I'm conflicted on the immigration issue in the US. On one hand I recognize that we're a nation of immigrants, that our existence is based on this fact. I want to eliminate the negative effects of immigration on my country,, but the way to do that is to make immigration easier for the educated, talented individuals and families who contribute and making it harder for those who will doing nothing more than working for horrible wages and sending them back to their country of origin. Our immigration and naturalization system is skewed in favor of the cheap laborers,, and treats Einstein's as if they're bordering on being criminal. I am going to Québec for a year abroad, there immigrants are given points for knowing French, education, family in Canada, experience in their field. One has to have so many points to be admitted, if one doesn't, one can't enter. That system would work for America. Those here should be given amnesty and a fine. Then reform the INS system, and make it work.
