If that is the case, then why can't we just exclude the impoverished?

My X-husband would fit that profile....highly educated....spoke four languages....has a masters in physics.

He count not make it here.....our culture was just to much for him.....things moved to fast....our laws were very confusing...a little money...a car and a big country about killed him.


And cost Dow Chemical a good amount of money.

Will these people need any financial support from our Government ?
We are already trillions of dollars in debt. Not to mention our schools are already over crowded.
Who will pay for their medical costs ?

If these people are educated and very professional, why don't they fix the problems in their own country and better their way of life there ?
Their politics is what is stopping them.

It is so different there.....I wish I had the talent to tell you.

My X-husband was here for one POTUS election.....he was shocked when the same people were working at the post office......delivered our propane....still owned the local store.

I remember saying our tax bill came in the mail......he got extremely upset....he thought we would have to move.

OUR Country has changed and we do need more labors. The doctors or professions are a very small percentage. In 10 years our cities will turn into something like the same conditions these Illegal Immigrants are fleeing from.

Most of them will never embrace American Exceptualism, never mind learn English.

Go to the poorest neighborhoods of Mexico and Central America and you will get your answer. Only add in welfare offices and food stamps which is the main draw.

So, they aren't taking our jobs then, just sitting at home collecting welfare?

Their politics.....if your party lost.....your job was likely gone.

Just the thought of taxes meant extortion to him......you pay more than just the tax bill.

You pay to the police.....and a gang or, two.

They do both---and you know it, too.

Many of them work under the table jobs and at the same time tap into welfare benefits for their anchor babies.

IMHO that'd set off things like Germany before WW 2 or even Syria in 2014 because US citizens WILL take things into their own hands.
