A Modest Proposal
“A way to rid ourselves of foreigners”
This essay was written by, Sanel, a foreigner living in America for 8 years. The following “American Speaker” is based on Sanel’s personal view on Americans, and his personal belief on how Americans view foreigners.
Foreigners are ruining our country. They take up our space, buy our houses, attend our schools, and drive on our already busy roads. They are different from us and do things we aren’t used to.

Our kids can proudly say “We live in a foreigner-free America!” They will know that we didn’t ever need foreigners, nor do we...
