We don't need immigrants right now. We should focus on revamping our education system so that cletus can do the job you want to import people to do instead of shooting up heroin in a trailer park and then voting for trump like that's going to change his predicament.

Are you against a Merit-based immigration policy outright?

It appears to me that you seem concerned many immigrants will be unproductive or otherwise not performing any tasks that a "typical" American citizen wouldn't be able to do. Do you consider that a fair statement of your views (in part)?

Now, would you be opposed to letting a PhD Engineer into the country, for instance?

Because we have Americans who should be PhD Engineers. As fair as it is to say that jobs are not a zero sum game, foreign labour is an artificial pressure on the market, and even high skilled immigration still creates a surplus of labour in that given industry, which just forces out the Americans who are already here.

Currently, do you think the U.S. is struggling with a surplus of PhD Engineers (and such)?

No, but I think we're struggling with a generation of directionless young men that could be.
