That's a good point. I don't think that loving your culture, traditions, language, etc, is hatred or racism. It's when someone argues that someone different from them is somehow inferior and has no right to be alive that it's racism, prejudice, etc. I really wish more conservatives would understand the difference. That way they would be better at doing battle with liberals and RINOs who try to pin a label on them that isn't true.

But furthermore, why should whites from Europe be barred from entering the country as immigrants as they largely are now? Hey if they have something to offer, or love this country and want to be a part of it, why should their skin color keep them out? Arguing that things are better if there less white ( if that is what you are doing, I'm not accusing here!) would have to mean that a place like Haiti must be close to being Shangr-la Again, I'm just saying........

Regardless of whether or not they hire family members we should really think hard about the long term consequences of constantly increasing the over all size of our population. I'm not a global warming alarmist, but I wonder if we will reach a point due to overpopulation that will make it impossible to get back to a high quality way of life in this country.

Well, I wouldn't say that a nation that does not change soon begins to die. There have been countries and civilzations that have lasted hundreds if not thousands of years without drastic - and unnecessary- demographic changes. But all civilzations end one day regardless of forced change or not. Beyond that China, India, Brazil,etc., are all doing fine without massive amounts of immigration. I'm just saying......

Because there is only so far the wealth of the US will go when it's spread out amongst all the millions of people who want to move here. These continued policies will bring all of us down eventually.

So if someone robs a bank and gives some of the money to their kids then the cops shouldn't take the money back becaue it would be punishing the children.

I think many people fail to realize the overall negative consequences for this unchecked population growth. And, let's face it, all of our population growth is due to too much immigration. Besides the environmental problems it may very well prove to be impossible to get back to the quality of life that past generations of americans have enjoyed.

"The first meaningful restrictions were aimed at the Chinese and later other Asians and Southern and Eastern Europeans. These laws were intended to keep out certain people on the basis of race, ethnicity, and religion -- a repugnant policy that would be inconceivable today. " Okay-if we are going to have an honest debate about this issue I believe one of the first points of order would be to be honest about the facts. Virtually ALL Europeans are ristricted from entering the US due to the quota system that Ted Kennedy set up in 1965 and which the public allowed to continue. And it's the over the top family reunification laws for both legal and illegal immigrants which allows the situation to continue.
