Interesting how history always seems to repeat itself. And it wasn't just TR, it was David Eisenhower, and Jimmy Carter that shut down immigration for reasons of assimilation and national security.
But now with the progressive socialist liberal democrats blindly on the move to ''transform'' America's civil society, we have a national security risk, crisis coming to our nation that will make the 9/11 attack look a choir boys picnic.
With little or no assimilation of immigrants over the last several decades or more, and with the influx of thousands of middle eastern refugees fleeing the war and literally no vetting of these mostly young men entering our society with back grounds of Islamic terror their entire lives, what can we expect from many of them but a conflict of societies.
What is left of civility when the ideology is glory in death to ones self and to the opposition?
One society is based on a Islamic jihad of hate, terror and death, while the other demands citizens live by the rule of law found in civil societies. I wonder who will win the battle or the war for the soul of our western nations?
'In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language.. And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.'
Theodore Roosevelt's ideas on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907.
