The bill, like all governmental writing, has shit in it it doesn't need, but the concept, at the basic level is sound. "You want in, fucking ask"
I would support such a position on immigration. However, that is not our position.
Isn't that what visa's, passport control, green cards and registered workers (in a general overview) is about? Asking for permission to enter the country and work?
Nominally, sure. But what they have become is a tool by which we can tell people who can or cannot come in. So now it isn't just "fucking ask", it's "fucking ask and if we approve you, etc". That's what I object to.
You object to us having a set of standards/rules/requirements that people have to meet before they come to live/work in the country? You would rather the borders be open, anyone can come in, just start finding jobs and living? Or better yet, come in, not find a job and live of society?
