People coming from "sh!thole countries" for a better life in America is a good thing.

Top Comment

If a person coming from a shithole country and has something positive to offer this country, and comes here legally, it's a good thing. If they are coming here to leach off the taxpayers or live a life of crime, it's a bad thing.

Why let in anyone who isn't a dr or other well trained professional person? Most of the poor countries were made that way by europeans. Let them pay for their own greed.

Yes putting the screws to Trump business may be the way to smarten him up. He wants to have a big business to go back to when he is done in office. Threaten that business he will learn actions have consequences.

Not really. There are basically 2 kinds of people who emigrate from poor and troubled countries. The "gold": successful, educated people like doctors and professionals, and the "dross": poor, often backward, generally uneducated people.

If you welcome the gold into your country, they'll probably do fairly well, assuming their credentials are recognized and they didn't buy their degree rather than earn it (corruption is rampant in many places). But losing those people is a tragedy for the nations they left, making the situation there even worse than it already was for all the rest of the people living there.

If you accept the dross, there's an endless supply of them, their numbers could easily overwhelm the existing population of your country and they have little to offer besides low skilled labor. Since such jobs are increasingly rare and they don't have the resources to get an education, you can either pay to educate them, which is a gamble, or pay to keep them on government assistance, which costs a lot of money, and government spending is already above tax revenue. They also bring with them all of the social and cultural problems they're attempting to flee, so now those problems are in your town. Those who do find employment usually send money back home to family members, which is a drain on the economy.

It's a bad idea no matter which way you slice it.

The solution for people in poor and troubled countries isn't for them to leave, it's for them to stay and build their nations, so they're not shitholes that they want to leave. There are things we in the west can do to help facilitate their development, probably the largest one is reigning in multinational corporations and ending corporate welfare. Take Haiti for example, their market is flooded with subsidized, low cost food grown in America. "Well what's wrong with cheap food?" Nothing, except farming is one of the things people used to do in Haiti to get ahead, but their farmers can't compete with artificially cheap foreign imports that your tax dollars subsidize.

How is bringing unskilled people with no real interest in assimilating into America a good idea?

If we're going to allow immigration at all, why not bring in people that WANT to be American that have skills / knowledge that will benefit America?

[Or, are we still pretending to not know the real reasons behind the left's desire to bring destitute people into the country for voting purposes.]

Should be based on merit. Is there something to honestly offer to improve the country? Skills, education, the immediate means to keep themselves off the Government dole? Otherwise aren’t immigrants who are from Crime ridden countries, who have no specific education nor skills a hindrance on the hard working Citizens who actually pay taxes. Perhaps we should have a “Check the box” tax system. Make it a hundred boxes as to what people want their money to go to. Everybody allowed 10 boxes when they fill out their tax documents to work. How many would check the box “bring in people from other countries with no education or skills”? Seriously. How many? What percentage of working people who pay taxes would put that in their top 10? I’d love to know.

Remember, when flying, the attendants told parents to put on their own oxygen masks and then tend to the children? You have to take care of yourself and then take care of your family. Then and only then can you take on more responsibility for the rest of the neighborhood,
city, state, or other countries that need help.
