Put Americans first over the Dreamers

first_imgWhat other country in the world do undocumented, underage, immigrant children get the reward of shutting down the federal government if they don’t get “their dream fulfilled?”Answer: the United States of America, whose politicians in the current left-wing Democratic Party are counting on these children growing up here with the rights and freedoms of citizenship, and voting for the continuation of the left wing, socialist and communist/progressive agenda.  It’s time the state and federal politicians get that fact into their heads and stop weakening our position in the eyes of other nations and our own citizens. We have our own legal and social issues with people who are Americans  — homelessness, drug addiction, poverty and lack of employment. Fulfill their dreams first.Then Congress can seriously take on the cause of helping others have their dreams fulfilled.God bless America.Adel LucianoAlbanyMore from The Daily Gazette:Foss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationFeds: Albany man sentenced for role in romance scam Not even we damn Bible-totingChristians/Catholics want to see these children punished and suffering. We need to help them with health care,  proper education and love. But that doesn’t mean we give them citizenship.When they reach the age of 25, they need to return to their own countries and take back their heritage or get in line with those who are legally seeking citizenship status. If they have children, their children aren’t allowed to become natural citizens.Our state’s highest politicians, namely Sen. Charles Schumer and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, and our illustrious Gov. Andrew Coumo, are way off base in comparing the immigration of the early 1900s to the cause of the “Dreamers.” No one talks about immigrants who were turned away at Ellis Island and sent back to Italy, Ireland and the Slavic countries and suffered hunger or death. Not one politician talks about legal immigrant’s love of being an American and their rightful move to fully assimilate into their new country.They didn’t expect a free education,  housing or  health care. They worked in the lowliest and hardest jobs just to stay. They didn’t expect to have the federal government shut down because they “dream or deserved this.” They expected to work hard and love this country. They came legally.center_img Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinionlast_img read more
