USA: On marches and immigration

“This nation is a work in progress—there’s an imagined end goal— AMERICA —but that end is still very far off. If Americans have lost sight of this fact then it is not the fault of the multitudes who come in from abroad to lend a hand, but rather shows how culpable those who call themselves Americans have become at outsourcing the future and integrity of this country to those aliens that we call politicians.” So says Haiti-born Nightshift, as he considers the impact of the May 1 pro-immigrant demonstrations and expresses hope that the momentum will not be lost.
