Foreign Nationals Outnumber Americans in High-Paying, White-Collar Silicon Valley Jobs

Foreign nationals now outnumber Americans in high-paying, high-skilled, white-collar jobs in Silicon Valley, California – the hub of the United States tech industry.

Silicon Valley Leadership Group President Carl Guardino touted the statistic in a report, revealing that 57 out of every 100 jobs in Silicon Valley that require at least a bachelor’s degree are taken by a foreign-born resident.

The revelation comes as President Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, has led an initiative to increase educational funding of the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) fields while ignoring the issue of mass immigration and multiple visa programs that have led to Americans being replaced by foreign nationals.

For instance, Ivanka helped secure $200 million of the Department of Education’s grant funds towards STEM fields, Breitbart News reported.

At the same time, Ivanka endorsed a plan to give amnesty to illegal aliens who have been shielded under a President Obama-created temporary amnesty program. Such an amnesty would have the potential to lead to a chain migration whereby between 9.9 million and 19 million foreign nationals enter the U.S. over the next few decades, further crowding out Americans from the workforce.

When our education system has deteriorated to needing remedial reading as a college course, can't be bothered to teach handwriting, and trigonometry is advanced high school math it's no wonder. Foreign nationals are more proficient in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM)in high school than most of our college grads. While we dumb down our kids with stupidity like new math and supervise lunch calories the rest of the world is flying past us. It is no wonder that because our failed (and failing) school systems turns out graduates of such low ability 57% of quality jobs go to grads more educated than ours.

If you don't get a college degree, you don't get those jobs. If you aren't smart and have a drive to get ahead, you don't get those jobs.
