"All the problems we face in the United States today
can be traced to an unenlightened immigration policy
on the part of the American Indian."

really funny, I like it. 5 smiles for funny.
 -- Mike, Norwalk     
    An irony that exposes the futility and ridiculousness of our immigration policy today.
     -- Ben, Orem, UT     
    Right on the button.
     -- bigger, Meltose NY     
    I'm with you Mike, funny but not any truth to it that could hold water.
     -- Anon     
    Now we seem to be in the Indians' place-immigrating ourselves out of our once great existance!
     -- cal, lewisville, tx     
    They probably think its pretty funny that there are now road checkpoints within the US, ostensibly to look for illegal aliens....what a lark! You're papers pleez!
     -- J Carlton, Calgary     
    When I was little, many moons ago, we played cowboys and Indians. That was before the idiocy of political correctness infested our land. Now I suppose it's cowboys and native americans.
     -- jim k, austin     
    Every year at Thanksgiving some liberal newspaper publishes a cartoon showing American Indians greeting the pilgrims as they arrive. In this they attempt to shame anti-illegal immigration advocates by showing how their forefathers were being treated well when they arrived uninvited and how there is some irony in that picture that we should all learn from today. What I learned is that the Indians allowed unchecked immigration to overrun them and look what happened to their societies.
     -- Doug, Calif     
    America allows over one million legal immigrants a year. How can we assimilate such a crowd? A Canadian fellow told me more than 20 years ago that our problems stems from trying to absorb so many people into our towns and cities. Almost the flood that the pilgrims caused the Indians. As an aside, the Indians have some advantages in that they own their houses on the res. and cannot be taxed out of their own homes and property.

    It's a joke, people, but it does make one think...
     -- E Archer, NYC     
    I wonder how he failed in all his campaigns to become President.
     -- warren, olathe     
    Great point Doug.
     -- warren, olathe     
    he cannot be president....he makes sense
