    Rubio has a very sensible plan to deal with current illegal immigrants and future immigration in general. It's a proposal that both parties should be able to come together on and support. The question is whether or not the Republicans will continue to be their own worst enemy.

    How is anything he proposes "common sense"? He's calling on raising caps on the visas we hand out, bascially importing more workers.

    And why is that a problem? He's calling for more workers in fields where we aren't producing enough of our own citizens to fill the demand, like math and science.

    You're right.

    It makes much more sense to allow millions of ILLEGAL immigrants to flow across our borders like locusts, suck up as much free social services as possible, and then be granted amnesty by the Obama adminstration.

    Why bother having a LEGAL means of immigration?

    For that matter, why bother having BORDERS at all?

    Coming to the US legally is very difficult, making it a simpler process that doesn't favor the very wealthy but puts more emphasis on skill is important. I agree with Rubio, very common sense stuff.

    Rubia is anti-America and anti-American. We have a more than generous legal immigration system that allows over a million is each year, including asylum seeker and refugees. we have more than 31 million foreign born people living in this country and we cannot afford open immigration system that allow anyone who want to come here come in.

    But we are producing enough to fill the demand, the companies do not want to pay American wages. A foreign engineer will work for considerably less than an American engineer. The GOP wants to lower the wage for skilled workers just as they have for the unskilled.

    We can't fill the science field because Americans know the jobs won't be there. Either places are not hiring or they are being filled by foreigners who were imported.

    Except under an H1B Visa, the sponsoring employer cannot undercut the average wage in the field. I'm sure there are ways around it, as there are ways around everything, but by current law you cannot import cheaper skilled labor, you have to give the prevailing rate.

    Oh yeah, all across America high school kids are sucking at math and science because they are taking that into consideration. And American college kids are majoring in Film Studies because they are afraid they won't find a job when they graduate if they major in Engineering or Physics.

    :rolleyes:

    Exactly. And you have to first demonstrate that you tried to fill the position with a qualified American applicant.
