Revisiting Immigration Reform…from 1907
With all the massive immigration rallies we are seeing these days, all across the country; isn’t it interesting to note this is not a new topic?
Below is a speech given by President Theodore Roosevelt, back in 1907, on this very same subject.
I particularly want to bring your attention to the part of the speech where he says:
“… 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.” Theodore Roosevelt 1907
As Americans, we are not at all against immigrants entering our country legally!
There are many voices out in the media and among our politicians today, who are blurring this line between legal and illegal immigration… and it should not be!
Nobody is protesting the thousands of legal immigrants who are living here in America; because truly that is what our country was and is founded upon.
What we do protest, and protest strongly, I might add, are all the many (estimated to be over 20 million) illegal immigrants, who are today wanting to gain citizenship in our country, who have no intentions of assimilating themselves into the American society; and who have no loyalty towards the American people, nor to our flag!
All in all, I think President Theodore Roosevelt said it pretty good.
As far as I can see it, to the extent we have people in Washington DC today, in positions of power, even in the White House, who can’t see this difference, and who are constantly making decisions that run against the will of the American people, on this and many other subjects, all of which run against the grain of our U.S. Constitution; then I think it is well past time for us to replace these people, with men and women who at least have common sense, and who don’t have hidden political agendas… such as the present lot has, who are wanting to see us absorbed into this so called “New World Order!”
That’s my opinion, anyhow… what’s yours?
I think this is one email that needs to be forwarded until every
This speech was given in the year 1907, which is one hundred and 3+ years ago…
and the message is just as relevant today, as it was then!
