    can't have different tiers of citizenship. But beyond that the suggestion that immigrants need to prove they're hard working makes me wonder, have you met or even observed a worker from Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala or China, Thailand or Vietnam?  Anyone who has would know that as a rule immigrants, put in long days of work, frequently the kind that makes you bone weary, with low pay, sometimes not even the minimum wage. If you're looking for the work ethic go see who's doing the gardening, washing the dishes in the restaurant kitchens, taking care of children.

      that they type of work that's done is very hard... I'm also aware that the skillset required for said work could be done by a preteen... Not all work is equal....
