And So I Go: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

Posts Tagged ‘Illegal immigration

Heritage Newsletter offer us experts opinions on the news of the day and how it will affect you.   This was really a big day since the Supreme Court came down with two big rulings: one gave a victory to gay marriage by ruling against the Congressional Bill passed under Clinton called the Defense of marriage Act (DOMA)  which ruled marriage as being between a man and a woman.  I have been against this changing of our marriage laws on the grounds off finances.   This act by the court throws the problem back to the states but then after ruling that the California law *(voted for by the people) against gay marriage as unconstitutional it seems no state and certainly the majority of the voters have no say in this matter.   As stated I have been and am against the legalizing of s  gay marriage  because it  fives rights for financial support that have been the rights of wives and husbands only.   For instance social security support for widows and orphans.  the “orphans” part may be easy top figure out but who is the “widow”?   Are Both  parties in a lesbian marriage widows?   Do homosexual couples need to designate a “widow”?  And this is just the tip of a huge financial ice berg that We the Taxpayers will be responsible for that we were not before today.

The second ruling by the Supreme Court was one I feel is long overdue in being corrected.  States should and do have the right to determine what their voting laws are but until todays ruling 14 states had to get permission from some clerk in Washington before they could so much as change the location of a voting location.  In fact  one district in one of these states could not vote in the 2000 election due to a water pipe breaking and  flooding the polling place.  But since they had to get permission from Washington to move the site they simply had to disenfranchise the voters ion that district!   Now that was an extreme and surely rare happening but it really does point out the nonsense of following a law that was very necessary when passed by 50 years later attitudes and laws and mostly people’s views have changed and no Black can or will be kept from voting.  After all we do now have a Black as President!

And be sure to take note of how our President plans to go around your elected officials in Congress and use the EPA Environmental Protection Agency to force  his climate change agenda and war on coal and oil on us.   People there is no such thing as climate change.  the Earth is not getting hotter.  Obama lied again and again in his speech yesterday at Georgetown University.  Don’t believe me but do your own research and go to the records kept by the government itself  and see that we are experiencing right now the cycle that is normal and active in the 1950’s.  Then the hotter seasons was followed by a cooling off and so-called “cooling of the Earth due to the use of fossil fuels ” that occurred in the 1970’s.  these damned fools lead by Hollywood idiots and our President  are helping a cool group of men led by Al Gore and Barrack Obama to make a pile of money.   But while they are manipulating and  lining their pockets with all the money it will cost to go from fossil fuels to their so-called clean and not at all reliable wind and solar We the People are going to see the cost of energy to us going out of  sight.  And since energy is needed for every aspect of our lives including the food on our tables that means everything in our lives will cost more.  Well, anyhow  please do read the article and go to the references.   Sincerely, BB

• May. 2, 2007 – A Formula for Destroying America.

Posted in Commentary

IN my late night can’t sleep surfing the web I came across this and it reminded me of I debated for immigration and used my grandparents as examples and how they became Americans the moment they stepped off the boat in New York Harbor. And, they pressed their children to do well in school and saw that they all graduated from high school even during the hard times of the Great Depression of the 1930’s. Well since then I have been taking another and closer look at the Hispanic population. I can honestly say I have never met people who are more polite and just plain nice. They are a gentle lovely people who care greatly for their families and family ties. But, it does seem to be true that their children are failing in our schools and the parents don’t seem to consider education important, unlike our grandparents.

Read the following please and let me know what you think. So many things came to mind as I read it. Like the minorities blaming the rest of us for their failure. Isn’t that what is happening right here in Greensboro with the Black community? Deena Hayes makes no bones of it in blaming the White community for the drop out rate of Black students. Irrational as that is she is not alone because I have read similar comments by Allen Johnson. Brenda

And yes the following is true because I read it on Snopes. Here is the link, and there is a REVISED speech on there, too.

