I see that several people have expressed a desire to have less illegal Mexican immigrants, but who would you like to see more of?

Call me old fashioned, but since I have a lot of German ancestors, I think it would be cool to have a few more in our next crop of new Americans (others are still welcome).

Chime in, and say who you want and why!

I don't think we need more immigrants from any nation. In less than 50 years we have doubled our population from 150 million to over 300 million.

Having said that, if we are going to have immigrants come here, they should be educated and from anywhere other than Mexico, Central, and South America. We have had too many of them come here illegally and step ahead of the line. We need to be a little more fair.

European in general would be nice? Come on man don't say things like that. And trust me it happens more often than not. I have a lot of friends from bulgaria and romania who have just comed recently.
The reality is we should be accepting more people from the arab world(Northern Africa to Central Asia) and africa. Those regions are extremely worse than any nation in Latin America. Except for a few nations like Kuwait, Bahrain, UAE.

And EE wouldn't be bad because many are educated so in no particular order: EE, Arab world, africa

As soon as I can drive a damn day on the 405 without hitting traffic, then i'll think about who I'd like more of. Right now, however, I'd like our border to be unidirectional, outward.
