Wow, all them thar "Mexicans, Africans & Muslims" just showed up in the last 2 1/2 years? Who knew?
Never mind the fact that Reagan still holds the record for the largest blanket amnesty ever given in this country. And since the article refers to the latest census results, and that census covers 10 years, what did the previous POTUS do to cut down on the invasion?

I don't expect an intelligent response from you Cletus. I'm sure you're busy washing and ironing your sheet and hood for tonight's meeting. I hear there's a formal dance/mixer afterwards.

Yes, but most of these people don't shower that often and spread communicable diseases and bad cheer. I for one would like to see a round-up and ponder the cheapest method of disposing of filth.

We need to stop the "we are a nation of immigrants" idiocy and join the 21st century.
No immigration, no work visas, no nothing.
I can't move to Canada, Britain or Australia without becoming a citizen there and they have requirements to do so like employability, no criminal history, a college education and you must read and write either English or French and an oath of allegience to the Queen/King. They were a "nation of immigrants" too, they wised up!

I suppose now that you are a an nth generation American, i guess you forgot somewhere along that your ancestors also arrived in this country,fresh of the boat. They would have been ashamed to read your opinion on immigrants. If you folks had any good level of education, the U.S. wouldn't have to go approving job petitions to immigrants. Start ensuring that your kids are studying in school. Don't let your kids hang out in street corners and malls until 10 p.m. each night. You might do a little good towards nation building instead of That ranting over the immigrant population.
Cheers!

Congratulations on Philadelphias growth, are you kidding me. That's like congratulating a 400 pound man for gaining 50 pounds. Pennsylvania better wise up and pass some laws to discourage all this unneeded migration.

You people don't seem to understand the problems that comes with so MANY immigration ! The crime,end of a great medical system to Obama care that turns everybody away.Medicare and aetna are using the Obama care plan to make deductable's so high you can't go to doctor's or the hospital !The education system is going under by lowering standards so no one fails or LEARNS ! LOOK AT YOUR PROPERTY TAX(average is 6500 a year)WHY NOT A TAX RATE WHERE THE PARENTS PAYS FOR EACH CHILD,WOULD BE FAIR!HAVE YOU NOTICED THE DISABLE AMERICAN VETERAN DON"T GET A BREAK ON THEIR TAXES IN PA(GREAT WAY TO THANK YOUR VET'S FOR GIVING THEIR LIFE AND LIMBS FOR US!)!(a lot of older people have lost or will lose their homes)so you can educate immigrants to take your children's jobs !Look at the economy it's getting worse,Europe's banks are the next to fall,Germany can't hold them up much longer then it hits America full force bank failure !IT"S TIME TO SEND 70 million immigrants back to Mexico and South America and Oprah's millions of girls she brought into this country back to their homes before we slip into the MAJOR DEPRESSION WE ARE HEADED INTO !

DIVERSITY DOES DESTROY,JUST LOOK AT THE WORLD FAILURE AND WHAT CAUSED IT ! THIS HAS TO COME TO A STOP OR WE WILL HAVE NO AMERICA OR IS IT TOO LATE ALREADY!!

Ok, so to all the angry white people toting the immigration probs I ask you- WHERE should they live? I don't want generalized answers of "not here" or "go back home" nonsense b/c the Native Americans can say the same about you- but I want REALISTIC, well thought out answers. Do you have the actual solution? Can you do that? Where should they live?
