The immigration issue, as many California residents know, is hotly debated. From the surge in children crossing the border from Central America to the immigration bills being debated in Congress, it is an area that is vastly complex. At the heart of the issue is the use of immigrants to fill both high-tech and low-wage jobs in this country.
Domestic companies are filling low-wage jobs in the U.S. with workers from other countries. Low-paying jobs such as health care aides and domestics use foreign workers to do work American workers generally do not want to do. The W-visas would allow immigrants to work in this country when a high number of vacancies in a job sector arise. Those workers could apply for permanent residency.
