Still, I give kudos to this farmer for using the guest worker program.

In a residential neighborhood. I am sure if he built them on the ranch, there would've been no issues.

In Canada, the requisite for immigrants is having enough net worth or needed job skills. Melania being here is not a drain on US government finances. The caravan that arrived from South America had in attendance, people with no money and many children to take care of. And none of them had college degrees or valuable job skills.

Have you looked at the US government debt calculator recently? America has a wonderful quality of life, but at the cost of a huge mountain of personal and government debt. We can't afford to take in anymore needy foreigners. We really aren't the land of plenty. It's all an illusion.

What "caravan from South America"? There is no such thing.

And you are fine with illegals as long as they have sufficient net worth? Really? Did Melania have significant assets when she was illegal and doing soft porn?

No,we can't afford to NOT take any more foreigners. We need more immigrants if we want to save this country. Immigrants made this country rich.

Apple, Facebook, Google, etc. were all founded by first or second generation immigrants. America became the greatest country specifically because of immigration.

There certainly was such a thing:

And how many people will be too many for you? 1 billion? 2 billion? India has more than 1 billion people and Bangalore doesn't have enough potable water. Is that what you want for this country?

Not all immigrants make this country rich---not by a long shot. The millions of illegal aliens we have are parasites who take far, far more than they give.

There are more crossing the border illegally to flop out babies (and head straight to the welfare office), than to come here and work.

No!! We can no longer allow them in. The quality of immigrants is lower now. Of your examples, those founders were the result of immigrants from Europe who arrived after WWI and WWII. The immigrants we are getting now, especially the ones from south of border, are not learning English and have little regard for academics. And they are having large families which we can NOT afford to educate. Look at the teachers striking for better pay. Our public school budgets are out of control. And since our healthcare costs are so high, we also can't afford to pay for more poor people needing healthcare.

We can't afford those mothers at the borders with no money and several children in tow. None of those women have college degrees and once here, they will make more babies. On the other hand, what would be more appealing is an adult immigrant with a university degree in AI or other science degree. But... we really have enough American adults going through our universities and graduating with science degrees.

And since we already have Apple, Facebook, and Google, why do we need more immigrants to have children to create more companies like that? The startup culture is very strong and thriving in the US already.

Do you seriously not understand the difference between an immigrant and an illegal alien?
The US has allows at least 675,000 permanent legal immigrants/year. In addition we take in refugees and have many legal work visa programs.
