Former Hawaii Governor and current U.S. Senate candidate Linda Lingle released today the fifth web video in a series that has been a highly visible part of her pledge to run an issues-based campaign.
This video on Immigration and Visas, like the others Gov. Lingle has released in preceding weeks, weighs in on an issue critical to Hawaii and the nation. It is available on the Lingle 2012 website and on the Lingle 2012 YouTube channel.
Always putting Hawaii's "people first," Gov. Lingle believes that the most effective means to overcoming the challenges facing our state and country are common-sense solutions. In this video on immigration, Governor explains that the policy on student visas runs counter to America's best interests.
At a time when the nation's suffering economy can least afford it, it is especially counter-productive to encourage students to come to America and study, obtain advanced degrees, and then send these highly-educated, highly-trained individuals back to their countries of origin to compete against us.
Gov. Lingle points out that these individuals are perfectly positioned to be inventors, entrepreneurs, and job creators, and give our economy a much-needed boost.
Gov. Lingle believes that the greatness of America is owed to its strong foundation, built by generations of immigrants. It's clear they came to this country because of freedom, opportunity, and to make a better life in a society where success depends on hard work not fortune of birth.
