USA, as a nation, has been 'open for business'; it's time for USA to be 'open for all', to go beyond free trade toward freedom for all people to join our democracy if they want to, to live here, to join us in struggling to live well, justly and to live sustainably in this part of earth.

Thanks Brian! We know people everywhere can identify with what it means to have to move and migrate for opportunity and for a better life. And since we are in this together, the first step is to understand one another and the values that bring us together in community. Help us reach more people and share the video. Thank you!

We are in crisis now because our citizens cannot all take care of themselves.. Allowing everyone to come would tax our resources to the breaking point, possibly taking to a national meltdown.. I am not anti immigration, I'm pro United States.. Everyone in the 'New World' is American.. What we are really talking about is The United States of America..

Immigrants who cross the borders illegally are ILLEGAL AND UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS. It's a fact, so get over it. Little cry babies.

You know there are so many children born with an immagrant parent and are sometimes deported leaving one parent to try and work and raise ths child alone. and when they have to turn to help from the government for help to feed there child. a lot of people get B&*chie about them going for help. If the other parent was here and working and providing for there family there wouldn't be so much hateful people putting them down. and sapporting them for the good that they do for there own.

When one chooses to immigrate to the US or any country illegally; that person runs the risk of deportation. They should take this into account and think about the effect it will have on their children and spouse before it happens. If they chose to take the risk, then have a Plan B in place for the remaining spouse to be able to support the family without the help of the taxpayers.

This problem of the so-called illegal immigrantts is a worldwide phenomenom. USA is but one of the theatreswhere this drama is being staged. There are millions of human beings branded as 'illegal' in the countries where they reside just be4cause they do not have the right document. Most if not all of them are mere victims of, by now, a global scenario of human migration. Victims of war, political persecutions,
poverty and hunger. Depriving them of rights is criminal. They, like all human...

There are millions of human beings branded as 'illegal' in the countries where they reside just be4cause they do not have the right document. Most if not all of them are mere victims of, by now, a global scenario of human migration. Victims of war, political persecutions,
poverty and hunger. Depriving them of rights is criminal. They, like all human being has rights, and negating them of this rights is driving them deeper into misery, not of their own making.

Absolutely! It is horrific that people are forced to suffer so, every day, in countries all over our planet. Every border should be torn down and every boundary should be removed. We are all one race. The human race. It's time we realised that and celebrated our fascinating diversity so we can live in harmony. I know. I know. Humans, are an aggressive territorial lot. But, geez! If only we could stop being so SELFISH. So .... Can't think of the word I'm looking for.... Nationality...

I am Scottish. I'm happy and sometimes a bit proud about it. But, I think that's just like loving your family in a deeper way than anyone else. It doesn't stop my genuine love and respect for others. I know we should all treat each other with respect and compassion. We ARE all the same species. Isn't the diversity exciting and fascinating and aren't the similarities comforting and forever to be celebrated and enjoyed - together?

The immigrants themselves are the ones who are separating families by choosing to come over illegally. That is the risk they take when they chose to come over illegally. The child whose parent is deported has only that parent to blame, not immigration agents for doing their job.

It's better to be happy and generous than proud. Canada is a wonderful place but as a Glawegian Kelly I don't feel pride. Just happy.

I think America is a wonderful and unique country with many different cultures . America should give a chance for those who really needs the citizenship because it could change their life in many ways

I agree Dave. I love America. Have family there. On the whole it is a great place. Like most other places on earth though, it has its bigots and Zenophobes. Nowhere is a perfect place unfortunately.
