I've read that before as well.
It tries to make an issue like immigration black and white, even though it's much more complicated than that. I typically don't engage in conversations about the topic because it's so complicated and heated.
i have not seen this! but this is pretty crazy! to be honest...i dont know what to think about this... :-/
Hmm. I'm not sure how I'll be taken by everyone else but let me say first and foremost, I believe in immigration. I'm a fan of it (clearly!) and I think that multiculturalism is fantastic. But immigration has to be done the RIGHT way. And yes, there is such a thing. Yes, it takes a long time, its complicated and super expensive. If you can't follow a country's immigration laws and gain access legally, why are you gonna follow said country's other laws?
I like that US immigration is difficult because there is nothing wrong with being selective with who you let into your country. I personally think the UK is too lax with their law and that has only gotten worse since Europe decided to open its borders. I really don't know anyone who left the UK and went to live in Eastern Europe for a better life.
I think in these economic times every country must put its citizens first. Perhaps that sounds selfish but I was raised to believe that charity starts at home. Because if I can't take care of myself, how can I take care of others.
