Immigrants must learn English; have sponsors; & be talented

I'm in favor of Legal Immigration. It's a win-win situation for both the immigrant and the United States. All immigrants entering the country should be pre-screened to make sure they satisfy the following criteria:
  1. Have an overwhelming desire to assimilate into our culture and become productive citizens; to embrace the uniquely American values of liberty, personal responsibility, and self determination; and be willing to learn, read, and speak English when interacting in society
  2. Possess a talent or ability beneficial to our society
  3. Have a sponsor, a current US citizen in good standing, able to provide housing and support for the immigrant until becoming self-sufficient
  4. Be in good health and of high moral character.
Illegal Immigration is destructive to our society. By definition illegal immigrants are criminal and impose a significant burden on society. It is highly improper for the United States taxpayers to be required to support immigrants to this country.
