    Back then the immigration was legal.

    Nowadays there is an enormous influx of illegals.

    because back then the European immigrants came here to work in a healthy society, and live with their families. rather than the hordes of illegals from the "south" of today who come here to exploit it and bring drugs, crime, and all types of assorted filth and disease.

    Hey, I immigrated in the 1900s.

    If I would have immigrated today would people call me Juan rather than John?

    It might be the lazy eye. It's a bit too solemn for a specious personality.

    People come to this country today for the same reasons they always have. The difference is that we, as a nation, welcomed people because we believed that our resources were endless, and we needed to build our infrastructure. Now we are beginning to notice that our resources are dwindling (thanks to multinational corporations sucking our economy dry), our infrastructure projects have all but stopped, and we're trying to get Niagara Falls to start going back up.

    x2 ^^ The population in America had depleted greatly from the many wars it had encountered starting from the civil war to World War II. And America was also increasing in size at the same time. However cities nowadays such as New York City and San Francisco have populations that are incredibly high. The unemployment rate was HIGH and not that its sooo low today but it is much lower than the time of the great depression.

    Another reason is the corruption that is occuring now a days. Immigrants are highered over nonimmigrants because they are much cheaper. Some poeple don't even bother paying immigrants.

    Final Reason: Immigrants can no longer really benefit us like they use too in the early 1900's. They can't bring any more culture to than we already have. They are more harmful to our society (economically and politically) than beneficial.

    They're also less useful cus we're no longer a nation of production. We ship all our production jobs overseas(which ain't that great economically).

    If we'd be more into production then the immigrants would be a big help...but cus of our policies and economic decisions on the nationa/international level, we ain't producin much anymore. Coincidentally, that's one of the things that is causing the economic downturn. There are a slew of other things that are ruining our economy though (slowly but surely, cus they got originally unforeseen circumstances)
    "...that's the great virtue of the free market, of the private market. It enables people...who hate one another...who don't speak the same language...who would fight one another if they had the chance, to cooperate economically. We were able to deal with China when China was a communist state. Even though we thought that that was a terrible arrangement, we could still cooperate. And that's what markets enable people to do. They bring freedom with them."
