Congratulations to my Aunt, who has been studying very hard and will today take her exam to become a citizen of the United States. She lives on the Swiss/French border and has been going through the immigration process for the past few months.

It's people like her - immigrating legally - following the rules and doing things the way they should be done that make the United States a great place to live. It's also because of people like her and like my dad, who immigrated here legally and became a citizen back in the '70s, that I am utterly opposed to illegal immigrants and to people who break our laws and sneak across our borders "for a better life."

I love this video by Bill Whittle. It pretty much sums up exactly how I feel about the subject.


So congrats to Aunt Hala today on taking the next - and possibly hardest - step to becoming a citizen of the greatest nation on the face of the earth: The United States of America.
