I am wondering if the elected representatives in Washington, D.C., are all deaf. This is the United States of America. Most people were born here, live and work here. We raise our families here. Our soldiers fight and die for it, and most people know that it is the best country on Earth.
Immigrants come here for what people here have — freedom of speech and religion; the right to work and live free. If they want what the rest of us have, they must apply for citizenship; learn and speak English; obey all the rules and laws.
People living here have to obey those rules. Immigrants should not try to change those already living here.
The only right the immigrants have is to leave if they don't like the U.S. way of life or the rules. They can go back to their own country and make changes there.
