Call this forum what you will, but obviously its not the LEGAL immigrants of any race, color, or creed that threaten the US. Immigration is not a crime if done legaly,,,Illegal entry onto US soil is unforgivable by all means of the law!

It's not like native-born citizens know about this system. The only thing many know about the system is the myths and misconceptions retold by right-wing hate radio hosts. The complex system was designed to be applied under the radar and completely unaccountable to the people subjected to it. If the paperwork for having a baby was as complicated and authoritarian as the immigration bureaucracy, there would be mass madness amongst the population.

There might be opposition to freedom from such groups such as Immigration lawyers who would be out of work but in reality these people need to do something productive instead.

It should be a lot harder to become an American imo based solely on the fact that we are already taxing our natural resources to the point of failure.

Some people think Citizenship should be issued in boxes of Cracker Jacks.

A Visa or green card over stay is just as bad as someone who zipped across on foot.

i agree with that last post. i was surprised to see that the united states has a green card lottery. that is a lousy way to pick 50,000 citizens for a country in my opinion.
