Zuckerberg is the money behind the farcical group called "Americans for a Conservative Direction." They have purchased TV and radio time to tell us that amnesty is a good thing and is supported by conservatives.
Well, that's not true. This amnesty is all about cheap labor, whether it's about washing dishes or writing code.
How dare they import cheap labor at a time when fewer Americans than ever are participating in the labor market?
The lack of integrity displayed by Hatch in this matter is appalling.

Whether to believe Zuckerberg, Gates, and countless other entrepreneurs and technology heavyweights, as well as a seasoned Senator who has no aspirations for re-election, all of whom have the ability to outsource jobs to China and India...

OR

to believe "Say No to Bo," who says its a grand conspiracy to exploit "cheap labor" - hmmmmm.

I think I will go with the smart people on this one!

southmtnman, you are terribly naive. The Senate-passed legislation enriches corporations and elites while leaving our middle-class and poor to confront two decades of increased unemployment and falling wages. FACTS confirmed by the CBO.

Does this sound like a good thing to you??? Even with real unemployment near 15%, stagnant wages, escalating poverty and an abundance of workers with the skills, education and intelligence for every available job.

Open your eyes. This is legislation written by lobbyist and then wrapped as "immigration reform". US corporations have already spent over 1.7 BILLION to advance passage. And their potential profits are in the TRILLIONS.

This has little to do with human compassion. And everything to do with control of American government, corporate profits and GREED.

I hope we shall crush… in its birth the aristocracy of our moneyed corporations, which dare already to challenge our government to a trial of strength and bid defiance to the laws of our country.
