A couple letters

Congresswoman Pelosi,

I just saw a news broadcast in which you made the following comment, "...the American people are very wise on this, and their wisdom will be reflected in the actions of Congress."

I believe you were referring to the fact that over 60% of the American people feel we were wrong to take military action in Iraq, and that 63% of us want a timetable for the withdrawal of our troops from Iraq.

I find it amazing that you support the views of only 60% of the American people on this issue, yet an overwhelming 80% of the American people do not want amnesty for illegal aliens and the same number want our current immigration laws enforced and our border secured. Yet apparently the American people are not wise enough on this particular issue for you to pay attention to what we want.

Senator Obama,

Recently you made some comments regarding the point system provision in S 1348. You stated that it "constitutes at minimum a radical experiment in social engineering and a departure from our tradition of having family and employers invite immigrants to come."

Sir, I do not know if you are deliberately trying to mislead the people of this country concerning the history of immigration, or if you are just unaware of the facts on the issue. Whatever the case may be, it was an asinine statement to make from someone running for the office of President of the United States.

If you look back through every piece of legislation enacted regarding immigration to the United States, you will find that, prior to 1965, they all tried to establish quotas or even exclude certain nationalities or groups of people from immigrating to this country.

The very first immigration law passed in this country was the United States Naturalization Law of March 26, 1790 (1 Stat. 103). This law limited naturalization to aliens who were "free white persons", which left out indentured servants, slaves, and free African-Americans. It also limited naturalization to persons of good moral character.

In 1795 the Naturalization Act of 1790 was repealed and replaced by the Naturalization Act of January 19, 1795 (1 Stat. 414). Some of the changes this Act made were that the period of residence was increased from two to five years in the country and two years in the state of residence. The other major change was that, as well as taking an oath to support the Constitution, the immigrant had to renounce his former sovereign. This Act also reaffirmed that citizenship was for "whites" only.

On July 9, 1868, the 14th Amendment to the Constitution was ratified. It was part of the Reconstruction Amendments passed after the Civil War. It's goal was to provide citizenship for the children of freed slaves, thereby giving them the same rights as previously held by whites only.

On May 19, 1921, Congress passed the Emergency Quota Act (ch. 8, 42 Stat. 5), otherwise known as the Johnson Quota Act. This limited the number of immigrants who could be admitted from any country to 2% of the number of persons from that country who were already residing within the United States according to the 1910 census.

The Immigration Act of 1924 was next to be passed. Its goal was to limit the number of immigrants coming from southern and eastern Europe. It also excluded East Asians and Asian Indians from immigrating entirely.

In 1952 Congress passed the McCarran-Walter Act, otherwise known as the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952. It codified, under title 8 of the U.S. Code, all immigration laws. It set all requirements for citizenship and penalties for illegal immigration and the hiring of illegal immigrants. Eventually, the INA established a preference system which selected which ethnic groups were desirable immigrants and placed great importance on labor qualifications.

As you can see, all these immigration laws were, as you state, "...a radical experiment in social engineering..." Our immigration laws were written to ensure that the American people were always to be a majority of the populace. The goal was to ensure that no immigrant group ever obtained majority status and disrupt the social fabric of our culture.

Ever since, your esteemed colleague, Senator Kennedy assisted in opening the Pandora's box of immigration without quotas the American people have suffered due to the effects of illegal aliens. Now we are asked to forgive and forget one more time.

I am sorry sir, but the American people, not the citizens of Mexico or racist groups such as the National Council of La Raza, are the people whom you serve. We declare with an overwhelming voice that we do not want an amnesty and we want our current laws enforced.

A week to save our country

A Week to Save Our Country
Neal Ross
May 19, 2007

Last week, members of the U.S. Senate held a news conference and announced that they had worked towards a compromise and finally had made a deal concerning immigration reform. The usual members of pro immigration lobby were in presence, Senators Kennedy, McCain, Feinstein, and of course their mouthpiece Senator Harry Reid of Nevada.

Although the proposed legislation has the backing of the President, it still has a long uphill battle before it becomes law. It must make it through the House, which is highly unlikely. House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi has already stated that without 70 Republican votes there will be no immigration reform legislation passed by the House. So this law has a tough road ahead, irregardless, the point is that these Senators, who have ignored illegal immigration for so long, and who have now been pushed into a corner by the publics outrage about the growing numbers and affects of illegal aliens in this country, would make this deal and call it progress. This bill, if it ever becomes law would mean the death of the United States as we know it.

