Well? Why would we bring in 79 year old and older immigrants in the first place? Obviously she wouldn't be here to work and contribute but to receive plenty of government handouts and free health care.

Exactly why would anyone want to bring in senile 79 year olds that can't speak or learn English? Now immigration should be about making the USA into a nursing home for indigent elderly?

In this example, if she had been senile at 79, how is she still getting around over 20 years later?..

The point is that a 79 year old immigrant most likely wouldn't be a benefit to our country but a burden unless their family members were held accountable for all of their upkeep and that's not likely. For example, what insurance company is going to provide a family paid health insurance policy for someone of that age that would be affordable? If they became ill they would be dependant on our government to care for them through our taxes. They wouldn't be working so they wouldn't be contributing to our tax coffers.
