Our immigration system works just fine. What needs fixing is ENFORCEMENT of our immigration laws. Over 1 MILLION people come to our country legally every year and that is more than most countries combined. That hardly sounds like a system in need of 'reform'. If we made it easier and faster all we would do is make it easier for the dregs of other societies to come here. That is exactly what is coming here illegally now and we don't want them. We want well educated people who can pass the background, financial and medical checks, afford the fees and be optimal choices for employment.(Illegals pay coyotes thousands of dollars to get them over here so obviously money isn't the problem.) France can be less picky if they choose.
