5 "Positive Immigration"
Become a legal immigrant
There are a number of people that say we should allow illegal immigrants to come into America because the foundation of this country was formed by immigrants. The difference is that the immigrants that formed this country were people that came over here and lived through the hardships that faced them.
They didn’t come over here expecting handouts and to have babies in nice clean hospitals and expect to have someone else pay the bill. Or go and ask for welfare and food stamps to feed their kids. Or to stand on the corner or
off ramps of freeways begging for handouts. It’s bad enough that we have American citizens that have to do that. They’re doing that because of their own unfortunate circumstances in life, not because they came here to look for someone to take care of them.
If these immigrants want to come here so bad, there is a legal process to go through and earn the right to be here. There is no reason why they can’t go through that process just like so many before them have done in the past. Whether they’re from Mexico, Viet Nam, South America, Europe, the Middle East or from anywhere else in the world.
The original immigrants that founded this country came here with hopes and dreams and most of them made their dreams come true. No one handed anything to them out of pity or because they felt sorry for them. They worked, and sometimes, had to fight for what they had.
Where would we Americans be today if it had not been for the brave men and women that came across the seas and fought for this country? Then the brave men and women that pushed to free this land to make it the free country it is today? And then there were the courageous men and women that explored and settled the west.
You have to realize these men and women originated from immigrants and were most of our ancestors. They came here and made their own way.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I do realize that there are immigrants that come to this country and they work hard to make their own way and some of them that do make a difference in this country in a positive way that actually earn their keep. Most of these people come here legally and obey the rules and laws. Arnold is an example of an immigrant coming here and making something of him self and making a difference. Maybe not a good example, but a well recognized one.
You see, this is my whole point. If they are going to come to this country, do it legally.
I just don’t feel that our soldiers, husbands, wives, sons and daughters that have given their lives or even the ones that are risking their lives, for this country just to have it here for free-loaders to come in and live here on our tax money. Our Fore-fathers didn’t pass the bills and laws to have people come here and take advantage of our freedoms. All of the above didn’t do what they did to keep this country free just to have someone come from other countries and want to change our way of life and our freedoms just because it doesn’t feel like home to them. Let them go back to where they come from if they can’t conform to our way of living.
