Immigration quotes by Orhan Pamuk
#3. Istanbul is certainly in the process of transforming itself into an attractive cultural, tourist and financial center. But there are also millions of sad stories in this giant sea of immigration, poverty, misery and contradictions. So much anger, frustration and fury. #Quote by Orhan Pamuk

Immigration quotes by Anonymous
#6. The Catholic Church also opposes any effort to make it easier to deport children; last week, the archbishop of Chicago, Cardinal Francis E. George, said he had offered facilities in his diocese to house some of the children, and on Monday, bishops in Dallas and Fort Worth called for lawyers to volunteer to represent the children at immigration proceedings. "We have to put our money where our mouth is in this country," said Kevin Appleby, the director of migration policy for the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. "We tell other countries to protect human rights and accept refugees, but when we get a crisis on our border, we don't know how to respond." Republicans have rejected calls by Democrats for $2.7 billion in funds to respond to the crisis, demanding changes in immigration law to make it easier to send children back to Central America. And while President Obama says he is open to some changes, many Democrats have opposed them, and Congress is now deadlocked. #Quote by Anonymous
Immigration quotes by Pratheepan Gulasekaram
#7. The 1790 Naturalization law determined that "free white persons" could naturalize after two years of residency, and established that the children of citizens would also be citizens. Soon after, in 1795, Congress extended the residency period to five years, and in 1798 extended the residency requirement even further, to fourteen years. #Quote by Pratheepan Gulasekaram
Immigration quotes by Richard Benjamin
#8. If I were an immigrant Latino not born in the US, I could not have written Searching for Whitopia: An Improbably Journey to the Heart of America book. And that is because many of the Whitopians would not have been comfortable talking about their views on immigration, talking about their views on taxes. And they wouldn't have spilled to me the new script on race and poverty as they did. #Quote by Richard Benjamin
Immigration quotes by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
#9. Maybe next year the government might impose some immigration rules on the academy. Two Mexicans in a row is suspicious. [On Mexican immigrants in the US] I hope they can be treated with respect of the ones who came before and built this incredible immigrant nation. #Quote by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
Immigration quotes by Jeff Sessions
#10. I didn't endorse Donald Trump but I thanked him for coming, thanked him for raising issues that were important, thanked him for talking about immigration and considering the views that we had worked on for a number of years, on what a good immigration policy should be. #Quote by Jeff Sessions
Immigration quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#11. I still am amazed by the reaction I get from people when I tell them that there was zero immigration in this country from 1924 to 1965. And the reason that people don't know that, A, they just don't know it, it's not reported, it's never been part of history class, history education. #Quote by Rush Limbaugh
Immigration quotes by Milton Friedman
#12. You had a flood of immigrants, millions of them, coming to this country. What brought them here? It was the hope for a better life for them and their children. And, in the main, they succeeded. It is hard to find any century in history, in which so large a number of people experience so great an improvement in the conditions of their life, in the opportunities open to them, as in the period of the 19th and early 20th century. #Quote by Milton Friedman
Immigration quotes by Himani Bannerji
#13. It is interesting that the rhetoric and some state initiatives of multiculturalism in the West are accompanied by the gathering strength of right wing politics....Everywhere in the West 'immigration,' a euphemistic expression for racist labor and citizenship policies, has become a major election platform....The media and some members of the Canadian intelligentsia speak in terms of the end of 'Canadian culture,' displaying signs of feeling threatened by these 'others,' who are portrayed as an invasive force. In the meantime, Western capital roves in a world without borders, with trade agreements such as GATT and NAFTA ensuring their legal predations, while labour from third world countries is both locked in their national spaces and locked out from Western countries, marked by a discourse of illegality and alienness. #Quote by Himani Bannerji
Immigration quotes by Durga Chew-Bose
#14. What tethers me to my parents is the unspoken dialogue we share about how much of my character is built on the connection I feel to the world they were raised in but that I've only experienced through photos, visits, food. It's not mine and yet, I get it. First-generation kids, I've always thought, are the personification of déjà vu. #Quote by Durga Chew-Bose
Immigration quotes by Charles Yu
#15. ......cut us off from our families, our history. So we made it our own place - Chinatown. A place for preservation and self-preservation; give them what they feel what's right, is safe; make it fit the idea of what is out there..Chinatown and indeed being chinese is and always has been, from the very beginning a construction,a performance of features, gestures, culture and exoticism, invention/reinvention of stylization. #Quote by Charles Yu
Immigration quotes by Marco Rubio
#16. Donald Trump is a world-class con artist. He conned all these people that signed up for Trump University. Now he's trying to do the same thing to Republican voters. He's trying to convince them that somehow he's the guy that is going to stand up to illegal immigration, but he hires illegal immigrants, that he's fighting for American workers, but he's hiring foreign workers for his hotels, that he's going to bring back jobs from China and from Mexico, but, in fact, he's creating jobs in China and Mexico, because that's where all of his suits and ties that he sells are made. #Quote by Marco Rubio
Immigration quotes by Ken Salazar
#17. The way Americans most understand the history of Latinos in this country, a lot of it is being told now through the lens of what's happening with the immigration debate. While that's an important debate that has security and moral implications, in my view, there's also a huge history of Latinos in the United States that's never been told. #Quote by Ken Salazar
Immigration quotes by Elizabeth Tambascio
#18. You can sit with us.
You can live beside us.
You can play your music.
You can listen to mine.
We can dance together.
We can share our food.
We can keep an eye on each other's kids.
We can teach each other new languages.
We can respect traditions.
We can build new ones.
You can ask for a cup of sugar.
You can ask for directions.
You can tell me when things are hard.
You can tell me when beautiful things happen.
We can listen to stories.
We can disagree.
We can agree.
We can come to understandings.
You can wear what you want.
You can pray as you feel compelled to.
You can love who you want.
You can sit with us. #Quote by Elizabeth Tambascio
Immigration quotes by Marco Rubio
#19. You cannot grant amnesty. If the American people see us granting amnesty they will never again believe in legal immigration. They will never again support it, and that's wrong for our country, bad for our future. #Quote by Marco Rubio
Immigration quotes by Philippe Falardeau
#20. Again, something that's very strange and odd, you will find sometimes that immigrants that have been here for many years and already have their citizenship might be the ones against additional immigration. We've seen that also. #Quote by Philippe Falardeau
Immigration quotes by Shane Claiborne
#21. When it comes to the big issues like immigration, everyone has a role. The government has a role. The church has a role. Every Christian has a role. #Quote by Shane Claiborne
Immigration quotes by Marco Rubio
#22. I think what's important for us to understand and there is a way forward on this issue that we an bring our country together on. And while I'm president I will do it. And it will begin by bringing illegal immigration under control and proving to the American people. #Quote by Marco Rubio
Immigration quotes by Ann Coulter
#23. In other words, under Attorney General John Ashcroft, the FBI, the INS and the Department of Justice are so out of control that they have actually begun to enforce U.S. immigration laws. #Quote by Ann Coulter
Immigration quotes by Thomas Sowell
#24. Someone once said that many bad policies are just good policies that have been carried too far. For example, we have taken tolerance to such an extreme that we tolerate the immigration into our country of millions of intolerant people who hate millions of Americans who are already here. #Quote by Thomas Sowell
Immigration quotes by Jeff Sessions
#25. We know that a ready amnesty tends to be an invitation to more illegal entries. #Quote by Jeff Sessions
Immigration quotes by Vicente Fox
#26. I mean, we must act with intelligence. We must work on this framework, so that immigration becomes an asset to both nations. Believe me, what - just the Mayor Bloomberg said here in New York, that this city would be stopped, totally stopped if it were not by the immigrants working here. #Quote by Vicente Fox
Immigration quotes by Charles Schumer
#27. I think on this issue more than any other we're going to see sort of a bipartisan longing to get something done, and hopefully you're not going to find the fisticuffs that you would find on lots of other issues. I think you'll be able to glean a sense of progress without us revealing the specifics. #Quote by Charles Schumer
Immigration quotes by Sam Brownback
#28. Immigration is a volatile issue, but we're in the middle of it now, and probably the worst thing to do is to not do anything. Everybody recognizes the current system is not working the way we want it to work. It has huge flaws to it; need to do something. #Quote by Sam Brownback
Immigration quotes by Stephen Vincent Benet
#29. Remember that when you say 'I will have none of this exile and this stranger for his face is not like my face and his speech is strange,' you have denied America with that word. #Quote by Stephen Vincent Benet
Immigration quotes by Jeb Bradley
#30. I'm not saying we need to stop immigration at all; people can come from wherever. #Quote by Jeb Bradley

