We should have a moral obligation to support the United States of America and its legal citizens.
Recently I heard a poll that says 40 percent of households in this country are barely getting by. Our middle class is slowly disappearing, but we must help Africa develop theirs.
Also we should feel obligated to help the African students learn and become entrepreneurs while about 28 percent of our population is functionally illiterate. We now rate so low in good education compared to other countries in the world that it is terribly disturbing and should be attended to at once. How embarrassing that we must import mathematicians and scientists from other countries.
Now I understand our country is going to invest millions to help start industry development in Africa. Does this mean that soon our market shelves will be full of goods marked, made in Africa, along with all the goods, made in China?
Isn’t it past time we fill our market shelves with goods labeled “made in the United States of America?”
We are told in a newspaper article written by our president that we must be in partnership to help secure Africa from terrorist groups, while our own southern border is letting in evil-minded people to come here and harm us.
It just seems to me if you are a natural born legal American citizen, you are now second class. God bless and keep us all for we sorely need it.
