    Trump to unveil immigration plan Thursday calling for new merit-based points system

    Lots of things to like here although it doesn't address some issues.

    My guess ... DOA, since too many people have too much riding on not fixing the immigration system.

    Maybe surprisingly to some, I don’t have a problem with this at all.

    I would take as many of the world's doctors, engineers, physicists, entrepeneurs, plumbers, electricians, carpenters, computer scientists, etc. as want to move here.

    Those whose first question is, "what benefits do I qualify for?" ... not so much.

    I don’t really get the diversity lottery system idea. What purpose does that serve other than just letting people in for no real other reason?

    Because I’m very loud here people assume I’m very left. I’m more moderate than it would seem.

    No it's because you take positions you really don't believe in just to argue.

    Oh I believe in my positions...but I love to argue that’s true.

    You'll take the contrarian opinion on anything.
