    Trump, as a candidate, paraded laid-off IT workers onstage and called for the end of the H-1B visa program
    And now let me introduce Ginni Rometty, one of my business advisors....

    Oh the irony.

    Bunch of racists imagine controlling immigration into your own country

    You will still be able to travel and stay in a lot of countries on your EU passport. Time to become a nomad developer, work remotely, and move from one country to another every 2-3 months.
    You're awesome! Get yourself a t-shirt.

    I always thought the reason they banged on about the "Australian points based system" was because that was the only system of managing immigration that they had heard of. Seems I was right.

    No I'm applying for permanent visa (189). Time to leave where it's stable so I don't need to worry about not being rich in few years....
