    The problem isn't that immigrants take the jobs of relatively low educated Americans, but rather there are Americans that lack even the modicum of education needed to outcompete a poorly educated non-English speaker.

    Meanwhile, every fast-food restaurant in the state of Iowa is desperately advertising for workers at $12 an hour.
    I'm guessing that's pretty much everywhere. Pennsylvania has hiring signs everywhere I was surprised at the amount.

    As I have said before I don't care who immigrates to this country as long as it's Legal it's ILLEGAL immigration I have a problem with. You always seem to ignore the ILLEGAL part of immigration. How are the Mexicans, Polish, and Irish ruining this country if they are here LEGALLY there's that word again.
    That is what you are saying now. That is not what you have always said.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    That is what I have always said but we have the world according to Chris. Arguing is futile.

    Goodnight.

    I would think he'd recognize and applaud the fact that people from these countries who come here and want to stay had and have the gumption to want to improve their lives.

    The "shithole" comment doesn't bother me, since plenty of places are shitholes, but why we wouldn't take immigrants from those places makes the statement a problem. And of course its compounded by Trump saying he wants more immigrants from Norway and whatnot. So its fairly clear what he's getting at.

    Anyway, this guy was an immigrant from a shithole. May he rest in peace.

    And I just remembered that I have two cousins from that "shithole" Haiti. I'm grateful to their adopted mom (my wife's aunt) for bringing them here. Both are productive, decent citizens. Neither of them could pass for Norwegians.

    Just when you're hoping he's gonna pull through, he goes and does something so asinine it defies belief.
