> I'm not, the US is rightfully trying to stem the flow of russian immigrants to this country. The Russian government intentionally permitted its criminals (real criminals, not 'political dissidents') to leave their borders and head to the United States.
> As far as I am concerned anyone immigrating from russia after the 1970's was unnecessary, ironically even russia cared enough to not permit its criminals leave its borders.
> MS was at one point one of the largets employers of russian immigrants.
> The russian immigrants I knew years ago, all they could think about was microsoft. Even today mentioning Unix or Linux garners a smirk from them.
> H1B visa 'students' are given an advantage over a domestic student only because they are foreign. There are too many loopholes that are designed to 'level the playing field'. Furthermore, the education system is forced to be dumbed down for the sake of the students who either barely speak a word of english, or think everything about this country is a joke.
> The two largest users of the H1B visa are the IT industry and the modeling industry. The H1B visa system is a farce imposed on the American public. The software company's are using it to saturate the IT workforce market.
