Can we at least deport the ones who can't find a job within a couple of weeks?

And this has taken the wind out of the illegals and their movement. Now they can shut up -- they got their big amnesty, no one has to promise them anything more. However it seems like it was a desperate move by Obama, there is no American who is dumb enough not to realize it was a selling out of American unemployed just to try to pick up some votes. Everyone knows it was about votes -- and as far as the votes of the illegal, Obama already had their votes.

There are plenty of jobs available but some people don't have the right skills If you are college educated national unemployment rate is only 5% much lower in IT industry in some firm people have to be got from abroad as not many Americans are available to apply for the jobs available

I found this sentence in the article. I wonder why they felt the need to bring this up when the jobs they are talking about were highly paid skilled jobs? What does crop picking have to do with the artilce? From the article: "Tighter immigration enforcement has squeezed the nation's agricultural sector as farmers from Washington state to Georgia scramble to find enough field hands". Maybe they should try using the unlimited H-2A visas for legal agricultural workers.
You can't train someone to be computer programmer or network engineer It takes 4 years to go to college for that and at least a year experience to do the job efficiently

That's something you'd have to ask the companies; perhaps they don't want to use more money on training people? I myself had trouble finding a job for over a year despite holding a bachelor's degree. The problem was that many jobs asked for 3 years of experience, which isn't fair for newly graduated people.

Just saying that it doesn't make much sense for them to complain that they can't find qualified workers and while a lot of positions go unfilled, if they aren't willing to train workers to meet their needs.
