TIME: The Supreme Court’s Immigration Decision Hurts Every Single American

By Time, June 24, 2016 

All of America lost. Even those celebrating the split Supreme Court decision on United States v.

  1. Our immigration system is not broken. it is actually more lax than most other westernized countries already. Try getting into the UK or Australia as an uneducated person with no useful knowledge or skills. You can't. They don't want you. They both use a point based system where highly educated and/or highly skilled people only really have to fill out the forms as a formality. If you are Ivy league educated or are a doctor, engineer, or scientist, you're pretty much in. If you're a smelly, ignorant serf, then not so much.
