Of course the US needs immigrants, they are the life blood of American commerce and society, it keeps the nation fresh and lively, allowing hard working foreigners to bring strong work ethic, ingenuity, and success to a country that would otherwise stagnate and die. The issue isn't immigration, its unchecked/uncontrolled immigration of refuge class for political purposes (creating voting blocks) at a time where its economically unfeasible to put them on the welfare dole as soon as they make it into the US. But for productive individuals, as long as their arrival doesn't overwhelm the system (like tech industry buying politicians to authorize mass issuing of H-1B visas to hire cheaper employees in lieu of citizens), then its not a problem.Well no I'm saying that he had a point about immigration negatively affecting Black people.
But since you brought it up we don't really need legal immigration from Africa, Asia, South America or any other place really. The amount of legal immigrants that really contribute anything long term and don't just leave after they get what they want are few and far between. Do we really need another British actor or is this a job that could just as easily go to an American?
If the black American actor is as good or better than the black from the UK they'll get the part, its as simple as that. If they aren't as capable, they shouldn't get the part.
