I do. It’s great. Save even more on home repairs and remodeling.

Every American should be allowed to own an alien for seven years and then grant the alien a green card

It must be controlled and regulated. How crowded do u want America to be? The majority of immigrants and refugees America takes in...are people of color. From Hispanics to Somalia's to Africans and etc. Been to Maine or Minnesota lately? Tons of African refugees. We cannot sustain an endless flow of people to our country. We have to do it smartly and piecemeal. Again...the Kurds get my vote over all immigrants.. So keep crying me a river lib....your crocodile tears are filling up the Mississippi river.
Seems you are the one crying the river. This seems that some just are afraid we are becoming too diverse. They want to stop American women from any birth control and stop the world from coming in. All I can tell you is this planet is not that big, and change will come, no matter what. This generation trying to hold on to the past. The new kids on the block will change it.
BTW. Expats are leaving the USA in droves to other countries. So itís only some that donít want change. But think this train has left the station.

Fewer people waiting at the border will help the terrible overcrowding.

I have served on and contribute financially to my church's Missions Committee, and give regularly to the Salvation Army. I donate to Heifer International, whose good works assist in helping poor folks in other countries do better, and thus stay in their countries of origin. I give to the Red Cross. I support and advocate for Reece's Rainbow and Bible Orphan Ministry.

That's for starters. What do YOU do?

I am in my 73rd year and live quite independently, actively, and successfully, so I think I've grown up. I hope I will always continue to grow in wisdom, knowledge, compassion, and judgment, of course. I also worked professionally with kids and families for almost 30 years, so issues concerning children also concern me.

No one is claiming we have infinite resources or that it is our job to take care of everyone on earth. That's your accusation, and it's untrue.

But those of us who try to follow Christ's teachings know who our neighbors, brothers and sisters are.
Rowing Fiend, my above post was in reaponse to your inquiry about how much of my own money I have given to try to help immigrants, refugees, and others. I also responded to your telling me I needed to "grow up".

You still have not answered my inquiry about what YOU yourself do in this regard.

So - what do YOU do?

Have you looked at your state laws? In many states if you have someone doing work on your property and that person isn't licensed and insured, should they get injured while working on your property, your homeowners' insurance won't cover it. Then suddenly, that cheap, exploitable, illegal labor isn't so cheap after all.

I guess they think that hiring cheap, illegal labor to cut their costs while screwing over their fellow American workers is the American thing to do? Huh? What kind of Americans are these?

I tutor and mentor AMERICAN CITIZENS through Big Brothers and pay an exorbitant amount of taxes. We have enough deserving U.S. citizens that need assistance and charity. My preference is to address their needs before the needs of people from other countries.

I did, by bringing up Barry Goldwater and the Civil Rights legislation.

You still can not distinguish between your opinion and law. "We the people" is not codified in any law I know of. The Consituion applies to everyone equally who is inside Americas borders and/or territories.


If it didn't we could just execute non citizens for simple law violations like speeding or jaywalking.
