Default Re: Native American Confronts Protesters on Illegal Immigration

Thirdly what we know as the united states of america today is primarily due to the efforts of the european colonist that migrated to the americas. Therefore, americans have every right to protect the borders and the country their ancestors help contribute to. If european colonist never went to the amrricas it would probably be some 3rd world hellhole....
Whos to say that the naturals that inhabited the Americas didnt have "official" borders or nations of tribes set up within their own laws? They did not play by the colonial laws brought over by Europe.

One could also argue that 200 years from now the US will change for the better due to all the immigrants. Americans where giving the same gripes 200 years ago about all the Italian and German immigrants of the time.
