    No, I would not be in favor of it. Immigration laws need a bit of an overhaul here, and more needs to be done to prevent illegal immigration, but I'm not in favor of stopping immigration altogether.

    I would be in favor of it because we already have enough mouths to feed. That being said, if we are bringing educated immigrants with good job skills, that we need in the workforce, I could live with that.

    Oh, and stop illegal immigration.

    no, then who would drive taxi's, run fish and ship shops, get all the good grades at schools?
    we need to perpetuate these stereotypes

    but in all seriousness, i would not suspend immigration, being Australian, it harkens back to the days of the white Australia policy (yes, Australia was as rascist as the rest of the world once, some people find that surprising), and immigration needs to be encouraged, even if it is for the sake of gastronomic diversity.

    Only in very specific emergency type situations and even then likely only temporary.

    If there was some kind of honest to goodness nationwide famine I’d be in favor of it

    If there was a particular country we had a high, legitimate threat reported from I wouldn’t have an issue with at temporary suspension of any of the quicker (relatively speaking) forms of immigration

    I wouldn’t have an issue with making it so we allow less immigrants in per year.

    But just a flat out indefinite suspension of it? Nope, would need a GOOD reason for it.

    There is nothing wrong with LEGAL immigration. So suspending that would be idiotic in the current climate imo.

    However ILLEGAL aliens need to gtfo.

    Or, we could focus our efforts on training Americans for those jobs.

    I have no problem with that except that I was referring to highly skilled jobs with substantial educational requirements. If we can find Americans who are willing and able, I'm fine with it.

    I say no. But I do support A temporary suspension of immigration for countries we have the most illegal immigration problems with until the illegal immigration problem we have with that country is fixed or at least brought down to reasonable levels.
    "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"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
