by Vincent Froio - FOX News is currently covering President Obama's speech on the long term debate regarding Immigration Reform. The good President acknowledges that many immigrants in this country have 'broken the rules' by either illegally entering the United States or overstaying their Visas. Then, he goes on to state that we let many immigrants enter the US legally on Student Visas, that they are educated at our best universities, and then, we do not allow many of them to stay here. As a result of this, the President argues that we are forcing many of our best engineering and computer science graduates to work for our 'competitors' in countries like China. Obama goes on to suggest that this could lead to advancements in high technology in other countries, resulting in the formation of companies like Google and Intel abroad.
Obama's argument sounds good at first. That is, it doesn't make sense for us to educate immigrants and then not allow them to stay in the US, because, inter alia, we could lose our status of being the most technologically advanced society in the world.

Shouldn't we first fix our own problems, especially during these tough times? Is educating immigrants more important than educating US citizens, who are much more likely to form hi-tech companies in this country? Certainly, many of our education problems could be eliminated if Obama put more emphasis on tackling the problems that US citizens face in attaining a decent education, especially in engineering and computer science.
Obama's speech is merely propaganda aimed at a second term in office! When was the last time a candidate ran for office without promising significant Immigration Reform? Yes, it's the same old, same old...
Obama is not a God. I'm sorry to break it to the millions of people who seem to think so, but there has yet to be any man to reach the status of almighty know-all; although some have obviously tried... Read full article
