why not?

why not?
The only thing I wish to say is that there seems to be no real reason why we should not allow immigration. Yes, the U.S. has a rapidly increasing population--so does the rest of the world, and there's nothing that will prevent that (except maybe birth control). To those of you who are arguing with me right now, I ask you to drive to New York and read the words imprinted on our own Statue of Liberty: 'The New Colossus, the famous sonnet of Emma Lazarus, welcoming immigrants to the United States.'

How can we refuse people the opportunity to improve their lives and promote our economy if they wish to try?
