The Last Americanos

Besides, illegal immigrants are to be treasured. They are the last real Americans. Like the first ones, they brave hardship and danger to get here. The first immigrants crossed unforgiving seas in small barques. The last cross a hard border, patrolled by drug gangs and border police. Like Puritans, they come without passports…without work permits…with nothing more than the shirts on their backs and a desire to work. They worship their own gods, and otherwise ask only to be left alone. Do some turn to delinquency, felony and voting? Of course, they do…they’re only human too. But most get along passably well without the benefit of US social welfare legislation, democracy or larceny.
