WEDNESDAY VENT

 

Our country is faced with an army of refugees seeking asylum in the United States.  More than ten thousand people will soon cross the border and some with hopes of escaping dangerous, treacherous, situations which they no longer can live with.

Our borders have been open to those who go through the proper channels for centuries.  Still we’re expected to accept every one of these immigrants into our country without them being vetted.  I have many friends who are now citizens of America after going through a difficult and expensive process.  It simply isn’t fair to those who did take the right steps to become legal citizens.

Yes, there are those who can’t afford the cost – those who are trying to start anew in a country that welcomes them – those who would rather take the easy way and force their way in.  Still if they do it the right way, they will have the opportunity to live within our borders

We’ve always been a nation of compassion.  We support countries like Guatemala, Honduras, other Central American countries and Mexico with our tax dollars.  Those coming here are undocumented. We know nothing about them, nor do we know how they will contribute as future citizens of our country.

We’re often seen as a nation of compassion, but still we have people living on the streets or out of cars, veterans who have served our nation and thousands receiving some relief from the government.  Should we not be caring for our own first?

We’ve always opened our arms to welcome those from other countries.  Someday we could be in the same boat.  I am deeply concerned that we’re not taking care of our own, yet we open the door to thousands more.  We seem to forget that what they’re attempting to do is illegal.  ILLEGAL!

Compassion is defined as sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others.  Mental illness, PTSD, homelessness, drug use, addiction, are all terms to describe problems that a great portion of our population are dealing with today.  They need our help too.

There must come a point in time when we say enough is enough – not because we aren’t compassionate, but that we’re trying to get our own house in order first.

Thanks, I needed to get that off my chest.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    My wife came here the right way. She was about nine years old, I think the summer before her birthday. She is insulted by all of this argument over the caravan. When she took the test to become a citizen, she had to take it in English, but the legal Mexican emigrants took it in Spanish. Her mother started a battle over that in El Paso, Texas. My worry is that a lot of these people are not from Mexico and Central America. I have heard the largest number crossing the border lately are from India, having been disallowed visas to the US. And of course, I am sure many are criminals in their own country, not just illegal emigrants. The one party wants them to enter, because they’ve already paid them for their vote.

  2. AMEN! I have wondered if they so want to come to America and be Americans why are they still waving flags of the countries they have left? Why are they not waving American flags??? I wonder who is financing all these people to come. They do not look like they have walked thousands of miles as the media tells us. There shoes and clothing look pretty good shape and they do not look like someone who is fleeing. They just look angry.
