Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Dio not you think sometimes immigration could be detrimental(in economic terms) to the local people,especially the workers with less qualifications. For example, in California the wage has fallen to 2-4$ per hour due to the illegal Mexican immigrants. And the employers prefer them to the Americans who can not anyway keep a reasonable standard of living with such wages. When I studied in Vienna, the Easteuropean students worked for 40 % less money that the Austrian. And that causes negative feelings for both sides: the low-paid are feeling inferior and the Austrian are xenophobic.
