What if there was no America to come to?

(Reflections on the immigration bans issued by the new Trump administration)

What if there was no America to come to

When your hopes and dreams were crushed by the tyranny you live under?

What if there was no America to come to

When your freedoms were gone and you barely made that last flight out?

What if there was no America to come to

When the bombs, bullets and civil strife were snuffing out your lives?

What if there was no America to come to

When you needed the hope of open markets, financial access, and entrepreneurship?

What if there was no America to come to

With all its diversity, history and might?

What if there was no America to come to?

maybe there’s not…
