  •  And this, really?: "Rome found itself (0+ / 0-)

    increasingly  using “illegal immigrants” from outside their nation ..."

    You are really going to link to this crap to support your diary?  Rome was an expansive empire.  First of all, the romans were the "illegal immigrants" marching into other people's territories, planting their banner, and demanding obedience.  Secondly, the world at that time was much less populated.  An entire nation of barbarians could be invited into the empire and allowed to settle vacant land.  And the Goths were invited in - but the neighboring romans were jealous so had more and more restrictions placed on the barbarians, and shit really hit the fan when the emperor has all their male children killed - this didn't go over well with the 'barbarians' serving in the legions.

    So against that backdrop you are going to link to this racist shit: " ... Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, Detroit, Atlanta, New York City, San Francisco, Raleigh and all large cities suffer millions of illegal immigrants.  Uncounted millions of them cannot and do not speak English.  Millions work under the table without paying taxes."

    Did you even read the article you are linking to?
