    If by "freedom" you mean the freedom to cross the US border at whim, then the answer is "what the **** do you think national borders are for?" and "of course foreigners aren't free to come and go as they please".

    Duh.

    Because they're not US citizens.

    They can either have democracy in their own country, or their can take their disease to France.

    Sounds reasonable.

    I will when I meet him. However, since he is a US citizen, he's not really germaine to the thread topic.

    We should never import lawyers. Not ever. They may not be infected with a disease, it doesn't matter. They are a disease.
    I forget how America despises academics sometimes - maybe if you imported more of them you'd have a decent healthcare system or understand why banning HIV positive legal immigrants is like trying to fireproof a burning house.

    All the more reason for them to stay out of this horrible country....

    Is not throwing water on the fire considered 'fireproofing?'......

    In this case, throwing water on the fire would be equivalent to curing HIV, vaccinating against it, or educating people on preventative measures - if the country did not already have HIV present in severe levels then you might have a point. As it stands, you don't.

    Meh, the part of the population most affected does not make it severe....

    When there are more people knocking on the door than we have room for, we set criteria for weeding them out.

    Infection with a terminable infectious disease is an excellent rake to weed undesirables out.

    The cemetaries are populated with thousands of engineers and doctors and other intelligent people who died from AIDS infections received after it became common knowledge that unprotected gay sex was a possible death sentence.

    So you can quit pretending that educated immigrants with HIV are just too darn cute...er intelligent to be spreading their junk around like some illegal alien snuck across the border.

    Prithee, what "part" of the population arey you referring to?

    Immigration into the US at the moment has little to no bearing on the spread of HIV considering the vast majority of the infected get it from other domestics. Saying otherwise is merely a tactic to engender jingoism in the population.

    Curious, do you have any concrete evidence that HIV rates are affected by legal immigration *at all*?

    We don't despise academics, unless they're retarded enough to be socialists also, and we don't despise HIV infected academics, except to note that their vaunted education gives them no excuse for having allowed themselves to get infected, and thus if they did get infected, they're clearly not the brightest people and they should immigrate to some second-rate country, not the US.

    It's 100% true that HIV infected immigrants who are not allowed into the United States cannot infect a person in the United States.

    Unless their dick is a hundred feet long, I suppose, and they're standing at the US-Canadian border.
