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
