The reason why we will never curtail legal immigration is because we have been led to believe since elementary school lies like "America was built by immigrants", "we are a nation of immigrants", and silly justifications based on the Statue of Liberty's plaque about "give us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses". Until this changes we will only see the numbers of legal immigrants increase and increase. The ability of the nation to absorb this much growth does not matter one iota.

This is not an illegal immigration issue, furthermore I doubt a thread like this is suitable for the legal immigration forum.
Closed.
