Lets take a look at US immigration law.

Naturalization Act of 1790: Stipulated that "any alien, being a free white person, may be admitted to become a citizen of the United States"

1882 The Chinese Exclusion Act: Prohibited certain laborers from immigrating to the United States.

1885 and 1887: Alien Contract Labor laws which prohibited certain laborers from immigrating to the United States.

1892: On January 2, a new Federal US immigration station opened on Ellis Island in New York Harbor. Ellis Island officially closed down in 1954. Naturalization Act of 1790 still applies to only White people becoming Citizens and to the exclusion of non-Whites.

1903: This Act restated the 1891 provisions concerning land borders and called for rules covering entry as well as inspection of aliens crossing the Mexican border.

1907 The US immigration Act of 1907: Reorganized the states bordering Mexico (Arizona, New Mexico and a large part of Texas) into Mexican Border District to stem the flow of immigrants into the United States.

1917 - 1924: A series of laws were enacted to further limit the number of new immigrants. These laws established the quota system and imposed passport requirements. They expanded the categories of excludable aliens and banned all Asians except Japanese.

Indian Citizenship Act of 1924

1940 The Alien Registration Act: Required all aliens (non-U.S. citizens) within the United States to register with the Government and receive an Alien Registration Receipt Card (the predecessor of the "Green Card").

1968 Act: Eliminated US immigration discrimination based on race, place of birth, sex and residence. It also officially abolished restrictions on Oriental US immigration.

1986 Act: Focused on curtailing illegal US immigration. It legalized hundred of thousands of illegal immigrants. The 1986 Immigration Act is commonly know as the 1986 Immigration Amnesty. It also introduced the employer sanctions program which fines employers for hiring illegal workers. It also passed tough laws to prevent bogus marriage fraud. Hey look, they finally let some Latin Americans into America to become citizens.

Creation of the USCIS 2003: As of March 1, 2003, the US immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) becomes part of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

You see prior to 1900's and Ellis Island, [which officially ended in 1954] as long as you were a free Anglo alien you were accepted by the Government who happen to be ALL ANGLO.

This practice continued until the civil rights movement of 1968.

Now we both know why theirs more Anglo Americans in the USA than any other group of people.

No special treatment regarding American Immigration laws, right?


Care to elaborate?

Sure, I will elaborate. That was then and this is now. Our immigration policies today favor both Asians and Latinos so what is your beef? Guess it is a wash now, right? Add 12-20 million illegals to that and you will see that Latinos have gotten the largest quotas overall. You want us to explain why the laws were what they were back then when it had nothing to do with us today? Why don't you dig up some dead policy maker from the past and ask them?

You're not a moderator so quit acting like one.

Now take a shower.

You reek of hypocrisy and bias.

You act as if the immigration law is written in stone, which the history of immigration in this country has proven it is not.

Reagan gave amnesty to millions of illegals in the 1980s, just like our govt did for the dozens of millions of illegals who came here from Europe before 1912, both prime examples of how maleable our immigration laws are.

How about the chinese exclusion act, and its eradication in the 1960s, or the changing of quota laws for immigration?

These are all major changes in our immigration code and process that illustrate how the law is anything but written in stone.

So continue on with your huckleberry fin adventures, I brought up past immigration history for one purpose, to prove to you anti-illegal immigrant grunion that our immigration laws are anything but set in stone and that people like you who pretend they're set in stone is your shortcoming.

What I find amazing is that some people actually feel that rewarding this criminal activity is the answer to the problem.

Of course they are not set in stone. AZ just created a new one, obviously. The Feds are catching pressure to model our Nation's laws after it.

You should get off your NEO-CON mentality.
Even the pro-illegals claim that the border cannot be completely secured because they will find a way to get in anyway so we have to take steps to deter them in other ways. Re-interpreting the birthright citizenship amendment the way the writers of it intended it to be would make quite a deterrant.

I could also suggest that you change your mentality instead in favor of the rule of law since you are making suggestions about our mentality.

So you think if a civil war were to break out (God forbid that it would) that HS would takes sides with illegal aliens and their supporters rather than U.S. citizens? Kind of being dilusional with that one, aren't you?

Well, the problem with chipping an illegal immigrant is that a chip can be easily removed and then what?

You see placing chips into people brings up a key Christian fear herein contained in the infamous Holy Bible.

The mark of the beast.

If you can convince America, a predominately Christian Nation that implanting non-citizens is not bible prophesy then by all means go for it.


Using our Military to defend our border is also a viable option. Did you know that during the days after 9/11 President Bush placed the military along a 100 mile stretch of US-Mexican border. During that time frame, zero ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS crossed that border. Once the military left, the coyotes were back in business.

As for seizing illegal immigrant assets, well that will never happen as even illegal immigrants enjoy much of our Constitution.

Wong Wing v. U.S., 163 U.S. 228 (1896) The 14th Amendment to the Constitution is not confined to the protection of citizens.

Detention or temporary confinement, as part of the means necessary to give effect to the exclusion or expulsion of Chinese aliens is valid.

The United States can forbid aliens from coming within their borders, and expel them from their territory, and can devolve the power and duty of identifying and arresting such persons upon executive or subordinate officials, but when Congress sees fit to further promote such a policy by subjecting the persons of such aliens to infamous punishment at hard labor, or by confiscating their property, such legislation, to be valid, must provide for a judicial trial to establish the guilt of the accused.

Rico from East Los sounds like he still hasn't gotten over the fact that Mexico has lost every war against the US.

Mexico will lose this one too.

More to the point. Does anyone actually believe that our Military will take the side of the illegals? What soldier will engage our own citizens rather than the foreign invaders? LOL That will never happen. That would be considered an unlawful order...
