No wonder there is a mad rush to get here.
OK. Let's adopt, for the sake of argument, your criterion for granting tennis scholarships: the "intention of contributing anything back to the to the school, state, country, etc., when they are done."

Woo-hoo for the rich. They pay more taxes and have more disposable income for donations to their alma maters. This criterion will help the 1%.

Any of you with kids recently graduated from college, in college, or about to go to college.............try asking them what their intentions are for donating to their school. See how much of a clue they have about their intentions

It is a little ironic to me that foreigners who come to the US for college and then leave are criticized for not staying to pay taxes..............and the ones who do stay are criticized for taking away Amurrrrican jobs!
