One of the weak points of Security and Defenses is the inability to separate. And when separated to remain separated. With much joinings of and to many differences, the attempt to Secure and Defend is weak. Sure, every Country represents a certain 'idea', but to neglect to remember what and who are being Secured and Defended is to lose focus on what the Country represents. The elders would be better guideposts as to what to Secure and Defend. To 'leave' the Securing and Defending to others, Government included, is entrusting to strangers their Security and Defenses. These 'strangers', Government included, can accomodate for your trusts when you surrender the Elders' Security and Defenses into their hands and authorities. And don't forget that many top position holders 'delegate' responsibilties to other 'strangers'. Paychecks seem to be only 'trust' that these persons can place upon one another. In other words, if you are employed and within certain departments, that you are trustworthy enough to have other lives and even 'life or death' responsibilities and influence in your authority. It is based upon the moral/trust system. To uphold Law is more trustworthy than upholding 'ideas' or 'agendas'. Law has already been established and maintained and refined up to current time in Every Country. Going contrary to the Established ways and going against established Law upkeeping, is internal uprising against the foundations of how the Country survived up until present. The elders are part of that time when they were keeping and upholding the Established ways and Laws of their citizened Country. There are many adult men and women who are actively employed who are contrary to the Established ways and Laws. To be a U.S citizen means that you have a civil duty and work to maintain U.S Established ways and Laws. You maintain the traditions of the fathers and work to keep the heritage of the Country alive and 'with vision'. Proverbs 29:18 "Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he." The 'vision' the Founding Fathers entrusted to be kept and maintained was the continuation of the ways they had agreed upon as 'good to be living within'. They themselves kept and lived in their own code of rights, The U.S Constitution, which as to Secure and Defend family and home. There was no immigration air plane rides back then. Immigration laws came after. To be concerned with immigration rigts and Laws, the established immigration Laws, you would need to know what 'the ratified' agreement of those U.S citizens, who signed it into the 'rights' within The U.S, wanted to be kept and maintained.

The act created a uniform rule of naturalization and a residency requirement for new citizenship applicants. The law required immigrants to live in the United States for two years and their respective state of residence for one year prior to applying for citizenship. 1819 Congress enacted the first significant federal legislation relating specifically to immigration.
