  • تم نشره في 2019/05/16
  • President Trump unveiled his administration’s proposal to increase security at the southern border and change the nation’s immigration laws. The proposal included a merit-based system that would favor high-skilled workers. "No matter where in the world you're born, no matter who your relatives are, if you want to become an American citizen it will be clear exactly what standard we ask you to achieve. It will be made crystal clear." Full video here: cs.pn/2LPbpnv

    The thing is, Mexicans who are educated and highly skilled are doing just fine in Mexico. They don’t want to come here! The Mexicans who are rushing in are the underclass ones who don’t have anything in Mexico!

    Trump should invite DACA to the WH without Democrats and deal with them directly. He should offer them immediate citizenship in exchange for only one caveat. They cannot vote for 10 additional years. If American newborns have to wait 18 years to vote then DACA as Americans can wait at least 10. This is required because Republicans know that the Democrats are pushing DACA only to garner their votes and that type of usage of people only to achieve their political goals will never be allowed in America.

    This is so hypocritical! Trying to force standards on others his wife nor some of her/his family met prior to coming to the U.S. I am reminded in Acts of the Apostles that they didnt put requirements on the Christians that neither they or their Jewish forefathers had met. Straight Hypocrisy!

    Being born a citizen of any given nation is barbaric. Citizenship should be a matter of contract. That is the only way to guarantee any individual's rights and limit the power of any government. The Constitution of the United States was a very good try, but it has been shown to have come up short insofar as the rights of individuals go.

    • Manuel Garcia

      @Josh S. You would not be confused had your teachers told you the truth about the American Constitution. The original intent of the Constitution was to form a central government to handle all the things that each State hand interest in, foreign affairs, national debt and what have you. The central government was to have very limited number of powers, all which are listed in Article 1 Section 8. If an element of the Federal Government is not listed in Article 1 Section 8, then Congress was never authorized to establish or fund it.

      The States, you see, were being treated as sovereign nations by the Constitution. So, whenever I use the word "State" you can substitute the word "nation." They are essentially the same.

      Manuel Garcia, do you mean a contract for a state or nation, I’m confused

    • Manuel Garcia
      Manuel Garcia 25 أيام قبل

      @Josh S. If the individual wants to be a part of a given State, then the State should require him to sign a contract. Otherwise, the State has no real hold on its citizens. The idea of abiding by a "social contract" is just a ship load of BS. Being born in the jurisdiction of at best grants only partial citizenship -- the citizenship of a child. But once a child has grown up and has become educated, it is then time for the adult to make a choice. Stay with the State he was born in, or refuse and then go find another State to be a citizen of.

      Do you claim to be a citizen of the United States?

    • Josh S.
      Josh S. 25 أيام قبل

      Manuel Garcia, so every citizen should have their own contract to give to a nation that each have to sign?

    Immigration policy does not mean the USA will not have to take in refugees and accept legitimate asylum seekers. All countries have variable immigration policies that focus on employment status, education and skills. But all countries signed up to the UN treaty on refugees have to take in people outside of those categories. Therefore, the USA will still have to accept people who don’t speak English or have financial backing.

    This sounds great, but have no doubt, this would be a giant winfall for corporations and absolutely devastating to American workers, dependant upon what limits are to be set on the number of people allowed to immigrate. It boils down to Ricardarian economics and comparative advantage with regards to labor markets. We are no longer the leader in edjucation we once were. This would open the middle class labor market to a labor pool that is potentially more highly skilled and willing to work for less money. It will push Americans that would have otherwise been competitive in higher wage jobs into lower paying jobs, while depressing wages overall. It is outsouring middle class jobs, just doing it within our own borders.

      Trump has already fixed the loopholes with the h1b visa
      And oh yes, get rid of any and all silly degree programs from journalism , social studies , whatever gender , bender garbage .
      Stick to basics , maths and science . Any college graduate must have good mathematical skills and at least have a science subject .
      Just look at the foreigners coming in, they don't study rubbish liberal subjects .They are all very proficient in science and mathematics

      @Mark Yaske Well, I hope their health wasn't a factor for whether or not they were accepted. When the Irish came to the U.S., many of them died before, or as they disembarked the boat. They were received with signs that said, "Don't hire Irish". Their survival was mainly due to the Catholic church who took in orphans. They were not trained in a skill but started out working as servants and nannys.
      About 1/4 of the Irish population died of starvation and famine related diseases in the potato famine before any of them decided to emigrate.

      Yeah, why do you need any immigration? Just make you wonder doesn't it? Here's the start, to control the population and dictate the terms by having them adhere to some sort of standard. Immigration only exists when there's a society that places competition over cooperation. Everything is always a competitive matter with this president nothing more.
