Democrats undermine the special-ness of becoming an American

By: Lloyd Marcus

Delia, age 13, called Rush Limbaugh’s radio show seeking information for a school assignment.  She had to debate whether or not it should be easier for immigrants to become U.S. citizens.  Delia asked Rush his thoughts on the topic.

Here’s a small excerpt of Rush’s brilliant answer.

In order to preserve this country, it ought to be a very specific task for somebody, not a citizen, to become one.  If they come here via legal immigration, they do have to take a test.  And those who endeavor to become citizens and pass the test, it’s one of the most proud days of their lives.  If you’ve ever been to a naturalization ceremony or ever seen one televised, it’s one of the proudest days of their lives, to become, quote, unquote, an American.

I can personally testify to the truth of this statement in Rush’s answer: “it’s one of the proudest days of their lives, to become, quote, unquote, an American.”

For years, I sang my original song, “Celebrate America,” at monthly naturalization ceremonies in Maryland.  Every ceremony had a thousand people or more – applicants, families, and friends.  I enjoyed watching the excitement of the audience from my seat with dignitaries on stage behind the podium.
