    I was talking to him via Skype about two hours before i made the posting and i'll know this evening what happened. Surely you know about the lineups in emergency rooms in Canada because I really don't want to bother with a link.

    Shocking.
    The difference is that they actually drill for oil and don't leave it in the ground because of elk or a particular bird species.

    I should add that Canadians spend far less per capita on the military as well. Like Europeans we have been relying on Americans to do all the heavy lifting. That should change.

    And the Chinese, and most Indians, have made very good immigrants. I expect more will be coming from Latin America in the future but will have to follow certain guidelines. There are programs already in place for Mexicans and crews from Brazil have helped build the infrastructure on a few large projects.

    It's true and is pure fact. Without immigrants we would be in trouble and same goes for the U.S. minus illegals.

    Mostly Asia, Europe, and the U.S. unlike the U.S. we have no Hispanics I have never seen a Hispanic before in my life.

    Table 4: Permanent Residents Admitted in 2011, by Top 10 Source Countries Rank Country Number Percentage
    1 Philippines 34,991 14.1%
    2 People’s Republic of China 28,696 11.5%
    3 India 24,965 10.0%
    4 United States of America 8,829 3.5%
    5 Iran 6,840 2.7%
    6 United Kingdom and Colonies 6,550 2.6%
    7 Haiti 6,208 2.5%
    8 Pakistan 6,073 2.4%
    9 France 5,867 2.4%
    10 United Arab Emirates 5,223 2.1%
    Total Top 10 134,242 54.0%
    All Other Source Countries 114,506 46.0%
    TOTAL 248,748 100%

    That is the top 10 but as you cans see only 46% of immigrants come from other countries.

    We also get a lot from the U.S.. We also get to have a lot more say in immigrants as illegal immigration is rather hard to do.

    So your saying we aren't in trouble today ?

    If true and it's not broken why fix it.

    The problem America has been facing for the past forty years is that our immigration laws haven't been enforced and our borders haven't been secured.

    Only one administration in the past four decades actually tried to secure our borders and enforce our immigration laws that are already on the books and when that President put someone in charge (Harold Ezzel) to enforce our laws the usual leftist yelled "racist."

    America's immigration policies should be what's best for America and it's citizens not what's best for the immigrant or a particular political party's agenda.

    If you want to keep illegals out just militarize the border and your problem is solved it worked for Austria till it joined the Schengen. The shortage of skilled workers like doctors is an issue now but will grow into a major crisis later if we don't do anything. There is also the fact as more people retire we need people to replace them.
