We (the United States) wouldn't exist without immigration. We are all immigrants. Except the Native Americans. Whom if which, immigration wasn't so good for.

Africa for Africans, Asia for Asians. The country was built by white Europeans. It was just a piece of land before we arrived, it wasn't the US.

Every country has immigration laws and once they are broken it is a hinderance to the nation at hand. There has to be order and rules obeyed. Excusing an illegal alien because the US has welcomed immigrants in the past is like..... letting the guy with the biggest gun play policeman because cops have guns.
