The Campus Reform news outlet recently visited George Washington University in Washington, D.C., to see how many students would sign their fake petition that recommends deporting an American in exchange for an illegal immigrant.
“Please sign our petition for President Obama to deport one American citizen, in exchange for one undocumented immigrant,” read the petition. “Everyone must be allowed a shot at the ‘American Dream.’ Americans should not be greedy. Let us right the wrongs of our past and make another’s dreams come true.”
The students’ responses were caught on camera and the results are startling. More than two-thirds of individuals approached by Campus Reform reportedly agreed with the statement and signed on, even adding further verbal support.
“It makes sense,” one student told Campus Reform. “Like, I’ve noticed that there is a lot of like hatred against undocumented immigrants and it’s not necessarily their fault.”
Although many students were feeling kind and warm-hearted, America is a successful nation because it follows the laws and policies our founders and leaders put in place. Just because a non-American wants to live in the U.S., does not mean he or she can override our system.
George Washington University students, on your long holiday break, I encourage each of you to read a summary about the Immigration and Nationality Act or visit FAIR’s website and learn about the legal, rational naturalization process America has employed for decades.
