Why is it that only the old white people are angry and hateful about immigrants? If they hate the USA so much then they should go back to Europe.

Turner, you are a smug, sanctimonious, stupid, but nevertheless, over-educated loudmouth buffoon. You pollute this forum with your mendacity, hyperbole and deliberate misinformation. You may think you are a kind, well-informed and well-intentioned fighter for the truth, but you are a seditious, anti-American smart ass, the kind of person who shoots off his mouth in a bar thinking everyone is behind him, but when someone finally punches you in the mouth, the whole bar breaks out in cheers.
You are wrong on one point. Turner is obviously not that well educated. He likes to pretend that he is well educated but that is only a act. Remember Cliff from cheers? The spoiled middle aged postal worker who lived with his mommy. The rest is spot on.

Most people are NOT angry about immigrants.

HOWEVER, sneaking into the country is ILLEGAL and it is the breaking of our laws that is offensive to many.

The PRIMARY ASPECT of the goodness of the United States is the Rule of Law. Without RESPECT for the rule of law, our country would transgress into a third world country.

We don't need to 'remake' the economy; we need to IMPROVE the economy for all citizens and improve the middle class that is in danger of extinction.

Has anyone done a impact study on the Maximum population this country can hold,because that's where we're headed.Keep in mind the limited area we can grown crops already because of the population explosion and the limited area we can live in,plus the Water shortage we already have in some areas for crop growing and human consumption. Nothing good will come from adding millions of more immigrants to our population legal or otherwise.
There was a study commissioned by the U.S. Govt. about 10 years ago and Universities like Stanford, M.I.T. among others concluded that the U.S. needed approximatedly 700 million people to keep up economicly with India and China.
I don't know how many this country can hold for enviornmental reasons as well as social but, i'm not so sure i want to be living in a density thats comparable to some countries that we see that are struggling to maintain their population.

not talking more illegals entering, see article..

'In place of the unauthorized workers now commonly found laboring in lower-skilled jobs in the agriculture or service industries, many of these workers would be legal, some of them permanent resident green card holders or even citizens.

Illegal immigration across the border with Mexico would slow, while legal immigration would increase markedly.'

Wait until the new legal citizens trying to live above board attempt to pay taxes and other legal residence mainstream expenses. They will go right back to the underground cash only economy. As will many of the employers forced to legally hire millions of new employees with benefits and paper work.

"It sounds like you have not been following the debate. Nobody is trying "to import millions" of anybody. They are already here"
Again, this bill includes far more than the so-called 11 million illegals already here.
NO SH*T! It will open the door for about 1/3 of Mexico (and millions of others). The 11 million already here will each bring in a cousin, aunt or parent. In other words, 22-30 million.

This is insanity. The third world may be at our door, but the solution is easy. Shut the damn door!

God-damned liberals think we owe every poor person on the planet three hots & a cot. Actually, no we do not. Compassion, sympathy and perhaps some modest foreign aid, yes. But we CANNOT solve poverty throughout all of Latin America, much less the world.

We've been at our own "war on poverty" for the last 50 years. It hasn't done a damn thing. The poverty rate is unchanged. We have enough poor of our own. Opening the door for millions more is totally f*cking insane.

The American government and the people it represents HAVE THE RIGHT to decide under what circumstances ANYONE can enter the country. The government can also decide HOW MANY and FROM WHAT COUNTRIES it will allow into our sovereign nation.

Those who legally enter the country are WELCOME.

Those who illegally enter the country DO NOT BELONG HERE.

Yes, there are stupid Americans. Yes, there are stupid immigrants. Yes there are some people who are lazy - white, black, brown & yellow.

And yet there are also very successful people of all races living in America.

The only difference is that lazy people and successful people both GET TO STAY in the United States if they legally belong in the United States. The rest risk DEPORTATION or IMPRISONMENT.

Of course it is the right of the American people to say who can and cannot enter the country just as it is my right to say who comes in to my home and who does not.

Why is it, you Illegal Aliens think of yourselves as immigrants? There's a difference. Immigrants come over legally and Illegal Aliens don't. Immigrants work and become good Citizens where as Illegals only scam the Government and get whatever they can.
