    maybe you can navigate that system better than all the people I know?

    •  So, how do you think government and business (0+ / 0-)

      should treat undocumented immigrants differently from Legal Permanent Residents ("LPRs")?

      The most important way to protect the environment is not to have more than one child.

        and rather than punish them, point them in the right direction.

        Keep in mind that it is U.S. policy that sends many of them fleeing from their lands, like NAFTA in Mexico.

        •  The difference is "treated like human beings"? (0+ / 0-)

          Are you saying undocumented immigrants should be treated exactly the same as Legal Permanent Residents?

          What if any differences should there be in employment, access to food stamps and other public assistance, ability to collect social security benefits, ability to get a loan from a bank?

    •  15 million people applied this year (0+ / 0-)

      for the visa lottery – a program that hands out 50,000 green cards per year based on chance.

      Should the U.S. accept every person who applied?  

      We cannot accommodate the billions of people from the rest of the world who want to come here.

      We already don't have enough jobs for the people who are already here.  It defies logic to allow the few jobs that exist in the U.S. to be open to the entire world.

      How about some concern for the unemployed U.S. population too.
