I agree with no more chain migration - spouse and children ONLY - period. No more "re-interpretation" of immediate family to include every relative you can think of up to your 22nd cousins thrice removed.

Our current immigration system is fine. We set the bar very high for workers to come emigrate here, which we should. However people don't realize the family loophole in our immigration laws. While we make it almost impossible for workers to emigrate here based on their skills, we make it much easier for family members to come here, even relatives that don't have any skills to offer. We prefer letting the welfare scrounging illiterate relative of a naturalized USC in rather than the Ph.D. with no family connections here. In other words, in the U.S. to emigrate here it depends on who you know (well in this case related to) rather than what you know
