The immigration issue that is "boring" so many Americans would appear to be an upcoming priority of President Obama's Administration according to this article in today's New York Times.
A Taxpayer's Memo to the New Administration:
1) Streamline and process paperwork faster.
2) Take out corruption.
3) Civilize the entire process from the beginning to the end.
4) Open up the front door.
5) Inspire dignity and banish humiliation.
6) Respect all applicants.

My skepticism abounds. Concerning American government reforms: "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is."