The Senate Majority Leader has already said he hopes for a vote by Memorial Day. The legislation is not even finalized and promises to be at least as long as S. 2611, last years failed attempt at immigration reform. That bill was 700 plus pages. This bill may end up being one thousand pages. How are our Senators to be expected to read a monstrosity that big in under a week?

I am reminded of something James Madison once said, "It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood."

For months now there has been an almost subliminal attempt to prime the American people so that they might accept this bill when it finally came out. Various groups, chief among them the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, Cardinal Roger Mahony, have been trying to play up to our sympathies by stating that this is a matter of compassion. We are being told we should open our arms to the poor of the world and embrace them into our country and communities.
At the same time that Cardinal Mahony has been making these aliens out to be innocent victims, the 2008 Presidential race has been running full swing. Two GOP debates have taken place, and they have been formatted so as not to allow candidates sufficient time to address any issue in depth. This hurts candidates, like Tom Tancredo, who understand the devastating effects of illegal immigration upon our country.

So on the one hand we are being fed feel good gobbly-gook by the Cardinal from Los Angeles, and on the other we are being denied an opposing point of view from people who would rebuke the Cardinal.

As Cardinal Mahony said, we should feel compassion for these illegal aliens. Compassion and charity are commendable features, however they are personal features that each individual should demonstrate due to their beliefs and moral character. To mandate it of the people takes away the blessings and rewards of doing so of your own free will. The same goes for this immigration reform.

This compromise that was reached by our Senators has yet to even be written, and they are expecting a vote on it by next week. That is hardly sufficient time to examine it closely for flaws, and more importantly for its fiscal impact. This amnesty, and make no mistake about it, that is exactly what it is, has been estimated to cost the U.S. taxpayers trillions of dollars to implement.

Although the American people are divided on what exactly to do about illegal aliens, an overwhelming number, almost 80%, are against amnesty. That means we would be forced, not only to accept something we are against, but to pay for it as well with our tax dollars. Thomas Jefferson said, “To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.” Yet that is exactly what is happening.

In 1970 there were 203 million people in this country and we had reached what is called below replacement fertility. That means that American women were having less than 2.3 children per family. To sustain population growth, for each family there must be enough children born to replace both parents as they die off and add at least one more child as well. Without that fertility rate, the population either stabilizes or decreases.

By the year 2000 the population of Americans had reached about 220 million, but due to immigration the actual number of people in this country was 240 million. By the year 2050, as the baby boomers and some of their children begin to pass away, the population of Americans will begin to decrease from a high of around 250 million in the year 2020, to around 236 million in the year 2050. However the total U.S. population, if we continue with our current path of legal and illegal immigration will be around 420 million. These numbers are directly taken from the U.S. Census Bureau’s mid range projections which were calculated in 2002.

Those statistics show that we are committing cultural suicide in our efforts to show compassion upon the poor of the world. We are slowly but surely giving our country away to foreign born immigrants.

The focus of illegal immigration and the reform of our immigration system has been mostly upon Mexico. That is not to say that there are not illegal immigrants in our country from all over the world, there are. However the focus has been on Mexico. Why else would President Bush speak to the people of Mexico on a recent trip and promise to pass immigration reform legislation? That is where our focus lies, whether it is justified or not. Face it, according to statistics recently released by the U.S. Census Bureau, the Hispanic population in America grew by 3.6 percent, three times higher than the total population.

What about the rest of the world? Are there not other countries that have poor people needing our compassion as well? There are 4.6 billion people in the world who are even more impoverished than the people of Mexico. At our current rate of taking in about one million immigrants from poor impoverished countries we will have little effect on easing the poverty of the world. Immigration cannot solve the worlds problems with poverty because each year as we take in one million of the poor, these countries add another 80 million to their population by new births. It is exponentially impossible to ease the burden upon these countries by immigration. Therefore compassion is a futile excuse for our immigration policy and any talk of reforming it.

The fact of the matter is this, our elected officials have been negligent, almost criminally so, in their refusal to enforce the immigration laws and policies we already have in place. The American people have been paying the price for their failure and have finally held them to task for their failures. Now in an effort to make it look like they are doing something, they offer us this ‘Grand Compromise’ and expect us to buy it hook, line and sinker.

