What kind of country destroys the job market for its own citizens?

The United States, where firms have job listings that purposefully seek foreigners on non-immigrant visas as a employment prerequisite.
Gentle reader, when you read allegations that there is a shortage of engineers in America, necessitating the importation of foreigners to do the work, you are reading a bald faced lie. If there were a shortage of American engineers, employers would not word their job listings to read that no American need apply and that they are offering jobs only to foreigners holding work visas.

What kind of country gives preference to foreigners over its own engineering graduates?
