What’s the Difference?

President Obama’s executive order concerning immigration is being threatened with every ridiculous threat that the party of NO can conjure up. Check your history: Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and every Republican and Democrat for the past half century has used their power of executive order to right the wrongs of this country’s immigration laws.

President George H. W. Bush, through the Family Fairness Program, covered about 1.5 million spouses and children. This represented forty percent of the undocumented immigrants in our country at that time. Why was it so wonderful when President Bush did it and so wrong when President Obama does it?

Well, let’s see…oh yes, he wasn’t born in one of the forty-eight and he is not white. You see how shallow you NO people are.

The bottom line is, if you are not a full-bloodied American Indian, you have no right to say who can or cannot make their home in the United States. Our bloodlines all started someplace else.

We were all foreigners whose families wanted a better life for their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. They packed a few belongings and, with faith in their God, and faith in a new country, they boarded a ship in Germany, France, Austria or some other country and made the arduous trip to America. Some who came after 1886, on first seeing the lovely Lady Liberty, so regal and welcoming, dropped to their knees and wept.

Let us open our hearts to those who want to be a part of our great and benevolent country. Let us welcome our new brothers and sisters, as our antecedents wished to be, to the melting pot of our shared homeland.
