  1. Re: cartoon. Bill, please speak for yourself (and your great grandparents.). Many people waited for
    years (and some died) waiting for opportunity to immigrate legally to this country.

    • Exactly! Yet there was no such wait for white British/Canadians in the late 19th century – as in the case of my grandparents. In fact, as shown in the cartoon, they moved here, bought property, lived here for a few years – and THEN became citizens. The point of the cartoon is that all immigrants should have the same “wait in line” (i.e. no wait at all).
