If one looks at the history of immigration restrictions, it is very clear that from the very founding of the U.S., legislators were looking for immigrants who could contribute to the growth and strength of the new American nation. Numbers of immigrants from countries and ethnic groups were carefully selected based on beliefs, characteristics, and experience with those who had already immigrated. It needs to be fixed. After all, we discriminate on who we date, who we marry, and the characteristics of the employees we hire in our organizations. Why would we want to dilute the pool from which we select people for such roles? Do we have to invite the needy to live in our home or can we simply provide aid where they reside?