Immigration quotes by Charlie Munger
#32. We have never had the will to enforce the immigration laws. What you see is what you'll continue to get. #Quote by Charlie Munger
Immigration quotes by Donella H. Meadows
#33. Carter also was trying to deal with a flood of illegal immigrants from Mexico. He suggested that nothing could be done about that immigration as long as there was a great gap in opportunity and living standards between the United States and Mexico. Rather than spending money on border guards and barriers, he said, we should spend money helping to build the Mexican economy, and we should continue to do so until the immigration stopped. #Quote by Donella H. Meadows
Immigration quotes by Ann Coulter
#34. When it comes to immigration, the journalist's motto is: The public can't be trusted with the truth. #Quote by Ann Coulter
Immigration quotes by Eric Cantor
#35. It is my hope that I can stand before you in two years and report back that our side, as well as the president's, found within us the ability to set differences aside, to provide relief to so many millions of Americans who simply want their life to work again. #Quote by Eric Cantor
Immigration quotes by Clayton Cramer
#36. No matter what other nations may say about the United States, immigration is still the sincerest form of flattery. #Quote by Clayton Cramer
Immigration quotes by Jane Addams
#37. The essence of immorality is the tendency to make an exception of myself. #Quote by Jane Addams
Immigration quotes by Graham Nash

