Immigration

There are obviously a number of arguments against illegal immigration, but every one of them seems to come from European Americans. One of them is just that they’re not Americans, so they shouldn’t be here. First, American is two whole continents, so they actually are Americans if they’re from Mexico. Also though, European Americans weren’t the first ones here, Native Americans were, the ancestors of European Americans immigrated here just like those illegal immigrants. Someone recently though totally missed the point with this argument, and said that since their ancestors came here legally and all they cared about was whether people enter legally, their argument made sense. Since I doubt people’s ancestors went through Native American legalization processes, they must have gone through other European Americans who were here “illegally.”
