RE: Next program of you immigration reform please include below if your time allows. Thank-you for reading my comments. I know immigration debate is going all over the country and now with the economy in stagnation, I just wanted to comment that America is exporting the knowledge back to student's home country by not letting degree-holder students who graduated from schools in America to allow them to a chance of contributing the economy.

This is not really well thought out arguments. Past immigrants came to be Americans, for the opportunities and the responsibilties of being a citizen. In fact, a true immigrant is one that comes through the process. For example, lets say I walk into Mexico, get a job some how, go and demand that the schools teach in english, all the other things that go into living but I say that I want to keep my identity and will tell my kids where they come from etc: you move some where to become some one different. Another example, we have traced a line of our family that immigrated (legally) to India in the mid 1800's from the US. While we were living in India, we were able to find where they were buried and guess what, their name was Smithaswamy..... We are almost all immigrants is true, and legal immigrants are always welcome...I have an Asian wife and we are very proud of all of our several heritage lines but there is no hiding nor worrying about who we are because we know...
