This Tuesday as I do on just about every Tuesday- at 8:00 AM Eastern Daylight Savings 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!
Today Helen and I will be discussing the how many of the issues that have prompted the mass demonstrations around our country are actually heavily impacted by the continuing failures of the government to secure our nation’s borders and create an immigration system that lives up to its purpose for existing- to protect our nation and our citizens from the presence of foreign nationals (aliens) whose presence among other things, threatens national security, adversely impacts public safety or harms our economy and makes it increasingly difficult for American workers to find decent jobs and be paid appropriate wages for their hard work!
Our nation’s immigration laws do not differentiate people by race, religion or ethnicity but do draw the distinction between citizens and non-citizens (aliens).
When politicians such as the governor insist on providing various benefits and hence incentives for illegal aliens to violate our nation’s laws and borders they are arguably committing a felony as defined by the Immigration and Nationality Act.
Of course the governor of the state of Rhode Island is not the only one who is violating our nation’s immigration laws.
Additionally we plan to also focus on the outrageous ATF investigation that was code-named “Fast and Furious” that resulted in hundreds, if not thousands of high powered firearms from making their way from the United States and into the hands of the members of the extremely violent Mexican drug cartels that have, since the election of Mexican President Felipe Calderon, slaughtered an estimated 40,000 Mexican citizens including members of the police, military and other governmental agencies as well as many civilians including men, women and children who had absolutely no connection to the drug trade but were in the proverbial “Wrong place at the wrong time” and paid the ultimate price because of it! You need to remember that United States Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was killed by one of those “walked” guns while on duty just hours before he was scheduled to fly home to spend the Christmas holiday with his family.
It must be expected that in the coming years, these firearms will be turning up at murder scenes, here in the United States!
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!
