P.S. - I'm against selecting immigrants on the basis of cultural bias. Allowing only white Christians, for example.

We mostly agree on immigration. I think there is very little harm in letting in high quality Muslims, because they are in my experience no more Muslim then most Americans are Christian. They have better things to do then go on a jihad.

I do not think that anyone who thinks it is okay to treat women or children abhorrently should be allowed in the US. Some cultures are based on treating women poorly and members of those cultures should be prohibited from entry.

The vote has nothing to do with what happened in the past 5 years. It was a vote to effect what might happen in future years.

This nation was built by settlers, people who came over and worked the land and built the place into what it is. No one walked off a boat in the 1600s with their hands out expecting to be taken care of and to exploit the systems already in place, they built the systems and built this place with their own hands so that they and their ancestors could have a better life. During the very first session of the U.S congress they passed immigration control. This country was not built by immigrants, it was built by settlers.

It was built by immigrants. People have hated the immigrant class since time immemorial. The Italians were denigrated, the Irish were treated worse than the freed slaves, the Germans, Hispanics, Chinese and the list goes on.

Today most people that hate immigrants in fact hate the welfare state. Get rid of the welfare state and the quality of immigrants will go up.

I think the difference in a hundred years ago and now is that then they came here to start a new life and work and build. What we are seeing today is they are coming alright, but instead of coming to fit in, they are bringing their customs to change it here to be like where they come from, which caused the very reason they are wanting a new clean place to start the same old cycle over again. They have no intention to change even their language, so why should Tomahawker have to not only be squeezed a little more but also have to learn their language, they are the foreigners not him.

Well your immigrant ancestors didn't become Indians did they?They didn't fit in either.

Exactly, it didn't work well for the Indians and it won't work well for us. If the Indians could see into the future they would of banded together and kept Europeans out, someday we will look back on a country we don't recognize and say the same.

There's this extremely stupid, self hating belief that many people of Western European descent now have, that all cultures are equally good, with the same value. It is not true. Most of what makes living great, comes from people of Western European descent and other people who have adopted their culture. I know many people will consider that racist and hate speech, but that does not make it untrue.

People of other cultures, who adopt Western European ideals also do well. It doesn't matter so much what race you are. What matters is what you believe and do. The problem is that other cultures stifle creativity, productivity and motivation.

Well actually they sort of did become one. If you mix some Ute and some European you get me. And 3 of my great+++++grandfathers fought in the Revolutionary War for the America we have known at least up til now!

I thought immigrants were different than refugees? The gubmint don't pay to ship immigrants here and resettle them, do they? As an immigrant to Alaska, I had to get myself here, and get some employment. I was homeless for awhile until I got myself on my feet. Now I live more like the Indians than most of them do. blush

Iím glad you feel that way. By all means have them build right next to you. When there is enough you can get a new Wal Mart and McDonaldís along with them. I want fruited plains purple mountains majesty and elbow room. At some point... there will be too many people-even for you.

Omar is the poster child for unlimited intake of refugee and flooding areas to gain control of a district or State. All about the power and nothing to do with helping anyone but the people pushing the idea at any cost.


Was born in a Big City Will die in the Country OK with that!

Not an immigrant. When the danger ( if there really is any )is over, refugees should go back?

The district that Omar represents is predominately white and it wouldn't surprise me if there is more registered Jewish voters in that district than Muslim.

Whomever gets the Democratic endorsement in that district will win, some Democrat in that district needs to grow a set and run against her.