We were told something very similar in 1986, when President Reagan passed the Immigration Reform and Control Act, IRCA. One of the authors of this current legislation, Senator Edward Kennedy, made the following comment about IRCA, "Out of deference to the critics, I want to comment on...what the bill will not do. First, our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually. Under the proposed bill, the present level of immigration remains substantially the same..” He is hoping that we will not remember. He is hoping that we will accept the proposal for the death of our country that he and his comrades have come up with.

It is up to each and every one of us to make sure that this compromise does not become law. We need to call our elected officials, day in and day out, for the next week, until their phone lines melt from the volume of calls. We need to make our voices heard with a resounding NO in regards to this compromise which is a slap in the face to every American in this country. If we don’t succeed in stopping this, our country is doomed. It’s your choice. I have called twice this morning and am going to call again and again until they hear me loud and clear. How about you?

Memorial Day

Memorial Day is just around the corner. For many Americans the day is nothing more than the beginning of the summer season, a time for barbecues and trips to the lake. For those of us who truly love our country it is a time of thanks for the ultimate sacrifice untold thousands of people made in the defense of their country.

The state of affairs in our country today makes me wonder, were those deaths in vain? Has our country strayed so far from the principles upon which it was founded that those who died in its defense would no longer recognize it?

We have a government that seems to have forgotten that we are the employers and they are there to serve We the people, not the other way around. Our voices are ignored and the best interests of our country are sold down the drain to multinational corporations and special interests.

So, on this Memorial Day, I would like to ask that each of you reading this, get out a copy of the Constitution and read through it. Familiarize yourselves with the duties and limitations it places upon our government. Then remember that these elected officials only stay in office because you continue to vote for them. Then think about the lives lost defending this country and the principles outlined in that document. It is up to you to ensure that those who died, did not do so in vain.

Rudy Giuliani vs Ron Paul

At the recent GOP debate held in South Carolina, there was a brief confrontation between former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Congressman Ron Paul of Texas. Fox News is claiming that Congressman Paul implied that the U.S. had a hand in the attacks of 911. That is absolutely not true, as anyone who saw the debate can verify.

Congressman Paul said, and I quote, "They attack us because we've been over there. We've been bombing Iraq for ten years. We've been in the Middle East...I think Reagan was right, we don't understand the irrationality of Middle Eastern politics." Mayor Giuliani then defined his interpretation of Congressman Paul's comments by saying, "That is an extraordinary statement as someone who has lived through the attack of September 11, that we invited the attack because we were attacking Iraq. I don't think I've ever heard that before, and I've heard some pretty absurd explanations for September 11." Mayor Giuliani received a round of applause for his rebuking of Congressman Paul.

A Fox News clip showed the confrontation and then continued by talking about the 9-11 truth movement. John Gibsons report stated that, "According to a recent Rasmussen Poll, 35% of Democrats think President Bush knew about the 911 attacks before hand. The so called 9-11 Truth Movement has already infected people like Rosie O Donnell, and one in three Democrats, and many other Americans, evidently including Congressman Ron Paul."

Correspondent Michelle Malkin afterwards says that Congressman Ron Paul really has no business being on stage as a legitimate representative of Republicans because the 9-11 truth virus is something that infect only a very small proportion of people that would identify themselves as conservative or republican..."

I remember after the attacks how we wanted answers. We called for investigations and we wanted to know how much the government knew beforehand. We got a report, the 911 Commissions Report. Why is it that Rudy Giuliani's testimony before the commission never made it into the final draft of the report for us to review?

The quote, unquote official 9-11 report is full of holes and unanswered questions. Congressman Paul did not state that the only reason we were attacked was because of our presence in the Middle East or our continued bombing of Iraq. He said we do not understand the politics of the Middle East. The Americans wanted the truth after 9-11. I am reminded of a line by Jack Nicholson in the film, A Few Good Men, "You want the truth? You can't handle the truth!" After the applause that Rudy Giuliani received by his rebuke to Congressman Paul, that is evidently the case for the majority of the people in this country.

Those of us who seek the truth in regards to 9-11 are labeled 'conspiracy nuts' or we have the 9-11 truth virus. We are shunned, scorned and looked upon as lunatics by asking for answers to questions that have never truthfully been answered.

President Bush laid the blame for the attacks of 9-11 upon the shoulders of Osama Bin Laden and his Al Qaeda terrorist network. It is coming up on 6 years since the attacks of 9-11 and we still have not succeeded in capturing or killing Osama Bin Laden. We have however entangled ourselves in wars in Iraq and Afghanistan with no visible end in sight. Meanwhile Osama Bin Laden hides safely in Pakistan, a supposed ally in our War on Terror.