We know Dick Lamm as the former Governor of Colorado. In that context his thoughts are particularly poignant. Last week there was an immigration overpopulation conference in Washington , DC , filled to
capacity by many of America ’s finest minds and leaders. A brilliant college professor by the name of Victor Hansen Davis [should be Victor Davis Hanson] talked about his latest book, Mexifornia, explaining how immigration – both legal and illegal was destroying the entire state of California . He said it would
march across the country until it destroyed all vestiges of The American Dream.

Moments later, former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm stood up and gave a stunning speech on how to destroy America . The audience sat spellbound as he described eight methods for the destruction of the
United States . He said, “If you believe that America is too smug, too self-satisfied, too rich, then let’s destroy America . It is not that hard to do. No nation in history has survived the ravages of time. Arnold Toynbee observed that all great civilizations rise and fall and
that an autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide.”

“Here is how they do it,” Lamm said: “First, to destroy America , turn America into a bilingual or multi-lingual and bicultural country.” History shows that no nation can survive the tension, conflict, and antagonism of two or more competing languages and cultures. It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual; however, it is a curse for a society to be bilingual. The historical scholar, Seymour Lipset, put it this way: “The histories of bilingual and bi-cultural societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension, and tragedy.” Canada, Belgium, Malaysia, and Lebanon all face crises of national existence in which minorities press for autonomy, if not independence. Pakistan and Cyprus have divided. Nigeria suppressed an ethnic rebellion. France faces difficulties with Basques, Bretons, and Corsicans.

Lamm went on: Second, to destroy America , “Invent ‘multiculturalism’ and encourage immigrants to maintain their culture. Make it an article of belief that all cultures are equal. That there are no cultural differences. Make it an article of faith that the Black and Hispanic dropout rates are due solely to prejudice and discrimination by the majority. Every other explanation is out of bounds.

Third, “We could make the United States an ‘Hispanic Quebec’ without much effort. The key is to celebrate diversity rather than unity. As Benjamin Schwarz said in the Atlantic Monthly recently: “The apparent success of our own multiethnic and multicultural experiment might have been achieved not by tolerance but by hegemony. Without the dominance that once dictated ethnocentricity and what it meant to be an American,
we are left with only tolerance and pluralism to hold us together.”
Lamm said, “I would encourage all immigrants to keep their own language and culture. I would replace the melting pot metaphor with the salad bowl metaphor. It is important to ensure that we have various cultural
subgroups living in America enforcing their differences rather than as Americans, emphasizing their similarities.”

“Fourth, I would make our fastest growing demographic group the least educated. I would add a second underclass, unassimilated, undereducated,
and antagonistic to our population. I would have this second underclass have a 50% dropout rate from high school.”

“My fifth point for destroying America would be to get big foundations and business to give these efforts lots of money. I would invest in ethnic identity, and I would establish the cult of ‘Victimology.’ I would get all minorities to think that their lack of success was the
fault of the majority. I would start a grievance industry blaming all minority failure on the majority population.”

“My sixth plan for America ’s downfall would include dual citizenship, and promote divided loyalties. I would celebrate diversity over unity. I would stress differences rather than similarities. Diverse people worldwide are mostly engaged in hating each other – that is, when they
are not killing each other. A diverse, peaceful, or stable society is against most historical precedent. People undervalue the unity it takes to keep a nation together. Look at the ancient Greeks. The Greeks believed that they belonged to the same race; they possessed a common language and literature; and they worshipped the same gods. All Greece took part in the Olympic games. A common enemy, Persia , threatened their liberty. Yet all these bonds were not strong enough to overcome two factors: local patriotism in the city states and geographical conditions that nurtured political divisions. Greece fell. “E. Pluribus Unum” –From many, one. In that historical reality, if we put the emphasis on the ‘pluribus’ instead of the ‘Unum,’ we will balkanize America as surely as Kosovo.”

