    Immigration should be merit based.
    Can you imagine what would happen to the USA if we let people come here for economic reasons? Where would we be today if we had allowed that type of thing in the past encouraging poor people to immigrate here?

    Poor isn't the point. It's if you can work, and support yourself.

    Not continually being a drain on government services.
    Why do they run?
    Because they have no choice son, such is the way of cowards.
    But even a cornered rat, with no choice, will fight.
    Yes my son, and that should tell you more than you need to know about the coward.

    No wonder Trump was so anxious to have Cuccinelli in his administration. He fits in perfectly with the Stephen Miller society there.
    It's disgraceful. I'm going to maybe and I'm looking at it very seriously. We're doing some other things that you probably noticed like some of the very important things that we're doing now. But we're looking at it very seriously because you can't do that. - President Donald J. Trump

    Is there even a reasonable conversation to be had here, or is it going to be the usual posters crying "orange man bad" and "He's basically Hitler" all over again?
    Did the man say those things or not?

    90 percent of us wouldn't be here if we restricted immigration to the cream of the crop.

    Tell that to the tens of millions of economically desperate people who helped build this nation.

    Exactly. The Industrial Revolution would have been severely retarded if not for immigrant labor. We might not be the economic leader of the free world if not for our welcoming immigration policy as we would have severely lacked the necessary labor.

    If you are an immigrant you should not qualify for welfare. If you come here you have to earn your keep. And if you come here there has to be a job waiting for you.

    It is not a valid reason to let someone come here just because they want to.