The President and his propaganda machine have skillfully taken our minds off the fact that the attacks of Sept. 11 were done at the desire of Bin Laden, and slowly shifted the focus to, as of yet, undiscovered weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and their ties to Bin Laden's Al Qaeda network. We have created a much more hostile breeding ground for terrorist recruitment in Iraq and fueled the fires of Islamic hatred for the west. Well done President Bush!

Besides embroiling us in a war that can no longer be called a war, but a police action, what else has President Bush done to secure our country from further terrorist attacks?

He managed to pass the Patriot Act and the Military Commissions Act, which do away with just about every safeguard to our personal liberty as outlined in the Bill of Rights. He established a huge bureaucracy that is supposed to protect us but has done nothing to secure our nation from future attacks. Sure, we have to take off our shoes when we board an airplane and we can no longer bring nail clippers or scissors, but how much more secure are we?

Six foreign-born Muslims have been arrested for plotting an attack on the Fort Dix Army base in New Jersey. Investigators say the men planned to "kill as many soldiers as possible."

The only, I repeat the only reason we caught these six men is because they took a video tape of themselves calling for jihad against the United States to be copied and the employee at the store contacted the FBI. If they had not been so stupid as to make that video, who knows if they might had been successful? Does that make you feel any more secure?

Who were these men who threatened to ‘kill as many soldiers as possible’? They were all of Middle Eastern backgrounds. Two had been admitted to the United States legally by visas, and three were, get this, illegal aliens. These three men came to the U.S. by crossing the border near Brownsville Texas, more than twenty years ago! The whole while the New Jersey police department chose to look the other way regarding the status of illegal aliens in this country. I wonder how many more of these jihadists are out there just biding their time?

It appears that President Bush’s War on Terror is not as successful as we would like it to be. Could it be because we are fighting the wrong thing? This is were the American people are not ready to hear the truth. We are not at war with a nation, a people, or even a terrorist group. We are at war with an ideal, and ideal that is based upon an extreme interpretation of the religion of Islam. Until the people of this country realize that we are in a religious war for the very survival of our country, our beliefs and our lives, we cannot win this war! I am not saying all Muslims are going to become suicide bombers or take up arms like those who planned on attacking Fort Dix, but how can you know who is or who isn’t?

Did you know the word Islam means submission? Did you know the word Muslim means one who submits to Allah? According to the followers of Islam, they must follow the Qur’an. Chapter 9, verse 5 of the Qur’an states, “Those who reject Islam must be killed. If they turn back from (Islam), take them and kill them wherever you find them.”

I don’t think it can be explained any less clearly what the goals of the followers of this extremist version of Islam are in regards to the people of this country. Every man woman and child in this country who is not a follower of Islam is an enemy to the faithful and we must all be converted or killed.

Now, with that being said, are we fighting this war on terror as effectively as we could be? Not hardly! The people of this country are too concerned with being politically correct and not racially profiling people.

Our government has left our borders open to anyone who can sneak through, and now they want to grant amnesty to every one who successfully snuck in to our country, irregardless of their beliefs or their loyalty to the United States and our culture.

That is just plain naive and ignorant!

It is bad enough that allow so many people into this country from countries that practice Islam. As has already been shown, one of the Fort Dix planners was a natural born U.S. citizen and two were here legally on visas.

There is another report done by the World Almanac that states that there are approximately 5,220,000 Muslims in the United States as of 1991. Whatever the number was in 1991, it is sure to have climbed by now.

On top of that our government is allowing Iraqi refugees to come settle in the United States. On May 10, there was an article in the Washington Post Foreign Service, by Nora Boustany, which stated that House Democrats plan to introduce a bill that would increase by at least 20,000 the number of Iraqi refugees eligible for resettlement in the United States in 2007 and 2008. It would also admit 15,000 “special immigrant status” Iraqis and their families for each of the next four years.

These are people who are fleeing their country because of the conditions that were created by a war we started. Do you not think there might be just a tiny bit of anger towards the United States? As former President Bush used to say, I don’t think that is prudent.

Getting back to Rudy Giuliani, he states “If any Republican is elected president-and I think obviously that I would be the best at this-we will remain on offense and will anticipate what the {terrorists} will do and try to stop them before they do it.”

