America should follow Canada's points system for immigrants

Consider the simplicity of the Canadian immigration system. To enter Canada through its federal skilled worker program, applicants are ranked on a points system. One hundred points are possible, and 67 are required to get an entry visa. Included are English and French language skills (28 possible points), education (25 points), experience (15 points), adaptability (10 points), age (12 points), and job offers (10 points)..

One of the rare times I will ever say this, but America could learn from Canada. We should not give blanket amnesty to 13 million illegal immigrants who are mostly unskilled and may not even speak English. They should each have to apply under the same system that all legal immigrants apply under, and they should be graded using a similar point system as above.

We do not need castes. We just need to enforce border security.

Broseph, why would you recreate this topic after getting slaughtered like a fattened pig in the last one?

Because this is the closest thing SHAL has to human interaction aside from when his sister laughs at his advances?

Like I said in the last topic, there are three ways to become a permanent resident in Canada:

1. Economic migration (this is where they use the point system--note, by the way, that there are a couple different systems used, depending on the type of migrant, and that the Minister has discretion to admit someone who does not have enough points or to refuse to admit someone who has more than enough);

2. Family Class migration (a person with close family in Canada can become a permanent resident, irrespective of language and employment skills);

3. Refugees and persons in need of protection (again, there are no requirements for this kind of migration other than that the person be a genuine refugee and otherwise admissible [eg. not a terrorist or a mob boss]).

Regulations: http://www.canlii.org/en/ca/laws/regu/sor-2002-227/latest/sor-2002-227.html

Read up, Mix.

How is being Mix not a moddable offense yet? Stupidest topics around, and he bumps them over and over.

Why would you remake and then bump a topic where everyone makes fun of you for not understanding what the **** you're talking about?
