We should allow all immigrants who are willing to work hard and who we are certain are not a threat to our security, provided that they may not receive welfare or other types of transfer payments.

We should hire people based on their skill and our needs, not based on nationality

This bill helps the human race continue to create great things. It encourages more people around the world to get higher education, and work hard for a better future. Silicone Valley wants to hire more engineers to continue the production of the internet, but there are simply not enough individuals capable of contributing. This bill helps helps that effort. We can build a better future together.

Argument opposed

Passing the bill would create a tidal wave of visa applications from a few countries, delaying the approval process for everyone.

Companies wanting to build a work force using foreign people is not in America's best interest. No country should have an advantage to place more people in our country for work purposes.

    Actually, we should greatly prohibit any immigration until we have a handle on those who are already here and until we take care of the homeless people problem which exists today. We have been more that generous as it is. We must, also, mandate what President Roosevelt dictated - that they should speak English and take on our customs. What they practice in their own homes is their business. In public, it's a different matter.

    Eliminate the visas altogether, they are a scam. We have plenty of highly skilled workers here, companies just don't want to pay them...

    We should not allow more people to take American jobs when there are plenty of able people already here. This is just a way for companies to get cheap labor and maximize their profits while contributing little to the community and economy.

    The 7% per-country gap is arbitrary and creates an unfair wait time to countries with larger populations. People born in China and India must wait for 5-10 years for a green card just because of their nationality, during which time they must endure incredibly little career mobility. Changed employer? Start over again. Got a promotion? Start over again. Lost your job? You'll be kicked out of the country literally the day after. Those law-abiding, tax-paying people competed fairly with people from other countries for jobs in the US. They were held against the same bar by their employers and the IRS. However when it comes to employment-based legal immigration, they are punished because of the country they are born in — something they can't change. This is textbook discrimination and against the core values of this country of immigrants. The per-country cap must be abolished to provide equal opportunities for all employment-based immigrants and keep the brainpower in the US.

    Per country cap should remain. Creates a fair market for foreign workers.
