This Tuesday, as I do on just about every Tuesday- at 8:00 AM Eastern Standard Time, I will be a guest on the excellent Helen Glover Show which is broadcast on Providence, Rhode Island’s Radio Station, WHJJ.
You can listen to Helen’s show online at:
Immigration is emerging as one of the most important issues in the minds of the citizens of our nation yet it would certainly appear that all too many of our elected “representatives” and other politicians who are supposed to “lead” with the consent of their constituents are blatantly ignoring the will of their constituents and their oaths of office!
In fact, while some claim immigration is a single issue, in my judgement, it is a singular issue because it significantly impacts virtually every challenge and threat confronting our nation today!
Today Helen and I will be discussing the recent ICE news release:
ICE News Release: “Feds make arrests in international firearms trafficking probe”
Here is a link to that news release:
We will discuss this case in contrast with the ATF investigation known as “Operation Fast and Furious”
We will also discuss the progress or lack thereof in having ICE provide the House Judiciary Committee with subpoenaed records concerning the 300,000 illegal aliens the administration has decided to not deport for reasons only known to the administration. Chairman Smith of the Judiciary Committee is attempting to make the administration accountable- (what a novel thought)!
Here is my commentary about this issue as it appears on my website:
I hope you will be listening to Helen’s excellent show!
The practice of good citizenship does not end in the voting booth, it only begins there.
The collective failure of We the People to get involved in make our concerns known to our politicians have nearly made the concerns of the great majority of the citizens of this nation all but irrelevant to the politicians. I implore you to get involved!
I believe our nation’s is greatly benefited by the rich diversity of our people which is why I could never imagine living anywhere except New York City, arguably the most diverse city in our nation if not, in fact, the world. However, my idea of diversity most certainly does not include members of MS-13, the Mexican drug cartels or members of other transnational gangs or members of al-Qaeda!
If our government’s failures to secure our nation’s borders and effectively enforce our immigration laws concerns you or especially if it angers you, I ask you to call your Senators and Congressional “Representative. This is not only your right- it is your obligation!
All I ask is that you make it clear to our politicians that we are not as dumb as they hope we are!
We live in a perilous world and in a perilous era. The survival of our nation and the lives of our citizens hang in the balance.
This is neither a Conservative issue, nor is it a Liberal issue- simply stated, this is most certainly an AMERICAN issue!
You are either part of the solution or you are a part of the problem!
Democracy is not a spectator sport!
Lead, follow or get out of the way!
