Immigration Law Glitches Need Fixing

Everyday War against Empty Pockets

There’s no money to pay the bills and no job to get money from. The financial baggage that everyone’s carrying is becoming heavier and heavier each day. Standard of living is becoming less and less affordable to the point that almost every American has turned to bad credit loans online.

Some say that this is due to illegal immigrants who take our jobs away. We might want to think again.

Immigration Law Hiccups

Debates on the immigration law in Washington are centered upon the eleven million illegal migrants in the country. But leaders are pointing us at a different angle.

Their attention is on the “greater threat” to the country’s economy that is brought by our immigration law.

Business and academic experts believe that our immigration law is chasing away foreigners with great skills who were educated in the universities in the country. And often, these foreigners’ education were funded by U.S. government programs.

On the Right Direction

The rich businessmen of the 1% are not the ones who can give opportunity to millions of unemployed. In fact, two foreign post-doctoral mechanical engineers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology could – if they wouldn’t be required to leave the country.

The two Indian nationals have started a company that’s selling a system they recently discovered. This system would clear contaminated water caused by fracking or natural gas hydraulic fracturing.

The Indian nationals were sent to Texas and North Dakota by oil companies who want to clear and dispose of billions of gallons of contaminated fracking in Texas.

They’ve announced that they’re about to close in a deal worth millions of dollars in financing. They also said that the project would need hundreds of employees for the coming years.

A Glimpse of Hope with a Glitch

The President is supportive. He agreed that foreigners who earn their masters and PhDs in the U.S can get green cards easier than others.

However, our law makers are clueless on how to craft a reform that will address both skilled and unskilled immigrants.

The managing director of the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship said that while we (Americans) train these people, we are also the ones who push them away.

He also added that while we train and then deport these highly skilled people, other countries such as United Kingdom, Chile, and Canada are taking them in and gaining from them.

If the immigration law remains unchanged, Americans are on their own on how to solve unemployment. We can all drown from our bad credit loans and unmanageable finances together with our dying economy.
