Give me your tired, your poor, your terrorists yearning to blow us up-Rush Limbaugh (It's 'who we are')

Comment: "Who we are:" 

We became "who we are" because from 1892 until 1954 no one seeking immigration status in the US made it here without landing first and being approved at Ellis Island

40% of all US citizens can trace at least one of their ancestors to Ellis Island.

"Ellis Island opened in 1892 as a federal immigration station, a purpose it served for more than 60 years (it closed in 1954). Millions of newly arrived immigrants passed through the station during that time–in fact, it has been estimated that close to 40 percent of all current U.S. citizens can trace at least one of their ancestors to Ellis Island."...

"Who we are" today: 

US "immigration" today is anything US politicians say it is, including inviting Muslims to move here from other countries knowing many of them think we deserve to be blown up:

Per 2011 Pew Poll, the US political class is fine that 600,000 Muslims living in the US think it's acceptable to blow up Americans in at least some cases.

A 2011 Pew Poll surveys US Muslim attitudes and finds up to 19% (between 12% and 19%) of US Muslims think suicide bombing is justified.
Pew's most conservative estimates says there are 3 million US Muslims as of 2014 (p. 2). This means approximately 600,000 US Muslims believe suicide bombing is justified at least in some cases (19% of 3 million). In August 2011, Pew says it's great news that only 600,000 Muslims living in the US want to blow us up: "Overwhelming Majority Say Suicide Bombing Never Justified."

Pew says no big deal, support for suicide bombing shows "no signs of growth" from previous years. 600,000 US residents who want to blow us up (up to 19%) is perfectly fine, isn't an "overwhelming majority." Pew's subhead states, "Support for Extremism Remains Negligible."  

80,000 to 90,000 new Muslim immigrants move to the US each year but that number will increase. By 2020, 109,000 new Muslims will move to the US yearly. Most of them will be from Pakistan and Bangladesh.
