I think this has something to do with how they feel about globalism, and that one shouldn't think of one's own country first. But, we older folks disagree.
Because they have been reading Hillary too much "it takes a village"

You do realize, being married to a Legal Permanent Resident, that the card has a ten-year validity, but the LPR status doesn't expire?...

If the immigrant reaches age 14, the card has to be renewed to get biometric data added, even if it had a later expiration date...

An LPR is also not required to become a citizen, they can remain in that status if they want...

Why didn't you address the meat of that post which was the unfairness of illegals jumping our borders while those who come here legally meet all the necessary standards to come here rather than correcting some technicality of the visa program in his post?

In another part of the state a few years back a football team got in trouble. The Varsity team sodomized members of the JV. The football fans. They didnt do anything really bad just got carried away . etc.
In many cases these pro-illegals either have family or friends here illegally. To them the laws are unfair because it impacts them. So they seek to justify the actions of the illegal. Citing how hard it is etc. Disregarding the fact that many illegals never even bother trying to apply for a visa. Its too expensive. Once again disregarding the fact that many coyotes charge more than the VISA appl. would have been.
Its the same as speeding. Disregarding the other laws illegals violate. Or justifying by saying well if we gave them a VISA they would commit other crimes.
Well if we raised the speed limit right????
Good post, tinman. I would only add though that I came to know many Hispanics when I was working and even though they had no relatives here illegally they were still advocates for these illegals based on ethnocentricism and because their own ancestors were mostly from Mexico. I just don't get it. I am white and my ancestors were from Ireland and Poland, yet I wouldn't dream of advocating for illegal aliens just because they were white like me or from my ancestor's countries.

Shrug so??? When I go to your house. I dont make the rules you do. I may not like your rules. I can either adapt and accept them or leave. Same principle.
I want to retire to Thailand. I dont agree with all the laws or all the culture.
Do I demand they change for me or do I adapt to them?

I couldn't agree more. Glad to see that you don't suffer from the victim mentality syndrone.

JUST LIKE THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, YOUR TYPE IS DYING. The world needs to adapt. The younger generation needs to lead the path with key inputs. We need to become one world under one govt in order to explore space. Without taking this fundamental basic step, we have no business in space exploration. Humans despite our cultural differences, are one. Don;t kid yourself.



The only real option is to populate space. If the world got to work, we should all be focused on colonzing parts of space. It would end tension between the US and the rest of the world, give ppl focus and more opportunties, and create world peace for the yrs to come. Let's face it, at this rate the world will be destroyed due to over population or nuclear war. Instead of accepting this and living as if war is inevitable and abortion is ok in order to "cull the population," all of us should accept human life with pragmatic approach and shift in thinking. Im tired of bickering and fighting and all other nonsense. Ban public displays of religious artifacts and keep it in out hearts and minds.



DONT KID YOURSELF, IT IS ALREADY PROVEN WE CAN LIVE IN SPACE AND WE CAN BUILD A SETTLEMENT ON MARS. HAVE THE INITIAL ECONOMY REVOLVES AROUND MINING AND RESEARCH IN ORDER TO KEEP EARTH CLEAN AND SAFE. MAKE MARS THE LAUNCH PAD TO NEW WORLDS.
