    Where is this money going to come from for public works for all these poor people who are going to flood into this once you open the border.When you tell people that our borders are open they are going to come from everywher

    The ones I've proposed are increased tax rates mostly on the top 10%. But you are correct if you're referring to how the upper class is essentially in control of our elections. A welfare system should be designed so that it can lift one out of poverty in addition to a job. The poor aren't going to sit on their benefits and not find a job unless they can't find one
    .

    So your solution to prop up all these low to moderately skilled poor people from all over the word is to prop them up on the backs of the rich in this country? What happens when due to the amount of poor people who flooded into this country that you are now the top 10% even though your pay hasn't changed?


    You're exaggerating what I stated. I want a gradualist approach to immigration, meaning we don't immediately open the gates to millions of people. What I would like to do is to gradually accept the amount of people we accept per year, so that our nation can adjust to the increasing number of immigrants as opposed to having to deal with multitudes of them all at once, so that we are eventually at an open border policy when we can handle it
    You do know that half to three quarters of a million people each year get naturalized citizenship? I am pretty sure that we allow more people than that legally in each year. So are you going to one year suggest that one million people should be allowed in and then the next two million and so on?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Every country should. It's one of those 'inalienable rights' us humans are endowed with by our creator, if you catch my drift, to travel and live wherever we wish on this planet. No arbitrarily established and phoney ass government gets to interfere with that.

    A country with no border is not really a country. It's just a region of land with no discernable boundaries.

    No, of course not. But we should have a very liberal immigration policy.

    Other, when you come across sign up for Obamacare and Medicaid, we love you and want to take care of you. Come one and come all. We have yobs and medical and if no yobs we pay you to stay.
    I am fairly liberal minded on every issue except immigration. I live in California and I can see what is happening to this state. It is turning into a little Mexico. The town I live in is 77% Hispanic and I know most of them are not here legally. I fear for the future of California.

    Does open borders mean no security as well? No screening? No ability to close them against the violence of drug cartels or epidemics? Identify potential terrorists?
