View from an immigrant
I arrived in the United States in 1954 having finished the eighth grade. In 10 years, I had a Ph.D. in physics, and today I am a physics professor at a UNC campus.
My first job was at a national weapons lab where Q Clearance was required. How many politicians can even today secure that type of clearance?
The immigration policies were very strict at my time; one needed an economic sponsor and one had to be in excellent health.
The country I witnessed on my arrival is totally different from the one I see today. Nowadays, people don’t work since they are satisfied to live with government welfare, a way to corrupt people and gain votes.
Many base their future on winning the lottery, a way for the government to tax even the poor. Government policies have broken the family structure, especially that of minorities. Jobs are sent out of the country for cheap labor in order to produce products to allow those living on minimum subsistence to purchase necessary items, giving rise to more welfare and joblessness.
Corruption in our country is at Latin American levels. “For my friends everything; for my enemies the law.” It is really very sad!
