More workers needed
Several people - Gordon Quan is doing it now - have made the point that we need more workers in the economy than what we're allowing in through visa quotas. A woman named Angela Blanchard with Neighborhood Centers, made the point that while the common view of immigrant workers is labor centers, the majority are actually working fulltime jobs with respectable firms. Professor Luis Salinas from UH says "every valid study done by the government and think tanks shows that illegal immigrants pay more in taxes than they cost the government". He specifically called out Sen. Patrick on this issue.
