Broken and Obsolete: America’s Immigration Policy

"The Republican Party has taken a tough
stand on the topic. Democrats have their own bright lines. That means
America's immigration system is likely to stay as it is right
now–utterly broken.  We think of ourselves as the world's great
immigrant society, and of course, for most of the country's history,
that has been true. But something fascinating has happened over the past
two decades. Other countries have been transforming themselves into
immigrant societies, adopting many of America's best ideas and even
improving on them. The result: the U.S. is not as exceptional as it once
was, and its immigration advantage is lessening." – Fareed Zakaria, June 18, 2012.
