Americas must realize that self-scrutiny is not treason. Self-examination is not disloyalty.
We seek the truth and let the people know. An informed citizenry is vital for the preservation of our democracy. Truth and knowledge diffused among the people are necessary for the preservation of our Democracy, rights, freedom and liberties. http://themoneygps.com/
Demand the teaching of our immigrant’s history in the schools.
America is our country, the land of immigrants that come in search of economic freedom and liberty to be the best they can be through self-determination; many of us know what is like to be an immigrant and what we went through to gain the acceptance and respect of our community. First generation of immigrants is the ones that paid the price so their sons and daughters can have a better life here in American, no matter where we come from, we suffered discrimination and exploitation. The land of the free to the new immigrants becomes the land of the oppressor and the predator that was determined to destroy the immigrant. The irony of this behavior is that they complete forgot about their pass and what they went through when they come as immigrants and the humiliation they experience by discrimination and exploitation to the point that many immigrants were persecute and killed just for being an immigrant.
Today, we must deal with our present immigration issue, and we must acknowledge that we are the ones that are to be blame for this immigration issue. We are the ones that allowed this to take place, Illegal immigration is the result of our failure to enforce our laws, we turned a blind eyes to this issue by convenience, the illegal immigrants are the source of cheap labor, so we do nothing because we benefit from this cheap labor and the exploitation of these people that come here, like us and the millions of immigrants that come to this country before us.
The truth is that Obama have the opportunity to pass an immigration reform in 2004; he had the support of Democratic control of both houses of the United States Congress; and this issue could be resolve as the first act, by the Obama administration after assuming control in 2004, but he preferred to use this issue as a political tool to get political power in the future as projecting an image that he was working on this issue, he continue using this issue by passing the dream act. Democrats and Republicans use the issue of immigration reform to gain political points at the expenses of human beings that the only thing they want is to have the opportunity to be part of this country, and we did it and our fathers before us.
Fellow Americans 2015 is the time to deal with this issue of immigration reform; this is a matter of human rights and social justice, the exploitation of the illegal immigrants and the incertitude of their families must end. We must remember that ones we were the new immigrants and were exploited oppressed, discriminate and treated like second class citizens; we do not want to do this to the new immigrants nor to the illegal immigrants; we must embrace this new source of human capital and do our best to educate them and teach them our history and our contribution we made to make this country great. We are a Christian nation, we believe in our God given rights to freedom, liberty, self-determination and being our brother’s keeper. This is our land the land of the free build by immigrants.
