Wealthy Chinese look to the U.S., Australia and Canada in search of less stress, cleaner air, better schools and a more stable political climate. Leon Zhong, an emigration consultant in Beijing, is planning his own retirement in Australia. He says the rich have myriad reasons for leaving. "The environmental hazard is a factor: the air, the poisoned foods," he said.

    This is AMERICA, a land of emigrants. We should welcome ANYONE who wants to abide by our laws and help build the country.

    How could you say no?
    This nation was founded on emigrants.
  • antiCMatthews 2012/11/08 04:05:35
    No I do not.We should welcome hard working Americans.Yes Obama we did build this.
  • toobored54 2012/11/08 03:30:35
    Sure, let em in. We currently pay China 27 billion per year in interest on our debt, making Chinese nationals rich. if they move here and spend it back in the USA, isn't it kinda like a rebate or something?

    They have "Poisoned" there food & country, and now want ours. Like the Indians many years ago, we should just take what they have, and send them walking.
  • diaverd... Its Me,... 2012/11/08 09:43:15
    That is one of the most tyrannical ideas I've ever heard in regards to immigration.
  • CrazyJason 2012/11/08 00:12:55
    You know.. The food and air over here isn't much better either. They don't have to let you know if they're using GMO's over here. And the air quality pretty much sucks because there's too many damn people driving. They need to limit how many kids you can have. We can't afford to grow bigger.
  • MindaBrown CrazyJason 2012/11/12 12:57:07
    Sure take something away from the people. Another obamanite thinks he knows everything.
  • CrazyJason MindaBrown 2012/11/12 16:44:43
    Actualy.. I hate Obama you moron.
  • DP 2012/11/07 21:01:51
    I hope they destroy us from the inside. It'd be so fitting.

    that is exactually what they are setting us up for. And what will Obama or the others care if we lose our asses??? They did not build anything, they constantly say they will not abide by this or that due to they did not have a choice or say in the making of the rules and building of the USA. So why should some care
  • DP tina wi... 2012/11/11 17:23:40
    I'm a fairly patriotic person myself, that is for the America that we used to be. We deserve it for caring about ourselves instead of the entire nation as a whole.

    Before it got over crowded and ran, and americans getting put out of jobs, homes, etc. The laws and rules were made for the ones that were all here during that era. And, honestly I am sorry no harm but there is a reason we all have a different area we all live or come from. I mean my GOD, people want a change then they need to want it bad enough and honestly in the other countries they dont want it bad enough. they are like everyone else now a days wait for someone else to fix it or do it. And sit back reap benefits. But we keep opening the gates giving free food, money, housing, education. and what do we have? our kids, our future? NOTHING> honestly look at the numbers someone pointed out to me the other day white americans are like a dying breed. We are dying off almost 50 percent over the nation. Why do you think that is.?
  • Tpem 2012/11/07 19:42:19
    It will not matter, everything he spends here goes to China anyway. Even his taxes.

    Look what happened in Hawaii in the 80s and 90s. We don't need our country controlled by foreign nationals.
  • sean RJeffre... 2012/11/07 16:17:18

  • peabody 2012/11/07 15:31:52

    obama won because of the welfare bums.
  • sean peabody 2012/11/07 16:18:24
    can you own land and a house in china as an american..no !
  • Bacci 2012/11/07 15:20:13
    And how about we don't allow anymore immigrants over here for say... the next five years period.
  • Any Bacci 2012/11/07 21:04:48
    Good luck filling your medical and engineering schools with hardworking, intelligent students. Large percentages come from overseas and outperform you and your kin everyday. Get over it.
  • Bacci Any 2012/11/07 21:16:07
    I don't have to get over anything. You don't like my answer, then tough, and you get over it.
  • Any Bacci 2012/11/07 21:17:54
    Already over it ;)
  • Bacci Any 2012/11/07 21:18:54
    Apparently you aren't, you keep coming back here to comment.

    Because it's enjoyable! I wouldn't be on this website if it weren't fun poking fun.
  • Bacci Any 2012/11/07 21:21:57
    Move on now.

    Ironically, your ancestors were immigrants to this country as well.
  • baboula 2012/11/07 14:26:13

    It's likely the easiest way for America to get back some of its money
  • sean Whodini 2012/11/07 16:19:58
    were paying the federal reserve corporation almost 600 billion a year in intrest..not china.
  • Whodini sean 2012/11/07 19:52:17
    For the longstanding trade deficit?
  • sean Whodini 2012/11/08 01:46:43
    all congress has to do is close all those corporate tax loopholes they voted in..but i am sure all the same people were voted back in..so nothing will change..there is trillions in corporate money in the cayman islands and swiss bank accounts...all legal..thanks to congress
  • Whodini sean 2012/11/08 02:24:55
    Considering that just a few days ago, President GW Bush was the keynote speaker at the Cayman Islands Investment Summit, I imagine that won't change anytime soon.
    And I'm sure Romney is quite disappointed he's not yet the 1st US president to have a Swiss bank account.
