  •  The Cons are instinct-driven people, (0+ / 0-)

    whose behavior responds to emotions such as:

    greed
    envy
    anger
    lust
    sloth

    Their antagonism, since it can't be applied universally, if they want to survive, tends to be targeted selectively. That is, they segregate populations against which to direct their animus.
    Restricting migration is basically a violation of human rights for the simple reason that humans are mobile creatures and their perambulation is a natural consequence. That many population groups have invented arbitrary political borders does not make this behavior appropriate. Since, during most of its history, the EuroAmerican residents of the United States have been trying to entice others of their kind to the continent's shores, the currently imposed restrictions are deplorable.
    The U.S. isn't turning into a third world country in response to immigration; the third world status is, as ever, the result of humans exploiting their own kind to their detriment.

    Finally, citizenship is a bundle of obligations, not a privileged status. The obligations:

    to vote
    to serve on juries
    to hold office
    to draft legislation
    to provide material support
    to enforce the laws

    By all accounts, Ms. Victor has done her part.

    We organize governments to deliver services and prevent abuse.
