First, the proper pathway "out of the shadows" is for illegal aliens to
take their children and return, with the parents who brought them here, to their
lawful countries of residence.This editorial is just more cheap
foreign labor propaganda. The implication that Americans are too dumb and few
in number to get the job done is a lie. It really is about greedy
businessmen's reluctance to pay their fellow American a fair wage, they
having discovered that they can get away with paying a foreign worker a lot
less. Hence they are bound and determined to flood this nation with
cheap, foreign labor. In their abject selfishness, they do not care that this
would result in more and more Americans not being able to afford to support
their families -- and have more children -- nor that rewarding persons who
disrespect this nation and its laws with legal residency status would
irreparably harm the unity and integrity of the nation.Greed is a
great blight upon America today."And again I say unto you, It is
easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to
enter into the kingdom of God."

In business competition, the Americans will lose. If America is
about business, the article is true and it’s words should be heeded. If
America is about the people living in America and their rights and freedoms, we
should say no to the article.
Head of the pro-open border Chamber of Commerce? In 1920 America
reached 100 million, by 1970 we reached 200 million, in 2010 we reached 300
million. Our population seems to be doing ok. A large flux of immigrants now
will create a bubble when they reach retirement. Slow steady growth is the only
way. In most cases it is the children of immigrants that create, not
the immigrant themselves. Americans can't do hard work, we
can't be smart STEM workers, we can't create. How did we build this
greatest country on Earth.
