You are correct that this is a poor formulation of the issue and the 
framework. The political framework of America should be called the "American Union," 
which brings center stage the historic North/South division and the SouthWest. 

The downtrodden immigrant has to be viewed from the formation of America in 
as much as this is in fact a country of immigrants, lets say in the North from 
1790 to the Reagan Revolution. 

To imply and state - as I did, that "everyone" is "anything" is wrong.
