The First world makes it hard for every other first world citizen to relocate to their countries. You would have the same hard time moving to Germany your friend had moving here. It is silly but not just a US Government issue.
Not Really..Us citizens can move to the more developed parts of europe and earn legal citizenship alot easier than they can come here. Late time I checked, US immigration policy mandated only 15% of legal immigration can come from Europe.
Well I am speaking about the Old EU, like Germany, Austria, France the UK not the new less developed members who are looking US dollars to invest there.
That's the point. The Old EU citizens have to jump threw more hoops to get here. We make it harder on them then other regions. We should be looking at the inidividal and what they offer the country. The last thing the US needs is more dependents.
A lot of the people come from other parts of the world are refugees or have some sort of hardship status, you know those yearning to be free, many running for their lives.
Underwstood, but we're ar not in a fiscal postion to take in everyone anymore. This is not the early 1900's. This country is fully developed and needs to weed people out that will help us fiscally, not drain us. There just aren't enough reources.
You can't assume all non Europeans entering are a drain on the resources, in fact the help they receive is limited to a short time period and most of them find jobs. I know we have a problem but we can lay it all on the back of immigrants.
I don't assume that. I jsut want us to be more strict about who we take in and what they offer before they get here no matter were there from. INS policy should target the economic needs of the nation. Not who you can pander to for votes.
I agree! their do need to be changes unfortunately the whole first world is facing ever increasing refugee numbers... so maybe we should become part of the solution to decrease those numbers.
I just don't see why the US, which borrows 40 cents on every dollar should be the ones responsible for everyone else's problems. There just isn't enough money in existence to pay for all the things we promise our own citizens as it is.
You say " You just classifed an entire race of people as being majority racist" I think you're over reacting. I said "so many" white people. If you think "so many" means an entire race of people. You have a problem my friend
Our foreign policy has contributed to the refugee problem as has Europe. Most of these places are rich in oil, precious minerals and other goods but how many own them? That is why we have to think globally, what one country does effects others.
I'd disagree. They've done quite well from selling these natural resources to us. The US taxpayer spends billions of dollars annually to foreign nations that deplete our wealth, not the other way around.
