Think about it. If you have a wallmount home phone, I bet you hardly ever answer it. We live in the cell phone age. You will never be polled if your sole source of communication is a cell. So who are they polling? The poor, who still have that wallmount. They answer it waiting for Publishers Clearing House to call. These people still buy magazines. What do you expect from these livs? They want more poor. They think Democracy is majority rule, or "mob rule" and not representative government....Our government is catering to livs. So the drive-by media is polling the poor, average IQ, 80, job, prison or welfare. This is where redistribution of wealth comes into play. This is Obama's private army, the reprobates of society. He should go ahead and make an executive order legalizing pot. His army would increase fivefold.

That comment shows you know nothing about our current "legal" immigration system.
Our legal immigration system is so restrictive that people from countries like Mexico have almost no chance of coming here legally unless they have a relative here or a specialized skill.
The reason they come here illegally is that they KNOW they have a better chance of winning the lottery than coming here legally.
This chart from Reason magazine is a pretty accurate summary of how completely screwed up our "legal" immigration system is:

What immigration laws were in place when the Native Americans saw the first European settlers? This is now a sovereign nation with immigration laws in place. It's just too bad that far too many administrations have done their best to ignore the situation until it exploded into what we have and see today. What the current gaggle of eight is proposing is ridiculous and will not fix a dang thing. There are areas where illegal entry is up x's three. The promise of forgiveness is the newest magnet. And that bug-eyed Janet continues to spew her lies.

all the restriction the better our immigration system is not and has never been put into place for immigrants, it is for the benefit of the country and her citizens. also we are not to let any public charges in, the minute they ask for any social service out they should go but we again go against our own rules and break them for others.

right now there is no need to bring anymore people there are not jobs to go around and we need to stop importing poverty.if anything we ned to add restriction to english speakers only and make sure they have the funds to support themselves.all immigration needs to stop for at least a decade or more

to add to the about we need to stop all chain migration and end the visa lottery which is based on country without any need to us.

all things comes down to this, who should get the jobs, a citizens who needs it or someone from another counrty who wants to come here? seems the citizens should come first before all others.
