Immigration has made the US what it is today and is great for the country.
Supporting millions of people "squatting" in the country illegally, not so much.
Absolutely agreed wilderness. As an immigrant here I worked extremely hard to adapt culture and reach success. It was far from the free ride and I absolutely resent anyone who comes here with intentions of living off of this country's citizens and resources
I agree with your statement...except for the "resent" part.
I don't hold on to indignation because I do not want to be bitter.

What do you think of (legal) immigrants to your country?Do you welcome them (in your own mind)? or do you wish they went back to where they came from. I'm not talking about illegals, or refugees.
