(Disclaimer: no, he wouldn't let ME or my husband immigrate... we each fall 5 points short.)

So TIME magazine ran an interesting feature about the RAISE act (the proposed legislation) and changes that it would make to the immigration policy. As part of this, they went through the RAISE act and quantified it, turning it into a checklist for things that would get you into the country. They used the numerical scoring list and we all took it just for the heck of it.

here it is

I don't qualify. In fact, there's no period of our lives when either my husband or myself would have qualified (after he hit age 45, he was a very highly paid engineer for Raytheon but wasn't quite to the $103,000 mark in salary in the 1990's. One of my classmates went on to be an Olympic athlete...but I'm sure not anywhere in that class.

Personally, I think we should ask our politicians if they qualify. That could be terribly amusing.

So how about it... did you qualify?

Sounds like 'the bar' has been raised to an acceptable level.

Personal to Byrd-Brains: If the decision were mine, I'd let you stay.

Well according to this if I was not who I am, and I was in fact a foreigner to this country I would not. I am 26, I have a High School Diploma with some college completed, I have a job but I get 0 points as it doesn't pay nearly 70 so thousand, and I'm not a nobel winner or a gold medalist.... and I don't have millions in foreign currency. I'm SOL.............

So you actually think that "Quiz" in the article is going to be the "Guidelines".

No wonder.

Don't usually agree with you Byrd but see I certainly would not be allowed in mostly due to age. But my profession has and likely always will need foreign applicants to meet the need in the medical field.

Is there a link to actual requirements?

I wouldn't.

I have no problem with that.

I also wouldn't have been allowed under Bill Clintons proposed plan, or welcomed into Australia, or Canada under their systems, but I don't remember them being called evil for it.

Us poor folk without masters degrees or Olympic medals are just SOL, aren't we?

Husband could qualify with his work experience. Most jobs he qualifies for in this country put him well over the threshold on salary, but only if he leaves the company. However, if he were coming in from abroad as a corporate transfer, I assume the company would be going to bat to try to transfer him in and that would be under different rules than pure immigrant.

I missed the question about being a licenced "Limo" driver.

For the "You Know Who" crowd.

Good. Our average citizens shouldn't have to be worried about being replaced by average foreign people. Immigration should be about helping Americans, not helping foreigners.

Not me.
I don't mind though.
Two of my sisters already live there so it makes my life much quieter so it has its benefits.

Also, I wouldn't leave the UK for anything.

Edit adding my agreement to TruMcarthys sentiment above. How it should be.

If you can't get into the US, maybe you should try Canada?

Oh, wait... Canada has had a strict merit-based immigration system for decades. Wealthy American's can't even get in.

Dear Americans: moving to Canada is hard

This is a thing?


Have you won an Olympic medal in the past 8 years?


FFS.

I see they have have kept something for the EB-5 crowd too but they've made it a little more expensive.

I'm three points short. If only I had some money to invest in a condo at one of the Kushner properties.

Somalia is 100% "Voluntary".

Maybe Laos too.

Well there's one sure fire way to get into the United States: marry Donald Trump.

Apparently, Trump wouldn't qualify to immigrate to America under his own proposed system.

You do qualify. You are a natural born citizen.

Or be from Pakistan and be willing to work with Democrats as an IT guy for millions of dollars to break laws and blackmail members of congress.
