For many, many years now people have been coming to the USA to gain freedom and start a life. There have been laws set in place stating how to go about becoming a member of this society. Yet people choose not to follow them. Yes there are many people that go threw the ropes and follows the rules and earn their way into America and still there are many that feel they should get to do it how ever they want. Hey forget the rules right? I mean who are we to tell them what they can and can’t do in our country. Key word there is OUR country. Yes we have no problem welcoming immigrants into our country if they do it the right way. We shouldn’t have to just lie down and let them do what ever it is that they want to to. This isn’t their country until they earn their keep. But for some reason we are letting them get away with doing what ever they please. There shouldn’t even be a fight going on about giving the ILLEGAL immigrants money and American rights. I mean lets be honest, they didn’t even have to decency or respect for our country in the first place to get here by the rules. They just disrespected and broke our rules and now think we should give them money, benefits and rights. This isn’t right. Ya! OK! Lets reward them for breaking our laws and punish our own, who where born here, that do the same. Something is wrong here with this whole picture. I don’t know about you but I don’t want to reward something bad that has been done. Maybe that is just me but I highly doubt that it is. If the government is going to give all the illegal immigrants all of these things then they should make sure that THEIR people, of THEIR country, that were born and raised here, have everything that they need. I don’t see why I should have to give up my ability to have social security that I have paid for when I am older so that some one who is here ILLEGALLY gets to have my benefits that they didn’t pay for.
I am a 22 years old woman who was born and raised here in America. The land of the free and the home of the brave. But I can see now that even though we are free we are not very brave. If we were brave we would be sending every last one of the illegal immigrants back to their home lands. If they wanted to come back they should have to do it the right way. Not going to happen though because we a not brave enough to make it happen. I mean who is going to clean our houses and tend to our farms for so little money? Who is going to do all the little tasks they we don’t want to do for ourselves? Heaven forbid we do them ourselves or hire some one who is here legally because they may charge a little bit more. If we did send them home it wouldn’t be so hard for them to come back on a work permit. They would be legal then. I think that if we made them do that they would if they really wanted to be an American citizen. I think that they should have to learn English if they want to be part of our country because that is the language that we speak. We shouldn’t have to change ours for people coming to our country. That doesn’t seem right. If you want to live in America then learn our language. All immigrants should have to learn to write and speak our language. They should have to follow all the same rules as we do in order to live here. I don’t think we should have to change who we are and how we do things because they want to come here. Just as I would think that if we wanted to move to their countries we would have to do the same. Why do we even have laws if anyone can break them?
I am not a racist, far from it. I think that everyone should have a chance to be an American but only if they do it the right way, not cheat the government. I think that if you so desperately want to be part of something then you should become part of it fully and not half way. What are we telling our children? That it is OK to do things half hearted and not finish what you started. It is OK to not follow the rules and laws that we live by because you can just get away with them later. If we let the immigrants do it then hey, why not our kids. Why don’t we just say screw it all and that in America laws mean nothing unless you were born here. Come one, come all and we don’t care if you care about our laws, do as you please, we will let you. We are setting our country up for failure if we cant even enforce our laws. They came here knowing they were breaking the laws and that they could very well be deported back home. DO IT THEN! Thats what you said you were going to do in the first place and your are our government. If you aren’t going to do it then you damn well better cut the people who are here LEGALLY some slack once in a while or your going to have to deal with hell in the future. This is our country you know and we are not going to just sit here and not have our thoughts taken into consideration. Our ancestors built this country and we work hard every day to make sure it stays the place that it is. With out us legal Americans paying taxes you wouldn’t have a paycheck. With out us you wouldn’t have your military. Without us you wouldn’t have a country to run. Do your jobs and let people know that America is not a push over country and that we do stand by our words. Show the world that we are in charge of our country and that we do follow and live by our rules they we set. Show the world that we are united and that we wont get walked on. Go ahead. Be Brave.
