Hours after Microsoft announced that it would be slashing 18,000 jobs on Thursday, Sen. Jeff Sessions (A-AL) issued a challenge to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and other Democrats who voted for the Senate's comprehensive immigration bill: Prove that there is a shortage of American high-tech workers.Just a reminder.
