Immigration Racket

One provision of the proposed immigration reform package looks like an invitation to a racket - the proposal for automatic green cards for anyone earning a MS or PhD in a STEM field. How do you keep this from producing a raft of diploma mills in the US - and we already have plenty. Also, why should degree holders from top foreign schools be excluded?

Maybe some exam standards would be better - it would also put pressure on US schools to pay attention to what their grads are learning.
