People had hope. People had dreams. They still do. The people in the images are people with hope and dreams, just like the people in our recent pictures. Nothing has really changed.

And Neil Diamond's definitely a plus.

Here, have some nostalgia, and memories of how America used to be great.

People that already live here have hope and dreams too.
America didn't used to be great, it is great. If it wasn't nobody would want to come here.

Those people came to America legally - like through Ellis Island.
Then they worked hard to achieve, learned the language and American ways, and were proud to be American.

Now they try to sneak in, expect to be handed everything, and still hate America.

So yes, things have changed. If only immigrants today were the same as immigrants back then.

America
Neil Diamond







Far
We've been traveling far
Without a home
But not without a star
Free
Only want to be free
We huddle close
Hang on to a dream

On the boats and on the planes
They're coming to America
Never looking back again
They're coming to America

Home, don't it seem so far away
Oh, we're traveling light today
In the eye of the storm
In the eye of the storm

Home, to a new and a shiny place
Make our bed, and we'll say our grace
Freedom's light burning warm
Freedom's light burning warm

Everywhere around the world
They're coming to America
Every time that flag's unfurled
They're coming to America

Got a dream to take them there
They're coming to America

I don't think they see things the way you think they do.

"Living in America, Hand to hand across the Nation"


Man , America was so cool back then.

I don't deny we must be more guarded now, we learned that the hard way. 911. But it's nice to remember how things used to be.

Back when America was truly great.

Freedom ain't free.

It cost a buck o'five.



What would you do
If you were asked to give up your dreams for freedom?
What would you do
If asked to make the ultimate sacrifice?
Would you think about all them people
Who gave up everything they had?
Would you think about all them War Vets
And would you start to feel bad?
Freedom isn't free
It costs folks like you and me
And if we don't all chip in
We'll never pay that bill
Freedom isn't free
No, there's a hefty in' fee.
And if you don't throw in your buck 'o five
Who will?
What would you do
If someone told you to fight for freedom
Would you answer the call
Or run away like a little pussy
'Cause the only reason that you're here
Is 'cause folks died for you in the past
So maybe now it's your turn
To die kicking some ass
Freedom isn't free
It costs folks like you and me
And if we don't all chip in
We'll never pay that bill
Freedom isn't free
Now there's a hefty in' fee
And if you don't throw in your buck 'o five
Who will?
You don't throw in your buck 'o five. Who will?
Oooh buck 'o five
Freedom costs a buck 'o five

Boy, the way Glen Miller played.
Songs that made the Hit Parade.
Guys like us, we had it made.
Those were the days
Didn't need no welfare state.
Everybody pulled his weight
Gee, our old LaSalle ran great.
Those were the days
And you knew where you were then
Girls were girls and men were men.
Mister, we could use a man like Herbert Hoover again.
People seemed to be content.
Fifty dollars paid the rent.
Freaks were in a circus tent.
Those were the days
Take a little Sunday spin,
Go to watch the Dodgers win.
Have yourself a dandy day
That cost you under a fin.
Hair was short and skirts were long.
Kate Smith really sold a song.
I don't know just what went wrong

Those Were the Days

I know! And just think, we didn't have others threatening to use "deadly force" to keep them out, nor did we invent a legal loophole to kidnap their children and put them in cages.

“We all agree on the need to better secure the borders and to punish employers that choose to hire illegal immigrants,” then-Senator Barack Obama (D-Illinois) declared back on Dec. 15, 2005. Obama also repeatedly referred to those who sneak into the country as “illegal” – a term now shunned and condemned by today’s liberal media and politicians – during his Senate speech decrying their “disrespect” and “disregard” for the rule of law
...
“We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States, undetected, undocumented, unchecked and circumventing the line of people who are waiting patiently, diligently, lawfully to become immigrants in this country.”


Senator Obama Called Undocumented Migrants ‘Illegal Immigrants,’ ‘Illegals’ Disrespectful of U.S. Law

Democrats' illegal immigration tune has changed over years despite incoming caravan


“The American people are fundamentally pro-legal immigration and anti-illegal immigration,” Schumer said during a talk at Georgetown University. “We will only pass comprehensive reform when we recognize this fundamental concept,” he added, listing seven principles of any immigration reform.

“First, illegal immigration is wrong,” Schumer stated, “and a primary goal of comprehensive immigration reform must be to dramatically curtail future illegal immigration.”



During a 2008 press conference, Pelosi addressed the “challenge” of illegal immigrants and said “we certainly do not want any more coming in.”

“Do we have a commitment to secure the border? Yes. What are the options that we have available to us, let's make sure they work,” Pelosi said.

“Because we do need to address the issue of immigration and the challenge we have of undocumented people in our country. We certainly do not want any more coming in.”

We live in different times with different threats and different issues.

We have to realize immigration issues are a whole lot different than they were when people were coming here back in "the good ole days".
