First off, I'm not white. I just want to make this clear so everyone doesn’t start accusing me of being a white supremacist.
How many people believe we should change some of our immigration laws?
The only reason why I ask this is because I personally think the laws today which makes it virtually easy to become a U.S. citizen is taking a
negative toll on us.
I’m not singling out any specific group of people. I don’t care if you’re Asian, Black, White, Yellow, Filipino, Japanese, Hispanic, European,
Muslim, Catholic, Christian, Gay, or Bi-sexual. I think we should stop naturalizing people all together so we can focus on our own people.
Don’t get me wrong. If I was poor or looking for a big opportunity to support my family, I would do almost anything to become a U.S. citizen.
However, I just think we Americans should focus on taking care of ourselves and our future children of America.
Some people will come here just to have their baby born and automatically become a U.S. citizen. Grandparents or parents petitioned to live in the
U.S. will claim social security benefits without working a single day in their life in the U.S. Many people, once naturalized, will use our own taxes
(used heavily to subsidized education costs) to help them achieve a formal education then return back to their home countries, thus only taking and
not contributing back to our society.
I remember having this discussion with a friend and she actually made a pretty interesting analogy.
Usually, but not always, American born citizens usually don’t take the last desert on the table but would rather let someone else who is still hungry
take it. Naturalized immigrants just keep taking until there is nothing left to take, even if they don’t need it.
Once again, I’m not singling out any specific group and I can go on forever as to why we should limit or even stop naturalizing immigrants to become
U.S. citizens. I just feel we should re-focus our efforts on ourselves. That’s my 2 cents……
