The present immigration problem have to be settle for does who are in this country for more than 10 years with children born in America. And the 8 years above will be issue 2 years visa than change legal status after 10 years. The rest will be given 1 years extent visa than leave the country. After that Enforce Law for overstay fine, jail than deportation. And does illegal who give birth will be deport with baby after 6 month.Than Hire illegal or landlord rent illegal will impose heavy fine.This will be the better way to stop illegal come in.

That civilization is sample for the world.
The history of Japan encompasses the history of the islands of Japan and the Japanese people, spanning the ancient history of the region to the modern history of Japan as a nation state. Following the last ice age, around 12,000 BC, the rich ecosystem of the Japanese archipelago fostered human development. The earliest-known pottery found in Japan belongs to the J&#333;mon period. The first known written reference to Japan is in the brief information given in Twenty-Four Histories in the 1st century AD. The main cultural and religious influences came from China.

At least the states would be getting some of that "welfare" money back in taxes then. And the food exemption can easily be changed.
Make everything sold subject to the sales tax, including services like haircuts & oil changes etc.
Not only does that capture taxes from the poor, it also gets taxes from illegal immigrants and drug dealers etc.
The problems in America are more then just adding more taxes, which the government has. And those who are honest pay the freight. There are thousands of little cuts that turn us into a terminal patient. I will give you an example and this permeates what I experienced just working and going to school in the inner city in my past. Last year I went on a cruise. Saw a person lying and using a handicapped room. No guilt. Talked to another that stated he and his family will not pay any gratuities to the people who work to make his cruise enjoyable. And he is not alone. Can't tell you their backgrounds. Because I would be a "hata". Of course these costs are passed on to others in many ways. And this goes on all over America and crosses all lines. it is jsut the percentages of who cheats. So therefore the system you love and on paper sounds so good can not endure as people who complain about how unfair the system is, are part of the problem to stand with their brothers and sister trying to earn a living also. Like unions who fight for their brothers and yet have several grandfathered layers of salary and benefit packages for some reason. The auto industry was like that. there is no real brotherhood when pushed.

It is a deep thing that people still celebrate the survival of the early colonists at Plymouth — by giving thanks to the Christian god who supposedly protected and championed the European invasion. The real meaning of all that, then and now, needs to be continually excavated. The myths and lies that surround the past are constantly draped over the horrors and tortures of our present.

Every schoolchild in the United States has been taught that the Pilgrims of the Plymouth Colony invited the local Indians to a major harvest feast after surviving their first bitter year in New England. But the real history of Thanksgiving is a story of the murder of indigenous people and the theft of their land by European colonialists–and of the ruthless ways of capitalism.

You'd hate a whole lot less if you stopped filling your head with the crap you keep posting.
Harvest celebrations are practiced worldwide. Children were taught the story of the Pilgrims and Indians having a harvest festival for a number of reasons, but primarily because they can't mention God or religion in schools or apparently allow students to acknowledge that religion was once preached by our government leaders and the Capitol building was once used for Sunday services.
There were national days of prayer and thanksgiving, especially throughout the Revolutionary War, but these were usually solemn events that involved prayer and fasting, not feasting.
George Washington gave a speech on Nov. 26, 1791 that was decidedly religious, leading a national day of prayer and thanksgiving in the belief that the Creator had smiled upon this newly minted nation and lead them to create the government that had recently been formed with the signing of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the three branches of government that were all supposed to keep each other in check, all supposedly at the whim of the voters.
Thanksgiving didn't become a national holiday until the 1930's, and was designated as the third Thursday in November because it was Thurday, Nov. 26th, 1791 that Washington gave that Thanksgiving speech.

The Anglo-American population poured into Texas after the revolution, making the Tejanos a distinct minority in their native land.

The most traumatic effects of the revolution were the initial wave of racial conflict and the resulting land exchange between Anglo and Tejano. At first, men fought for political principle, but soon political principle became racial polarization as well

When the Texas army arrived there a year later, Anglo troops crashed, robbed, and plundered the homes, driving Tejano families out. http://www.tamu.edu/faculty/ccbn/dewitt/adp/a...

"Land that had been in Tejano hands for generations was soon transferred to Anglos, often through threat or out right fraud."

