That and the fact that legal immigrants have to wait over 6 years to get their green cards. Stuck in archaic laws which prohibit career advancement whereas anyone from a failed state can manufacture a story on religious persecution and get in and start drawing on the benefits that our government has on tap for such people. Capitalism going wrong - the only to maintain an edge is to get the best and brightest because these people create jobs for everyone else. Our elected officials are only good at rhetoric and preserving their own seat - they could care less about the business' access to retaining talent by creating over-burdening immigration laws just in case the tax-laws were not enough. How can a business succeed when the cost of doing business is so high here and access to talent is becoming more and more difficult while our government keeps expanding programs for people who are not producing and taxing those hard-working folks who are.

It takes a certain courage to pull up roots and travel far to live & work in a strange place. It is similar to starting a company. It happened before with Research Triangle and Austin. The hope is that the flow never stops. It is better to have a might river than a cesspool.
