It’s Not Political

This major divide between Americans sickens me. It’s not even political. It’s actually an issue of humanity. All human life is valuable. If you think otherwise; based on a person’s skin color, religion, country of origin, or sexual orientation, then you are seriously lacking in your humanity.

Everyone deserves to be treated with dignity. I don’t give a rat’s ass what color they are or where they came from. If dogs and cats in shelters were being treated the way immigrants in border camps are being treated, people would be outraged. Even convicted felons are treated better! They have access to health care, clean water, food, a bed to sleep in, and shelter from the scouring heat!

So many people in this country think in terms of what they’re going to lose, or what will be taken from them – as if being kind and helping others is going to damage their own way of life. People need to start thinking about how they would feel if they were in the same situation as those immigrants who just want a better life for themselves, but mostly for their children. Why else would they risk their lives to travel all the way across Mexico to come here? It’s not for free shit. It’s for survival. Wouldn’t you do whatever you had to do to protect your children from harm? They aren’t different.

Some people think that immigrants are taking away jobs from Americans. Seriously? Americans are too good to take the menial shit jobs these immigrants are happy to take! I know through various connections that caucasian’s seeking jobs refuse to take jobs working in the fields, regardless of how bad they say they need a job. Immigrants are happy to take the jobs of working in the fields, doing housekeeping, transportation jobs, and more. They are contributing to this economy!

Humanity seems to have been lost almost completely in the last couple of years. It’s truly sad.

There’s so much more I have to say… but it’s exhausting. Humans are exhausting. The hateful attitudes of so many people make this Proud American ashamed of my fellow-Americans.

If you don’t agree with me, that’s fine. I just hope you’re happy with yourself and that when it’s time to enter The Pearly Gates, you won’t be too disappointed when you’re turned away.

Imagine a place, unlike your safe and comfortable home. Imagine your neighborhood being bombed and your children afraid and crying. Imagine not knowing if your family will survive.


Imagine your neighbor’s children being abducted for sex trafficking. Imagine being fearful that your children will be next.


Imagine your spouse has been brutally murdered by men with powerful guns, your children witnessing this atrocity.


Imagine your family starving and ill from malnutrition. Imagine living in filth; unclean water, no clean clothing, rodents sharing the same living quarters. Imagine living in such poverty! 



Imagine traveling a great distance, in dangerous conditions, trying to get your family to a safer place.


Imagine seeking safety, freedom, and a future for your children. Imagine fighting for a chance to have a life as the life you have now. 

Wouldn’t you pray for help if you were in a dire situation? Wouldn’t you try to get away to safer ground, to protect your children?

There are many, many reasons why people travel such great distances to other countries like the US. It shouldn’t matter the color of their skin or the country they came from. It shouldn’t matter their religion. They are HUMAN BEINGS. Let’s treat them as such.

Should we take care of the people in our own country? Yes, of course. But does that mean turning our backs on people who are less fortunate just because they’re not from the US? Should we not help them because they’re brown or black or a shade other than white?


Once here, should children be separated from their parents and put in cages? YES, they are CAGES! Imagine that! How would you feel if your children were separated from you? You don’t know if they’re being taken care of or if they’re hungry or cold. You don’t know if they’re crying for you, wondering why you haven’t come for them. They are most definitely scared!


Immigrants made this country what it is today, like it or not. Not all people entering this country are trying to soak us for what they can get. Some are coming from places like El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras – which are the most dangerous places on Earth! These people are looking for a better life for themselves and their children!


I’m not saying we should have open borders. I’m saying we need to treat people with some compassion!
