Jobs and Immigrants

In reading today’s NYTimes story/obit about Steve Jobs, I could not help noticing that his biological father was identified as a graduate student from Syria. Luckily, at the time, the U.S. did not treat foreigners as presumptive terrorists. Today, I think it is more likely than not that a graduate student from another country — especially perhaps Syria — would find it nearly impossible to remain in the U.S.
In that case, America loses.
