McCain on H1B: I’d do it different

CARLSBAD, Calif. — After listening to Sen. John McCain explain how the immigration bill is a compromise reached with securing borders as the first priority, I noted that the tech executives in the next room here at the D conference may see the caps on H1B visas as a barrier to their competitiveness. I also asked if he’s concerned about the message the country is sending to the potential employees of those companies abroad.

McCain said he would have written that part of the bill differently. “I have strongly supported increases in H1Bs” he said, during a little press conference for local media before he spoke to the conference.

I’m writing this on an Hewlett-Packard TouchSmart in the lobby. Martha Stewart is standing about 15 feet to my right. Nearby, Steve Ballmer and Steven Sinofsky are yakking by another one of the TouchSmart’s that HP has on display.