Immigration quotes by Mark M. Bello
#39. Change was, indeed, possible, one person at a time. #Quote by Mark M. Bello
Immigration quotes by Sharon Bala
#40. Did she now know what it was like to have so little agency? To be faced with such cruel options it was as if there was no choice at all? #Quote by Sharon Bala
Immigration quotes by James Joyce
#41. I smiled at him. America, I said quietly, just like that. What is it? The sweepings of every country including our own. Isn't that true? That's a fact. #Quote by James Joyce
Immigration quotes by Peter Brimelow
#42. I regard many of the neoconservatives as personal friends, but that's not stopped them from behaving with extraordinary viciousness towards those of us who raised the immigration issue. #Quote by Peter Brimelow
Immigration quotes by Barack Obama
#43. Independent economists say immigration reform will grow our economy and shrink our deficits by almost $1 trillion in the next two decades. And for good reason: when people come here to fulfill their dreams - to study, invent, and contribute to our culture - they make our country a more attractive place for businesses to locate and create jobs for everyone. So let's get immigration reform done this year. #Quote by Barack Obama
Immigration quotes by Corrine Brown
#44. Undoubtedly, there are numerous problems with the immigration system here in The United States. #Quote by Corrine Brown
Immigration quotes by Cathy McMorris Rodgers
#45. Everywhere I travel throughout Eastern Washington, I hear from people demanding we do a better job of controlling our borders and reducing illegal immigration. #Quote by Cathy McMorris Rodgers
Immigration quotes by Godfrey
#46. Immigrants have been coming here for a long time. The Americans that are afraid of others coming were immigrants once themselves, so they have a lot of nerve. We have a lot of nerve as a country. The only people that should have xenophobia are Native Americans. Everyone else should shut up. #Quote by Godfrey
Immigration quotes by Beverly Rycroft
#47. I'll tell you what I don't believe, Alwyn. I don't believe there's a pretty forest in the sky with castles and a white light and God and all his angels waiting to welcome all the good people in. And you and me standing there sick with nerves while they check us out to see if we've made the grade. That sounds too much like immigrating to Australia. #Quote by Beverly Rycroft
Immigration quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#48. This immigration business has been going on in the UK much in advance of the European Union making an issue of it. #Quote by Rush Limbaugh
Immigration quotes by Aleksandar Hemon
#49. Displacement results in a tenuous relationship with the past, with the self that used to exist and operate in a different place, where the qualities that constituted us were in no need of negotiation. Immigration is an ontological crisis because you are forced to negotiatet the conditions of your selfhood under pereptually changing existential circumstances. #Quote by Aleksandar Hemon
Immigration quotes by Mark Krikorian
#50. But it's more an up-versus-down issue because the research has shown that opinion leaders, whether they're elected officials, journalists, business leaders - it's academics, religious leaders - they have dramatically different views on immigration. A #Quote by Mark Krikorian
Immigration quotes by Anthony Romero
#51. When you've seen prejudice, you understand that we aren't finished, that we're still perfecting this American experiment. #Quote by Anthony Romero
Immigration quotes by Marco Rubio
#52. That may not be a majority position in my party, but that's down the road. You can't even begin that process until you prove to people - not just pass a law that says you're gonna bring illegal immigration under control. You're gonna have to do it and prove to people that it's working. #Quote by Marco Rubio
Immigration quotes by Mitt Romney
#53. I very firmly believe that we have to make sure that we enforce our borders, that we have an employment verification system, and that those people who have come here illegally do not get an advantage to become permanent residents, they do not get a special pathway. #Quote by Mitt Romney
Immigration quotes by Salil Shetty
#54. EU leaders must act over immigration #Quote by Salil Shetty
Immigration quotes by William J. Clinton
#55. It is a commonplace of American life that immigrants have made our country great and continue to make a very important contribution to the fabric of American life. But ... under the pressures we face today, we can't afford to lose control of our borders, or to take on new financial burdens, at a time when we are not adequately providing for the jobs, the health care, and the education of our own people. Therefore, immigration must be a priority for this administration. #Quote by William J. Clinton
Immigration quotes by Mitt Romney
#56. The United States needs to be made more appealing to legal immigrants. #Quote by Mitt Romney
Immigration quotes by Peter Brimelow
#57. I think Bush's immigration proposal is treason and he should be impeached. #Quote by Peter Brimelow
Immigration quotes by Jared Taylor
#58. Needless to say, what whites now think and say about race has undergone a revolution. In fact, it would be hard to find other opinions broadly held by Americans that have changed so radically. What whites are now expected to think about race can be summarized as follows: Race is an insignificant matter and not a valid criterion for any purpose - except perhaps for redressing wrongs done to non-whites. The races are equal in every respect and are therefore interchangeable. It thus makes no difference if a neighborhood or nation becomes non-white or if white children marry outside their race. Whites have no valid group interests, so it is illegitimate for them to attempt to organize as whites. Given the past crimes of whites, any expression of racial pride is wrong. The displacement of whites by non-whites through immigration will strengthen the United States. These are matters on which there is little ground for disagreement; anyone who holds differing views is not merely mistaken but morally suspect.
By these standards, of course, most of the great men of America's past are morally suspect, and many Americans are embarrassed to discover what our traditional heroes actually said. Some people deliberately conceal this part of our history. For example, the Jefferson Memorial has the following quotation from the third president inscribed on the marble interior: "Nothing is more certainly written in the book of fate than that these people [the Negroes] shall be free." Jeffers #Quote by Jared Taylor
Immigration quotes by Bangambiki Habyarimana
#59. I asked a man who took a death boat to Europe across the treachelous waters of the Mediterranean from Libya
"Why are you taking this death boat".
"I am already dead." He said. This is my coffin. If I succeed to get to the other side, I get a new life. If I fail, I loose nothing. I remain what I am now: Dead. #Quote by Bangambiki Habyarimana
Immigration quotes by Mark McKinnon
#60. Immigration is the most explosive issue I've seen in my political career. #Quote by Mark McKinnon
Immigration quotes by Zadie Smith
#61. No fiction, no myths, no lies, no tangled webs - this is how Irie imagined her homeland. Because homeland is one of the magical fantasy words like unicorn and soul and infinity that have now passed into language. #Quote by Zadie Smith
Immigration quotes by Harsimrat Kaur Badal
#62. Britain needs to change its immigration system - and the only way to do that is to vote Leave. #Quote by Harsimrat Kaur Badal
Immigration quotes by Firas Alkhateeb
#63. As part of his administrative reforms, Suleiman lowered taxes on peasants in his Empire. This led to immigration of Christian peasants who left the rest of Europe to live and work in the Ottoman Empire. #Quote by Firas Alkhateeb
Immigration quotes by Robert Kennedy
#64. Our attitude towards immigration reflects our faith in the American ideal. We have always believed it possible for men and women who start at the bottom to rise as far as the talent and energy allow. Neither race nor place of birth should affect their chances. #Quote by Robert Kennedy
Immigration quotes by Stephen Ambrose
#65. Immigrants do more than help us win our wars, or set up cleaning shops or ethnic restaurants. #Quote by Stephen Ambrose
Immigration quotes by Giannina Braschi
#66. We were fighting for them in wars against people that we had more in common with than with the United States of Banana. #Quote by Giannina Braschi
Immigration quotes by Juan Felipe Herrera
#67. All voices are important, and yet it seems that people of color have a lot to say, particularly if you look through the poetry of young people - a lot of questions and a lot of concerns about immigration and security issues, you name it - big questions. #Quote by Juan Felipe Herrera
Immigration quotes by Margaret Hodge
#68. Migration is a feature of globalisation. You can't stop it; so every time a political party says it is going to be tough on immigration, it fails to deliver and loses trust. #Quote by Margaret Hodge
Immigration quotes by Karl Wiggins
#69. The Home Office informs us that there are around 400 ex-offenders from overseas currently seeking refuge in this country. One geezer, who has 78 offences to his name, managed to escape deportation on the grounds that he's an alcoholic! Drinking alcohol, it seems, is illegal in his homeland, so because he claims he'll be persecuted and tortured we've said, "Oh, bad show, old chap. Tough call that. Enjoy a spot of scotch myself from time to time. Quite understandable. Well why don't you stay here at our expense? You'll be able to fondle and grope any woman you like. We'd never deport you for that, I can assure you. You'll be perfectly safe here. #Quote by Karl Wiggins
Immigration quotes by Ami Bera
#70. Our nation is built upon a history of immigration, dating back to our first pioneers, the Pilgrims. For more than three centuries, we have welcomed generations of immigrants to our melting pot of hyphenated America: British-Americans; Italian-Americans; Irish-Americans; Jewish-Americans; Mexican-Americans; Chinese-Americans; Indian-Americans. #Quote by Ami Bera
Immigration quotes by Marco Rubio
#71. We have a legal immigration system that's outdated, it's primarily based on whether you have family members living here. In the 21st century, it has to be more of a merit-based system, and that is why our legal immigration system is in need of modernization. #Quote by Marco Rubio
Immigration quotes by Edward Snowden
#72. There is, simply, no way, to ignore privacy. Because a citizenry's freedoms are interdependent, to surrender your own privacy is really to surrender everyone's. You might choose to give it up out of convenience, or under the popular pretext that privacy is only required by those who have something to hide. But saying that you don't need or want privacy because you have nothing to hide is to assume that no one should have, or could have to hide anything – including their immigration status, unemployment history, financial history, and health records. You're assuming that no one, including yourself, might object to revealing to anyone information about their religious beliefs, political affiliations and sexual activities, as casually as some choose to reveal their movie and music tastes and reading preferences. Ultimately, saying that you don't care about privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different from saying you don't care about freedom of speech because you have nothing to say. Or that you don't care about freedom of the press because you don't like to read. Or that you don't care about freedom of religion because you don't believe in God. Or that you don't care about the freedom to peaceably assemble because you're a lazy, antisocial agoraphobe. Just because this or that freedom might not have meaning to you today doesn't mean that that it doesn't or won't have meaning tomorrow, to you, or to your neighbor – or to the crowds of principled dissidents I was follo #Quote by Edward Snowden
Immigration quotes by Nadeem Aslam
#73. As in Lahore, a road in this town is named after Goethe. There is a Park Street here as in Calcutta, a Malabar Holl as in Bombay, and a Naag Tolla Hill as in Dhaka. Because it was difficult to pronounce the English names, the men who arrived in this town in the 1950s had rechristened everything they saw before them. They had come from across the Subcontinent, lived together ten to a room, and the name that one of them happened to give to a street or landmark was taken up by the others, regardless of where they themselves were from. But over the decades, as more and more people came, the various nationalities of the Subcontinent have changed the names according to the specific country they themselves are from – Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Sri Lankan. Only one name has been accepted by every group, remaining unchanged. It's the name of the town itself. Dasht-e-Tanhaii.
