The U.S. was created by those who legally immigrated. Legal immigration is a process that is encouraged by the U.S. and those who come to this country legally are welcomed.
My calling the initial European settlers
"illegal immigrants" isn't totally
correct, but the early Europeans who
came to the US didn't exactly check
with the Native Americans if it was
ok to take over the land, etc.
There were people living for a long
time in the part of North America
now known as the USA long before
the European setters came and formed
the US.
