*Note – I reversed publishing this. The whole article is here if you are so inclined. It was just too heated and too drama-induced of a subject matter. Sorry.
Meanwhile, it was based on this:
“It is no doubt very desirable that we should hold out as many inducements as possible for the worthy part of mankind to come and settle amongst us, and throw their fortunes into a common lot with ours. But, why is this desirable?” … NOT because ‘diversity’ is our greatest value. NOT because big businesses need cheap labor. … “Not merely to swell the catalogue of people. No, sir, it is to increase the wealth and strength of the community; and those who acquire the rights of citizenship, without adding to the strength or wealth of the community are not the people we are in want of.” Madison argued in support of immigrants who would become a “part” of the nation, its languages, and its cultures, and only those who could “incorporate himself into our society.” – James Madison, Article I, Section 8, Clause 4, starting in paragraph 11, [commentary added].
Hope that inspires … even if just a little bit. If you want to read the whole things (for whatever crazy reason), it is here.
