<quoted text>Funny that the year 1920 is mentioned here. The very next year the U.S. passed a moratorium on immigration. Currently the U.S. is the third most populated country in the world. The U.S. accepts more legal immigrants than all other countries combined. Most from Mexico. Last I checked over 1,500,000 legal immigrants from Mexico each year. The number of illegal aliens from Mexico by far exceeds legal immigration. So the U.S. accepts more legal immigrants from Mexico each year than were ever accepted from the entire continent of Europe. Not including illegals. Furthermore the U.S. has accepted more immigrants from Mexico in the last 2 generations than were ever accepted from the entire continent of Europe throughout the history of the U.S. For the sake of all fairness and in the name of diversity their should be a moratorium on immigration from Mexico for all time. Or at least take away their welfare. If you really want to see illegals and their advocates cry just bring up the subject of ending the welfare.
Holy cow. Two days ago you reported that there are 1 million Mexicans legally admitted each year and now it is up to 1.5 million. Did they all come in the past two days?

And of course it was pointed out to you that the actual number is 146,000. So it seems your statistics now come with a margin of error of 1000%

<quoted text>Memo, come on already. The people who came through Ellis Island did not have visas or documents, but they were given exams and were questioned, and yes, some were sent back home due to various reasons that deemed them unfit to remain. The one thing they did do was to come into this country abiding by the laws of the period. They asked for nothing more than to be given a chance. I have done research on my own family, and have seen records when they became naturalized. They wanted to be given the chance to become a part of the whole, and they did. Their children fought in many wars on my dad's side starting with the Spanish American War. They paid their dues...period. On my mom's side of the family, they were here around the time of the Revolutionary War, and much to my surprise part of the family homesteaded about 100 miles from where I live now. They were DAR members. I didn't know that either until I began my research. The rest of them settled in Illinois and Iowa. The point is, they came and complied with the laws that were on the books at the time. As a memeber of a soveriegn country, I see no reason why we shouldn't expect our laws to be enforced...nobody deserves special treatment.
I don't disagree with you Teddy. The laws were different then, but when people claim their families had visas and/or sponsors a hundred years ago it is simply incorrect.

It has been said that if the same laws were in effect in the 1800's then about 90% of people would not have bothered to go through the process and come here.

We will never know for sure, but I suspect that if the same laws were in effect there would have been people coming illegally anyway. I really can't imagine an Irish father during the 1840's potato famine seeing that his kids had green teeth from eating grass deciding to let them die because he did not have a visa and did not want to commit a civil offense. And if he did what kind of father would he be?

One of their arguments they think they have is comparing all these illegals to good people that moved here from other countries and became real Americans.
These Mexicans are lowering the wages for real Americans and turning this country into a bilingual nation. I resent that. I resent the billions we have to spend for our authorities to find, prosecute, imprison and remove these people destroying our country.
I went to a company today that had a new addition put on to their building. They installed brand new dock plates to unload trucks. The *&^% buttons to operate the dock plates were in English/ Spanish. This bilingual crap is what really pizzez me off the most. If you can't learn our language, GTF out of our country until you do.
I feel exactly as you do, XXX........credit unions, banks and all businesses seem to cater to them and hire bi-lingual help just FOR THOSE THAT DON'T SPEAK ENGLISH !

Some may come for the reason you cite, but many do not. If our laws were enforced, we would not be having this discussion. The fact that there are those who knowing hire illegals, the fact that we have an administration that is giving out prosecutorial deferrals to whomever, and then probably does not track them, much like visa holders, is testament to the fact that nobody wants to really take on this problem in a constructive way. Giving out a blanket amnesty is not the answer. The government can't even run a lemonade stand, how can it choose who should remain and who shouldn't? We all know that not all of those who come here are who and what they claim to be. It is a sticky subject, that took years to get to this point, and will time much time and thought as to how we must fix it. The fist thing would be to seal the border and the agents the authority to do the job they were hired to do. Next, we must abolish birthright citiazenship. We need to limit all immigration until we can figure out what we will do with those who are already here without permission.

Facts are, in spite of what revisionists might claim, that the U.S. has accepted more legal immigrants from Mexico each year for decades now. More immigrants than were ever accepted from the entire continent of Europe in a single year are accepted from Mexico each year. During the peak of European immigration there were strict limits as to how many were allowed to immigrate from any given country and thus most European immigrants were turned back. This can be verified. Genealogy departments at most city libraries have official documents from the peak period of European immigration no matter what revisionists dispute. Death of the West, by Pat Buchanan outlines some of the numbers concerning immigration which I have actually downplayed and sugar coated. Numbers USA will confirm the numbers. And so in fairness to all concerned there should be a moratorium on immigration from Mexico for all time. Numbers aside, we're talking a country that fires upon our border patrol. A country that instructs it's citizens to cross our border and bleed our welfare system.

Turner, couldn't you come up with a source that was a little more official? Tried to contact migrationpolicy.org . The contact link doesn't work. My source 'Pat Buchanan' was the leading adviser to several Presidents as well as the leading political and social expert. For decades when the media wanted the facts they went to Pat Buchanan.

Nobody had to change for European immigrants. They came here and learned the language and culture. It wasn't that easy in the early and mid 60's when there were few places to learn. Today, all you have to do is have a computer and an internet connection and you can learn anything you want.

Now there are so many Hispanics the politicians fear them. It wouldn't surprise me if some of the Surrender First politicians try to make Spanish our official language in the US and demand we abort English like a fetus.

No doubt they would have simply taken the entire family and swam across the Atlantic from Ireland if they could not have entered legally.

The course of the pro-illegal argument as been run. Pro-illegal shills such as Turner alternate their banter between sob stories, name calling, and attempting to put words into the mouths of their opposition. When this fails them they refer us to fly by night communist sources and websites to dispute the facts. As if fictionalized statistics and pictures of smiling brown faces makes it Okay that the Mexican army frequently fires upon our border patrol. Or that we have over 2 million foreign national gang members living illegally in the U.S. Or tens of millions of anchor babies and illegal alien parents dependent on welfare and other socialized programs. Come on out from whatever rock you're hiding under Turner. I'm not near done kicking your ass yet.
