You can't have nativism without natives

The media have found a new way to frame the immigration debate that allows them to sidestep all those pesky issues of just who was here first:

MATTHEWS: How can conservatives go back to their basically gerrymandered Republican districts of people, our native Americans, who are upset about too much illegal immigration going on and say, yes, I signed the president‘s bill, he leaned on me a little bit, so I did it? How do you defend that?

Republicans are now "native Americans." That'll show those upstart Hispanics who's really #1 at invading and conquering!
