Around the Sonnets: Taxation, Representation, and Immigration

By CL * Other CL Posts

My will's as effective as Kyle Orton
Green Card: taxes, no vote, long as I live.
Like DC with Eleanor Holmes Norton:
My voice unheard, no representative.

But that's not what I'm here to talk about
A citizen, if I wanted to be
You're keeping all the foreign talent out
It just takes five, I've been here twenty-three.

A common thread runs through our history
Railroads, software, labor, innovation
To keep this going we need H-1Bs
America, built on immigration.

Letting in the talent was always how
You became the best, please don't stop it now.
