Let's cap the foreign population at 3%

in Japan. You know, keep the country and the blood as "pure" as Koizumi's heart when he worships at Yasukuni shrine.

Actually, this is part of a Justice Ministry idea for managing foreign immigration in the future. It doesn't sound all bad, and there are some good ideas, like making foreign kids go to school. A Japanese language requirement for all. As I read it, there will be a basic language requirement before one can even come here to work. Wanna bet that they don't exempt eikaiwa kyoshi? (English conversation instructors). The problem is, who will judge this ability. I suspect it will be the usual Japanese written test with all kinds of basically irrelevant questions or arcane knowledge required.
