    If you are born there? If all your grandparents are born there? If you moved there as kid? What if you moved there as grown up or adult? I have a Facebook aquaintance who was adopted from a orphanage in eastern europe and she still identifies as immigrant (she is white not gypsy) but Im not sure whether she is joking or not that she is the immigrant. Her adoptive parents are typical white americans.

    before 1975.....after that, a lot of the ''Americans'' are not true immigrants
    ...we take in a lot of refugees from Vietnam, Bosnia, etc
    ...we even took in Iraqis right after we went to war with them!!!!!!!!!!!
    ...at my work we have ''Americans'' from many other countries...they've been here many years and I can barely understand them, if at all !!!!!
    ..we should've cut immigration long ago--this is not 1850 or 1950 anymore

    ..one guy at my work was unhappy he was not making enough--and he barely spoke any English!!!!
    he's been here for a few years..

    Being American is not just about being here. Its about where your heart and your head are.

    I guess top tier is if you are from a white country then you can also speak another white language and practice that origin culture and you are still totally american? if you are brown or black and do the same you are foreign. This adoptee is very much into her slavic culture. She goes to slavic events, and learns the language etc.

    Youre probably already heavily mixed so you qualify as an American ...But these days I also NOW favor whites ...I blame the left .

    Youre not a New Yorker (NYC only ) unless you have lived there for TEN years or more

    Thats my rule screw everyone else

    I think Texans have a Rule of 25 years

    I worked with a lady from Mexico. She has lived here more than 20 years. She owns property in Mexico and keeps going back to Mexico to buy more. She speaks Spanish at home and as much as possible. Her English still isn't that great after 20 years in the United States. She would probably sound like an American born native if she would have dumped the Spanish. She is not an American citizen and has no desire to become one. Some people haven't really emigrated here. They are just visiting. The new immigrants are different than historical immigrants. They don't want to move here. They just want the economic benefit of living in America without investing anything back into America. I am not sure how I feel about it.

    That is the heart of the matter-do you have your heart in America, or are you just using it for free benefits and money to send HOME?
