System in United States is not set up to facilitate immigration

2012-07-06T00:00:00Z System in United States is not set up to facilitate immigration

Greg Serbon has a lot of nerves to judge people who want nothing more than to have their families grow up in our great country. At some point his ancestors were immigrants, and once they came to this country they probably brought their family members here illegally.

There are ways to get into the United States legally, but our system is not set up to help these people. Immigrants, legal or not, are what this country is made of.

There is no doubt in my mind that if these illegal immigrants had white skin, blond hair and blue eyes, there would be no problem with them staying.

I look at it as this is God's world and he made us all equal. Every man has the right to give his family the best chance to make it in this world. If that best chance is found over the border into the United States, then I wish you all the best and hope every one of you will realize your dreams.
