    I know California very well and I agree with you comply. Marietta, CA where they are dumping illegals off from buses and planes is tearing the city apart. Protesters on both sides yelling and screaming at each other. It's a total mess and our border is in crises mode and unfortunately Obama is going to do nothing about it. Except to maybe ask congress for money to house, feed, provide medical care, educate them etc etc.

    AFAIK there is no nation on Earth with such a policy. Extreme foolishness.

    Open border is what we have now. Anything and everything, including people just walk across the border. Our laws are not being enforced at the border, thus it is a parade of people good or the bad that want to kill us and bringing anything they want. That is exactly what is going on right now. Our border is in crises mode and Obama is doing nothing about it.

    You may think you have an "inalienable right" but try walking into N Korea or Iran and see how far you get. Thus you have no inalienable right. So much for that.

    Nice try but where is the money coming from to set up a jobs program to employ millions of Americans out of work today and just as many millions of illegals or immigrants walking across.

    The notion that only immigrants are benefiting from this is not true. Also, I don't support any tax hikes on the working class. The ones I've proposed are increased tax rates mostly on the top 10%.
    Everything a liberal wants, you want it paid for by the top 10%. I can't tell you how many times heard that from lefties that want to take if from the top 10% to pay for their pet program. Problem is soon there is no more rich, it's all gone to pay for you're pet projects.

    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.
    Now your talking about more welfare to lift on out of poverty, where is all that money coming from. Yeah I know the top 10%.

    The U.S. should be one of the world's most difficult countries to immigrate to. It has plenty of people to sustain a successful economy.
    I fight against the ignorant, irresponsible, and/or closed-minded.
    This group is the worst enemy of America and its freedoms. It includes, but is not limited to, all Trump supporters.

    I do not think he realizes that if the country keeps getting flooded with more and more people that the top 10% shrinks or the definition of what is the top 10% is gets expanded to include what we now consider middle class.
    "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"

    I voted NO since it is simply not practical. The USA would be flooded with many times the numbers we now consider problematic. When it comes down to basics - if a country cannot defend and control its borders - really people, what the hell can they do?
