    We have the opposite problem here, where the Society for the Protectin of Unborn Children is teaming up with advocates of Shariah and the Caliphate to oppose women’s reproductive rights. As it happens I used to be a member of SPUC, but left when I got wind of this.

        I’m fully in favor of comprehensive immigration reform and the protection of immigrant rights and a path to citizenship, but I’m wary of the proposed bill’s current position on high-skill immigration. Sharply raising the number of H-1B visas and stapling a green card to everyone who earns a Ph.D. in the United States is a fantastic way to undercut the value of U.S. high-skill workers and drive down wages for everyone, while businesses get high-skill labor for much, much cheaper. If there’s a legitimate demand for foreign high-skill workers, fine, but so far the only evidence for that has been CEOs crying they can’t find U.S. employees—despite stagnant wages for a decade that certainly don’t indicate a low-supply/high-demand situation. If the proposed bill can get its high-skill immigration reformations to better reflect reality, I’ll have a much easier time supporting them.
