Theodore Roosevelt on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907.
"In the first place we should
insist that if 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 man's becoming in very
fact an American, and nothing but an American...
There can be no divided allegiance here.
Any man who says he is an American, but something
else also, isn't an American at all. We have room
for but one flag, the American flag, and this
excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars
against liberty and civilization, just as much as it
excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we
are hostile... We have room for but one language
here, and that is the English language... and we have
room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty
to the American people."
Theodore Roosevelt 1907
