I doubt if there exists anyplace on earth whose population were the, "first"
there. They have nearly all been taken over many times in the past by other,
invaders. (Perhaps there are a few very remote tribes that are "original".
but they are very few and very small in population) So it would be
impossible to return anywhere to it's original inhabitants.

Well, if the government would stop stealing my money and giving it away to
anyone who happens to wander across our borders, then we wouldn't need such
a thing......but, alas.......

It's a forced action....As long as the liberals are giving my money away,
the least I can expect is that they give it to my fellow Americans.
