We have a giant loop hole that needs to be fixed. US Corporate entities are afforded many of the liberties and freedoms our citizens enjoy. Corporations are rarely prosecuted in criminal matters and instead resort to civil settlements. US corporations lobby our politicians for tax breaks and special deals etc. This game has been played to new levels in recent times. The problem is ownership can simply be bought and transferred to a foreign interest with little regard. ie. A closely held subcontractor specializing in a military widget used by our prime defense contractors awarded a large multi-year contract under a Small Business set aside clause can become a Chinese Government owned venture under a contract sale. All of the attention has been on H1 Visas and illegal immigrants while we have a whole scheme setup to issue visa to investors: The E2 investor visa is a nonimmigrant visa that permits foreign investors and their employees to live and work in the United States. Entrepreneurs who invest in the United States by establishing a new business or purchasing an existing company may qualify for the E2 visa. Foreign corporations may also use the E2 visa to send employees to the United States through their US subsidiary company. If the investor is inside the US, he or she may apply to the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS, formerly the Immigration and Naturalization Service) for a change of status, extension of stay, or change of employment. The E2 category does not require a petition for employment. Can an illegal mexican "Invest" in a lawn care business and qualify for an E2 visa and bring his entire family over as employees? If these nonimmigrant workers live here and have a child what is its status? Seems like many conflicts in policies exist where $$$ can buy you all of the benefits of Citizenship without any allegiance.
