Skilled labor imports is such a weak argument for nothing but one thing: cheap labor. You replace a local worker who already knows his culture and how things work, with someone from the third world who come in (often) on degrees from bribes and black market exam papers. When taking a job for 1/4 what a local would have to be paid, he also has to learn a completely new system and therefore brings no skills to the table until 5-8 years after immigrating.
Skilled labor arguments are only perpetuated by big companies who make enormous profits hiring cheap labor. It has nothing at all to do with anyone needing a skill that doesn’t exist here. We have complete ability to train people and get them to have the skills we need, if we want to. Immigration in excess is the digging of a grave to any nation, not only the U.S.
The UK is a perfect example of a nation rapidly collapsing for not much else but excess immigration. The “skilled” labor of Britain is ruining the whole country. Centuries upon centuries of history destroyed in less than 10 years when a new political party, pro-immigration, came into power. Just mind boggling. Here we have a nation that created so many wonders through time, and which now can’t even keep organized enough for a normal bus schedule to run smoothly, because some Abdul Kalem from Pakistan is now running the whole department that deals with public transport.
Just a pity.

this cartoon is heavy handed and not particulariy funny. I may be in sympathy with the message, but the wit is lacking.
