Immigrants make America great

I'd take any person who wants to live and contribute to a better America for all over feeble-minded bigots who blame everyone but themselves for their situation in life.

 

There is nothing wrong with a strong immigration policy. Considering it can take 2 years to become a citizen, I believe there should be some leniency towards people who are in the process of completing their documentation and working full time. Criminal records should also be reviewed.

 

There are a lot of things than can be done to make the immigration process better, but wasting money building a pointless wall isn't one of them.

As someone born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, an imposing wall is exactly what I want.  There are good Mexicans and bad Mexicans, good Americans and bad Americans.  I don't judge a man's will and I don't blame him for wanting to prosper.  However, illegal aliens are - illegal! 
 
I'm tired of hearing about separated families.  The grasshoppers took that risk when they ran for the border.  I'm exhausted from the insulting conflation that occurs between illegal immigrants/aliens and immigrants by lawyers and politicians.  I'm not alone.
 
We're tired of losing good Americans like Kate Steinle to lowlifes that are here illegally like cockroach Zarate or whatever his name is.  We want an imposing wall that sends a message along the lines of, 'Keep Out' to potential aliens.

Nazi Tom Purcell sez: We want an imposing wall that sends a message along the lines of, 'Keep Out' to potential aliens.-on on side"Keep Out" on the US side "Keep In".  Trump's wall is to keep Americans from fleeing, keeping "them" out?  For people like you, I'm sure...

Lol.  Fleeing, huh?  Why - do you expect taxpayers will get pissed off about the improved economy?

I'm all for legal immigration, but the illegals need to be kept out.  A nation that doesn't protect its borders is not a nation.  The wall could pay for itself in the long run.

Trump is a German immigrant. NOBODY in the US can trace back his roots for more than 300 years.
 
Only native Americans.
 
But they are apatheided ever since.
 
So get off that immigrant shit. Either everybody can come or most have to leave. An official immigration paper does NOT guarantee if the person is not a criminal....

BTW:
 
I understand when you limit your immigration quota. Seems that Trump opens national reserves for fracking and exploitation so healthy environment to live in will become scarce ;-)
 
Try to dig up a natural reserve here in Europe. They will kill you. But you're doing that and think it's a good thing...

Wow. It has begun. We only sigh and think: The US has completely gone mad. It is the water or Monsanto ?

Well, census records do show that the first Purcell was here in the late 1600s.  Hah, I win.

"I'd take any person who wants to live and contribute to a better America for all over feeble-minded bigots who blame everyone but themselves for their situation in life." Man, if only the Department of State, ICE, Army, Marines and Congress thought like that, 'cause sure as hell I tried to join the US military when you guys were losing trillions of dollars and thousands of lives, only to be told (by a US Army contracting firm tasked with responding to such queries addressed TO the US Army), "you have to either be a US citizen or legal resident who has resided at least five years in the US to join the armed forces", or so I remember the reply. The French are smarter in that regard- they created the Foreign Legion way back in 1831, and legionnaires earn the right to citizenship after three years in the Legion! Now, when is the good ole US of A gonna learn that, considering it used to offer Irishmen just off the boat American citizenship for themselves AND their families if they served ONE year during the Civil War?

@ Negres. "Now, when is the good ole US of A gonna learn that, considering it used to offer Irishmen just off the boat American citizenship for themselves AND their families if they served ONE year during the Civil War?"
 
Thanks for the history. The Irish went on to control the police and fire in NY. They did a job to keep other immigrants down,

Walls do work and are being built worldwide. I find it interesting that no one condemns Turkey's wall being built to stop terrorists from Iran, dozens of nations building walls to stop economic migrants, Islamic terrorists, and general refugees.

World of walls: How 65 countries have erected fences on their borders – four times as many as when the Berlin Wall was toppled – as governments try to hold back the tide of migrants
