We could solve most of the immigration issues if the per-county caps were removed.

Per country levels for family-sponsored and employment-based immigrants
Under the per-country cap set in the Immigration Act of 1990, no country can receive more than 7 percent of the total number of employment-based and family-sponsored preference visas in a given year.


There are about 200 countries in the world. Immigrants can come from practically any of those countries. If an equal number of the immigrants came from 14 countries, they would all be at roughly 7%. Of course, nearby countries, Mexico in particular, are more likely have citizens wishing to immigrate here that some country on the other side of the globe.

The seven percent cap strikes me as arbitrary. Why should a would-be visa-holder from Latin America be dependent up the percent of immigrants coming from other countries? More logically whether or person is allowed to immigrate into America should be decided individually regardless of their country of origin.

    Curt,

    The Former Truck Driver and his party have been in charge of the Federal Government for nearly two years now.

    The Flatulent Fool's answer to the immigration issue is to open the southern border, not to propose reforms like the one you suggest. It's been a disaster.

    Period.

    Curt- I understand your reasoning.

    There are still many ways to get into the US legally, and without having to claim asylum. These folks are vetted, and as long as they don't commit a crime, are welcomed back into the country. They are the "H" or "L" series VISAs. It is a streamlined process that our State Department, Homeland Security, and Border Patrol love. One of the things about this is the person/ family does not have to be attempting to become a US citizen.

    For the people while they are here. They are under the same employment rules as a US citizen. Hours, pay, vacation, health care, etc. The US company does not have to worry about them and can get the same people year after year. The only requirement is for them to return to their country for 30 days each year. Their companies in their own country, then reapply for the VISA. If the person has not been in trouble, they are approved and fly back to the US. This bypasses the issues with drugs, sex slavery, terrorism, and is a LEGAL way to work here, and be able to send money back.
