Terrorists or scientists, which do you prefer?

November 30, 2012

Every year, the United States hands out 50,000 Green Cards – the right to live here permanently and become a citizen in five years – to random people around the world. This brainchild of Ted Kennedy’s is one of our dumber programs, even among immigration policies that often make Homer Simpson look smart.

There is virtually no vetting of these “lottery” winners. One of them proved that diversity is our strength by shooting up the El Al counter at LAX.

Today, the House voted to hand those 50,000 Green Cards instead to foreign students who earn advanced degrees in science and technology at American universities.

The Obama administration? Opposed, of course. And, since America is now a socialist paradise, they’ll win and we’ll lose. We’ll continue to import terrorists so that we may have more “diversity.”

But, if there’s one piece of good news in all this, it’s that this sort of intransigent irrationality is precisely what may kill “comprehensive” immigration “reform”. Democrats will inevitably push so far that even the usual limp-wristed milquetoasts – McCain, Graham, Hatch, Boehner – may find the Devil’s Bargain not worth pursuing. They do have careers to worry about after all.

    Ahh yes – more “science and technology” students from Red China, “neutral” Pakistan, and our friend the Saudis.

    If they don’t blow us up first, they’ll take the knowledge they got here, take it back home with them, and develop things (weapons, war policies, economic policies) to eventually cripple us. Even if the U.S. collapse meant their own country’s collapse – it’s the short term, not the long term. Anything to crush the U.S.

    And we’re the suckers for taking them in. All in the name of diversity . . and an equal playing field, globally speaking – zero’s big plan!!! Fun, fun, fun!!!!

      Um, giving them Green Cards is a good idea. The number of American Computer Science grads has dropped by half in the last few years.

      We needs them furrners to stay here, not take their learnins back home.

    importing brains sounds better than importing dependency

    They often have to take them back home, as the US gubmint is at war with their careers, and potential employers, here in the US.

    IF the left were TRYING to make the US a third world country, would they be doing anything differently?

    We need more home grown science/tech grads and the incentives to motivate folks into those fields, or at least the removal of barriers.

    But hey Womyn are getting all the degrees now, so you can bet there will be less, not more, science/math/tech based degrees than ever before.

    Failing. Falling. Fallen.

    In too many cases they are one and the same. Who can tell the difference??????????????
