I apologize for the mistake. I really meant to say descendents of immigrants rather than immigrants. I do understand the difference. That is what happens when you are typing and talking on the phone at the same time but then again, I'm sure you guys knew it was a mistake.

Anyway, I dont regret my mistake because it opened up a discussion about the different points of view regarding "A nation of immigrants". I had no clue there were people that disagreed with it and so far it's been fun reading your responses.

I still stand by my point that our country was formed by immigrants at one point or another...and it still is, whether wrong or right... it is the way it is. Here is a website where you can see the dates and the wave of immigrants into America. From the 1920's to 1979, America admitted almost 50 million immigrants.

Yes, and I also said in the original post not to get emotional about the issue and that is just what you did. So, let it go.

I did not choose this topic to get everyone upset, but for the sake of debate. I could care less about the mural.
