The difference is not in the attitudes of the people that come here. The difference is in us. We used to let people stay and now we send them home after they get their education or their contract runs out. It's the dumbest possible move on our part. Once we have invested in educating or training someone productive we should encourage that person to stay, not send him or her home.
