    and I don't condone the Cuban and Haitian immigration situation, either.  

    In a perfect world, we would allow a set number of regular visas from every country, based upon the already long standing criterion...and then conduct a lottery allowing a much smaller number of people who would not otherwise qualify for a visa to immigrate.

    That way, we could maintain the same level of "normal" immigration, and spread the number of admissions to poor people who are seeking a better life amongst a much wider number of countries and cultures.

    The end result would be roughly the same number of immigrants, if you could truly control the borders, but a much more diverse group of immigrants.

    Can anyone see anything wrong with that?

    Oregon: Sure...it's cold. But it's a damp cold.
