Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

A Potential Drawback of Mexican Immigration and How to Overcome It

One potential difference between today's immigration and that of the last wave is that today's immigration comes largely from one country. This is probably due to the fact that immigration is more easily restricted when it's by boat. I suspect that free immigration would produce more diverse immigrants.

So if you're against Mexicans (or Canadians) being an excessive percentage of the American population, you should favor more open borders.

I'd like to see some links to where you've defined your terms. I may be substantially in agreement with you, but I have no doubt I am among those you willfully slander as "anti-immigration". Does "open immigration" mean making legal immigration easier? I'm strongly in favor of that, and there might even be a majority in favor of that. You do give kind of an immpression that you are in favor of that bill everyone is talking about, and that you are calling everyone who opposes it for whatever reason "anti-immigration" when they are in fact without exception "pro-immigration", as if dissagreeing with you about particulars of how immigration laws should be written and enforced is -inherently- anti-immigration.

(I'm a little touchy about missrepresentation)
