Eventhough they are qualified and educated, they are considered as good as Illegals came in Trucks to make a living! that is Ridiculous.
Just because we are qualified and educated and pay taxes does not give us right to be permanent in this country. Remember America's job is hurting badly and we have higfh paying jobs for which Americans are also competing. How much competition do you see for jobs that undocumented are doing?

Just because we have many degrees, lot of money and drive good cars, we have become arrogant. If we go to Congress with this arrogance, insted of recapture bill, they will bring a capture bill to capture arrogant Legals and deport them after putting a moritarium on H1B and greencards.

You are nothing more than retard. That’s the law of the land and we are law obeying and tax paying people. GC is not taking away the jobs and people are in the same job for 5-10 years. If you don’t like that call your senator and change the law. If you are concerned about undocumented and humanitarian give your GC to one of the undocumented and send to your pay check to them.

This country is ruled by law and if you can not obey that you are not welcome here. American govt is not run by red cross to help all the poor people.

Default Please educate yourself

Eastindia -
We came here on H1B to do jobs for which qualified American's are not available. We are not demanding GC as a right but yes we have a right of first preference as we pay taxes and follow the laws. One of the reasons why the economy is hurting because legal aspiring immigrants are languishing in the queue with no end in sight. Many studies have shown that H1B's and other skilled immigrants create jobs.

I don't understand who gave you the right to judge legal immigrants, America is a capitalist country and so some occupations pay more than the others. Please understand that it is legally earned and tax paid money and its really none of your business to comment on what people do with their money.

Recapture is a very valid demand what’s wrong in that. I think something is wrong with your profile, please correct it. All you posts are pro - illegal immigration and anti skilled immigration. I personally have nothing for or against the not documented I understand the human issues involved. But promoting illegal over legal is simply unacceptable. I would once again request you to update your profile Iam sure you are not a skilled aspiring immigrant from East India.

Folks,

Doesn’t matter a dime whether your came here legally or illegally. You may be a slave in your H1B job for years - ten years ago very highly paid tech sector OR you work in a meat packaging plant as an illegal immigrant making $4 an hour– an industry once paid more than a Detroit auto worker. We all are in this mess together.

One should clearly understand why CIR is introduced and failed. CIR is introduced NOT to help Latinos or legal immigrants. It simply is a vehicle for elected officials to say loud clear what their constituents what to hear. Shame on us if we cannot understand the stakeholders in this game and their interests.

If CIR can be introduced, politicians win. If CIR is passed, every body wins. Let us set aside our differences and take action. Call your senator, representative, employer, local leaders.

Good luck

Guys,

eastindia and duff... whatever are both anti's fuelling anti immigrant sentiments. One deliberately creates bad blood by bashing illegals and the other indicates how we do not deserve GC. Try not responding to both. Their low lives feed of our fights.

Default Obama: if we continue to fail to act at the federal level

President Obama criticized a controversial new immigration bill in Arizona on Friday, calling it "misguided."

"Our failure to act responsible at the federal level will only open the door to irresponsibility by others. That includes, for example, the recent efforts in Arizona which threaten to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans, as well as the trust between police and their communities that is so crucial to keeping us safe," the president said at a naturalization ceremony for members of the military.

"In fact, I've instructed members of my administration to closely monitor the situation and examine the civil rights and other implications of this legislation. But if we continue to fail to act at the federal level, we will continue to see misguided efforts opening up around the country."

He added, "As a nation, as a people, we can choose a different future - a future that keeps faith with our history, with our heritage, and with the hope that America has always inspired in the hearts of people all over the world."

Not sure why many folks are worked up on political news regarding Immigration , its all electioneering talk , nothing will happen this year in terms of Immig laws.

The bill is not even introduced in the congress, so folks lets relax on this for a while, makes sense to not create new threads until it gains some real traction, please dont raise hopes for yourselves till it becomes a reality.
