    Happy Thanksgiving,

    Point taken that without the immigrant labor the agriculture would be in a mess.
    However, not all immigrants come for work. Times have changed and the U.S. has to readjust its immigration policy.

    We had the Viet Namese, the Cubans and others flee their homeland because of the dangers. But they didn’t threaten anyone, nor rape, nor plunder, nor make outrageous demands on the host countries. That’s why the policy must change to secure and control access. Vetting, who do the U.S. agents check backgrounds with ? The Middle East is in shambles, no records or officials are available. They’re even selling fake passports. So the U.S. should just open the gates ?

      The USA should act in its own best interests to let in the kind of people who advance the democratic aims of the republic. I don’t see Muslims fitting that description. Do you?

    My grandfather was a “bracero” and I’m very proud of that.

    Today’s meal was brought to us by God’s grace through the work he gave us in a country that still allows us to thank God publicly.

      My family were refugees from the Bolshiviks. I am first generation on my mother’s side. We essentially are an immigrant people.

    Let’s not forget the farmers and their families who work all year to ensure there is a crop to harvest.
