    The USA isn't like it used to be over a hundred years ago when it welcomed the masses from all around the world because of having massive unused land resources. We're now running out of room and resources.
    There are currently hundreds of thousands of acres of prime farmland lost each and every year to accommodate population growth. People need to understand that we have a very limited amount of land... especially good farmland, and it's being permanently lost due to population growth. We also have limited water and other natural resources that states and cities are now fighting over. Adding over a million new immigrants a year makes those battles that much worse.
    In this case, I have to agree with Senator Graham. Concerning new immigration, an emphasis needs to be placed on economic and job criteria, in limiting the growth to those most qualified in helping the economic growth and improvement of our country. And to tighter limit those who are least able and likely to contribute... those who are less educated, have no technical job skills and have less inclination toward learning the English language. Being more selective is now imperative.
