"Merit" means someone entering the country already educated or has high potential to fill in important jobs i. e. teacher, engineer, doctor. I don't need some foreigner entering my country that isn't going to benefit my country economically or help us succeed to greater heights, but instead brings misery and poverty into my territory.
Its expedient because huge and rich companies profit of these dirt cheap labor from desperate foreigners. Politicians in my home country have sold us out big time in that regard.

Common sense should tell you by merit i. e. teacher, scientist, doctor etc. What benefit and future prosperity can some migrant offer my country being unexpected or by washing cars or cleaning homes? Zero. If anything my country will be heading backwards and citizens who wash cars and clean homes will have to compete with some migrants who will be thrilled to wash or clean homes at a much lower cost just to have a income of any sorts, thus hurting my fellow countryman or woman and their families economically among a few other things.
I didn’t wanna say too much because I don’t know where you stand
I just told you. I support migration by 100% merit. Its the smart thing to do for the future of your nation especially a successful one; otherwise your country will be heading backwards by allowing no value peasants to enter into it.
It’s not a good idea for me because they take away all my work and I’m in construction. They come out to a job site with real low cheap bids guaranteed to get the job and that cancels me out and they live 10 people in one apartment and I can’t afford those low dirt cheap price bids living in a house. Plus all the bills I’ve got to pay. The Mexicans are killing my work And they don’t care about the quality of life they live in tents a lot of them
Exactly my point. Either you offer cheap prices too and take a pay cut or keep your prices as they are to maintain your lifestyle but struggle to find work. Its messed up. You don't deserve that as a citizen.
If I cut my prices I’ll be living in an apartment and have to get roommates or live in a tent alone. No woman would ever have me
I completely understand you. You are in the right.
