Who Should We Keep Out?

COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION REFORM

"See, the technology industry desperately needs more foreign engineers, but Congressrefuses to increase the number of visas for high-tech workers without completely overhauling the entire immigration system."

http://techcrunch.com/2013/05/05/there-is-in-fact-a-tech-talent-shortage-and-there-always-will-be/

"Given how few Republican members of Congress represent competitive districts with sizable Hispanic populations — there are only four House districts Republicans hold that have a Hispanic population of 25 percent or more and were carried by President Obama in 2012 — and the strong feelings against reform within the party base, it’s not hard to see why McConnell (R-Ky.) and Boehner (R-Ohio) have cooled on the idea of passing immigration reform before the midterms."