“Next to last, I would place all subjects off limits; make it taboo to talk about anything against the cult of ‘diversity.’ I would find a word similar to ‘heretic’ in the 16th century – that stopped discussion and paralyzed thinking. Words like ‘racist’ or ‘xenophobe’ halt discussion and debate. Having made America a bilingual/bicultural country, having established multi-culturism, having the large foundations fund the
doctrine of ‘Victimology,’ I would next make it impossible to enforce our immigration laws. I would develop a mantra: That because immigration has been good for America , it must always be good. I would make every
individual immigrant symmetric and ignore the cumulative impact of millions of them.”

In the last minute of his speech, Governor Lamm wiped his brow. Profound silence followed. Finally he said, “Lastly, I would censor Victor Hanson Davis’s book Mexifornia. His book is dangerous. It exposes the
plan to destroy America . If you feel America . deserves to be destroyed, don’t read that book.”

There was no applause. A chilling fear quietly rose like an ominous cloud above every attendee at the conference. Every American in that room knew that everything Lamm enumerated was proceeding methodically, quietly, darkly, yet pervasively across the United States today. Discussion is being suppressed. Over 100 languages are ripping the foundation of our educational system and national cohesiveness. Even
barbaric cultures that practice female genital mutilation are growing as we celebrate ‘diversity.’ American jobs are vanishing into the Third World as corporations create a Third World in America – take note of California
and other states – to date, ten million illegal aliens and growing fast.
It is reminiscent of George Orwell’s book “1984.” In that story, three slogans are engraved in the Ministry of Truth building: “War is peace,” “Freedom is slavery,” and “Ignorance is strength.”

Governor Lamm walked back to his seat. It dawned on everyone at the conference that our nation and the future of this great democracy is deeply in trouble and worsening fast. If we don’t get this immigration
monster stopped within three years, it will rage like a California wildfire and destroy everything in its path especially The American Dream

This is the complete text of Family security matters interview with Dr. Corsi author of the book “America for Sale”.   Good read.  BB

Exclusive: FSM Interviews Dr. Jerome Corsi, Author of ‘America for Sale’

