By using your extreme logic I could say USA belongs only to the native americans. The british colonials and other european settlers were all illegals whom took advantage of the natives, segregated them into reservations, killed a bunch of them off, etc.
Mexico is the same thing. All of south america belongs to the native americans before the spanish conquistadors invaded, conquered, plundered and eventually settled there as colonials. They used the locals for slave labor before bringing in negros from africa. They raised cash crops and stole their gold.
Europe became strong from colonialism. The old world met the new world(south, central and north america) during the middle ages.
You basically dont have a serious point by exaggerating the problem of illegals, and creating double standards as to whom is eligible to be considered american. The democrats are the ones that encourage latinos to cross illegally because its guaranteed votes for them. They also encourage third world asians for the same reason.edit on 14/10/13 by EarthCitizen07 because: spelling correction

Oh I agree with your analysis about illegal immigration. I just dont like people creating double standards with birth rights and who is more american than the other american. A legal american is an american, regardless if they got a green card to work here, became naturalised or were born here. As far as I can tell only the president needs to be american born by american born parents, they cant be naturalised like obama's parents apparently are.
Seems like our fellow ATSers are getting grief over the distress position we've placed our Flags, like Daryllyn's Thread
and Kawrider9's Thread
