Jimbob:

That was the right thing to do and I honor you for it.

My mother was an immigrant, although most folks wouldn't know it as she speaks with a mid-Atlantic American accent. She was naturalized in 1951, and worked hard to lose her accent and become an American. She has worked her whole life, paid taxes, and now in her retirement does a lot of volunteer work.

She is as pro-American as anybody I know (in fact, she isn't even currently speaking to her sisters because of their government's current anti-U.S. bias.). I also have a coworker from another part of the world who recently became a naturalized citizen who is in the very same boat; more pro-American than just about anybody I know.

So I guess I have a hard time accepting the anti-immigrant bias I hear from some folks. I'd rather be around some recent immigrants than some Mayflower-immigrant-descendents.
