What's really disappointing to me is that it doesn't sound like it's addressing the #2 immigration issue facing our country, which is our wholesale education of foreigners who take their education home and compete against us.
We should offer a hell of a deal for foreigners who've come here to get a higher education. We need their knowledge to play ball for us, since we spent the money to educate them, rather than releasing them back home and completing against us.
Nonetheless, it's good a deal got struck. Clearly the GOP did not want to get framed as anti-reform on this issue.
I wouldn't consider that the #2 issue and honestly don't know if that will be addressed. I read somewhere where they are going to address the high-skilled workers problem though by raising the limit.
