    No, but the man asked how many people we could sustain. I answered correctly. If he meant to ask something else, he could have chosen his words more carefully.

    Sounds nice doesn't it? Unless you actually think about it. Then its unrealistic.



    99% of those that are against illegal immigration does not want to seal the border. They have no problems with legal immigration. They also know that you don't have to seal a border in order to prevent illegal immigration. No need for walls, just common sense laws and laws that are enforced.



    Ahh, the race card. Typical pro-illegal response. Which is nonsense of course. The only anti-illegal alien folks out there that are xenophobic and racist are in the clear minority. The rest of us don't give a crap what race comes in legally or illegally and have absolutely no problem with people coming here LEGALLY no matter the race. We just want people coming here LEGALLY. Thats it.



    We have no problem with people migrating legally. We have a problem with those that migrate into our country illegally. Whether everything about the process is artificial or not doesn't mean crap. Tornado's are natural also, doesn't mean we want them.
    If you make immigration legal, then you don't have a problem with "illegals" anymore.

    You are the one that said "easily". Implying that we would have no problem. Are you correcting yourself now?

    No, we need to shut the borders harder and deport people here illegally.

    Again you need to be reminded, immigration IS legal already.

    There will ALWAYS be illegals unless we have an open border. There will always be those that try to circumvent the law. I am against open borders not because of the immigrants. But because of economical concerns.

    No, the total GDP of the USA is much higher than China or India, so we can roughly assume that the United States could sustain a billion people more comfortably than either China or India.

    That, and had we more people, the GDP would likely grow along with the population.

    People are a resource. More people = more wealth.

    I'm talking about relaxing immigration laws to make some who are now illegal, legal.

    Would you say the same if someone deported you?
