Arnaud de Borchgrave’s Friday Commentary column, “Corporate greed and class warfare,” was great. Related to this subject is the abuse of H-1B visas, which allow foreigners to come here and take over American jobs. Indeed, corporate greed has created a situation that affects our national security: namely, by increasing demand for Asian students with engineering and other high-tech backgrounds while discouraging it at home by artificially suppressing wages in the domestic high-tech sector.

Class warfare is not an excuse for our woes — I’m a fifth generation Republican and delegate to the Republican National Committee — but things are completely out of hand. I know people who were making six figures just a few years ago, and today, they are lucky to find work that the Indians and Chinese haven’t taken. I myself make six figures less than I did a year ago, and I’m sure I’m not the only American having a difficult time finding work.