The Editors

In America”>America for Sale: Fighting the New World Order, Surviving a Global Depression and Preserving USA Sovereignty, the latest bestseller by author and senior staff reporter for World Net Daily, Dr. Jerome Corsi expertly outlines the downward spiral America has taken away from her capitalist roots and down the path to dark socialism. Dr. Corsi recently sat down with Family Security Matters’ Renee Taylor:
FAMILY SECURITY MATTERS: In chapter 10, you have a section titled “Presidential Power Grabs,” which outlines President Bush’s signing of an executive order granting near-dictatorial powers in the case of national emergency. Recently, President Obama declared a national emergency regarding the H1N1 flu virus. Do you think, given the administration’s determination to push nationalized health care, among other things, he may take the opportunity to seize upon other powers noted in the order signed by President Bush?
DR. JEROME CORSI: Of course, any death is tragic and this flu seems to be hitting children and those with respiratory illness more severely. But 1,000 people is still a minimal number of deaths in a country with over 300 million people. There are something like 40,000 deaths a year on the highways, but we don’t declare a national emergency on the highways. So, I’m waiting to see what the rationale and purpose is and how President Obama carries them out, what the justification is. I am always suspicious, whether it is a Republican or Democrat president, of any exertion of emergency powers. Our Founding Fathers were suspicious of it; they were suspicious of King George III. They could have written emergency powers into the Constitution, but they did not do so. All these powers are granted by executive order by the White House itself over the years. I don’t have conclusive proof yet what the Obama White House is intending to do, but I’m watching it very carefully.
FSM: In chapter 4, you discuss the effects of exporting of jobs overseas and illegal immigration in the name of cheap labor on our American job market, as well as the Mexican Truck Pilot Program. As more and more jobs are either exported or taken by low-paid migrant workers, what do you suggest the average American worker  – the truck driver, the customer service representative, the restaurant worker and such – do to preserve his future?
DR. CORSI: This is, again, a real tragedy. The globalist agenda that I point out in that chapter is a race to the bottom in wages. And so, I don’t think the American middle class is aware of it yet, but is becoming aware of it, that the USA became a great country by building the strongest middle class at the end of WWII. That was not accidental. It goes back to the labor movement of the ‘20s and ‘30s, which was certainly justified at that era, when demand of labor be part of the capital equation and labor be paid for. We forget that principle and allow corporations to seek a “global” workforce, whether it’s illegal immigrants or different jobs to China or India, which is undercutting the American middle class. What the middle class has to do is fight back and say “no,” to demand that employees in the United States be legally qualified to be employed, that we enforce our immigration laws which we do not do and we have to demand in foreign trade agreements that these anti-dumping provisions which used to be traditional in all free-trade agreements be re-imposed. A comparative advantage can’t be a country subsidizing its currency, exploiting labor and producing defective goods. Meanwhile, we allow that country to ship their goods into the United States, dumping into our markets goods that will undercut the U.S. workers and their goods. It will not produce quality middle class workers in those countries, either. It is predicated on exploiting their labor. We have to resist this. We have to understand for the cheap price of sneakers and electronics; we cannot be undercutting the American middle class, which is the engine that drives the world economy anyway. To un-employ the American middle class and reduce its standard of living is globalism. It is suicidal even for globalism because globalism depends upon the American consumer to fuel global profit. We have to do things like enforce our immigration laws and the anti-dumping provisions.
FSM: You note in your book that the current economic situation is not new, but has gained momentum in the past few years. At what point did we begin the downward spiral into socialism?  Did it begin with The New Deal or at some point earlier or later?
DR. CORSI: Certainly, the New Deal was a major turning point. It was the determination that we were going to pay generous social welfare benefits that government funded to American citizens. Now, limited social welfare benefits were considered a safety net in nature. Our reasonable Social Security


was meant to be a paid-in system. You then received your benefits back that you paid in. But as we developed an expansion of social welfare programs in Great Society under Lyndon Johnson and since then, we have had wildly out-of-control spending programs that have entitlements that are almost unlimited liability with no way to fund them. I point out that a bumblebee being 10 times bigger than its normal size will not fly. So when we’re now running trillion dollar deficits and have negative unfunded liability, the net worth of the United States is negative net worth in something like $65.5 trillion. The former head of the Government Accountability Office, David Walker, has been going on an accountability tour, a wake-up tour, saying this is a fiscal cancer, we cannot continue to support these generous social welfare programs, no matter how well intentioned they are. We’re bankrupt by them. The only way they could ever be paid is if we monetize the dollar. That is the reality. That is the only way to pay them.

