    For a pretty liberal guy, I think we need better border security and ought to know who's coming and going in and out of our country.

    But it's quite a day when the President of our country calls other countries shitholes (which is entirely consistent with his narrative about Mexico, Africans living in huts not wanting to go home and Muslims coming here with aids. And then follows it up by saying we need to bring in "more people from countries like Norway" Guess he means white people.

    Enough already, just shut your stupid pie hole and let Congress do its job before further embarrassing yourself. And here's a Fox link before this gets partisan.

    Aside from the blatantly racist tone of Trump's comments, what Trump fails to understand is many Scandinavians wouldn't want to come here if we paid them too.

    Of course it would be great to import a bunch of already successful scandinavians or already successful Japanese or Chinese Engineers, for the most part they are happy where they are. Immigration has always come from people on the bottom, those LOOKING for opportunity or to escape unstable countries. Hence the demand for immigrants wanting to enter tends to be from "shithole countries". Yet, that's always been what has made America great. Trump, as usual, clueless.

    Bottom line we need immigrants to keep growth growing. I have no problem with part it being randomized (lottery system) and part of it being merit based. In certain careers (doctors especially), there should essentially be no limits. If anything, we should subsidize the importations of doctors regardless of origin country. But that really shouldn't count against other forms of immigration.

    Trump is right we shouldn't be focusing on immigration to the US from people with hardly any skills to contribute much right away. Some is alright but just because they have an earthquake happen doesn't mean they should be allowed to stay indefinitely.

    I agree, if a program was intended to be temporary they don't necessarily have a right to stay permanently. That's why if we are giving people "temporary" status, it should be defined. But what if it's not defined?

    It is too ridiculous to deport someone that's been here legally from the 1980's (such as with the El Salvadorians that came up recently). Our governments inaction, should give them defacto permanent status IMO. Especially if we had them going through hoops year after year after year, but at the same time not allowing them to gain citizenship or true permanent status due to those very same hoops.

    You have a good point about the ones that have been here a crazy amount of time like that.

    They are here LEGALLY under TPS (specifically the Salvadorans) and have been for 17 years. Now Trump has decided to not renew the TPS so thousands of families may have to be broken up. Thousands of legally born US citizens (children) will either see their parents sent away or be forced to move to a country they have never known.

    I give him a pass on the plane, mistakes happens. Although it is a hilarious internet response. He should be absolutely ashamed IF that really was his comment on immigration. He ought to step down if that really escaped his brain through his mouth. Unfit isn’t just about insanity.

    Why not? What's so great about Scandinavian countries? They hardly have any diversity there! I thought diversity was what makes a country great, no?

    At this point I don't even pay any mind to what Trump says, he's shown who he is and what he believes in. The people who continue to support and defend him are the ones whose sanity I question.

    The "****hole" story is apparently more fake news. A talking head on CNN informed Erin Burnett that the term Trump actually used was "****house." If true this could make a ****load of difference.

    Trump wants more good people from Norway like this upstanding citizen.

    Look, if you're going to try a desperate derailment can you at least get Obama's quote right? Have a little pride in the effort.
