The corrupt politicians now encourage their underserved population to come here and they even benefit with remittances, but it also creates a brain drain and the most motivated citizens to leave for greener pastures instead of staying and demanding better from their governments. There is no excuse for countries so rich in natural resources to be so horribly governed.
Would you be kind enough to give me a link to a story about where an American was attacked by an El Salvadoran with a machete?

Re the bolded...It's not that simple. You should do more reading as to why birthright citizenship in the U.S. has been upheld in our court system (interpretation of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, etc.).
Re the Bolded - sounds like the intro to a speech LOL.

Sure, lots of countries do it. That doesn't make it right.

And yes, I agree, it's a complicated problem. I never said it was simple.

I mean these kids that got in without paying will be a benefit to the park. They will end up paying for food in the park, maybe purchase Disney products in the park. I am thinking that Disney should let these kids stay in the park that sneak in.

Oh Wait, you can not sneak kids into Disneyland, because they have a fence around the place. They have security to keep people out. They have rules against trespassers.
Okay, let's catch those kids and ship them to Mexico. That'll teach em to never have parents who sneak them into Disneyland again.

It's the deport-them-all folks who are extremist. And cold hearted. And UnAmerican.

I miss seeing presidential debates where both candidates are smart people with real agendas and solutions.

This presidential election was just plain awful.

Both candidates were rather appalling, and both sucked

They can, they just have to get behind the immigrants who're already in line waiting to become legal citizens.

More proof to whoever said Trump is the extreme right... like I said he has a set core of beliefs that goes beyond staying on the left or right. He has more views that stand with the right, but he also has views on the left too.

After we put the millions of law abiding people already here on the path to legal status, then yes.

I'm not in favor of open borders at all, but I am totally against pigheaded, nonsensical calls to deport millions of people and disrupting millions of families.

  • While a merit-based system like Canada admits far more high-skilled immigrants per capita, it also admits far more family-based immigrants per capita, and issues a higher percentage of visas to agricultural workers, caregivers, and other labor-intensive fields. Apparently, they recognize the value of both high-skilled and low-skilled immigrants in the economy.
  • If The Donald wants a merit-based system, why would he take actions to reduce the inflow of high-skilled immigrants by curtailing many H-1B programs?
  • He wants to end family-based immigration and diversity visa lottery, which primarily benefits immigrants from Latin American and African countries.
  • Despite the fact that immigrants (and African immigrants, in particular) of the diversity visa lottery have higher educational levels than the US as a whole, The Donald expressed a clear preference for immigrants from places like Norway over "****hole African countries."
  • So, you're wrong. The Donald does not have a plan for a merit-based system. He wants to reduce overall immigration, to the effect of slowing the changing racial composition of the country.

There is value in being more than just a parrot of right-wing politics. I implore you to educate yourself on these issues because far too often you have nothing substantial to contribute

You either appeal to his ignorance or his racism, or both.
