“Just looking at faces, I could tell there were some folks who are here not because they were born here.” – President Obama in California pushing amnesty
So, Democrats are racially profiling immigrants now? What happened to judging people on the basis of character and not skin color? America is historically known as a melting pot — a country that embraced people from all walks of life with open arms. For instance, my parents are immigrants. How can one tell? They have accents, unique worldviews, and powerful stories from behind the Iron Curtain. (My sister and I are extremely blessed to call them our parents.) Do these qualities make my parents any less American? No! Are they supposed to look a certain way? No! My parents assimilated into this country and embrace the American way of life.
Immigrants have greatly contributed to this country. Whether they hail from Europe, Asia, South America, or Africa, immigrants come to the United States to escape tyranny, enjoy freedom, pursue opportunities, and fulfill their dreams. Instead of using immigrants as pawns to advance big government policies, cherish them and see them for their individual worth.
