    He is hoping the less educated will be democrats and in addition, he hates this country, so in his own little way, continue to destroy it!

    @Keyjo He is hoping the less educated will be democrats and in addition, he hates this country, so in his own little way, continue to destroy it! 69% of the people in Ohio without a high school diploma voted for Obama. He needs more uneducated people in the democratic party.

    I keep hearing conservatives talking about those damned "liberal colleges." That damned "liberal education." Why are conservatives so afraid of an educated population? Because they are afraid of progress, progressives. If it was up to conservatives,(not all, but too many), we'd all still be living in cabins, pooping in out houses, drinking well water: or perhaps be even MORE primitive.

    @Keyjo It does not appear that what education a liberal college provides, is adequate or normal. You might want to tell the Occupy Movement how to properly have a bowel movement utilizing proper toileting facilities and about their filthy tents!

    I think we might be wise to reject all immigration <"for a while"> and concentrate on bringing our country back to being the world leader it use to be. Secure our borders,pay down our debt,improve our schools and just basicly,get our head and ass wired back togeather.

    I agree with you on this one. I have a friend a chemist grad, very intelligent. he fell outta status because of a broken immigration system and now does odd jobs here and there.

    I work in a very culturally and racially diverse company but for the sake of discussion here, guys, does the phrase "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe Free" not count any more. Do we - should we only require the elite for admission? I'm not aiming for condescension, just comments.

    @Rocker could be now that most citizens are now those tired and hungry huddled masses yearning to breath free. a country who will not put their own citizens first above all others is a country about to fall. look at all the newly graduated that cannot get these jobs while the cry for more workers is out by those looking to not hire an American citizen. a reporter pointed this out to obama,her husband a fresh engineer,shows the whole system.

    @tomincali -that argument tends to have a little traction. I have 2 PharmDs and an Engineer in the family that had a little trouble finding jobs, unless you discount Alaska, which they weren't willing to move to. The present job / economic environment is not conductive to seekers from within the US. During these times I can see slowing the influx of people coming in. Would you generalize that the situation in the US is reminiscent to the Roman Empire - too diverse supporting too many cultures?

    @Rocker nope not supporting too many cultures bringing in far too many when there are few jobs putting a huge number of those new comers right into welfare rolls.

    Roman empire just about what we are doing. slowing or stopping all immigration for awhile would be great for the citizens of the country. one thing for sure all who come here need to be held to their agreement

    Barry Doesn't want the best and the brightest to come here and achieve success. He prefers "subjects" that are dependent upon the "compassion" from the welfare state that he is turning America into, all the while punishing those who want to become a success by redistributing their money to the lazy.

    I don't think that's it. I think he just wants it to be equal, not privileged. But I am in disagreement with him on this.

    Of course he needs to be selective . Professional or indedendent working immigrants
    won't add more beggars to his socialist welfare agenda. Simple as that.

    Yup! I have to disagree with the President on this one. I think that we should be first seeking out the best, highest skilled we can. There are some 3.8 million unfilled, skilled jobs in the United States right now. We don't need more unskilled laborers. We need technologically savvy workers. Skilled immigrants and college and tech school available to ALL American students as an educational ENTITLEMENT.

    Have you seen the television show Border Wars? I watched it last night. If half of what they showed is accurate, then we have the Mexican version already.

    I live on the border, and cone from a Border Patrol family. Border Wars is accurate as all get out. Folks up north don't believe it.

    @texas_cutie75 Wow, unreal. Those guys look like they're fighting a loosing battle. Totally understaffed. How do your family members feel about the situation?

    @FollowTheMoney their medai is afraid to put out most of the news as well,many reporters have been killed for it. thats why they use alot of blogs for safety reasons.wonder if our is in fear as well, if you read through borderland beat and other blog news sources like mundonarco you will see what is right next door.then wonder why our msm and gov is keeping this out of the public eye.

    "The President appears hesitant to play favorites when it comes to who will enter the country, even if it's at the expense of national prosperity." Yet the vast majority of those entering the country over the last 20 years have been from Mexico. Is that fair to hopeful immigrants from the other 200 countries in the world?

    Let me get this straight. There are educated people whose education has already been partially or fully paid for that want to come here. We could allow these people with great know-how and ideas to immigrate as priority, vs allowing anyone that applies to come. Mathematically the lottery means we'll get lower-skilled, less motivated people that we have to help pay for their education. I'm not seeing the upside to this. Where is the president's pragmatism here?
  • #61

    It's simple, if you give priority to people who are educated and highly skilled there's a better chance they could become successful and not reliant on government. The more low skilled uneducated people we bring in, the more that can be put on government programs, and we all know which party THAT benefits....

    Of course he rejects highly skilled engineers and entrepreneurs. He wants more democrats. Poor and illiterate voters are the best guarantee of that. He does not care at all about our country. The clueless electorate just put that idiot back in for another 4 years. The biggest challenges in finding enough people to fill open jobs is in the STEM area....which actually CREATES jobs. The recent election was about the future of our country...and the country lost.

    What a surprise! If President Obama isn't already wealthy now, he will be within two years of leaving the office of The President of the United States! And while I'm not saying that maybe he doesn't deserve it for serving, I don't think it a shock that a soon to be rich man doesn't want emigrants coming in and taking jobs that maybe their friends could be given. Not many qualified emigrants would move here with their families if all they got was minimum wage or less - AND the American Dream.

    Ok, you can not have it both ways. Either you folks want everyone to wait there turn in the order they applied, or you don't. The anti-imigrant peope are just zuch hypocrites on these issues. First, there are a lot of intelligent people who comntribute to soceity without advanced degrees. Second the real issue is shouldn't we ne upgrading our own capacity to educate right here in the u.s., including the education of immigrants who live here to grow these types of skills here rather then importing this. The u.s. needs to be educating and turning out more folks that can do these jobs, people already here need the jobs, an we need the capacity to train people right hete...

    I'll wager that if the majority of these people were Hispanic, he'd welcome each and every oner personally. He likes to buy votes, just like he did with the Dream Act.

    Agree that it should be more selective. We need people that can do the jobs that the rest of us are too dumb to do. I had to answer the opposite in the poll. I'll change my answer if the Statue of Liberty is taken down.

    this administration is advertising for low income poverty class people from Mexico to move here. they promise welfare benefits if they can get here....they are building their base and working americans are paying for it. obama doesnt want educated immigrants...they would not support his party.
