Voiceover

My point is, you should not be immigrating here. Stay in your country and us. 
Hate us over there.  
Yeah. 
Yeah. 
And they can't hide those little Mexican flags at these governments sponsored rallies. That makes me want to throw up.  
Hey, ____. I'm Lawrence. I'm an immigrant, I'm a citizen and I'm a veteran. I served in the US Air Force and fought for you, your family and people I don't even know. I risked my life for a free and inclusive country.  
I'm a veteran of the United States Navy and I also come from an immigrant family. So before you go out telling people that they need to go back to where they come from, remember, this is where they come from. This is their land, this is our land, this is where we stand, united as one. 
Hey, ___, my name is Mike H. and I'm a U.S. Army Veteran. Some of my friends and I fought for this country, many of which are immigrants themselves. Some didn't make it back while in pursuit of the American dream.  
Prove to you that immigrants are worthy of this country... 
Hey, Joe, @JustME16, my name's Travis, I'm a United States Marine Corps veteran and you and I have something in common. We both love this country.
