Picture of all of the best and brightest coming from Central America inside
We need more of these engineers, scientists, and doctors coming into the US. In fact we are in such desperate need of the skill set these people have that they are willing to sacrifice their own life in order to come and help us MAGA!

You people better wake up. I need a cardiologist and he may have been in that truck that was stopped.

We are killing our selves by not accepting these people’s generosity in coming here.

quote:

Three hundred U.S.-bound Central Americans migrants, including dozens of children, were found over the weekend inside two trucks in Mexico without proper ventilation or enough food or water.

Some, I assume, are good people.

re: Picture of all of the best and brightest coming from Central America inside
Despite what Trump and the jingoist have told you, the American economy is stronger with immigration than without.

LINK

quote:

Labor Force Growth: If those who oppose immigration were correct, then Japan, an immigrant-unfriendly country, should be an economic juggernaut. It is not. Japan is facing an economic and demographic crisis. “Japan has the world’s oldest population, as well as a low birth rate and little immigration, but its growth problems go far deeper,” noted a recent analysis by Bloomberg. “In the early 1990s, the country’s postwar growth boom collapsed – decades of deflation followed and Japan started to suffer a shortage of workers.”


quote:

Entrepreneurship: “The contribution of immigrants to human and physical capital formation, entrepreneurship, and innovation are essential to long-run sustained economic growth,” according to the NAS report.


quote:

Human Capital: A similar story can be seen with patents and human capital. “Perhaps even more important than the contribution to labor supply is the infusion by high-skilled immigration of human capital that has boosted the nation’s capacity for innovation and technological change,” reported the National Academy of Sciences. But again, no dollar figure is estimated for this benefit. University of Colorado economist Keith Maskus found that for every 100 international students who earn science or engineering Ph.D.'s from American universities, the nation gains an impressive 62 future patent applications.

The bottom line conclusion: “Innovation carried out by immigrants also has the potential to increase the productivity of natives, very likely raising economic growth per capita,” according to the National Academy of Sciences. “In short, the prospects for long run economic growth in the United States would be considerably dimmed without the contributions of high-skilled immigrants.”


Our workforce is aging. Americans are not having children at a rate that sustains growth for the workforce. We need immigration. You don't like the brown people coming over? Fine. I'd suggest having 10 kids.

I don’t.

Blame their parents for having unprotected sex and bringing them into their world of misery, despair, and poverty. If you can’t take care of them don’t have them.

Words I’ve lived by in deciding to only have 2 kids.

Not my fault their parents didn’t practice the same.

You see a bunch of Rhode scholars in there? These are not people from industrialized nations trying to immigrate and start businesses. These are highly unskilled individuals that offer nothing more than the ability to do manual labor

There is a such thing as good immigration and bad.

This would be an example of bad.

I would feel the same if thousands of Europe’s lower class decided to hop on ships and put up shop over here.

The poem people like you hold onto does not apply in 2018.

I have no issue with any one saying we need to get immigration under control and I have no issue with suggestions of a merit-based system.

That said, you don’t know what any one is going to amount to just by looking at them.

LEGAL...INTELLIGENT (the immigration planning...not the immigrant necessarily)....DOCUMENTED immigration.


Why is this so difficult to grasp?


If we need a kabillion folks....let's get a kabillion DOCUMENTED, LEGAL folks.

Oh yes tell me what the 25 yr old Pacos in that truck are going to do here? They are coming from Central America wherein they have had little to NO education or technical job training and they also do not even speak the language of the nation they are trying to sneak into.

I wonder why all of these people risk their lives to get away from the non-shitholes they used to live in.

There are a LOT of things that "used to happen" that we no longer allow to happen.


I, for one, am very happy with the "progress".

200+ years ago when the nation had a minuscule of the population and it needed bodies.


Last I checked the US has 330 million people. How many more do we need?

The inn is full for the huddled poor masses that need bread, housing, healthcare, and education for their offspring that they apparently have an insatiable appetite to produce in mass quantities.

Holy frick. Why do I have to explain economics to people?


In a free market you exchange goods, services, and PEOPLE. If you restrict or hinder any of those components, you no longer have a free market and you're no longer operating efficiently. The market will dictate whether or not it needs doctors, engineers, or tomato pickers. I trust the free market to decide those levels over you.

The countries that restrict their immigration to engineers, doctors, etc, etc aren't the world's leading economic power. Why would you want to adopt those protectionist, socialist economic policies?

My wife and I were both born in the Caribbean. We make a combined income of 300k and we are in our early 30s. You might have taken a look at us and said “no thanks.” Here we are.
