El Presidente Bush addresses his amigos

El Presidente Bush On Cinco de Mayo

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.
