"The net effect of immigration to the United States is a drain on U.S. native workers of about $70 billion per year, according to a new study by two Columbia University professors and the Center for Immigration Studies.
The study challenges the assumption that immigration is like trade in that it is a net benefit both to the U.S. economy and immigrants' home nations.
The authors argue that the United States has a strong technological advantage over other nations and immigrants who come to this country to work have access to that technology, making them more competitive with native workers than they otherwise would be. In addition, the fact that immigrants are not living overseas and consuming American workers' products also hurts U.S. exports. "

Even the PC universities can see what "illegals" are doing to this country, even if they can't bring themselve to say it out loud.

Close the borders, close them now, round up illegals and send them back.

No he just likes to write things to get people to respond...he doesn't even believe what he writes, he always contradicts himself. He's kinda like a serial thought provoker but there is no reason to aruge his points because there is no logic behind them.

America was built by immigrants DrH. What is an American if not a descendant from immigration stock.
Maybe now it's built you want them all to go home? Who's gonna cut the lawns, park the cars and serve the cocktails at the country club. For heavens sake man, just think.... whities would have to do it.

Without leagal immigrants, America would not be the great nation it is today. We have so many cultures here blended together it has allowed our culture to spread across the world. Everyone can identify with some aspect of it. Complaining about the cost of legal immigrants is like the taxation of cigarettes to increase revenue. It's really short sighted. We may spend money initially, but what is returned in both culture, economy, law, and stability is infinitly more valuable than several tens of billions of dollars up front. Gotta spend money to make money, but in this case you have to spend money to make a great nation.

Perhaps if you could quell your hate for 'whiteie" you could find some logic. Perhaps if you lost your own "arrogance" you could find some logic. Any "contradictions" are in YOUR mind. The ENTIRE purpose of ATS is discussion, not everyone agreeing with each other. Now do you have anything constructive to add? Please do so or just move on.........Try proving logic against the data? Perhaps links to further your opinion.
