ILLEGAL – WHAT DON’T WE UNDERSTAND?

1462755811-immigration

This is not a rant, even though it may appear so.  I have no problem with immigrants coming into our country.  My DNA includes German, French, Irish, English and Swedish.  All of my ancestors came to the United States in search of better living conditions and opportunity.  As we recently celebrated the birthday of our great country, I am reminded how the original colonists were not afraid to fight for the land they were coming to.  The French followed suit and had their own revolution shortly after we did.  When freedom is involved it is worth the fight.

There’s unrest and ugliness in all corners of the world. Children are being sold into sex slavery.  Drug cartels run the Central American countries.  Rape and gruesome executions take place everywhere.  Cities stand in ruin and people are subjected to hunger, starvation and disease because there is no place to live.  It truly is a sad state of affairs.

So what are we to do when we are inundated with thousands of ILLEGAL and UNDOCUMENTED immigrants?  There is a lawful procedure that takes place when people enter our country.  Somehow it seems that the law doesn’t apply anymore.  What about those who paid thousands of dollars and years of waiting to become American citizens? How can it be fair to them when they’ve paid the price which the current immigrants are not doing?

I’m not versed in political science or American law, but I’ve gone through the school of hard knocks and have seen such a decline in respect for both of those areas.  Police and other public servants have become the villains while the bad guys run the streets and are bringing suits against those very protectors.  Laws have been established to protect all of us.  Lately the bad guys have taken advantage of those laws to work to their own advantage.

When immigrants use children that aren’t even blood relatives to achieve their entrance to our country, something sets off a red flag, in my opinion.  The backlash of this leaves those who seriously want to come here for the reasons our ancestors did, are being pushed aside by the drug pushers and sex traffickers.  The fact that there are thousands of people to process slows down the entire action.  Many of them will never see the other side of the border.  Many will be returned to their countries of origin.  Many will die.  Many will get sick.  The list goes on and on.

Whoever is orchestrating these caravans is probably raking in a lot of money.  Some legitimate families are willing to give their last cent to get entrance into America.  The border patrol is working overtime hours, often bringing toys from their own homes for the children, spending part of their salaries to bring needed supplies and facing danger and even death every day they punch the time clock.

There is no clear answer to this situation.  However I still believe that the law means something.  The minute we turn that system upside down, we are opening the door to all kinds of problems.  The demise of a nation usually begins when its infrastructure is broken.

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.

    It’s all about “open borders”. They’re going to keep pouring foreigners in this country because uninformed Americans keep advocating for them… and open borders… until we have “open borders”…..

    The thing in all of this is that the tragedies that flood our headlines of families being separated and even dying…as the image making the rounds last week of the father and child who had drowned, are tragedies that could be easily avoided —
    We have people who are making choices—very dangerous choices, dangerous choices with their children…putting their children in harm’s way.
    They are making a conscious decision to put their lives and that of their children at risk…the odds are not good, the gamble is poor and the prudent choice would be not to risk everything…and yet they do.
    Then if it is indeed that dire—do it correctly. Do it right. Do it legally.
    Look at our streets in places like Portland, Seattle, Chicago, LA…they are filled full of homesless individuals—we can’t take care of who we have let alone hundreds of thousands who are attempting daily to sneak in…
    something has got to give—
    We cannot sustain these types of numbers!

      Only if we could place them in undeveloped places which they’d have to develop as our ancestors did. Homesteading in Alaska comes to mind. I’m getting opposition to this post from some millennials who are convinced that everyone is caged like animals and mistreated. The numbers are overwhelming aren’t they?

      • no one is caged like an animal–do the millenials want to open their homes and rooms to the masses—because that is what it is—you cant just tell these people, go and be free—multiply and prosper.
        They can’t come across the border and expect to be sent out into the unknown and make their way—on what? What money?
        What jobs? What schools systems?
        What housing?
        Waht medical care?
        Who pays for the hundred of thousands who are coming. Where are they to be placed?
        As an educator, I can tell you first hand, the public school systems cannot absorb all of the kids.—They cannot feed them, cloth them, house them, educate them—there are simply too many. We don’t not have the resources. Where is the money to come from?
        Our Gov’t is pushed to the max there are no residual secret funds that can cover all of this—it is a humanitarian crisis that is wishing to overtake our country and our country is not prepared to handle it—that is the facts.

  5. Keep on speaking truth!! You have said it so well. I totally agree with Julie…..let those who want open borders open their homes and their wallets. Those who are giving you flack should have to answer how much they are giving and how full are their homes with illegals?
    My daughter in law is a public school teacher in a small town. Her school is having to build again due to the large amount of illegal children who are receiving their education on the taxes of those who are here legally.
    I am all for compassion but the well will run dry and then no one wins.
