Immigration? Didn’t ALL our descendants come from other countries?
Didn’t our early ancestors come to America, fighting hunger, disease, danger and so many other things, even death?
And for what?
So they could make and have a better life for their families than they did in their home country?
Who are we to judge who has a right to come to America?
All our ancestors came from somewhere else: Europe, Asia, Germany, Russia, Africa, Italy, Greece, Ireland and on and on.
When the first settlers came, do you think the Indians were happy about that? We were plumb evil to each other for a long time. But then as more and more people started to arrive, America started growing and prospering. Yes, I’m sure there were some conflicts among the people, some serious and deadly conflicts along the way. People just don’t like change. But look how far our country has come since then.
But in my opinion, we are so very very wrong to keep people from coming to America to have a better life!
Yes, no doubt there are some very wicked people amongst those that want to come to America; and not just from South America; but from all countries!
But look how many evil Americans we have here, BORN AND BRED. the rapists, murderers, drug dealers, child molesters, or all those that shot children and adults in schools and Churches, and on and on. Our prisons are overflowing with people that have done evil things.
Do we really think we are any better than the people in any other country or society?
Look around, watch the news, read the paper, the internet headlines.
We have a whole lot of really evil people in our own country as well.
There are good and bad people on every continent, in every country, in every city to the smallest little hometown.
But on the other hand, a lot of them are just simple folk wanting a better life for their family; just like each of our ancestors did.
And another thing, I think it is a crying shame that we call our fellow man “illegal aliens”.
Shame on each and every person that does so!
How would you like to be called that, it would hurt your feelings wouldn’t it?
Then stop saying it!!!!!
People are not flying here in ufo’s, they are not little green Martians.
They are people, plain and simple people just like all of us are.
We are all human beings, created by God, and all of us, I repeat, ALL OF US, are very precious to Him.
We all were created in HIS image, we all have a heart, soul, life, feelings, and we all were created to be equal in His eyes.
And WE ALL SHOULD SEE EVERYBODY IN THIS WORLD AS OUR EQUAL! EVERYBODY!!!!!
Instead of looking down our noses at others, avoiding those that are poor, homeless, mentally challenged, fat, thin, smart, dumb, dress differently, speak a different language; are different than you or me, we should treat them the way we want to be treated; the golden rule.
Do you get the point?
Stop judging and start showing kindness and compassion to others, everybody!!!
And remember we ALL had ancestors that immigrated to America for a better life, and all, I repeat ALL, should be allowed to immigrate today as well.
Don’t get me wrong.
Yes, they should do everything in their power to become a model citizen of the United States. And we should treat them as such.
Most come to simply work, and provide for their loved ones here, and to send money to their families back home. Just go into any store on a Thursday or Friday at lunchtime when they have their paychecks from a long week of work. The Hispanic folks are in there cashing their checks and getting money orders to send to their loved ones still living in their homeland.
People scream they have come and taken away Americas jobs. Do you all even realize how many Americans do not, and will not work. You couldn’t get some to go to work in a pie factory and get paid just for tasting pies.
Some folks, actually a whole bunch of American folks would rather sit at home, draw from the government, spend their days watching tv, playing video games, and selling their pills that they get from some of these doctors that hand them out like candy, with a me mentality. I have actually heard a few people, American citizens, actually say. “Why should I work? I’ve got it made just like I am.”
Some folks may not like the Hispanic culture, but they seem to work a whole lot harder and do a lot more of the tough jobs than a lot of Americans, that think they don’t have to work or will not work doing hard labor.
And their culture truly believes in family, with genuine care and concern to provide for their loved ones.
Can all of us Americans say we do that?
Just saying, think on all that.
