Singing Lawyer Writes Pop Song About Immigration

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A singing lawyer in Nashville, Tennessee, is laying down the law in his new pop tune about immigration.

Songwriter Jesse Goldberg was inspired to write his song, “Immigration,” to the tune of the French song, “Alouette,” after realizing how divided lawmakers and voters are when it comes to America’s borders.

Says Goldberg, “I wanted to poke fun at the issue in a lighthearted way instead of taking sides on it. I still don’t really know where I stand on the issue.”

Still, with lyrics like: With Amnesty, we will see/ Hospitals in bankruptcy/ Medicare, nothing there/ Don’t drink the water/ Immigration all across the nation/ Give us all your tired and your poor, the satirical songster’s sentiments are clear.

Goldberg laments, “Our nation’s health system is already unstable and overcrowded, and immigration is going to have an even bigger impact on that. With more people in America, medical services will continue to get worse.”

But at the end of the day, Goldberg doesn’t blame immigrants for wanting to enter the States.

He adds, “You can’t fault people for trying to live in America. Who wouldn’t want to live here? We’re a great nation.”
