What Law To Obey - You Choose

Sunday, July 7, 2019

Born in South Florida and being a resident of this area for 27 years, I have seen both the liberal and conservative side of our country.  My family is diverse in the fact that we are made up of truck drivers, bankers, felons, retailers, and public servants (white collar, blue collar, and prison issued orange).

The #1 topic of our country for the past several years is immigration border security. Never mind our political leaders have brainwashed all of us to accept deficit spending since the 70's, we are now being told that the citizens of our country are not allowed to pick and choose what laws we are to obey, but the individuals who are crossing our Southern boarders are allowed to do just that. 

Instead of our Congressmen wasting our valuable tax dollars debating such nonsense, why doesn't someone from the left or right, just submit a bill to the House or Senate changing the current immigration laws? Why? Because those politicians would not get re-elected.

Why don't these same politicians charge the money it will take to allow illegal immigrants to reside here to their home state?  Because those politicians would not get re-elected.

Why don't these same politicians who raised their hands (all 24) to give free health care to all illegal immigrants stand behind their convictions and charge the cost to their home state?  Again, because those politicians would not get re-elected.

I'm neither a Republican, nor a Democrat. I am an Independent.  I do not force my family values on others, but regardless or what we believe or don't believe, we must accept, as Americans, that we are to obey and uphold the laws of our country.  If we are to be a country without borders, then what do we say to the 1,000s of immigrants found in Dalton, Ga., over the past 30-40 years (who were deported).

"Hey, we (the U.S.) were wrong...come on back Amigo."   If we ran our individual families the way our country is run, we would all be bankrupt. I have a college education and don't understand this, so can someone explain this to me please?
