This country already has too many people. And look at the riffraff among even the legal immigrants.
Our scenic areas and historical battlefields are being destroyed for tacky housing developments. Traffic jams are growing problem in my area. As Daily pointed out in "Too Many Americans," our quality of life is being damaged by numbers.
We import legally Somalis, for example. I recommend that you read the book or watch the film "Black Hawk Down."

As refugees from war... The U.S. does that for refugees in many other wars as well.
As for the rest of your screed, I find it very disturbing. My ancestors were "riffraff" who came over from Europe during the late 19th century. As were yours, I'm sure. And I think that those immigrants made America a much better place. Therefore, I have a similar view of current immigrants. If someone is willing to work hard and better himself or herself, then I think that he or she should be welcomed into the U.S. The more legal immigration there is, the better..
