Damn it all! "Push" people into citizenship?
No one had to push my immigrant ancestors into anything! They came here willingly, legally, and through great danger - once here, they helped build this Great Nation! I am in awe of my antecedents - the withering persecution they endured both in their Homeland and after they arrived here testify to their fighting character. They and those they engendered have more than paid their dues, in war and peace.

My great grandfather on my mother’s side fled the famine in Ireland, came to America, joined the Army,fought at Manasses,
Got wounded, Got patched up, fought is a couple more battles, got wounded again, was mustered out, went home to Boston, Joined the National Guard, Fought the Great Boston Fire, became a Citizen, and died at a ripe old age from too much whiskey.
My father’s side were Injuns, so they had their own ideas about illegal immigrants! LOL!
