Contrary to popular belief, there is a method to enter the United States of America without crossing the Gulf of Mexico or through harrowing desert journeys across the border in the dead of night.
It’s called ‘legal immigration.’
We know, we know … that’s a foreign concept to your mainstream media.
While the system isn’t without its flaws, there are numerous paths one can take to entering the country legally. It’s not an easy path by any stretch of the imagination, but it is a path.
Even refugees seeking asylum have a path they can take.
Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen explained during a congressional hearing that if asylum seekers were to use specific ports of entry, they would not be breaking the law and would not be detained.
“It’s a law Congress passed,” Nielsen explained. “So those people need to come to the ports if they want to seek asylum.”
So there are multiple paths for coming to America that are legal.
Better yet, it just might be the best tactic in trying to keep one’s family together. Check out this scene from an immigration and naturalization ceremony …
What a concept!
According to statistics provided by DHS, approximately 1.13 million aliens obtained Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR) status in 2017. Clearly, there are some people who understand how to use the system properly and legally.
During an event with President Trump, members of the Angel Families on Immigration spoke about the immigration issue.
“I’m one of your legal immigrants,” Sabine Durden, whose son, Dominic, was killed in a vehicular accident by an illegal immigrant, explained.
“I didn’t drag him over borders through deserts,” she said. “I didn’t place him in harm’s way.”
“I came the right way,” Durden continued. “I paid lots of money. It took me five years to become a citizen, a proud citizen.”
He died at the hands of an illegal regardless. A terrible story.
Ray Tranchant, who lost his daughter 16-year-old daughter Tessa in 2007 to an illegal who was driving drunk, said he is “all about legal immigration.”
“But,” he added, “the invaders and people who come over our borders and decide to take the law in their own hands, and maybe are supported by a group of people that, for God’s sakes, I don’t know why they would want to do it — it’s evil, it hurts people, and it costs us billions of dollars a year.”
And it tears families apart. Not the Trump administration who is trying to encourage law-abiding immigrants to keep their families together.
Just like the man pictured above.
