    Not my problem to make you aware that just because a practice existed that it does not mean it should be maintained throughout eternity.

    I don't care whether you make me aware of anything. I care and am asking you to corroborate your claim, which you have yet to do, thus making it empty and unfounded, therefore irrelevant.

    We voted for change. If you need corroboration of that you should be posting over at Nickelodeon.

    Your claim has nothing to do with whether anyone voted for change. Are you going to support it or not?

    As I asked before, insofar as you made the claim you did, I just want, per the thread rules, that you support it with sound and credible content. What was your claim? This:
    I'm not saying you're right or wrong. I'm saying corroborate your claim. (If I knew whether you're correct or not, I wouldn't ask you to support your claim.)

    If you cannot support your claim, you are welcome to retract it.

    A Green Card's duration is 10 years and it's for Registered Aliens.

    The main purpose of the program is to try to get aliens with skills lacking here in America to come here. Doctors are a good example, especially in rural areas. American MDs generally want to work in big cities with income in the mid- to high six figures.

    This is just Trump doubling down on his base's xenophobia. First, demonize illegal immigrants, and build a wall across the Southern border. Then ban immigrants from "terrorists" nations (which, oddly enough, does not include Saudi Arabia, where almost all the 9/11 hijackers came from). Then, put the travel embargo back on Cuba. Then, ban poor immigrants from all nations. Yet, in spite of this, his base is starting to melt away. I guess that next, he will ban immigrants from all nations, except where he has business interests. If his poll numbers continue to slip, look for a preemptive was on North Korea.

    You're right, we should include SA.

    How is it xenophobic to want to restrict the people that come to this country and have to go on welfare because they don't have the skills or language to get and keep a job?

    Isn't that common sense?

    I kind of liked his outburst. Acosta ran away like a little puppy then tried to cover-up his error later with lame excuses. Does Acosta not know >60 countries have English as a first language and hundreds of others are bi lingual. Ever since the invention of the video Cassettes and satellite dish the most remove countries in the world have been watching and listening to English HOLLYWOOD movies.
