So, how can any of us talk like we own something and someone is trying to take something away from us... the Americans. Again...just asking...who are the "real" Americans...and are the real Americans ashamed of the history of this country of taking from everyone listed in the "other" category....or is it still our hidden shame to condemn anyone who is different from the face we see in the mirror...Real Americans...please stand up!
Reconcile with the point that we are all immigrants
That's irrelevant to the issue.

Your off the topic.

IMO, a real American is one who honors our laws and puts this country and its citizens first.

Today my boyfriend and I stopped by a McDonald's located at a sanctuary city in Mass.

Behind the counter were 9 people... The ones who took our orders could barely speak English...

I sat next to an African American couple... Both homeless. I got to thinking..

I hope to God that those McDonald's workers are here legally... But I find that hard to believe.

It's estimated that 75% of the illegals who work in the USA have committed felony document fraud and identity theft to work high paying jobs that require a social security number.

Very few illegals are actually doing farm work because in reality there are not many jobs in agriculture and those jobs are on the decline.
