Hello everybody. My name’s Jerry Garson Tabia law. I’m gonna continue our walk through the history of immigration. I still get the paper. I know I’m a dinosaur because I get a printed version of the paper. And, uh, I know it’s, uh, old thing to do. I wanna bring this up, been talking about. and, uh, the history of immigration, of course, our country 1776 was born our constitution wasn’t ratified until 1787.
We didn’t get our bill rights until 17 91, 17 90 was the first law concerning immigration actualization. We talked about that last time and, uh, I just wanna kind of bring us to modern times during this session. Immigration of course is a big. And it’s was a back big deal back then, of course, as we found out in our last time together that it’s in the constitution, right.
Uh, article one, section eight clause, four speaks to the orderly bring together of, uh, naturalization. So today. It’s a whole different, it’s still relevant in a major way. The reason I brought up the newspaper is because almost, uh, on a daily basis, you’ll see something about immigration. Okay. And I’m not gonna get into politics, uh, here, but of course we have the, our two major parties that fight over this all the time.
If one party saying let’s build a wall, build as high as we can and, and, and deep as we can and keep everybody out. Uh, that are trying to come illegally. Uh, of course we’re, uh, there’s a door that we allow people in legally. And then there’s the other side that says that, um, we shouldn’t have any walls, right?
Walls are bad. Walls are evil. We should just let free flow of people. And, uh, so, and I think there’s a, a gigantic middle ground between. Those two positions. And, uh, so that’s, that’s, that’s the state of things today here in the wall street journal. Um, a couple days ago actually, uh, uh, article a different kind of border crisis.
Okay. So of course we know what’s going on today on our border. We have a new administration. We have seemingly an open door policy. And that’s to be debated somewhere else. And so, but here, this article was talking about in 1914 when, um, there’s a lot of lawlessness okay. In Mexico. And so you would have bands and Raiders and people coming over the border into America and kind of, uh, Robb banks and doing that type of thing.
And that somebody that was popular and that day, the article here was on poncho Villa. How he, he tried to actually, uh, propel an invasion in Mexico. It’s a long story, but anyways, what did world rule world rule Wilson do? Our president of the United States. He sent troops. He sent, uh, old Pershing into Mexico, uh, general perching Pershing.
Messing that up, uh, sent in Mexico, find Pancho Villa capture, ’em get ’em and I was not successful. And, but anyways long history, of course, between not just the United States and Mexico, that’s what we hear about all the time. But we got Canada to the north and we got, uh, New York Harbor people. We have a long history of immigration in this country.
You know, lot to talk about. And, uh, anyways, I’m gonna leave it there for today. I know I went pretty long yesterday, but, uh, the, the idea today, again, as we, uh, discussed yesterday, it, it really boils down to you our, uh, rules. Our laws are, uh, the thrust of what we want to do in this country concerning immigra.
legal immigration is we want to make sure that folks are coming in and we do want, we do welcome folks. This is a country of immigrants, but we want people of good character. That’s the idea and people that will pledge their allegiance to our flag, a major concern with Mexico. And I grew up, I was born in the Whittier, California, grew up in Los Angeles.
Is that. If you have enough people coming over the border, I’m not talking legally. Now I’m talking illegally or undocumented or whatever terms you want to use that they’re coming over and it’s, they’re not aligning by the laws that this country has set up. And, uh, so they come and stay and here’s here’s the situation.
Many are not, don’t have good character. Part of that is evidenced in the idea that they’re not coming legally in their first place. And there’s all kinds of exceptions. And again, I’m not gonna get political, but the point I’m trying to make is that they, uh, their allegiance is, are not to this country.
I’m not saying all of them, but oftentimes, uh, you could drive around when I was growing up Los Angeles. and instead of seeing American flags on people’s front portraits, you’ll see Mexican flags and Honduras flags and been in this way. Lot of flag. Right? Well, what, why would you put, uh, why do Americans put American flags out on front porch?
Because they’re proud of our country and we’re, um, letting the world know that, Hey, this is our country. This is my flag. And we love this country. We. we’re gonna defend it if need be by death. And so that’s, that’s the feeling, uh, you get when other people have other countries flags hanging up, it is what it is, right.
Maybe they’re proud that the they’re from their, from their country of abortion. Why I get that? But the point is is that if you’re gonna be an American, you need. Pledge allegations to our country, to our flag, to our, um, beliefs, to, to the way we, to our society, to the, to our laws, to the constitution. And that’s part of naturalization, right.
Is coming over and legally and, uh, going through the process. And then you, uh, you become a citizen. You make that pledge. There’s ceremonies all the time and it’s spectacular. It’s a great thing. That’s what we want. What we can’t have, right. Is people that are here from whatever Mexico or England or Australia or Russia.
That are not pledging their allegiance to our country. They’re pledging their allegiance to their country, right. Country of origin or whatever the country they choose to. They come here and they they’re pledging their allegiance to Russia and they want Russia to be the world power and everything.
that’s not the idea of becoming an American. And, uh, so anyways, uh, I’ll leave it there. Let me read this here. And by the way, Um, you’re probably wondering how come he reads, uh, the Bible every time he comes on. Well, this is a law lecture. It’s a law talk. The ultimate law, um, is the Bible. Uh, this country was founded, um, uh, Christian, Christian folks found this country.
So it’s a, a Christian nation. Now we’re not a theocracy. We’re not a country that. Requires one to be a Christian or requires, uh, you to worship one God, right? It’s a pluralistic, uh, society. You can worship whoever you want to worship in this country. You don’t have to worship anything. And that’s, what’s, what’s part of what makes this country great.
We don’t want to force people to be converted. We don’t want to make people be a Christian or whatever. Uh, against their will. Right. And as far as what I personally believe that doesn’t work at all anyways, it’s just, uh, if, uh, you want to go to, uh, a country and the, we do have theocracies today in the middle east, and you have not Christians, but you have to be, uh, uh, a different religion or you’re gonna have all kinds of problems.
Right. And if it’s not in the heart, Uh, it’s not real. Let’s just say that. So I believe in individual soul Liberty, that each person individually has to make that decision for themselves. It can’t be forced. It cannot be forced upon anybody. You have to make that decision yourself. But as far as the United States of America is concerned, we were it’s in our constitution.
You can can see it, uh, in the writings of the forefathers. It, we have a, a Christian foundation in the foundation of Christianity is the Bible. I think it’s appropriate in a law setting to, to read portions of the Bible each time, every time I. Um, a talk and then we can go to other portions of law, like the constitution and modern day statutes regulations and the rest of it.
And God said, let there be light. And there was light. Thank you so much. We’ll see you next time. Bye-bye.
