    Should any be allowed into the US? Or should they be restricted, so that we can accommodate the wave of Norwegians anxiously awaiting settlement in the US?

    Discuss, preferably in a stable, genius kind of way.

    "Norway is called a welfare state because the government, both federal and local,
    has primary responsibility for the welfare of its citizens."

    Few Norwegians seem eager to leave their welfare state for the 'freedom' of the USA.

    Who can blame them; it’s a beautiful independent wealthy country.

    Much like the US. Whatever could be the difference? Maybe not spending half their yearly budget on their military might give them the means to fix all their welfare issues. But who needs that when you can have the excitement of citizens living in fear of their local police, drinking poisoned water?

    Would Fjotolf Hansen (nee Anders Breivik) have felt more welcome if he had emigrated to the USA?

    I'm guessing that only people from sh..hole countries would want to cross the border illegally.

    Yeah. Everyone loves the Vikings. That's why they were so popular.

    If we want a well educated population with marketable skills, we should not be pulling uneducated and unskilled labor from third world poverty nations. We should be pulling in the kind of people who will give this country benefit.

    My ancestors would have never made it here if such criteria had been applied.

    How about yours?

    Is it your serious argument that no one from countries like El Salvador, Haiti, etc. etc. etc. can "give this country benefit"?

    Why would someone from Norway want to move to the United States ?

    Exactly!

    If your country sits above the hole of excrement level, you probably enjoy better healthcare, better childcare services, a better quality of life, better work life balance, better holidays, less crime, better access to education.....So why exactly would you take a step backwards from every living standard advantage you already enjoy to come to the USA.

    Unless you're just coming to skim off some cream, to bugger off when you've had your fill!

    Because the US has skill shortages and (sometimes) pays big bucks.
    Health and IT are the biggies.

    The US education system is failing its own country by not turning out enough smart people.
    (There's a skills shortage in teaching as well)
