Pardon the Bird

Yes, Mr. President, it is kind to pardon the turkey!
It would even be kinder to pardon the immigrant...
After all, he chose America because he loves it
And admires it!
He trusts the American people, since he wishes
To live among them!
He is confident that the rules in America are
The best, and the most trustworthy!
He is seeking refuge in America,
Because it represents his Dreamworld!
Most immigrants are educated, and talented.
They are searching for a society who can
Appreciate their merits!
Isn't it more important to pardon the lost
People of the Earth?
The turkey will be eaten sooner or later,
But Human Beings have the right to be saved...
