Cat,

Iím from Nemacolin, PA. Itís like a lot of other little towns: close-knit, lots of great families, working together in tough times and good times, just trying to make something of themselves.

Everybody in that small town came from somewhere, just like almost everyone else in America. We all had different accents, but we were united by a deep respect for those who work hard and a shared commitment to a country we all called home.

Today, I stood with President Obama as he announced his plan for a commonsense immigration process that creates a road map to citizenship for new Americans who aspire to be citizens.

Join us and sign the pledge:ďWe hold these truths to be self evident that all people have rights, no matter what they look like or where they come from. We pledge to win a road map to citizenship for 11 million new Americans who aspire to become citizens.Ē

Our unions havenít always wanted to talk about this, and I know some of you wonít agree. Thatís OK. Weíre going to keep talking about this issue, keep working on it, and weíll get there together. This is what we do as the labor movement. We protect the most vulnerable among us, and lift all workers up, whoever they are.

Folks in Nemacolin taught me that itís not about what you look like or where you were born that makes you American-- itís how you live your life and what you do that defines you here in this country. No one started out here. People moved their families here to the land of freedom and opportunity to provide a better life for their children and contribute to our culture in this country. Itís hard to move-- to pack up everything and go to a new place takes courage.

As Americans, we all do our part to contribute, and weíre all the better for having hardworking new immigrants as members of our communities. Nemacolin was better for it, and our country is better for it. Letís face it: immigrants aspiring to be citizens are Americans in all but paperwork. Itís time we modernized our immigration laws to catch up to that reality.

This is how we build the labor movement- by standing together. Not as union or nonunion, or Democrat or Republican, or black or white or brown- but as workers.

Itís time to win citizenship for all, and it starts with your name right now:

In Solidarity,

Richard Trumka

It's about whether you immigrated LEGALLY.

Regale us with tales of your peaceful existence with your neighbors, the Navajo and Comanche, prior to the arrival of the paleface.

Repeat your version of our history?

Pass. That's hardly a justification.

The shoe is on the other foot now.

LOL!

You are playing with fire, your hatred for whites (and I presume you really are an oikophobic white liberal) will lead to something resembling the Lebanese Civil War, only far larger and far nastier.

We whites don't like to be reminded about our own less than auspicious arrival here. This is especially apparent in your and the others post(s). I have to remind myself how thin-skinned and humourless most of you are. Instead of a chuckle, a nudge in the ribs brings out the worst in you.

Nudge, nudge! Wink, wink!

Because we conquered the land, we must surrender it to Latin invasion???

Morons like you are the reason why society is headed for the exists, uncontrolled borders brought down the Roman Empire, and if your people had some border security they might still be ruling these continents.

But the victor rights the history, and I don't plan on a Latin victory.

And when we win, the history books will be revised to include the Soultrean Hypothesis as fact, I would not be surprised to see it proven already, except that it pisses on the PC version of history.

Being out-bred is just the way it is when the competition has no self-control, no morals, no family unit and just keep getting larger welfare checks the more bast^rds they poop out.

You can accept the "LOSS" and try to fit in or get run over.

Your choice.

Maybe you'll end up on a reservation. Identical houses with white picket fences and immaculate lawns. Jobs in "marketing". The American Dream! The only downside will be the Japanese tourists taking your pictures from bus windows.

What is a "moment" in history? Five years? Thirty?
As I said to Reader, they started after the smokers in 1971 with the ad ban on TV. By 2004 in Columbus, you could find yourself in front of a judge for the "crime" of smoking on your own private property.
