You are turning into the king of simplifications
Well, Nigerians are flooding the US anyway. They are receiving visas for the casinos. And man are they rude. No, we cannot open our borders to the world entire. But what has Nigeria contributed to the United States? What can they contribute. Poland was ready to park our missles on their soil, for goodness sake. I do not blame them for scrapping that idea.
Poland is by no means comparable to Nigeria. They do not have to come to the US. They can work anywhere they want in Europe, and they rotate in and out. The Brits can now come to Poland with their capital and make everything expensive. I hate that for Poles. Heck, some I know cannot even buy an apartment there anymore, because the Brits and others ran there and bid up the prices so that the Poles have to go to the UK to work to earn enough to compete for housing in their own country. The ones with the property before the EU made a fortune and moved to Italy.
It would do no damage to open our borders to Poles and Brits. It might actually help us in the EU. Lord knows we need the PR.
Mexicans? Well, a lot of Mexicans are in the US illegally. I think they should also receive work visas. Why? Because the cheap labor is the reason they go. They earn lower money than what the law allows. Make it legal for them to work and they will demand higher wages. Put them on the same field of comeptition as gringos. They are there anyway, and are afraid to leave for fear of not being able to return. Just make it easier for them and they will not linger around and have anchor babies. They will come home more often to Mexico and stop this damned SS card sharing. They will pay taxes and have benefits instead of working for **** money, getting treated like crap, and maybe they won't risk dying in the back of a ******* truck or drowning in a river just to earn a few bucks. I do not believe it would have much of an impact on drug smuggling, but it could create better relations. Mexico, given a chance, could be an amazing ally for the US. We just have to bring them along and stop treating them like a political football.
It is time the US worked to create better relations in the world. With her allies and her potential allies. Just my ideas. Yes, I risk over-simplification. Yes, just as the EU, there would have to be some fundamental changes on both sides so that we can mesh. It is coming. We might as well prepare now.
