Yawn! A "country of immigrants" is not the point. "Controlled immigration" is.
The open-border types love the "nation of immigrants" platitude, though the USA is more accurately described as a nation of settlers, fortified by several assimilated waves
Waves, of course, have a beginning and an end, unlike today's model of open-ended extended family chain migration and winked-at illegal migration. So now's there's no wave, just an endless torrent, which helps make assilation passe because there's no lull in migration, and the numbers are great enough to basically set up colonized areas (additionally multiculturalism holds that assimilation is akin to racism).
