"Prejudice against new immigrant groups"<quoted text>
Prejudice against new immigrant groups is a natural aspect of our psychology. What's natural, however, isn't always good, and we can try to reduce inclinations to those prejudices we find morally problematic. Throughout history, immigrant groups that were once stigmatized very often end up accepted into society, because people come to understand that they aren't actually posing the threats they were once thought to pose. It helps when immigrant groups begin to adopt the norms and practices of their new homes, and the reduction of threat perceptions is furthered as people begin to form friendships across group lines.

The only immigration group I object to is the 12-20 million illegal aliens in our country who choose to ignore our immigration laws and that's not being prejudice.
The inscription at the base of the Statute of Liberty concludes, "I lift my lamp beside the golden door!" It says nothing about welcoming people who bypass our entry doors by climbing walls, swimming rivers and sneaking under border fences.
