On September 3, 2013 I joined Congressman Lou Barletta on the campus of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University to participate in a town hall meeting on illegal immigration. The sponsor of this event was Marc Bernier, a radio show host on Dayton Beach, Florida radio station WNDB, and an assistant to the president of Embry-Riddle University. I have become a “regular guest” on Marc’s excellent program and he moderated the discussion.
The event was recorded by C-SPAN for broadcast and, on September 8, 2013 it was broadcast with the title:
“Embry Riddle Student Forum on Illegal Immigration”
This program is now available on-demand in the C-SPAN library of previously broadcasted programs.
Here is the link to the C-SPAN coverage of our discussion:
The event was also covered live by Radio Station WNDB and is available on Marc’s website as a podcast. Here is the link to Marc’s website:
Lou Barletta is one of those all too rare true leaders in Congress, whose position on the immigration crisis makes his commitment to America and Americans crystal clear.
The discussion was wide-ranging and covered many of the important components of the immigration crisis that undermines national security, community safety and a host of other issues. I urge you to take the time to watch the video and forward this e-mail to as many of your friends as possible and that you ask them to do the same. I am attempting to create a “Bucket Brigade of Truth!”
Immigration is not a single issue but a singular issue that impacts nearly every challenge and threat confronting the United States today! Simply stated, the immigration laws were enacted to save lives and protect the jobs of American workers.
It is not “Anti-Immigrant” to be Pro-American!
Our armed forces are charged with securing America’s borders externally while the DHS is supposed to secure those same borders from within. The failures of the DHS to live up to its half of the equation are undermining the efforts, valor and incredible sacrifices of Americas men and women who serve in our military!
If our government’s failures to protect American jobs by securing our nation’s borders and effectively enforcing 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!
