God Bless Immigration June 29, 2007

Here’s another aspect of immigration… Legal Immigration.

Lee Greenwood will headline a Fourth of July ceremony at Disney World in which 1,000 legal immigrants will be sworn in as citizens.

God Bless, The USA.

The press release quoted Greenwood: “I feel honored and privileged to be part of this event because these immigrants obeyed our laws and played by the rules to meet the requirements for citizenship.”

God bless, Lee Greenwood.

And God bless those legal immigrants. They went through the paperwork. They studied hard. Many had to learn a new language. They showed a commitment to a nation that most of us take for granted.

I’ll bet they turn out to be good citizens too.

For those of you wondering “How the heck is Geezer going to turn this into a post about himself?”…
I met Lee Greenwood in 1969 when he was the lead singer for a group called The Mod Squad. They played at the Mint hotel in Las Vegas when I was a Disc Jockey at a local radio station. He and the band came out to the studio and recorded name Jingles for each of the DJ’s. I still have a tape of them singing my name, acapella.
So I got that going for me.

Food for thought for those who like to automatically brand amnesty opponents as Nativists.

I’m amused at being caused a nativist when my parents were both legal immigrants.

There’s a right way to do things, and a wrong way. This isn’t pedantry. This is important.

Our legal immigration process could stand some more oversight and tweaking, but legal immigrants are more often than not the best Americans we’ve got.

>>legal immigrants are more often than not the best Americans we’ve got.

Geoff, that is a bit of an exaggeration, but the reason it appears so is that America attracts the cream of all other societies to legally immigrate here. By cream I don’t mean the elites. I mean the people who have skills, talent& discipline, and want to do honest hard work and get ahead. Speaking of which…. back to work.

Disc Jockey? Is there anything you haven’t done?

I’ve never dressed up in a Batman costume.

Robin, yeah but no on the Carped Caped Crusader.

^So, who was Batman to your Robin on that night?

Geoff, that is a bit of an exaggeration

Well, I said that because most of the legal immigrants I’ve met have grabbed hold of the American dream in an enthusiastic, no-nonsense way. They also give short shrift to much of the liberal silliness than infests our public discourse.
