Vote trump out. We are no longer the USA we are Hell. This world is in pain and it use to look to us for answers. They don’t want our answers now because our answers now do more harm than good. Also, this is evidence that Trump is a racist. He doesn’t want Mexicans or Chinese or anyone from a NONWHITE country to migrate here through Family immigration or chain migration, so how did Melania get permission to SPONSOR HER FUCKING PARENTS!!!!! If he wasn’t against it I wouldn’t be speaking about it, but he is and everything he says we need to analyze just so we know what are we doing.

I think Donald Trump has also said that he will change the immigration laws that make anyone born in the States a citizen, if their parents are not citizens themselves. But Donald Trump's mother was from Scotland, and his grandfather was from Germany. So really, he wants, or used to want, to change the laws that made it so his mother and grandfather could stay in the States.

My wife is a Business professor from India with a PhD from UW. She had an H1B visa and would have had to wait for years for her Green Card if she didn't marry me. When she got her Green Card this February her happiness was dampened severely knowing her sister and many of her friends might have to wait decades to receive theirs. I consider myself extremely informed but I had no idea how terribly unfair the immigration system was until I started dating her.

Not necessarily. Immigrants as a demographic tend to hate illegal immigrants more then anyone else, since they're percieved as line jumpers. Also, a lot of them come from conservative countries. Republicans hate them because they outsiders, and thus make easy scapegoats for more complicated issues that their politicians don't really want to deal with.

It is odd people why people wants to come to this country: there is no universal health insurance, high incarceration rate, mass shootings every few months or years, and government corruption. Canada and Australia are also lands of immigrants as well & they got there acts together better than the US.

"America is full, no more LEGAL migration" -Trump. America's land mass is 4th according to the CIA World Book occupying 3,119,884.69 square miles, not including Alaska, Hawaii, and island territories . They included Antarctica, so let's say its the 3rd biggest country, with population of 332,639,102. America is HUGE!!! I could disappear into the horizon if I go full clandestine. The government will never find me. It takes 10 hours to fly from Portland, ME to San Diego, CA, flying at cursing speed of 600 mph in a straight line. I went to Wyoming not too long ago, it was flat and deserted for miles and miles, same with neighboring states like Idaho, Montana, Iowa, Nebraska, and the Dakotas. Sure, it may resemble their home countries, minus rubble of houses, sand mixed with human remains and the relative chance of stepping on a mine or IED. But they will find peace.

From my understanding, isnt there area in the united states that are suffering from population declined, they are even offering low-interest mortgage, low-cost public college, as well as student loan forgiveness, if you relocated to that area. Read about it somewhere in an article a while back. so like why not bring in more immigrants and have them live there?

The only positive take away from legal immigration is money. A nation is more than an economy. Giving away pockets to people who don't even respect you is a horrible idea.

Saying that immigrants don't respect the US or its citizens just isn't true, especially immigrants who are citizens. https://www.cato.org/publications/immigration-research-policy-brief/immigrants-recognize-american-greatness-immigrants "Seventy‐​five percent of immigrants who are American citizens are very proud to be American compared to only 69 percent of native‐​born Americans." If anything, seems like immigrants who come in and become citizens are more proud of this country than other citizens. That's just one stat point out of a dozen in that article which illustrates that immigrants are not statistically different in their opinion of America or their fellow Americans when compared to the rest of us. There are even a few cases where they carry more pride, even.

As someone who's studying Americanistics, and as someone whose biggest dream is to move to the US (despite all of it's flaws I stick to my dream), this video made me extremely anxious and sad. I will have to work really hard and probably have my soul killed until I get there. But I will not give up, and on behalf of everyone else who'd like to move to the US, I hope and pray that legal immigration laws will get better in time. That's all I have. Hope.

Stephen2462 not really a false equivalence considering thousands of children were split from their families under both Bush and Obama.

@jasper426 False equivilence. They were mostly temporary facilities set up around events like hurricanes that inevitably cause a spike in il(legal) entries. Then the Trump administration made them permanent and massively expanded them to account for their policy changes that caused significant upticks in the number of people being held. Also, Obama was much better about creating paths to legal citizenship, which Trump has been against, which puts his actions in a very different perspective.

@jasper426 No more so then any other president. Obama was criticized for a lot of stupid stuff, like wearing a tan suit and eating dijon mustard, and don't get me started on that stupid birther stuff, which Trump was a vocal part of. The critisism of Trump just gets more attention because he keeps saying and doing things that deserve it and are easy to criticize.
