POLITICIANS ARE SELLING OUT ALL OUR COUNTRY WAS FOUNDED ON AND ALLOWING INVADERS TO STEAL OUR COUNTRY FROM US
I am so disgusted with politicians who say we are all immigrants to the United States because revisionists of our nation's history have left out the important fact that many of us can trace our ancestors back to the earliest settlers. My ancestors are listed in the registry of soldiers who fought in the American Revolution, and thus they were not immigrants to the United States.
There was not a United States at that time to immigrate to. I consider myself a daughter of the American Revolution, and sadly, many today are not learning the important history of their heritage. Instead, children are taught to blend in and be a part of the great melting pot with no sense of where they came from.
Another thing that disgusts me is that our politicians say that illegal immigrants are doing jobs that Americans will not do. That is a big lie. I have done many jobs in my life, including waiting tables, working as a maid in a hotel, cleaning houses, baby sitting and any other job that I could get when I was young. These jobs helped make me into the person I am today.
There is no reason whatsoever that our youth should be taught to turn their noses up at entry-level jobs, and we could fill all of those jobs that the government says Americans will not do. I sincerely hope that voters turn out in the next election and vote for the candidates most likely to crack down on illegal immigration.
