When President Trump said he would strive to ‘Make America Great Again’ he wasn’t kidding. Although his statement has been taken out of proportion a number of times, one thing is clear: there is something happening that is changing the face of America on a national level.
People in other countries often fled to America illegally to find a better life, often reaping the full benefit of the United States without having to pay the taxes required. This forced the economy to suffer because thousands of people were sucking the government dry as they used government assistance to survive in America. Well, this turn of events halted in its tracks the moment Trump put his foot down on the Honduran migrants who rushed to the border to seek asylum in the United States.
Prior administrations supported illegal immigration
The Democratic party has continued to show its leniency toward the issue of illegal immigration in America. With less than strict policies to protect the citizens of America, many people who fled their country found America to truly be their new land of opportunity.
The problem was that as they continued to reap the benefits of financial assistance and governmental support for their families while residing in America, many Americans who were born and raised in America were left out in the cold. There are over 43% Americans who seek government assistance for their survival. These are the same people who work to take care of their families and who pay taxes on a yearly basis.
They fight for this country, they work to improve this country, and they raise their children to be constructive citizens who will help to take this country to the next level. When you have immigrants who flee to America, you water down this system with individuals who utilize the benefits of America, but they don’t replace what they take. The money that they make is often sent back to their homeland to support members of their family, and to make matters worse, they may not even pay taxes on the dollars received from their labor while in America.
There’s only one home for Americans
People who flee to America from other countries have the opportunity to go back to their land if things do not go well for them in America. They have a culture, a country, a family, and a history in another land that makes it possible for them to have the option of going home if they should so choose.
Americans do not have such an option. If the economy takes a nosedive, or if there is a government shut-down, Americans will suffer because they will have no other place in which to flee. Americans will go down with the burning ship of the United States, unlike immigrants, because this is often the only home for an American citizen.
Americans can’t leave the United States if things go wrong and they are forced to suffer any consequences that might occur if the government can’t make good on its responsibility to provide the assistance that many Americans might need. In essence, we are stuck here. An immigrant can always go back home.
It’s important to understand that Americans who support the Trump administration on the issue of immigration are merely protecting themselves and the future of their children. It’s not about equal rights for all…instead, it’s about economics. The far-left continues to throw propaganda into the media to take everyone’s attention off this fact.
Don’t be fooled. A major part of making America great is to first ensure that the Americans who live here are first in line when it comes to anything that the government has to offer to ensure a prosperous future in this land of opportunity. It’s time to take a stand and embrace all the greatness that America has to offer without fear that it might be jeopardized or stolen.
