The econmic doldrums are due to doctrines of Keynesian economics and socialist thinking.

By the way did I post the link towhat Murray Rothbard said about immigration? He's one of the topmost two "Austrian economists" and libertarian thinkers. He considers government-controlled immigration as "forced integration".

I do believe in voluntary integration and freedom to enter into private contracts.

"However, numerous nonpartisan scholars and studies have determined that
there is a surplus - not a shortage - of American high-tech workers.
Moreover, after a recent Census report found that "74% of those with a
bachelor's degree in these subjects don't work in STEM (science, technology,
engineering, math) jobs," the mainstream media may finally be catching on
and taking away the high-tech industry's "free pass." CBS News, for
instance, concluded that the Census data suggest the high-tech industry's
contention that there is a shortage of American high-tech "is largely a
myth."

Ron Hira, a public policy professor at the Rochester Institute of
Technology, has "said there are 50% more graduates than job openings in the
STEM fields." Microsoft's announcement hammers home his point that the IT
sector has often been "an area of social mobility," and removing the caps on
high-tech guest-worker visas would take jobs away from American workers and
make it more difficult to climb the economic ladder."

Time to take care of Americans first.
