The U.S. is not a nation of immigrants. I was born here, just like the multitude of the population were born here.

Stating that the U.S. is a "nation of immigrants" is to imply that, since all are immigrants, it would be hypocritical for Americans to be against any type of immigration. It is a moral right of all American citizens to resist the invasion of our country by outside populations that serve to create a burden on us. That our ancestors emigrated here has no burden on our rights to assert ourselves on such subjects.
