Wikipedia is a bullshit "source". Invalidated. Could not possibly give a shit about any of the rest of it, since it's irrelevant to the question of things happening PRIOR to all of that. Fact remains that none of those groups of people constituted any sort of sovereign nation at the time of colonization, nor did any of them have anything resembling a codified law against immigration at that time, ergo none of the colonists could have been "illegal" in any sense of that word. End of story. You lose. Case closed.
