18. Oh bullcrap.
There's been plenty about offshoring manufacturing jobs to China.

And cut the strawman crap. "You aren't allowed to talk about this one thing unless you also talk about this other thing!" People bring up the loss of tech jobs to visa holders not just because many of us were in that industry but also because they were fields that people were strongly encouraged to enter in the 90s because we were told that there was great opportunity and job security. That's turned not to be the case and it's pretty fucking ironic to see people like Bill Gates and Andy Grove mewling about the "need" for more immigrant visas when they are the ones who turned IT work into the kind of low paid drudgery that discourages American kids from wanting to go into it.
