Are we all illegal immigrants?

People say Mexicans hopping the border with no permit it illegal immigration, but what did us white folk do to those Native Americans?

  • Mexicans hopping the border without permit is illegal immigration, yes. White people taking over the land from the native Americans wasn't illegal immigration because the land wasn't a country with an established government and regulations regarding immigration, however if you ignore the technicalities it wasn't illegal immigration so much as destroying the native inhabitants of a country and taking over the land because they were selfish. And the native Americans didn't technically originate in America, we derive from a part of Africa when the continents were still relatively one large land mass, so the native Americans migrated into "America" and since there were no humans inhabiting the land they are the natives and the land was truly theirs. Serious answer for a not so serious post.

    OKAY! Ill explain this one more time.
    "Whites" in america are not illegals. We came to america as the legal citizens of other countries through a little thing called colonization. From there, we created our own country. Not even for a second were we illegal immigrants.

    If we were to follow your logic, it would say that everyone who doesn't live in Ethiopia (the location of the oldest known human remains) is an immigrant.

  • Yeah Native Americans were the first true Americans and were the first people to call this place home...

    The pilgrims and whoever else that came here were immigrants but no we are not all imigrants because immigrants are people that are born in another country and then travel to this one (or another one). As long as you're born here which we are you're not an immigrant though someone in your family was.

  • It's not illegal if you kill everyone who claims it's illegal, I guess. That's what history teaches us!

  • back then the world was a very different place and there was no good code of ethics developed. In this day and age there is no excuse for someone to trespass illegally into another country, that is wrong. We have a much better understanding of what's right and what's wrong then we did then.

  • Not at all. Just invaders or colonialists or Conquistadors at early stages.