The Wilderness of Solitude.
The Desert of Loneliness. #Quote by Nadeem Aslam
Immigration quotes by Gustavo Arellano
#74. Your life depends on a random stranger who could kill you, will probably disrespect you, and will most likely pay you much less than you deserve. But even those prospects are better than the ones you used to have. This is the life of los jornaleros – the day laborers. #Quote by Gustavo Arellano
Immigration quotes by Donald Trump
#75. I said, the pope is saying bad things about me the day before the election? And then I gathered myself, and I realized that it had to do with illegal immigration, that he was opposed to my measures, which is basically creating a border. #Quote by Donald Trump
Immigration quotes by Randy Newman
#76. In England, in France, in no other country would a black man have a chance to get elected. There's no two ways about it. Our country [USA] has been better about dealing with immigration and people who are different from each other than any other country in the world, that I know of. #Quote by Randy Newman
Immigration quotes by Marco Rubio
#77. Conservatism has always been about reforming government and solving problems, and that's why the conservative movement should lead on immigration reform. #Quote by Marco Rubio
Immigration quotes by Morrissey
#78. It could be construed that the reason I wouldn't wish to live in England is the immigration explosion. And that's not true at all. #Quote by Morrissey
Immigration quotes by Jimmy Fallon
#79. Arizona just became the 15th state to approve medical marijuana. So I give it three days before they stop caring about the whole immigration thing. #Quote by Jimmy Fallon
Immigration quotes by Jimmy Fallon
#80. While he was in Utah, Obama discussed immigration reform with leaders of the Mormon Church. Obama introduced the first lady. Then the church's president introduced HIS first lady. And his second lady. And his third, fourth, and fifth ladies. #Quote by Jimmy Fallon
Immigration quotes by Mark M. Bello
#81. Then let's get to work. Sarin…shit! We must stop these guys…again."
The men nodded, stone-faced. Was it really déjà vu all over again? #Quote by Mark M. Bello
Immigration quotes by Mark Steyn
#82. It was not "ironic" that the most liberal country in western Europe should be so eager to descend into a revoltingly illiberal servitude. It was entirely foreseeable. Justifying extraordinary levels of mass immigration first as narrowly defined economic self-interest and then as moral vanity, Europe made its principal source of new Europeans a population whose primal identity derived from a belief system that claimed total jurisdiction over every aspect of their lives. They were then amazed to discover that that same population of new "Europeans" assumed that all European social, cultural, and political life should realign itself with that belief system. Perhaps they should have considered that possibility earlier...the European establishment unwittingly eased the transition from "multicultural tolerance" to the more explicitly unicultural and intolerant regimes that followed. #Quote by Mark Steyn
Immigration quotes by Scott Walker
#83. There is international criminal organizations penetrating our southern based borders, and we need to do something about it. Secure the border, enforce the law, no amnesty, and go forward with the legal immigration system that gives priority to American working families and wages. #Quote by Scott Walker
Immigration quotes by Luis Alberto Urrea
#84. If only Mexico paid their workers a decent wage. #Quote by Luis Alberto Urrea
Immigration quotes by John Palfrey
#85. For many citizens, libraries are the one place where the information they need to be engaged in civic life is truly available for free, requiring nothing more than the time to walk into a branch. The reading room of a public library is the place where a daily newspaper, a weekly newsmagazine, and a documentary film are all available for free. In many communities, the library's public lecture room is the only place to hear candidates for office comparing points of view or visiting professors explaining their work on climate change, immigration or job creation. That same room is often the only place where a child from a family without a lot of money can go to see a dramatic reading or a production of a Shakespeare play. (Another of these simple realities in most communities is that a big part of public librarians job is to figure out how to host the community's homeless in a safe and fair manner.) Democracies can work only if all citizens have access to information and culture that can help them make good choices, whether at the voting booth or in other aspects of public life. #Quote by John Palfrey
Immigration quotes by Michael Chertoff
#86. We don't really have the ability to enforce the law with respect to illegal work in this country in a way that's truly effective ... We haven't been able to require every employer to enter a system in which they check the work status of their employees and determine whether they're legal, and without that, we don't really have the ability to enforce the law with respect to illegal work in this country in a way that's truly effective. And that would be the single greatest additional weapon we could use if we're serious about tackling this problem. #Quote by Michael Chertoff
Immigration quotes by Vladimir Lorchenkov
#87. Then why do they come?"
Buonarroti shrugged his shoulders.
"Because things are in such a bad way in their homeland, they're ready to flee into a black hole in space, to a concentration camp, to the Sargasso Sea of international criminal brigands."
"Between the devil and the deep blue sea," said the new consul, demonstrating his knowledge of international idioms. #Quote by Vladimir Lorchenkov
Immigration quotes by Anonymous
#88. This is a secret they won't tell but that I, in my shadowy fashion, have overheard - the more they speak of me and the less they do about me, the more popular they become. What geniuses! The louder they squabble, the brighter they shine! Wisely and with calculating cunning, they have reached a tacit agreement - that, when it comes to immigration, there will be no common agreement. #Quote by Anonymous
Immigration quotes by Duncan Hunter
#89. I think in the U.S., the border fence is no longer an immigration issue primarily; it's a security issue. #Quote by Duncan Hunter
Immigration quotes by Stephen J. O'Brien
#90. The cause of these great extinctions, the most extensive in the seventy-million-year record for mammals, is a mystery. The two prevailing guesses, climatic environmental pressure or the destruction caused by human immigration in these regions, are at a stalemate. Nearly all regions of extinction were briefly inhabited by early humans, which is why some feel they played roles. I was not there at the time, so I can only speculate, but surely a global catastrophe of some sort triggered the cataclysm. #Quote by Stephen J. O'Brien
Immigration quotes by Nelson A. Miles
#91. No administration could stop the tidal wave of immigration that swept over the land; no political party could restrain or control the enterprise of our people, and no reasonable man could desire to check the march of civilization. #Quote by Nelson A. Miles
Immigration quotes by John Green
#92. Lady and gentleman, when my parents left Korea with nothing but the clothes on their backs and the considerable wealth they had amassed in the shipping business, they had a dream. They had a dream that one day amid the snowy hilltops of western North Carolina, their son would lose his virginity to a cheerleader in the woman's bathroom of a Waffle House just off the interstate. My parents have sacrificed so much for this dream! And that is why we must journey on, despite all trials and tribulations! Not for me and least of all for the poor cheerleader in question, but for my parents and indeed for all immigrants who came to his great nation in what they themselves could never have: CHEERLEADER SEX. #Quote by John Green
Immigration quotes by Virgil Goode
#93. If American citizens don't wake up and adopt the Virgil Goode position on immigration there will likely be many more Muslims elected to office and demanding the use of the Koran #Quote by Virgil Goode
Immigration quotes by Jan C. Ting
#94. Protecting national security amounts to looking for needles in a haystack. The work becomes more difficult if the haystack is larger. Restricting immigration generally, and illegal immigration in particular, limits growth in the haystack, and supports protection of national security. #Quote by Jan C. Ting
Immigration quotes by Dale Hanson Bourke
#95. Nativism is a movement that promotes favored status for established citizens or residents of a nation over newcomers or immigrants. Nativists typically oppose immigration and support restricting the legal status of specific ethnic groups because they view them as harming the culture of the host nation. #Quote by Dale Hanson Bourke
Immigration quotes by Erich Leinsdorf
#96. The President would usually talk to me about matters relating to the immigration problem. #Quote by Erich Leinsdorf
Immigration quotes by Sophie Hardach
#97. You think it's impossible to be a passive fighter? Well, sometimes fighting just means existing. Existing, not going away, and quietly biding your time. #Quote by Sophie Hardach
Immigration quotes by Jan Brewer
#98. I believe that Senate Bill 1070 lit America on fire. I think we've all realized exactly what the situation is. And the people of Arizona have lived with these porous borders and illegal immigration into our state and that people throughout America realize that. Everybody understands the problem except the president of the United States. #Quote by Jan Brewer
Immigration quotes by Robert M. Sapolsky
#99. Why should people in one part of the globe have developed collectivist cultures, while others went individualist? The United States is the individualism poster child for at least two reasons. First there's immigration. Currently, 12 percent of Americans are immigrants, another 12 percent are children of immigrants, and everyone else except for the 0.9 percent pure Native Americans descend from people who emigrated within the last five hundred years. And who were the immigrants? Those in the settled world who were cranks, malcontents, restless, heretical, black sheep, hyperactive, hypomanic, misanthropic, itchy, unconventional, yearning to be rich, yearning to be out of their damn boring repressive little hamlet, yearning. Couple that with the second reason - for the majority of its colonial and independent history, America has had a moving frontier luring those whose extreme prickly optimism made merely booking passage to the New World insufficiently novel - and you've got America the individualistic.
Why has East Asia provided textbook examples of collectivism? The key is how culture is shaped by the way people traditionally made a living, which in turn is shaped by ecology. And in East Asia it's all about rice. Rice, which was domesticated there roughly ten thousand years ago, requires massive amounts of communal work. Not just backbreaking planting and harvesting, which are done in rotation because the entire village is needed to harvest each family's rice. The United #Quote by Robert M. Sapolsky
Immigration quotes by Marco Rubio
#100. The immigration issue is a gateway issue for Hispanics, no doubt about it. #Quote by Marco Rubio
Immigration quotes by Luis Gutierrez
#101. I think the real, fundamental problem that the Republicans have is, 'How do we get meaner, how do we get nastier with immigrants, so that we can take a smaller group,' now apparently led by Senator Cruz - I mean, maybe he's gonna be the next Speaker of the House. Because it's quite clear that Mr. Boehner has no control over this conference. #Quote by Luis Gutierrez
Immigration quotes by Kiran Desai
#102. We think of immigration as a Western issue but, of course, it isn't. #Quote by Kiran Desai
Immigration quotes by Calvin Coolidge
#103. Whether one traces his Americanism back three centuries to the Mayflower, or three years to the steerage, is not half so important as whether his Americanism of today is real and genuine. No matter by what various crafts we came here, we are all now in the same boat. #Quote by Calvin Coolidge
Immigration quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#104. [Barak] Obama's immigration behavior, executive amnesty, this DREAMer stuff - everything he's doing - is outside the law. #Quote by Rush Limbaugh
