A reasonable argument about Immigration…..


Newspapers simply won’t publish letters to the editor which they either deem politically incorrect (read below) or which do not agree with the philosophy they’re pushing on the public. This woman wrote a great letter to the editor that should have been published; but, with your help, it will get published via cyberspace!

From: “David LaBonte”

My wife, Rosemary, wrote a wonderful letter to the editor of the OC Register which, of course, was not printed. So, I decided to “print” it myself by sending it out on the Internet. Pass it along if you feel so inclined. Written in response to a series of letters to the editor in the Orange County Register:

Dear Editor:
So many letter writers have based their arguments on how this land is made up of immigrants. Ernie Lujan for one, suggests we should tear down the Statue of Liberty because the people now in question aren’t being treated the same as those who passed through Ellis Island and other ports of entry.

Maybe we should turn to our history books and point out to people like Mr. Lujan why today’s American is not willing to accept this new kind of immigrant any longer. Back in 1900 when there was a rush from all areas of Europe to come to the United States, people had to get off a ship and stand in a long line in New York and be documented. Some would even get down on their hands and knees and kiss the ground.

They made a pledge to uphold the laws and support their new country in good and bad times. They made learning English a primary rule in their new American households and some even changed their names to blend in with their new home.

They had waved good-bye to their birth place to give their children a new life and did everything in their power to help their children assimilate into one culture.
Nothing was handed to them. No free lunches, no welfare, no labor laws to protect them. All they had were the skills and craftsmanship they had brought with them to trade for a future of prosperity.

Most of their children came of age when World War II broke out. My father fought alongside men whose parents had come straight over from Germany , Italy , France and Japan . None of these 1st generation Americans ever gave any thought about what country their parents had come from.
They were Americans fighting Hitler, Mussolini and the Emperor of Japan . They were defending the United States of America as one people.

When we liberated France , no one in those villages were looking for the French-American or the German-American or the Irish-American. The people of France saw only Americans. And we carried one flag that represented one country.
Not one of those immigrant sons would have thought about picking up another country’s flag and waving it to represent who they were. It would have been a disgrace to their parents who had sacrificed so much to be here.
These immigrants truly knew what it
meant to be an American. They stirred the melting pot into one Red, White and Blue bowl.

And here we are with a new kind of immigrant who wants the same rights
and privileges. Only they want to
achieve it by playing with a different
set of rules, one that includes the entitlement card and a guarantee of being faithful to their mother country.
I’m sorry, that’s not what being an American is all about. I believe that the immigrants who landed on Ellis Island in the early 1900’s deserve better than that for all the toil, hard work and sacrifice in raising future generations to create a land that has become a beacon for those legally searching for a better life.
I think they would be appalled that they are being used as an example by those waving foreign country flags.
And for that suggestion about taking down the Statue of Liberty , it happens to mean a lot to the citizens who are voting on the immigration bill. I wouldn’t start talking about dismantling the United States just yet.

GRA089. MELILLA, 15/10/2014.- En torno a un centenar de inmigrantes permanecen encaramados en la valla fronteriza entre Melilla y Marruecos y se niegan a bajar como les indica la Guardia Civil, que mantiene un despliegue de seguridad en la zona de Villa Pilar, entre el aeropuerto de Melilla y el cementerio musulmán de Sidi Guariach.Numerosas patrullas de la Guardia Civil han formado un cordón de vehículos a pie de valla en un tramo amplio del perímetro, donde los subsaharianos permanecen desde pasadas las 06:30 horas, cuando se registró un intento de entrada masivo protagonizado por más de 200 inmigrantes.EFE/F.

3 Other Presidents did it, why not now….


No one in either party has the courage to do this today

What did Presidents Hoover, Truman, and Eisenhower have in common?

(This is something that should be of great interest for you to pass around.

I didn’t know of this until it was pointed out to me.)

Back during the great depression, Herbert Hoover ordered

the deportation of ALL illegal aliens

in order to make jobs available to American citizens

that desperately needed work.

Harry Truman deported over two million illegal aliens after WWII

to create jobs for returning veterans.

In 1954 Dwight Eisenhower deported 13 million illegal Mexicans.

The program was called Operation Wetback.

It was done so WWII and Korean War veterans

would have a better chance at jobs.

It took two years, but they deported them!

Now, if they could deport the illegal aliens back then,

they could surely do it today.

If you have doubts about the veracity of this information,

enter Operation Wetback into

your favorite search engine and confirm it for yourself.

Why, you might ask, can’t they do this today?

Actually the answer is quite simple.

Hoover, Truman, and Eisenhower were men of honor,

not untrustworthy politicians looking for votes from the illegals!

Reminder:

Don’t forget to pay your taxes –

12 to 20 million illegal aliens – are depending on it … and

that’s why they all VOTE for the incumbent thieves!!

Brewer: Border not Secure, Drug Cartels ‘Ready to Come Across’…..


Gov. Jan Brewer, R-Ariz., says she has first-hand evidence Mexican drug cartels are on the verge of breaching her state’s border.

“I was just down there last week,” Brewer said in an interview on Fox News.

“I was with the National Guard. I was in a Blackhawk. I saw them on the other side, the drug cartels, ready to come across in the middle of the night. It is not secure.”

Brewer said the border is not secure, the fences aren’t completed and there isn’t enough law enforcement on the ground.
Brewer says any immigration reform legislation will stall until the situation is rectified.

“The ranchers will tell you, if you sit down and talk to them, that they’re fearful, that the border patrol is too far north,” she said.

“They need to get closer to the border because they let them go so far, and then they just sort of blend in, and they’re destroying their land and destroying their cattle, they’re destroying their water.

They’re frustrated. And I believe that until the ranchers, law enforcement, is satisfied and they tell us that this border is secured, there’s not going to be a whole lot of movement.”

Border Patrol agent killed, another wounded in Arizona…..


A U.S. Border Patrol agent was shot dead and another wounded while on patrol on Tuesday in a drug smuggling corridor in Arizona, near the border with Mexico, authorities said.
Sheriff’s deputies were called to the scene in Naco, southeast of Tucson, at 1:33 a.m. local time (4:33 a.m. EDT/0833 GMT) by the Border Patrol following reports that one of its agents had been shot, Cochise County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Carol Capas said.
Deputies found one dead agent and another with non-life-threatening injuries, Capas said.
“As they were walking up the trail, they reported taking gunfire,” Capas said. “We have unknown suspect or suspects at this point.”
FBI agents are investigating the shooting, authorities said. Officials did not identify the deceased agent, pending notification of the agent’s family.
Despite the construction of a tall, steel fence along the border with Mexico, the town of Naco remains a corridor for marijuana trafficking and human smuggling.
Capas said the agents were assigned to the Brian A. Terry Border Patrol Station, named last month after the agent whose murder in the line of duty was linked to a botched U.S. operation to track guns smuggled to Mexico.
