I don’t have to explain to anyone why we need a wall along our U.S. southern border to secure our nation from the dregs of central and South America illegally entering our country. But it might be enlightening to explain the “difference” between those European immigrants who entered this country legally in the preceding centuries from those sneaking across our border today.
My grandfather, on my dad’s side, came to Texas from Hamburg, Germany in the mid-1800s and settled in Kerrville, TX where my father grew up. My Dad was an apprentice to a blacksmith where he learned his trade. He didn’t consider himself a German-American. He was an American, so when. our country entered WW-I with Germany he enlisted in the army and went to France. After he fought in WW-I (where he might have been killing his own relatives) he married my Mom and they lived in North Carolina where I was born and raised.
As I grew into teen years, I was curious about my heritage and I often asked my father to teach me some Germany language. He couldn’t do it. He didn’t know any. His father (my grandfather) would NOT ALLOW German to be spoken in his house. His children had to speak English. And that is one major difference in the immigrants who legally entered the U.S. in the 1800s and early 1900s and those who now illegally cross our southern border.
Those early immigrants were determined to become Americans. They had left the oppression of Europe for the advantages that our country offered and they worked to become a part of our culture. They readily accepted our customs and our flag. They WANTED to be Americans!
The trash who now sneak illegally into the U.S. or use children as pawns to gain access, have no interest in learning English or accepting our culture. They remain Mexican or Spanish and expect us to pay for interpreters when they apply for free housing, free medical care, and free food stamps. If they work at all they send their money back to Mexico, it doesn’t improve our economy. They have no interest in our National Anthem or respecting our Flag. They fly the Mexican flag and celebrate Cinco de Mayo. They live in barrios (ghettos) where they maintain their foreign beliefs and only comingle with their own kind. And, as we have seen, many of them came from a criminal society and they maintain it here in our land often killing innocent American citizens.
Our President is right. Border security is vital. But not only for our safety but to reclaim AMERICAN culture. If we permit political correctness and inclusiveness to let our nation be overrun by foreigners, we will become a country of “separate tribes.” This land will cease to be America. That is not what Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, and George Washington wanted for us. We must reject the socialist liberals who want to make our country a polyglot of. foreign nationalities. America has always welcomed those who wish to accept our culture and embrace our traditions and speak our language. The garbage now coming in over the southern border has no interest in that at all. If we want an America full of Americans, we must stop this invasion and we must stop it NOW. It is as vital and as serious as that.