From 1836 until Texas statehood a decade later, Tejano communities in Victoria, Refugio, Goliad and other places were subjugated by Anglo settlers, Montejano wrote. In 1839, 100 Tejano families were forced to abandon their homes in Nacogdoches and flee south.

Even such heroes of the revolt as Juan Seguin were not exempt. As mayor of San Antonio in 1840, he grieved over the treatment of Tejanos by Anglo newcomers.

"Could I leave them defenseless, exposed to the assaults of foreigners, who, on the pretext that they were Mexicans, treated them worse than brutes?" Seguin wrote. In 1842, after numerous death threats, Seguin left his native San Antonio for exile in Mexico. http://www.tamu.edu/faculty/ccbn/dewitt/adp/a...

Really? That's right folks there are still Santa Anna’s amongst the "Hispanic" population. What's most embarrassing is how proudly they acknowledge it. Such Santa Anna’s bring to mind some of the native tribes who "helped" Cortez, Columbus, the Pilgrims, and the U.S. Embarrassing ain't it? In the U.S., these types of individuals are adored, like Pocahontas and Sacajawea, however, among the majority of Native Americans; such persons are despised and labeled as traitors like La Malinche and Moctezuma. While Europeans conveniently refer to such individuals as kind, generous, friendly and helpful, Native Americans view them as traitors. You can't blame such poor pitiful present day souls, desperately trying to fit in and be accepted by other racial groups, and what better way to be accepted than to demonstrate mutual disdain against a targeted people. Congratulations, I’m sure the people that have your support are going to treat you well; just as good as they treated the foolish Texicans.

The reason they talk about the pilgrims and not an earlier English-speaking colony, Jamestown, is that in Jamestown the circumstances were way too ugly to hold up as an effective national myth. For example, the white settlers in Jamestown turned to cannibalism to survive. Not a very nice story to tell the kids in school. The pilgrims did not find an empty land any more than Columbus "discovered" anything. Every inch of this land is Indian land. The pilgrims (who did not even call themselves pilgrims) did not come here seeking religious freedom; they already had that in Holland. They came here as part of a commercial venture.

One of the very first things they did when they arrived on Cape Cod -- before they even made it to Plymouth -- was to rob Wampanoag graves at Corn Hill and steal as much of the Indians' winter provisions as they were able to carry. They were no better than any other group of Europeans when it came to their treatment of the Indigenous peoples here. And no, they did not even land at that sacred shrine down the hill called Plymouth Rock, a monument to racism and oppression which we are proud to say we buried in 1995

The first official "Day of Thanksgiving" was proclaimed in 1637 by Governor Winthrop. He did so to celebrate the safe return of men from Massachusetts who had gone to Mystic, Connecticut to participate in the massacre of over 700 Pequot women, children, and men.

About the only true thing in the whole mythology is that these pitiful European strangers would not have survived their first several years in "New England" were it not for the aid of Wampanoag people. What Native people got in return for this help was genocide, theft of our lands, and never-ending repression. http://www.uaine.org/

Show up at Japanese customs without a passport and tell them that story and see what it gets you.
The term "federally recognized tribe" means an Indian or Alaska Native tribe, band, nation, pueblo, village or community that the Secretary of the Interior acknowledges as an Indian tribe pursuant to the Federally Recognized Indian List Act of 1994 (25 U.S.C. 479a).

A recent Federal Register (FR) notice published the current list of 564 tribal entities recognized and eligible for funding and services from the Bureau of Indian Affairs by virtue of their status as Indian tribes. The listed entities are acknowledged to have the immunities and privileges available to other federally acknowledged Indian tribes by virtue of their government-to-government relationship with the United States as well as the responsibilities, powers, limitations and obligations of such tribes.

The United States has a unique legal relationship with Indian tribal governments as set forth in the constitution, treaties, statutes, executive orders and court decisions. Since the formation of the union, the United States has recognized Indian tribes as domestic dependent nations under its protection. The federal government has enacted numerous statutes and promulgated numerous regulations that establish and define a trust relationship with Indian tribes. Our nation has recognized the right of Indian tribes to self-government. As domestic dependent nations, Indian tribes exercise inherent sovereign powers over their members and territory. The United States continues to work with Indian tribes on a government-to-government basis to address issues concerning Indian tribal self-government, tribal trust resources and Indian tribal treaty and other rights.

