    Ha ha 4 million economic migrants won’t change a nation of 320 million today or tomorrow.
    Land of hope and glory for most….as per Donald Duck….quack quack !
    1% of Americans have ever left American land….99% uninformed/misinformed naieve citizens

    Somehow I had imagined it was more than 40 million….guess my imagination on “illegals”
    getting better of me.!
    Now we have Donald Duck ving for job as CIC ….that says it all of the american nation.
    Best thing that ever happened to USA was to teach them Ameringlish…they can now communicate
    with each other……need I remind them that having stole the land from its original inhabitants
    (nomads) they are now calling for a ban on “illegals”….in ameringlish “aliens”….
    Better get off my soapbox before am arrested…..for preaching wrong gospel.

    Que Sera
    God bless america.
