Liberals have been condemning our current policy on illegal immigrants. They make outrageous claims about mistreatment and make it out like ICE and border patrol are evil. But they do so without thinking of any consequences.
They don’t think of the burden on the healthcare system or some undesirables that might come through such as members of MS-13. If you disagree with them you are a bigot or can’t possibly understand their plight. But Liberals would be hard pressed to argue with an immigrant who went through the legal process and actually disagrees with their open border nonsense.
Neil Gouveia was born in Guyana and immigrated here when he was just 7 years old. His family came here legally. They had to leave a family member behind because she was too sick. But at the end of the day, he takes pride in the fact that his family did things the right way.

“Today, if someone hops the US border and gives birth to a child, that child gets the exact same benefit that took my parents eight years to achieve. They waited their turn, but babies born to illegal immigrants in the U.S. automatically become citizens. That’s a huge flaw in our immigration system.
What President Trump is pitching is already practiced in Australia and Canada. They’re very selective about who they admit. I also think it’s legitimate to separate children, initially, to verify whom they really belong to. If these people don’t have documents to prove the children belong to them, border agents have to act in their best interest. Human and child trafficking is a huge problem.
“Before the 2016 presidential campaign, I didn’t fully understand how the left and right operated. I was always fed the narrative that since I was a person of color — my mother of Indian descent, my father Portuguese — an immigrant and gay that I had to follow a script: Support the Democratic Party and liberal values; conservatives were the boogeyman.
“After Trump won the election, my friends instantly wanted him to fail as a leader. I would explain that if he failed, we failed. This point of view was met with heavy backlash and a barrage of insults. Anyone who showed any type of support toward Trump was deemed the enemy.
“People accused me of turning my back on minorities and their struggle. I remained defiant because my parents’ journey here was not easy, and I could not betray the country that has done so much for me.”
“I’m fortunate to be a U.S. citizen because I’m able to live a quality life and enjoy the benefits this country has to offer. I find it disheartening when people gripe about being oppressed in America, especially other immigrants. I firmly believe that living in America is a privilege. This country is truly the land of opportunities,”
