17. Democrats have said they are willing to talk about an immigration policy like canada's.

 

In canada we don't get many illegal immigrants. Well not until Trump. And when we did get some from mexico we just put visa requirements on them for a few years. We are surrounded by 3 oceans. We take if refugees. We take in lots of people. We need immigrants desperately but they are not so much illegal or as low skilled. In my experience the people who nursed my mom and currently do my dad are way over qualified. They just didn't have money for school back home. And once they arrive they get streamed into schooling in the areas that need workers. One of my friends should be a social worker at the police station. The latest guy who is looking after my dad should be a hotel manager. It is not funny. Some upgrade to a full nursing degree. One man from Rawanda who was a nurse is now Director of care for the nursing home. Good on him. Their children do well. A point system is pretty unfair to the world outside. But many nations have it. I know one woman who is going to get her full nursing degree in canada and then go back home to Angola and open a clinic. I don't think the us can survive without lots of immigrants. Just like canada their future depends on them. It would be full on dystopian nightmare without large numbers of immigrants. I don't like the idea of temporary workers either. That is too aparthidy to me but canada does it.

Quite frankly i am more worried about management practices in business in canada. That is something someone like Elizabeth Warren could tackle. The 18th century management model has got to go. I've worked for many bosses and nastyness and not valueing the whole person and clipping employees wings has got to stop. And i hear things from others. I've worked for government and non profits and some businesses who are the most lovely people. But that thing where you grind your employees into the ground to squeeze every cent of productivity out of them so management gets big bonuses is a crime.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
