If we need scientists and doctors we sure don't need to gain them from foreigners producing anchor babies. Michelle Malkin was not an anchor baby anyway. Most illegal aliens producing babies on our soil nor their anchors are candidates for skilled and professional workers. They nor their parents value an education. Are we incapable of producing our own scientists and doctors? I don't think so!

Obviously we are since we have a huge shortage of them and there seems to be no change in our educational patterns to suggest its going to get any better soon.

Do you know the difference of legal vs illegal? A legal immigrant CANNOT have an anchor baby. Unless of course they later skip out on their visa but they were legal at the time. There is a huge difference.


Dentists and Doctors are not what is slithering across our border illegally trying to hide from BP.

Do you have any scientific studies to back such a dumb statement?

The stats have been posted in here several times. Hispanics have the highest dropout rates from school than any other ethnic group. Search for it. I don't have the time nor the inclination to do it for you. You have been in this forum long enough to have read those stats already.

If we need more dentists and doctors and not enough Americans interested in those professions we can always import legal immigrants who have already received the training in their own countries. We certainly don't need illegal aliens coming over here to fill those jobs. Most of the illegals coming over here are uneducated and unskilled. We don't need that.

The Republican idea now, is to take ten years to amend the Constitution in an area that would have marginal, if any, effect on the problem. Now there's some wise leadership?
