My Slovak grandfather came over as an indentured servant of the Aultman-Taylor Machinery Company in Mansfield Ohio for his tool and dye and machining skills.

How does that kind of thing fall into the thinking about immigrants and whether wanted or not?

There were all kinds of reasons for people to come to America, it’s sickening some now want to simplify it all down to calling everyone illegal aliens. Two words that are now nothing but an excuse to ‘other’ people and put them in a category of not my problem, they are not like us and I don’t care.

This country is as cold as ever.

There’s always been a nativist strain of American politics. Remember Daniel Day Lewis’s character in Gangs of New York complaining not only about the recently freed slaves, but the dirty Irish who were fouling up his fair city.
