I don't really have much of an opinion on what our immigration laws should be. I lean towards lots of immigration, as I think it makes our country stronger as long as we aren't spending money on people en masse with Medicaid and food stamps. The reason why it's not really something on the table is that first, the public wants less immigration, not more:

So we should maintain current OFFICIAL immigration levels, while reordering our priorities to meet demand a little better, and also our country's needs. And between E-verify and enough agents and courts, we can make sure we never have millions of illegal immigrants again.

In other words, my objection has little to do with the immigrants themselves and more to do with mass disrespect for our laws and politicians who believe the public needs to be lied to for our own good.
