1.  (As I said some while ago) the French system is like that (like you say the 
US is).
2.  Actually, Lawrence, the term is Mexican-American (aka Chicano)

3.  The real "success" of the US system is probably its cherry-picking 
immigrants by points-scoring.  We are moving to such a system 
(Blair strikes again) causing people to wonder who, now, will do the dirty 
and poorly paid jobs British cirizens won't do.  Not that I think immigrants 
should have to do them.
