Immigrants! Don’t Vote for What You Fled!

LISTEN NOW! (Or Watch Full Program!)Imagine someone who comes from a country whose corrupt government caused the economy of that nation to crash, flees to America and then supports the very same ideals for government that caused them to flee their homeland in the first place. Gloria Alvarez, who is from Guatemala, asks this intriguing question to immigrants; “Why do you support the same policies in the US that caused you to flee your home country”? 


Alvarez connects the dots between big government and corrupted government that limits the economic prosperity and that what causes many people to flee to America is the economic prosperity, “not the free stuff”. She understands what it’s like to have an oppressive government effect the economy. “My home country, like most other nations in Central and South America, is very poor. 54% of the population lives in poverty, and 13% live in extreme poverty. Half of all children under five are chronically malnourished. Crippling government corruption is the norm.” But, what makes America different? Why is it so free? Alvarez continues, “The answer lies first and foremost in the unique American belief in limited government. Why? Because the smaller the government, the less the corruption. And the smaller the government, the more individual freedom and personal responsibility, and given those things, along with hard work and talent, you can accomplish your life’s goals.”
 
Alvarez challenges the narratives that many have used to combat the ideals of border control when she points out these words; “And of course a nation has an obligation to enforce its borders. Certainly, every country in Central and South America does – in fact, much more so than the US.” She continues to address how many other nations have vast natural resources, but have yet to match the same economic prosperity of America. She brings it all together when she addresses the issue with this vital question; “Do you think by electing politicians who will “fight for the people,” “fight for social justice,” and raise taxes on the “one percent” who are “exploiting” the wealth of the “99 percent” that you will get ahead? In other words, will you support the same policies and vote for the same types of politicians here who made such a mess back home?”
 

Who better to talk about these important issues than someone who understands both sides of the issue. The reality about opportunity is that it requires effort and costs you. When someone gets the job, they still have to show up each day and work hard. Freedom requires hard work. It requires citizens willing to stand up and fight for the ideals and values that America is built upon. See the full comments from Alvarez as you are reinvigorated in the reality of the freedom in America, and so much more.
