    Precise and concise and to the point that even a child can understand...

    "Beyond the economic boon of high skill immigration -- nothing to scoff at for a country in fiscal shape as bad as ours -- a system that sought talent would do three things: 1) lessen the burden on the Americans who are least equipped to compete with immigrants in competition for jobs; 2) act as a counter to the populist notion that immigration is bad for America, thus ensuring that future immigrants will continue to be welcomed and lessening social tensions; 3) were the system set up the right way, it might also create good incentives in various countries, encouraging remittance-hungry governments to set up educational opportunities for their best and brightest, and basically extending the American dream to young ambitious people who'd perhaps think of our country more favorably given the prospect of being able to immigrate here if they reach certain meritocratic benchmarks."

    I do not know why people are dissatisfied with the Congress, but I think that the House is doing pretty good job rolling out good sensible bills. Their Healthcare bill was better than the Senate bill, and this one is pretty good, too. I have a feeling the Senate, which was providing leadership for CIR 2006 and 2007, is not going to do this this time around.

    The racists at CIS and FAIR are going to be up in arms pretty soon talking about population control and saving the endangered species, just like the white Aussie xenophobe the former immigration minster Kevin Andrews. I am always amazed at why people like Kevin Andrews want to destroy a good thing..high skilled immigration levels, high foreign investment and low unemployment...no other reason other than racism in my view...and in the case of Aussies the worry about too many Asian (say non-white) mail order brides as well!

    What a great bill! It addresses all the important issues and gives me some hope that we'll get some good legislation passed next year.

    Seems like a good bill but I am sure quite different from the final version, but I like the fact that he gave himself a lot of room for compromise.

    A very sensible & practical approach to a complex problem which can be achieved mostly by tweaking the existing policies. Hope somehow they push the healthcare bill through so CIR can be taken up.

    Senate likely to take a bite first on CIR bill end Jan 10. No action on House Bill expected soon !!.

    Love this bill. Hopefully we can get something passed that still resembles it after it goes through the meat grinder.

    Glad to see provisions for EB immigrants. Hope some thing happens next year.

    287(g) repealed (immediately); employment verification "rolled out in phases". Insert your own punch line.

    Overall, I think it's a good bill. I think it touches almost every major issues I can think of.

    I think this will silence critics saying Rep. Gutierrez only thinks of the undocumented, specially those who wanted to migrate to the US themselves. You know who you are

    I am confident on Rep. Gutierrez and Leader Pelosi passing a House bill. I am not confident on Sen. Reid's leadership anymore even if the Senate passes their version of HC reform.

    Hope, Sen. Schumer can be the leader in the Senate and I hope Sen. McCain will be the leader for the GOP side. Also, I hope Sen. Lieberman will be on our side and this time stop being a controversial figure on almost everything.

    ok, it will never pass.
    any GOP sponsor?

    Saw an interview with Gutierrez last night about this, he said that the Senate will introduce their version some time in January and then the expect debate some time in March. Regarding the timing of reform because the high un-employment situation, he said that he was aware of the un-employment situation but that in this case that has not translated into immigrants were leaving the US, he said they are still here and working, he said that he'd rather make them Tax payers to share in the responsibilities and cost of the recovery, I guess that is going to be their answer to this argument from the other side.

    There wont be any CIR debate in this congress.

    "There wont be any CIR debate in this congress."
    They will pass it without any debate?

    If they don't do anything this time I am looking for a job in Aus/Singapore. You can only play with your career for so long waiting in this stupid GC queue. I was planning to do MBA here but now I am convinced that there is no point in spending money in this country where there are so many restrictions to use that education.

    "They will pass it without any debate?"

    Adi, George's opinion is that CIR will not happen next year for many reasons. And that's his opinion. He may be right or wrong.

    I think you shouldn't be making big decisions just base on someone's opinion.

    But, I think it will pass by 2011.

    "If they don't do anything this time I am looking for a job in Aus/Singapore."

    So am I, and I am a US citizen working for an International Organization. A couple of firms submitted bids for projects in SE Asia. Among the folks they included in the bid were SE Asian citizens. However, H1B has been difficult to come by. I am telling them to move their positions to SE Asia as the project is there and hire them in Singapore..no, not Australia as I dont trust any western countries..not very reliable..you really do not know when they will become xenephobes, shut the door and ruin their very good economies...this guy Kevin Andrews, the former Minister of Immigration in Australia is now the xenophobe No. 1...
