The Reason Rolson St Louis Calls for Immigration Reform

Updated: May 12, 2021

Though there are millions of millions of Americans supporting our call for immigration reform, there are yet a group of people who stand in the opposition side. In this post, I explain why I call for immigration reform. And I hope everyone will come together in unity to support the Good Samaritan Act, which will help solve the immigration crisis that our nation has been dealing with for many decades.



In the year of 2005, in the day of president George W. Bush, the 43rd president of the United States, the construction industry boomed in South Florida. South Florida was being rebuilt, so the nation needed help in the construction industry. I accepted an opportunity in the industry working as a steel worker.


During my time in construction, I have witnessed the hard work that immigrants have contributed to make the nation what she is today, I also had the opportunity to work with immigrants for different countries. I talked and listened to them. They have told me a lot of things. They have told me about the struggles they had faced in their homeland and the reasons they come to United states of America. And I also shared with them the struggles I had faced in my land.




They have also told me about the fear and the oppression they are facing in the United States.


They told me about their dreams and hopes. They told me that the United States is the only place that make life seem possible for them.


“Our dreams and hopes feel alive in the United States. But we are afraid we might not be able to live here. We feel terrified and oppressed sometimes.”



After witnessing the labor of the immigrants and listening to their hopes and dreams, it was impossible for me to ignore their call for justice. That is why one of the reasons I call for immigration reform. Yes, we are proud to say that we are a nation of immigrants. Now it is time to show it in deed. #JesusChrist
