Adversity.Net Biography

Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should the Government Allow Immigrants Who Are Here Illegally to Become US Citizens?"
Reasoning:

“The alliance between contribution-hungry politicians and profit-hungry Silicon Valley patrons has resulted in HUGE increases in issuance of ‘temporary work visas’ to skilled foreign workers who replace U.S. Citizens in our high tech industries. Industry hype is that the U.S. can’t supply enough skilled workers, but what Silicon Valley really means is that they don’t want to pay decent salaries to U.S. workers. Older U.S. citizens are being frozen out of the Valley by this policy — digital age discrimination for the millennium!”
