For quite some time, immigrants have been drawn to American freedoms in hopes of building a better life for themselves. It takes a lot for a person to legally come here with nothing but the clothes on their back. People typically do this in hopes of living out the “American Dream.”
Usually, that dream does not happen in the span of several months. It typically takes some time for hard-working individuals to become successful and make that a reality.
The same goes for both immigrants and native-born citizens. Some people think it comes easy for Americans, but we also have to work hard for the dream.
But when you come here not only expecting handouts but to mandate that things happen at the snap of your fingers, well that is a different story. If you don’t want to be a productive member of society then don’t expect to live off the dime of those who do.
Some Venezuelan migrants have traveled thousands of miles in hopes of escaping their third-world country and subsequently getting a better life here in the United States. But they never imagined that the First World was not so different from the Third World after all. Well, at least in some progressive-run cities.
the Chicago Tribune he could not take it anymore as he, his wife, and stepdaughter spent five months sleeping in a police precinct as well as a crowded city shelter.
“The American Dream doesn’t exist anymore,” Castejon told the outlet prior to their departure. “There’s nothing here for us … We just want to be home.”
Chicago has seen an
of about 20,000 migrants recently and has already spent at least $250 million on the issue.
He added, “If we’re going to be sleeping in the streets here, we’d rather be sleeping in the streets over there.”
Castejon eventually turned to Catholic Charities to obtain plane tickets for his family to travel to Texas. From there, they hope to find a way back home to Venezuela.
“How many more months of living in the streets will it take? No, no more. It’s better that I leave,” he said. “At least I have my mother back home."
to the New York Post, Castejon and his family were among many migrants who have decided to leave Chicago as the weather has grown colder in recent weeks.
“We didn’t know things would be this hard,” Castejon said. “I thought the process was faster.”
All I have to say is, don’t let the door hit you on your way out. Many “migrants” have not only crashed the party but ate all the food for free. And when it did not meet their highest of expectations, they complained.
Didn’t anyone tell him that nothing in life is free? You don’t just get a better life because that's what you hear on social media. Many people who immigrated here had to overcome adversity and work their tailbones off before living the “American Dream.”
It is true that the American Dream is more challenging today than it once was. But the country is still full of entrepreneurs who made that happen and contributed greatly to our economy.
That said, it is also true that if you do want to live out the American dream, the last place you want to do that is in a place controlled by a bunch of progressives. Because only progress can make the first world even worse than the third world.
Hopefully, he will spread the word upon his return home to his mommy.
