On Friday, Richard Hoste reviewed Brain Gain: Rethinking US Immigration Policy in  Establishment’s Next Ploy: Hand Immigration Policy Over To Bureaucrats!

I was interested to learn that Mexico`s Armenian-Mexican ambassador, Arturo Sarukhan likes the book,   saying.

Brookings expert Darrell West provides insightful approaches for American immigration reform in his book �Brain Gain�
Of course, Mexico may be experiencing a "brain gain" from immigration, gaining doctors, scientists, and Armenian diplomats, but no one thinks that America is experiencing a "brain gain" from Mexico. There are some reasonably brainy people in Mexico, but they`re not leaving.In fact, I expect that the demographics of the people who have left created a net brain gain for Mexico.

What Sarukhan is really interested in is Darrell West`s idea of turning immigration over to an Board of some kind like the Federal Reserve, that never has to face the voters.
