The thing is, and Europeans and Asians just don’t seem to get this, but every single country in the world is made up of immigrants.
What? Um, let’s see, all Brits here raise your hands, let’s look at your little island for a moment. It’s been invaded and immigrated to how many times, exactly? First there where the original peoples, then the Celts, then the Romans, then the Saxons, then the Danes, then the Normans…
Taiwan has been invaded by immigrants how many times? Are the Hakka the “guest people”? How many times has China been conquered and changed by foreigners? All the original Chinese came from a small area near the Yangzte, right? They colonialized the Yueh “barbarian” tribes to the south of them, invaded and immigrated to what is now known as the southern half of China.
Yeah, Bodo, let me do you better, my ancestors founded some of the first Protestant churches in America, 300 years ago before there was a single country on either the North or South continent owned by European conquistadors. I’m no more an “immigrant” than everybody in Poland who had half their borders shifted after WWII. If you were born there, you belong there, it’s your country. You can’t just, say make up some shit about how 2,000 years ago your distantly related great-great-x20 Jewish ancestors owned some plots of land in the middle of a Mediterranean desert, and therefore you have the right to kick people who are already living there off of their land that they’ve been living on for five generations.
Everyone is the descendant of immigrants. So I say, let all borders be open. But, here’s the kicker: if they want to take advantage of our society, they have to chip in to support our society. If that means that there are more Mexican-Americans fighting in Iraq than Anglo-Saxon Americans - which there are - that’s great. They’ve earned their citizenship. The vast majority of Hispanic Americans, I think, and from what I’ve seen, want to assimilate and become normal “white”
Americans. The shrill antagonists are an obnoxious, noxious minority. By the third generation, 95% of all Hispanic Americans speak English like natives (which they are, born on American soil). Ignore the 5% of dumbasses and retards that refuse to assimilate in a country that has given them so many opportunities. Remember that the squeaky wheel makes the most noise. The average, contented Mexican-American doesn’t make any fuss.
