A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
The fact is, the Dems want the votes of the illegal aliens and the Republicans want the cheap labor. That be over simplification, but it sure does get at the truth of the matter.
Back last summer we warned this would happen. Now, I’m just an Ole Country Boy, down here in the swamps of North Carolina, and I saw it coming, even then. You see, the Obama Regime and the socialist Congress have been using the old magician’s trick of misdirection to attempt to move unsavory legislation through the congress and signed into law before you and I figure out what hit us. At least SOME Americans have awakened to their underhanded methods are crying “foul!” I’m just one of them.
The tragedy in Haiti plays right into the Obama Regime’s hands! They will certainly use it to get their so-called immigration reform moved through the House and Senate. Never fear. They will never let a good tragedy, or crisis, go to waste. In the next few weeks we will see shiploads of Haitians landing on America’s shores. Don’t believe it. Just watch. It won’t be long
Time to get the e-mail humming to your Senators again. Phone calls work well, too. Faxes are also important. Even a telegram to your senator’s office would be helpful.
Many conservatives warned that it was premature to declare the death of the Immigration Bill, the last time it was defeated in the Senate. And sure enough, here it comes again. Camouflaged, but essentially the same thing. The folks on the left never quit. We have no choice but to man the barricades once again.
Isn’t there something very sad (and very telling) when the people of a country have to “force” their own government to respond to the wishes of their people? Isn’t it telling as to how far we have traveled down the road toward “totalitarian government”? Have we learned anything??? I doubt it!
You may remember back last summer, President Obama played host for a White House meeting to re-launch the legislative process for “comprehensive” immigration reform. Then, a few days afterwards, several big city police chiefs went public and urged Congress to bring illegal immigrants “out from the shadows.” The Obama Regime is about to ram the New Amnesty Bill – AKA Immigration Reform Bill, right through Congress and sign it into law. And the Mainstream Media, in league with The Obama Legions, will be, as usual, playing along with Obama in an attempt to keep us distracted with all the many and varied crises sucking up all the ink from their publications and all the air time from their broadcasts. (See Earthquake tragedy in Haiti)
At least the American electorate has it’s priorities straight. Americans STILL want the border closed and sealed FIRST! It is common sense to stop the leak before bailing. Once the border is closed and sealed then taking care of those aliens here illegally can begin and mass deportations can begin. Like a leaky faucet, you cannot fix it until the water is turned off. Immigration cannot be fixed until the border is closed and sealed and the flow of illegals across it is stopped.
Americans ARE STILL ANGRY with the illegal alien mess and the numerous attempts by our government to offer them amnesty, which would, in time, offer them citizenship. But, as the pollsters learned when doing their survey, Americans are not mad at the illegal aliens. No! They/we are mad at our government for allowing this to happen in the first place!
All we expect of any who want to immigrate to America is – do it the RIGHT WAY. Do it legally and we will welcome an immigrant with open arms. Do it illegally and we want that illegal alien caught and deported forthwith! Keep in mind also; we speak English in the USA. Granted it is our own brand of English, but it is OUR language. The first step in assimilating into our society is to learn and speak our language. Believe me, we DO find it insulting when no effort is made to speak our language and WE are FORCED to speak the language of the immigrant, or illegal alien (YES, there is a difference between an immigrant and an illegal alien. There is no such thing as an illegal immigrant even if the Mainstream Media insists on using the term!)
America’s biggest problem with illegal immigration is not with those who illegally break into our country and help to bleed it dry, but with our government which refuses to uphold the laws already on the books.
Americans must ask themselves what we are going to do with a government that refuses to uphold/enforce the nation’s laws? Well, let me ask you - suppose you had a business and an employee consistently refused to follow the rules of the workplace. What would you do to that employee? See? The answer is simple. The ONLY way we are ever going to get relief from this problem is to clean the house in Washington. We have that opportunity coming up this November in the Mid-Term Election. The coming election is shaping up to be the most important election in the history of the country. It may well decide whether we remain a representative republic or become a socialist/communist dictatorship. It is just that stark! That is why the Obama Regime, and the socialist congress, will be making an all out push for so-called immigration reform between now and November. They cannot take the risk of losing seats in the House and Senate in November BEFORE they pass the “New Amnesty Bill.” So, get ready for a full-court press on the New Amnesty Bill otherwise known as Immigration Reform.
Until we can change the make-up of the Congress and the White House we are stuck standing on the sidelines observing the largest land invasion and take-over of a country in the history of the world.
Seems to me we have to do three things this year. First we must stop ObamaCare. Then we must stop the New Amnesty Bill/Immigration Reform and then we, absolutely, MUST PURGE our government of the Socialists who over abundantly populate it now.
We have our work cut out for us. “We The People” must take our country back and we must do it this year!
