There are words used every day in the political lexicon to hide reality.
Refugee and illegal are two of those words.
Did you know it’s illegal to enter this country, as well as others without a passport? A Visa is required if your stay is longer than 6 months or you want to work in that country. You must check with the country you want to enter to understand and obtain the necessary permits before you enter. Detain and deport are exercised by each country as they desire, not as you wish.
It doesn’t matter the reason, if someone comes into the USA or any country, they need to gain access through immigration.
What we seem to want to do is come up with different exceptions to suit our emotional context.
That’s when a nation of laws becomes a nation of whatever feels good, do it. This was the motto that emerged from the 60’s hippy movement. It’s not a sensible way to live.
I suggest everyone that wants to allow people to enter this country illegally, begin a personal family foster program. Just let them into your home. Why not, they have it much worse than you? While you’re at it take in a homeless person or two.
The critical problems we have get worse because people refuse to act like responsible adults. We want to be considered compassionate, but we forget that sometimes, no, is the correct response.
We don’t know who we let in without proper border screening. They may carry diseases, such as small pox or tuberculosis. In our confusion of emotion over intelligence, we block out any questions of what do we do, how do we properly provide, and what do we do with our homeless and “refugees“? Do we just set up sanctuary cities then sue the federal government for not picking up the tab? I grow weary hearing speeches designed for TV consumers and a short attention span audience.
Build the walls, barriers necessary to block all entry. Screen all those who wish to come in. Fix what’s broke first, before adding to our already overloaded local areas. First consider taking care of our veterans who served, sacrificed, then through the ravages of war, came back home unable to fit back in to a civilian world, and to a people who pretend the government is finding solutions.
There’s no options that have been discussed, other than providing proper border security. I would like our elected officials hold to their oath of office and protect this country from threats foreign and domestic.
Here’s what a person is required to swear in order to gain citizenship in the USA.
The current Oath of Allegiance of the United States is as follows:
I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform non-combatant service in the Armed Forces of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law; and that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God.
According to U.S. regulations, the phrase “so help me God” is optional and that the words ‘on oath’ can be substituted with ‘and solemnly affirm’.
