Many tell us what to think. I ask my readers to be skeptical. Question me and others.


We do not need family sponsored immigration visas

Sen. Lindsey Graham, a Republican from South Carolina is trying to limit immigration visas available now for family members of permanent residents and U.S. citizens. In general, it is good direction. However, the question is should politicians in Washington make decisions of this kind. If an American marries a foreigner, that foreigner should have a visitor’s visa with permission to work for the duration of the marriage. No immigration visa is needed for two people being happy together. The immigration visa is needed if a foreigner wants to use our welfare system. This is exactly what we do not want. However, if a foreigner married to an American legal resident or a citizen lives and works here for a prolonged time – let us say five years – this person should automatically qualify for a green card. In this approach we do not need limits; we do not need immigration bureaucracy.
