It would only be dishonest if potential immigrants were required to
warrant that they regarded America as perfect in every way. In fact it
is only necessary for a potential immigrant to think that America is,
on balance, better than the country they are from in order for to
justify the decision to immigrate.

After I have immigrated I should be as free as any other citizen to
engage in free speech or other legal political action in order to make
the place better.