So, Americans have to face the reality that, as nice as it is that we can provide benefits like universal health care insurance and the others, why don’t we just send everyone a million dollars? There can be no limit to our generosity. The only limit to our generosity is our ability to pay for it. What I’m saying is that we have to realize that these entitlement programs are of a magnitude that they are bankrupting the United States and causing the currency to become debased, so they have to be scaled back. It’ll either be done by getting in a Congress ready to toe the line or will be forced on it, as the dollar will be devalued and we will not be able to borrow the money we need in international markets to subsidize the deficits and we will see a dramatic weakness in the economic strength of the United States. One way or another, the reality is going to hit America – in that we cannot afford these social welfare programs at this magnitude.
FSM: What are your thoughts on our elected officials and their willingness to sell our nation out to China, the Middle East and others? As more and more foreign countries buy into our banks and other businesses, do you believe Americans will be subjected more and more to such practices as Sharia Law?
DR. CORSI: These are the kinds of concerns I raise in the book. Long term, when people invest, they expect to have a say in the direction of the business. It is hard imagine that Sharia Law would not be introduced in time. The same can be said with China. China, as I point out in the book, is demanding that they have some equity for their debt. China is saying things like these public/private partnerships – why don’t we manage some ports or highways? If China were to do that, what assurance do we have that China wouldn’t be pursuing those goals with China’s own national security interests in mind, not ours?
U.S. politicians seem to be happy to enrich themselves with funds from (such entities). I point again to Goldman-Sachs funding both Republican and Democrat candidates in 2008, John McCain and Barack Obama. Henry Paulson, of course, made millions of dollars at Goldman-Sachs making trade missions to China, then as Secretary of the Treasury, kept doing the same. The globalists don’t intend to lose. George Soros, who I point out in the book is one of the globalists, again funded both candidates, although Barack Obama much heavier than John McCain. These globalists are going to cash in. The losers are the American middle class. The politicians in Washington seem happy to collect campaign contributions from the globalists and turn a blind eye to the middle class who put them in office. If this continues, the first reaction we will have in 2010, I’m predicting the Democrats are going to have a massive bloodbath and will lose control of the House. If the Democrats don’t understand this, they’ll lose the presidency, the House and the Senate in 2012. And if the American people get Republicans in and the Republicans don’t listen to them, the American people will throw them out, too.
What is happening is that neither party is listening to the American people right now. I think you are seeing this is the greatest opportunity for independent and third party candidates to make a big impact and we’ll begin to see this in elections like the New York 23rd District. It just proved one of the points I make in the book. Americans are losing interest in both Democrats and Republicans alike.
FSM: You have an excellent chapter discussing our dependency on foreign oil. We have been at war with Islamic nations for nearly nine years and continue to purchase oil from other Islamic nations that we know are funding the very enemy our soldiers are fighting. What is your opinion on our elected officials’ continued blocking of domestic drilling, preferring, it seems, to do business with and build the coffers of our enemies?
DR. CORSI: it makes no sense at all. We are also sending out the door hundreds of billions of dollars of what ends up foreign exchange reserve in the hands of the Middle Eastern oil producing countries, and also Mexico, Canada and Venezuela. We’re importing oil from all three. Hugo Chávez is no friend of the United States. I’ve been telling people that oil is not dinosaur soup; it has nothing to do with biological origins. We will find extensive oil in deep levels. Now you have Brazil who is finding oil off the coast in the Atlantic and is poised to be in the position of the Saudi Arabia of the Western Hemisphere. Barack Obama is sitting on a vote in Congress that opened up off-shore drilling, refusing to allow those leases to be granted and this again is suicidal. We could be producing our own oil. We may not be able to go to complete independence. But you don’t have to do that. You just have to go step-by-step.
Let’s say that we set a goal. We have 60 percent dependence on oil from foreign nations. Let’s get it down to 55 percent. Let’s get it down to 50 percent. Let’s at least move in the right direction. That is, I think, the key issue, and I am arguing that we have abundant natural gas and oil resources within the continental United States, including Alaska. I point out that the earth’s natural gas reserve, which the Department of Energy validates, is 100 years of natural gas within the United States. Why don’t we develop more nuclear power like France does? I also point this out in the book. There is no reason why a dependence on foreign oil should jeopardize our international balance of trade position to the detriment of the dollar. And that is what we are doing, besides supporting many countries that are not necessarily our friends.
FSM: Is there anything you would like to share with our Family Security Matters readers that we have not covered?
DR. CORSI: There is this plan to destroy the dollar. Robert Mundell, the father of the euro, is advising China. China wants this international monetary fund with special drawing rights to be used in international trade as a dollar alternative. And President Obama agreed to that with support of the plan at the G-20 meeting in London in April. The whole issue there is one where we are facing the United States Government under President Obama funding a competitor to the dollar, which is, in Robert Mundell’s view, the long-term death of the dollar. Mundell wants us to move to one world currency so they are not nation-state based. I think the readers need to know that President Obama knows the deficits are going to debase the currency and rather than defend the dollar, regardless of what the administration says, the Obama administration is going right along with the plan to ultimately destroy the dollar.
FSM: Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to speak with us.
DR. CORSI: My pleasure.

