The sooner people understand this, the better. I don't get why it is such a hard concept to get. There are hardly any jobs for people here now and you want to take all the other countries people? Common sense, people. COMMON SENSE!
The La Raza types would call you a racist for saying that.

You've got the "world citizen" types of marxist leftists that think that anyone should be able to live wherever they want, unless you are from the first world, then you should have to respect the views of other people.

I am a world citizen. I wish the best for everyone in the world. I truly wish that everyone had water to drink and I wish everyone had food. I wish everyone had good shelter and I wish that everyone slept somewhere they felt safe. I truly wish no one was at war with anyone.

But it cannot be at the expense of first world countries. It cannot be at the expense of the USA anymore. And I sound selfish but the only countries I care about are USA and Canada (because they are our neighbors). Everything else, deal with your own issues.

And for the record, I am not against USA helping other countries if OUR COUNTRY IS FINE FIRST. That is vital and necessary. If we were blooming and there was no recession/depression, then by all means. Go help those who need it. But we are so effed up as it is, we simply cannot afford it.

If the motto was to be taken literally, why do we have the INS?

It's no longer know as the "INS", it's (ICE) Immigration & Costumes Enforcement. You want the phone number, I carry it on me all the time now. just in case

I stand corrected. The gov't changes name so often, it's hard to keep up.

No, just as long as the liberals are advocating that they come here legally within our alloted quotas.

wrong. ICE is the enforcement arm of the former INS now known as USCIS - US Customs & Immigration Service.

btw - Costumes enforcement?
