  • What happened to America?

    I know and was born in America and the most I know is America is land to all and land of the free. No person can be seperated just because of ethnicity, skin color, appearance, political beliefs, religious beliefs, etc. I understand the point of security especially know with theorists and military coming in, but no person should be restricted because someone "thinks" they arm harmful. People can not assume certain people are harmful just because of their background. America is a free state. Restricted immigration does not make much sense and is not fair to anyone. We are not letting in those who are afraid and harmed while worrying about our own well being. I'm not saying we should not look after ourselves and let people in but am saying that we can keep ourselves safe while bringing safety to others. We shouldn't be worried about what type of people are dangerous because that is racist even at its slightest. We should be worried about how to tell dangerous people apart from the scared needing people who need help. We need to form and find new technology and ways to help stop danger and keep safety to ALL. We need to create jobs for people and a system that works in every good soul,s favor. And I'd like to point out that homes are not an issue because so many homes are not being used so why do we have homeless immigrants? We need to not only let them in but give them a foundation to work on and a mindset to work
    Still being a 13 year old girl I think I'm speaking on behalf of every righteous person out there who believes in America and believes in diversity and believes in some for of love and brother/sisterhood between us all.

  • E pluribus unum

    'Out of many, one'. What has happened to this core American idea? The idea that whatever someones race, religion, language or ancestry, they can come to the United States of America and integrate themselves into society and contribute to that society, emerging many individuals and communities into one nation.

    This is the concept which made America what it is today, and created that diverse and free country, which so many in America treasure. America has the resources and the economy to be able to allow this, so why not?

    After all, who is truly American?

  • Diversity is our greatest strength

    The US is the most diverse country on Earth, and that diversity is our greatest strength. People come to the US for opportunity, for access to the world's best college systems, to start a new life, and make a better life for their children. These are honorable goals; fear of what might happen with supposed terrorists and a raise to the bottom for jobs is futile and small-minded.

  • It is dangerous not to have restriction

    When we speak of the restriction of immigration, at the present time, we have not in mind measures undertaken for the purpose of straining out from the vast throngs of foreigners arriving at our ports a few hundreds, or possibly thousands of persons, deaf, dumb, blind, idiotic, insane, pauper, or criminal, who might otherwise become a hopeless burden upon the country, perhaps even an active source of mischief. The propriety, and even the necessity of adopting such measures is now conceded by men of all shades of opinion concerning the larger subject. There is even noticeable a rather severe public feeling regarding the admission of persons of any of the classes named above; perhaps one might say, a certain resentment at the attempt of such persons to impose themselves upon us. We already have laws which cover a considerable part of this ground; and so far as further legislation is needed, it will only be necessary for the proper executive department of the government to call the attention of Congress to the subject. There is a serious effort on the part of our immigration officers to enforce the regulations prescribed, though when it is said that more than five thousand persons have passed through the gates at Ellis Island, in New York harbor, during the course of a single day, it will be seen that no very careful scrutiny is practicable.

  • Restrictions are important due to workers in the food industry-shortages

    America is not short on food, but we are short on food distribution sources. It's likely that an unrestricted immigration policy would increase homeless families beyond the abilities of food shelters to provide. Food. Restating my point, we have food, just not enough workers to feed the homeless and needy.

  • No

    I do not think that is a good idea. Immigration should be regulated or we will have a lot of people that will flee to our country and be able to take advantage of the system. We need to do a better job of what we regulate so that tax dollars are not being spent of people that are illegal and that they are spent on people that were born here or went through the process of becoming legal.

  • No Way, Jose

    Although immigration is important to the United States to continue our diverse melting pot and continue to benefit from the gains that gives us, there needs to be SOME guidelines and restrictions to ensure that we are not just allowing "anyone" to enter the country and become a citizen. The concern here is not so much on the "quality" of the individual, but more so the "agenda" that individual may have. Without restrictions, enemies of the US could find their way into our country and potentially bring it down from the inside! That's a bit dramatic, yes - but it could happen without restrictions.

  • Too Many People Too Fast

    Unrestricted immigration would cause myriads of problems. The United States would be flooded with refugees from Mexico, Cuba, Afghanistan, and the Middle East. A huge backlog would be created in the State Department and terrorists would still find a way to exploit open borders. American jobs would be put at risk as immigrants would be willing to work for less pay. The system is already broken and needs to be fixed first before any drastic changes are made again.

  • No, unrestricted immigration would cause too many problems

    I do not support unrestricted immigration because allowing immigration without a regulated process would create havoc within the system. With a struggling economy and states finding themselves in financial trouble, allowing unrestricted immigration would only worsen their problems. The U.S is already trying to cope with over 30 years of relatively heavy legal and illegal immigration and its after effects.
