Sanabituranima pointed this cartoon out to me. It is just what goes through my head when people start talking about keeping Mexicans from coming into America:


In case you have trouble reading the cartoon, it says this:

1780: Papist immigrants are wrecking our economy with their fecundity! We must erect a wall of brass around the country for the exclusion of Catholics!

1850: Chinese immigrants refuse to assimilate… and if we let too many in, they’ll undermine our economy!

1920: Now, I’ve got nothing against Jews… but the Jews are coming in huge numbers! The economy can’t take it!

Now: I’ve got nothing against Mexicans, but they refuse to assimlate! They’re ruining our economy! We should erect a wall.
