These white males came to the New World only to pursue a better life for themselves and their families. In fact, however, these men and boys were America's first illegal aliens.

Native American Indians living in the Jamestown area in 1607 included the Pembroke, Paspahegh, Nansemonds, and Powhatan tribes, among others and tried to eliminate these white illegal settlers...via this declaration and precedent they imply the law.

The facts are that very few Americans today are descended from native Americans or the Jamestown settlers. As I pointed out most of us are descended from people who came to America legally. Why should we welcome those who won't do the same? Why should we not only welcome them but learn their language and pay more in taxes to support them? Because that's the argument that the pro-illegals are making. Unless you're a rich cheap creep who doesn't want to obey American employment laws or an illegal alien, you're asking others to make huge sacrifices to meet your needs.

Why should we?

Sadly, they refuse to acknowledge the fact that this is the year 2012. We are now a sovereign nation with established borders, recognized by the entire world. We also have laws governing who may or may not enter. It is no longer a vast wasteland up for grabs. The supporters of illegal aliens are desperately seeking justification for their unlawful presence. But, clearly, none exist.

Do you actually believe they grew on trees in this country? Or, did they originate elsewhere?

The Indians in Jamestown actually liked the settlers, they were in fact becoming capitalists. Read the link I provided above. Disproves what Mach and Lucario are claiming.

What is the basis for your assertion? Who told you there were laws?

Illegal immigration was never really a major issue ultimate the welfare state came into creation, not to mention job killing regulations (occupational licensing, min. wage).

I have this really cool add-on to Firefox where I start typing something and it looks for the words already on the internet and brings them in.

It really helps in posting, saves a lot of time.

I would have no problem acknowledging their immigration laws, if someone could provide proof of their existence.
