Alaska was purchased, as was the Louisiana Territory.

Spain's colonial crimes were far worse than England's and the USA's and anyone else's, history class seems to have largely ignored.

The rest was stolen, in most cases in direct violation of treaties we had with the various parties involved.

Consider how many Vikings actually made it to North America, and what kind of shape they were probably in when they made landfall in those dragon boats of theirs. It's not irrational to suspect that a couple of little league teams with wiffleball bats could have kicked them out.

And technically, every human in North a South America is an immigrant. Human beings are not and never were a native species to the two continents. We would actually be classified as an invasive species, arriving via land bridges to the north and boats from the Pacific during the ice ages and then various waves later on from Europe and possibly China.
reply

Technically you can say that for the rest of the planet except for the African coast of the Red Sea.

Also, the aquatic ape is an invasive wherever it goes, including inland off those shores.

Humans have been in the Americas for 35,000, if not longer.
Bison, deer, wolves, cats, bighorn sheep, and much of the fauna people think of as natives are themselves invasives, migrating here over various glaciations.

Actually, if that was true than there would be no need for a peer review process. Additionally, scientists with multiple degrees disagree with one another all the time. I'm willing to bet that you are not a fan of Answers in Genesis, but you cannot deny that they have degrees. I think it is fair to say that a person's hypotheses and theories must be judged by their adherence to logic and evidence, and not by the person's credentials or background.

Technically, 'illegal immagrints' are a 'problem' because they pose a threat. Who else posed a HUGE threat to the people who ALREADY lived here? Oh, yeah, all the white natives. Then we STOLE people from Africa-legit illegal-and murdered the Natives. Yet we're worried about people who were being persecuted and didn't have two years to fill out paperwork to come to America, because they would be killed before then? Wow, America, wow.

The problems with this argument is pretty similar to the racism argument. My ancestors didn't own a single slave and didn't take land from anybody. Millions of other people can say the same thing. So why are we being held responsible for the actions of people whom we aren't even related to?

And "conquer" is not the same as "stolen," yet some people seem to get those two words mixed up, like the white man stole this land when in fact they conquered it.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh............so you're a Native American hater. Let me guess: you probably think that Columbus came in and asked the Natives nicely for their land? "The "natives"...not so much." What the heck do you mean by that? There's this page you could go to: https://web.stanford.edu/group/bioaims/images/Native%20American%20Scientists.pdf
Or you could check out some famous people of Native decent, like Jimi Hendrix ("The Native American Music Hall of Fame actually inducted Hendrix as their first member! Through his grandmother, this famous musician was one-quarter Cherokee. While his father was African-American, Jimi's mother had Cherokee and Aztec blood."), or "The Cyrus family is quite vocal about their Native American heritage. Miley and her father, Billy Ray Cyrus, claim they are part Cherokee." No, I don't know how credible these sources are, but my point is, you shouldn't hate on Native Americans. Keep in mind that no matter how the colonists came, they were here first.

A native hater? Because I know a little something about the people that lived here before the Europeans arrived and I said some things you don't like, I'm a hater? Lol!

The "natives" were very violent toward each other. They were here thousands of years before us and did nothing but murder and [email protected] each other for land. They were brutal toward each other.

But the evil white man...no, they were the devils that violently took "their" land. Too bad.

Who said they weren't violent toward each other? Are you suggesting that if us and Mexico suddenly got in a war, and then, like, France settlers came in and slaughtered every citizen of the USA, they were totally okay in doing it, because we were violent anyway? Or if during the American civil war, if, like, Spanish colonists had come over and killed us all, who cares? I mean, we were fighting anyway. The Natives fought because what kind of country would they be if everything was happy and peaceful and perfect? Seriously, are you saying that you can kill someone if they're already being violent-toward someone else, whom you've never met, and who agreed to the fight, and who had a running thing going? Christopher Columbus had no excuse for what he did, and we don't have an excuse for turning down all illegal immigrants. The ones that are smuggling in weapons and drugs? You can arrest them, they deserve it. But the fact is, we're wasting time on the ones who just didn't have two years to fill out paperwork. It's like the world has forgotten that the citizens of America smuggle more drugs than the immigrants do...

Okay, so Southern Democrats were who supported slavery, and "In the 19th century, Southern Democrats comprised whites in the South who believed in Jeffersonian democracy." In case you don't know what the Jeffersonian democracy is, "The Jeffersonians were deeply committed to American republicanism, which meant opposition to aristocracy of any form, opposition to corruption, insistence on virtue, with a priority for the "yeoman farmer", "planters", and the "plain folk". They were antagonistic to the aristocratic elitism of merchants, bankers and manufacturers, distrusted factory workers, and were on the watch for supporters of the dreaded British system of government. Jeffersonian democracy persisted as an element of the Democratic Party into the early 20th century, as exemplified by the rise of Jacksonian democracy and the three presidential candidacies of William Jennings Bryan. Its themes continue to echo in the 21st century, particularly among the Libertarian and Republican parties."
Democrats and Libertarians are different, by the way. Libertarians are described as sort of a mix of both parties. So, in a way, the ancestors of the modern-day Republican party supported slavery more than the ancestors of the modern-day democratic party. And while some of the slaves were sold as punishment, the majority of them were kidnapped, then shipped off to America, where they went to the plantations in the South, where they were owned by.... well, democrats, but it's been said that "Since then, the only vestige of that era left on the party is the name “Democrats”. The party itself bears no resemblance at all to the party of that era." So, none of your arguments are valid. And I am moraley opposed to slavery, and I am highly insulted that you think me-a twelve year old-would have already chosen a party. I am not so close-minded as some (not you, just some people I know) as to make a decision this early in my youth. And it's not bad the USA has immigration laws, it's bad that we are fighting ALL illegal immigrants, instead of the ones that actually pose a threat, as well as the legal immigrants that pose a threat. But you can have your opinion.

