re: #130 HappyWarrior

You’re right in principle, of course; except in practice, American attitudes towards immigration have always been - in one degree or another - subject to the minor modification I’ve added below:

Indeed. We were never formed on the basis of ethnicity, religion, etc. We were formed based on the principles of the Declaration and Constitution and even though the Founders definitely were flawed and prejudiced, that was their intention when they set up the Republic. The colonies were full of white men, women, and children from many different backgrounds. I’ve found way, way distant relatives of mine who settled in Pennsylvania generations before Lexington and Concord.

And the current flap over “immigration reform” is just the latest recurrence of the old fundamental prejudices.
