This describes a brain drain.  People of good educational background are
better off money-wise and can afford to change countries.  No way for peons
to get here, except for the ones from Central and South America.

Aside from those, we should welcome immigrants, such as from India and the
Far East - doctors, Ph.d.s and so on.  Well above the average American.
