Our entire immigration system in the US is broken! We are addicted to low cost labor available from poorer countries. This has been the case since the birth of the country – why should we expect otherwise now?
I am Irish. When my forefathers came to this country they were likely trying to escape poverty and famine in the old country. When they came here, they had virtually no money and they had to work – in fact they expected to work. That is why they came to the land of opportunity!
Many of the canals of the Midwest and the railroads going west were built with the sweat of Irish labor (along with many other ethnic groups). This is a good thing and was the price of success for entering the land of the free and the brave. This condition is what we need to preserve in this country – hard work and moderately fair pay for those that are willing to do it. Lord, knows that we have enough people in this country that DON’T want to work hard but I will rant on welfare at some other time.
LET THE IMMIGRANTS COME AND WE CAN SEND THOSE PEOPLE WHO DON’T WANT TO WORK TO ANOTHER COUNTRY!
I am done with this topic for now but I reserve the right to rant more on it someday.
