    Default Is it the role of our government to run the country like a charity?

    This really seems to be the real question to ask regarding the immigration debate. Listening to Democrats this seems to be their philosophy on how government should shape immigration policy. While many citizens of this country believe that immigration policy should be merit based and be in our best interests. So is it the role of government to run the country (with a 20 trillion dollar debt) like a charity?

    They stay there 5 years and then can apply for citizenship or go home. If they want to stay they can buy their house and get paid a higher wage for working in the bag factory.
    How about we not call them hole country immigrants and call them people and not have them in a government compound working a government factory.

    Not all refugees are sponsored by Christian organizations.

    Don't listen to Rush (mostly CNBC). Never said anywhere I had the absolute answer for this issue either. Are you saying there are no legitimate questions that can or should be raised about immigration policy?

    Are you saying that you think it should be somewhere in the middle?

    There are always questions. I don't believe people should be banned from immigrating here based on country.
