There’s a difference between immigrants and economic migrants with no skills. That ought to get the ball rolling. ;-}
Then why have border controls at all ? Or are only Mexicans welcome ? And where would poor illegal immigrant have cash or credit to build a buisiness. Those belong to legal immigrants !
What an apt cartoon for today!
From the immigrants point of view, they have better chances there than in their own countries… and that’s been true since the first english people arrived…
All were immigrants at some point. (Yes even “native Americans”. They were just first.)
With the number of replies to ‘Prescott_Philosopher’ it appears the discussion has already started and my comment would be of no contribution ! ! !
The immigrants will do jobs the American’s will not, the back breaking work in crops. I should include as roofers, I see more immigrants working manual labor jobs.
In my home town, a farming community, people complained about the “Mexicans” until their jobs were offered to us. I did farm labor as a kid but I couldn’t keep up with the “Mexicans”. Glad to have them. Somehow they saved money to take home in the winter.
This country was built and maintained by the under-payed back-breaking labor of immigrants. Your own grandfather’s and grandmother’s labor, your own ancestors worked their butts off to build a future for their descendants, for you, to have a chance at their dream of a full, happy, prosperous life. A life lived without fear of secret police and midnight invasions of their homes … looks like we still have a long way to go to live up to their dreams.
This doesn’t seem like Evie at all. In the future she volunteers in the Peace Corp.
we’re all immigrants
Prescott_Philosopher: I am with you on that100%
So many trolls today…
There is a big difference between immigrants that come here legally and those that don’t. They should not be lumped together.
