    Knowledge workers no longer need to live in America to work as they can now work from almost anywhere. America keeps giving away its IT knowledge to immigrants, just as it has given away its manufacturing jobs and its agricultural information. Many today do not stay in America as they can now leave and find great paying jobs in their homelands. Foreigners who attend our universities today leave with our expertise and take away with them our jobs. The uneducated poor, however, come here and stay for the welfare, social services, and social security even as our top jobs depart. America is being milked dry.

    Yep, and purposely so.

    Which means what? Which means that it's being done on purpose. For a purpose.

    That's why we need to encourage them to stay. The visa process as is only promotes the idea of returning.