Well Mister Mayor, your offense sucks! You are soft on immigration. You allowed New York to remain a sanctuary city for illegal aliens, which may have included who knows how many jihadists. You are for granting amnesty for those already here. You support the president and his misguided war on terror in Iraq. The presidents position, and yours only add fuel to the fire and give them more incentive to bring the war to us. We are violating their sovereignty and forcing upon them belief systems that go against the extremist version of Islam that produces these terrorists we claim to be at war with. All we are doing is stirring a hornets nest by maintaining our presence in the Middle East. Congressman Paul is right and you and the rest of the American people do not wish to hear the truth.

If we want to be effective at fighting this war against terrorism, we need to reconsider who and what it is we are fighting and come up with a strategy to protect our nation from more attacks within, not from across the ocean.

Teddy Kennedy shot down in flames

Senator Kennedy,

I would like to thank your office for responding to my letter concerning illegal immigration. I honestly didn't expect a reply, considering I am not a constituent of yours. However, with that being said I would like to comment on some of the things you said in your reply.

You stated that illegal immigration is a complex issue that needs comprehensive reform. Sir, it is not complex and, although it might need reforming, it does not need the kind of reform you, Congressmen Flake and Gutierrez, or even President Bush have in mind.

You state that there are approximately12 million illegal aliens in this country, but I have read estimates that place it between 20-50 million. Who honestly knows how many illegal aliens there actually are in this country?

On that note I would like to remind you of something you, yourself, once said.
"Out of deference to the critics, I want to comment on...what the bill will not do. First, our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually. Under the proposed bill, the present level of immigration remains substantially the same..."

Do you remember saying that? It was after a previous amnesty bill that was supposed to put an end to our problems with illegal immigration. Yet here we are, 21 years later with another batch of illegal aliens we don't know what to do with. I wonder sir, why do they keep coming if the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 was supposed to fix all our problems?

You have again become a cheerleader for more 'comprehensive immigration reform' legislation. You are a co-sponsor of S.B. 2611 which would grant amnesty if certain conditions, such as back payment of taxes, were met. Whatever you choose to call it, it is still an amnesty, a forgiveness for crimes committed against the laws and the people of the United States of America.

Could it be sir that our elected officials in Washington are oblivious to what is going on outside the Beltway? Could it be sir that the people who are elected to represent the American people are in actuality representing the people of Mexico? Could it be sir that the people who take an oath to uphold the Constitution have never read Article 4, Section 4, which reads,
"The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion..."

The only way to describe the number of illegal aliens who have been allowed to enter this country, is an invasion. Whatever the excuse of our elected officials, it is clearly a dereliction of their duty to protect the people of this country and therefore we should not be required to suck it up and stomach another amnesty to cover for your incompetence. We should be outraged and calling for the resignation of every single elected official who has not upheld their oath of office.

I have heard all the reasons for granting these aliens the right to stay here. They do the jobs Americans won't, it is time to bring them out of the shadows, they only want a better life.

I take great offense that I am expected to accept law breakers as people who should be considered eligible for any of the benefits this country has to offer. I take even greater offense at those who are elected to represent me, expect me and the other taxpayers of this country to subsidize these law breakers with tax funded services that were meant to be a safety net for American workers who come upon hard times. I take offense at being expected to learn another language because these people are unwilling to learn English. I take great offense when these criminals commit crimes in our cities and on our highways, then flee to Mexico to avoid prosecution, leaving American families to suffer the damages caused by these immigrants.

I know farmers who own fruit orchards, and they have in fact told me that they cannot get Americans to do the labor to operate their farms. So I can understand the need for immigrant laborers. However, using your estimate of 12 million illegal aliens, there should be no farm in this country that is in need of workers to pick their crops. Why then the need for any further Agricultural visas?

Could it be that the truth is that out of 12 million illegal aliens, only 4% are actually doing farm labor? Could it be sir, the other 96% are either taking jobs away from Americans, at much lower salaries, undercutting the wages for companies that do obey the law and hire American workers? I have almost 25 years experience working with electrical systems, but I cannot get a job as an electrician because I am not licensed. Yet there are Mexican workers pulling wires in new home construction in my area who have no experience whatsoever. Do not tell me they are doing the jobs Americans will not! I would, but am not allowed to because I will not work for minimum wage like these immigrants. Could it also be sir that they are working under the table but since they have a child in this country who, by the misinterpretation of the 14th Amendment, are automatic citizens, authorized to collect welfare, food stamps and a whole host of tax payer funded subsidies?

