Is the principle that anyone can enter the country and be employed? In other words, one does not need a passport or visa to enter.
This then leaves open and ignores
1. any questionable background of the people coming in
2. any impact on social service costs
3. any impact on the employment of citizens, particularly in the massively vulnerable black male 18-25 demo'
4. any impact on crime
That sum it up?
May I ask what the difference is between being a USA citizen and jumping the border?
You are confusing citizenship with being in the country. I am for opening up the borders and respecting the rights of those in the country, as well as those citizens around them
. That is not the same thing as conferring all of the privileges as citizenship, like the right to vote, access to non-emergency social services, or those with criminal backgrounds are permitted.
The mixing up of those two concepts is either due to willful ignorance, or intentional dishonesty.
It's "pea-can", man.
