I had no epiphany, I understood that even American Indians are descendants of immigrants, that welfare is not a racial thing, that legal immigration is both a good thing and different from illegal immigration, and that coming through Ellis Island is the exact opposite of open borders long before either of us posted in this thread1. This might be one of the dumbest things you've ever written. Of course we are a nation of citizens once we arrive here. We are all immigrants from somewhere unless you have Native american blood. All those people who came through Ellis island just showed up and came in. No applying for asylum . Talk about open borders. You would have been peeing yourself
2. This is the false dichotomy you people are always going on and on about how immigrants drain social services which is not the case at all. In fact they add to the economy.
3. You re confusing two seperate ideas here. This falls under the category of your false narrative of the black welfare queen.
Seriously to think you thought you were on to some great epiphany here is laughable.
You should just delete this thread
