Wrong again. My European ancestors. Were invited by Church's and Missionaries and they paid passage and passed several test's to be invited in. The Mexican migration has been as backasswards as anything I've seen. Civilized Society doesn't expect millions of uneducated, poor, culturally incapable of assimilation to come here live illegally in this Country. My family were invited by their Church and were American citizens only when they passed the test's and were ready to lose there citizenship in Europe. Mexicans do not assimilate, don't want to be American and want to change America and it's Culture and laws. We don't want that. We are Patriotic people with good intentions to follow our Laws and Constitution. And we simply can't afford them. No developed Country's in the World allow this to happen to them.<quoted text>
It is not my experience at all. My people consider anybody who came through Ellis Island to be an invader. There is really no difference between the first waves of invaders and the present waves. They are all just people who are trying to take advantage of the country my people built.
It is surprising how little you know about Ellis Island though. Are you one of those people who thinks their family went through some extensive immigration process before they came here? Not the case at all. People just got on a boat and arrived here unannounced. No different then illegal immigrants today. The only difference is that we used to have welcome centers such as Ellis Island where they recorded people's names and gave them a quick once over.
The entire process took between two and five hours and then people were allowed to leave the island. They even had a nice little waiting area where the invaders families could wait until processing was completed.
The invaders were asked a series of 29 questions and the so-called "medical exam" averaged six seconds in length. How detailed do you think that examination was?
After showing that they had at least $18 to their name more than 98% of all invaders were allowed to stay.
If we built welcome centers on the Mexican border and told people they if they waited two hours they would have a 98% chance of entering, do you seriously think we would have anybody would bypass the welcome center.

When Illinois' top political leaders touted a proposal to allow illegal immigrants to obtain driver's licenses, it was painted as public safety measure and had the backing of immigrant rights advocates, who deemed it a positive step in the fight for immigration reform.
