BYUalum says:"I do not want families to be separated. However, I
do not want tens of thousands of illegals streaming over our borders without
some type of vetting and then expecting the United States citizens to fund them,
feed them, and pay their medical bills."There is that christian
love I hear so much about. As Jesus said 'If someone comes to your land
fleeing poverty or war dont let them stay. Make their lives miserable as you can
so they leave and you will be blessed' (paraphrased or completly made up).
Read the bible.
Prayers offered? Why? Does 'god' not know about the situation? Or is
god waiting for us to beg? Prayer is just talking to yourself and
then patting yourself on the back for 'helping'.
The hard work and contributions of immigrants and refugees to America really
needs to be sung again. At one time people were saying the same things about my
Irish ancestors - don't hire them, don't feed them, don't help
them. The person calling everyone to prayer, Mr. Jose Bonilla, came to America,
worked very hard, still does. He is now working for AZ Produce and MOSAIC
Inter-Faith Ministries (Associate Director for Volunteer and Community
Relations). He is now a US citizen but at one time wasn't - fleeing civil
war in El Salvador that the US helped fund to gain military bases. His is just
one example of many New Americans that work very hard in America building our
country with the same hard work ethic that Euro-Americans once had. It is time
to recognize hard-working New Americans who are in the vast majority of those
coming to America. This is the very heart beat of our essence as Americans.
The Spirit of the poem on our Statue of Liberty by Emma Lazarus: Give me your
tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched
refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I
lift my lamp beside the golden door!
I do not want families to be separated. However, I do not want tens of thousands
of illegals streaming over our borders without some type of vetting and then
expecting the United States citizens to fund them, feed them, and pay their
medical bills. We need to build a secure wall on our Southern border
