“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” — Emma Lazarus “The New Colossus”

What does it all mean? Should we allow third-   world peoples into a country they can never understand or love?

I would have to say no.

We have so many issues today with immigrants coming to the United States, legally or illegally, that our heads are spinning. Things like lack of employment and a financial crisis are far too difficult to bare when we are allowing hundreds of thousands of new immigrants in our country every year. Along with that comes the difficulty of securing a border that yields a million illegal immigrants a year, and those are just the ones we know about.

One of the very problems facing this crisis is the fact many third-world peoples do not fully understand our freedoms or laws in this great nation. Many come here and commit crimes claiming they do not understand our laws, and they get away with it. In California alone it costs an estimated $10.5 billion a year for illegal immigrants. This cost includes capture, shipping them back, welfare fraud, housing fraud and crime, just to name a few. In a state already beyond bankrupt, this certainly does not help the situation.

Many people argue that all people from any country should be allowed into the U.S. That is an ill-conceived argument.

Let’s take a look at European immigration. In Europe, there are a high amount of Islamic immigrants. Many of them making demands that Sharia — the code of law derived from the Koran be put in place to accommodate them.

What does that mean for European countries? More importantly, what does that mean for America when there are enough Islamic peoples here asking for Sharia to be enacted? It means a Christian country will be transformed forever.

When the U.S. Constitution was written and our declaration in place, there was no reason for it to read, “We the white people.” The reason is that our founders never intended or even thought about a person of color being a citizen of our nation. If you look at many of the original state constitutions, a requirement to become a voting citizen was in fact being a white male. Why would that be a requirement if we were in fact meant to accommodate third-world individuals?

A huge problem with immigration is that we have politicians who like to interpret the Constitution as they see fit anything for a vote it seems. Politicians are supposed to be the law makers that work for the people. Instead they have become power hungry tyrants who will do anything short of sodomy to stay in office.
