This isn't our country either

April 26, 2013 

Anti-immigration proponents irritate me. Here is a fact. This country was founded on the genocide of Native Americans and built on the backs of slaves. If I were 100 percent Native American I would stockpile copies of the Constitution and American flag for lining my bird cage. We are all illegal aliens.
