Brownsville, Texas: Catpaigning here today in Brownsville, near the U.S.-Mexican border, Manx Party VP candidate Benny announced that the Douglas-Benny administration will take bold new steps to speed-up the legal immigration process.
A spokesperson for the Douglas-Benny ticket spoke at a rally. “One reason we have a big problem with illegal immigration is that many who desire to come to the U.S. are faced with interminably long waits and unbearable expenses to legally enter our country.
We are a nation of immigrants. At the turn of the century, many Western and Eastern Europeans made long sea journeys under bad conditions to come here. But once here, they were processed in an expeditious manner. That is no longer the case, and it has led to our current situation, where Mexican citizens risk life and limb because the requirements to enter the U.S. legally are too complex, too costly, and take an inordinate amount of time.
Douglas and Benny will see to it that the words on our Statue of Liberty, ‘Give us your tired, your poor and those longing to be free’, no longer end with an asterisk— an asterisk that for too long has asked new immigrants to wait too long and pay too much.”
The Douglas-Benny ticket is poised for victory in Texas on March 4th.
