Dear Editor:

I would like to draw your and every body's else attention towards what I perceive as deficiencies or weaknesses in present US immigration benefits. I feel that a large number of immigration quotas are reserved for relatives of US citizens or permanent residents. These beneficiaries have done nothing to earn this privilege, but just by virtue of one of their brothers or sisters having migrated to this country in the past get this benefit on a silver plate. Lawful immigrants who enter this country as students or temporary workers may not get this privilege even if they stay here for ten or even fifteen years and in spite of paying taxes, maintaining lawful status and not getting involved in any crime. I personally think they should have preference over candidates gaining immigration just on the basis of family ties other than spouses, children or parents. In many countries such as U.K., Germany and Switzerland, permanent residence is offered if one has stayed there for a certain period of time, i.e. five or ten years. This also appears much more sound and safe from a security point of view. It is better to naturalize people who have lived and culturally assimilated and have spent some years in this country than to grant immigration benefits to people about their back ground very little is known.
