So there are more illegals that STEAL jobs from Americans than illegals that sponge off the rest of us? Thanks !
I assume youhave zero problem with these criminals taking work away from people who were born here....
If we don't adopt America first.. we won't exist.
It's simply not feasible that we support everyone.
We have no responsibility for other nations and people... or is this another Obama socialist first
It's not stealing if it's given away, brainiac. They are HIRED to do jobs that other americans either can't or won't do. That's a hard fact you'd better learn, because your whole faulty argument rests upon it.
And it's not "support", either. It's hotel rooms being cleaned, fruit being picked, children being nannied, etc. Check the news, dumbazz...fruit is quite literally rotting in the fields in states where migrant laborers have been forced or scared out. They can't even get prison labor to do the work...because they don't know how to pick fruit!!
Why do you think the GOPers are now throwing themselves at the mercy of Latino americans everywhere?? Because they know that these workers and their kids are here to stay and represent the Future Of America.
Your idea of "responsibility" seems to topple when either muslim countries or russia or china or israel is involved, doesn't it...?
What will you do when the country has a majority of "minorities", and white people become the "new" minority...??!
The GOP realizes that the US's immigration policy and enforcement is broken and that they need to be a player for reform. Reform will address who is here due to a broken system and then how we try to fix the system again.
It will be Reagan reduxe again. The GOP STEM immigration bill is a great start as we need to encourage people with skills to stay. We also need to have a realistic plan for others who want to come here for the dream of a better life; but we need it to be realistic in terms of quota's in terms how we can realistically absorb immigration. One test should be can the individual support themselves.
We can't continue to take on all the burdens of the world and survive as a free market country.
The standard postion for all Americans should be, and needs to be, based on two things, as we can afford to do so:
1) People who can add to our economy, (i.e. fill needed jobs, bring needed companies in)
2) people who are in threat of life (politically, religious)
Everyone else, don't let them in, kick them out if they are already here.
