Immigration & World Poverty

Does US Immigration Help Fight World Poverty?
I believe there must be people that believe that mass immigration into the USA will help world poverty. At the current time the USA allows one million people legal immigration per year. This is a very interesting video that discusses the impact of immigration on world poverty, and suggests how best to combat world poverty.

If we have 1,000,000 legal immigrants per year, I wonder how many illegal immigrants we have each year.

Illegal Immigrants
Here’s some interesting information about illegal immigrants:

  • Each year, approximately 500,000 illegal immigrants enter the US.
  • In 2008, there was approximately 11,000,000 illegal immigrants in the USA. Other estimates go as high as 20,000,000.
  • In 2008, the illegal immigrants gave birth to 4,000,000 children.

I don’t know how you feel, but this looks like a problem that should have high priority by our government!

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
We had a really hot summer this past year. I’m thinking that we may have a cold winter, too. I hope I’m wrong, but I have a gut feeling that it’s going to be bitter cold this winter. Brrr.

Joke of the Day

The light turned yellow, just in front of him. He did the right thing, stopping at the crosswalk, even though he could have beaten the red light by accelerating through the intersection.

The tailgating woman was furious and honked her horn, screaming in frustration, as she missed her chance to get through the intersection, dropping her cell phone and makeup.

As she was still in mid-rant, she heard a tap on her window and looked up into the face of a very serious police officer. The officer ordered her to exit her car with her hands up.

He took her to the police station where she was searched, fingerprinted, photographed, and placed in a holding cell.

After a couple of hours, a policeman approached the cell and opened the door. She was escorted back to the booking desk where the arresting officer was waiting with her personal effects.

He said, ''I'm very sorry for this mistake. You see, I pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your horn, flipping off the guy in front of you and cussing a blue streak at him. I noticed the 'What Would Jesus Do' bumper sticker, the 'Choose Life' license plate holder, the 'Follow Me to Sunday-School' bumper sticker, and the chrome-plated Christian fish emblem on the trunk, so naturally.. .I assumed you had stolen the car.''
