"While immigration is certainly good for America..."
Any writer, pundit, etc. writing about immigration has to put that qualifier in there somewhere. Every time. What they ought to say is that while immigration was, at one point in this country, a source of strength, it is now only a source of strife. To even imagine that letting in millions of poverty stricken third-worlders is going to somehow benefit our country is delusional beyond belief. The astronomical cost in social welfare, education, health, and social harmony are almost beyond calculation. At this point in our history, with the economy in the tank wouldn't it behoove us as a country to temporarily stop all immigration for a few years?
