A country without borders is not a country

Immigration?

I, am, so sick and tired of the Democrats, Liberals, Progressives, media and some swamp Republicans representing (undocumented) immigrants that snuck into this country illegally. We have immigration laws that are on the books, and for too many years, have not been enforced. Now is the time to stop this nonsense. A country without borders is not a country. Just look at what has happened in Europe. Over the years, even the Democrats have voted for border security, whether it be a wall or a fence.

But, now, because of an executive order signed by President Trump reversing the executive order signed by President Obama over DACA, there has been a government shutdown for a couple of days and mass hysteria from these same people. President Trump has proposed a solution to all of this as far as immigration goes. He is willing to let 1.8 million DACA recipients to seek citizenship over 10-12 years if we build a wall, add more border security, end chain migration, (and not chained migration as Kirsten Gillabrandt suggested to make it racial) and end the lottery system. Anybody with half a brain would realize this would help to stabalize our immigration system. If not doing this, we would be in the same situation a few years from now with DACA people.

The Democrats, Liberals, Progressives and media all argue that our country was built by immigrants. Yes, this is true, but they all came here legally. They came here through Ellis Island, were screened, then allowed to stay. They had to learn our language and assimilate to our culture. They helped build this country and their children and grand and great-grandchildren are now the citizens of this country.

How is it now that the immigrants that have come here legally, paid thousands of dollars and have to take a test not at all upset. They and the taxpayers of this country are paying for illegals housing, food, health care and some of their legal fees. Think about it? I won’t even get into the illegal drugs, gangs and other things they bring to this great country of “ours.”

God bless America.

God bless President Trump and his administration.

God bless all of you.
