Tech companies claim that the Trump TEMPORARY ban on immigration from seven nations identified by the Obama administration to be centers of global terrorist activity hurts their ability to find qualified workers.
This begs the question of why the colleges and universities in the USA cannot produce qualified workers.
We know the answer. Workers from India, China, or Pakistan will work a lot cheaper than say a grad from MIT.
I wonder how many employees at the 90+ tech firms who weighed in on the court case against Trump's EO came from Yemen or Afghanistan? Not that there aren't bright people from those countries, but their universities are not world renoun centers of academia and higher learning.
This is about politics and nothing more.
