As i suspected, some of you want to do away with legal immigration anyway. Using illegal immigration as a front or an excuse to put a stop on legal immigration doesn't make sense. There is absolutely no need to put a stop on all forms of immigration while the border is being secured.

I think you need to talk with AMC about this twisting of words so you two can get together with your lies and such.

We have said that we need a moratorium for a length of time so that our immigration policy can get fixed and our borders get secured and assimilate the ones that are here, the legal ones that is. Then after all of that is done we could continue with some more immigration, though we should absolutely STOP ALL immigration to our country from the poor and uneducated because they do nothing to help the country at all. As a Anglo American of Mexican descent, I can't even think about moving to Mexico without proving I can support myself. We should do the same thing and if not, then tough luck.

Who is saying the legal ones here right now don't assimilate? I keep hearing from the anti-immigrant crowd how wonderful and law abiding legal immigrants are, but yet they want to reward them by shutting the doors in their faces for how long?

The reason that we need a moratorium on LEGAL immigration is because of the illegal alien invasion and to a lesser degree uncontrolled legal immigration. We gained 100 million people in 40 years due to legal immigrants and illegal aliens. If it were not for immigration-both legal and illegal we would have lost population. That is way too much for any country to absorb-even if every single one assimilated 100%.

We need a time out on everything. All illegals gone. Then once the time out is over-reevaluate exactly what level of legal immigration is needed in our country-what will benefit us but not at the detriment of US citizens and their jobs.

Just because we may want contolled legal immigration does not mean that we have a "problem" with legal immigrants-they are doing it the right way. The problem-if you can call it that-is with the our governement not regulating immigration so that it benefits it citizens and does not cost them jobs.

What is the difference with the Anti-illegal group? We have the same rights to feel the way we do.

The difference is - you are flaunting the LAWS OF THIS COUNTRY when you support illegal immigration.

And that, Sassy, is a BIG DIFFERENCE.

And I'm talking about both legal and illegal immigrants, both of whom leech off our social network.
Did Iraq ever say they would like us to invade their country? The answer is NO and we are still there and things are NOT better and our troops will be there for a long time. Did anyone ever think that our country is full of warmongers. The big wigs of this country do Not want to do a thing about immigration.
Oh, and we also have more than our share of Americans leaching off the system and welfare. Just because they are legal does not make me like any better paying for them either.

We have traveled this road ad nauseam; and I don't have the time, nor the inclination to rehash. You know my position.