There is no archeological evidence of cannibalism in Jamestown. There was one story about one guy who went insane and supposedly ate his wife, a story that was added to and embellished. It's your mind. If you want to polute it with BS and swallow it as fact, that's your choice.
The Wampanoag Indians did help the Pilgrims. They had lost up to eighty percent of their population to the plague, and saw in the Pilgrims the opportunity to form a treaty, largely in order to protect themselves from the Narragansett tribe.
The natives of this land didn't all live in peace and unity. Far from it. Anglos were known to be here on the east coast as early as the year 1002 and there are many instances of anglos and natives banding together against common enemies. There is also ample evidence of eastern tribes adapting to the ways of anglos...but all of this is irrelevant today.

"There is no archeological evidence of cannibalism in Jamestown....." Riiight!

Ironically, it is the English who demonstrably resorted to cannibalism in the early days of the Jamestown colony. When grisly reports reached England, carried by runaways on board the Swallow in the summer of 1610, they caused a stir. To allege cannibalism among one's erstwhile comrades was suspect in men guilty of deserting a beleaguered colony, but their tales won credence in London. If exaggerated, they were fundamentally accurate. When dearth and disease swept through Jamestown, reducing its population perhaps by 80 percent in the catastrophic Starving Time of 1609–10, some individuals had turned to cannibalism out of hunger. As Percy and other survivors told it, sporadic cannibalism was a manifestation of a partial breakdown in civilized society in the face of inescapable disaster: http://www.history.org/foundation/journal/win...

"The Wampanoag Indians did help the Pilgrims. They had lost ..." Riiiiight.

Today is a time of celebrating for you…but it is not a time of celebrating for me. It is with heavy heart that I look back upon what happened to my People…The Pilgrims had hardly explored the shores of Cape Cod four days before they had robbed the graves of my ancestors, and stolen their corn, wheat, and beans…Massasoit, the great leader of the Wampanoag, knew these facts; yet he and his People welcomed and befriended the settlers…little know that…before 50 years were to pass, the Wampanoags…and other Indians living near the settlers would be killed by their guns or dead from diseases that we caught from them…Although our way of life is almost gone and our language is almost extinct, we the Wampanoags still walk the lands of Massachusetts…What has happened cannot be changed, but today we work toward a better America, a more Indian America where people and nature once again are important.

What arrogance, ignorance and what an overwhelming state of denial. Because a peoples or a nation have conflicting points of views on how to go about governing themselves, does NOT mean another nation or people are welcomed to destroy their culture, their people, their race, their language, MUCH LESS take their land. It is blatantly obvious, that not much has been learned from the Vietnam war, the current Syrian conflict or the Iraq war. Unbelievable.

Wallace led the Scottish rebellion against Edward I and inflicted a famous defeat on the English army at Stirling Bridge. He is remembered as a patriot and national hero.

William Wallace was born in the 1270s in Elderslie in Renfrewshire In 1296, Edward I of England had taken advantage of a succession crisis in Scotland and imposed himself as ruler with an English administration. Within months, Scottish unrest was widespread.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/historic_figures...

there are many instances of anglos and natives banding together against common enemies...... RIIIIGHT!

Between 1880 and 1902, 25 off-reservation boarding schools were built and 20,000 to 30,000 Native American children went through the system. That was roughly 10 percent of the total Indian population in 1900.

By this time, 460 boarding and day schools had been built near the reservations, most run by religious organizations with government funds. All told, more than 100,000 Native Americans were forced by the U.S. government to attend Christian schools where tribal languages and cultures were replaced by English and Christianity.

Yet, despite the negative aspects of boarding schools, many students stubbornly held on to their tribal identities. Studies have shown that many students went back to their reservations and became leaders in tribal politics.

Others found that getting to know members of other tribes contributed to their sense of kinship and pan-Indian identity. That sense of identity with other tribes led directly to the American Indian Movement (AIM) activism of the late 20th Century over political and cultural self-determination.
