Gateway Pundit posted a great quote from Teddy Roosevelt on how America should handle immigration.
While his thought is essentially Borg-like, immigrants must fully assimilate into our society, it is 100 percent accurate and it is this process that separates us from the Europeans. America needs a constant influx of people to retain its uniqueness. We also need strong and well enforced immigration laws that keep tabs on who is coming and going from our shores, but that is another argument.
However, on the other side of the pond a bizarre combination of multiculturalism and feelings of superiority are destroying Europe. This is an absolute statement, but in this case it is fact and not hyperbole. Every nation with an immigration problem suffers from the above mentioned situation. They cannot reconcile their liberal, we welcome all the world's people to their historical feeling that they are better then those they so recently ruled as colonial masters.
France is the greatest practitioner of this mind set, hell it even keeps telling the U.S. that we have no ability to handle international situations. The UK, Germany, Belgium and the rest are not far behind.
The joke is these countries cannot see the forest for the trees. They simply refuse to admit that their historical prejudices are creating a situation that will lead to an immigration disaster. The Muslim riots in France were the first sign of this trouble.
The U.S. has had its fair share of bigots and anti-immigrant types, but while these fools can cause temporary problems to newcomers they have never stopped an immigrant group from becoming Americans. Hard work and the realization that the U.S. will treat you properly no matter what creates a constant stream of good citizens.
