America's Hidden Shame: How Immigrants Are Exploited for Your Vacation Fund

In the eyes of many, America is a land of opportunity, a place where hard work leads to success and prosperity. But for those of us on the fringes, the reality is starkly different. We see a system that favors some Americans, allowing them to work well past retirement age while others are offered meager payments to retire at 65, expected to live out their days in modesty while dreaming of vacations they'll likely never take.

It's a bitter pill to swallow, knowing that healthy individuals, without any disabilities, can continue to reap the rewards of their labor while others are left to scrape by on the scraps of a broken system. It's a stark reminder that inequality runs deep in the veins of this country, a truth that many refuse to acknowledge or address.

And then there's the darker side of the coin—the modern-day slavery that lurks beneath the surface. Immigrants, often brought into this country under the guise of work and opportunity, find themselves trapped in a cycle of exploitation. Denied basic rights and treated as disposable commodities, they toil away so that citizens can enjoy their free monthly payments and lavish vacations.

It's a haunting parallel to the days of old, when slave owners profited off the backs of those they deemed inferior. The same hatred and resentment that fueled slave owners' contempt for their slaves now simmers in the hearts of citizens who blame immigrants for their perceived loss of opportunities and resources.

As I stand witness to this injustice, I can't help but question God's role in all of this. From my understanding of scriptures and teachings, God commands us to treat the stranger as we would our fellow citizens, to show compassion and kindness to those in need. Yet here we are, living in a world where immigrants are dehumanized and exploited for the benefit of others.

Where is the just and compassionate God in all of this? Why has He allowed the rule of His world to be delegated to the wicked instead of ruling Himself? These questions weigh heavily on my heart as I struggle to reconcile my faith with the harsh realities of the world around me.

I find myself praying, not just for myself but for all those who suffer under the yoke of injustice. I pray for a world where equality isn't just a lofty ideal but a tangible reality. I pray for leaders who will uphold the principles of fairness and justice for all, regardless of race, nationality, or social status.

But until that day comes, we are left to wrestle with the contradictions of our society, with the knowledge that the American dream is not equally accessible to all. We are left to navigate a world where some thrive while others barely survive, where immigrants are scapegoated and exploited, and where the promise of a just and compassionate God feels distant and elusive.

In the midst of this darkness, I hold on to the belief that change is possible. I cling to the hope that God's justice will prevail, that He sees the suffering of His people and will intervene on their behalf. And until that day comes, I will continue to speak out against injustice, to advocate for the rights of the marginalized, and to pray for a world where all God's children are treated with dignity and respect.
