SHOULD ILLEGAL ALIENS CHILDREN STAY IN AMERICA?
This piece is inspired by hearing Dr. Ben Carson the 2016 GOP Republican candidate speech in Arizona where I heard him say in a sound bite and I loosely quote him ” I would send back an illegal mother and her baby (anchor baby) born in America…send them back as a package ” I was like woe. That was direct and harsh. That was cold. But then I thought about it. He is right. The words might seem harsh but he is entirely right about this issue. But in honestly thinking about this issue I believe I have come across a major vein that will cause us to solve this problem that has been plaguing both Mexico and America . I used the term vein not meaning to throw in a pun since I am talking about one of the best surgeons known to man in Dr. Carson. But I believe he has caused me to make a major breakthrough in this issue of illegal immigration ,human freedom, human dignity and human prosperity under God. If the GOP candidates and party can catch on to this theme and principle and communicate this to America we may be able to change the American electorate.
PUT THE NATION ‘S NEED FIRST: STAY STRONG
Without being preachy. Let me interject the words of JESUS into this discussion. We need some Godly wisdom. In Luke 22 JESUS is talking to Peter. As you may know . Peter had a rocky relationship with JESUS. Some very high highs and few low lows. Here JESUS is teaching Peter as we need to learn. Before you can help someone else you first have to help yourself. So how can America help the poor citizens of another nation when we cannot even help our own poor citizens get jobs and with education and health care. JESUS says it like this Luke 22 “Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift each of you like wheat. 32But I have pleaded in prayer for you, Simon, that your faith should not fail. So when you have repented and turned to me again, strengthen your brothers.” If we allow illegal immigration to destroy our economy education, and health care system by over flooding it with non productive weight than how can we help those whom Liberals tell us we must have a heart for. We must have an organized way of doing this that make sense for America first.
ASK NOT WHAT AMERICA CAN DO FOR YOU… BUT WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR AMERICA!
I believe we must put the emphasis on the illegal alien ‘s governments and not on the illegal aliens who just want a better life and not on Americans who just want to protect our way of life and laws. I intend to explain in a logical down to Earth way on why this is common sense and also very moral and human. This conservative Christian had goosebumps listening to the inaugural speech of John F. Kennedy in on January 20, 1961. President Kennedy of course is one of the most famous and beloved Democrats of all time but most certainly of the last 100 years. It fair to say he has little rival in that and many regards. But as I have started to write this piece on the controversial subject of both immigration and “anchor babies” the famous line from President ‘s Kennedy address came to my mind to follow the theme of my thought on this subject. The powerful and inspiring quote from the President is known for it ‘s stern tone and call for responsibility. While also being inspiring. President Kennedy said ” Ask not what your country can do for you but ask what you can do for your country ” My plan in explaining my point on how I felt on the subject of Anchor Babies was going to start with those words to illustrate how I felt in the most poetic and strong words. Only reorganizing some words and points of emphasis here and there to get my point across.
My thoughts on illegal immigration and how it is handled is not a firm one in great detail. But it is very strong in principle. Immigration laws and reform has never been a hot button issue for me or one that I was greatly interested in. But the human cost, the human story,and the human responsibility of the peoples on both sides of the Mexican- American border is of utmost importance to this Christian. But in following suit with President Kennedy’s riveting speech my thought was to those desiring to be American citizens ” Ask not that America can do for you but what you can do for America” . This was a change in my thought process on the issue of illegal immigration.
Before I would look at the issue more balanced. While I strongly desire to keep American ‘s identity , culture, security and borders in tact by following our laws that are on the books by strict enforcement of our border crossings and laws. I also want to allow as many people as possible who are in very tough situations to come to America for a better life for them and their families. So I looked at the issue from the American citizen side and the illegal alien side. This issue or our nation and for illegal aliens was brought to the forefront and boiled over last year when thousands and thousands of illegal immigrants flooded our border towns and border enforcement agencies at one time. The human cost was very large. I felt for all involved deeply. But I also had a deep concern for our nation and what would become of our sovereignty. I knew in my heart that something badly had to be done about this situation.
After listening to Dr. Carson ‘s speech I came up with a solution. Stay tuned I will be releasing it later today. But going back to President Kennedy ‘s quote above . The answer is in his speech. I was amazed when i listened to the words he used.
