I intend to agree with Bachmann on this. A good way to reduce immigration from third world cesspools is to insist that all applicants take some kind of standardized test. Although I agree that it would be a pretty good test at keeping the scum out.... There have been calls to just give a literacy test in order to vote in this country... and blacks and Jews have complained that that is racist. Any test of intelligence (even basic reading skills) is too much for them to handle. Bachmann said this below link: Bachmann claims immigration worked very well before 1960s reforms, when nonwhites were excluded | The Washington Independent I think that the American way is not to give taxpayer subsidized benefits to people who have broken our laws or who are here in the United States illegally. That is not the American way. Because the immigration system in the United States worked very, very well up until the mid-1960s when liberal members of Congress changed the immigration laws. What works is to have people come into the United States with a little bit of money in their pocket legally with sponsors so that if anything happens to them, they dont fall back on the taxpayers to take care of them. And then they also have to agree to learn the speak the English language, learn American history and our constitution. Thats the American way.
