A Point Awarded to Romney

Romney: U.S. needs skilled immigrants

Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney told the California GOP convention Saturday the United States should encourage foreigners with skills to immigrate, while discouraging those who come here illegally and without skills.

"It is wrong for us to build an absolute concrete wall against those with skills and enterprise," he said, referring to foreign students who come here for advanced study, "and have a wide open door for people with no education and no skills.

First, build a wall and create a system to keep them all out.

Second, devlop a process where we can figure out which outsiders are good and which ones aren't.

The problem is that we have 10-12 million here illegally already. They need to register as an alien or get sent home.

We cannot just give them all amnesty.

I think he should refine that somewhat. We do not need skilled immigrants who are going to take over skilled American's jobs for less money.
And that is happening with Congress's and the President's blessings.

At least in my field - technology.

And it's because the big corporations - like the one I work for - want cheap labor.
