My how the circle has turned, in less than 20 years, the parties have changed sides on this very issue.
It goes back and forth, and ultimately people blame the other side for the problems, accusing them of something that is not true, and failing to see
the truth of the matter. We live in a house of cards, made out of lies, and then they come down, and it always does, people get really upset and
ticked off, though is it cause they are ashamed that they supported the problem and issue, or due to the fact that it makes them look bad, and no one
wants to own the problem, it is not my fault, or not in my back yard.
There are many issues and lies around this problem, immigration, and the biggest one is that it is all the Democrats problem. The left this and the
left that. Fact and truth be told, not too long ago, maybe about 40, the Republicans were very keen on immigration issues, they were wanting to solve
the problem even help Mexico out of its problems, cause they saw that ignoring it and doing business as usual, was not the answer. And predictably,
the Democrats screamed that they Republicans were offering amnesty to the immigrants who have broken the law.
And the debate goes on and on. The saddest part of this all, is in the arguments, the bickering, the accusations, many have forgotten the one main
thing and that is these are people seeking a dream and life, better than what they have. The US was built on an idea, that we would welcome all, that
we would care when no one else would. We would be there to help out and fight against injustice and bring prosperity. Nobel sentiments of all, even
the Statue of Liberty, the motto was looked on with pride:
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
MOTHER OF EXILES. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
And what is even more so, is that when common sense is present, it is ignored and often discarded. They are taking our jobs, yet here is what we
should be asking instead: Why is an undocumented worker, who probably speaks one language, has no formal education, why is that person far more
desirable to get a job, than some who is a citizen and has an education? What jobs are they going into, that the US citizens decide that they will
not do or does not want to do?
If we look into history, this kind of reminds me of the Chinese laborers who came to this country. They build the railroads at a far less pay rate,
were barred from working different jobs, yet managed to scrape, fight and become successful in jobs that no one else wanted, and were far more
successful than anyone expected them to be.