Immigration quotes by Pat Paulsen
#105. All the problems we face in the United States today can be traced to an unenlightened immigration policy on the part of the American Indian. #Quote by Pat Paulsen
Immigration quotes by Jose Andres
#106. As legal residents, immigrants would contribute more in taxes, spend more at our businesses, start companies of their own and create more jobs. Immigration is not a problem for us to solve but an opportunity for America to seize. #Quote by Jose Andres
Immigration quotes by Patricia Briggs
#107. The conflict between the creatures of Native Lore and the immigration of the European preternatural hosts is hinted at in 'Blood Bound' and reflects the conflicts between the human immigrants and the Indian people who were already here. #Quote by Patricia Briggs
Immigration quotes by Charles Schumer
#108. No one believed [the 1986 amnesty for illegal aliens] was tough enough on illegal immigration, and it didn't give enough flexibility on future legal immigration. #Quote by Charles Schumer
Immigration quotes by Jeff Sessions
#109. I had not been involved in any way in planning the event in Mobile. My staff maybe, had really been contacted, but I had never talked to Donald Trump about him coming to Mobile, and I decided - I had something else to do but it became so clear that it was going to be such a big event that I should be there. And he had already adopted my immigration views, in large part, and he was saying things I thought were valuable, about immigration. #Quote by Jeff Sessions
Immigration quotes by Milton Friedman
#110. If you have free immigration, in the way we had it before 1914, everybody benefited. The people who were here benefited. The people who came benefited. Because nobody would come unless he, or his family, thought he would do better here than he would elsewhere. And, the new immigrants provided additional resources, provided additional possibilities for the people already here. So everybody can mutually benefit. #Quote by Milton Friedman
Immigration quotes by Jeb Bush
#111. A lot of conservatives, a big part of the Republican base don't like his position on common core, don't like his position on immigration. #Quote by Jeb Bush
Immigration quotes by A.E. Samaan
#112. The 1924 Immigration Restriction Act was the primary tool used by FDR to keep Jewish refugees from reaching US shores. #Quote by A.E. Samaan
Immigration quotes by Markham Shaw Pyle
#113. It was left to the Progressive movement in America (as to the Fabians in Britain) to promote eugenics, Prohibition, dietary fads, the compulsory sterilisation of those they deemed 'unfit', and preferential treatment in immigration law of 'Nordic' (and preferably Protestant) immigrants. #Quote by Markham Shaw Pyle
Immigration quotes by Mike Lee
#114. These guidelines contemplate a policy that will grant special benefits to illegal immigrants based on their unlawful presence in the country. #Quote by Mike Lee
Immigration quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
#115. What has happened to us in this country? If we study our own history, we find that we have always been ready to receive the unfortunate from other countries, and though this may seem a generous gesture on our part, we have profited a thousand fold by what they have brought us. #Quote by Eleanor Roosevelt
Immigration quotes by Gary Ackerman
#116. I'm in favor of immigration but we also need rules. #Quote by Gary Ackerman
Immigration quotes by Sarah McBride
#117. ...we all live our lives with multiple identities intersecting with one another, creating a mix of privileges and challenges that all people carry with us. Race, gender, economic background, religion, immigration status, family acceptance, and so much more create a complex matrix that sometimes erects obstacles but other times ensures support in overcoming barriers put in your way. #Quote by Sarah McBride
Immigration quotes by Rand Paul
#118. I'm for immigration reform. I think the system's horribly broken, and we need to do something about it. #Quote by Rand Paul
Immigration quotes by Mark Potok
#119. The people blocking buses in Murrieta, California, didn't come from radical groups, they were everyday Americans who were perfectly willing to frighten those children #Quote by Mark Potok
Immigration quotes by Pat Buchanan
#120. Either we abandon the utopian globalism of open borders and 'ally-ally-in-free' immigration or we lose the war on terrorism and our freedoms with it. #Quote by Pat Buchanan
Immigration quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#121. DULLARD, n. A member of the reigning dynasty in letters and life. The Dullards came in with Adam, and being both numerous and sturdy have overrun the habitable world. The secret of their power is their insensibility to blows; tickle them with a bludgeon and they laugh with a platitude. The Dullards came originally from Boeotia, whence they were driven by stress of starvation, their dullness having blighted the crops. For some centuries they infested Philistia, and many of them are called Philistines to this day. In the turbulent times of the Crusades they withdrew thence and gradually overspread all Europe, occupying most of the high places in politics, art, literature, science and theology. Since a detachment of Dullards came over with the Pilgrims in the _Mayflower_ and made a favorable report of the country, their increase by birth, immigration, and conversion has been rapid and steady. According to the most trustworthy statistics the number of adult Dullards in the United States is but little short of thirty millions, including the statisticians. The intellectual centre of the race is somewhere about Peoria, Illinois, but the New England Dullard is the most shockingly moral. #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Immigration quotes by Aleksander Kwasniewski
#122. However, I don't doubt that a wave of immigration will come to Poland. #Quote by Aleksander Kwasniewski
Immigration quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#123. Our immigration law sucks, and we need to redo the whole thing, comprehensive immigration reform. And what that's gonna be is anybody who wants to come and vote Democrat, we're gonna send 'em a limousine and bring 'em in. #Quote by Rush Limbaugh
Immigration quotes by Ted Cruz
#124. What I put forward was an amendment that would have temporarily halted immigration from high-risk terrorist countries, but would have started it up, but I wanted them to go through Global Entry, which is a program where we do background checks. #Quote by Ted Cruz
Immigration quotes by Jeff Sessions
#125. At least 99.92% of illegal immigrants and visa overstays without known crimes on their records did not face removal. #Quote by Jeff Sessions
Immigration quotes by Joe Arpaio
#126. Every two years for Congress, four years for President, illegal immigration comes out as a political issue. #Quote by Joe Arpaio
Immigration quotes by Virgil Goode
#127. As the American public continues to focus more intensely on illegal immigration and securing the nation's borders, the number of members of the House Immigration Reform Caucus continues to grow. #Quote by Virgil Goode
Immigration quotes by Mark Krikorian
#128. Of 472 civilian occupations defined by the Department of Commerce, only six are majority immigrant (legal and illegal). These six occupations account for 1 percent of the total U.S. workforce. Many jobs often thought to be overwhelmingly done by immigrants are in fact majority native-born: 51 percent of maids are U.S.-born, as are 63 percent of butchers and meat processors, and 73 percent of janitors. #Quote by Mark Krikorian
Immigration quotes by Kao Kalia Yang
#129. On the planes, we leaned our heads back against the tall headrests, closed our eyes to what we had known, and imagined futures for our children - not for ourselves, because we knew that we were too old to start anew and filled with too much sorrow, too many regrets. #Quote by Kao Kalia Yang
Immigration quotes by Michael Bennet
#130. There are many miles to go before we get this done ... But I have a feeling that ... we're going to have a big bipartisan vote for this in the end. My sense is that people are more optimistic than they've been in 20 years about addressing this problem. #Quote by Michael Bennet
Immigration quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#131. Pope Francis said the use of contraception could be justified in regions hit by the Zika virus; a stance that could reignite a debate over the church's prohibition of the use of condoms to stop the spread of the AIDS virus. The pope also criticized Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump as 'not Christian' for his immigration stance, and broke with his predecessors by suggesting that Catholic lawmakers are free to vote for same-sex marriage and civil unions if they want to. #Quote by Rush Limbaugh
Immigration quotes by Adam Schiff
#132. It's a huge gap in security, it's a huge problem we've had with our immigration system for many years. #Quote by Adam Schiff
Immigration quotes by Ben  Rhodes
#133. As we headed into the final year of the Obama presidency, we inhabited two distinct worlds. In one, we'd achieved a global climate change agreement, the Iran deal was being implemented, the economy was growing, twenty million people had signed up for healthcare, and Obama's approval rating was rising. In another, Republican presidential candidates were painting a picture of a dystopian nightmare of crime, rampant immigration, ISIL terrorism, and wage stagnation in America. Because the two realities were so far removed from each other, and because Obama wasn't running, it was hard to do anything but put our heads down and focus on what we could get done. #Quote by Ben Rhodes
Immigration quotes by Andrew Nikiforuk
#134. Bitumen, the new national staple, is redefining the character and destiny of Canada. Rapid development of the tar sands has created a foreign policy that favours the export of bitumen to the United States and lax immigration standards that champion the import of global bitumen workers. #Quote by Andrew Nikiforuk
Immigration quotes by Mike Coffman
#135. It's different when you talk about immigration in the abstract ... It's very different when you sit in front of a family, and [undocumented] children who grew up in this country, and who go to the same school you once went to ... They thought if we only enforce the law, people will self-deport ... It's not going to happen. The solution is not the status quo, or deportation when you're talking about breaking up families. #Quote by Mike Coffman
Immigration quotes by Moby
#136. For example, you can go on all the pro-life chat rooms and say you're an outraged right-wing voter and that you know that George Bush drove an ex-girlfriend to an abortion clinic and paid for her to get an abortion.Then you go to an anti-immigration website chat room and ask, What's all this about George Bush proposing amnesty for illegal aliens? #Quote by Moby
Immigration quotes by Shah Rukh Khan
#137. Whenever I start feeling too arrogant about myself, I always take a trip to the U.S. The immigration guys kick the star out of my stardom. #Quote by Shah Rukh Khan
Immigration quotes by Jeff Sessions
#138. Republican voters believe we should have a lawful system of immigration that serves the national interest. They don't believe we should enter into - commit the United States to further globalist policies that diminish the sovereignty and freedom of American to act in its own interest. #Quote by Jeff Sessions
Immigration quotes by A. Y. Jackson
#139. It's probably hard for anyone looking at my landscapes today to realize that I was once regarded as a rebel, a dangerous influence; that I've been told I was on the verge of insanity, that my painting was nothing but meaningless daubs. Lawren Harris, the man most responsible for drawing the Group of Seven together, was accused of something perilously close to treason - his paintings, said his severest critics, were discouraging immigration. #Quote by A. Y. Jackson
Immigration quotes by Woodrow Wilson
#140. We came to America, either ourselves or in the persons of our ancestors, to better the ideals of men, to make them see finer things than they had seen before, to get rid of the things that divide and to make sure of the things that unite. #Quote by Woodrow Wilson
Immigration quotes by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
#141. Ojiugo often asked, 'But are they treating you well? Are they treating you well?' as though the treatment was what mattered, rather than the blighted reality of it all, that he was in a holding center, about to be deported. Nobody behaved normally. They were all under the spell of his misfortune. #Quote by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Immigration quotes by Junot Diaz

