Immigration is a Human Right - Immigration is a Blessing - Freedom to flee from unjust plight - Is a pillar of all freedom
Immigration, is a human right,
Freedom of movement, should never be denied.
People should not have to fight,
For the right to work, live and play,
Where the jobs are today.
So why are they being vilified.
People and jobs move with the season
Working on the farms, construction and wherever they are needed.
I think that is a good reason,
For folks to migrate across borders that native people had forcibly ceeded.
To far away empires run by the greedy
Immigrants are vilified
So that they can be deported, abused and exploited.
Immigrants are vilified because they can't vote.
Borders are artificial
Created by government officials
Separating ancient nations
That existed before colonization.
Immigrants are not a threat to public order,
It is not a problem that they cross a national border.
To seek a job, a home or safety in another state or country.
They are not much different from you and me.
Woody Guthrie migrated from Oklahoma to California after the dust storms destroyed his home.
Police patrolled the California border and charged driver's money for crossing their border
We should not block free migration,
That only blocks true liberation.
We should be a truly free nation,
Let all make everywhere their destination.
Tear down the walls
Let the detention walls fall
This world belongs to all
Let all hear freedom's call
Allow freedom of movement
without friction from government
Immigration is a blessing,
Because immigrants grow our food,
Clean our homes, drive our trucks and pack our meat.
People should not be messing
With the people who must travel
To and fro to make a living.
