When Mitt Romney used that term as a way to solve the then problem of illegal immigration along our border with Mexico. There is justifiable uneasiness among non citizens who can be arrested and deported for any kind of interaction with law enforcement where an arrest can be made. America is a different place under the leadership of president Trump. Canada says it will welcome those who are afraid of any knock their door. Day or night the fear is the same. In los Angeles those caught up in this human dragnet are given a form that if they sign it they are legally self deporting themselves out of this country.
Many of those who can be forced to leave have lived in this country for years and have families that will be torn apart because of a document signed by president Trump. They also own homes and businesses among other ties to a country we all call home. History has taught us that there will always be those who seek a better life in other places. That is how civilization has survived all the turmoil that humankind has inflicted on itself during, and before recorded history .
America has the room and the need for those who are looking for that other home that is more often than not in a foreign land. The surge of humanity that is constantly moving our way will not be stopped by building a wall, and telling those here to voluntarily leave home. Those who came before us all were immigrants. Lest we forget.
