Immigrant Policy....

By: Ed

I was watching comedy central and heard an interesting immigration policy. Yes, I know it was a joke, but it is still interesting.

After 3 generations, if your family has not made its mark on America, your family is deported. Of course, it would be 3 generations after coming here. That is, Americans here now don't have this, only new immigrants.

Of course there are some problems. For example, not everyone can be upper class. Our economy would crash if this happened. So what is "making your mark"? I would change that to "off all government assistance in three generations." After three generations you show you can sustain yourself here and will actually contribute.

I am eager to hear what everyone thinks and how this could be tweaked to work in the US.
