Our nation, the United States of America, is known around the world as “the land of the free and the home of the brave” whose citizens love liberty, cherish freedom, and are willing to pay the price for these precious possessions. So, people from all over the world desire to come here.
The freedom we cherish is not a mere dream; it is a constitutional guarantee. In the Bill of Rights, adopted as the first 10 amendments to the constitution on Dec. 15, 1791, freedom is defined in clear and concise language.
The first freedom to be defined is the freedom of religion: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”
The second freedom to be defined is the freedom of speech and the press: “Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press.”
