Installed latest version of forum software, had a large number of incompatibilities with older version, unfortunately needs to be a clean reboot.  I did attempt to import users from last iteration.  There seems to be a login bug where you have to click the login link and go to the login page to get in. Not sure why yet.

"Foreign-born individuals exhibit remarkably low levels of involvement in crime across their life course." (Bianca Bersani, University of Massachusetts, 2014. Published in Justice Quarterly.)

The immigrants come to America for a better life, and very few of the immigrants are criminals.

No wall!

Alexis de Tocqueville said that one of the great things about America is that people could start fresh in America. No matter your social standing in Europe, you could rise to the top in America. And even former prison convicts found success in the New World. You could clean yourself up, and study, and wear nice clothes, and work hard, and rise in social standing. Just because you start out poor, does not mean that you have to stay poor in America.

Disney is working on a new movie about a Mexican who came to California to pick tomatoes, and now he is one of the top brain surgeons in the world. He was poor, and now he is wealthy and respected.
