4. I think that we should look at why Mexicans would want to leave
Mexico and come to Nebraska to work in a meat packing plant (have you ever seen a Nebraskan winter). Or why American's think that it is too beneath them to work in the fields to produce the foods that they eat? Or why the wage is so depressed that it is hard to live with a meager salary. Mass immigration doesn't happen because one wants to come, its because they are forced to come. I don't have a poblem with immigration either. I do have a problem with the rest of the world being forced to act as slaves to our existence. Would you like to work in the sweat shops in China to make stupid little plastic toys for McDonalds that will end up littering landfills? Would you know how to live in a place where you have to walk 5 miles to get clean drinking water? Would you like to live in a place where education in non-existent or bombs, violence, and prostitution is normal?

These are serious problems throughout the world. Immigration is just the icing on the cake to the world's problems.
