I would like you to know that Americans do not mind immigrants who seek citizenship and have cultures and ideologies to add to our great nation.
What we do not need are immigrants who come here for a handout. Our nation is broke, no, more than broke, we are trillions of dollars in debt. Our
government is riddled with politicians who capitalize on citizens being dependent on the system by offering them hopes of government monies in return
for their allegiance to their political party and their vote on election day.
This is only a small fraction of our country's woes. The larger issue is our own naturally born citizens that feel entitled to a lifestyle that other
and current generations have worked their whole lives for. Immigration issues in America have been exploited by the media and spun to create division
within political bases.
I am curious as to your feelings and understanding of America's immigration stance. What is being said overseas?
I welcome anyone who is willing to work hard and contribute to our society. I encourage that once you get rooted, live by your morals and do not
betray them for money, nor should you pity those who tell you they are being oppressed. Sure, there are incidents of our society failing its citizens,
racism, and glass ceilings for the lower and middle classes. However, for those who seek education, work hard, and contribute, you absolutely can
breakthrough. Also, get involved in your state and local governments. Do not just stop at citizenship. True citizens act and seek betterment.
Good luck to you and your family. Get involved and embrace your new community. Help us by sharing your insights and knowledge, and above all, pursue
happiness and encourage others to do the same.
