AN OUTLINE OF THE GOOD SAMARITAN ACT
The United States of America has been dealing with an immigration crisis for many decades. As serious as it is, our government has not been inspired to solve the problem. Meanwhile, our economy is being ripped off everyday, and undocumented immigrants are sometimes being oppressed and living in fear in our nation. This is absolutely not what America is. We cannot afford to ignore this problem any longer, because the safety of our nation and the stabilization of our economy depend on a better immigration system. America cannot be safe economically while millions of people are day in and day out in our economy undocumented. America cannot be safe socially while millions of people are living in our society undocumented. And surely, we cannot be safe spiritually while injustice is flourishing, and people are constantly being oppressed and living in fear in our country.
Bestselling Author Rolson St Louis, after working for many years in the construction industry and witnessing the hard contribution of immigrants to help build the United States, has decided to introduce a new a proposal called "Good Samaritan Act" to Congress and has become convinced that making the Good Samaritan Act law of the land will contribute in keeping our nation safe and the economy stabilized. We must come together to solve the problem now, so that we can help those immigrant families who have been living in the country as if they are the lost sheep of our democracy, and eventually we will give the American taxpayers a break from spending billions of dollars on the broken immigration system every year.
Now let us remind ourselves that our call for immigration reform is a call of justice and equality for all. Our call for immigration reform is democratic. What we do about our immigration crisis this time will define the future of our nation for the generations to come. Now its up to us to decide. But Just like Thomas Jefferson, I believe all that that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
WHAT'S IN THE GOOD SAMARITAN ACT?