Immigration quotes by Alice Clayton
#143. Have to keep those lawns as green as possible, even when there was a drought, you know. Or my smile and nod when Mrs. Snodgrass went on and on about a racy book that everyone was talking about but no one would admit to reading, when in fact I know every woman there had read it. I even smiled and nodded when Mr. Peterson lectured us about illegal immigration, when I knew for a fact that his nanny was undocumented. #Quote by Alice Clayton
Immigration quotes by Bob Goodlatte
#144. A guest worker program should help farmers who are willing to pay a fair wage for law-abiding, dependable workers - not punish them ... And for this reason I support replacing the H-2A program and implementing new policies that will bring our illegal agricultural workers out of the shadows, as a first step in the process of overhauling our nation's immigration system. #Quote by Bob Goodlatte
Immigration quotes by Fareed Zakaria
#145. America's growth historically has been fueled mostly by investment, education, productivity, innovation and immigration. The one thing that doesn't seem to have anything to do with America's growth rate is a brutal work schedule. #Quote by Fareed Zakaria
Immigration quotes by George J. Borjas
#146. What immigration really does is redistribute wealth away from workers toward employers. #Quote by George J. Borjas
Immigration quotes by Ali Master
#147. Americans need a fresh reminder of the amazing nation they have and the power of liberties I see so often taken for granted. #Quote by Ali Master
Immigration quotes by Scott Peters
#148. Comprehensive immigration reform would reduce the deficit and help grow the economy. #Quote by Scott Peters
Immigration quotes by William J. Clinton
#149. Our policy is guided by the principle that we will keep unauthorized aliens out of the United States, welcome legal immigrants, and protect refugees from harm. Our solutions rely on working in partnership with States and communities. #Quote by William J. Clinton
Immigration quotes by Hendrith Vanlon Smith  Jr
#150. Immigration is a necessary and good thing for our great nation. But it must be orderly and structured. It must be liberally embraced, yet conservatively managed. #Quote by Hendrith Vanlon Smith Jr
Immigration quotes by Ban Ki-moon
#151. Although more than 500 million maritime containers move around the world each year, accounting for 90 per cent of international trade, only 2 per cent are inspected. Strengthening customs and immigration systems is essential. #Quote by Ban Ki-moon
Immigration quotes by Jeff Sessions
#152. How many thousands of lives would be saved if we enforced our immigration laws, our guns laws, and our drug laws? Public safety is not being held hostage by the 'gun lobby,' but by the open borders lobby and the anti-law enforcement lobby. #Quote by Jeff Sessions
Immigration quotes by Jeff Sessions
#153. The largest untapped constituency in American politics are the 300 million American citizens who have been completely left out of the immigration debate. #Quote by Jeff Sessions
Immigration quotes by Kevin Bales
#154. The flow of people into the United States into slavery, it follows the other types of immigration into the United States, so people who are trying to build new lives, trying to build a better life. #Quote by Kevin Bales
Immigration quotes by Donald Trump
#155. Somebody said, well, it wouldn't have been any different. Well, it would have been. I am extremely, extremely tough on illegal immigration. I'm extremely tough on people coming into this country. I believe that if I were running things, I doubt those families would have - I doubt that those people would have been in the country. So there's a good chance that those people would not have been in our country. #Quote by Donald Trump
Immigration quotes by DaShanne Stokes
#156. Greatness is not measured by the walls we build but by the bridges. #Quote by DaShanne Stokes
Immigration quotes by Eric Hoffer
#157. It almost seems that nobody can hate America as much as native Americans. America needs new immigrants to love and cherish it. #Quote by Eric Hoffer
Immigration quotes by Jeff Sessions
#158. Thirty years people have been asking for a lawful system of immigration to end this lawlessness, and government on both parties have refused to give it to them. #Quote by Jeff Sessions
Immigration quotes by Mark M. Bello
#159. When the address was over, Blackwell stood at attention, saluted, and shouted aloud at the television. "God bless you, Mr. President!" The John victory was a victory for all white nationalists. "Make America pure again? Hell yeah!" he and his friends cheered. #Quote by Mark M. Bello
Immigration quotes by Duncan Hunter
#160. In 2006, the Secure Fence Act was signed into law, requiring the Department of Homeland Security to build upward of 700 miles of double layered fencing along the U. S-Mexico border. While the Obama administration is quick to state that the targets have been met, only a small fraction - in fact, less than 40 miles - of the newly implemented infrastructure is double-layered. #Quote by Duncan Hunter
Immigration quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#161. [Emigrants] will bring with them the principles of the governments they leave, imbibed in their early youth; or, if able to throw off, it will be in exchange for an unbounded licentiousness, passing, as is usual, from one extreme to another. It would be a miracle were they to stop precisely at the point of temperate liberty. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Immigration quotes by Imbolo Mbue
#162. As far as Immigration is concerned, there are many things that are illegal and many that are gray, and by 'gray' I mean the things that are illegal but which the government doesn't want to spend time worrying about. You understand me, abi? My advice to someone like you is to always stay close to the gray area and keep yourself and your family safe. Stay away from any place where you can run into police- that's the advice I give to you and to all young black men in this country. The police is for the protection of white people, my brother. Maybe black women and black children sometimes, but not black men. Never black men' (74). #Quote by Imbolo Mbue
Immigration quotes by Jordan B. Peterson
#163. Tenets of a viable 21st century conservatism

