I guarantee you don't even care about immigrants from Europe, right?.
LOL, show me a quote of me saying i want open borders. I welcome all immigrants all over the world, i don't discriminate.

- A coalition of Blacks and Latinos is necessary to effecting changes in immigration laws, a nationwide advocacy group has determined.
The Fair Immigration Reform Movement (FIRM), which operates under the umbrella of the Center for Community Change, held a summit on the campus of Gallaudet University from Jan. 30-Feb. 1 to discuss strategies on how to bring together the two largest minority groups to create fair, comprehensive immigration reform policy. There were workshops, speakers and visits to members of the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate.

Latinos or hispanics are not the only ones supporting sensible immigration reform.

In a way; you are onto something there................prior to 1965, legal immigration was preferred from certain nations--------those whose cultures were similar to ours. Now; said First World societies are restricted in how many of their people are allowed in.

Frankly; I would like to see a return to the quota system of that era.

Now: a nation that was Third World 50 years ago and is now a First World society--------I would welcome more immigrants from there.

You'll pardon me if I don't believe a word you say. You are still a traitor and you know damn well this country is not able to support open borders. Even if we could, the citizens of the United States, which include LEGAL immigrants, don't want open borders. Let them do it legally!! You encourage the breaking of our sovereign laws. You are a traitor.

Some years ago, economist Milton Friedman came up with one of those 'gems' of wisdom, so simple you'd THINK they went without the need to even 'state the obvious'....what he said was "You just can't HAVE a welfare state, and free immigration"...or words to that effect.

It's still true today. If you're going to have a 'welfare state' (i.e., pass out the 'goodies' right and left, and 'take care' of people), then, obviously, you can't have 'free immigration' (i.e., 'open borders').

You can have ONE...or you can have the OTHER. But you can't have both.