You probably haven't, but if you have, I'll thank you kindly not to judge an entire party off of one or two people.
And if you had read it, you'd know that never once did I say that the parties switched sides. On the contrary, I said that the modern-Democrats sort of branched off of the Libertarians and formed the group we know today. Who ever said that they switched sides? Certainly not me.

But like I said before, most of the Black slaves were actually kidnapped. If you want to believe that they were all sold because they were meanies, go right ahead. The fact remains that A TON of them were simply kidnapped, then transported to the US. Toward the end, it wasn't even legal, but it happened anyway. And what kind of name is libtard? Is that supposed to be an insult? Because I'm sorry, but I can't take you seriously, because you didn't use capital letters in like three or four places that you should have, and that's like a kindergarten lesson.

Just wanted to share you something from yourdictionary.com
Immigrant- An immigrant is defined as someone who moves to a new country.
Colonist- The definition of a colonist is someone who was an original settler in a colony or currently lives in a colony.

The USA started off as 13 colonies...And the people who lived there were colonists. There is a difference between colonists and immigrants. Therefore your argument is invalid.
reply
5 ups, 2 replies
The colonists were not illegal because there was no country. Therefore no immigration laws. You are referencing a totally different time and people vs the people who live in the same geographical area known as the United States of America. The USA is not a rag tag group of 13 colonies. We are a Sovereign Nation. And as a sovereign nation, we reserve the right to protect our borders and enforce our laws. If you don't like our laws, there are plenty of other sovereign nations that you can live in.

Any evidence that illegal immigration is doing horribly in Western Europe?

It's part of the vetting process. We can't just have anybody and everybody wander on in with no checks and balances. You don't have to be rich to become a citizen. If you want to be here bad enough, you'll get the money. And that's only part of the process.

Ummm, yes, it's actually quite obvious the problems western Europe is having with immigration. Western Europe is being turned into the middle east...you know, one of those sh!thole countries President Trump may or may not have referred to.

Still, the system is very dubious, as many of the people trying to enter come from a background of living in an impoverished nation. I remember when a student from my school who was an illegal immigrant was deported after running away from El Salvador, which is in such a horrid state...

Many of the refugees in Western Europe come from badly ruled Middle Eastern nations with dictatorial laws. Ever heard of Chechnya?

Usually criminals in America are American citizens, not illegal immigrants.

You assume too much. My question did not have to do with immigrant criminals at all, It is also not an unreasonable question. It was merely an example to point out that we all have something to protect, and lock out others while being selective on who we allow to enter. Why should a country not enjoy the same freedom of it's citizens?

Maybe I did. I'll admit that. However, a country isn't a living thing the way its citizens are.

A country isn't a being to be sure, but it is a living thing. The point is you choose to be more reckless with the country than you do your home. That may be fine for you, that recklessness may never visit your doorstep but there area few hundred million others that your decision could effect. I'm not anti-immigration, I'm anti-blind immigration.

This is America: Land of the Fee and Home of the Slave.
Regardless of what think about the immigration system or the other laws of the land, this is a nation of laws that should be followed.
A friend of mine is going through the immigration and naturalization process and he told me that he has paid more than that in application and travel expenses and his case isn't closed yet. So if they only paid two grand they had it easy.

Just reading these comments is sad - people really have no good concept of values, morality, or human rights. I am sure that almost everyone here thinks that they have a good set of these things - but how many of them can withstand the paradoxes of human experience?

Even something like immigration is hard.

I'm certainly not saying that I have easy answers for ALL things - but this amount of understanding I see here is just sad. Feel free to disregard my opinion - feel no need to defend yourself from someone on the internet. But if this comment did anything - may I ask you to think seriously about ethics? And eternity? And human life?

The United States takes in more illegal aliens and sets them up with tax payer's money, then any other country. Don't believe me? Read the statistics on how generous the United States is compared to every other country on the planet.

I made no ethical claim nor did I make a claim about anything of that nature. I merely ask you think of ethics more. I didn't say anything about what side ethics is on. You are reading into this. That is not necessary.

Memes are supposed to be funny, and it seems that this one has no sarcastic part to it, or something along those lines. I do not see it as a joke, because it has no qualities of a joke.

The refugee program that gives Syrian millionaires food stamps and cash payments is a laughing disgrace. There are people coming here as “refugees” buying $$10,000,000-20,000,000 houses, while getting food stamps and cash assistance AND IT IS LEGAL!!! It has to stop and should have never started.

I try to stay out of contentious debates, but I'll put this out here and move on: my husband is a Native, and on the matter of illegal immigration, one of the tribal elders said, white guilt is a funny thing; it makes you feel superior to what your ancestors may have done to the original Peoples, but the guilt is only as good as what you learn from it. He went on to ask Why would anyone who truly feels guilt about the conquering of one society turn around and support it being instituted against their own children and their children's children? "Don't these people ever learn?" was his final word. I thought it was a wise observation, and I will leave it at this.

Refugees to America are still legal immigrants. I don't think refugees should come here with the idea of living in America and not assimilating into our culture. If they *have* to come here and they assimilate and become profitable members of society I am all for those refugees coming to America. The ones who survive off food stamps/welfare and never assimilate should go back to their countries once the "social unrest" that drove them to the USA is over.

not always possible - and many countries (certainly wouldn't ring fence the USA for this ) will cherry pick ones to keep. Illegals are a no brainer as they are illegal. However they are used as a political tool

Trump wants to cut legal immigration too.

Let's remember his grandfather ran hotels in the Klondike gold rush that contained brothels and opium dens. And that Trump's mother and aunt were illegals, who came here on tourist visas and "overstayed."
