Maybe, but if people have those problems then they should apply for asylum, not immigration. But, of course we should welcome the tired, poor, hungry and sick.
I am for greater immigration with a few regulations.I recently went to NY and saw the Statute of Liberty. It made me think. I believe we should allow immigration as we once did.The following regulations make sense to me.1. No criminal background, unless proven to be unjust by our standards.2. No disease, nothing communicable period3. Pass a cultural/basic language test. We should provide the class teaching our viewpoint of history and Basic English. "Thank you" would be a good place to start.4. A loyalty pledge, stating they will follow our laws and if convicted of a felony they will leave.If I thought about this more maybe I'd add a few regulations, but these seem like enough.On a side note, illegal immigrants don't pay income taxes. Even if they are on a payroll they simply claim 10 dependants so few taxes are taken out and they never file a tax return. I worked in a restaurant for 5 years, 1 year with payroll, I know. Some legal immigrants do the same. I knew the illegal immigrants only because they told me they were illegal.
When did it become the United States' responsibility for the conditions created by the Mexican government? Is the U.S. to be held responsible for the living conditions of each and every country in the world? To be the recipient of every individual who "thinks" he/she can make a better living in the U.S.? Without any restrictions or limitations?
