Because then the floodgates would open. Half of south america, a significant amount of the middle east and a large portion of asia would suddenly up and move to your shores. This sudden influx would put such a massive strain on the various governmental departments as well as creating such unrest within the community that your country would either collapse or at least be severely crippled for the next century.

I recommend Mencia -- he's totally politically incorrect, and he makes some good points.
fusiontortellini wrote:One of the things I like about Mencia is that by making jokes out of racism -- using all the perjorative words, making fun of stereotypes, etc. -- he makes the point that we're all Americans now. The political area has been so divisive lately; he makes the point that we may all be different, but we're still all the same.

Giving immigrants some sort of "guest worker" status would cut down on hunting for people and would allow the border patrol to concentrate on drugs and explosives and all that other lovely stuff we're supposed to be scared of.
Not to mention the human trafficking. If you can be here legally, you're less likely to find yourself sexually enslaved with no appeal to legal authorities.
