Hamilton! What the Real Alexander Hamilton (Who was Not an Immigrant) Said about Immigrants

Protesters should distribute copies of what the real Alexander Hamilton said about immigration:

"... foreigners will generally be apt to bring with them attachments to the persons they have left behind; to the country of their nativity, and to its particular customs and manners. They will also entertain opinions on government congenial with those under which they have lived; or, if they should be led hither from a preference to ours, how extremely unlikely is it that they will bring with them that temperate love of liberty, so essential to real republicanism? There may, as to particular individuals, and at particular times, be occasional exceptions to these remarks, yet such is the general rule. The influx of foreigners must, therefore, tend to produce a heterogeneous compound; to change and corrupt the national spirit; to complicate and confound public opinion; to introduce foreign propensities. In the composition of society, the harmony of the ingredients is all-important, and whatever tends to a discordant intermixture must have an injurious tendency."

[“The Examination Number VIII,” by Alexander Hamilton, 12 January 1802.]

WOOD and the local stations are reporting 2 Michigan teens(one white,one Mex) went to Knoxville,Tennessee to buy some weed.When they got there,two blacks (including 15 year old Rico Cook)were waiting for them,and blew their brains out in their car.
Cook and the other black turned themselves in.There was a similar incident this year as 2 Grand Rapids whites travelled to the east side of the state to do a drug deal in a retail store's parking lot.They were wasted by 2 blacks and a white girl.
Lots of lessons here that no one will learn.
As far as Hamilton the person goes,what's next on Broadway?JFK as a queer?
