Time to ask for a little help: I had understood that during (or perhaps just before) World War II, Franklin Roosevelt allowed previously illegal immigrants to become citizens, in order to avoid the potential problem of these non-citizens being vulnerable to blackmail by enemy agents, and therefore becoming security risks. However, a quick look around the series-of-tubes reveals no evidence of such an action. Anyone out there know anything about it? Myth? Fact? Exaggeration?
Of course, I'm interested because of recent suggestions that the US should resume rounding up immigrants and placing them in camps for deportation, as was supposedly done in the 1940s and 1950s.
Hmmm...I need to add something of value here...how about a link to Mark Thompson's case in favor of open borders for the the US.
