57. You are for immigration, fine, I am too. You want smear WHITE people, fine, but I don't ...

 

You want to stereotype southerners, that is fine too. I happen to like southern people, whether they are conservatives, or liberals like me, or bigots who stereotype whites and southerners.

But all of your smears, all of your stereotypes, are not relevant to the premise of the H-1B visa and all of the other work visas that are used to replace US workers with cheap third world workers. There is simply no shortage of US STEM workers. These work visas are here to reduce labor costs, to make more money for Bill Gates, Larry Page, Larry Ellison, etc by replacing US STEM workers with cheap workers from India and Communist China.

I am not against immigration, I am for immigration. It is just the magnitude that concerns me. Other countries have their own reasons for increasing immigration, reasons that may or may not apply to the US. Just because Afganistan engages in a certain behavior, does not necessarily mean that the US should. Just because Canada or Australia engages in heavy immigration, doesn't mean that the US should. For one reason, their population is significantly less than the US.

Why is it that people can justify irrational behavior because some other country engages in that behavior? Why is it that some people object to someone else's opinion because they may or may not be white, or southern. What does that have to do with the issue at hand?

The fact is that these work visas are being used to reduce labor costs and in the process, HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF US STEM WORKERS are losing their jobs. Maybe the plight of disenfranchised white STEM workers doesn't concern you or the plight of disenfranchised southern US STEM workers does not concern you, but african american, latino, asian US STEM workers are becoming disenfranchised US STEM workers are losing their jobs too. Disenfranchised STEM workers are from all over the country are losing their jobs too, not just people from the south.

With all due respect, you should drop your aversion to whites and drop your aversion to southerns too!
