The breakdown of the immigration process

Reader comment on item: Terror & Denial [by Hadayat at LAX]

Submitted by Stan Rose (United States), Jul 10, 2002 at 11:12

The events at LAX parallel hundreds of similar violent and willful tragedies that have occurred in France, England, Germany, Italy, Spain, as well as United States.

This problem actually began with the start of Americas industrial revolution in the 1890's when we began a program to attract immigrants needed for labor in our factories and farms. It commenced in Western Europe in the 1970's as a means to attract industrial labor from third world Countries such as Turkey, Albania, Pakistan and India. The results were somewhat favorable at first in at first in all the Western countries, but became disastorous during the recent past. The reason for this is the complete breakdown of the Western states need to adhere to the very specific entry provisions and conditions that were needed to maintain a strong immigration platform. The need to maintain the integrity of the present citizenry. The ability to maintain the very structure of the Country's history and peaceful ways. The crime rates in Western Europe are up dramatically. Terrorism in all Western countries have expanded.

Most of this can be blamed on the breakdown of the immigration process. The question is not which segment of Government has condoned this lax immigration process.... Both liberals and conservatives are to blame. The liberals for seeking the easy votes of these immigrants, and the conservatives for the need to suck up the cheapest labor possible, even at the cost of what we have now. How in the world did the great U.S.A. and Great Britain sink to this level. Isn't about time that we freeze immigation for 2 years until we set up new standards allowing only the fittest into our nation?
