Migrating to America known as the land of the free
Little did they know it was nothing they thought it would be.

Hundreds of men have left their kids and wives
To provide them with an honorable life.

They hopped in a train for a ride
For days they prayed not to be the next one to die.

They can’t get a job for their illegal names
Although when America is low on jobs they would be the first ones to be blamed.

Why do you hate this man at all?
They have only held courage as they stand tall.

Would you have traveled the next county or two?
To realize nothing was to be true.

I see their eyes full of tears    
Walking in the dark as they disappear
And I ask Uncle Sam “why can’t America help them here?"
