President Teddy Roosevelt on Immigration


President Teddy Roosevelt on Immigration

We are loosing America!

The public signs and phone options in Spanish are just one of hundreds of symptoms of America’s decline. So is the increasingly common practice of presenting one’s self as an African-American, Mexican-American, Italian-American, etc., etc..

The same can be said when angry Americans and immigrants brandish their original country’s flags during various protests, or desecrate our own.

America is being balkanized into ethnic, religious, and life-style factions all vying for political, social and economic domination. It can reasonably be said that America is at war with itself.

In the late 1940’s there were immigrants from Germany who entered our school system in my small town and one such family lived on my block. The children learned to speak and read English rapidly because our schools and the American Culture demanded that they did so. I recall that their parents and the elderly normally learned our language more slowly. Our Lutheran Church kindly had German services for the elderly that continued for many years.

Although adult German immigrants were sometimes slower than their children to learn English, they did learn to speak and read our language. I was blessed to date a girl from a family of German heritage. Many of her relatives (Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles) could speak fluent German, but they were also fluent in English and English had become their primary language.

I married this young lady in 1963 and have been blessed by my beloved wife and her  wonderful and thoroughly American family ever-since.

I never once head any of my wife’s relatives refer to themselves as German-Americans. All of them worked hard, took no governmental hand-outs, and they lived successful and relatively prosperous lives as proud Americans.

America must return to Teddy Roosevelt’s strong views on the ways that legal American Immigration should be managed.

Regarding a different, but related matter, Illegal immigration must be stopped immediately.

I ask you to be sure to vote conservative…very conservative.

P.S.. President Teddy Roosevelt’s resounding words about American Immigration were sent to me by an exemplary legal German post-WWII immigrant school-mate named John Plume.
