If green cards were based on international law enforcement, mental health, and international terrorism investigation database lookups instead of quotas and interviews, there'd be no need for the rest of this crap. And I bet you could reduce that decade and a half wait time down to Domino's rules- 30 minutes or less- for first and 2nd world countries, thereby creating incentives for 3rd world governments to modernize.

And besides, if you're going to do this to your citizens anyway, it's easier just to put the whole country on a 10.x.x.x subnet and allow access to the greater internet only through approved proxies.
