Fact of the Day: American Immigration

Until the early 20th century, the United States (like many countries) had "open borders" to immigration. It wasn't until the late 20th century that "illegal immigration" became a major political issue.

Why anyone in their right mind would want to migrate to the USA these days with the maddest and most dangerous leader/rogue on the planet and probably the universe (if little people live on other planets) is in control is beyond comprehension!
The USA of the old days is dead and buried.
Canadians and Mexicans probably are more than happy with the walls - will keep hopefully the YANKS in.

I am a firm believer in restricting illegal immigration. I welcome them all with open arms ONLY IF they go thru the correct procedures to be here...