Dear Reader,  I am posting a comment left on my site merely for your information.  I am not endorsing the comment since I do not have the time to research everything mentioned.  I am aware that some of the information is factual however.  If you are interested you can do your own research.

My views on illegal immigration are not as strict as some of my readers.  I feel our borders MUST be closed down tight immediately.  I also feel we must make some provisions for the many illegals already in the country, some of whom have been here 25 years or more, to gain citizenship, or legality of some sort.  I feel we must also make available English language classes as night schools available to all who need help integrating into the American culture and economic life. (this does not mean free community college! which is a hair brained idea!!)

Any illegal aliens who are caught breaking the law (other than simply being illegal aliens) are criminals and are to be deported.  This rounding up of illegals is simply unfeasible outside of the border states, in my opinion.  that is why I feel it should just be a matter of regular police work arresting law breakers on other charges and when found they are illegal then deportation.

That said, you know my views again.  Britannicus is of a sterner view obviously, but none the less a valid view because yes, anyone entering our country without permission has broken our laws.  BB

brittanicusThe House-Senate committees has completed its funding in the Homeland Security Appropriations bill as of yesterday, undermining long-term security of unemployed American workers. They omitted the language that would have implemented the E-Verify application on a permanent basis to eject illegal workers. Instead, the conference extended the agreement limits of reauthorization for just three years. Even as E-Verify is gaining in nationwide popularity in businesses, the politicians are still catering to illegal immigrants. A assessment to extend E-Verify for only three more years is further evidence that Sen. Reid and the administration’s effort, to raise a façade, but all the while dismantling effectual controls against immigration invasion. So although the open border organization, headed by quasi-leadership of the Council of Foreign Relations, US Chamber of Commerce and anti American organizations such as the ACLU, La Raza didn’t win in Federal Court they still determined to corrode the laws.

These special interest lobbyists are well organized in the Democratic Senate and House to undermine any enforcement of immigration laws, including the 1986 (IRCA) that is a law that was never enforced. Same day Sen.David Vitter offered an amendment to sever Federal funds to SANCTUARY CITIES AND STATES, but as always they failed to observe the “Rule of Law.” The vote went along party lines except for three Republicans who voted with the Democrats to table the amendment. One Democrat voted against the motion – Landrieu (LA). Even though we can throw the conspirators out, when they come up for re-election it will have little effect? Even though they lose their seats, they will be reimbursed by their corporate friends with nice civilian desk jobs, with bloated pay checks.

NUMBERSUSA is an American people’s website that removes the propaganda placed on us by the Liberal press. At this location is raw evidence–YOU NEED TO KNOW–of the Democratic Leadership who is conspiring with industry, so that millions of illegal immigrants can still cross the border, so they can feed like leeches from American taxpayers and take the jobs. Everything you need to know about corrupted officials, mayor’s judges, governors and politicians is available at JUDICIAL WATCH. Learn where billions of dollars are going for undisclosed welfare programs for illegal aliens and families. Go to these websites and become a political advocate and keep the names of each treacherous politician in your long term memory.

Throw out Sen. Harry Reid, as he has been in the forefront of de-funding, derailing all the active laws such as 287 G. Janet Napolitano should join him on the garbage heap, along with speaker Pelosi who has an (F-) in immigration grading for enforcement. Mark your own lawmaker and drag him across the hot coals by calling 202-224-3121 Find out the buried truth at NUMBERSUSA, JUDICIAL WATCH & CAPSWEB, for overpopulation facts. They even went after Sheriff Joe Ariapo in Arizona for carrying out his duties, under the 287 G fed law. His deputies were so successful in the removal program; big business went crawling to the Democratic leaders pleading for assistance. GET THE FACTS–NOT THE LIES! REMEMBER NO TAXPAYER HEALTH CARE FOR FOREIGN NATIONALS! NO AMNESTY! NO NOTHING! THEY BROKE OUR LAWS OF SOVEREIGNTY!

