Perhaps it would be good for us to have a law to prevent "illegal aliens" from entering our country. It seems a shame that the Native Americans did not have a similar law.

What hypocrites we mortals be, to paraphrase Shakespeare.

Some of the most outspoken opponents of immigration are the "free enterprisers," who hire the cheapest possible labor, especially illegal immigrants.

Our hypocrisy was neatly summed up by the bigoted colonel in “Finian’s Rainbow”: "My family's been having trouble with immigrants ever since we came to this country."
