27. Should it cover the non-college students?
Edited on Thu Nov-11-10 04:10 PM by RZM
It certainly is somewhat unfair to them as well. But I just don't feel the college criterion should be there. One of my problems with this bill is like all other immigration 'reforms' we've seen in the past few years, it represents only a tiny aspect of the larger issue. This isn't how it should be done. This should be part of a larger reform package, but of course don't expect to see that anytime soon.
