Many of us are ignoring the key chanes in the immigration bill. The new immigration bill ends anchor babies, chain immigration and moves to an almost entirely vocational basis for future immigration.
The reality is this will mean that one would need a vocational trade or advanced degree to get into the USA. Famiily ties will account for a mere 10% of the criteria. This means future immigrants will be better educated.
1 India, China, Iran countries with many first rate educational institutions
2 US Colleges Countries that lack excellent colleges will see an even greater influx
of foreign students than ever.
3 Evaluation services will see their business go through the roof.
1 Mail order brides will not be able to sponsor their entire family
2 Poor people both US citizens and those abroad. Unskilled workers on Y visas will compette with HS drop outs. HS drop outs sole advantage was legality.
Those abroad who are unskilled may enter on a Y visa but without education or skills their only option is via the spouse route.
3 Skilled tradesmen Now the plumber may face a legal cut rate foreign competitior.
This may force Union wages in areas such as Truck Driving down.
