I have kept my mouth shut on the immigration issue…that is until now. With the current push to have the National Anthem, our National Anthem, sung in Spanish as well as English, I have to say “Enough is Enough!!”
I can understand folks wanting to come to the United States and make a living here. Of course I can. We are an extremely blessed country (though it does seem we tend to forget the magnitude of that blessing from time to time). I can understand but I do not sympathize.
If you are here illegally and you want to stay, do it legally. Become an American citizen. Take the oath. Swear your allegiance. Pay our taxes. Sing our National Anthem…but sing it in our national language.
Afterall, when Francis Scott Key penned this tribute to American fortitude, it had nothing to do with illegal immigrants or people trying to claim rights that were not theirs to claim. It had everything to do with pride in ourselves and the right to be our own country with a government “by the people” and “for the people”…The United States of America…not the united states of Mexico.
