In this video, Dave describes his song, Don’t Drink the Water.
It’s easy to view the issue of immigration from an American, nationalist perspective. When we approach it from a universal standpoint and view it cast in the light of American history, it’s almost impossible to see it as cut and dried. It is a very complex issue that I don’t fully understand. I think immigrants are what has made this country so great, while at the same time their illegal presence and lack of taxation is a huge problem.
Either way, I have to constantly remind myself that we were once immigrants here, and the white and blue of our flag is stained with a lot of red.
