Yes this is true, but the overwhelming majority of the newcomers are from Latin American countries. Seems racists that the policy is choosing them over other ethnic groups.

I never said otherwise. That doesn't mean I want them here. They should stay in their own countries and work to make them better places. The "skilled" workers that come here take jobs from Americans and are part of a kind of brain drain from their own native lands. They hurt us, and they hurt their own people back home!

And the problem with that is not only is it not fair but it results in colonization rather than assimilation when you have too many "immigrants" from one ethnic or national group.

Word is that depends on which kind of "Hispanic". La raza ain't a big fan of white people from Argentina, maybe because the Argentines have the rep of looking DOWN on Mexicans because most of them ain't "white".
