  • Restricitng immigration won't solve this country's problems
    The refugees are only our leaders scapegoats
    Bigoted politicians claim that immigration is unemployment's source
    So the INS are given unending power to enforce
    The restrictions regulated by immigrants descendants
    Who project open border policies as national resentments
    Unwilling to provide the same opportunities they've been given
    To desperate refugees whose passage has been forbidden
    By a government who's often reponsible for their countries situation
    But they just intensify the suffering by restricting immigration
    Denying immigrants from crossing a line
    They're closing the borders like they've closed their minds
    Regardless of citizenship we're all the same
    No human is illegal like governments claim
    Exploiting foreign markets with capitalisms principles
    NAFTA was created to benefit the multinationals
    Big business cuts their expenses with their sweatshop wage
    Keeping foreign labor in an economical cage
    They've created the incentive to ship the jobs out of this country
    Making Americans more receptive to minimum wage and bigotry
    The government maintains approval when their fault remains concealed
    They'll just find another scapegoat after they pass the anti-immigration bill
    Denying immigrants from crossing a line
    They're closing the borders like they've closed their minds
    Regardless of citizenship we're all the same
    No human is illegal like the governments claim
    Creating xenophobia is another tactic in which our leaders have managed
    To redirect blame to someone other than themselves or big business
    The media lap up the reports of increasing poverty, unemployment, welfare and
    Government aid supposedly caused by refugees while largely ignoring the
    Countless reports of rapes, beating, and general harassment by the
    INS and US border patrols Not to mention American servicemen
    Actually crossing the Mexican border to rape women or New York police
    Officers gang raping a Haitian immigrant with a plunger These atrocities
    Occur because xenophobia has instilled the thinking that refugees are
    Problems and not people...Xenophobia kills
    Patriotism plants the seeds of ignorance and hate
    Destroying the people and all compassion to protect the state
    Every person is entitled to live, no human should be banned
    It only benefits the wealthy to own a piece of land
    It only divides the people by the borders, by the countries
    It's only another obstacle blocking any chance of equality
    We've got to smash their walls our efforts must persist
    We've got to wake the people up to see what they've dismissed
    People are not expendable, government is
    People are not expendable, government is
    People are not expendable, government is
    People are not expendable, government is
