Your interpretation of the contents of that article is proof of a failed education system.  You Schlubby.  Yes.  You.

Our system also makes it extremely difficult for highly skilled, educated, fluent English-speaking foreign nationals to legally immigrate to the United States.

Christ, we didn't even have a passport system until 1915, IIRC. You could go to pretty much any friendly county and set up shop, pay their taxes.  Citizenship was kinda moot. I guess now with all the entitlement programs, there would be too many mooches making citizenship necessary

So, with St. Patrick's Day coming up, the POTUS is talking to Irish delegates that consider U.S. immigration reform a priority, so the president acknowledges the 50k+ illegal Irish in the U.S... How dare he not tell a bunch of pasty milk skinned gingers that only brown people are able to be here illegally... or something.

Let's do a quick politics tab review on immigration:  Brown people are taking our jobs.  Fundie Germans that want to home school their kids are deserving of a free pass through all the red tape to immigrate here.  No one cares about the Irish.

If you want to meet the undocumented Irish, just shake hands with that NYC bartender with that cute accent that you love.

You think there aren't illegal Irish in America today?

Hire a contractor or a landscaper in South Boston and talk to the general laborers.

Or visit the Cape in the summer and notice you cleans your room or buses your table.

FTFA: "President Obama said too many undocumented Irish were denied the chance to contribute to society as they were not able to pay taxes through the tax system. "

If you use a fake SSN to get a job then you do pay taxes that you will never be able to get back as benefits. The social security benefits from this free money.

I don't think immigration is a problem. And I don't think we should get rid of entitlements, but we certainly need to cut back! We're going broke, once out creditors start (Beijing did cut our credit rating for financing debt with debt) cutting back on our line of credit it will happen -- either though cuts or by inflation though printing of money.

But is interesting to think about another time, when travel and where you choose to live was less restricted.

Yea, people recently have been making the US out to be a bunch of hardasses. The US does have some of the most liberal immigration policies in the world. It's amazing how successful they have been at manipulating public perception for their political ends.

You know, some of the newly arrive Irish can be a little difficult to understand.  And some of the those, who have been here 5 or 10 years, are still difficult to understand.

/No, I'm not Irish.

I think we should let in more people. I want the best and the brightest here. I used to deal with land investments, 3/4 of my clients were born somewhere else and most were self employed  I wish we could have more people that industrious. Even the low skilled contractors.

You want to work, come here. I rather you be here than your piece of shiat homeland.

Irish on the Cape are J-1 students. They go home. 1980's was peak Irish time then their economy was good. Brazilians came next, never left and refuse to learn English. Recent J-1s are mostly Eastern Europeans. They mostly go home. Belorussians can get a Green Card easily.
2 Russians and 2 Ukrainians are due this summer for housekeeping. Sending a photo with a C/V is common.
