Oh, boy. More insults!

### Huh?


I have stated many, many times, that I think that ANYONE and EVERYONE with a

legitimate MD shoukd be able to come here to the USA. In fact, I have
suggested PAYING them large sums of money to come here. I have suggested
building medical schools in 3rd worlds so we can get MORE M.D.s here. The
same thing goes for PhD's or even for *legitimate* students who want to
study for a PhD here, and already have a *good* degree.

### Good. Here we agree - persons with skills useful in the American economy
should not be prevented from joining the job market here, certainly not to
protect anybody's six-figure income from competition.

You are wrong about immigrants in general being a plus for America, or for me.

Never said unregulated or poorly regulated immigration is good for any country.

----- Randy:

But I see I cannot discuss this with you rationally because you cannot separate the issue from yuor emotions.
