    The right way to immigrate to the USA now is not an option to most people who want to immigrate. It takes tens of thousands of dollars and years and the chances of success are slim unless one has valuable skills or lots of money. Most of our ancestors would not be able to legally immigrate now.

    There should be a big public ceremony to sand blast the poem off the statue since it clearly does not represent the sentiments of most residents of the USA. It can be replaced with "Only special people may stay."

    If times are different, it's because we used to be known as a law-abiding nation, where the laws were meant to be obeyed by all that live in this country. I don't know if Congress used to exempt themselves from laws that applied to everyone else, but they can now. Coddling aliens that enter illegally, and are given special treatment, are a slap to those that still follow our laws on immigration, and that is not only wrong, but unjust.

    My grandparents entered through Ellis Island from Europe, which was a long ride under Spartan conditions, and they were happy to be here, as were the millions just like them. They weren't out demonstrating against the country that took them in - they were learning English and finding jobs in order to be self sufficient. It wasn't that long ago when it was extremely embarrassing for a man to admit he couldn't provide for his family, though he tried his damnedest, or that times were hard around their place. And the women worked just as hard right alongside them. Was it personal pride in themselves that made a difference? I don't know, but they were humans like everyone else, and it wasn't easy
    Do you have any idea what it takes to immigrate to the USA legally.

    There were many demonstrations and protests by immigrant workers in the late 19th and early 20th century and a lot of violent suppression of their attempts to organize for their rights.

    we take in well over 1,000,000 legal residents every year. That's quite enough IMHO.

    Nah. As much as we are culturally different in some ways, we are buds in so many others. I love my neighbours to the south even if they are sometimes a little obnoxious, eh.

    What say you?
    This is very random.
