Aren't engineers "constituents"?

Biggest problem I got with this argument, it's cheaper to go the "high-value engineering center" route than go to the trouble of importing engineers.

Finally, with declining education performance aggravated by illegal alien population growth (people who're far less likely to care if their kids partake in the American dream), do you really find it hard to believe there's a shortage?

In my experience, these figures are used by the government to argue the need for more B1 visas to satisfy their constituents' desires for lower cost engineers.

Take a look at item 3 on the third page.

20,000 more engineers and early admission!
Is there a similar trend emerging in other states as well?
