Before you read any information about immigration and citizenship policy, let's think about what is best for the United States.
I think most people agree that the U.S. can't let everyone in the world immigrate to this country. Although we're a huge and rich country, there are limits to the numbers of people we can successfully absorb.
The question is: How should we decide whom we admit to the U.S.?
Do YOU think we should accept large numbers of the world's poorest people who want to emigrate? Why or why not?
Do YOU think we should accept large numbers of the world's smartest, most educated, and talented people? Why or why not?
Do YOU think we should accept large numbers of the people who are oppressed by terrible governments? Why or why not?
Do YOU think we should accept large numbers of the richest people? Why or why not?
Do YOU think we should accept large numbers of people from certain countries? Should we accept people from countries that have people most like the majority of Americans, like European countries? Why or why not?
After you've tried to answer these questions from your own ideas and knowledge, you may want to read this article.
