training U.S. citizens in STEM careers, and the skills they needed to recruit for in the first place.

    I really have not problem with immigrants. However I would like to see:

    1- They have a natural born sponsor
    2-The know and are tested in the English language
    3- They show they can support themselves, if need be for a period of no less than 3 years
    4-They have a legal sponsored employment
    5-They have no significant health issues
    6-Any crime committed (traffic violations not counted) in their 3 year period, deportation.
    7-Companies that hire illegal immigrants will be subjected to a significant fine first offense, CEO and Board of Directors will be subject to criminal prosecution and incarceration second offense.

    I do believe migration is a human right, but I also believe each country should have policies that are sensible and realistic

    Obama has compromised enough, surely its time for the Republican side to do a bit of compromising!

    We do not want to give to the people that came here and stole form my country so easily. At any rate....the Republicans and Democrats are pretty much in agreement on immigration regardless what the foreign news's a no issue

    @10, Yup. Thank Gawd they're on the same page. @10 agreed. Been A HUGE ISSUE FOR THE U.K/Europe. in 2012.

    The incredible social services: free housing, free income, free care, attracted millions of ppl who dislike very much the PROGRESSIVE VALUES, & have never assimilated, unlike the U.S.

    The Wiki pinpoints the time when Argentinans-as rich as the British per person in the 1930s!!! stopped being so.

    It was the same time of that program where Argentina PAYED ppl to immigrate in the millions.
