Migrants

The mass migration phenomenon continues to be a part of the daily news cycle in this country as the immigrants from mostly Central American countries continue their journey to the United States where they seek asylum status as people fleeing gang violence and the endemic poverty of their collective homelands. The president has stated publicly that America does need people who are from certain countries south of the border. John Kelly who is a member of the president’s cabinet said that these people cannot assimilate into our society mostly because of language issues. The truth of the matter is that a person can be a part of our society without being fluent in the English language. It is a fact that Spanish is the second most spoken language in the world. Another point to consider about diversity in our country is the fact that most government documents are available in languages other than English.

America is a society that is aging and cannot afford to exclude those who are seeking a chance no matter how slim to be a part of a great nation that was built by those who were first called refugees. Immigration has always contributed to the greatness of our country. and without it, our society will not survive as we now know it. That is a reality that we cannot afford to ignore.

I am a 64year old male. I live in California. I continute to blog as a way to give my opinion on things that I read about. I am a baby boomer and I feel that because of the life I have experienced, and the times we are living through the need to be examined with a critical eye. I feel this is my purpose in life. Live,learn, and comment. I will attempt to make this happen.
