As a US Immigration Visa Lawyer, I have come to believe this country desperately needs new US immigration reforms. I formed this belief a long time before our Congress began its immigration debates.
In my work, I had come to see many faults of our
current policies. Particularly, there are some injustices that "go on"
in today's system.
What are they?
People who should stay are being deported.
People who should leave USA are staying regardless of their current
As this company's US Immigration Visa Lawyer, I
believe all immigration policies have to be based on one simple
principle. People who contribute to USA's economy the most should
always be allowed to stay. People who create more problems by
committing crimes, for instance, should be deported.
It is a simple principle that will work. By the
way, when I talk about contribution to US economy, I do not mean only contribution from professional people. That is, people with degrees who have some
specialized body of knowledge.
You can contribute to this economy by cleaning
toilets or doing a farm work. After all, America needs people who clean
toilets, move furniture, and do babysitting. In many situations,
American people do not want these jobs anyway. Why not let the
foreigners do them? Someone has to fill these positions too.
We can regulate our immigration more if we allow people to fill these positions legally.
As a US Immigration Visa Lawyer, I also believe we
should implement many Canadian policies. In terms of its resources, USA
tends to be more wealthy than Canada. However, people tend to be more
happy and satisfied with the direction in which Canadian government is
For instance, you do not see too many homeless
people there. You do not see many unemployed people. You do not see too
many people using its welfare system. Here, we have a riot for public
benefits. I think it is because Canada has "smart" immigration policies
in place. These policies obviously do work. Otherwise, the country
would have been a "mess" by now.
If we do not know what immigration policies we
need to adopt, we must look at Canada and some European nations, such
as Sweden. We would have been better off than we are now if we did so a
long time ago.
All our immigration problems stem from being in
denial. For years, our society refused to acknowledge we have
immigration problems. What is worse is we were not willing to do
anything about them. In the mean time, these problems "grew" and
I, as a US Immigration Visa Lawyer, believe we
still can correct our US immigration system. We just need to look at
our neighboors for help.
