Comment: Silicon Liberty - Fox News Latino reports "Can't get a visa to work in the US? One imaginative techie firm is floating an idea to dock a vessel off the coast of California to give foreign entrepreneurs a chance to start a company on Silicon Valley - on a ship. Sunnyvale-based Blueseed Co. says current immigration rules can sink promising ventures and torpedo innovation and job creation. The ship aims to provide a remedy by giving foreign entrepreneurs a place to build their companies only a short boat ride from high tech's hub." While we applaud the creative entrepreneurial imagination behind the floating business incubator, the fact that such a solution is even being discussed points to the self-defeating, suicidal nature of our immigration policy which makes impossible the business creation our economy so desperately needs. Perhaps the ship could be fitted with a statue with the inscription:

"Keep, young land, your immigration laws!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your talented, your innovators,
Your restive entrepreneurs yearning to create businesses,
The magnificent refuse of your inhospitable shores.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside your golden door!"
