If they are legal, let them stay. If they are illegal, let them leave. If the poor nations had social programs to improve their standards of living, it would eventually lead to less legal and illegal immigration to the currently industrialized nations.

The large nations in the Americas would have standards of living comparable to the USA & the smaller nations would have standards of living comparable to Western Europe, Japan & South Korea.
The people should take a stand against their oppressive governments that get so much support from the USA. Neither this nation nor any other nation has room for the entire world.
