Bernie’s thoughts on work visas for international students?

Right now there are a plethora of international students that are studying in the best schools in the US- Wharton, Stanford, Harvard, you name it. They have the potential to add to the economy if they can obtain a work visa.

The fact that obtaining a working is based on a lottery and not given to those who are willing and able to work (who, as virtually all economists agree, are a net positive to the economy) is a national disgrace, based on old policies riddled with xenophobia, racism and counter productive measures arising from prejudice.

Policies about DACA, illegal immigration from Mexico and refugees are talked about a lot but nary a thought is given to those that would not only earn their keep but also provide a fresher breath of air in this nazi riddled environment.

The talking points that republicans use to push their anti immigration rhetoric falls apart when the topic of working visas for international students are brought up-

1) They can’t use their “crime” talking point

2) “They’re taking our jobs!” falls apart when you consider the fact that international students living in US would be purchasing goods and services inside US (there can even be a stipulation about the amount of Us goods they must purchase to keep their visa), pay taxes (can even pay higher taxes than national residents and those taxes can be used to fund UBI) And if they’re sent back then they’d work in their home country and export the goods to the US anyways, thus the jobs would lost without all the upsides mentioned above.

3) “Muh culture” falls apart as well because college is the time we are exploring ourselves and US immigration is a streamlined process that ensures that the immigrant is integrated into society.

Regarding the old age argument

He’s in pretty good shape for his current age and we’ve all seen how incredible his energy levels usually are (Definitely resembles that of an individual a lot younger than him!) I’m deeply hoping people don’t allow such a thing as age to cloud their judgment, and that they focus solely on everything that he represents. In the unfortunate case that something were to happen to him during his first four years in office (May he be granted many more years of life on this beautiful green planet we call Earth) Bernie’s VP (surely he’ll be picking a true progressive to be by his aside) will pick up right where he left off and help try to make the plans he had for the nation become a reality.

I'm a citizen and resident of Australia. Needless to say, I believe in Bernie for a better future for the world. I was reading his AMA today and thought of contributing $ 27. The landing page says I must be a US citizen or resident. Is there anyway for non US residents to contribute? Thank you.

Looking for resources to debunk anti-Bernie smears.

Has anyone done this yet? Compiled a list of all the most common anti-Bernie smears in one place and debunked each one with sources? Sorry if this has been asked about before or is common knowledge.

It's hard to dig through the mountains of articles smearing and misrepresenting Bernie.

Anyone remember the RAPID RESPONSE team?

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

I remember back in 2016 we had a rapid response app that linked up with Twitter and would auto-publish responses from the campaign on our personal Twitter accounts.

With Trump's re-election announcement happening right now and Bernie's official response after, it seems like it would be good to have this again.

Anyone know if this is being worked on or coming back?
