View Full Version : The Puzzle of American Immigration Policies

Sorry if this is an obvious question, but I can't figure it out.

In Europe (say, Denmark) people get fed up with immigration, they vote for the appropriate party and they effectively put a stop to it.

But in USA, there seems to be a discrepancy between what people want (and from what I gather a majority wants a stop to immigration) and what the elites want. The motives of the elites are more or less understandable.

But how come people of USA can't get their wishes done?

Eh ? :confused:

Not seen a party stop immigration into the UK yet, even though we're clearly full to the brim.

It's not as simple as just stopping immigration. (as it isn't here)

The US has huge borders that'd cost an exorbitant amount to police and large parts of the economy that basically run on really cheap illegal labour.

Because in USA, there is a huge discrepancy between what people want and what the elites want in pretty much every issue, and the motives of the elites are more or less driven by profits ... and by that I mean our policitians geniuenely do not care in the slightest in their constituants. We really are nothing but election year pawns.
