A brief summary of the status of US Immigration Laws and the bright future of this area of law in accordance with the teachings of Bahá’u’lláh.
The ever-escalating draconian US Immigration Laws call humanity to conscientiously look within inwardly, to reevaluate our own individual moral values as to what extent we are willing to forgo decency, and at what price. The statistics of the past several years demonstrate society’s apathy and laxity to these ever-increasing crises facing humanity. The numbness to the devastating effects on society as a whole continues. It is time for us to pause and revisit some of the basics that brought us all to this point in our history. We will reflect on our trajectory into the future, but we must also reflect on our past to realize why and how we reached this unfortunate plight. The USA is a land of immigrants.Considering the rich diversity of the USA, it has become the land of the free and the brave to many of its newest citizens. Many immigrants came to the USA fleeing religious persecution and searching for a brighter future. There was not much of an immigration process in place, and yet we now have the USA that we all live in and call home. We need to reflect as to why the immigration process is becoming so difficult now, to the extent that the USA is closing its borders to countless immigrants. Some of these immigrants are fleeing their homeland for their very lives, and other immigrants have special skills and expertise that are very valuable to advance the interests of the USA.
