Ever since the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 I have endeavored to provide the information about the nexus between immigration and national security and the multitude of other ways that failures of the immigration system impacts America and Americans.
On Monday, May 5, 2014 at 6:30 PM Eastern Daylight Saving Time, I will be conducting a town hall meeting via the magic of Skype. The Villages Tea Party located in Florida will be hosting the town hall meeting that will be available online live and will, subsequently, permanently posted on their website.
I urge you to watch this important meeting and become informed. It has been said that “Knowledge is power.” My goal is to empower as many of our fellow Americans- especially as the primary and general elections loom large on the horizon.
Please tell as many folks as you can about this event- I am attempting to create a “Bucket Brigade of Truth!”
As I have frequently noted, immigration is not a single issue, but a singular issue and the lack of integrity to the system undermines national security, public safety, public health and healthcare, the economy, the environment and other issues of great importance to all of us.
The information about the failures of the immigration system and the profound ways it hammers America and Americans is not being provided by the mainstream media.
I discussed this lack of honest information about immigration in my April 15, 2014 commentary for CAPS (Californians for Population Stabilization):
Consequently we need to find other ways of getting this vital information “out there.”
Today the folks of The Villages Tea Party is pitching in and providing this terrific opportunity.
I hope you will be watching!
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.
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!
