In the last couple of months there has been much talk about immigration. And rightfully so, because something needs to be done for the sake of our Nation. Here is a story a man shared with me recently.
A couple of years ago, I was in bad shape medically. Making matters worse my wife had left in a haste to return back home. We were recently married but having our differences. So, I had two very compelling reasons to enter Mexico. I applied for a passport but was denied. Still determined, I decided to go another route. Enter Mexico any way I could. I wasn’t getting any better medically, and the love of my life had just vanished like thin air.
A few weeks later, there I was deep in Mexico. Upon entering I was intimidated. Scared. Unsure. Thoughts of what could happen ran through my head like a frieght train. When I had arrived at the border and dealt with the officials, federales, and military I did so with respect because I understood I was at their mercy. Never once did I contemplate what rights I had. I was praying the whole time that God would help me make it across so that I could see the love of my life again and find some help to get well. I was in Mexico only a few weeks. I visited a large metropolitan area and recieved the medical help I was seeking. To my surprise, the doctor in one visit got to the core of my issue. During the entire trip I carried with me an attitude of appreciation. Appreciative of the officials who could of denied my entrance to their nation. I remembered in my heart that it was because of their mercy that I was in their Nation. I was appreciative that I was walking around without some escort attached to me. I also clearly understood I was illegal. That I had no rights. I definitely did not want to bring any unnecessary attention to myself nor participate in anything that may jeopardize my liberty that may result being identified and sent home or worse. I never ever contemplated if I got caught that I would declare demands of my own.
Bottom line- If you are illegally inside the United States of America no matter what country you are from and reading this, and even if your not reading this, here is the message-
You have no rights. Stop marching and protesting while holding signs that declare you have rights. Wrong. Instead, be appreciative you’ve been allowed to roam freely for the time you have. Be appreciate that you have benefited from all that you have from the mercy that has been afforded to you by our Great Nation, after all that is why you have arrived here in the first place. You were after something although you knew it could be stripped away at any given time because you crossed illegally. Don’t forget that. Not because America has been lenient in going after illegal immigrants does that signify you have rights now. Is your family being torn apart? Do you find yourself holding a sign that says “stop tearing families apart”, then you should remember it was your decision to take the risk to enter, so it is not America that is tearing families apart it was your own choice. Those are the risks you take when you decide to do something illegall. You knew it coming in, did you not? Don’t walk around thanking your nation and speaking about how grand it is, or holding your nations flag in our faces, instead you should kiss the ground your walking on and thank the United States of America for providing you the avenue to gain whatever it is you seek. Don’t ask the nation to conform to your demands, you are the illegal therefore you need to conform to the demands of the nation your in. How can one demand or even think for a second that they can demand instant citizenship when they are illegal to begin with? In one word that is -preposterous.
Here is an example to simplify things, when we enter a stadium to watch a baseball game, the stadium has set rules on what can be carried inside and it goes without saying that a ticket is required to enter. Anything illegal that one tries to carry inside will be confiscated or one will be made to toss in the trash prior to entering. There will be those that try to persuade security to make an exception, and if they are lucky enough to be heard, they enter with great joy and feel lucky to have made it. KEEP THAT SENSE OF LUCKINESS AT ALL TIME. Don’t forget it. It is when we do that we lose sight of ourselves and begin to feel entitled to things that we have no business feeling entitled to receive. If you get tossed out of the stadium because you entered with a phony ticket, are you going to march up and down outside the stadium demanding they hear your voice? Then what should be done? An action that will lead you in the direction of obtaining a real ticket. Been here for 15 years and you haven’t lifted a finger once to become legal or a resident and now you walk around bashing our President because he desires to protect our Nation. He is our President and he is doing what he has been called to do. It is you that is here illegally, so put on your thinking cap, give thanks, and find a real resolution and stop wasting time thinking your entitled to anything because with that type of attitude you’ll never be an American. No way. No how. We don’t ask for handouts, we work proudly for them. If you have any rights, I would say it is one, to be treated humanely by the citizens for no matter what border we find ourselves within, we all can agree we would like to be treated like human beings, but that does not include any rights what so ever to anything related to the government your in or its benefits, those are for it’s citizens.
