    I am a US Citizen. My ancestors were LEGAL immigrants welcomed by that statue and poem in NY harbor. They passed health checks, financial independence, and US sponsors.

    “Native” american were not here first. They were the first Illegal Aliens:

    And, this comment will probably not be posted because this blog is obviously run by Illegal Alien sympathizers and want only one viewpoint express.

    2 different accounts responding as the same person? Typical sock puppet antics of the radical, racist right-wing.

    Economist at HSBC notes in a dismal opinion piece that immigrant workers will be needed as Baby Boomers retire.