Thank you
Britannicus. i believe I have seen you on my site before. Your comments are always welcome. In the case of this one I am using it as a post as well as leaving it here as a comment. As a separate post it will be seen by more of my readers. I will not endorse what you have written because I don’t have time to do the research but I will put it out there for anyone who wants m,ore information. Okay? Sincerely, Brenda Bowers

I seem to be getting the message that illegal immigration and Obama’s amnesty bill are the next big item on people’s minds.    This post:

Obama’s Amnesty Bill Provisions are Outrageous!

Posted by: brendabowers on: May 11, 2009      has so far gotten over 1500 hits.  Every day there are several who listen to the Lou Dobbs video posted on this site.

I hope that we as Americans can come to some reasonable  solution  with the illegal immigration problem.    From what I have seen the Hispanics who are  in Greensboro, NC are hard working good people.   I know that most are illegal aliens because  most lack skills that would give them preference on the legal immigration lists.  But I would hate to see them forced into some type of   “camps” or deported without some consideration of what they have also given this their new country.

I promise you that if I were living in poverty in Mexico I too would do what ever I could to bring myself and my family to the United States!

I do not however agree with the Obama  amnesty plan at all.  Before doing anything we MUST close our borders even if it means sending the national guard in with orders to shoot to kill.  That MUST be our first priority. Then we must stop using the Spanish language except in emergency situations as in 911, the police and hospitals and clinics. These people need classes set up in our schools at night and on weekends to help them learn English because until they are fully conversant in English they have no hope of assimilating into the American  workforce and will remain second class low paid workers.  Learning English will free these people to finding their place  and making any advancements in their status that their individual  skills and intelligence allows.  I do not feel we should  “give” special free education and other advantages to these illegal immigrants or their children that are not available to the population at large.  Making community colleges free to a few of them who can take advantage of such an opportunity is not fair to the rest of the population and it certainly will not help the majority of Hispanics! Making English language classes available in our public schools is fair and honest.  This was done in the early 1900’s for immigrants coming to America and it worked very well.  My grandfather was in an English language within one week of getting off the boat from Russia in 1910.  He spoke some English but needed the classes to be able to get a better job so he went to school.  Today’s immigrants would do the same if given a chance!

As for deportation.  I feel only those who break the laws in this country should be deported immediately.    This should apply to all immigrants both legal and illegal.   Breaking the law after being invited or even sneaking into our country should be absolutely unforgivable.  They should be deported automatically for everything from drunk driving to murder with no exceptions! We as Americans should not fear the Hispanics among us but we certainly should fear the groups of Muslims who have been brought here and who are known to be plotting against the United States and supporting terrorist organizations But somehow these truly un-American groups seem to be off our radar screens.  I sincerely believe we will rue this attitude.

And yes, I do understand that most Hispanics have already broken one of our laws by coming here.  Crossing our border illegally is the only pass I would give.  Any other laws broken from drunk driving to murder should automatically  mean deportation.  If they have family in this country the family may choose to be deported with them or to stay here.

As for citizenship:  once the individual has a good foundation in the language and moves up on the economic scale they can choose for themselves whether to apply for American citizenship as do legal immigrants.  This  so-called “pathway” to citizenship  isn’t necessary.  If the individuals choose not to be able to vote in our elections  that is certainly their right and not even as bad as the millions of legal Americans who do not bother to vote.  All we should be concerned with is that they obey the laws and pay their taxes.

Yes, I do truly hope we Americans are reasonable  and charitable on this next big issue that will be coming up.  It will all depend however on just how reasonable the liberal Democrats in congress and Obama is as to how the people react.  BB
