Re: your aside… Do you pine for those “first 70 years of the Republic” where immigrants weren’t allowed in? Remember who originally put those rules forth — their moral compass was predicated upon a system that allowed the purchase and sale of African men, women, and children. I’m not saying you’re right or wrong, I’m saying precedent shouldn’t guide your agenda. You can condemn the “American Left” of being “cultural puritans” hell-bent on strong arming the nation to follow their moral agenda, but do not pretend the people who created this system didn’t have any biases of their own.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
