Is banning things going to make America great?
Would you support banning computers from America? How about oil?
It’s insane to keep the tools of productivity out of America. But U.S. immigration policy is doing just that, and Donald J. Trump seems dead set on making it worse.
The most valuable resource on earth is highly skilled labor. Highly skilled labor turns 40 cents worth of plastic and metal into an iPad. It turns a little more plastic and metal into an MRI or PET machine. It turns a few knives and power tools into life saving surgery.
Skilled workers dine at restaurants, buy clothing, and support many other businesses. They often eventually start businesses and create jobs.
If Trump really wants to put America first, he will do everything he can to bring highly skilled labor here, instead of continuing on his lunatic plan to curtail our supply of human capital.
1. Eliminate the H1 cap entirely. Stop keeping out skilled workers, job creators, and entrepreneurs who create jobs.
2. Remove the insane laws that prevent doctors trained in the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Korea, Japan, Canada, and other advanced countries from practicing medicine here (unless they fulfill the impossible and preposterous requirement to redo their residencies) literally costs lives while driving up the price of healthcare.
Remove those laws, and let’s save lives and money.
Instead of outsourcing jobs, let’s insource the skilled workers that do those jobs. Instead of having computer programmers in Asia spend money at businesses in Asia, let’s bring them here and let them spend that money here. They’re working for American companies anyway. They are “taking jobs” anyway. Why not allow them to also patronize American businesses?
Let’s stop keeping out great customers and job creators. Let’s put America first by bringing the best and brightest here.
