WE ARE ALL IMMIGRANTS?
[SIZE=2][/SIZE](Different time and different kind of immigrant.)

[SIZE=2][/SIZE]Immigrants of old entered this country legally through Ellis Island and registered. Those that came earlier was when we did not have immigration laws and borders.

Immigrants of old built this country and the did not ask what this country can do for them but what can they do for this country. They did not ask for free education, healthcare, welfare and housing. We are no longer into nation building but into nation survival. We do not have the natural resources or food to sustain the population growth of 30 million immigrants into this country every 20 years. We already have a water shortage and import much of our food. And where are the jobs for the growth going to come from? Not to mention 30 million low wage earners into our healthcare system. And their elderly parents will come over and go into our social security system without ever paying into it. SSI with full Medicaid. It will turn us into a third world country. We need limited and controlled immigration in order to survive.

The will pay taxes? They already pay taxes in spite of the rhetoric that they donít. Very little if any and that will not change with amnesty. And donít forget the crime that has come with immigrants and population growth. Gangs and drugs. It is not true that most illegal aliens are good hard working people who only want to take care of their families.

We will cease to be a democracy and become socialist or communist country because we will have no choice and the end of America as we know it.

Pro-amnesty advocates
should think long and hard before they do amnesty for 30 million illegal aliens. Because once it begin, there will be no turning back.

Pro amnesty people have to know they sound absolutely stupid when they say, "We are all immigrants." But it's the only argument they have so they have to use it.

Yeah that's great. We are all "immigrants". In that case then everyone has to go back to Ethiopia since that is where we all originate from. That makes sense.
Better yet, we need to all go back to the Oceans where our true origins began. Nimrods....

10 generations of anchor babies!
That's laughable.

At least I have a few legal residents in my ancestors! Hahaha!
Comanche nation lives!

Pro-open borders politics, will confuse illegal alien with immigrant in a heartbeat to get anyone dumb enough to fall for it, on the no nations deal.

I'm not an immigrant -- and there were some immigrants that might have helped build this country but for the most part it was built by Americans.

I think that's because many on the open borders side don't understand English all that well and don't know the definition of the word "immigrant".

Legally? Under whose laws?

We could argue this until the world ended and get nowhere, but really! "we did not have immigration laws and borders."

I find it both amazing and nauseating how people will twist history to justify the genocide, attempted annihilation and attempted genocide. And I ain't no victim. I'm a survivor. The Indigenous have survived every last thing the European emigrants devised to annihilate them. That is survival. That is evolutionary fitness. We're still here. We still have our culture and we still speak our languages....as hard as the White Christians tried to annihilate my grandparent's generation and all those generations before them they failed.

1. Do you really think there were no laws with all of the Indigenous people who were here? You really, really should study the history of at least the east coast tribes who were here when the europeans began arriving in masses with their pestilence, religion and crime.

2. My tribe, the Muscogee Creek Nation had multiple towns spead throughout what is the current Alabama, Georgia, and Florida. We had a representative system of government that had been in place for eons, and we most certainly had laws. How arrogant of you to think 'there were no laws'. Oh baby, there were laws, they just weren't YOUR laws.

Seriously? The emigrants of the old lied, cheated, tricked, and stole this country. My great-great-grandparents were rounded up, and crowded body to body in cages in their own defecation until andy jackson was prepared to march them (many in shackles and chains) to Indian Territory. After a generation in Indian Territory the Whites decided they also wanted that land and hence....the Okie land grab. I won't go into the Dawes Act, the lies, cheating, trickery done by these so called Christians, but surely you get it. (immigrant, btw is the process of moving from one place to another, while emigrant is someone who has already made that move)

That's the only thing you got correct!!
"Because once it begin, there will be no turning back."

Yes, I know. It's my history.
