A Quote for Illegal Immigrants

'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 1907
I cannot agree more with the Mr. Roosevelt, you are all welcome in the United States of America, but come here legally and be loyal to the U.S., leave your Mexican flag in Mexico. When you come to our country we citizens expect you to seek citizenship and be respectful of the country we citizens have built. My personal opinion concerning those boys who were asked to remove or flip inside out their American flag shirts is as follows, Cinco De Mayo is a Mexican holiday, not an American holiday, yet I did not hear one person in the media mention this. Why? I do not care if Mexican Americans want to celebrate it, that is their right, but the Mexican flag must never take precedence over the flag of the United States of America. If you do not see the reason no flag can fly higher and more prominently than our Old Glory, please leave the United States of America immediately. AFT
