Boy does this sound familiar. The main issue with immigrants to anywhere being

Hmmmmmmmmmm....And let's face it. There are some 6 billion
humans on planet Earth today. The vast majority unfortunately live in poverty
and know they can have a better life going to a first world country. Neither
the U.S. or all of Europe can absorb every person who would want to move to
those countries. Otherwise the poverty of nations would become universal. We
are a huge country compared to England, and we can absorb more. England will
reach a breaking point sooner than us. It will be interesting to see how all
this plays out financially and politically over there.
