A video has emerged in which an immigrant who recently got her United States citizenship could be seen broken down in tears as she expressed appreciation for being in the North American country.
The unidentified lady said she told her father to move them to the United States because of the insecurity going in her country.
Noting that there are drug cartels in her country, she said the cops do not show up when called to a crime scene, adding that she feels safe in the United States.
She said: "I became a US citizen a month ago, and I'm so grateful to be in this country. I tell my dad almost every day to bring me and my family to America. You know, over there in my country, there are so many horrific things going on, and with the drug cartel there is no security.
"You call the cops, they don't show up at all."
The lady said people have freedom to feel safe in the United States. She said because one cop made a mistake in the US doesn't mean all cops are bad.
She said it's sad how people used Black Lives Matter movement to spread hate, division and chaos in the US.
In other news, Janis Shinwari, an immigrant who worked as an interpreter for the US military for nearly a decade can finally brag that he is officially a citizen of the country.
The Afghan national operated in dangerous areas of his homeland and ended up saving the lives of five soldiers who came from America.
“During his service, he saved the lives of five American soldiers. That is not something many people can say,” Ken Cuccinelli, acting director of Citizenship and Immigration Services praised the interpreter.
