A reasonable argument about Immigration…..


Newspapers simply won’t publish letters to the editor which they either deem politically incorrect (read below) or which do not agree with the philosophy they’re pushing on the public. This woman wrote a great letter to the editor that should have been published; but, with your help, it will get published via cyberspace!

From: “David LaBonte”

My wife, Rosemary, wrote a wonderful letter to the editor of the OC Register which, of course, was not printed. So, I decided to “print” it myself by sending it out on the Internet. Pass it along if you feel so inclined. Written in response to a series of letters to the editor in the Orange County Register:

Dear Editor:
So many letter writers have based their arguments on how this land is made up of immigrants. Ernie Lujan for one, suggests we should tear down the Statue of Liberty because the people now in question aren’t being treated the same as those who passed through Ellis Island and other ports of entry.

Maybe we should turn to our history books and point out to people like Mr. Lujan why today’s American is not willing to accept this new kind of immigrant any longer. Back in 1900 when there was a rush from all areas of Europe to come to the United States, people had to get off a ship and 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.

They had waved good-bye to their birth place to give their children a new life and did everything in their power to help their children assimilate into one culture.
Nothing was handed to them. No free lunches, no welfare, no labor laws to protect them. All they had were the skills and craftsmanship they had brought with them to trade for a future of prosperity.

Most of their children came of age when World War II broke out. My father fought alongside men whose parents had come straight over from Germany , Italy , France and Japan . None of these 1st generation Americans ever gave any thought about what country 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 or 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 sacrificed 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.

GRA089. MELILLA, 15/10/2014.- En torno a un centenar de inmigrantes permanecen encaramados en la valla fronteriza entre Melilla y Marruecos y se niegan a bajar como les indica la Guardia Civil, que mantiene un despliegue de seguridad en la zona de Villa Pilar, entre el aeropuerto de Melilla y el cementerio musulmán de Sidi Guariach.Numerosas patrullas de la Guardia Civil han formado un cordón de vehículos a pie de valla en un tramo amplio del perímetro, donde los subsaharianos permanecen desde pasadas las 06:30 horas, cuando se registró un intento de entrada masivo protagonizado por más de 200 inmigrantes.EFE/F.

  1. You have MY vote!! Excellent letter. I express these feelings myself and people say I’m heartless and politically incorrect, etc. This country is swimming in debt to China and China’s economy is on the rocks – where do people think all this money is going to keep coming from – THEY sure don’t want to pay more taxes! (am I making sense or starting to rant?)

  2. Carol

    My grandfather, Charles Schlaepfer came thru Ellis Island in the late 1800’s. He was from Basil, Switzerland and did not speak english. He settled in Brooklyn, N.Y. and went on to learn our language, get an education and become a successful Graphic Artist in the early 1900’s, even creating one of Lipton Tea’s most famous poster. He was proud to be an American as was every early immigrant in our country.
    Too many of today’s immigrant’s are here “illegally”. They come here to “get” not give. They come to “take” our jobs and “undermine” our system of laws, language and government. I know this first hand. I live in a siburb of “Sanctuary City” L.A., in a “once” beautiful and “vibrant” community now called “Sanctuary City” Pomona, Calif..(35 miles due east of L.A.
    I have Military in my family and I speak for them when I say “enough”.
    I pray that God returns to our great country thru all of the good people I know are ready to take our country back.
    “Political” Correctness be dammed. “God’s” correctness is what I care about most of all.
    God’s blessings for our journey back to America.
