    This is from Governor Romney's website:

    Attracting the Best and the Brightest​


    To ensure that America continues to lead the world in innovation and economic dynamism, a Romney administration would press for an immigration policy designed to maximize America’s economic potential. The United States needs to attract and retain job creators from wherever they come. Foreign-born residents with advanced degrees start companies, create jobs, and drive innovation at an especially high rate. While lawful immigrants comprise about 8 percent of the population, immigrants start 16 percent of our top-performing, high-technology companies, hold the position of CEO or lead engineer in 25 percent of high-tech firms, and produce over 25 percent of all patent applications filed from the United States.

    • Raise visa caps for highly skilled workers
    • Grant permanent residency to eligible graduates with advanced degrees in math, science, and engineering

    ---

    While America is the destination for many of the world's best and brightest minds; making it easier for companies to hire these professionals on the cheap while ignoring native born citizens of equal or greater qualifications is an area where I disagree with the governor.

    "Grant permanent residency to eligible graduates with advanced degrees in math, science, and engineering"

    Agree! The shortage of Americans trained in these fields falls in line with the small amount of available education slots in the USA!!

    RNs are one of my pet peeves.

    There are a lot of out-of-work RN's. When the local health department had their latest round of lay-offs, we were flooded with resumes. There are a lot of out of work engineers too come to think of it.

    It looks to me like Romney has a plan for legal immigration for law abiding, educated, job producing persons. And it's not a pathway to amnesty. Do you have a problem with that OP?

    I feel it would be better if he made it easier for companies to hire native born citizens instead of making it easier for them to hire non-natives who will work cheaper.

    That's a fair position. Are you also anti illegal immigration then?

    Really? Please tell us your thoughts on the de-facto Amnesty that Obama just issued. Talk about insourcing foreigners for jobs.
