No shit. Care to guess what the linkage between the two are?

BTW, you posted a link to a paywall. #FuckPaywalls

Of course this is a great result to happen so quickly.
More foreign workers drives wages down for American workers.

Two (probably more) of my co-workers are having trouble getting H1Bs. One is a bioinformatics scientist which is hard to find talent in the US. He's Canadian. The other is an Estonian who specializes in training AI models for MRI imaging. Also hard to find.

I'm very pro kick-out-the-illegal-immigrants and also don't like the mid-skill talent getting H1Bs, for instance software testers.

We should be doing what we can to attract the high end talent to this country.

Few people are against honest immigration. What people do not like is the unfettered illegal immigration, and the Disney style abuse of the HxB system.

This is impossible. All the great scientist-economists who are 100% empirically based said this was a myth and could never happen.

So when do we get to drag Paul Krugman out to the street and tar and feather him?
