The point is if you are not WASP and rich it is nearly impossible it get in the U.S. legally. I doubt your ancestors had this much trouble becoming legal when they immigrated. And, if you are of native ancestry, it wasn't until 1924 that the U.S. granted all natives citizenship. The current system is raciest and broken and needs to be fixed. Your nation of origin and social status should have no bearing on eligibility.

In my opinion, if you are willing to contribute and be productive member of society you should be let in. If you are coming to the U.S. for criminal purposes or want to live on the dole, don't bother to apply. We have enough of our own. We don't need more.

"The point is if you are not WASP and rich it is nearly impossible it get in the U.S. legally."

Why is it that every liberally backed discussion always has to mention race? Is there really any purpose behind such statements other than to slyly couch those in opposition to their argument as racists? I would also take exception to the idea that only rich WASPs get citizenship rights here as I feel a breakdown of whom is allowed to legally emigrate here summarily invalidates that point.


"I doubt your ancestors had this much trouble becoming legal when they immigrated. And, if you are of native ancestry, it wasn't until 1924 that the U.S. granted all natives citizenship."

Correct, when my ancestors emigrated here in the early 1800s from England, Ireland, Scotland and Germany pretty much anyone who made it to shore was welcomed in. So no, there were no legal challenges to their being allowed in. This realistically has no bearing on existing immigration laws of today however.


"The current system is raciest and broken and needs to be fixed."

Again with the racists claims. Perhaps you could enlighten myself and many others to the sections of immigration law that are indeed racist in nature? Believe it or not most conservatives are against racist policies too and if such policies exist within our immigration laws you'd likely find many folks willing to support you assertions, if they are indeed provable.


"Your nation of origin and social status should have no bearing on eligibility. In my opinion, if you are willing to contribute and be productive member of society you should be let in."

Here's where you and I will find a large bone of contention wolfie.
1. There are far too many places on this ol spinnin orb where America and Americans are viewed with digust and even outright hatred, meaning every potential immigrant should be thoroughly screened for exactly what purpose or reason they have in wanting to emigrate here. We have plenty enough enemies outside our borders as well as within them. We need to be vigilant to all threats from outside our borders and as such must be sure not to allow any discernible further risks within our borders just because they say they "want" to come in.

2. While social status should have little if any bearing on ones right to emigrate here, there is most certainly a need on the US' part to insure we as a society stand to benefit from their immigration. We have more than sufficient numbers of un/undereducated/unskilled laborers capable of any jobs and as such, why would we need to allow members of that ilk to further populate our country, and if so, what derived benefit could we as a nation hope to gain from allowing immigration of such folks other than as more consumers of the public teat, which is dryin up faster than water spilled on a siewalk in the hot July sun. WE have more than enough ditch diggers and McDonalds "chefs" already without allowing any more in. What we need are doctors, scientists, industrialists and entrepreneurs, those who genuinely have something beneficial to offer our society.

3. If you study the well documented topic of immigration by even the numbers allowed annually by the federal regulations on "legal" immigration you'd find that even that amount is unsustainable in terms of environmental impact, immigration numbers vs available jobs, cost of governance vs. tax dollars collected and last but not least the burden these additional immigrants place upon our national social services and continued entitlement systems, which are already at the brink of absolute failure with only our current population numbers.
