China chases Silicon Valley talent who are worried about Trump presidency

This f'ker could precipitate a brain drain?!

China is trying to capitalize on President-electDonald Trump's hardline immigration stance and vow to clamp down on a foreign worker visa program that has been used to recruit thousands from overseas to Silicon Valley.

Leading tech entrepreneurs, including Robin Li, the billionaire CEO of Baidu, China's largest search engine, see Trump's plans as a huge potential opportunity to lure tech talent away from the United States.

1. And they'll leave

because many are vigilantes and some are spies or soon to become spies. The HB1 program was a big step in the wrong direction and now the end result is in the faces of the high tech industry that has been screwing us for about 20 years now. Let the HB1s leave, all the more work for our citizen techies... the corps have to actually pay them, though and that's probably the hang up right there.
