Like, millions more.

These people forget that everyone said we were too crowded when their ancestors needed a place to go and chose this country.

There was never popular sentiment in this country to take in new immigrants. Every group that was already here wanted to shut the door.

That would include the time when YOUR ancestors wanted to come here.

The country is becoming to diverse. Diversity is not necessarily a good thing. People need time to assimilate, on both sides. It takes a generation or two.

Stop ALL immigration for at least a decade to give time for assimilation, with a heavy emphasis on not letting a single illegal or "asylum" seeker in ever again.

At the very least have a strict merit based immigration policy, like other 99% of the other countries the left so loves to refer to. Letting mass numbers of undesirables in, while promising them free stuff, isn't going to end well.

So make space now. This is a huge country.
Okay...since this is your brilliant (sarcasm) idea, you go first. Time to make room in your own house. I'm sure that a family of illegals would be glad to live in one of your spare rooms

You seem to think we have unlimited buildable land and potable water. Hate to burst your bubble, but we don't. You live in AZ yet you seem to think that there is unlimited potable water in the desert

All of the United States is my house, including where you live.

If we donít have the resources in Arizona, they can go elsewhere in this country.

We had room when your ancestors arrived. Thereís still room.

Basic stats. This graph is utterly useless regarding "crowding" for many reasons. Mightleavenyc, I suspect you know why. One of the simpler issues, territories that later became states. 1790 census included 13 (?) states and the Southwest Territory (later Tennessee).

Nothing to do with color, although you liberals keep trying to paint it that way. It has to do with importing an entire underclass of poorly educated people who will become dependent on government - and vote for Ds.

And funny. You insult PP as having a 10th grade education, ignoring the fact that the caravans of illegal aliens coming up from Central America barely have a grade school education. So if you're putting down American high school dropouts as losers, why are you encouraging foreigners without ANY high school education to come here?

Liberals are such hypocrites.

There's not room for more people who will go on the government dole. I say let's import educated people in fields where we have a shortage - like technology. But more high school dropouts? We have more than enough as it is.

Why do you post tripe than can be so easily debunked which is by and large a characteristic of Russian trolls and bots. A real American should take pride in researching the facts before posting so that the information has integrity but what you posted here does not...on so many levels. Why set yourself up just to be brought down with actual statistics. Education? Do you really want to go there?
