Immigration… From an Immigrants Perspective

America has been on the edge for a long time and she is now teetering as far forward over the edge as a country possibly can before it falls over the cliff and is no longer recognizable.  We either wake-up immediately and get-involved or there will be no America, at least not as you and I knew her, for your children and grandchildren… nor anything to take care of you from the benefits you already paid for!

By Marion Algier – Ask Marion

The question is… which America do you want to live in:

The one above or the one below… (photos taken approximately the dame day) and it has nothing to do with race, color or religion, at least not to the average Americans I know.  It has to do with the law, sovereignty and becoming part of a melting pot and all that goes with it.

Horror at the Border

But that isn’t necessarily the situation with those in our administration. The following photo hangs on Eric Holder’s office wall displaying Lady Justice peeking under her blindfold to check everyone’s skin color.

I am an immigrant.  A legal immigrant and have lived in the U.S. for going on 60-years.  My parents waited in line for 7-years… for their turn to come to the U.S. from Austria after WWII.  My mom was German and my dad was Austrian.  They met in an American prisoner of war camp.  They were both part of a medical unit that surrendered at the end of the war; my mother was a nurse in the Red Cross. Both their families were heavily involved in the underground during the NAZI years.

My parents, having worked and saved from nothing in war torn Austria, paid their own way and mine; I was born during the 7-years they waited to come.  They secured sponsors who were responsible for them, pretty much in every way for the first 5-years they were in the United States.  In fact that was the system, if you wanted to come to America, you not only had to wait in line and the lines were never longer than after the World Wars, especially after WWII, but everyone needed a sponsor… and those sponsors, not the government and not the taxpayers needed to assist and watch over those they sponsored… give them a place to stay; help them with funds if needed; get them medical assistance and help them find work, etc.  All immigrants, until they were naturalized, had to register with the federal government every January so they always knew exactly where we were.  And everyone knew the rules and that if you got into problems you would lose your green card and be sent back to your home country.

Coming to America is a privilege and many people who could not find qualified sponsors; came from countries with long lines that were always of over quota; were not refugees in the true sense of the word; or did not have a special skill or talent that America needed, so the government essentially sponsored them… didn’t get to come.  That is also life.  A country can’t let everyone in, especially not all at once!  Mexico, who is helping to facilitate the present invasion of America at our southern border, has very strict immigration laws.  And have you ever considered moving to New Zealand… again very strict provisions of who they take and allow to stay.

Having arrived in New York and then heading on to California with no debt, $40 in their pockets, four suitcases and me, my dad found a full-time job within 2-weeks and my parents enrolled in English classes at the local high school within a month of them arriving.  Within the first 3-months that we were here, we moved from our sponsors’ converted  garage to our own place, my had added a part-time job and were all well on the road to speaking English.  Almost everyone in our circle for friends was a relatively new immigrant, but not just from Austria or Germany, from all over the world, and at our gatherings everyone spoke English.  Everyone usually brought two dishes… one from their home country and one new American dish that they were proud that they had learned to make. By the time I was 3 I could translate for my folks and helped the little American boy across the way improve his speech and English, said his mother.

My sister and brother were born in America, American citizens, and all of us were encouraged to retain our German language and our heritage, but the focus was on speaking English, learning American traditions, knowing American history and becoming Americans… not Austrian or German… hyphenated Americans, as immigrants and others are known today.

And I explain this to illustrate what becoming part of a melting pot and all that goes with it means.  If you really want to become part of a new country and culture… you want it to be better for your children and generally better than the place you are leaving, which means that the new country… America needs to survive.  Between the onslaught of illegals in unmanageable numbers, the ideological infiltration of anti-American Progressives as well as the infiltration of groups who are hostile to our way of life including the Bill of Rights and America’s Judeo-Christian background, America… at least not the one people looked to and wanted to live in, will not survive.

I speak, read and write perfect English and German (as well as any of us do anyway); both without an accent. I also speak rudimentary French and some Spanish.  I can BBQ a steak, make a killer hamburger or bake red velvet cake as well as Austrian Apple Strudel or German Rouladen… but also homemade tamales, thanks to an old co-worker.  But I bleed red, white and blue… a German relative told once while there on vacation, get chocked up when I talk about what America means to me and I get tears in my eyes when I recite the pledge of allegiance (including under God) or sing the star-spangled banner loudly (even if badly) while at an event or watching the fireworks.

