Why don't you share your thoughts on the topic?

Oh yeah... you're not interested in the topic. You're interested in the author.

Kinda weird don't ya think?

I know, people become fascinated with me.


Just what I thought, attention seeking. Right wing circle jerk threads are perfect if that's what you seek.

topic...immigration laws need to be enforced but not to the extent of separating mothers from their children.

Just curious... what's the upward limit on immigration?




Legal immigration? We haven't reached the limit.

Illegal immigration? We've already gone over our carrying capacity because so many are on welfare.

Or does that depend?

Ahhhhh, I get it.. undocumented Democrat's. It all makes sense now. Then they can implement their open borders, socialist utopia for the entire world to migrate to.



If illegal immigrants were to start voting Republican, liberals would DEMAND heavy artillery all along the border.


that's true LOL, what if Trump comes out pro immigration tomorrow?


If Trump came out in support of illegal immigration, wealthy liberals would fire their housekeepers/ gardeners/ personal assistants... out of spite.

Sure. Yeah.

For legal immigrants though? Nah. We have plenty of space, jobs, opportunities.

Illegal immigrants? Not too many "STEM" types crossing the border with mules.

That depends upon what you mean by that.

Well, factoring in other variables.

Like if such and such happens we could potentially do more than if such and such happens.

Kind of like what-if scenario's.

You know, like if we streamlined government so that it didn't bankrupt our entire nation or refined our medical and school system and whatever other variables said poster may be considering I really don't know.

I would just imagine that there would be what-ifs.

Lets ask the OP that same question: how many immigrants on a per year basis should be allowed to come here and become citizens?

I'd say a couple hundred thousand is pretty slow growth, but I am not super familiar with all the details.

I think they uproar is what is overblown... lets spend billions on a wall that won't be truly effective against illegal immigration, trillions on a war machine that pretty much self perpetuates itself and ignore the growing wealth inequality while we blame the central american fruit picker for all our problems.

Its a joke.

I am taking myself out of this conversation before I say something stupid. I will admit that I was triggered. Please do keep in mind that not all of us “lefties” are the same. Most of us have a very kind heart.

Kindest regards

Immigration quotas

Apparently, we have quota's currently on legal immigration do you think they are accurate/ good?

No matter how many migrants and refugees the West takes in, nothing will change unless we help these people where they live. It's as simple as mathematics.

In that case...maybe. Increasing the federal deficit is most likely not a good idea. But I'm not sure what it has to do with immigration. Unless you mean that reducing the income taxes that immigrants pay will help.

Do you?

I know. I have plenty of leftist friends, they aren't the fringe left that I'm referencing. They are the ones who particularly grind my gears. I'm sure the fringe right would as well but I don't encounter their philosophy as often so it's less annoying.

All is well.

I think if we cleaned house and got our institutions working right we would more scalability. As it stands our system is crumbling.

IMO we need to focus on our issues before trying to save the world. That would include cleaning house with our government.

I've seen that and agree. I would love to freely travel to Mexico and live in the Yucatan for a few years. Not going to happen unless a lot of things change in the world first.

Yes.
I think it's good that Pruitt "resigned." How did he get that job anyway?

You may think it's a joke, but open borders is the real joke. We have an entire continent of 3rd world nations to the south it's in our best interests to have some kind of border.

Troll pick. Trump knows the EPA can be paid off and influenced by donating to the right politicians campaign.