You see sir, I am not completely satisfied with your answer to my letter. You have tried to placate and pacify me, but it hasn't worked. I am still outraged at my governments lack of enforcement of existing laws and its attempt to force feed the American people another amnesty. I am sickened by its loyalty to the criminals who violate our sovereignty and its lack of loyalty to the people whom you represent.

Therefore this is the only immigration reform I will accept. Since our farmers do need workers to work the farms I propose the following. A guest worker program where citizens from Mexico can apply to work the fields in America. Notice I said citizens from Mexico, all illegal aliens living within our borders will be ineligible unless they reture to Mexico and apply through proper channels for a visa. However I must demand that these workers be paid at a decent wage of around $10 per hour. It can be done, the fruit farmers I spoke to all told me that they pay between $10-$11 an hour for their workers.

This is how the program would work. Any Mexican who wishes to work the fields in America would file an application, along with the filing fees. A background investigation would be performed, and if the applicant passed they would then wait, in Mexico, for an opening. Then when a farmer is in need of workers he could then contact the proper agency and inform them of how many workers were required. They would in turn select the required number of workers and issue them temporary visas. The workers would be fitted with a GPS tracking device upon their admittance to the United States. The employer would also pay a bond to ensure that they were returned to Mexico once their visa expired. The visas would be for the workers only. No family members, including wives. We do not want any more anchor babies born in this country which would allow these laborers to stay and collect benefits they are not entitled to.
At the end of the visa, the workers would return to Mexico. If they failed to return they could be located by their GPS tracking device and then located and deported, which would make them ineligible for further participation in the guest worker program.

If, during their stay in the United States, they are arrested for violating any of our laws, they would immediately be deported and, again be ineligible for future participation in the guest worker program.

These guest workers would not be eligible for any government subsidies while they are here. No food stamps, no welfare, no low income housing, no Medicaid. They would have to make do on the wages earned, just like we Americans are expected to.

If you think that is unfair, let me tell you a story. My wife is Filipina and her family has been unable to obtain visas to enter this country, although we have applied and followed all the proper requirements. Since we couldn't get them here, and since they are poor, we have spent a great deal of our own money to find them work abroad in places like Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Dubai. They are now working abroad, away from their families for one year periods. They work seven days a week and bring home a paltry $260 a month. They have to abide by Islamic Law, which means they cannot drink alcohol or participate in any Catholic religious services. However they do it because for them that is good money compared to what they would make in the Philippines. They do it to support their families.

So, if we want guest workers they can come here under the same conditions. These workers are here to make a living and support their families, not partake of the American dream at the expense of the U.S. taxpayers.

The abovementioned guest worker program would be conditional of course upon full enforcement of all current existing immigration law. There is no need to reform our laws, just enforce them! U.S. Code, Title 8, Section 1324a states, "Any person who knowingly hires/harbors/transports any illegal alien is guilty of a felony punishable by 10 years jail + $2000 fine per illegal alien + forfeiture of the vehicle or property used to commit the crime".

If we enforced that, no one, and I mean no one would hire an illegal alien. However you, our elected officials have allowed that law to go un-enforced to increase the profits of big business, at the cost of the destruction of our culture and our country by the massive influx of illegal alien invaders.

Next, finish the fence along the U.S./Mexico border. I could care less if President Calderon or the Catholic Church cry like babies about human rights violations or any other lame excuse they might offer up to oppose such a fence. Unless Mexico takes steps on their own to stop the tide of humanity washing across our border every minute of every day, I don't care what they think. Our nations future is at stake and that is what should be on the forefront of your mind with every piece of immigration legislation you consider.

Finally, cut off all tax funded subsidies for illegal aliens. They do not have the right to collect anything from this country. Their children may very well be citizens according to the misrepresentation of the 14th Amendment but the parents are not. If the child is deserving, take it away from the parents and put it up for adoption to an American family and deport the parents. Either that, or allow the parents to take their children and return to Mexico on their own. However they are not entitled to any government funded services!

Thomas Jefferson once said, "To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical." With upwards of 80% of the American people against illegal aliens receiving taxpayer funded subsidies, I would say our government is bordering on tyranny and violating their oath of office to uphold Article 4, Section 4 of the Constitution.

