Dear President Elect Obama,
There are many things going on that need immediate attention and I feel that Immigration and gay rights are two of the most important. These are important if you wish for the economy to succeed.
The first of these issues I wish to cover is immigration; personally I feel there is nothing wrong with illegal immigration. If someone wishes to come over here to do better for themselves who are we to judge them? First-off, wasn’t America born of illegal immigrants coming across from Europe. And if it wasn’t for this “illegal” immigration Americans wouldn’t have a chance to personally experience a different culture. Now they have the ability to become friends with a person from a different culture and have them cook and taste real home cooked food from their country. And then there are the people who claim that the immigrants are taking their jobs but the truth is if these people applied themselves properly then they should be able to get the jobs but the problem is that they are looking for someone else to blame but themselves. The immigrants can’t get jobs that require a college degree so how come Americans aren’t working on getting a degree instead of leading a mediocre life and blaming on the immigrants.
Another issue is gay rights. Gays should have all the same rights anyone else, but because they are different we discriminate against them and take away their rights. Is this not unlike slavery because black peoples’ appearance was different they were discriminated against and their freedom was taken away? Gays are constantly being discriminated against and we take control of them by telling them that they can’t marry the same sex or that they aren’t allowed to adopt. What gives us the right to tell people who they are allowed to love, or that a gay house is not a proper home for a child? Also the church shouldn’t even get involved in this. If the gay family is not Christian why should they be told how to live by a religion they don’t belong to that tries to tell them how to live? They are just like us, so why can’t they choose like us?
I think you should pay close attention to these topics and try to do what is right. Everyone has their own choice. We should not judge anybody no matter what race, religion, or sexual orientation.
