"Many work for a pittance, send their money back home and live in squalor. That's sweat shop stuff right there. The visa program is abused but pet projects and political contributors all the time. It's not being used as intended."
So by that logic you shouldn't be allowed to reside in the US if say your parents wanted to retire in France and you continiously send them money?
And you shouldn't be allowed to reside in the US if you spend tons of money on vacations abroad?
I see what you're saying but I think that's harsh
You are mistaken if you think I care about your opinion. The fact that you believe your opinion is important tells me all I need to know. You are incapable of making the hard choices because you've been taught that feelings are critically important, even more important than logic.
I'm currently sitting on the sidelines of history waiting for all you bleeding hearts to commit national suicide so we can rebuild it in the fashion of the founding fathers. Don't mistake my inaction and levity for indifference.
"The money has been a lifeline for the national economies of many countries"
Sounds like a pretty good thing to be honest. I realize that it's money leaving the country, but still. If they can save a countries national economy by sending money there that they have rightfully earned, that's fine by me.
Anyway - I'll try to get back to my actual point again. Could you get me some stats as to how much money goes to Denmark? Sweden? Norway? Finland? Iceland? Even to Germany, France, Italy etc. I believe it is very limited. So what I take issue with is that now, seemingly, the POTUS want's to stop practially every visa if he had it his way. Why not let people from these countries in?
Matter of fact why not let people immigrate legally, even from Mexico, if they can prove that they can provide for themselves? What is not mentioned in that report (or at least your snippet" is that they occupy many jobs that "Americans" do not want. Banning them all would leave people like your friend or your sister to clean the bathrooms at the local high school.
We don't we have people willing to do those jobs, really? We might not today -because we have an entire class of uneducated people that are making a living by doing nothing. Welfare kings and queens should be doing those jobs, but instead are stealing from the public treasury with able bodied sloth. Remove those people from the welfare rolls and those jobs will be sought after. I went to a school where the students cleaned the rest rooms, cafeteria and grounds on a rotating basis by age. The only thing hired out was cutting grass and bus drivers. The culture of excess and self importance has ruined the value of honest work. You yourself are slighting the idea of janitorial work for your family because you are an elitist jerk that has more than likely never done an honest day's labor in their life. One of the guys at the place I'm working at now has been a janitor for almost 40 years. He's put 3 kids through college and has done well by living below his means and working hard. He knows a new BMW is never going to be in his future, but he is far more wealthy in the knowledge of his accomplishments than in material possessions. The man's a quiet hero and you are personally discrediting his lifetime of labor. Get over yourself.
It's time for immigration militias.
Not quite yet. There's still plenty of time once the economy hits rock bottom again and the fed has no parachutes left. The bleeding hearts can feed the invaders from their own pantries then too. Not like they will have a choice when the ferals no longer need to act polite to stay here and start turning their neighborhoods into the 3rd world shitholes they invaded from.
I've got a great idea! let's incorporate millions of uneducated people into our society that have left their own homes to the wolves instead of fighting for their birthright. Let's let them decide the fate or our nation and let them live here without paying taxes or spending that money here. They have families to pay for back home, where they left them behind to be slaughtered.
If people can't see the futility of this type of thinking, they deserve what is coming. Us.
