20. No I'm more upset over the injustice that has been perpetrated on Asians in this country
From the days of the Chinese railroad workers. The quotas were only remedied in 1965.

Which other race has been so discriminated against in terms of access to immigration with such laws as the Asian exclusion and Chinese exclusion acts. Which populace of American Citizens has been interned in concentration camps?

But even with unfair policies, I support a country's right to systematically decide who they want to allow in to the country. My only contact with a person here illegally was a person of my own race. Yet I know several people who are trying to bring relatives in from the Philippines. It takes decades to do it legally. It is not right that some decide they can do what they want because they are willing to break the law.
