Especially among young males in the 18-25 demographic.
    First of all, immigration creates demand for jobs. Our economy is service/ consumer based. That being said, more people = more jobs.

    Second of all, in many industries there is a shortage of workers. There are plenty of employers that can't find enough people to fill vacant positions.

    Third of all, our highest immigration influxes have often coincided with global crisis.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    My argument is all reality, no ideology.

    Immigration built this country. It is a no brainer to allow more immigration.
    The downside of being a conservative is that all of your heroes are dead.

    No it's not. We can't open the doors to everyone, especially people who want to come here and reap the benefits and not contribute. We have every right to pick and choose who we want to become citizens, those people who will work to the benefit of our nation. When the Statue of Liberty was put up, we didn't have the social safety net that we do today. If you want to go back to that time, we wouldn't have as many useless people trying to flood across the border.

    That's reality.

    Legal, intelligent immigration built this country. So long as that's what we're doing, it's fine.

    You are going to have to be more specific.

    Do you mean the policy which is a few people from each country per year, or are you talking about the open borders?

    We certainly can, and have done exactly that in the past.

    Sure, we also have the right to open our doors and remain the beacon of freedom/ hope for the world.
