Re: “SB 1070 Follow-Up: Sen. Russell Pearce's Next Plans

It's about time someone work on blocking children born to illegal immigrants in the United States from automatically becoming U.S. citizens. I think it will have to be done as a national/constitutional issue though. I think the way it has been applied has been a misinterpretation. The babies should have the same nationality as their parents. No offense to anyone's home nation meant by that at all!

Re: “Un-American Is What Un-American Does

The Arizona law is not bad at all, it's following the laws already in place. The laws do nothing more than what any other country would do and are appropriate.

Good point about the masses of needy people. Unfortunately we can not take in as much of the worlds population as we do without long term over population problems which will bring down our environment, pollute, stress our water and farm land, and crowd our cities (whose to say they aren't already bad but they could be much worse projecting population demand on resources). To avoid ripping up the landscape like Bangladesh we need to reduce legal immigration to levels that maintain a replacement level population, accounting for the higher birth rate of recent immigrants. It's not a difficult concept.

Let in people who have skills and can prove they can support themselves at whatever number is necessary for replacement level population projected over the next 20 or more years.

Unfortunately we can't take on the worlds population beyond our carrying capacity just to help out and think we are making a difference because the world replaces those populations faster than we can take them in. It really doesn't help the word, and only hurts us down the road if done in large numbers. As much as we want to help others, it would be better to help them where they are. For starters the Pope and Catholic Church should endorse using condoms and birth control. It would help make very nice livable places out of places where population growth outpaces the economy to support them. I'm just endorsing common sense, not anything cruel in terms of population control. Secondly to help people thrive economically, any local government corruption that makes it difficult for individuals to set up and run a business to support themselves should be rooted out. That would help get things going.

Thanks.
