    If I'm my own grandpa doesn't that constitute a double negative thereby making me a legal?

    No point, if I had one I'd have said it.

    So???? Many grandparents came to the U.S. illegally - and??? That was then, now is now. Stop comparing apples to oranges. This is the 21st century and this country does NOT need as many immigrants as it did then - legal or illegal.

    Many back then said we did not need them too.

    It is all about us in the here and now....

    We learn almost nothing from the past...

    No maybe about it. Immigrants, legal and otherwise, have always been demonized.

    The point is that back then we DID need them and now we don't. It does not matter that many thought we did not when in reality we did! But - at the present time this country does NOT need them - even if some say we DO. Of course it's about the here and now. The country is strapped economically and we don't need more poor people coming in to feed off the resources. It would be much more human to try to get THEIR countries to change their mindset and do something for the masses over THERE. What we really need is a 20/25 yr moratorium on ALL migrations.
