A few of our left wing buddies start shouting about people being a racist when they show a concern about the levels of immigration. Is immigration a question of race or a question of numbers?

I completely agree. I also think demonizing immigrants is a way to take attention off of other people plundering this countries wealth, but that's another subject.
Everybody should be concerned about immigration, the more that come the more diluted the
resources become. Believe me its happening now in the UK.
If they got the robber, but they keep stopping every "redhead in a car", then is profiling. You have obvious prejudice against them. Being middle eastern does not mean "hate and crime".
No. I am not prejudice. But there are large cells of terrorists in the Middle Eastern culture. Therefore they have not been all caught.
AMEN, AMEN, AMEN!
I don't think we can say that racism is the primary reason some are anti-immigration. Though in many cases it may be true. I believe that the reason is more related to fear, closed mindednes and not being able to love their neighbors as themselves.
Or maybe some of us are concerned with the enormous fiscal burden being placed on our entitlement structure that is already racing towards insolvency.
I love my neighbours but that doesn't mean they have to live in my back garden and partake of my fruits.
Yeah, but apparently some of the clowns in DC feel differently. They love to spend other peoples money.
I know there's limited space here and it's hard to fully comment. I don't quite understand the last 2 comments though. What do they have to do w/ immigration? For instance, more Americans are sucking the economy dry than immigrants. Just clarify plz.
The border states are overrun with people utilizing social services such has Medicaid. They are a huge drain on State and Federal Budgets. Particularly Mexico which has a very poor totalization agreement with the US on Social Security.
Johnsonrallen, if your children were sucking you dry that would be OK right? What about if your neighbours children were sucking you dry too and your children where then going without because of it?
I understand your point, Silverspeeder. I think it can apply just as much to Americans though. I think there are more "born and raised here" Americans that we're taking care of than immigrants.
THANK YOU FOR THIS PROFOUND RESPONSE!
What you have succinctly and eloquently stated is so true!
I agree with what you said. But the last question - well, preventing "risk" immigrants or visitors, for that matter, I am against. The FBI knows who the risks are and yet, they are allowed in. I'm NOT for that.
Totally true. Since my wife went through the visa and citizenship process, I know for a fact the most important factor is whether you have the cash or not.
Agree with you a mulltillion percent!
