New Zealand Toughens Immigration: Whither the US?

New Zealand will toughen immigration laws in an attempt to keep out “less productive” immigrants. Read the BBC article.

The U.S. should do the same, at least on a temporary basis. Persons from countries known to support terrorist should be thoroughly vetted or denied entry. Countries we have solid relationships with, such as Canada, Mexico and western European nations, should be favored over those we don’t.

Is doing so discriminatory? Absolutely. Does that make it wrong? Absolutely not. America is under no obligation to allow foreigners onto our soil. Those who do come do so at our pleasure, not the other way around. It’s time that our government remember that.
