No, we and out ancestors were legal immigrants.

Really? You needed a visa before you came over? Not so.

Only a moron would compare illegals storming across the border to Irish immigrants being treated like crap after coming through Ellis Island.

Ellis Island opened about 40 years after the incidents reported in the Courant in this thread, and over 50 years after the potato famine.

In the 19th Century, immigrants were wanted by the government, period, end of subject -- until they had second thoughts about Chinese and Asians. It was nativists who didn't want Irish, Italians, etc etc. The notion of illegals is a 20th Century thing, and has nothing to do with that period.

What does have relevance is the old tradition of "my people came here earlier than you, so you are unworthy to be equal to us."

With thousands upon thousand of kids storming freely across our border now and soon to be in out budget, the leader you support sounds like the biggest idiot ever,

Oh, there are way bigger idiots. Mostly calling themselves Republicans, an gross reinterpretation of the word. Fortunately, thanks to the leader you love and revere, our intelligent and caring President has the authority to make sure the children are taken care of, rather than vanish into the modern slave system.

Amazing that Bush and Obama agree on something. Probably Biden does to. Pretty sure Cheney and the neo-cons don't.
