We’re all immigrants, unless your Native American. Enough already.
Did you forget that the Indians were also immigrants? Enough Already.

Great article, very interesting and beautiful photos.
All came legally and didn’t come to change our culture but to join our culture and become a part of our culture and many of these stars came for the very reason to be an American star with money instead of a star in their countries with nothing but what the gov’t pays you. Get off our backs with this immigrant thing. Those of us born and raised here have done more for this country than all the numbers of immigrants, we served and died for this country for generations. We made the stars stars and allowed those who built things to do so because we believed enough in capitalism to allow the immigrants of the past to built things just like those of us born and raised here. Those coming in now are coming to use this country instead of building up there own country like we did. We stayed home and built up this country. We didn’t move to another country and work to destroy their culture and use their education system paid for by taxpayers and used us to feed their kids too. So, drop the immigrant worship and thank your lucky stars those of us who are born and raised here haven’t ever handed over our country to the enemy. Citizens first, immigrants second until they show us why they are here. Oh, and our native Americans came here as travelers from the Polynesia islands not as invaders. They took their specially made for the ocean canoes and traveled all over and some landed here in this country and stayed.
Very well said! Im not against immigrants IM AGAINST THEM COMING HERE TO MAKE AMERICA THERE COUNTRY AND TRYING TO CHANGE IT. LIVE BY AMERICA RULES AND LEARN ENGLISH IM NOT GONNA LEARN YOUR LANGUAGE. MY GRANDFATHER WAS AN IMMIGRANT MY GIRLFRIEND WAS AN IMMIGRANT AND THE HAPPIEST DAY IN THERE LIVES IS WHEN THEY BECAME CITIZENS. IF YOU DONT WANT TO LIVE BY OUR RULES GO BACK TO WHERE YOU CAME FROM.
You need to learn to write proper English. Your grammar stinks.
You are so wrong and what you say is just a cover for racism and xenophobia. Thank God they actually have changed our culture or we would be a nation limited to McDonald’s and country music. instead we have more choices than anywhere else in the world which can’t come close to competing with our multi-cultural society. We dominate international culture and it greatly enriches us financially and politically. Immigrants have always been the bravest and most motivated in their countries to our benefit. A lot of the hate coming from people like yourself is that natural born, lazy and “entitled” Americans have trouble competing with them. you should be ashamed of yourself!
As for the Indians North American Indians migrated across the frozen over Bering Straights between present day Russia and Alaska. These Pacific Ocean crossings were few and far between. They impacted South America. Most immigrants I know are hard working and law abiding. The crime rates are lower than the rates for native Americans. The welfare rolls are used overwhelming by native American. If native Americans are too stupid and lazy to compete with these people then that is their problem.
But none of them came here with the avowed intention of destroying our culture and country, and follow that up with pretending to be radicalized, as some suckers believe!
