|I wish that you had provided one question that was true and more accurate of how Reagan immigration plan worked though.
I also have to ask. Are you just opposed to any form of increasing immigration into this country or do you think that there is an ideal way where it would be more agreeable to you.
Anyways I wonder how many of us know any details as to what President Bush's guest worker program will turn out to look like. As far as I'm aware nothing has really been fleshed out and my prediction is that from the negative response to his proposal that it will be a severly watered down proposal or DOA. But that's just a guess.
I'm for maintaining the current levels of immigration (with certain adjustments to family reunification, described in the "Eighteen Illegal Alien Solutions" link), while we get the Illegal Alien situarion under control.
At that point, I think it will be easier to determine what adjustments, if any, ought to be made to our overall legal immigration levels.
While we don't know all the details, the President did offer a pretty clear outline of the direction in which he wanted to go.
Between that and his history of reluctance to confront the Illegal Alien mess, it's obvious his vision is the wrong one. I don't want a watered down version of anything like what the President is suggesting we do with Illegals. I don't want to allow any incrementalism for an abysmal plan.

Interesting. I think a large problem with current immigration policy is the family reunification act. Personally I've been contemplating if it wouldn't be better to allow immigrants in based on their talents, qualifications, education, and diligence. It would seem more beneficial to me if we let immigrants in based on their potential to contribute something based on society, as opposed to lettign someone in just because they happen to be cousins with this guy.
Some immigrants often like bringing their parents over whom are well past working age and the only contribution in which they're capable of is siphoning from the SS system and medicare.
