It's blastfamy to compare Ellis island with what's happening now. They were vetted, interred and check for diseases. They had to have a job or ties to a Church. They did not expect the Country to pay there way. They immediately learned English and never spoke there foreign languages outside there homes. If they did there family would scold them. They were decent human beings that didn't carry drugs into this Country, set up drug houses, tag every fence in the country, destroy beautiful part's of this Country. Steal everything in sight, anchor for welfare and use my tax's to support there anchors. The differences are incomparable.No amnesty to lawbreakers or thieves ever.

Why? Isn't Ellis Island opened back up for bidness? To determine, within minutes, if an immigrant is eligible to emigrate or not. Why force immigrants to wait for decades? This only precipitates the situation we have now: Where immigrants are forced to go underground. Complete stupidity.

MAYBE THE REASON YOUR COUNTRYMEN ARE EXPECTED TO WAIT IS THEY AREN'T WELCOMED IN THE FIRST PLACE. Immigration is about bringing educated, prosperous people here to improve this Country. Immediate gratification is the Latino mantra. We would never have agreed to legally bring half of Mexico/south america's poor into this country and you know that. But they are crooks. All they know is theft and deception. Taking other peoples legal SS#'s and using them for identity. It's one thing they break in, it's all the followup crimes they commit after entering. We don't want them here period.

If that had been the rule of the day, 99.99% of your European trash ancestors would have been turned away. But unfortunately for us, and, fortunately for you, my ancestors had pity on your pitiful, putrid ancestors who washed up on our shores back in 1491. They cared for your diseased, putrid, scummy ancestors and were repaid with genocide. Jesus, thanks.

Talk about bottom feeding ancestors, your cess pool of a country can't even govern itself. Slither on back across, pendejo, we don't want cockroaches here.
