Legal law abiding immigrants who have applied legally and via our immigration processes have always been welcomed. Now on the other hand illegal aliens have never and will never be "welcomed" unless it's to deportation and/or a jail cell where they belong.

You racist idiots make me sick. Nothing you say has any basis. You are talking out of your ass and, well, only shit comes from there. Illegal immigrants do pay taxes. They pay sales tax, property tax, income tax, and every other damn tax that exists. My 100% US citizen father evaded taxes for years...nobody ousted his ass from the country! "Illegals" can not and do not receive government assistance. If they are receiving assistance for their citizen children, then so fucking be it! Many Americans receive benefits...What this country needs is to educate all the dumb asses in addition to welfare reform resulting in career preparation rather than hand outs for all beneficiaries regardless of race. Diversity is what makes this country grand. Idiots like you taint the image and create hate towards the American people. Don't bother responding because I only consider feedback from the intelligent!

Thank you for supporting legal immigrants. But there is a problem: I'm not poor, I'm from Europe, having a degree and know about US history/ issues and I cannot immigrate because of few quotas (tried it). Maybe I would start a little business: still cannot do it (because of $1 million minimum). The reform of legal immigration needed and many skilled workers and investors are waiting for that.

The US is in a unique situation: The country could welcome more legal immigrants (and strengthen the economy) but from the 1920s failed to do it. Even shut the door on most of Europeans. Now I hope it will be corrected after 90 years.

Also, I forgot to mention that not just the US immigration system has to be corrected. My American friend's visa application was also rejected by the Hungarian system. So there is a need to fix the immigration globally for skilled workers.

With all of that elite liberal D.C. and NYC and LA bitchin', they never mention that we are going to hell right behind Britain; saying it is hate when we mention that Britain is no longer great, since it has opened its borders to the turd world and now vomits and hurls with Sharia for girls.

We've been through this a thousand times dodo bird...everybody pays when they buy stuff big deal whether they be a visitor to the US, resident alien, or legal citizen. Illegal aliens don't pay the kind of taxes that get put to the programs they take money out of you maroon. You know that section 8 housing you mooched off of while you had that illegal alien girlfriend, the kind that paid for the food you ate that should have been going to her kids..you know those kind there juanita you freakin dimwit.

You witness a presidential melt down without any leadership initiative. Our country staggers forward day after day, crisis after crisis—with no leadership to take command of the situation. Benghazi, debt crisis, gridlocked Congress, last minute averting of our finances instead of six months before the problem and dozens of other problems. Basically, Obama lacks the intellectual horsepower or leadership dynamic or talent to correct the devolvement of America.

Not that anyone could lead a herd of cats known as our U.S. Congress!

Instead, he helplessly watches it proceed to its and our lowest common denominator. In the end, leadership leads and makes things better. Lack of leadership watches things get worse. When Obama reached the White House, 36 million Americans subsisted on food stamps. Today, 47.7 million subsist on food stamps because they cannot secure a job. Another 14 million lost their jobs when Obama took office. Today, the same 14 million cannot secure a job.

An unknown Canadian made the following references to America’s ironies:

Businesses pay more in taxes than you ever would so who's really paying the brunt of the social cost?

When things are tough, functionally-illiterate immigrants, illegal and otherwise, cannot legally create or make enough or more than they and their dependents take; public services and schools not even being free for you and me, you see. Retard Republicuns and dumbass Dimuhcrats not losing any sleep because they keep adding to their herds of cheap creeps and sheep to fleece.

I just have one question for you. While I agree with you only in reducing criminal illegal immigration, would you support more legal immigration for people with the same culture like in the US? Because I am that person and found no way to do it.

Within reason and ONLY if they contributed to our country instead of seeking welfare.

That's good to hear, I think the same way. Unfortunately the immigration system doesn't give me a chance to do for the country. And that was the same under Bush, Clinton and Obama, there is no change in legal settlement. I was on the East Coast as a tourist and that's all. I would even go to the military if it was possible. Is that fair? I didn't sneak into the country, even though haven't got any chance.
There is no justice for me and other people. US is losing such people like this outstanding Hungarian: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mikl%C3%B3s_Perc...
He could do it just because of open-door policy from Europe.
