Happy St. Patrick's Day

This is a great day for the Irish and I am quite Irish as my maternal great grandparents and my maternal great grandfather all came from Ireland and were proud to raise good Irish Catholic families. We always celebrated this day and were proud to be Irish Americans. That is why the whole question of limiting immigration and deporting so many who have been living peacefully here is so upsetting to me. We are spending more than three trillion dollars a year to be able to deport people who only want to be good citizens if we let them. If some are not yet citizens, is it because it costs $800 to get you citizenship now? And what are we paying for the hard labor of picking fruit in the fields all day? We are treating those who come to have a better life in a way that is certainly not the way we would want to be treated.
