It's particularly aggravating to me when politicians from Texas bash immigrants, because the state culture owes so much to the contributions of much-vilified immigrants. Going right back to the early days of Texas when central Texas was built up largely by German immigrants who were despised and vilified by what was basically the Tea Party of the time to now, when Mexican immigrants add so much culturally and economically and are shit on by our conservatives.
Needless to say, the reason that the creators of Superman made him an undocumented immigrant who struggles to find his place in the American dream is that they themselves were the children of immigrants, and that was in fact their families' dreams.
