Re: “The pardon of Joe Arpaio triggers memories of an immigrant

Jeez, what a contemptible framework this story is. The whole argument is, "Look at the poor miserable wretch, and how cruel the evil Americans are!" I've little reason to doubt the stories of foreign barbarism in the world, nor would I blame an individual from trying to illegally enter a country in search of somewhere better. But in the same token my own people are my concern, not strangers. I will not give up my community, my home, my bed to someone just because I might pity their situation. Such reckless generosity is dangerous and unsustainable aside from being the absolute height of foolishness. Call my cruel or harsh, but it is unjust nonetheless to let someone who doesn't belong in this country to stay here illegally and sap resources from my true countrymen. I'd rather be called names than live in a country I no longer recognize surrounded by strangers. I will reserve my compassion and energies towards my own first and foremost, and I would recommend everyone do the same.
