    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    Russians leaders lead criticism of the American establishment while all of them are having families living in USA/Western Europe not to mention having their bank accounts there .

    Likewise, majority of ordinary Russians keeps talking about how much they dislike USA...yet want to move other there.

    I'm not sure how that follows from my post, but Trump's proposed wall won't stop people coming to the US. Improving conditions in neighbouring countries would help.

    And where did I say that? Most people coming to the US are wanted by the US as legal workers. And even the illegal immigrants are wanted by employers such as Trump.

    Well, then that's up to neighbouring countries to lift their game and improve their own conditions!

    exactly...we are not responsible for problems of the world...My experience is... people who keep worrying about others problems...struggle too much to address their own. Can not address ones in Australia - lets save the world

    If you are wanted, you are coming legally.
    Those who come illegally are unwanted

    Neither of these statements is actually true. There is often demand for employees which is filled by illegal immigrants.
