“DEEP WATER”

For many people, the place that comes to mind when hearing the word “immigration” is America. But many wonder, just what kind of place America is. America is an Idea that we call “Democracy”, and we see what happens when we let people say whatever they want, go wherever they want, and do whatever they want. The results aren't always pretty but it certainly is a beautiful idea.
