OK, culture is always changing. So what? Change is not a virtue in and of itself. There is good change and there is bad change. Why don't you consider improving your culture instead of annihilating it. Also, stop calling people who oppose unleashed immigration racist. Would you like me to call you a excruciatingly naive scumbag, or a moralizing Liberal Fascist, for favoring amnesty? How about we keep ad hominems out of it.
This is very true. Although a properly enforced border does also make good practical sense.
Also, there needs to be an effective way of handling the people already in the country. Essentially they must be dealt with on an individual basis - it's not like you could kick them all out collectively. Aside from the moral problem with that, it could seriously pull the plug on the economy, which is faltering enough as it is.
I didn't say Americans are racist and bigoted...I said the laws qualifying people as unworthy of human rights are racist. I said the attitude of nationalist xenophobia is racist.
