Since this whole debate is athinly veiled argument against Mexican immigration (not necessarily the OP, BUT THE DEBATE IN GENERAL) let me remind everyone that Native Americans have claim to to the land. Mexicans are native Americans that were INVADED by Spain instead of Britain. Close the order to Europeans, Canadians, etc... Before you do it to them. But interestingly enough, the only place people want to put up a fence is near Mexico.

First thing, the chip on your shoulder might or might not be warranted. Your mom is exactly the right kind of immigrant this country has always embraced. I don't think anyone as an issue with her. The whole conversation here was basically, how do we get folks like her in under the present system and not be able to get flooded with folks that did not come in the right way.

She did not come here illegally or primarily to break the law through and probably did not even have a criminal record. That is why we have two sides to the argument and why the OP is looking for a compromise. Your mom embodies the spirit the nation has had for 200 years on immigration. Nobody fears her.

Translation: She's not Hispanic or Muslim.

Open borders is what's caused a greater divide between rich/poor.

 

If we'd had controlled immigration, our "minimum wages" would've self-corrected due to the little supply/demand curve.  Need the chart again?

Nah, it's because right-wingers hate brown people.

It's not a question on if you were dropped on your head as a child, rather "How many times?"

You disagree with supply demand chart with respect to influx of low wage earners and the price point being stagnant?
