Immaterial. They were contributing members of society. They were integrated into our society. The IN restaurant owner employed 20 people. The nurse in CA was well respected, married to a citizen, and had three kids on the honor roll.psk836 wrote: ↑Sat Nov 21, 2020 11:59 amWere they here ILLEGALLY?nolaxride wrote: ↑Fri Nov 20, 2020 9:38 pmWere the nurse or the restaurant owner who were deported, violent criminals?barrysoetoro wrote: ↑Fri Nov 20, 2020 8:48 pmThey're all criminals, they're all breaking the law dumbass!nolaxride wrote: ↑Fri Nov 20, 2020 3:37 pmThe criminal element is a very small percentage of the illegal immigrant community.

The GOP passed the 14th Amendment to stop Democrats from denying freed slaves citizenship.
Yes we WERE a melting pot, but lately it has become politically expedient to change America into a Smelting Pot, balkanizing us into our various and multiple different groups for maximum grievance and special groups needing government protection and loyalty payments.
