    Mark "Facebook" Zuckerberg started a front group called (don't laugh) Americans for a Conservative Direction.
    His co-founders are executives from Microsoft, LinkedIn, Groupon, Yahoo, Cisco, Paypal, Nexflix, Google...
    You don't suppose they have a hand in the lobbying effort to pass amnesty? Naw. Couldn't be. Our elected officials are above reproach. Everything they do is for the citizens of the USA.
    If only that were true.

    Who will pay for all this technology? Which campaign donors of Mr. Hatch will benefit from all this?

    I read that in fact, there is a surplus of domestic STEM graduates. I'm for immigration reform, but it would be nice to hear facts instead of stale political talking points.

    We don't need them, they will only add to the unemployment of Americans. Most STEM graduates have to work in other fields, because their are not enough jobs to go around.

    For once in your life Hatch, have compassion for the people who elected you. Your not running again, you don't need businesses money, be a hero.

    The FACT is that a majority of US engineers beyond their 40s are now either unemployed or underemployed, while half of our nation's STEM graduates are unable to find work in STEM fields. Yet 30-50% of all new IT jobs go to foreigners arriving in the US on temporary work visas.

    Every FACT and unbiased study has shown there is no "skilled worker shortage" -- it is a LIE. And indeed there's an abundance of Americans with every bit of smarts, skills, and education to fill any and all job openings -- past, present and future.

    These FACTS are well-known in corporate boardrooms. But cheap labor has been a boon to their profits (at a six decade high) and massively profitable foreign interests (the top ten users are off-source outsourcing companies and six headquartered in India).

    Read “Guestworkers in the high-skill U.S. labor market: An analysis of supply, employment, and wage trends” to bypass corporate propaganda. And search on “Cohen & Grigsby video” or "H1-B SCAM" for the reality of today's job market.

    Destruction to the nation's base of engineers, scientists and technology workers is NOT in the interests of country or citizens.
