if we can get a response on LEGAL immigration such as H1B visas.

H1B visas are really not part of the legal immigration program except that employers can sponsor employees for a green card to extend the six year limitation. H-1B Work Visa Frankly, H1Bs bring in the kinds of people that help our ecnomony than the self-selected ones that come across the border. I believe that Hunter is still for keeping the current limitation of 65,000 per year.

You may wish to ask him where he stands on H.R. 938: Nuclear Family Priority Act

The legal immigration reform I am referring to has to do with chain migration and how we select people to come into the country. Canada has a points system that is used to bring in the skills and talents the country needs. We need to adopt something similar and get away from chain migration.

Belay the last. Hunter is one of the sponsors of H.R. 938.

It is late. Mr Duncan supported HR 938, not Duncan Hunter, so my question stands.

Agreed. Since abortion is taking away from a steady workforce, we have to have a more merit-based legal immigration system. Canada isn’t entirely based on merit.

I think fundamentally we have to have people that come-in when industries have wage excessively rising ie far past inflation. Our baby-boomers are retiring, and it would be better if we had a productive class to replace them. Not low-skilled workers whom benefit from our progressive policies.

***I see from this sentence that you don’t know what you’re talking about. The H1B visa program is riddled with fraud. My perception of Duncan Hunter is that he is interested in cleaning out all aspects of the immigration system. You have an agenda that I’m not all that interested in pursuing.
