I’ve just completed this article for a political on-line “magazine”, and hopefully it will appear soon. The article is currently in the editing stage; however I did want to share it with you. Your comments are always welcome, and I will respond if I feel a need to. As always please be aware that this is a public forum, good taste and common sense should prevail.

A nation of immigrants and laws

By Robert Amoroso (Amo)

 

It seems that within the last few weeks the liberal media has once again skillfully managed to blur the issue of immigration, and as usual a serious dialog as turned into an ugly left vs. right issue. As the son of immigrants I understand all to well the desire of people to escape the perils of their homeland and seek a better life for themselves and their families.

 

This great and noble country was founded by immigrants, disillusioned and displaced in their own homeland they uprooted their lives and crossed perilous seas and fought insurmountable odds and through sheer strength of character and perseverance carved a nation out of a wilderness, free of tyrants, dictators and kings.

 

A nation founded on the principles of human and civil rights, and in so doing we once again met the challenge of slavery and shed blood as a nation divided, so that those principles would indoor and indeed they have, We’re a nation unique in our heritage and in our history and no other nation can equal us in terms of our diversity, and its because of those principles we’ve derived our laws and the standards that every civilized government must uphold.

 

The issue before us today is not immigration, but how we govern as a nation. Do we uphold the law of the land, or do we continue on this shameful course we’re on? Do we finally begin protecting our boarders and our “citizens” against the potential threat of another terrorist attack and  the drugs that pollute our society or do we give way to continued illegalities?

 

What good does it do to protect the skies when our boarders are not secure? What good does it do to for an American President to stand in the ruble of what was once “The World Trade Center” and proclaim our resolve, when undocumented and illegal aliens infiltrate our streets, what good does it do when “public servants” who’ve taken the oath of allegiance encourage and endorse illegal aliens to disrespect our laws, that they themselves have sworn to uphold?

 

I watch in amazement as respected journalists and newsman blur the facts to suite their agenda, as they masterfully change their verbiage within their newscasts and in their headlines too exclude any reference to illegalities within their coverage, I’m appalled at hearing our National Anthem being denigrated and rewritten, and sung in another language, and I ask myself “how dare they”!

 

If truth be told, greed and an unwillingness to enforce our immigration laws has brought us to this perilous crossroads, both the United States of America and Mexico are at the root cause of this crises and both must share in the responsibility of protecting the well being of its citizens.   

 

We are, (as our forefathers before us) faced with another challenge and the question once again before us is do we protect the populace and finally enforce the law of the land or do we give in to the mob? Obviously we cannot and should not expel immigrants that are already here, however they’ve willfully broken the law and there should be consequences for that, and it’s certainly not amnesty. However I suspect that after emotions have settled that a guest worker visa (provided that no other laws have been broken), would be a reasonable starting point.

 

However our boarders must to be secured first before any settlements are to be achieved and Mexico must be accountable for its lack of willingness in securing its side of the boarder.

 


The demonstrations this week I suspect galvanized both camps, and while the organizers sought to highlight the impact of Illegal immigrants on our economy, they conveniently sought to eliminate the true economic impact on our infrastructure in terms of social services and crime, in states that directly boarder Mexico, the impact on those states has been devastating.

 



Robert Amoroso is a published author, with his first novel entitled Journey currently in the marketplace, and his second novel entitled Possession in production.

"A nation of immigrants and laws" is the first article that I have read that presents the subject ~ and gives the reader enough air to breathe and think on ~ without any partiality, but within the frame of the concerned laws, and most of all, under the lighT of JUSTICE.

I congratulate You, Author-Poet Robert Amoroso, and thank You for standing under the FLAG OF JUSTICE.

In gratitude and patriotic admiration.

I applaud your stance on the impact of illegal immigration on our society. What is it about ILLEGAL that so many of our non-thinking citizens don't understand? Condoning any part of this behavior on either side of the border can only lead to more and more anguish and disorder in our land. We must regain control of our border and of our senses --- NOW!
