A letter from a legal immigrant


Dear Fellow American:

I am a legal immigrant from Nicaragua. I came to the United States legally, learned English, and went to work as soon as possible, eager to assimilate to the American culture. I swore that I would not be a burden to the American taxpayer. Many of you did the same.

In 1979 I lost my country of birth to communism. Because I had the blessing of working for Pan American Airlines, I was able to visit my parents and helped them. I witnessed the devastation and dangerous, militaristic environment they had to live in. It’s not something you can easily forget. It will live in my mind and my heart the rest of my life!

And that is why I’m writing this letter to you. Our beloved nation has been under siege for decades! Sadly, it takes the victims of evil regimes to recognize the threat to our nation. No one believed it when I said we were being taken over by forces similar to the ones that decimated Cuba, Nicaragua, Venezuela and so many other countries.

The answer I would get was: “This is America, do not worry”. Well, I did worry and so did many other legal immigrants like me; Dinesh D’Souza is another example.

With the presidential election drawing near, and America at a crossroads, or should I say, having the last chance the God of Abraham will give us to go back to being the “Shiny City on the Hill”, It is up to us to carefully decide which candidate to support.

The last eight years we have experienced a government that sees good as evil and evil as good and the consequences have been devastating. We need true change.

This is not the time to be faithful to a “party”, this is the time for picking the person that will be guided by the principles and values of our Founding Fathers. The candidate with the best record of being faithful to our unique principles of free enterprise, and personal responsibility. And most importantly, vote for the candidate that honors and acknowledges that we are a Judeo Christian nation, would not demand that the church goes against its biblical principles, and will not establish another religion to be the religion of the land.

Legal Immigrants for America (LIFA) is working very hard to give a voice to the tens of millions of legal immigrants and descendants of legal immigrants, who never had a voice. Our time has come for us to speak up and say to La Raza and others: You do not speak for us! We, who have come from South America, Central America, Mexico, and the Caribbean, in addition to those from the rest of the world, strongly oppose lawlessness. We are for the rule of law and demand our immigration laws be enforced.

A country without borders has surrendered and abdicated its sovereignty and is no longer a country. That is a national security threat to all the inhabitants of our country, legal or illegal and it should have been addressed long ago. We need new leadership in Washington.

I appeal to you to select the candidate that will secure our borders and protect the people from any invasion. America is the kindest country on earth and receives far more legal immigrants and refugees than any other country in the world. Is it too much to ask that We the People be the recipients of that kindness, too?

God bless you and God bless the United States of America!
