    Better Trump's America than being oppressed/sold into slavery by the head choppers.

    I take the term migrant as a person trying to get in for betterment. Refugees are (if genuine) those we should help. Asylum seekers is a misused category by migrants and illegals. IMO.

    Well there is a political bias to the term that we choose to use.

    When discussing migrants from Libya for example, those on the left will be inclined to use the term refugee more while those on the right will be inclined more towards migrant. This is driven by both factual needs and emotional power.

    Where were the authorities when Mr Trump's mother came to the USA? Were they treated in the same way, and if not, then why?

    Was Trump's mum an illegal immigrant?

    Did President Trumps Mother condemn the Country that accepted her as an immigrant?

    Nope. She emigrated to the United States in 1930, having been issued with an immigration visa, and became a naturalized citizen in 1942.

    Thanks for that. So this makes Josie Whitehead's question redundant since Trump's mum had every right to be in the USA.

    Maybe they were penned up on Ellis Island to be processed.

    Take them off the boat and string them up from trees instead of thanksgiving. But the native Americans didn't know about Englishmen.

    Oh did no other folks colonize North America? Just those nasty English.
