You can't have background checks with open borders. That's why I've stated repeatedly that we shouldn't have open borders. Refer to my first post on this thread if you need more clarification on that. You seem to be under the impression that I don't want any legal requirements. If that is the case, then you haven't been reading my posts. 1) Those two things are not mutually exclusive. 2) If any member of "world's poorest" can pass a background check and show that they can either support themselves or have someone here who is willing to support them until they get on their feet, there is no ethical, rational or economic reason for denying them entry. I'll try again: Criminal background checks good. Country-of-origin quotes and other arbitrary restrictions bad. That's what I've been arguing from my first post on this thread. Cool. I'll let you know if I need any more non sequiturs. I'm full up right now though.
