Here is Joe Biden, falsely stating history. He used sharp language to warn that the United States' promise of possibility and optimism, including toward those seeking refuge, is slipping away and endangering the country's "soul."
“It’s always been true in this country. And if we ever lose that, then we will have lost something incredibly special and consequential here in the United States. We’ll have lost the soul of the country, and I would argue we’re in danger of losing it now. That’s why I’m here,
Again Uncle Joe, along with his fellow comrades, was misleading the American public. The founder’s strongly disagreed with Biden and the Marxist concept. Even though The United States wanted to and needed to expand its boundaries to the Mississippi and beyond, with some having visions of going to the Pacific coast, they realized they needed independent people of good standing to accomplish this ambitious goal. The founders understood people who would cause problems, becomes a burden, or refuses to assimilate into and embrace this new society of rule of law, limited government, divided government, and rule by the people, would be a hindrance and not an asset. The founders said those problem people should stay out.
Yes Marxists that is true. Here are quotes of founders.
Mr. Burke “There is another class also that I would interdict, that is, the convicts and criminals which they pour out of British jails. I wish sincerely some mode could be adopted to prevent the importation of such; but that, perhaps, is not in our power; the introduction of them ought to be considered as a high misdemeanor.”
Mr. Sherman “Now, the regulation provided for in this bill, entitles all free white persons, which includes emigrants, and even those who are likely to become chargeable. [In other words, a liability–See Dub] It certainly never would be undertaken by Congress to compel the States to receive and support this class of persons; it would therefore be necessary that some clause should be added to the bill to counteract such a general proposition.”
Mr. Jackson “Shall stories be told of our citizenship, such as I have read in the Pennsylvania Magazine of the citizenship there? If my memory serves me right, the story runs, that at a contested election in Philadelphia, when parties ran very high, and no stone was left unturned, on either side, to carry the election, most of the ships in the harbor were cleared of their crews, who, ranged under the masters and owners, came before a Magistrate, took the oath of allegiance, and paid half a crown tax to the Collector, as the Constitution required, then went and voted, and decided the contest of the day. On the return of one of the vessels, whose crew had been employed in the affair of the election, they fell in with a shoal of porpoises off Cape Henlopen: “Ha!” said one of them, “what merry company have we got here! I wonder where they are going so cheerfully?” “Going,” replied one of his comrades, “why, going to Philadelphia, to be sure, to pay taxes, and vote for Assembly men!” I hope, Mr. Chairman, we have more respect for our situation as citizens, than to expose ourselves to the taunts and jeers of a deriding world, by making that situation too cheap.”
Mr. Madison “It is no doubt very desirable that we should hold out as many inducements as possible for the worthy part of mankind to come and settle amongst us, and throw their fortunes into a common lot with ours. But why is this desirable? Not merely to swell the catalogue of people. No, sir, it is to increase the wealth and strength of the community; and those who acquire the rights of citizenship, without adding to the strength or wealth of the community are not the people we are in want of. And what is proposed by the amendment is, that they shall take nothing more than an oath of fidelity, and declare their intention to reside in the United States. Under such terms, it was well observed by my colleague, aliens might acquire the right of citizenship, and return to the country from which they came, and evade the laws intended to encourage the commerce and industry of the real citizens and inhabitants of America, enjoying at the same time all the advantages of citizens and aliens.”
Mr. Stone “I would let the term of residence be long enough to accomplish two objects, before I would consent to admit a foreigner to have anything to do with the politics of this country. First, that he should have an opportunity of knowing the circumstances of our Government, and in consequence thereof, shall have admitted the truth of the principles we hold. Second, that he shall have acquired a taste for this kind of Government.”
This is the American way. Those who will abide by our laws, come into the country legally, be an asset and not a burden, learn our constitution, and assimilate into our society will be welcomed. Those who will enter illegally, take advantage of our generosity, wish to harm us, and not become a part of us are not welcomed and will be asked to and required to leave. This is the American way as spoken by those who founded us and not by the Marxists who wish to transform us.
