Illegal Entry Into This Country SHOULD BE A FELONY

An estimated 500,000 people protested in the streets of LA, and other thousands protest in other cities across the country against the proposed legislation that would make it a felony to be in the USA illegally. I agree that our immigrant workers are a part of our society, but there are ways to let them be here legally.

It SHOULD be a felony to be in this country without proper entry. If we do not take immediate action to better protect our borders and the people already here that ARE legal citizens, we will be in dire straits later on.

Teddy Roosevelt had the right idea in this excerpt from a letter he wrote on January 3, 1919 (just three days before he died) to the president of the American Defense Society.

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
