I've quoted you numerous times. Another horrible reply. All you are doing is citing PBN catch phrases
Dude, the guy you quoted is making all sorts of horse**** statements. I could just as easily make a "study" and toss my name on it like this guy
"If I have a cousin in Ireland who wants to move into my home in the United States, they would say that he should not be allowed to because he might be a burden to other taxpayers."
False. We're saying he cannot just move in because you need to prove you can speak English and apply for citizenship. The United States isn't the only country in the world, nor is it open for the entire planet to just move in because THEY feel like moving here. Not how it works.
"The right to immigration is the right of existing American property owners to freely associate by employing people on their property or renting or selling their property to people born in other countries. Immigration restrictions attenuate those property rights"
This article is apparently where you get your beliefs, Bill. They're still wrong too. You do NOT have the right to bring anyone you want from another country to live in your house. You do NOT have that right. How many times do you need to hear this? This country has limits on how many people can live here, and you think you have all these rights to do what you want while here. You don't.
Go brush up on law. Moreover, these people you want to bring in - many do not know English. That's a safety problem.
Here's a gem from your own article
"Even though the vast majority of immigrants come to the United States to work, it is likely true that completely open borders would result in a tremendous drain on the welfare state
They abuse welfare. By not having control over the border, as many people as you claim come here for "work and peaceful purposes" it doesn't mean Mexican criminals aren't crossing the border.
"The federal government has taken some steps to reimburse states for some of the costs associated with criminal illegal aliens"
aka - illegal aliens cost. Court costs to "defend" them, house them, feed them, etc. Clearly, criminals are the end result of many illegal aliens, unless you want to come out and declare "illegal aliens don't cause trouble and don't go to jail". You leave the border open, you cannot determine who comes into the country, and you cannot weed out the scumbags that Mexico gladly drops off on us.
"What about the immigrants who do commit crimes? Many people advocate restricting immigration because of the threat that some immigrants may commit crimes. But why restrict, just to prevent the potential crimes of a few, the vast majority who want to work?"
This statement is very telling. It tells me Mr Powell is willing to deal with criminals because some people want work. Since when is it the responsibility of the United States to supply Mexicans and other illegals with work? Can you site where that law is written? Spare me the passage after what I quoted, I saw it. Fact remains, he is quite willing to sacrifice in order to satisfy the illegals. I wonder hoe he would feel if his family was on the receiving end of a rape and murder from some illegals.
This is the United States Bill. Our duty is to take care of our own citizens, not Mexico. If you have a passion for Mexican people, you are free to move there. Here in the United States, we need to worry bout the jobs and Sovereignty of American citizens, not Mexican ones.
Four months going now, and you still fail to grasp this. If you aren't trolling (and we both know you are) then you're lost if you continue to approach this argument from a "THEY HELP OUR ECONOMY! WE NEED THEM" point of view.
We "need" illegal aliens like we "need" slaves. The south allowed itself to become overly dependent on slaves was why they "needed' them. That's what certain people have done, allow parts of the country to "need" these illegals. It's a laughable, false, joke reality that people such as this guy and yourself have been trying to bull**** people into believing, much like the southern leaders did to the citizens back in the 1800's. And because you're as predictable as you are unemployed, this isn't comparing slavery to illegal aliens. You know it too, so save that nonsense.....unless you're trying to troll.
I eagerly await your "been there, done that" reply, as well as less than objective partisan hack commentary from your little gang.
