As someone who, a while ago, had the privilege to temporarily reside and work (legally) in the U.S. under one of the many visa programmes created to that end, I feel obliged to fully support Carol's position (and many other's) on that matter.

The "open doors" policy that for so many years has prevailed in many Western nations, the poison of multiculturalism and the insurmountable idiocy that we call "politically correct" is killing our civilization from the inside. The spectacle of thousands of illegal immigrants defiantly marching on American streets carrying foreign flags was particularly disturbing, as it made a mockery of the laws of the country, and a fool of those who, like me, follow the rule-of-law.

Inasmuch as that a complete shutdown of immigration – and perhaps, by extension, certain visitor programmes – will have a tremendous negative impact on bona-fide migrants and prospective temporary residents, the long-term benefits to Americans (safety, for example) and to those who genuinely desire to visit, study, work or permanently reside in the U.S. (according to the law) more than justify it.
