Illegal Immigration Can Be Stopped
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
Obama Administration has been excellent at keeping a crisis of some
kind ongoing in the US while they continue to get their crash socialist
programs through the Congress and made into law before the American
people figure out what hit us. It’s called “misdirection.” Magicians
use it all the time. The reason Magicians and politicians use it - because it works!
warned some time ago that when the Obama people run out of crises and
the smoke clears a little and the American people begin to get a look
through the low hanging mist, there would be a lot of jaws dropping and
dragging the floor. Well, those "thumps" you've been hearing in the
past few weeks are the sound of those aforementioned jaws hitting the
floor. Yep, it has finally begun.
It is sometimes known as
“Buyer’s Remorse.” You know, it's that sinking feeling you get after
you get home from a shopping trip with something that you felt -- at the
time the salesman was pitching it to you -- that you absolutely had to
have. Now that you are home with that item, which is now ALL YOURS, you
realize, you really didn’t need it at all! In fact, you don’t even
want the “cussed thing”, but. - Now you OWN IT! THAT is "Buyer’s
That is what a lot of Obama supporters are feeling
these days. It is certainly not because we conservatives didn’t warn
them, we did, loud and clear and long, we warned them. Too late, they
discovered we actually DID know what we were talking about. But, as I
said, it is now too late.
Hopefully, enough of those misdirected
voters will clear their heads in time to help those of us already in the
trenches stop Obama’s attempt to grant amnesty to the nearly, what, 30
million (?), or so, illegal immigrants in the US. Yes, it is the
illegal immigration amnesty program now referred to as Immigration
Reform. It's nothing more than a new effort to get that Illegal
Immigrant Amnesty Program pushed through a socialist Congress.
will not be easy to stop immigration reform in the US Senate. In fact,
it will probably pass the Senate. But, we expect to stop it with an all
out effort in the US House of Representatives.
Is it time to
close the Golden Door and out lady Liberty’s Torch? I think it is… at
least for a time. We desperately need to get a handle on immigration.
US is being overrun with immigrants, legal and illegal. So many are
coming in that we can no longer keep up with them… and as a result, we
haven’t a clue who is here… and what their intentions are. Granted the
recession has slowed the invasion, for a time, but that won't last
forever and, soon, those numbers will begin climbing again.
Now we are in serious danger of losing our country.
this: Three immigrants babies are born for every baby born to a US
Citizen. See what I mean? See how the numbers are against us? Those
babies, born of immigrant parents, become an American citizen at the
moment of birth. In a few years, that same young American citizen can
sponsor other members of his, or her, family and bring them to live in
the US, as well.
Something has to be done… and quickly.
need to shut down legal immigration for a few years… a moratorium, if
you will, on immigration. That will allow us to catch our national
breath. And then we need to close, and seal, the southern, and
northern, borders of the US.
We must also understand that
terrorists find our wide-open southern border an open invitation to
enter through their enemy’s soft underbelly and deal death and
destruction to the citizens of this once great country. We know this
because we have caught at least a few of them.
We must ask the troubling question: "For those terrorists we caught… how many got through?" That should keep you up tonight!
country must be able to control its borders, or it is doomed. There is
no such thing as a nation without borders. That is a leftist pipe
dream. If a nation cannot, or will not, control its borders, it will
cease to exist as a nation.
Sorry to say, I do not see the will
in our elected officials, including the President, to take the nations
security seriously and close and seal those borders. See, those folks
stealing across that border look very much like democrat voters to the
democrat/socialists now running the US government.
tell me it can’t be done. DO NOT TRY to tell me we cannot close and
seal that border with Mexico. We have US troops patrolling the border
between Afghanistan and Pakistan and we have US troops patrolling the
border between North and South Korea. It is even rumored that we have
US troops overseeing the Syrian/Jordan border. But, we have no US
troops patrolling the borders between the US and Mexico and the US and
Canada. Does that make any sort of sense to you? Because it, sure as
heck, does not make sense to me!
Sealing the border(s) can be
done. But, one thing is missing. The political will to do it. This is
another point at which “the governed” and “the governors” differ in the
US. Again, I fear the explanation is simply – votes for the
Democrat/Socialists and a cheap labor pool for the GOP.
convinced the American people would like to preserve their identity and
their national security. Unfortunately, our legislators seem interested
only in securing more and more power for themselves… and if that means
allowing illegal, and legal, immigrants into this country in hopes of
persuading them to align themselves with one, or both, of our political
parties, then so be it. (And, as noted above, there, in a nutshell, is
When the 2016 political campaigns swing into high
gear, in a few months, I’d like to see this problem front and center on
the list of things the candidates need to address and actually do
something about! I doubt it will be on that list, but if we push long
enough, and loud enough, we will, at some point, get their attention.
If we don’t speak up, if we don’t rattle their cages, we are going to be
steam-rolled by the democrat/socialist juggernaut.
Look. Until we are ready to colonize the stars we are going to have to make a home for ourselves here… on THIS
planet. As in 15th, and 16th, century Europe, many of us are ready to
pull out and go establish ourselves another society. We haven’t the
means, yet. But in the future we will, and the stars will really be our
homes. But, ‘til then, we must do everything in our power to secure the
place on this planet we call home. We can begin by sealing our borders -
especially the southern border with Mexico.
