How could a child make a defiant demand
when adults brought the child to a foreign land?
The child had no choice, except to acquiesce
to ajust to a life their paresnts thought best.

Parents chose America, land of the free.
"Freedom," a feud since the launch of history,
was never defined to take freedom away.
"Raised American" should have the right to stay!

One race of people brought here against their will
were forced to partake in America's build.
America can't expand the land of the free
until we learn respect, without inconsistency.

Now another group, that for victory,
is under threat of losing identity.
One without approval for their loyalty
degrades the citizens they're striving to be.

Without love and compassion's sovereignty,
a proud nation snubs its inhumanity.
Dreamers should not be stressed in fantasy.
Citizenship should now be reality!!!

Now you are no more strangers and foreigners
(Gentiles) but fellow citizens with the Saints.
Ephesians 2:19

[If Jesus informed the Jews that His death on the cross gave rights to the Jews
as well as non-Jews, shouldn't we likewise learn from His example of unity
and give rights of citizenship to the devoted non-citizens?
