Were all Immigrants to America. Even the Native Americans migrated from Asia thousands of years ago. Immigration is fine, and what feeds and keeps us
alive and pumping.
Illegal immigration is the problem. Undocumented people that havent been checked are the hazard, not legal ones who have been approved and let in.
Legal immigrants do contribute. They bring yummy food, interesting cultural beliefs, and new perspective, plus its really neat when you see a legal
immigrant come from some third world #hole with nothing in thier pockets and end up with great sucess or simply, settiling down and building a life.
Its when they sneak into the country that they are a problem. When they sneak in, they could be carrying disease, or plan on criminal activity, or
even terrorism, or many bad things. Not all illegals, but if you dont document, do background checks, and medical exams, how will you know?
We need to clamp down on illegals and tighten up the borders, especially with current international threats, but should always make sure that those
who really want to come here and participate and get away from thier own hellish countries always have the option to do so, otherwise, we may as well
get rid of the Statue of Liberty.
We also need to let skilled labor in from not so poor countries, like in Europe, because not just the poor immigrants, but we also need educated minds
from everywhere to contribute, invent, and innovate.
