As for me, I voted the same. Basically, I am extremely happy that I and my family were allowed to immigrate to the U.S. from Israel and thus I want to give other people an opportunity to likewise move to the U.S. and experience the American dream. However, I am also concerned about things such as housing prices and thus I don't want too many immigrants moving here. Basically, I am afraid that large parts of the nation are going to have California-level housing prices if we'll accept too many immigrants into this country.

The population has more than doubled in my lifetime, it is time to stop all immigration.

More legal. No illegal. The first will make the second a lot less of a problem and one we manage with less money.

Immigration is fine, as long as immigrants can bring something to the table.

But not too many from any one culture that is vastly different than the general U.S.A culture. Assimilation is critical.


How long have you been in the U.S.?

I lived north of Tel Aviv from 2011-2014 due to work. Housing prices were crazy high (as were taxes) and there was city wide price protests for the 1st 6 months or so I lived there.

I would prefer very limited, 1924-1964 levels, using the RAISE ACT to decide who we let in.

With two additional stipulations-repudiating your prior citizenship should be required, and no travel VISAs should be granted to that nation for a full decade.


Come here unequivocally or stay in your present nation..

There is a case that we have to have more, because native birth rates have declined below replacement level (2.1 babies per female). Otherwise we run into all kinds of problems, which are currently plaguing nations like Japan, and countries in Eastern Europe.

We need to kick out those who don’t assimilate or pull their own weight first.
