Immigration

As we look at our own history in America, we also are facing a massive debate on how immigration should be handled. There's been huge outcry about why the National Guard hasn't been called to the border with rising illegal immigration become a sore subject. The White House is under fire for doing too much, doing not enough and somewhere in between.

What is your thoughts on immigration?

I personally think our laws are too strict. We are a nation of immigrants. We should be doing what we can to bring people in safely.

    If it wasn't for immigration 90% of americans wouldn't be here and there'd be more indian reservations.

      While what you say is true, it is such a touchy issue and so many facets to weigh and consider. I just don't know. I'm a legal resident alien and I had to jump through many hoops to get here even after marrying my husband. I don't like it when people slip in illegally when I had to go through so much to live here, like prove our marriage was real and not just so I could live here.

        thank you for the great topick, Melissa!
        I know alot of immigrants... Some of them assimilated good and they are more americans then anyone - some didnt, and miss motherland... It totally depends on people who'll they bocome after changing all life.
        I also know that EU has alot of problems with imigrants from East.
        So I dont think the laws are too strict - but from other side, how can we guess, who will be new star of America?

          we are immigrants too. My parents went through a whole bunch of paperwork, stress and money amount seeking a better life for us, their children. My husband is from Ukraine and his family came to America as refugee. His dad spent 10 years in a jail in Ukraine because he proclaimed that he believes in Jesus Christ. America gives him freedom in his religion and nice retirement, even though he never worked here. I love America with all my heart and my soul.
          about illegal immigrants- I understand that they are trying to come here to have a better life, but in other hands they are agree to work for lower wages and legal immigrants are struggling to find work.
