    Next we should let those Ph.D engineers in India who make $5,000 a year compete with American engineers accustomed to making $100,000 a year or more...

    Have you even heard of drug cartels? Islamic terrorists?
    Under 'king' obama the borders are virtually open.
    No, no, and NO.
    Decrease legal immigration, then resume at a slow pace.

    t's our country, we ought to come first. If these people are so hungry for success, why can't they stay where they are and make it there?

    Zero USA immigration
    Deport all current foreign criminals
    it is 100% ILLEGAL for any foreigner to work in USA
    All USA tech at collages is a national security concern, all foreigners are banned from USA education.
    you will remember that 10+ people building the CHina bomb were educated in USA, besides the current crop stealing our jobs.


    That or USA CITIZENSHIP is meaning less.

    oh, and enforce SECTION 274 of the INA to jail all the traitors that support "open borders" for supporting and encouraging
    illegals in USA.

    When e US CITIZENS can get a job in mexico, japan, CHina, and all the other places. THEN you can have your BS non-existant nation state.

    But see when I was in Mexico, they deported the PROSTITUTES that were foreigners and replaced them with Mexicans..............now that is job security

    Becasue it is ILLEGAL for any foreigner to work in mexico at ALL

    No. There should be a moratorium on immigration at least until every American who wants a job or education can get one. There should be no more work or student visas issued until we have full employment for our young people (~18-25) who are suffering the most from our current economic predicament.

    No, your point is distorted. None of those posters, that I'm aware of are against immigration and immigrants. One at least comes closest I suppose in calling a moratorium on immigration, but that's not a permanent opposition but a temporary solution to a domestic problem. The rest, you're not even close.

    Oh, and learn to quote. If nothing else, it's a quick cut and paste.

    That is what I'm saying, and in no way is it "silly." Long term data is always better than short term data. We have it, why not use it?

    The answer is simple, immigrants are willing to work harder, and work ****tier jobs, than fatass, entitled, lazy Americans are willing to do. Americans have an entitlement mentality. They believe everything should be given to them by birthright. Immigrants do not suffer from this sickness. Will they take free ****? Sure, of course they will, who wouldn't. But the difference is that they don't DEMAND it, much less EXPECT it, like Americans do.

    So some 19 year old hipster punk who has learned to leach off of his parents for his entire life can suck my dick if he thinks that he "deserves" a job and that I should hire him just because he's an American. I don't want to hear him bitch and complain about the work or the hours while writing his little paper on how FDR was the greatest person ever. I'd much rather just hire some Mexican guy who will work hard and not complain and bitch and demand this or that out of me. And yeah, I am willing to pay MORE for a Mexican than a ****bag college student or retarded high school dropout.
    Maybe universities should think twice about giving out all those useless liberal arts degrees.

    So you're fine with people losing their job? Because when the unemployment rate rises, that's what happens.

    Well given your opinion on graduates of universities, I can understand your line of thinking on this, as well.

    We need less university graduates, and more skilled technicians. If you come to me with a philosophy degree expecting a job I'm gonna laugh in your face. Yeah, I have a job for you, but you're gonna get paid a lot less than the Mexican guy I hired who has been doing this for 15 years and does an awesome job at it and doesn't bitch and complain the whole time.

    Yeah, let's just ignore those people that go on to get PhDs and to discover cures for diseases, develop new technologies, etc.
