Letter: Why can’t we decide we’re all equal to one another?
In 2019, immigration has been a big thing and it just keeps getting worse and worse.
Families are getting separated and kids are losing their parents. Mothers and fathers are losing their kids. Why? Because of immigration.
What is immigration? Immigration is a process in which people some move to live in a new country.
Immigration has been a sad thing this year. We see in the news that families are getting separated, and we don’t think there’s anything we can do to stop this.
We wouldn’t like it if we hit separated from our family. So why are we letting families get separated? Why are we doing nothing about it?
Put yourself in the shoes of those who are getting separated today. What might be going in their minds. What are they feeling?
If I got separated from my family, I would be crushed because I love my family and I cherish them. They are most important thing to me. I would feel sad and depressed because I would be separated from my mother, my father and my siblings.
So, why are we letting this happen and doing nothing about it? We don’t know if the people that are in those shelters are getting treated right, we don’t know if they will eat anything and we don’t know anything about what they are going through right now.
Why don’t we just stop all this immigration stuff? Why can’t we all just decide for once that we are all equal? We are the same whether we come from different places or families or whether we’re white, or black or brown. Why does that matter so much?
