Immigration is not just an issue of current concern and divisivness, it is and has been as America’s political interests play to populations that gave political advantage to political parties.

That is not what immigration was ever intended to become.

Our nation’s conglomerate peoples may have been encouraged by economic, an opportunity to become free of the political military governments in the rest of the world.

orfor the sake of choseing to make their own way in life and saw America as the place to try it.

Today’s world includes a vast host of challenges to our immigration service. There are legal and illegal people desiring their “own personal opportunities” or “opportunists from criminal and illegal organizations? preying upon American citizens, business, industry, government resources at the expense of this Nations compassion for the unfortunates as well as the most desired of other nation’s best and talented. To be sure all are equally eligible, and for those who want that accomplished now there is immediate political advantage to respond to 11 million illegal people in the United States of America. An issue brought upon us by the very political powers who will propose the way to solve it, created by passing the buck for many years.

This is no longer a game ball for political manipulation. but for the enforcement of the laws, so long by passed. It might be said that not only did the 11 million illegal immigrants gamble with their futures, so did the United States Congresses. only you are accountable for it.
