I am a product of immigration. My grandparents immigrated here from Norway in the early 1900's so I guess you would think I want to stay quiet about immigration right?
Wrong, the country opened the doors to immigrants in the early 1900's to better this country...they gave them the opportunity to homestead in exchange for civilizing parts of the country that were barren. In other words they were invited to come here and even then they had to meet certain critera to be able to come. Most importantly they came legally.
Immigration is a highly debated topic and there are some parts of the US that are not effected a lot by Illegal immigration like we in Arizona are but a most informative video is available here . Even I was amazed at the statistics found on this video.
Now in defense of the illegal immigrants that are here.......................It is our (USA) fault......why? We did not adhere to the laws that were already established and simply looked the other way until it has become............a problem.
