That's how best-selling author Thomas Friedman describes the anti-H-1B measure passed in the Senate last week. He has an excellent opinion piece in the New York Times defending the H-1B visa program and explaining why we need MORE, not fewer, talent workers in the US if we are to revitalize the economy and keep the US on top. Friedman reminds readers that more than half of the start up companies in Silicon Valley were started by immigrants, a sizable portion of whom were originally on H-1B visas. That's a track record that shows that H-1Bs are job creators.
