To clairfy, I think most of us are not anti-immigrant, per se. It just drives us crazy that the government will do nothing to stop the illegal flow of people coming into this country...just legalize it or enforce the laws.
The is no question that the system now is broken and out of control. Yes, wages being driven through the floor is not necessarily a bad thing if the price of goods and services comes down as well. But the current system is completely out of control, and that is unacceptable to many.
It's unacceptable to me also, but what I support(a documented guest wroker program) gets shouted down with insults, because it doesn't include a new 2,000 mile Berlin like wall and such.
And most of the rhetoric I see from the other side almost borders on the doomsday cultish. America has always been a land of immigrants and has prospered for 229 years, despite the gloom and doom predictions.
