yes, because imbalance is what contributes to immigration quantities, among other things.

Are you reading what I write?

both.
And if only one opening exists?

the ones that need it should be provided with unskilled labor that allows them compensation for fairly basic living standards. the best qualified can seek out jobs that require more training and foreknowledge, and therefore compensate better.
Huh? I'm not comparing an engineer to a landscaper. I'm asking if the basis for employment, from the employer's standpoint, should be qualification or economic need?

both. fund as many students as possible. the brightest can go to presitigious schools free, the slowest can go to vocational schools or less prestigious schools for free.
I see you're either missing the point in grand fashion, or (more likely) sidestepping my questions.

source this information, please. i dont see how an unborn baby can be implicated for a crime that they have no control over. it doesnt make sense.
Nowhere did I say anchor babies should be implicated in a crime. Useless. Simply amazing and useless.

burden of proof is on the claimant. otherwise i could make any outrageous claim and send you on a wild goose chase. simple debate procedure.

the fact that immigrants founded this country, it's been full of them from various countries since, and we have had our ups and downs regardless. if anything is to blame for the state of the nation, its the people running the nation.

i guess you need to clarify "other areas". if you are referring to other countries, then my answer stands.

Quote:

i'll worry about that when it's a real scenario.

depends on the job. many jobs are "unskilled", meaning that there is little to no qualification. and those are the jobs that are usually needed by the economically downtrodden. funny how that works.

no, i'm not. this isn't a black and white issue. there are options.

well you support overturning a law that grants them citizenship. how is that not punishment?
