    Either way, no requirement anywhere to speak English.
    That needs to be changed. That is awful.

    Hopefully that will be changed in the near future and should be a provision included in immigration reform.

    Well, why would anyone apply for citizenship if they can just stay here without ever becoming a citizen?

    There definitely have to be some provisions. We don't just give anyone a green card. What are the qualifications for getting a green card? Do you have to know anything at all.

    Can anyone who is offered a job here just get one without any kind of medical examinations, vaccinations, and not knowing anything about how the country works? This doesn't sound right. I'm thinking there are definitely some stipulations.

    I haven't heard anything about changing green card laws. The only thing I've heard is that they want to simplify the path to citizenship, not residency.

    Well since you seem to be such an expert . . . is there a limit on the number of green cards issued? If so, how many? If a person can just keep renewing their green card, what is the point of even having a citizenship test? I didn't see in your link mentioned anywhere about special provisions, or do they just give them to anyone who wants one?

    Do they have to have a medical examination, vaccinations? Do they have to know anything about our laws? What about drivers licenses?

    I think there is a medical exam, yes. And no they don't just give them to anyone. Even the yearly green card lottery is not really a lottery at all and there's definitely some deliberate selection going on.

    right, we just don't give anyone a green card. But that isn't the same as having a requirement for being proficient in English

    Well, they have been posted here multiple times, by you and in posts you responded to ....
