Hmmm, one good decision in 60 years or more? That's something to applaud, realistically it is a good decision, but a smarter decision would have been to curb immigration until such time that the unemployment level went over say 2%. Close the doors until we needed them open, that might have been a plan and maybe we wouldn't have double digit unemployment right now or what is turning into a majority services-only based society. Change the immigration rules maybe, so that people with a skill set that was immediately required (due to job openings that couldn't be filled by people already here) were allowed in with their immediate family, meaning wife and kids, not ever ef'ing relative under the sun? Hey, how about this one, rather than give the immigrants $2,600 a month and all the perks, why don't we give the $1,600 the government gives to our pensioners, to the immigrants and the $2,600 to the pensioners. You know, the people who actually worked here for 50 years and helped build our society?
It's too little too late, our politicians have screwed us over by catering to the corporations rather than the people they allege to represent. Personally, I'd like to see them all hanging from lamp posts (after a trial of course). No offense OP, but the government really pisses me off.
