Some say immigrants are here for fun,

Some say to steal jobs,

Some say immigrants want attention,

Some say immigrants are useless,

Some say immigrants aren’t people,

Some say, get out!

Some say immigrants deserve no rights,

The truth is immigrants sacrifice everything to come here,

The truth is immigrants work hard,

Immigrants want futures,

Immigrants have dreams,

Immigrants have feelings,

Immigrants deserve the same rights as you,

Immigrants go through everyday hearing hateful things about them,


So why can’t we all be the same?

Why can’t we stop all racism?

Why don’t we help?

Why don’t we care?

What has happened to you and me working together as one?

Is this who we want to be?
