Additional Audience Concerns

  • Comments
    • Illegal Status IS against civil law
    • Need more emphasis that immigrants DO benefit society
    • Low work ethic of US citizens matched with abortion gives rise to the need for more immigrant resources
  • Questions
    • How does immigration affect national security?
    • Does immigration affect labor and wages?
    • Are there resource constraints?
    • Do welfare benefits make immigration unsustainable?
    • Is immigration resistance due to Anglo-Saxon fears of losing cultural power?
