What Fiscal Cost? :-)
A new Nobel season is upon us and as is often the case all the six awardees so far have been US citizens? So what is newsworthy about that you ask :-) it is the fact that two of the three winners in Medicine are immigrants and also two of the three winners in Physics are immigrants. As you all well know by now, I do not put much stock into this idea of nationality, race or gender. But I am willing to make an exception, obviously for the purposes of the course :-), by asking the obvious question: Do you think that the benefits/surpluses garnered from such immigrants should be used to compensate for the so called fiscal deficit of the less fortunate immigrants? PS: The Nobel season is not over yet, there might be much more to come over the next week. The Nobel prize in Economics will be announced on the 12th.
Do you Support asylum for undocumented immigrants?
Should the Census 2010 count illegal immigrants.The US Constitution says: "The actual enumeration shall be made within three years after the first meeting of the Congress of the United States, and within every subsequent term of 10 years"
Who should be inoculated against "swine flu"?
Are the undocumented in the US inspite of us or are we accomplices?
