As an American and the son of immigrants, I favor the building of a wall at our southern border. My parents migrated legally from Europe after World War II, respecting the law, worked hard, and learned the American language. Nothing was printed in their native language for them. No special privileges or benefits were offered to them, but they were glad just to be here.
Some come across our southern border today and receive benefits others didn’t. To allow others to illegally come into our country is a slap across the face of millions just like my parents. The Declaration of Independence tells us all men are created equal (no class of immigrant is any better than any other). Can I get an amen from the equality people?
We have a right to screen who comes into our country. We had strict borders when we didn’t have gang, drug, and other problems. How much more do we need a secure border today? One cannot freely waltz across the Canadian border, so why should it be any different on the southern border?
