Good post. The only thing I might add is that there should be a LIMIT to the number of children.<quoted text>
I haven't been posting much lately, time's been hard to come by. But I still skim through here a good bit.
Immigration? I haven't really been paying attention to who's saying what about it lately.
My opinion is that America is for Americans. If you're not supposed to be here you get nothing but deported. For that matter - I have no IDEA whey we take in so many foreign students into our universities. We teach them how to build nuclear power plants, weapons, satellites and everything else. Let them get educated in their own countries.
We should limit immigration to people who have lived in America for 5 or more years on work visa's who have proven themselves to be productive citizens and would like to stay. We might allow a few elderly relatives and children of those people in as well. Otherwise? Get out! We have enough of our own problems.
I think the only controversy should be about how to defend our thousands of miles of borders and coastlines against people coming through. That's just a practical issue.
At the very least, the babies that illegals are having here now should NOT be considered American citizens. THAT ticks me off. Half the Hispanics I see are knocked up and I'll bet you a nickel to a bottle of stump water that they are illegal.
