This nation needs to put into place similar such actions...

We need to stop being concerned about parties, Democrat or Republican and be about keeping American citizens in jobs with the hope that it will improve our economy...we should be concerned about the citizens of this country staying employed.

There are so many visa and worker programs attached to the latest Immigration bill, S744, the corporations in this country must be really pushing it big time. I know that Facebook and Microsoft are big time. Mark and Bill can not wait. Let the in-sourcing and take over of American jobs begin...how naive are people in this country anyway.

The politicians and corporations are in bed together in reaching their goals and we as the American public do not even realize the really, really bad deal that this bill is for us, the working class, along with our future generations, our children/grandchildren.

Wake up please before it is to late !!!

I have to agree with you..

this is a very misleading guideline. They are keeping us in the dark about how really bad the unemployment rates are, in fact this is a quote from Senator Bernie Sanders:

"The unemployment rate for 16- to 24-year old workers was 16.2 percent in April. Thatís more than double the national rate of unemployment. For teenagers, the overall unemployment rate is 25.1 percent. For black teens the number is a distressing 43.1 percent. The United States has surpassed much of Europe in the percentage of young adults without jobs, according to The New York Times. What has Congress done? It cut $1 billion from youth jobs programs over the past decade. Bernie is working on legislation to change that."

So unemployment is still a great problem in the great US of A.

Many of these voters have a background of being here illegally...

I know because I live with them and they have told me so. Just because I am a democrat it does not make me believe that it is a good ideal to have so many illegals voting in this country. It is not right nor fair and it breaks our rule of law. It is simply just wrong and none of us from either party should promote such illegal activities. It demeans us as a nation of laws and a nation without laws will in the end fail it's citizenship. We should be fair in all our actions so that we are always on the right side of an issue.

I have atleast one reason why...there are probably others too

An American student can not attend school until they are 24 years of age due to the fact that they can not get student loans until that age. Most students who are of a lower or medium income background are expected to get their parents to pay their way thru college when the parents more then likely can not afford it. I have run into this problem with my own 3 children so I know that it is a fact. Our country does not wish for our America born children to get higher educations and it simply burns my a-s-s that they, my children, are being treated in this way. They have been shut out of the educational system!

You may not like his approach...

but this is a serious issue. There are so many visas and guests worker plans hidden in the Immigration bill S744 that the big Tech Companies and other corporations can not wait for it to pass. Facebook's and Microsoft's Mark and Bill are waiting in the wings for it to become law so that they can bring in all the workers they want and get the cheaper labor they so desire. There have been reports demonstrating that we have the workers here but they have no wish to hire them because they cost more. Get real and look into the bill for all the reasons why we, the American public, must reject it. It is the same lies as before with the Immigration bill of 1986 which has been shown to be a complete failure and it to was packed with many lies including enforcement which never happened.

Wake up please !!!!

P.S. I am not a conservative and yes, I voted for Obama too.

This concern should not be about who belongs to which party...

it should be concerned about the citizens of this country staying employed.

I know that Facebook and Microsoft are big time. Mark and Bill can not wait. Let the in-sourcing and take over of American jobs begin...how naive are people in this country anyway.