This past weekend my 3rd generation Glendale, CA born husband, staying in an L.A. area hotel, and not in an overly Hispanic area, went downstairs to watch the final World Cup game… Germany vs. Argentina.  And being married to me, he wore his Germany hat, picked up on a previous trip, and was rooting for Germany.  There were 3 TV’s in 3 separate rooms set-up for the game.  When he got down there, all 3- TV’s were set to channel 34… an all Spanish station.  When he asked if one of the TV’s could be set to ABC, the manager flat said, “No”… commenting that the coverage was so much more exciting in Spanish… too bad for people in the room that only spoke English or another non-Spanish language.  They all had to go to a nearby sports bar, missed the beginning of the game and had to pay more than at the hotel for their drinks. Probably lucky for me that I wasn’t there… because I wouldn’t have gone quietly!! Under the circumstances, I can certainly tell you that I was extra glad that Germany won… and in the bigger picture this just illustrates how far down the road America has traveled… We have already given up our identity, our sovereignty, our language in many areas and somewhere along the way we decided to let the tail wag the dog.  We have given up on the melting pot concept that made America great.  We have instead let the Progressives make us feel bad about American pride and embrace everything that divides us instead of uniting us.  And if you are in the leadership position trying to fundamentally change a country… ‘divide and conquer’ is one of the greatest tools you have in your toolbox.

I always, of course, root for the USA.  But if knocked out or not competing in an event at the Olympics or World Cup… I root for Austria and Germany… in that order  Why not?  It is okay to be proud of your heritage.  What is not okay is to move to another country and expect them to change for you…

America has been under attack by enemies from without and within, who have steadily whittled away at the American dream, the U.S. Constitution and at the very fiber of America, for decades.

We continue to find ourselves running backwards because we do not take the time to understand our enemies.  We are constantly in damage control as our Progressive administration manufactures one crisis after another, like the one happening at the border right now. It is why we have lost in the Middle East and instead of defeating the terrorists we have emboldened them to move forward with their worldwide Islamic Caliphate… which has always been their goal; we never understood our enemy… For Ramadan, Obama adviser, Mohamed Elibiary, reasserted U.S. is ‘Islamic country’.

It is time to decide if are are still a sovereign country of if we have already rolled over and become victims of the ruling elites’ plan for a New World Economic Order (NWO) that they will control. And if the decision is that we are still a country, it is time for people all over the the United States to get involved like the patriots in Murrieta, CA, like the militias who have headed to Texas and like Governor Sarah Palin who called for President Obama’s Impeachment. As Donald Trump recently said, “We have to decide… We either are a country or we aren’t!” And if we don’t have a border, we aren’t!! In a shocking poll: 73% of Americans now support the impeachment of President Obama NOW and 14% more at some point. So what are we waiting for?

A Country With Not Border Is Not a Country

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.

    Great article!

    As a Texan, I live in one of the most diverse cultures in the United States. We have immigrants from everywhere. All of them add to the tapestry of our state, and nation. These are people who came here, wanted to be Texans, and Americans. They worked hard to learn our culture and how to be the best they can be. They should be celebrated.

    On the other hand, we have illegals who carry the flag of other nations, and in the case of those from Mexico, shout cries of “Reconquista!” [the retaking of the United States by any means necessary, including violence] They are fueled by radical, racist hate groups like La Raza [The Race] These people do NOT want to be Americans. They don’t care about America, nor do they care what happens to her. They are selfish and want to take from those who make the USA great.

    We need good immigrants. Those who have a lot to offer our country. Those who understand and value what it is to be an American.

    Simple fact – the opinion of Obama et al stops at “America was created by invading white people, is an illegitimate nation run by oppressive whites who only make slaves out of brown people, and the world will never be safe so long as whites are free to roam on a continent where they do not belong. On in redressing these historical injustices can mankind move forward … and only when there aren’t sufficient whites to be a threat will there be peace, wealth, and freedom for humanity.
