Apples and oranges.
It was a different time. We had plenty of land and natural resources then, but needed the cheap labor.
So, we took in all the nasty Irish, Chinese, and Italians (shithole countries at that time) that we could get. Oh btw, those poor bastards all had to get on a boat and come in legally, no slipping over the border in the dead of the night for them. When they got here, they were also the victims of bigotry and hatred. Furthermore, they frequently had to pay exorbitant fees tp the people that got them in here and had to live as indentured servants (a fancy word for slavery) for years to pay off their debt.
Difference between then and now, is that the fire marshal has said that we're getting close to our max occupancy here in the land of the free and the home of the brave. Therefore, why not be selective in who comes in?
Here's a challenge...open your home to a Syrian or Haitian family. One condition...NO PRESCREENING, just go to the nearest mosque or place that Haitian hang out and tell them you want to house some refugees. Post a picture of you and them IRL right here on IMGFLIP.

That's a silly argument, because I wouldn't open my home to a family from ANY country without screening them first...not Syria, not Haiti, not Japan, not Argentina and not Norway. I'm not against screening. Screening is good.
Your argument worked great until the fourth paragraph. This country is not reaching max occupancy. And many people have opened their homes to Haitian or Syrian families, WITH prescreening because that's how it works; how do you know who needs help the most without a through background check? My ancestry comes from all shithole countries, only back then the only place that wasn't a shithole was England. 'Merit-based' qualifications are being forwarded now because all the whites who are feeling economic pressure are buying into the Trumpian argument that others are responsible for your perceived decreased status in society; it's easier than taking responsibility for one's own actions. Kick a few brown people out of the country? They'll still outnumber you in a couple decades no matter how tall you build the wall. It's time to get smart and realize all those brown people are in the same economic boat as you are and that realizing it and working together is the only way to prosperity. Going to Trump rallies will only mean that one's great-grandchildren will be pumping gas for successful no-longer-minority entrepeneurs.

My wife is a public school special ed teacher with a master's degree. Yet she wouldn't meet the income criteria to immigrate here under the Trump doctrine.
