Putting 'Americans First' Begins At Our Nation's Borders

Trump’s vision for America parallels Lincoln’s.
With all of the focus on using the term “immigrants” to describe all aliens present in the United States irrespective of whether they have actually been admitted for permanent residence, for a temporary period as nonimmigrants, or are illegally present in the U.S. because they either evaded the inspections process conducted at ports of entry or violated our law after being lawfully admitted, one term central to immigration has been carefully avoided by nearly all politicians and so-called journalists.
That term and the people it represents is CITIZEN!
President Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address included this aspirational excerpt:
“…that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom[8]—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
Today politicians from both political parties are quick to praise America’s 16th president. However, how on earth can politicians who claim to represent the best interests of America and Americans ignore that our nation’s open borders and failures to fairly and effectively enforce and administer our immigration laws in a meaningful way have inflicted great harm and suffering to our nation’s citizens?
Our immigration laws were enacted to protect national security, public safety, public health and the jobs and wages of Americans.
Our immigration laws have absolutely nothing to do with race, religion or ethnicity. A review of
8 U.S. Code § 1182 - Inadmissible aliens will provide irrefutable evidence of the nature of our immigration laws and how they focus solely on threats to the well being of America and Americans.
Yet the radicals and globalists accuse advocates for secure borders and effective but fair enforcement of our immigration laws of being racists, bigots, xenophobes or haters.
We have all experienced the situation where in preparing for a family event, whether it was a holiday dinner, a wedding or other such joyous occasion had to remove some friends or relatives from the invitation list. Not because we hated them but because we did not have the resources to invite them all.
