"The ongoing migration of persons to the United States in violation of our laws is a serious national problem detrimental to the interests of the United States."
-- Ronald Reagan (1911-2004), 40th U.S. President (1981-1989) (
Presidential Proclamation 4865, September 29, 1981)

January 21, 2005


For all those who voted for G.W. Bush thinking he was interested in the security of the U.S., it should be painfully clear now that Bush is more interested in pacifying the craving of his big business buddies for cheap labor than in securing our borders to protect us from terrorist attacks.  Bush is even less interested in maintaining the rights of U.S. citizens and allowing us to have a say in who comes here, or how they get here, legally or illegally (and heaven forbid we look at the negative impact the masses of foreigners have on us financially and socially).

President Bush has made it clear that he is bound and determined to obliterate our southern border, and the opinions or desires of American citizens, and Congress for that matter, be damned.  Bush is on the verge of bringing on a new age of the imperial presidency.

Good ol' G.W. thinks our current immigration policy isn't 'compassionate' enough.  I guess that's code for 'not enough uneducated, unskilled laborers are getting through that are willing to work for dirt.'  In typical 'politicaleze', Bush claims we are less secure due to the current immigration policies (he's talking about the policies his administration refuses to enforce, thus allowing 10 to 15 million illegals to enter the country and remain here untouched).  Bush seems to think we'd be more secure if we'd just let a whole bunch more illegals from south of the border come flooding in here with a token acceptance he calls 'temporary worker status'.  I think that's code for 'we aren't bothering to stop the invasion, so lets act like we actually want them to come pouring over the border so we don't look so pathetically incompetent.'  This is Bush's take on reality.  It's about as distorted, dysfunctional, and unconstitutional as his policy on Iraq.

Am I the only one who sees a problem with Bush's logic?  I don't think so.  One great quote commenting on Bush's plan came from Ira Mehlman, media director for the Federation for American Immigration Reform.  Mr. Mehlman said, "Bush's proposal is a great plan if your objective is to destroy the middle class in the United States."  This isn't the only evidence I've seen that I'm not the only one who sees the dangers and stupidity in Bush's plan to overrun our country with foreigners who don't wish to assimilate.  There is a strong contingent in the House of Representatives that is solidly against Bush's plan to undermine U.S. sovereignty.  Hopefully these representatives of the people will do their constitutional duty and prevent Bush from economically destroying the U.S. while opening the door to terrorists.

The argument that these illegals are doing jobs Americans won't doesn't stand up to honest evaluation.  If we weren't flooded with illegals, employers would have to raise wages to attract workers, and then Americans would take those jobs.  Lower income people making the effort to climb the socio-economic ladder would take these jobs as they worked to improve themselves and make their way up.  As it is currently, these low-paying jobs are not stepping stones to economic advancement but guarantees of continued impoverishment.  The wages for these jobs will never grow as long as desperate outsiders invade our land, literally stealing jobs from citizens.  And as long as businesses encourage this behavior, and the government refuses to enforce our immigration laws and protect our citizens, we will have a perpetual problem until we become 'Meximerica', a third world country.

For those that are concerned about paying higher costs for consumables if illegals were forced to leave and higher wages were paid out, you would pay more for some produce items.  But remember this: You already pay more in taxes for educating the children of these illegals, as well as for all the social services these people collect, than you would if citizens and legal aliens were paid higher wages for the work illegals do for pennies.  One reason so many hospitals are closing is because of the massive influx of illegals that can't get medical coverage, and thus go for 'free' medical care at our hospitals (as hospitals aren't allowed to turn away non-paying customers).  Yes, you pay for that.  Personally, I'd rather pay an extra 10 cents for a tomato than an extra 10 dollars in taxes to support illegals.  No matter how you slice it, American citizens are on the losing end of this if Bush gets his way and the 'immivasion' is allowed to not only continue, but to grow.  There's no other way to say it but like this: George W. Bush must be stopped from implementing his insane plan to devastate the U.S. politically, economically and culturally.
