I get to be FIRST!!! Immigrants don't threaten me, but they do hold down the wages at the bottom. If we didn't have so many illegals the minimum wage would be much higher. Employers would have to pay more to get the job done. Americans would do the job if it paid better.

All Americans or their ancestors were immigrants once, including native Americans. In general, immigrants do more good than bad and multiculturalism benefits everyone. However, Immigration can not be totally unrestricted either, I am for commonsense immigration policy and for giving priority to refugees.

no...they don't bother me. the affirmative action programs for them do, though.

No.

Sometimes, yes.

no, but damnit, they should learn to speak english. if i moved to a non english speaking country, i would learn the native tongue. and yes, i know america has no "official" language, but i am so sick of seeing business and street signs in spanish or korean, with small print, barely visible english translations underneath.
sorry for going off on a rambling, somewhat off-topic tangent.

Not at all

No, and drivingtena, English is one of the HARDEST languages to learn. With so many exceptions and rules, it makes other languages a breeze. Besides, other countries are already making it almost mandatory to learn English, no matter which country they are from.

I agree

Legal immigrants, no. Illegal immigrants, yes.

I think we have plenty of space for people in the U.S., but it's hard enough to find a decent job as it is. I'm really torn about this one.

Only if they're illegal immigrants
16 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 7/19/05 - 11:58:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, not if they're in their OWN F*CKING COUNTRY
16 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 7/20/05 - 12:00:29 AM EST (GMT-5)
No. Australia sends most of them straight into detention then back where they came from anyway.
16 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 7/24/05 - 2:06:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
no... not really
16 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 7/25/05 - 7:21:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
it lifts my spirits

If they're legal, then fine. What I hate is them coming in illegally, and then getting benefits.
16 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 8/14/05 - 12:49:59 AM EST (GMT-5)
Just as long as they speak english. I hate it when they're in their little clicks over there speaking whatever, cause it seems they're always talking trash . That was alot the they're's
16 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 8/14/05 - 2:04:13 AM EST (GMT-5)
They should be legal, and we should take care that they don't harm the quality of life for those already here by taking jobs away or causing population growth beyond the infrastructure.
16 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 8/14/05 - 2:06:16 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'm an immigrant dammit.
16 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 8/15/05 - 6:29:22 AM EST (GMT-5)
hell no! most of the immigrants i know are fairly good looking which makes me sound a little one-track minded but i am not really.
16 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 8/16/05 - 7:14:08 AM EST (GMT-5)
I have never had an issue with sincere people who come to this country and follow the laws. If the first thing an immigrant does is break the law, they obviously have no respect for my country and by extension no respect for me. It also sets a precedent, if somebody breaks one law, why should they care about the rest? 90% of warrants for arrest for homicide in Los Angeles are for illegal immigrants. All illegal immigrants should be deported. Period.

Yes, if they're terrorists or entering here illegally and signing on to government funds and not contributing anything to the economy. (This is a big problem in the UK.)
