Editor's Comments of the Day
In his article "Some Modest Proposals" Gary Endelman writes that now is the time to act. His proposals include eliminating the diversity lottery, an end to the H-1B controversy, viewing employment based immigration as an economic opportunity rather than a necessary evil, forging a new market-based attestation and audit based labor certification system that would protect the wages of US workers and increasing the number of employment based visas. He presents a grand vision which would fundamentally change US immigration law. The article is an attempt to stimulate debate on the best ways to reform our employment-based immigration system. Let the debate begin! Contribute your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org
