I don't see what's wrong with giving "rich brown people" a fast track to citizenship, especially if "rich brown people" is code for entrepreneurs and business owners who will use their money to create jobs and grow the economy.

The main reason that people may want to restrict access to citizenship is fear that this will create additinal claims on social support and welfare. Rich people are unlikely to do that. In the best case they create a lot of additional wealth, and in the worste case they stay quiet and do nothing and are thus economically neutral. The only reason that I can see that people would resent them coming is racism. Racism and resentmenmt of poeple more succesful than themselves.
Is "the only reason you can see" the only reason, though?

Doesn't sound very stable ground on which to base anything more significant than a narrow minded opinion. But hey, that seems to be the new politics.
