Yet another racially-based argument that is going to make all of "us" pro-illegals (as some of us are labeled here) look bad. Native Americans were committing atrocities long before the Spanish arrived. And this is so conveniently forgotten among many extremist Mexican-Americans, but millions of Mexicans (and most of the Mexicans in power in that country) are white. It's not like the United States is the big, bad "white" wolf and Mexico is a Pocohontas in distress. And let me comment on this statement you made:

"Just because you migrated here first doesn't give you authority to stop others from coming."

Actually, yes, migrating here first gave the ancestors of modern-day Americans the authority to create laws that would be binding on future generations, including on us. Mexico has laws governing immigration too, you know, and they are enforced much more rigidly than those in operation in the United States.

Well, of course if you want to start making SENSE, then so be it...you are correct. All nations, all human systems of law, and all human institutions, as you seem to be saying here, do have an arbitrary quality to them...that's how we humans 'operate'. Those who aren't within the law, or within the system, are 'out'. This is true in all countries, just as you say....and the laws of the US are considerably more humane and accomodating than those of many other places...and certainly a lot more inclusive of 'all'.

Of course they did...and of course nobody really 'listens to the Statue of Liberty', either...just having a little fun with an exceedingly tedious topic.

I'd have to let the ghosts of all the Indians I've killed respond to that, and I'm sure my ancestors would be comfortable with this too. But I already know what the Indians will say.

They'd point to you and ask me, "What species is that?"
