We are talking about high skilled specialists here. Be they gay, liberal, black. Ethnic background, political views or butt pirating will not matter much when this person will generate revenue. Russian colleges and universities are not in the best shape at the moment and brain influx wouldn't hurt
I'm not interested in helping prop up corporations by allowing them to import "highly skilled specialists" from foreign countries.
There are several hundred thousand under-employed and unemployed engineers and engineering technicians in the USA, we don't need to import any new ones from China or India.
For that matter, I would rather America revert to a largely agricultural based economy than be an economy focused on heavy industry if being focused on heavy industry came at the price of having to accept 15 million Indians and 20 million Chinese into the nation.
There are things more important than the profit margins of the major global corporations.
With that said, keep in mind that there are millions of people in the USA who have training, some even have varying amounts of experience, yet they are out of work.
Companies would prefer to hire an Indian or Chinese engineer who barely speaks English and doesn't really qualify as an engineer by American/Western standards, instead of giving the job to a young White American man who just graduated college.
