Real immigration reform

Michael Barone:
To reform immigration, imitate Canada and Australia
...
They encourage high-skill immigration by a points system which gives priority to those who have the capacity to contribute to their chosen country economically and civically. At Ben Domenech's Federalist blog, Helen Raleigh, who immigrated from China to the United States, gives a brief description of the Canadian and Australian systems.

Note that Canada and Australia do not limit high-skill immigration to those sponsored by particular companies, as our H-1B visa programs do. Currently, the lobbyists actively seeking more high-skill immigration are financed by tech companies which use H-1B visas to get cheaper labor than they otherwise could.
...
This sounds much more intelligent than what Democrats are pushing.  Their proposed reforms encourage people with no skills to come here and become dependent on benefits rather than contribute to society.
