Is the U.S. entering a new era in immigration?

Hosted by

Under the immigration bill now being debated in the U.S. Senate, skilled and educated workers will be given preference over family ties - a huge shift in an immigration policy that has long favored reuniting families. Is the change overdue?  Will the U.S. lose its competitive edge in global markets without these workers? Why isn't the U.S. producing enough high-skilled workers at home?