1. The fundamental assumptions of Western civilization are valid.

2. Peaceful social being is preferable to isolation and to war. In consequence, it justly and rightly demands some sacrifice of individual impulse and idiosyncrasy.

3. Hierarchies of competence are desirable and should be promoted.

4. Borders are reasonable. Likewise, limits on immigration are reasonable. Furthermore, it should not be assumed that citizens of societies that have not evolved functional individual-rights predicated polities will hold values in keeping with such polities.
5. People should be paid so that they are able and willing to perform socially useful and desirable duties.

6. Citizens have the inalienable right to benefit from the result of their own honest labor.

7. It is more noble to teach young people about responsibilities than about rights.

8. It is better to do what everyone has always done, unless you have some extraordinarily valid reason to do otherwise.

9. Radical change should be viewed with suspicion, particularly in a time of radical change.

10. The government, local and distal, should leave people to their own devices as much as possible.

11. Intact heterosexual two-parent families constitute the necessary bedrock for a stable polity.

12. We should judge our political system in comparison to other actual p #Quote by Jordan B. Peterson
Immigration quotes by Oscar Handlin
#164. In times of shrinking expectations, ... everyone feels like a victim and pushes away outsiders to defend his own corner. #Quote by Oscar Handlin
Immigration quotes by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
#165. Immigration was a huge force in changing my outlook. I moved to America 30 years ago. I had to reassess my beliefs, especially about women's roles. #Quote by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
Immigration quotes by Barack Obama
#166. When we think about immigration, we have to understand there are folks all around the world who still see America as the land of promise. And they provide us energy, and they provide us innovation. And they start companies like Intel and Google, and we want to encourage that. #Quote by Barack Obama
Immigration quotes by Daniel Tosh
#167. Spelling is difficult because there are too many rules. Silent letters only exist to make it harder for illegal immigrants to learn English. #Quote by Daniel Tosh
Immigration quotes by Oliver Markus Malloy
#168. Would Jesus build a wall? Would Mother Teresa? No, of course not. They would welcome the refugees and give them free universal healthcare. #Quote by Oliver Markus Malloy
Immigration quotes by Romano L. Mazzoli
#169. Our asylum system is sick. #Quote by Romano L. Mazzoli
Immigration quotes by William J. Clinton
#170. Most illegal immigrants are not by nature lawbreakers. Most are looking for the chance to live in dignity. Nevertheless we must continue to discourage illegal immigration for it undermines control of our borders ... and even more punishes hard-working people who play by the rules and who wait for their turn to come to the United States. Therefore we must enforce our laws, but we will do so with justice and fairness. #Quote by William J. Clinton
Immigration quotes by Mitchell Heisman
#171. The land of opportunity", "The American dream", "Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness": these are the sounds of the great sucking mechanism of the American parasite. The reliance of seduction and persuasion over coercion that sold democracy to the American people eventually sold it to the rest of the world. Although there are a minority of examples of the direct parasitism of involuntary immigration, especially slaves from Africa and the "legal" incorporation of Native Americans, voluntary immigration through the lure of freedom and and equality is only a more indirect form of parasitic predation. What is voluntary can be no less predatory than coercion, just as capitalism can be no less predatory than military imperialism. From the point of view of competition among nations, the point is not whether a citizen or their ancestor originally arrived voluntarily or involuntarily, but whether a nation or ideology is successful in harnessing its human resources towards its national interest or way of life. American parasitism works because it offers the secular Judaism of liberalism rather than the secular Christianity of communism. Communism could never compete with the immigrant American hope that they themselves might one day be a filthy rich capitalist. #Quote by Mitchell Heisman
Immigration quotes by Neal Shusterman
#172. The Statue of Liberty's got this invitation: 'Give me your tired, your poor, your reeking homeless
'Huddled masses,' said Ira. 'Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.'
Okay, fine. So like everybody in the old countries says, 'Hey, I'm a huddled mass,' and they all wanna come over. #Quote by Neal Shusterman
Immigration quotes by Carly Fiorina
#173. We need to fix our legal immigration system. #Quote by Carly Fiorina
Immigration quotes by Alan K. Simpson
#174. Every time one of us starts talking about more effective immigration controls, somebody else throws up the Statue of Liberty, how we're a nation of immigrants and all of that. The debate takes on tinges of racism, emotion. #Quote by Alan K. Simpson
Immigration quotes by David Vitter
#175. We have history as a guide, and history suggests that this brand of comprehensive reform ... is a recipe for failure. #Quote by David Vitter

