Theodore Roosevelt's Ideas On Immigrants

What Theodore Roosevelt said about being an AMERICAN and what it means back 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 person's becoming in every facet 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... 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
