A group supporting an open-borders policy on immigration is trying to use the nationwide release of Man of Steel to further its cause. We Are the American Way, a project from Define American, has a new site dubbed "Superman Is an Immigrant" meant to piggyback on the cultural conversation around the superhero film.
"Superman is an American. Like Superman, we are the American way," the site's sub-head reads.
Born on Krypton, he came to this country with the promise of Hope - the symbol he bears on his chest. Many of our families also have a history of immigration. We share Supermans hope and we continue his fight for truth, justice and the American Way.
The site features images of pro-amnesty supporters holding hand drawn images of the iconic "S" emblazoned on the character's chest.
Define American founder Jose Antonio Vargas wrote a blog on the subject, signing off with a paraphrase of the character's signature line, "In truth and justice," but leaving out "The American Way.

One self-supporting super man from Krypton that helps promote truth, justice, and the American Way
30 million dependent men women and children from third world nations that promote deception, injustice, and the worst ways of their parent nation
Great analogy... /s
I liked Speedy Gonzales...at least he stayed where he belonged.
Does Kryptonite work on Amnesty Legislation?
Big Difference: Superman has a job, doesn’t need healthcare, and FIGHTS crime.
“I liked Speedy Gonzales...at least he stayed where he belonged.”
And he fought cats.
I can think of a simple few more appropriate correlaries: Subsistence Section 8 Housing " 'splain it to me how I can get WICs, SNAP and TANF" Social Security (where can I get some Amigo?) School (you pay for my cheelren's schooling) You get the picture.
But do they believe in “ Truth, Justice, and The American Way?
He was adopted by John/Jonathan/Eben and Mary/Martha/Sarah Kent. Best I know, they are American citizens. I am sure that he could be naturalized if it were not for the Hague convention and mandatory immunizations.
I would never, ever want to visit the loony fantasy land liberals live in.
Jeez, I don’t even have to say anything except ‘see the tag line’.
“Superman/Kal El” is a US Citizen by Act of Congress (can’t remember the issue).
Clark Kent is technically an illegal alien, due to a fradulent adoption by the Kents.
When Pedro and his hombres leap tall buildings in a single bound and fly through the air at the speed of light, I’d be willing to make an exception.

Ah, yes, the comic book defense!

Until Ted Kennedy (D-Hell) pushed the changes in immigration law to get rid of usfull immigrants in favor of poor communist minded peasants, skilled immigrants had very little problem obtaining work and travel visas. Basically the superman that landed in the 30’s would have little trouble gaining legal status. Todays immigration policies would have him waiting behind a horde of undeducated muslim Somali’s.
When their country blows up, we'll see about letting them in. Meanwhile:
Kal-El could not return to his home planet. Furthermore, he had special skills that would be valuable to the United States. Also, he was not bringing in his entire family.
