And all these years I thought I was born in this country. Silly me. And no, Native-Americans are not the "first" Americans. They eradicated (can you say genocide?) the first Americans.

“Unless you’re a Native American”??? What — do they think the Indians spontaneously generated from dust? Either being born here is enough to render one a ‘Native American’ or NO ONE is.

I was born in 1 of these 50 United States. But I can see how to a foreigner who was born in say “Kenya” that might be confusing.

I hate that PC term.

If “American” means of the USA, those peoples are NOT “NA” due to ethnicity or even being in this region. The USA did not exist when their tribes were running about.

As well, what do they call these peoples not in the USA, or North America, or south of the USA?

They are aboriginal, or indigenous. Too bad if that offends.

I'm sitting less than 10 meters from where I was born. I figure I'm within 100 meters of where I'll die.

My family fought against the Feds in the Whiskey Rebellion.

The tax was repealed a few years later.

Irrelevant nonsense. Everyone came from somewhere else. I doubt there is one group living on this earth that still lives in the general area where their first human ancestors lived.

And if one subscribes to the PC out-of-Africa theory, then all groups began in Africa, including the so-called Native Americans.

It’s a world of immigrants.

Critical difference - my ancestors came here through great danger and privation - they built this Nation - never got a dime of governmental assistance.

Now, after a half-century of hard work, gainful employment and paying taxes, I'm supposed to welcome this generation of illegals, who contribute nothing to our tax base, take entry level jobs from American citizens, and strain our "social services" (which we shouldn't even have to begin with - but that's another issue) far beyond the the capacity of our wage-earning workforce to pay.

I say B-U-L-L-S-H-Double Hockey Stick!

Liberals have a difficult time with the word “legally”. Yes my ancestors immigrated to America from Europe, but they did so legally — unlike the lot of illegal immigrants that Liberals (and their Republican cohorts) now seek to give amnesty.

Perhaps this is why the Liberals who work for the Associated Press refuse to use the correct term “illegal immigrant”.

If you’re Obama, nobody can know WHERE you came from ... because you REFUSE to give ONE PAPER LFBC to a federal court lawsuit.

Yet another attempt to balkanize and de-Americanize the place ...make everyone concentrate on their differences, where they “came from,” not where they ARE, or where they should have loyalty to.

Divide and conquer. More of the same old same old.

My ancestors came from a piss poor little town in Germany. I’ve been there to see it. It’s nothing special. I’m DAMN glad those hard headed Germans decided to leave that drab place and relocate to upper state NY so my family could stand a chance and flourish here. It’s nice to know where they came from, but it’s even MORE important to know WHY they left.

As for the Irish side, well, starving, poor and weak is no way to go through life. Wouldn’t you relocate if all you had to eat were rotten, diseased potatoes?

My first "native born" ancestor was born in 1653 at Rappahannock, Virginia. That was 360 years ago. Since his birth there have been 10 descendants down to my grandsons. While this does not compare to "Native Americans" claims of being on this continent for at least 10,000 years, I believe I have plenty of demonstrable evidence that I, my children, and my grandchildren are native to this land. Hey Obozo, FUBO!!!

And to add, grandma always told the story of the German side who demanded that the kids and everyone in the family learn English, once they arrived in the late 1880’s. They had declared that they were now Americans and that was it ...it was considered SHAMEFUL to speak the language of the old country.

I’m sure many families could recount a similar story.

I think we need to consider — WHO is coming here and what is their character?

It’s a stupid argument. A guy born to two Indians on a reservation is no less “from someplace else” than I am. I do not possess the physical molecules of my great grandparents, much less did I personally live anywhere other than here my entire life.

My family was here through at least one Son of Scotland who came over, I believe in the Highland Clearances, and settled in Stephens City, VA. His grandson, my 2-greats grandfather, fought with the 1st Virginia Light Artillery in the Civil War. OMIGOSH! I'm a descendent of slaveholders!

Most of my ancestors were Famine refugees from Ireland who came here, legally, and became stalwart citizens who served in our military, our police, and as firefighters.

For this Marxist Maggot to cast aspersions on my family is beyond all bounds.

He says "You didn't build that." I say my family, like a myriad of other families, built it, I'm damned proud of them, and I will continue in the path they blazed for me!

This is deeply offensive. Putting both people who were born here and people who immigrated here LEGALLY in the same camp as illegals, set apart from Native Americans, is outrageous. ILLEGAL ALIENS ARE CRIMINALS!

They are here because they broke our laws, they insulted our nation. The people whose ancestors go back generations are here because they FOUGHT for this land, and defeated the Native Americans, and those who immigrated here legally are here because they FOLLOWED and RESPECTED the laws of those victors.

This admin makes me want to puke.

I was born in this country, of two parents who were American citizens. I can show you my original birth certificate. Unlike you, Mr. Mystery Man, I didn't come from "someplace else" and pretend I didn't.

The ancestors of "Native Americans" came from someplace else, as well. But we all (originally) climbed off from Noah's Ark.

That is a concept entirely too deep from somebody living large in the White Hut who earned his spurs smoking up the Choom Wagon.

Trouble is most Americans have no clue how this country was founded in any respect...they are no longer taught this in our schools...therefore they easily swallow this administrations every syllable without question.

There is a difference between “illegal aliens” and “Immigrants”...so it’s a none arguement.

No the so called “Native Americans” came from someplace else, too...

No lollypop for you...

The thing is, dumbo, your pet illegal aliens came from someplace else, uninvited, without prior permission...

in other words ILLEGALLY ...they broke the law and continue to break the law...

My forebears were invited by the owners of this land to come here...

First the Dutch, and then the English...

I have no illegal alien ancestors...

1623/4 My Huguenot/Walloons on the New Netherland to NYC had permission fron the Dutch crown to come here..

1630 My Suffolk family came to English colony, MASS with Gov Winthrop..

1645 My Dutch supercargo on a ship belonging to the Dutch West India Company had permission to stay and settle in the Dutch colony, New Netherland...(later New York after 1664)

1680 The English crown sent my refugee Huguenot family here to their colony, New York

1710 Queen Anne of England sent my Palatine German family among 3,000 to the Livinston Manor area, across from Albany in her English colony..

1720 My Catholic Irish family came here from Ulster to the east bank of the Hudson River below Renssalaer indentured to Livingston, who was a rich land owner with the privilige to have “guest workers”

and so on...

I havent found one ancestor who broke into the country...

and my few families to New Zealand from 1850 on are similarly accounted for...all legally English crown and or Church of England sent new settlers...

I came here AFTER jumping through every required hoop and satisfying the immigration laws...

My ancestors came to the front door and got permission to enter when there was a continent still to settle. That is considerably from sneaking in the back window and expecting to stay when the country is pretty full already.

Also just look at what the cultural impact of unlimited immigration was for the American Indians. Didn't work out so well for them.
