That was an appropriate response to your trollish post. Why do you ignore that I have repeatedly listed a number of specific characteristics to consider and take into account in a merit based immigration system?
Why do you ignore that I have expressed my agreement with assigning positive and negative points to desirable and undesirable characteristics of those wishing to migrate into the United States?
We need to take a common sense approach to immigration and select immigrants who will productive and beneficial to the general welfare of the United States and her citizens.
Is it common sense to allow the poverty stricken poorly educated low and unskilled populations of other countries to flood into America? Even if there is no government assistance available to this type of immigrant, they still become a public burden in other self-evident ways. Therefore, it is wise to assign a negative point to this class of immigrant. Is it not?
Is it common sense to allow those with contagious diseases such as chickenpox, tuberculosis, measles, mumps, and sexually transmitted diseases to be introduced into our nation’s population? Of course not, and thus a restriction ought to be placed upon this class of immigrant.
Is it common sense to allow immigrants with mental disorders to be introduced into our country? Of course not, and thus, a negative point must be assigned to this classification.
How about immigrants who are healthy and have a skill to offer, but are destitute and with no visible means of support? Should we not require this type of immigrant to have a job and residence waiting and upon entry place this type of immigrant on a probationary time period?
And how about those wishing to migrate into the United States whose cultural and moral values are in direct conflict with America’s cultural and moral values? Should we not consider the consequences of allowing this group to flood into our country, and restrict their entry to preserve the general welfare of our country?
And let us not forget a group which falls into a very, very dangerous class . . . those who are tied to terrorist groups and whose mission is to bring mayhem and destruction to the United States. Is it really in America’s best interests to open our borders to this type of “immigrant”?
Hopefully the above answers your absurd and trollish question.
