After watching the demonstration at the Capitol, I felt that the words of Theodore Roosevelt on immigrants in 1907 to be as true today as then:

"In the first place, we should insist that the immigrant who comes here in good faith, becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every fact an American and nothing but an American . . . There can be no divided allegiance here . . . We have room for but one flag, the American flag."
