New Roman" size="4"">Maybe we should turn to our history books
and point out to people like

New Roman" size="4"">Mr. Lujan why today's American is not willing to accept this new kind of

New Roman" size="4"">immigrant any longer. Back in 1900 when there was a rush from all areas

New Roman" size="4"">of Europe to come to the United States , people had to get off a ship and

New Roman" size="4"">stand in a long line in New York and be documented .

Some would even get down on their hands and knees and kiss the

ground. They made a pledge to uphold the laws and support their

new country in good and bad times. They made learning English

a primary rule in their new American households and some

even changed their names to blend in with their new home.

New Roman" size="4"">They had waved goodbye to their birth place
to give their children a

New Roman" size="4"">new life and did everything in their power to help their children assim-

New Roman" size="4"">ilate into one culture. Nothing was handed to them. No free lunches,

New Roman" size="4"">no welfare, no labor laws to protect them. All they had were the skills

New Roman" size="4"">and craftsmanship they had brought with them to trade for a future

New Roman" size="4"">of prosperity.

Most of their children came of age when World

War II broke out. My father fought along side men

whose parents had come straight over from Germany

, Italy , France and Japan . None of these 1st gener-

ation Americans ever gave any thought about what

their parents had come from. They were Americans

fighting Hitler, Mussolini and the Emperor of Japan.

They were defending the United States of America

as one people.

When we liberated France , no one in those villages were

looking for the French American, the German American or
the Irish American. The people of France saw only Americans.

And we carried one flag that represented one country. Not one

of those immigrant sons would have thought about picking up

another country's flag and waving it to represent who they were.

It would have been a disgrace to their parents who had sacri-

ficed so much to be here. These immigrants truly knew what

it meant to be an American. They stirred the melting pot into

one red, white and blue bowl.



And here we are with a new kind of immigrant who wants the same

rights and privileges. Only they want to achieve it by playing with a
different set of rules, one that includes the entitlement card and a
guarantee of being faithful to their mother country. I'm sorry, that's
not what being an American is all about. I believe that the immigrants
who landed on Ellis Island in the early 1900's deserve better than that
for all the toil, hard work and sacrifice in raising future generations
to create a land that has become a beacon for those legally searching
for a better life. I think they would be appalled that they are being
used as an example by those waving foreign country flags.

And for that suggestion about taking down the Statue of Liberty, it

happens to mean a lot to the citizens who are voting on the
immigration bill. I wouldn't start talking about dismantling the United
States just yet.




I sincerely hope this letter gets read by millions of people
all across the nation !

It is only a matter of time before the Lord dismantles the American empire. The United States stole half of Mexico in a war of conquest(Mexican-American War 1846-48). The Reconquista is a strategy to take back the lands that were stolen from Mexico, so I don't think the Mexicans are too worried about being like the immigrant superstars of the early 1900's.

Distrust of immigrants in times of strife, war etc is not new in the USA and when we wish to demonize them, lies are told about them. In 1924 the USA made a law barring all immigrants from Poland, Germany etc (including Jews whose lives were in danger from Hitler) because as a proponent of eugenics told Congress "there is so much insanity among those people". No, nothing has changed. In the good tradition of the KuKlux Klan, the "know nothings", the anti European immigration law of 1924 and more, we are again making a scapegoat out of the Mexican immigrants (I notice we aren't worried about the much longer borders on the Canadian side). Only the guys who did 9/11 came through NYC, legally, got green cards and learned how to attack us in OUR Flight schools. The only thing we seem to learn from history is that we do not learn from history. Those anti immigration laws are of questionable constitutionality and worse yet, hurt people and do we really need to be hurting -yet more- people in our country? This IS NO SOLUTION! Let's get sane, huh? (if that be possible!).
