What's FAIR? Nativism with cute animation, that's what.
Note that at NO point in this ugly, bigoted rant is the "why is it a problem" part of the title ever addressed. Sophia comes to the United States for a better life, and inspires members of her family and their friends- a whopping total of 36 people over god knows how many years when you think about how long it takes to fill out the applications these days- and the negative result is....well, what, exactly? That a nation of 300 million has added 36? What is the crisis here "Fair?"
And check out the YouTube cretins, using the same arguments put forward against Catholics in the 1850s, the Chinese in the 1880s, Jews in the 1920s....the "arguments" which boil down to "I'm here, that's enough, my family should be the last allowed in, shut the door because these people aren't assimilating they are just retarding our wage scales and eating up our resources blah blah blah I wish I could say what I really mean but I don't want to get called the racist jackass I am....."
Oh, but I'm sure I'll get a response along the lines of "when my ancestors came they followed the rules." First, that's exactly what these people are doing. They are coming here legally, filling out forms, following the rules. Second, what "rules" did your ancestors follow? Until 1924 there were virtually NO rules for entering the United States and becoming a permanent citizen- your chances of making it through the screening process was about 97%, and the whole deal- from luggage inspection to medical check to intelligence test- took about 3 hours on average. Your ancestors didn't jump through hoops to prove their worthiness to be American citizens, unless you think that standing in a crowded line for an afternoon constitutes a trial by fire.
Tell you what, you wannabee modern Know-Nothings: Let's be totally FAIR and put the system your ancestors used to gain entry into the world's largest refugee camp back into place. Oh let me guess- it's "different" now because America is really crowded and the world is really dangerous, right? Well, fact is that we have a skilled worker shortage in this country, which is why your kids' doctor is very likely to be an Indian and why tech companies are begging the government to allow more educated workers in on at least temporary visas. The world is really dangerous? More dangerous than when Europe was embroiled in one war after another, which was probably when your own family arrived?
Kiss off, FAIR. Stop producing the most nakedly anti-American hate propaganda not actually featuring Alex Jones already. This is just crap, and you should be ashamed. You should also read some history about the country you claim to support. Because you clearly don't know anything about it.
