My family strived to become Americans through assimilation. Why did they need to work so hard to become citizens?
I served to protect the ideals that my grandparents worked to achieve. We are the only country that allows people to be granted citizenship simply because they are here.
If Americans go to another country to work or live, they can be denied citizenship, fined and even jailed for not following proper procedures.
We have laws that are not enforced and are claimed to be draconian. We do not need new laws. We need to enforce the laws we have.
If illegal immigrants believe America is so great, why don't they follow our laws; why do they send all of their money back home; and why does the president of Mexico encourage their citizens to break the laws of another country?
