Immigration 101 — History Retold

Immigrant children in cageThe Five Steps of Immigration.

History retold.

(1) First, you destroy their lands by armed invasion, bribery, colonizing, looting, deforesting, raping, murdering, spreading diseases, enslaving, and lynching, and that too, all in the name of God.

(2) You turn rich, prosperous, peaceful countries into poor, hopeless, hateful countries, with people begging for mercy. And they beg at your doorsteps — for food, jobs, and shelter.

(3) Then you turn your guns again on them. Build walls to stop them, and erect cages to imprison their children.

(4) And your own people who prospered through centuries from their blood, sweat, and tears, and looting their farms, nature and environment — call them criminals, and support your acts in the name of law.

(5) Then, they thank their God for being so generous and forgiving, and go to sleep peacefully.

We are talking about immigration.

Immigration 101.
