Immigration Out of Control?

This video about LEGAL immigration brings up some interesting points. Are we hurting world poverty because of our LEGAL immigration policy? For all you tree huggers, is our current immigration policy, which liberal politicians put in place in the 60's, destroying the environment they claim to want to help? All of this doesn't even address the damage that ILLEGAL immigration is doing to the country.

Whether you want to acknowledge it or not, there is a symbiotic relationship with illegal aliens' labor and our economy. Get rid of half of them permanently and our GDP will drop several percentage points. How convenient that the "conservative" GOP didn't adequately fund INS and then complained when they were short-staffed in getting applications processed.

I'm just as upset that the INS wasn't adequately funded, so you'll get no argument from me on that one.

As far as a drop in GDP in the short term you are right, but the long term benefits for the country would far outweigh the short dip.
