    I assume all Indians and Chinese are here on a work visa.

      If you’re an Indian engineer, you’re statistically speaking more likely to be on a visa.

      P(visa/engineer) < p(visa/Indian engineer, accent)

      As engineers we probably are at least smart enough to understand probabilities in real life, and not view everything as racist /nor racist.

      Same. I assume they don’t belong here until they prove they do

      Same. I assume people don't belong here until they prove their Native American ancestry.

      I know people that are pissed off about folks on a visa. I'm on a visa, and I'm glad that I piss them off. 😂

      actually DACA is pretty solid. Trump can't just get rid of it anytime soon and with the EAD you can work any job and have more leverage than H1b which is tied to the employer.
