Hamilton on immigration

As discussed at American Greatness, despite the liberal shaming that the cast of Hamilton the musical try to sell, here’ s a small sample of Alexander Hamilton’s actual views on immigration:

“foreigners will generally be apt to bring with them attachments to the persons they have left behind; to the country of their nativity, and to its particular customs and manners.”

“it is unlikely that they will bring with them that temperate love of liberty, so essential to real republicanism.”

True 200 years ago; true still.
