People should be able to live whereever they want as long as they are willing to integrate and contribute to the society of their choice and as long as it doesnt cause a pollution of the environment like in cities.

As long as they are willing to integrate is the key phrase.

I hate the word "immigration"

This is one humanity. This planet is for us to share. But we exploit others and barricade people off from opportunity. Disgusting. In my philosophy, there is no such thing as immigration.

Xenophobia is an old survival mechanism, its in our very nature to be wary of others who are not the same in every way. Even then we are cautious of those who are familiar.

That's why racists are stupid, the way they perceive the world is outdated. Civilization no longer has much need for xenophobia.

Immigration is what makes us expand our knowledge of cultures. brings new opportunities and even saves people. Making immigration illegal only makes things worse because illegal immigrants in the U.S. are working for companies that exploit them by giving them little pay, over-working them, and even making them do illegal things. If anyone has seen the documentary Food Inc. it mentions how corporations hire illegal immigrants and basically abuse them and allow them to abuse the animals they slaughter for food but that's a different topic. Anyway's, it's not immigrants who make the economy bad, they're just a distraction from what really destroyed the economy... *cough* Federal Bank Reserve *cough* monopolies *cough* free market *clears throat*

Well if they legally enter the country and plan on working within it I see no problems. The world is for everyone. I think immigration only becomes a problem when it's illegal immigrants entering. Legal immigration exists for a reason.

When you hear "this country is only for us" it just makes one laugh.

But I think countries do need to manage their populations if they're becoming too over-crowded. Not sure if immigration is causing that though. What I don't agree with is immigrants getting better help than people born in the country that they are living in. That's discrimination. Shouldn't all be treated as equals for God's sake?

The philosophy is that if one nation starts attracting people, others will have a brain-drain, and be naturally inclined to rethink their governing body and reform to prevent this mass immigration. It demands the world to progress, rather than selfishly move forward(or backwards) on one's own.

It seems far easier to keep track of human rights abuses when you know these people exist. If they have the constitution protecting them, these people can join unions and the official US labor force as a whole, which would be amazing for our economy.

Good luck to them finding a union at all, never mind one with any balls.

Description

What are your viewpoints on immigration?

Does anyone here reside in a country in which they don't have citizenship?

In my opinion, these people are waving flags, not burning them. The US should accept just about anyone who is willing to contribute to this society- which they are- at least far more than our current elite.

(this applies to any country)
