Proof: Our Founders Wanted a White America
Re: president George W. Bush's guest-worker plan [January 2004] to allow millions of illegal immigrants to remain in America:
How did our Founding Fathers feel about the matter of 'who can become a citizen of America?' Let's take a look:
Act of March 26, 1790 (1 Stat 103-104):
"That any alien, being a free white person, who shall have resided within the limits and under the jurisdiction of the United States for the term of two years, may be admitted to become a citizen thereof, on application to any common law court of record, in any one of the States wherein he shall have resided for the term of one year at least, and making proof to the satisfaction of such court, that he is a person of good character..."
It is clear that our Founders wanted a White America, not an America full of Browns, Blacks, Asians and Jews. In fact, America's 'only-Whites-are-American-citizens-with-full-rights' feature did not end until the 14th Amendment was ratified in 1868:
"All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside." Notice that the requirement of needing to be White to be a citizen is gone. In other words, up until 1868 only Whites were 'real' citizens of America.
If our Founders had wanted America to be a racial melting-pot, why did they insist on Whiteness as a criteria for citizenship? Our media and our popular-culture directors know that America was intended to be a White country, which is why they malign anyone who suggests otherwise.
