“Immigration ‘Reform’: Engineered Destruction of the Middle Class”

The real reason high-tech titans are lining up behind the amnesty effort. 

Politicians who claim that it is appropriate to provide unknown millions of illegal aliens who evaded the inspections process carried out by the more than 20,000 employees of CBP (Customs and Border Protection) to prevent, in part, the entry of international terrorists,  transnational criminals, international fugitives from justice, spies, war criminals and others who would pose a threat to our safety and well being are not unlike that false “mother” of biblical notoriety.   
When a long list of companies fire tens of thousands of highly educated, highly qualified and highly experienced workers in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) related professions- and then insist we need to import hundreds of thousand foreign workers to do these very same jobs, it is obvious that there is no shortage of Americans who are ready, willing and able to do these jobs- only employers who could not care less about America or Americans.  Any politician who parrots these outrageous claims are no more than ventriloquist dummies whose mouths are being operated by the wealthy “campaign contributors!”
Only a false leader who could not care less about the well being of our nation and our citizens!
Today our nation and our citizens face a list of challenges and threats- nearly every one of which is being exacerbated by long-standing failures of our nation to secure our borders and enforce our immigration laws.  To be clear, it is not “Anti-Immigrant” to want these two issues to be dealt with effectively.  It is not racist to insist on enforcing those laws either- our immigration laws are utterly, completely and totally blind as to race, religion and ethnicity.
In point of fact, the same immigration laws that mandate the categories of aliens to be kept our of our country and the terms under which aliens should be removed from our country have absolutely nothing to do with race, religion or ethnicity, also provide for the lawful admission of roughly one million lawful immigrants and the naturalization of hundreds of thousands of new citizens each year.
It is therefore a contradiction in terms and thinking to claim that it is “Anti-Immigrant” to support the effective enforcement and administration of our immigration laws   
Finally, this is about making certain that foreign nationals will not become public charges and will not seek or gain employment that will enable them to compete unfairly with American workers thereby displacing Americans similarly employed and/or driving down the wages of such Americans workers.
Let us be clear in our thinking- it is “Pro-Immigrant” to be “Pro-Enforcement!”

The ‘Secure Our Border First Act’ Deception »

On June 13, 2013 I was interviewed by Neil Cavuto at Fox News on the topic:

The interview ran about 4 minutes and is worth watching.

On April 4, 2014, CAPS (Californians for Population Stabilization) posted my commentary that asks the questions all Americans need to ask their political “representatives.”  My commentary is aptly titled:  “How? Why?

In his historic speech before the 3rd Army on May 31, 1944, General George S. Patton said, on the strategy of holding a position:

We’re not holding anything, we’ll let the Hun do that. We are advancing constantly, and we’re not interested in holding onto anything except the enemy.”

Pushing back against Comprehensive Immigration Reform is the same as holding position. The time has come for us to advance by demanding that our borders be made truly secure and our immigration laws be effectively administered and enforced.

Comprehensive Immigration Reform violates all of the findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission but no one is willing to even consider how the lack of real border security and the lack of real integrity to the various components of the immigration system imperil national security and public safety.

The findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission must be the starting point for any discussion about immigration legislation.  That commission determined that a lack of border security, including the visa process. and fraud in the immigration benefits program, enabled terrorists to enter and embed themselves in the United States, as they went about their deadly preparations.

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.  In point of fact, our borders and our immigration laws are America’s first line of defense and last line of defense against international terrorists and transnational criminals.
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!
