Land of Opportunity
It’s well known that the United States is the land of opportunity and many come here searching for the American Dream, as immigrants have done for well over 240+ years. If you’re willing to work hard, do your best success will be your reward, right?
There is no universal “right” to enter this country. Entry is a privilege that should be extended to those who desire to adapt and contribute to our society, without regard to social economic status.
During the last 4 years of the Obama administration the perverted vision of the American Dream has turned into Obama’s Dreamers. Fueled on by Democratic lawmakers like Diane Feinstein, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer those who entered the United States territory continue to be rewarded with free housing, free medical, free food, free education and lots of other freebies that is being paid for entirely by American taxpayers.
When given a heads up by President Trump to take care of the illegal immigrants under the illegal DACA program, those responsible men and women of congress decided to do nothing and the DACA program expired on its own, leaving several hundred thousand illegal’s literally out in the cold.
Rather than applying for legal residency status, quite a number of individuals did not take advantage of the opportunity to remain in this country legally and are now faced with the prospect of being removed through the deportation process.
What some states and cities have attempted is to create safe-havens or sanctuary cities to shield illegal immigrants from federal immigration authorities. Not only are these actions illegal, but the state officials involved may be subject to federal prosecution.
Because this country is a nation of laws under the Constitution of the United States of America designed to protect American citizens and lawfully documented visitors, it is important that these laws be upheld and the lawbreakers be held accountable for their actions.
There are a number of individuals who have gained entry into our country, but have yet to contribute to American society. Those individuals should have their US citizenship revoked and they should be returned to their home country.
It would be interesting to know how many illegal aliens may be criminals from their home countries. Maybe they could be extradited and serve time in the prison system of the land they are accustomed to?
The land of opportunity gives everyone the same opportunity to work hard, raise their family, pay their taxes and exercise their right as an American citizen to vote in our system of elections. Visitors and illegal aliens are not entitled to the freedoms afforded to American citizens, until they have gone thru the process to become US citizens.
It is not a Democratic or a Republican thing but an American way of life, available to all who successfully go thru the immigration process. We welcome you! – I am the Real Truckmaster!
