I can't even read the whole post just because of the title.
"Anti-immigrant"?

Morons.

Agreed. Legal aliens are usually good, ILLEGAL aliens are bad people and need to pay for their crimes.

Ya, though if you are living far away from "the zone" it doesn't affect them so it never happened. So long as they get a deal on who cuts their grass They got theirs.

We have so many illegal aliens we can't absorb any more legal immigrants.

If the problem was just so called illegal immigration, then GREATLY expanding how many people can enter this nation would take care of that problem quickly.

No, the people who have a problem with illegal immigration have a problem with immigration period and usually this problem stems from their view that too many people from the wrong kinds of nations are coming into this nation and ruining it.
I don't know what you consider the wrong kind of nation, but I'll admit I think there are too many from Mexico, since they outnumber all others combined. If they weren't here in such large numbers, maybe we could allow more friom other countries to have a chance.

The line in the previous post 'We have so many illegal aliens we can't absorb any more legal immigrants,'was supposed to be a reply, not part of Iamme73's post.

This forum constantly makes me sad. So many educated, supposedly intelligent people, yet completely unable to discuss some issues. No one is willing to take a step back, it's all talking points. Strawman arguments. Goalpost shifts. Basically any and all debate "tricks" are used to prove a point, even if the point is something else or is right.
Intellectual dishonesty at it's finest.
This particular thread is going nowhere constructive, you've been going around in circles for a while.
Closed.
Yac.
