This Immigrant is for U.S. Borders

Port of Entry - MiritI've heard the argument for not having a wall and allowing illegal aliens to enter and reside in the U.S.

I disagree despite the misfortune that I went through in the middle of an 8-year Green Card process in the U.S.

My family came to the U.S. from Israel and Nigeria, Africa in 1986. I was 10. We came legally because we had family here that we had a business with. Long story but that's the short of it.

Mid the process, the business partnership split up and we had to change gears.
It wasn't until I was 18 that we actually got our Green Cards. That whole time, my family paid taxes, filed taxes, worked and had private medical insurance.

The only bummer for me was that the law changed when I was 16 and you had to have a social security number to get your driver's license and I didn't have one yet, so had to wait until I was 18 to drive.

Despite the difficulties and my love for all of my immigrant friends and family, I am a staunch supporter of legal immigration, borders and fair law and order.

Today, I am a dual citizen of Israel and America and am very proud to be an American.
