The lobbyists lied to us by reciting the slogan that the "best and the brightest" are foreigners, rather than Americans, and should be imported so we can benefit from their brains and labor. The notion that the best and the brightest are foreigners is false and contemptible, since most of the world's great inventions and innovations are American.
In pursuit of this foolish notion, tens of thousands of foreigners have been imported to take jobs in the tech industries. The corporations welcome this racket because they pay them less than Americans, bring in foreigners for entry-level jobs, force experienced Americans to train them, and then lay off the Americans.
Here's another way the Gang of Eight has betrayed us. They have put in the Amnesty bill special spending, called earmarks, to benefit favored Members of Congress who support Amnesty. For example, the Amnesty bill exempts ski and snowboard instructors from any cap on visas in order to benefit Colorado. The bill exempts meat-packing workers in order to benefit South Carolina, and exempts workers who repair cruise ships to benefit Florida. Those are all states that have Senators who are part of the Gang of Eight who wrote the bill. There are also shocking earmarks for immigration lawyers and community organizers for illegal-alien groups.
