1* In thinking about immigration policy, should the United States treat all potential immigrants equally or should the United States allow more immigrants from some countries than from others?

 

2* Should the United States treat all potential immigrants equally or should the United States give preference to those with higher levels of education and better economic prospects?

 

3* The majority of immigrant visas awarded in the United States are based on a family relationship. A proposal has been made to award visas instead on the level of skills a potential immigrant brings to this country. Do you favor moving to a merit-based system for legal immigration or prefer to keep the existing family-based system?
