Let the new job makers in!

People say “I have nothing against Mexicans, but they should come in legally, do the paperwork, and so on.”

The thing is, our national laws are stacked against them. Throughout our country’s history, Congress has given preference to people of a background similar to their own, that is to Europeans, through quotas. Asians and Hispanic quotas have been kept low or nonexistent.

Only when immigrants from all areas of the world are treated equally can we have a fair immigration system.

What many Americans don’t, or don’t want to, realize is that most new inventions and job creations have come from immigrants and first-generation Americans. By discriminating, we are keeping the new job makers out of our country.
