"My fellow Americans"...those three words have been poetically said by numerous presidents throughout the history of our nation. Yet today, they seem to be the most fitting once again.
Our nation is facing one of our greatest challenges to date: illegal immigration. The very words spark controversy among citizens from coast-to-coast and threaten to divide us even further as a country. However, there is hope. My fellow Americas: this is not President Trump's border wall, it's yours.
Illegal immigration is a crisis that has plagued our nation for too long. Past President's and Democratic leaders (including President Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Chuck Schumer) have openly advocated for stopping illegal immigration and protecting our nation's borders, yet failed to take action on the issue. President Obama famously once said, “We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented and unchecked.”
However, under the leadership of President Trump, Democrat politicians have turned their backs on the American people and conveniently forgotten their previous stances on the issue. Our nation has never seen hatred, lies, and political opposition like we have since 2016. Yet despite it all, President Trump has remained true to his campaign promises and to the American people from all walks of life.
His policies to strengthen the southern border do not simply benefit one group of citizens. They do not unfairly discriminate against immigrants or different demographics. His stances on border security provide a foundation for success for all who call our great nation home.
It is an indisputable fact that drugs and violent criminals are pouring into our country unchecked. Our citizens are suffering and many have already lost their lives at the hands of illegal immigrants who should never have been in our country. Our economy is suffering greatly due to these issues and our law enforcement officials are engulfed by a seemingly endless problem.
The hope for our country rests with each and every one of us. It is our moral obligation to help defend our nation and and our citizens. The wall stands for each and every American. Stopping violent criminals, preventing drugs from entering our nation and destroying our communities, and creating a detailed entry process should be non-political issues that all Americans should agree upon.
Now, more than ever, we need your help. It is up to us, as individual citizens, to unite together in an unprecedented way to show support for President Trump's immigration policies. Together, we can rise above the hate and the vitriol that Democratic leaders, the mainstream media, and liberal extremists perpetuate on a daily basis.
It is time to take our nation back. If you will stand with us, united as One Nation Under God, then please share this message through your social media account. Call you representatives in Congress and the Senate and urge them to support President Trump. Our actions today will be the foundation for tomorrow's generation. May God bless each and everyone of you, and may God bless America.
