Here's the backdrop: Bill Gates has long argued for loosening
our Visa rules so companies such as Microsoft can bring in smart people.
Bill made this same case in a speech
a few weeks ago in front of the U.S. House of Representatives.
I happen to agree with him. I'm pretty hardcore when it comes to illegal immigration
-- and not because I dislike immigration. Just the opposite; I love immigration.
My feeling is that illegal immigration restricts a country's ability to welcome
legal immigrants. A country should be able to define its immigration strategy,
and has the right to give preference to highly educated immigrants.
I know some people are threatened by smart newcomers stealing the best jobs;
things might get more competitive. But how many startups are started up by foreigners?
Smart immigrants build economic leadership, invent new things and create some
pretty sweet jobs.
