From a column by Dennis Prager:

"Though many wonderful immigrants come from the world’s worst places, there is some connection between the moral state of an immigrant’s country and the immigrant’s contribution to America. According to data from the Center for Immigration Studies, 73 percent of households headed by Central American and Mexican immigrants use one or more welfare programs, as do 51 percent of Caribbean immigrants and 48 percent of African immigrants. Contrast that with 32 percent of East Asians and 26 percent of Europeans."

This is why we need to be more selective in our immigration practices, looking at English language skills, education, work/trade skills, etc. as core components of the evaluation criteria.

The WH could use someone like you. Just one. Rich Lowry has been doing a good job of getting similar points out there. They make sense.
It's too bad no one in the WH can (or will) make a cogent argument, there are lots of them.
