ABSTRACT
The article discusses the U.S. comprehensive immigration reform from 2013, known as Senate Bill 744. Attention is paid to the immigration quotas, the impact of immigration on U.S. workers, and the point system that would assess the economic qualities of the prospective migrants, such as academic degrees or position availability in their field of occupation. The author suggests that the U.S. government tends to accept the migration as an economic tool instead of a human right.
