Why do we import millions of guest workers when we only have 105,492 technology jobs per year open?

Our technology jobs are the most prized on earth because of the pay.

We have plenty of Americans, many of them Veterans like myself, who have the skills our employers say they can’t find.

Yet we go without work so that nonimmigrant guest workers on visas like the H-1B can pursue their American Dream at our expense.

Many well paid lobbyists will convince your political representatives that this is not true, but the data shows otherwise.

The data comes from here if you want to check my figures.
