UNTRUE. I just do not believe we should allow any more immigration into the U.S. for environmental reasons. We have too large a population as it is. There is NO "RIGHT" to immigrate into the U.S. and every sovereign country has a RIGHT to control it's borders in any way it sees fit.

If you don't believe that then why have any immigration laws or borders, or border controls at all ?

Your tax money only goes to the rich anyway, with tax breaks for them and these multi billion dollar corporations

So he's giving the Dems another opportunity to grow a backbone. I kinda think he'll be disappointed (along with all the rest of us).

What I don't understand is that the people that have the most to gain from adopting reasonable immigration reform is the Republicans. WHY can't the Dems simply put equal recognition for same-sex couples in the bill and then tell the Repugs, "We DARE you to scuttle this bill. GO for it!! Let's see how you do in the next election if you do."

BUT.... that would take some backbone where none exists. So I'm not holding my breath.

Your employees deserve them more than you do. Presumptively, you treat them poorly and pay them even more poorly, if you're like most American corporations.

You really do live in a fantasy world if you believe that.

The 1% certainly don't post on Topix. They'd have people to do that for them if it even registered on their consciousness.
