I am with Silas777, but being a bit sheltered in my world experiences I cannot say who to choose. I suppose whichever group has the most young, single, attractive women who are irresistibly attracted to older, bald, fat men. Ahhh well. Perhaps a fantasy life will just have to suffice.

In a <slightly> more serious vein, I do not have any preference as to origin of immigrants as much as I would prefer immigrants with the attitudes more consistent with my life goals. It is hard to deal with people who are motivated in directions opposite to my goals, so it would be more convienent if everyone would agree to stop striving for things that make my goals harder to achieve.

They can still disagree with me, as long as they keep it to themselves.

I will laugh if an over-eager moderator moves your post to the "classified" section!

None as far as I'm concerned, we need to focus on the poeople we have now, we are over crowded enough.

i've been travelling all over the country since 1998 when i started to work for a franchise. I meant I've been so many places including Alaska and Hawaii. what i feel is that no matter what you do, you cannot change the trend that Latino will be the majority of the country in the near future (if it is not now but i still doubt the Census data because they didn't count on all people living in this land). buiilding the fence and stop all incoming immediately? sure. go ahead. but it cannot alter the trend. with the exsitng hispanic population plus 20m of illegals, the number can be doubled easily in the next 15 years. go figure. the appearance of the country is changing rapidly.

will US be the most advanced country? maybe not.

Don't mean to crush your hopes, but this is a myth :-)

ya, I think we should let the Latinos run things look how well its working out in Mexico and central America.

I would like to have some of the newly empowered eastern Europeans as immigrants. Do you really think they would protest in the streets of the US with Polish flags? The eastern Europeans would be so grateful they would be learning English at lunchtime.

I think it would be unwise to take muslins in the country at this time. Call me silly.
