go home and get in line. — Donald J. Trump

Legal Immigration Sayings By Gary Becker: I argued last year on my shared blog that selling the right to immigrate would I argued last year on my shared blog that selling the right to immigrate would be the best approach to legal immigration.

Paying for the right to immigrate would also negate the argument that immigrants get a free ride when they gain health care and other benefits.

Legal Immigration Sayings By Aviva Chomsky: Like other discriminatory legislation in our country's history, immigration laws define and differentiate legal status Like other discriminatory legislation in our country's history, immigration laws define and differentiate legal status on the basis of arbitrary attributes.

Rather, people who break immigration laws do things that are perfectly legal for others, but denied to them
like crossing a border or, even more commonly, simply exist. — Aviva Chomsky
Legal Immigration Sayings By Himani Bannerji: It is interesting that the rhetoric and some state initiatives of multiculturalism in the West It is interesting that the rhetoric and some state initiatives of multiculturalism in the West are accompanied by the gathering strength of right wing politics....Everywhere in the West 'immigration,' a euphemistic expression for racist labor and citizenship policies, has become a major election platform....The media and some members of the Canadian intelligentsia speak in terms of the end of 'Canadian culture,' displaying signs of feeling threatened by these 'others,' who are portrayed as an invasive force. In the meantime, Western capital roves in a world without borders, with trade agreements such as GATT and NAFTA ensuring their legal predations, while labour from third world countries is both locked in their national spaces and locked out from Western countries, marked by a discourse of illegality and alienness. — Himani Bannerji

Most workers fled to avoid arrest; after all, they could end up in one of the new immigration prisons that Halliburton/KBR had been contracted to build for the federal government. — Naomi Klein

Legal Immigration Sayings By Valeria Luiselli: Before the immigration crisis was declared in the summer of 2014, minors seeking immigration relief Before the immigration crisis was declared in the summer of 2014, minors seeking immigration relief were given approximately twelve months to find a lawyer to represent their case before their first court hearing. But when the crisis was declared and Obama's administration created the priority juvenile docket, that window was reduced to twenty-one days. In real and practical terms, what the creation of that priority docket meant was that the cases involving unaccompanied minors from Central America were grouped together and moved to the top of the list of pending cases in immigration court. Being moved to the top of a list, in this context, was the least desirable thing - at least from the point of view of the children involved. Basically, the priority juvenile docket implied that deportation proceedings against them were accelerated by 94 percent, and that both they and the organizations that normally provided legal representation now had much less time to build a defense. — Valeria Luiselli
