Thoughts on the Immigration Debate, part 2

To add to my earlier comment on last night's AFF roundtable on immigration, Cato's Dan Griswold made a good point there: U.S. immigration policy is currently designed to fill labor demand at high educational and professional levels, by awarding work visas like the H1-B to the most skilled and educated, while neglecting workers at lower skill levels. But what about the middle, specifically that essential component of the middle class, the self-employed small business owner? There is no "metric" to measure entrepreneurship.
