The only objections to this course that I can see are "unfairness" to would-be immigrants waiting patiently in the immigration queue--and I do not think the interests of foreigners should weigh heavily in U.S. public policyFor the purposes of the present debate, when you say you do not think that the interests of foreigners should carry much weight in determining U.S. immigration policy, are you considering the illegal immigrants currently present in the United States as foreigners? If the illegales are deemed foreigners (as aurely they are), should our policy be formulated in terms of our interests not theirs?

What I can't quite understand is why - in this post and your previous post - it almost seems that you have more respect and concern for the illegales than for those who immigrated legally. I apologize if this inference is incorrect, but that seems the natural inference to draw.

Hans Gruber

"He supports increased immigration because this correction of the presently distorted labor market will likely benefit U.S. citizens."

Why is the current wave of illegals without high school educations a "correction of the presently distorted labor market"? As I said in my last post, we need more high school drop outs digging ditches, but we don't need more nurses, computer programmers, engineers, or doctors? How could anybody in their right mind believe such nonsense?

George Weinbaum

No amnesty. Period. I opposed the 1986 amnesty believing it would only encourage more illegal aliens. If the best we can do is throw our say, 2 million a year, fine. It will take us six years to deport them all. We do not need illegal aliens here with questionable loyalty to the US. We have enough welfare recipients as it is. Throw them out.
