    there were "open borders" back then..... but the treatment of immigrants by small minded bigots was identical to today.
    the same arguments were made as to why we should ship them "back home".. the same sentiments of them being criminals, worthless humans, filthy people, etc... yup, identical to today.
    the primary difference is that today folks skulk behind the law to spew their bigotry.

    I'm sure you'll still believe I have no point... but that's fine.. history and facts are on my side.

    Wonderful historic strawman. No one is arguing they are "worthless humans, filthy people, etc", but they are criminals and they are NOT immigrants. Whole different ball of wax. We do not have open borders now, no nation on earth AFAIK does any longer.

    ah yes, nobody is arguing they are worthless and filthy... they would have to be calling them something like... I dunno, maybe "vermin"?.. for that to be true.

    actually, they are immigrants... "illegal immigrants" i believe is what we call them ..well, that plus vermin and wetbacks.

    it is possible to be opposed to illegal immigration and not be a bigot... it's just that altogether too many folks have chosen to not even try.

    No, they're illegal aliens. And most folks I know who express opposition to illegal aliens do so for ALL illegal aliens, no matter their host country. Being bigotted against criminals, folks who are invading your country, is a natural and appropriate reaction.

    But they are considered as aliens. It is not derogatory in any way shape or form.
