    I have no arguments with national flags- Puerto Rico Day, West Indian Day, St. Patrick's Day, and Columbus Day are all great fun in New York.  But those aren't people trying to make an argument that they should be included as Americans- they are asserting their national pride.

    In the cases of those protesting harsh treatment of immigrants - particularly undocumented- it is taken for granted by their opponents that they are proud of their nationality.  If they wanted to strengthen their case they would attempt to show they are at least as proud of their new homeland.
