    But it’s diversity that makes the comics page great.

    Oh. Please.

    If we wanted to reduce immigration, we’d go after the so-called ‘Job Providers’ and cut off the reason people come here.

    But we don’t actually want to pay $10 an orange and it’s easier to blame the powerless. . .

    Economists broadly agree that population growth fuels economic growth in wealthy countries.

    But the recently released census figures show the US population was 331.5 million people, an increase of just 7.4 percent between 2010 and 2020 — the lowest rate since the 1930s.

    Projections suggest that, unless current trends change, those numbers could continue to diminish dramatically over the next two to three decades, with the population growing by just 78 million by 2060.

    Some parts of the US are already beginning to experience some of the downsides of population slowdown or decline: Shrinking tax bases in rural areas have made it harder for government budgets to support essential services, such as infrastructure and public schools. As population growth slows, the pressure for cuts will likely grow.

    Meanwhile, the existing population will continue to age; by 2030, the Census Bureau estimates that one in five US residents will be of retirement age.

    “Slow population growth, at least in the United States and a lot of other developed countries, will become a dire age dependency problem,” William Frey, a senior fellow at the Brooking Institution’s metropolitan policy program, said. “It puts a big strain on the rest of the population.”

    The census shows the US needs to increase immigration — by a lot

    Undocumented immigrants are day laborers at almost every construction site, including all of Trump’s building. Do something about the people who hire them? But those are our best capitalists!

    With the characters you used, some of the best comics ever anywhere, recommending to close the border seem ludicrous.

    Yeah, close the border. Everyone of them is funnier, smarter, and better drawn than you two.

    Odd, all of these characters have once worked for MMM on Working Daze.

    No taxpayer paid benefits for illegal immigrant. $50,000 fine or more for companies or people hiring said illegals. Watch it stop.

    Those are all American cartoons why are YOU discriminating? Fascist right wingers want to destroy melting pot USA and turn it into a 3rd world white nationalist Christian dictatorship complete with concentration camps and the arrests of democrats.

    For what the US pays for border security we could help people want to stay in their own countries, for less than half the cost. Then we could all enjoy “more open” borders going both ways

    President Biden submitted a proposal for immigration reform the day he came into office. The trouble is that neither the Senate nor the House of Representatives have even discussed it. Admittedly, the COVID pandemic was a crisis that needed immediate attention, but there have been calls for immigration reform for decades.

    It seems that members of Congress (especially “Republicans”) don’t want to solve the problem, because it would be one less issue they could complain about when campaigning. They would rather go around arguing and pounding their fists, than actually do the work they are elected to do. That’s why most of them blocked any real discussion of immigration reform.

    Immigration reform requires nuanced and thoughtful legislation to address the problems currently occurring. Given the number of low-quality people currently elected to both the Senate and the House of Representatives, I doubt very much whether the current Congress is capable of drafting, let alone passing that kind of legislation.

    This is not a presidential problem; this is a congressional problem. Vote for better quality representation.

    The walking dead take up space that working cartoonist could use. Carve in granite, they’d likely use it poorly, but that’s not the point.
