I must concur with my conservative colleague.
I don't think the founders wanted the whole world to have US citizenship and this thread and everything you've posted in it is the very opposite of academic.
There isn't much point in those we want to come here coming here if we're also letting in all those who are dragging their countries down too.
No, but seriously.... I never said the whole world ought to have US citizenship. That's a straw man argument because you're attributing a false position to me. My argument is to loosen up our immigration policies and make it simpler to come in to this country, not to allow anyone and everyone access.
