Immigrant in the U.S.A.
moved me with your screams,
me of artist Edvard Munch with his painting.
am an American who once was a teenage refugee
experienced the cold nights on the grassy hills,
Marine Base, Camp Pendleton.
was lonely and destitute -- sin familia
I have been
there, working menial jobs.
my heart is forever thankful to my American sponsor,
took me in after a legal process
countless legal immigrants from around the world have done.
is not of endless resources, I understand;
cannot take in all the world...

Linh---respectfully, that was a poor example, if you are trying to plead a case for illegal immigrants.
Legal immigrants are welcome, and benefit this country. Illegals do the opposite. They TAKE from the taxpayers, and send their dollars home, and out of this country. Thus, America grows weaker, as she is being DRAINED.
