In your ideal world what kind of immigration laws do you think we should have and why?
We should allow as much immigration as possible because
1) It helps people
2) It increases human welfare
3) It expands our economy
4) taxes raised from immigrants exceed spending on immigrants meaning we all become richer
I 99% agree with you. The 1% of course being reserved for further rebuttals that will come against this idea.
We don't even enforce the ones we already have.
Go back and read the OP....What would it be like if it were up to you.....
I would keep the present laws as is . Enforce them to the letter. In an "IDEAL" world, there wouldn't be any need to control immigration, because there wouldn't be a stampede over national borders like so many wild cattle on a rampage.Illegal aliens are human beings and they know full well the consequences of their actions. They know what they have done, and it is time to pay the bloody piper...I think American immigration laws are fair enough. It is the mindset of the new “immigrants” I question. That perhaps, is were the focus should be.
I see so you prefer a policies that makes people poorer. I ask why?
1. It helps the people who want the citizens to support them and pay for their education, housing and medical needs.
2. It ruins and takes down our economy. Our schools are failing in many areas as are our hospitals. We can not as a nation support the entire world that wants to come here to live. It takes away from jobs.
We have laws here in the United States and they are not being followed. We pick up citizens who break laws and we are punished
and illegals are rewarded. IT IS AGAINST THE LAW TO BE IN THE COUNTRY WITHOUT PROPER IDENTIFICATION AND CREDENTIALS.
We should pick up every illegal and take them home
.free. We should build security on our borders and man it with people who will enforce the laws already on the books.
Can you imagine the boost to the economy if every illegal who was mooching on the economy would go home? What would that do to our prison population? Our crowded schools? Hospitals?
We should change one law on the books and that is if a woman gives birth to a child and is not a citizen of the country then her child takes on the citizenship of the country she belongs too and not the United States.
We have great immigration laws already on the books, we just need to enforce all of them and protect our borders from illegal crossings.
This is the 1% reason I was alluding to earlier....
There isn't a single historian that would disagree with the fact that the huge immigration waves of the past were a good thing for this country..... but the big difference between today and then is that we have a huge welfare system that would be overwhelmed if we opened the flood gates again....
Cut back on welfare programs and we could justify more poor immigration.....
