We’re actually very, very generous with legal immigration, Katie. Now go back to Newsweak.
...and in other news, deadly swine flu (that originated in Mexico) has been found in the US.
Have a nice day and keep voting Democrat. :)
Dude, it's a global crisis. Unless you have another globe available, leaving isn't really an option.
In fact, the economy isn't as affected here as in most of the rest of the world.
Didn’t Ted Kennedy write a law in the 1960’s that limited immigration from European Nations? and allowed greater numbers from 3rd world countries? We have diseases now that were once curable that are now showing strains that are resistant to medications. I say close the borders from 3rd world countries.
...at this point I’d settle for deporting Congress. To Antarctica, because it’s the only continent that could survive them.
The problem with the new immigrants is that many of them come here with their dumbass ideas about how America would be better if it were a Socialist or Communist state. The majority of them desire a government nanny state loaded with handouts and freebies and they end up voting that way. The Commie D’RATS are happy to oblige them in order to gain total power and control over the country.
Reading newsweak is like splashing a bucket of garbage on your brain. How does this Trotsky rag stay in business? There aren’t that many doctors offices.
With increased cases of TB, swine flue, AIDS cases I would venture to say that the US is NOT shutting out immigrants. Well, then, maybe we are shutting out healthy Europeans and others who share our culture, respect our borders, and support our English language, all thanks to Ted Kennedy.
Bill Gates is a big supporter of the H1B visa program, allowing foreign student graduates to stay in this country for 6 years after graduation. Companies use this program to drive down wages for technical talent, as the H1B folks will accept lower than market wages for the privilege of remaining in this country. The justification, as Gates says, is that we don’t have sufficient talent in this country. While that may be true at some point in the future, I don’t believe it to be true now.
As I look to move from self-employed back into a technical position in industry, I have refused (so far) to apply to companies offering to help secure an H1B visa for applicants. They might as well advertise “Americans need not apply....”
Only a half-million illegals per year?
Dream on, Newsweek.
We should have special immigration quotas for journalists to immigrate here to replace stupid sh!ts like the Newsweek stooge who wrote this
“Every year since 2000, the U.S. has attracted more than 1 million legal immigrants, including more than 1.1 million last year, and another half million illegal migrants. The walls are not as high as we thought.”
WRONG. Where do they get their figures?
According the the US Government.......Add them up.....legal entries are over 2 million every year. The Obama Administration wants MORE legal immigrants and wants to amnesty 12 to 20 million more illegal aliens!
Some of the DAILY work of USCIS according to their own document:

WASHINGTON (AP) Hispanics made up nearly half of the more than 1 million people who became U.S. citizens last year, according to a Hispanic advocacy group. The National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials said the number of Latinos who became Americans in fiscal year 2008 more than doubled over the previous year, to 461,317. That’s nearly half of the record 1,046,539 new citizens overall in 2008, a 58 percent increase from 2007. http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5gQKI-mUtzRTYIm7MjslLxEoz2zVgD97DFPI01
Study: Illegal Immigrants Having More Kids In US Associated Press ^ | April 14, 2009
Growing numbers of children of illegal immigrants are being born in this country, and they are nearly twice as likely to live in poverty than those with American-born parents...
Overall, illegal immigrants’ children account for one of every 15 students in kindergarten through 12th grade. In 2008, California had the most illegal immigrants at 2.7 million, double its 1990 number, followed by Texas, Florida, New York and New Jersey.
“In the next eight years, the violent collection of criminal drug cartels could overwhelm the state and establish de facto control over broad regions of northern Mexico,” McCaffreys report said. “A failure by the Mexican political system to curtail lawlessness and violence could result in a surge of millions of refugees crossing the U.S. border.”
