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 Americas borders.
Says Goldberg, I wanted to poke fun at the issue in a lighthearted way instead of taking sides on it. I still dont really know where I stand on the issue.
Still, with lyrics like: With Amnesty, we will see/ Hospitals in bankruptcy/ Medicare, nothing there/ Dont drink the water/ Immigration all across the nation/ Give us all your tired and your poor, the satirical songsters sentiments are clear.
Goldberg laments, Our nations 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 doesnt blame immigrants for wanting to enter the States.
He adds, You cant fault people for trying to live in America. Who wouldnt want to live here? Were a great nation.
