To the editor:
I would like to express some of my personal opinions on immigration. Let’s go back to circa 1600 when Europeans claimed refugee status, i.e., due to religious persecution. Bear in mind refugees come in all sizes from good, bad and even criminals.
The Native Americans welcomed the refugees and taught them how to survive in their country. How were the Native Americans repaid? They lost their country.
Now fast forward to 2023, and here is history repeating itself? My liberal friends tell me, “this is a big country, we can accommodate everyone.” Now, the word is out that Maine is a big benevolent welfare state and ready to put out the welcome mat to everyone, including the overpopulated African nations.
Ask this question: Is what’s happening now a case of history and/or karma? To wit, is history repeating itself and or is this a case of karma for the Native Americans who welcomed everyone into their country, and are now living as second class citizens, stuck on reservations located in a country they once proudly owned? Perhaps they will witness their once great country become a banana republic!
