Not so much those who want to reduce immigration because there might not be enough housing, jobs etc. but those who say "We were here first" or "Only people born here should live here," because most of the time you're descended from an immigrant.
I don't have a problem with xenophobia in general, I just really hate the stupid reasons people give for being xenophobic.
Yeah. I don't get that either. I'm against illegal immigration, but not immigration in general. You want to live in this country? We have a process for doing so. Follow that. Granted, it needs reform. However, you don't just ignore the system you don't agree with. You abide by the law while protesting to change it.
But being against immigration in general is stupid. We import the cars you drive, the toys your kids play with, etc. Why can't we import your neighbors, too?
