Pretty much spot on from my perspective.
If we do not, as a people, begin moving in those directions soon...there is going to be hell to pay. In many areas, there already is.
We need immigrants in out country...legal, hardworking immigrants who come here to work, become Americans and adopt our values and moral standards that allow for freedom. We always have...it is how we started...it continually refreshes us and builds our strength.
But we do not need those coming looking for a handout, or leeches...or worse. The current system and lack of inforcement of legal immigration practise literally invites the latter in.
I am afraid that unless we get control of this soon, we will be voerwhelmed by all of those negatives and it will lead to very bad places.
Uh, no we don't. We need to stop telling Americans that they are "overpopulating" the country, so go get an abortion, little girl.
If abortion and the destruction of the family at the hands of the cultural Marxists had been defeated, the United States would have grown to its present population without the need for immigration.
42% of hispanic births are now to unwed mother and welfare rates along the Mexican border are 50% in many counties. I don't distinguish too much between legal and illegal --- because here all it takes is to make it over the border to give birth, apply for welfare and the baby is legal, the mother gets to stay being the relative of a US citizen. These kinds have no intentions of ever working in this country and their kids end up on the streets and in gangs. I'll take the hard-working illegals who leave their kids back in Mexico any day over the moochers that bring their kids here for the US taxpayer to provide for. Education and health care are far cheaper for Mexicans in Mexico.
America cannot continue to absorb an increasing number of immigrants year after year after year. There comes a point where we are maxed out, where we cannot assimilate any more immigrants.
If we fail to heed this truth, then American culture, along with the English language in America, will cease to exist.
I work in a city in New Jersey, and already I cannot find anyone who speaks English for blocks and blocks on end. They are nearly all Hispanic, from Guatamala, Mexico, etc., living 12 people to a house, nearly all illegal.
Police have to hire special translators just to handle all the crime, and it's no secret that there is an extraordinarily high crime rate in those neighborhoods.
While we may need some minimal immigrant influx, we certainly don't need to be flooded.
My philosphy is live and let live, but I dont want my children and grandchildren having to fight a revolution when the militant immigrant population gets so big, it wants to take over control.
