Nativism is not an American value, Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson declared Thursday, delivering a pointed rebuke to Donald Trump without mentioning his name while calling on an end to immigration quotas symptomatic of a broken system.
The overwhelming cause of illegal immigration and visa overstays is the fact that our legal immigration process simply doesnt work, and that we impose absurd caps on various work visas, Johnson said in a statement on Thursday with his remarks to the annual National Association of Latino Elected Officials conference in Washington. Let the market, not bureaucrats and special interests, determine how many workers we allow into the country.
The United States' borders "must be controlled," he said, but such control "begins with knowing who is entering the country and why not building another Great Wall or banning immigrants on the basis of ethnicity or religion."(continued)

Self-inflicted genocide is also not an American value, Johnny.
Another open borders guy.
Not worried about Johnson/Weld. Weld is a globalist. They’ll strip votes from the Bernie crowd who would have otherwise backed Hillary.
What the heck is “nativism”?
Some kind of fetish about wearing war bonnets?
Rule of law is an American value. This guy is a joke.
“The overwhelming cause of illegal immigration and visa overstays is the fact that our legal immigration process simply doesnt work ....
Gary, “Then change the process. Until then, enforce the law.”
If you’re not willing to enforce the law, that makes you no better than the current bastard we call president.
1925-1965; ZERO immigration.
No, no in fact it IS an American value and what we have now is a whacko ABERRATION.
Loving your country, it's people and culture.
What crap. If you’re not a “nativist,” you’re a globalist. If you’re a globalist, you are by definition against American sovereignty.
So how is being against American sovereignty an American value?
The moron Glenn Beck can go vote for that weirdo.
I consider myself a libertarian, but this guy really bothers me.
IMHO - libertarianism is about government not interfering in society and civil society, to govern itself, at the lowest possible level. Having government-imposed social-engineering and political-immigration is, a very statist and dictatorial thing to do.
We all know what would happen if he were elected - he’d let everyone smoke pot and open the borders, but would leave the nanny-state, Federal Reserve and our welfare society untouched, because that would be too hard.
Nativism: the policy of protecting the interests of native inhabitants against those of immigrants.
Question: How can there be ANY “American value” if nativism is not allowed?
What a MORON!
We used to be a “MULTI-RACIAL MONO-LINGUAL MONO-CULTURE”
we cannot survive as a “MULTI-RACIAL MULTI-LINGUAL MULTI-CULTURE”
We have to have 2 out of 3 as a “NATIONAL GLUE” to hold crap together, otherwise we will descend into Balkanisation tribalism and break up...
Too much pot addles the brain
And Sharia law is?
No matter how much you echo 0bama’s policies and ‘values’ he isn’t going to let you join his Choom Gang...
Even if you bring the dope, you don’t have anywhere near enough epidermal melanin for them to let you join in.
I wasn’t even thinking about giving a crap one way or another about him.
The Roman empire based on mostly Latin lads lasted 500 years. Its multicultural empire lasted about 200.
And I can’t think of one that was similar that lasted THAT long without a strong demographic majority.
