Do people in your country actually discuss real practical solutions to immigration problems or do they just yell at each other like they do in the us? News shows and public radio often have pieces on immigration but they are often public interest type pieces that urge for amnesty for illegal immigrants, that are then countered by rednecks saying we should deport them all. Practical solutions and compromises are rarey offered and the national dialogue feels like it's always between two radical and shitty solutions. The lefties keep screaming how we should accept anyone that wants to come to the us and that all immigrants are model citizens anyone that disagrees is simply racist The right isn't any better and wants to use our guns to deport them all and make America for Americans. That doesn't constitute a national conversion IMO just two groups of crazies yelling at each other
