'America wouldn't be what it is today if not for immigration,' Ali Velshi says. 'So it concerns me when America doesn't work as hard as it should to attract the world's best and brightest minds.'

America wouldn’t be what it is today if not for immigration. And America doesn’t work as hard as it should to attract the world’s best and brightest minds. Other countries are racing to recruit foreign workers. They’re taking stock and realizing that welcoming people in is much more economically productive than keeping people out. U.S. immigration policies are broken. We let too few people in and make it too hard for those people to stay, even when they have been educated in America. We have onerous visa renewal processes, when we should be rolling out the carpet to make sure skilled workers never give a thought to living somewhere else. While other nations are racing to create programs to attract skilled foreign workers, America’s fear-based immigration policies are basically scaring skilled workers away.

I wish my grandparents had taken me with them when they returned to Norway after over 30 years… OK, one more time; legal immigration -- good/lawful ---- illegal immigration --- bad/criminal. We good? While Trump followers are fearful of the other and holding Amerika back, China will become the next world's super power.

Yes legal immigration legal legal . Did your network work hard to tamper a jury? ICYMI More Nazis (Wernher von Braun) or Jews (Einstein) to build rockets, nuclear bombs to blow people up? A country with 50 million hungry people, millions homeless, an economy in the toilet for too many has a lot of damn gall to expect anyone but the most desperate.

What about investing in our own people? Best and brightest don't want to come to this cesspool where racist murderers are lionized and the fascist party is not held accountable. BUT, what's the point of attracting the brains and talent, if you then ignore them? 'Attracting'? You mean 'buying' the brains/talent and, I guess, you think that means they do 'as they are told', don't rock the boat and let the organised crime groups(Government) exploit them?

We don't have enough people here to do all of the jobs which need doing.

Solomon Islands' capital under curfew after three days of riotsPrime Minister Manasseh Sogavare claimed foreign powers opposed to his 2019 decision to switch the Solomons' diplomatic allegiance from Taiwan to China were behind the disturbances. When a Muslim ruler makes an honorable decision, the world powers will impose sanctions on him. The Turkish nation must use common sense. If the Turks want to become slaves like the Arabs, then remove Tayyip Erdogan

At this point the US is a worldwide joke because of the GQP. Why does MSNBC hate everyday Americans? Absolutely true. The sad fact is those who really should pay tribute to it are often the first ones screaming against it as though their 'outrage' gives them an elevated status. They are better living and safe countries providing higher education and universities.. reputable institutions are of no use when the cities they exist in are racist, unsafe and insecure afraid of foreigners taking away their jobs and being better thinkers and workers..

Just once I would like to seethe extremists like Lauren Boebert it Marjorie Taylor Greene dive into their family history and find that ancestor that emigrated to the US in pursuit of a better life. And have an honest conversation about it Xiden is too busy inviting the lowlifes and unskilled Well if they’re walking across the border and swimming across the river they are probably not the brightest people in the world .
