Many people feel that way about the problem of illegal immigrants. But I'm actually referring to the settling of these United States. Everyone here is an illegal immigrant, unless you are the descendants of the original "Americans."
Europeans, mainly, came to this land more than 400 years ago and took it for themselves, and have since claimed it as theirs with a total disregard for the native people. "Illegal immigrants" enslaved and slaughtered these native peoples in the name of God, as these people were considered less than human and therefore were better off being annihilated or hidden from the view of the public.
So the next time anyone wants to complain about illegal immigrants, research your genealogy. Research the Statue of Liberty, which displays a plaque that reads in part, "Bring us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses ... ."
