It's easy to pass judgment when you don't know who or what you're talking about.
Anyhow, I would think it would be the easiest thing in the world to view that list of nations and to say to oneself "I think we'll do it differently."
You obviously took what I said the wrong way, or didn't read all that I posted. I DO NOT think that all immigrants come here to get a free ride. Some do though, and it's a slap in the face to the ones who come here and go through the legal process of becoming a citizen and bettering their lives.
I also know that many illegals work very, very hard...but there still has to be some way to make sure that they have the chance to be here legally. I'm all for hard work, I've worked hard since I was 14...I've also had to pay taxes since I was 16. I don't think it's right that employers are paying illegals dirt wages to work their tails off and I don't think it's right that it's far too easy to allow illegals into this country. Please don't confuse that with me passing judgement on what they are working for.
