Day 1, Entry #2 with Mary Weatherly discussing HB 56 and the concerns with immigration in the state and the U.S.
I highly agree. This country and its history is nothing but a huge mess of immigration and then the economy learning to adapt. With so many mixed and wonderful cultures, it’s hard to really pin-point as to “whats American.” With the immigration law, that “American Dream” is pretty much being crinkled up and thrown down on the ground with politicians jumping up and down on it.
Personally it saddens me. The other sad part about it is it’s not just our country, it’s the rest of the world. “Oh you can come and visit all you like but…no you can live here or work here.”
Everyone wants to keep everyone else out.
