For decades the progressive left told Americans we were destroying the world by population. America responded by lowering births. Now they say we need to import people. WTH?

Translation: big business would rather have cheap labor instead of offering to pay workers more. they aren't happy about it, but they are going to do it. this is how you let market forces grow wages without forcing companies with intrusive regulations.

To be honest, I wouldn't even mind open borders if we got rid of welfare programs. Until then, let's stick to bringing in educated and skilled legal immigrants.

Then speed up the process. I moved to Canada 5 years ago. Got permanent residence in a year. Legal immigration doesn't need to make everyone a citizen fast, but at least get them a green card quickly so they work, pay taxes, and are protected under the law.
