Is the situation of the Muslim migration to Europe and its effects and attitude towards it basically the same as the Latin American migration into the US?

In some ways, perhaps. But Latin America is part of Western Civilization, so immigration from that part of the world to our country isn't really too terrible, like Muslim immigration to Europe is. It's not so much that the Muslims are non-Western in background; it's that they're anti-Western. After all, we get immigrants from non-Western countries such as China, and they are readily assimilable to our culture.

There is no attitude towards immigration.

There is an attitude towards ILLEGALITY.

This is 100% correct. There does exist some anti immigrant sentiment somewhat but overall America is extremely receptive towards immigrants. What they’re against however is illegal immigration.

I don't know the attitude towards Latin-Americans, do they also drive lorries into crowds and live on welfare while they call you infidels?

The two are, in practice, very nearly synonymous. Only a tiny number meet the eligibility criteria for legal immigration. The west in unaware that it has created a rigid caste system, in which one's status is assigned at birth and is nearly impossible to break.

Lots of people get citizenship in other nations. Live in other nation long enough, get a lawyer and you'll find ways to get citizenship.

Oh bull.

Legal ways of entry into the United States fill pages and pages and pages and pages and pages and pages and pages of the law books - ask any lawyer -, and hundreds of thousands and up to a MILLION (1,000,000) apply and gain entry EVERY YEAR.

The number of illegals is tiny in comparison.

The United States will continued to need, I estimated in round numbers, another 150 MILLION immigrants, LEGAL immigrants over the next 10-20-30-50-100 years, gradually and LEGALLY, who are socially mobile, that's SOCIALLY MOBILE, through their own risk-taking, their own businesses, their own professions, their own corporate and government careers, their education - in that order -.

So the US may have to increase the pace of LEGAL immigration to about 1.5-2.0 million per year.

Yes, there will be tomato pickers, but there are and will continue to be Supreme Court Justices, and everything in between.

Problem is, ILLEGAL immigration is too profitable for a few in what they do in reality, regardless of stupid ideologies that they spew from their mouths. They are the ones who want a caste system.

Stop fantasizing stupid ideologies and get your head out of your arse, please.

^ And, where are these 150 million immigrants supposed to live? This country is no longer in need of millions of inhabitants. For an idea of overpopulation see Bangladesh, India, China. Pollution, crowding, hygiene issues, deforestation, loss of habitat are the results of too many people.
