As we know, there is a big issue on immigration,there are people who oppose it but, they do not know the troubles immigrants face.
Being the daughter of an immigrant. I have seen the struggles there are with immigrants they come to the unitied states to work and provide a better future for their children and better living conditions it angers me to the core when people say immigrants are lazy, taking the jobs but they speak with out knowing. They forget that everyone in this country with exception of the native americans come from immigrants seeking the exact same thingthey have no right to judge and say things when they themselves come from immigrant ancestors.

Even the Native Americans are immigrants. Most of them came from Spain. To say that we are a nation of immigrants is to say that all nations are nations of immigrants, thus no country has any soverignty.

What exactly is your point that this country was founded on immigrants? Do we have any soverignty, and are the borders simply metaphorical borders?

I wouldn’t have a problem with immigrants if they immigrated to the right way. I don’t think that they should be allowed to stay if they ran across the border. As long as they did it by becoming a citizen I would have no problem at all.
