Immigrants

and BA you should note what the future of your country might be without them

 

http://www.inc.com/magazine/201502/adam-bluestein/the-most-entrepreneurial-group-in-america-wasnt-bo...

 

From 1996 to 2011, the business startup rate of immigrants increased by more than 50 percent, while the native-born startup rate declined by 10 percent, to a 30-year low. Immigrants today are more than twice as likely to start a business as native-born citizens.

Despite accounting for only about 13 percent of the population, immigrants now start more than a quarter of new businesses in this country. Fast-growing ones, too--more than 20 percent of the 2014 Inc. 500 CEOs are immigrants. Immigrant-owned businesses pay an estimated $126 billion in wages per year, employing 1 in 10 Americans who work for private companies. In 2010, immigrant-owned businesses generated more than $775 billion in sales. If immigrant America were a stock, you'd be an idiot not to buy it.

Re: Immigrants

BA i have a question for you to redeam yourself.

 

Are you a fulled blooded american indian ???

 

in not........YOU are an immigrant

Re: Immigrants

Actually so called native Americans are merely the first immigrants according to either the Bible, other holy books or science. Furthermore these so called native Americans constantly changed control of land as their fortunes waxed and waned. I have studied American Indian to some degree and FYI at no time did any tribe reimburse another tribe for land that was taken. Just my observations.

Re: Immigrants

Farmguy, that would be really something if a book written by men around the Mediteranean who did not even know that the Americas existed has anythingin it about Indigenous people in North America.

 

You really should stick to reality and forget that old book telling you anything about the history of the Americas.

Re: Immigrants

Trump is about ILLEGAL immigration and protecting the country from terrorist posing as immigrants. No one is calling for an end to immigration. Fake news people can't report those facts.

Re: Immigrants

You have been drinking the koolaide again 20.

There were people who had all the legal papers who were turned back and sent out of your countyr because of Trump's ban.

 

It specifically bans people from several countries that have never had anyone involved in terrorist attacks in yor country AND allowed people to continue to come from countries that have had theor citizens involved in terrorism in your country.

 

Quit 'just believing' and look at the reality of the illegal muslim ban that Trump has put in place.

Re: Immigrants

It's not a muslim ban. It is a ban of refugees from country who have openly stated they intent to hide terrorist amoung refugees to carry out terrorist attacks. The ban for all but one country is temporary lasting until a better system of vetting can be implemented. The terrorist have already used the refugees to launch attacks including the charlie hepdo attacks in Paris France.

Re: Immigrants

He did include "or science" in his post.  I don't suppose you're denying, that the first people settling in the western hemisphere came from somewhere else?
