Are they immigrants or merely foreigners filing for patents here?

Better than stealing bitcoins for half of patents filed in America.

WTF is wrong with subby and TFA author?  You do not need to be a citizen or resident of the US to obtain a US patent.  It has nothing to do with immigrants.

Nice premise for an article - immigrant influence in American history and all that... it would be a shame to get to the end of that article and have the editor casually inform you that the steaming pile of shiat you could barely make it though is pretty much meaningless.

TFA:  Correction, April 10, 2014:The headline on a previous version of this post misstated that immigrants hold half of all U.S. patents annually. Those patents are actually held by noncitizens of foreign origin.

how many of those patents were developed by the masses from latin america with no more than a 5th grade education and rudimentary English skills - at best - and that make up 85% of our immigration total and are responsible for driving DOWN real male median wages and especially black male wages since 1972? 42 farking years of declining wages.

oh, not one single patent was filed by a non educated low skilled third world immigrant peasant invited here big business to toil for peanuts and reduce their labor costs while society picks up the tab for overall lower wages and higher unemployment? you don't say.
