    Nobel Prize in Economics winner, and free market champion Milton Friedman said that the H-1B visa is a government subsidy given to employers.

    No visa is abused more. Business hires young foreign graduates to replace older Americans. It's no wonder American students avoid those careers. We are cutting our own throat.

    We relly dont need any more construction workers from mexico. They are just cheap labor for those looking to make a profit on the backs of others, while asking americans to foot the bill for their free health care, free food, and on and on. Its like competing against someone for a job that is on welfare. Pretty hard to do, and its not fair.

    You have to ask why people would line up to come here. It certainly isn't the economic growth.
    Maybe there really is something to this form of government.
    One thing is for sure; there should be no doubt that we need to protect our borders.

    Democrats are telling us the solution to unemployment is higher minimum wages and longer unemployment benefits! Nancy Pelosi actually said that. They only understand unemployment and have no clue about employment. The solution to unemployment is becoming qualified for jobs where the jobs actually exist! We should have elected Mitt Romney he gets it!