Immigration quotes by Vicente Fox
#177. Mexico extends beyond its borders. #Quote by Vicente Fox
Immigration quotes by Jeff Sessions
#178. It's perfectly reasonable and responsible policy for any nation to maintain its sovereignty, to protect its borders. And [Donald] Trump does not believe in ending immigration. He's never proposed that. #Quote by Jeff Sessions
Immigration quotes by Jan C. Ting
#179. I respect those who openly advocate for unlimited immigration to the United States. Open borders is an intellectually coherent, defensible position. #Quote by Jan C. Ting
Immigration quotes by Ted Cruz
#180. There is no more an enthusiastic advocate of legal immigration in the U.S. Senate than I am, and that is a message that resonates powerfully in the Hispanic community. #Quote by Ted Cruz
Immigration quotes by Sana Szewczyk
#181. The voice was full of satisfaction with the things we had achieved, sadness for the life we had left behind, and hope for the unknown future. I could feel my heart beating strong and fast under my right hand. I wondered if anyone else could hear the beating of my heart. It felt like the integrated pulse of many hearts beating steadily together in this room at that very moment. #Quote by Sana Szewczyk
Immigration quotes by Milan Kundera
#182. It was the incommunicable scent of this country, its intangible essence, that she had brought along with her to France. #Quote by Milan Kundera
Immigration quotes by Arthur Kemp
#183. Unless legal and illegal immigration is halted and reversed, European First World nations across all of Europe from Spain to Russia, North America, Australia and New Zealand - will be destroyed and have their very culture and civilisation changed to that of the Third World. Immigration is now the single most important issue facing all First World nations, and will determine whether Western Civilisation continues to exist or not. #Quote by Arthur Kemp
Immigration quotes by Jack Kemp
#184. We are going to make sure that America is open to legal immigration because that is wealth and the talent and the entrepreneurial skills for the 21st Century. #Quote by Jack Kemp
Immigration quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#185. Shortly before the United States entered World War II, I received an invitation to come to the American Consulate in Vienna to pick up my immigration visa. My old parents were overjoyed because they expected that I would soon be allowed to leave Austria. I suddenly hesitated, however. The question beset me: could I really afford to leave my parents alone to face their fate, to be sent, sooner or later, to a concentration camp, or even to a so-called extermination camp? Where did my responsibility lie? Should I foster my brain child, logotherapy, by emigrating to fertile soil where I could write my books? Or should I concentrate on my duties as a real child, the child of my parents who had to do whatever he could to protect them? #Quote by Viktor E. Frankl
Immigration quotes by Mark Steyn
#186. Faced with public discontent about the statist agenda, the Condescendi look out the window at the unlovely mob in their "Don't treat on me" T-shirts and sneer, "The peasants are revolting." You oppose illegal immigration? You're a xenophobe. Gay marriage? Homophobe. The Ground Zero mosque? Islamaphobe. If that's the choice, I'd rather be damned as a racist and sexist. The evolution from -isms to phobias is part of the medicalization of dissent: the Conformicrats simply declare your position as a form of mental illness. #Quote by Mark Steyn
Immigration quotes by Lynda Bird Johnson Robb
#187. I would have to say all of the civil rights acts, because there were three, and even, say, the Immigration Act, which I think also is a civil rights act, maybe on a global perspective, that he cared very, very much about it. #Quote by Lynda Bird Johnson Robb
Immigration quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#188. [E]very Man who comes among us, and takes up a piece of Land, becomes a Citizen, and by our Constitution has a Voice in Elections, and a share in the Government of the Country. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Immigration quotes by Dick Morris
#189. Obama has had two raging successes in his term: He has slashed unemployment by persuading millions to give up hope and leave the labor force; and He has cut illegal immigration by casting the United States into a permanent job shortage. Some achievements! #Quote by Dick Morris
Immigration quotes by Grace Hopper
#190. I handed my passport to the immigration officer, and he looked at it and looked at me and said, 'What are you?' #Quote by Grace Hopper

Immigration quotes by Faisal I Of Iraq
#192. All necessary measures shall be taken to encourage and stimulate immigration of Jews into Palestine on a large scale. #Quote by Faisal I Of Iraq
Immigration quotes by Michael Badnarik
#193. The Libertarian position on immigration is to have, not open borders with no restrictions, but to have controlled borders that allow hard-working people to come into America to help raise their standard of living and improve the American economy. #Quote by Michael Badnarik
Immigration quotes by William J. Clinton
#194. I recently spoke with Barbara Jordan of the U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform, and I increasingly believe we need a system to verify employment eligibility. The Commission's recommendation of a national registry may be the way to go. #Quote by William J. Clinton
Immigration quotes by John McCain
#195. Well, I don't think it is amnesty to start with. Second of all, what do you want to do with them? That is the question in response and third of all, it is a tough path to citizenship, you have to pay back tax and learn English and have to have a clear record and get to the back of the line behind to the people who have come here legally or waiting legally. So, i just reject that. #Quote by John McCain
Immigration quotes by David Plouffe
#196. Gov. Romney said he would veto the Dream Act. Gov. Romney essentially said the 11 million people ought to just go home, they ought to self-deport. President Romney, if he is elected, is not going to fix our immigration system. #Quote by David Plouffe
Immigration quotes by Orson Scott Card
#197. As history shows us, when colonization is voluntary, people will self-select better than any testing system. It's like those foolish attempts to control immigration to American based on the traits that were deemed desirable, when in fact the only trait that defines Americans historically is "descended from somebody willing to give up everything to live there."
Willingness is the single most important test. #Quote by Orson Scott Card
Immigration quotes by Zbigniew Brzezinski
#198. Too rich to be relevant to the world's poor, [Europe] attracts immigration but cannot encourage imitation. Too passive regarding international security. Too self-satisfied, it acts as if its central political goal is to become the worlds most comfortable retirement home. Too set in its ways, it fears multicultural diversity #Quote by Zbigniew Brzezinski
Immigration quotes by Ann Coulter
#199. We can't even expect our immigration officials not to make citizens of convicted felons.1 Tens of thousands of immigrants have been granted citizenship after being convicted of crimes in the United States. And, no, you can't see their names or read about their crimes. A year before the 1996 presidential election, the Clinton White House worked feverishly to naturalize 1 million immigrants in time for Clinton's reelection. Criminal background checks were jettisoned for 200,000 applicants, so that citizenship was granted to at least 70,000 people with FBI criminal records and 10,000 with felony records.2 Murderers, robbers, and rapists were all made our fellow Americans so the Democrats would have a million new voters by the 1996 election. In 2013 alone, the Obama administration released 36,007 convicted criminal aliens with about 88,000 convictions among them - including 426 for rape and 193 for murder.3 They'll soon be your fellow citizens, too. #Quote by Ann Coulter