Once again sir, I thank your office for responding to my letter. You did not have to do so, as I am not a constituent of yours. However, you may want to rethink your position on any comprehensive immigration reform. You may want to begin talking to average American citizens to see how they feel on this issue. If you grant amnesty, however you wish to disguise it, to 12 million illegal aliens, you will only be opening Pandora's Box. You will create a future tidal wave of illegal aliens that is unlike anything we have yet to see. You will have once again shown your disdain for the people you are elected to represent, and finally you will have signed the papers that allows for the destruction of the United States of America as created by our founding fathers.

El Presidente Bush addresses his amigos

El Presidente Bush On Cinco de Mayo
Neal Ross
5 May, 2007

I would like to comment on the speech President Bush made at the White House on Cinco de Mayo. First off, did you notice who was in attendance? Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, Director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Emilio Gonzales, the Ambassador to Mexico Arturo Munoz-Ledo. Could that be a sign as to where our presidents loyalty lies?

As to what President Bush said in his speech, it was all designed to show you how great the contributions of the people of Mexico have been to our culture and our history. No mention was made about American ingenuity, American culture. Our contributions were entirely ignored and pushed aside as meaningless by this president, just as our thoughts and concerns are on the issue of illegal immigration.

President Bush said that, "We believe that both our nations have a responsibility to share the blessings of liberty." Mr. President, are you aware that even with all the oil wells in Saudi Arabia, Mexico has a higher Gross Domestic Product than the Saudis ? The economy of Mexico is the 9th highest in the world. If it is the responsibility of both countries to share in the blessings of liberty, when is the country of Mexico going to begin doing its part? Why don't they start amongst their own people?

The President went on to say, "Immigration has made our land a great melting pot of talent and ideas. It has made America a beacon of hope for people in search of a better life." Sir, immigration has made our country great. We are a nation of immigrants, but these immigrants came here legally and became Americans as Teddy Roosevelt once said in the following quote.

"From the melting pot of life in this free land all men and woman of all nations who come hither emerge as Americans and nothing else. They must have renounced completely and without reserve all allegiance to the land from which they or their forefathers came. And it is a binding duty on every citizen of this country in every important crisis to act solidly with all his fellow Americans, having regard only to the honor and interest of America, treating every other nation purely on its conduct in that crisis, without reference to his ancestral predilections or antipathies. If he does not act, he is false to the teachings and lives of Washington and Lincoln; he is not entitled to any part or lot in our country and he should be sent out of it."

In amongst the illegal aliens, that even though they have violated our laws by coming here illegally to find work, there are groups with various agendas of their own. There are the Hispanics who believe in Reconquista, the reacquisition of the land Mexico believes is rightfully theirs. How about the Mexica movement who say, “We say invasion, not discovery. We say stolen continent, not America. We say cultural castration, not assimilation. We say genocide, not Western expansion. We say racial rape, not mestizaje. We say theft, murder, racism and slavery, not capitalism.”

President Bush went on to say, “In Washington, we're now in the midst of an important discussion about immigration. Our current immigration system is in need of reform. It is not working.”

Mr. President, you are wrong. It is not our immigration system that is not working, it is our government. The president contradicted himself when he next said, “We need a system where our laws are respected.” That, Mr. President, is exactly what the problem is. Our laws are not respected, not just by the illegal aliens who cross our borders by the thousands, but by those in office who refuse to enforce them!

The President also said, “We need a system that meets the needs of our economy.”
I am forced to admit that our President hasn’t the slightest clue as to what our economy needs. For an economy to be strong and functioning we need a good middle class to buy the goods which drives business, and we need jobs in the manufacturing sector.

With the weakening of the middle class because of depressed wages due to companies hiring illegal workers at lower salaries, and the loss of manufacturing jobs to China and Mexico, our economy is ready to collapse. I believe the President is more concerned with corporate profits than the actual economy and how it affects the working citizens of this country.

Finally, the President said, “And we need a system that treats people with dignity and helps newcomers assimilate into our society.” Mr. President, how about treating the people of this country with some dignity? We pay your salary, we voted you into office, (at least some of us did). You swore an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States. By your disregard of the concerns of the citizens of this country regarding illegal aliens, and your continued plan to force the American people to accept an amnesty package, and don’t you dare call it anything else, you have shown that the illegal aliens and the government of Mexico are the ones to whom you are loyal. Sir, I am ashamed to call you an American, let alone our President.
