There should be NO immigration into the U.S. by ANYONE at ANYTIME for ANY reason.

Let them go to one of the "Workers' Paradise"es known as Cuba or The Demokratik People's Socialist Republik Of Kanada" if they want to come to the Americas.

Yes. That's what I said. If they want to come to "The Americas", then let them go to one of the "Worker's Paradise"es called Cuba or The Demokratik People's Socialist Republik Of Kanada.

I address the issue of immigration STRICTLY on the basis of environmental protection. We have a limited amount of land, and a limited amount of resources, both natural and man-made. A given amount of land, can only support a given amount of people. More people means a greater strain on water, and other natural resources, and more pollution.

Do you want 400 million people in the U.S.? How about half a billion ? A billion ? Where do YOU draw the line ? There is no "RIGHT" to immigrate into the U.S. It's a privilege and it's been abused, to the detriment of ALL Americans.

Then you could set up a roadblock and deport all bible-banging religious homophobes that crash your gate
