Default Bill Gates on Immigration

http://immigration.about.com/b/a/165661.htm


"In a recent panel discussion at the Library of Congress, Bill Gates suggested to "get rid of the H-1B visa caps," finding the numerical limitation for technology workers "questionable," suggesting that "the theory behind the H-1B" (cap) is "too many smart people are coming" to temporarily work in this country."


I wonder if the richest man in the world can understand and feel the pain about this why it is so hard for sen. and congress. Why corporations like microsoft is not stepping up.

Microsoft is definitely working on increasing H1-B and EB GC quotas. It is possible that they might have been one of main proponents of the immigration clauses in S.1932

This Stupid lame Duck talks of only increase of H1B's. Rarely or never talks abt removing GC quota.Then if congress really listens to him,its gonna take 6 years just to get Prewailing Wage From DOL.
