Seal the Border!
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
I’m not going to sit here and say to the President, my US Senators, and
my Congressmen that if they want me to support the new Immigration
Reform Bill, first build a fence along the border. No, I’m not going to
I AM going to say is… We don’t NEED the new Immigration Reform Bill!
Not at all. We don’t even NEED a guest worker program! Americans will
gladly pay more for their produce if it means that can continue to
maintain America as an English-speaking nation. Heck, the money we save
on the welfare services we now give, free, to the illegal immigrants
would off-set the higher prices for produce at the market! No, we don’t
need either of those things.
What we DO NEED is enforcement of the immigration laws we have on the books today!
secure the border we need a fence… a physical fence. Not some piss-ant
virtual fence with sensors and cameras and fly-overs by unarmed drone
aircraft. All that does is complicate the process. When the illegals
cross over they still have to be hunted down and sent back. So, stop
them from ever crossing that border with an honest to goodness double
fence with a patrol road between the fences.
Harsh? I don't think so. But -- when national security is at stake, harshness may be the way to go!
the new Immigration Reform Bill soon to be before the US Senate is an
Amnesty Bill. No matter how you slice it, no matter how much perfume
they sprinkle over it, it still stinks to high heavens. And you know
what??? They’re going to pass that abomination of a bill over our
protests if we don’t rattle the cages of the Senators in Washington, but
good! Actually, I am satisfied that if there is any way, by hook or by
crook, the two parties, in cahoots with each other, will see that this
bill is passed.
We have the closest thing to a rogue government
in Washington today as this nation has ever had. They are totally
unresponsive to the citizens of the nation. I don’t believe they cannot
hear us, or that they have misinterpreted what we are telling them
about this immigration bill. I believe they hear us, loud and clear, and
simply don’t give a damn what you and I want. They intend to do what
they want instead. That behavior, dear reader, is the definition of a
As an American citizen I am frustrated beyond
all measure at what passes for a government in Washington, DC today! It
is a pathetic bunch of political hacks unfit to run for dogcatcher, let
alone an office representing my interests in the nation’s seat of
Alas, this is the government we get when that form
of Marxism we call Political Correctness takes over a country. The
truth is shown the door for fear of offending someone… anyone! So, our
Congresspersons, our Senators, and even our President will lie to us
and tell themselves they are “protecting” us. They’ll convince
themselves that they know best what is good for us and they will simply
tune us out! That is what this government has done. Tuned us out!
you know what Southerners from 1828 up to April of 1861 felt like!
Their government (the US government) had tuned them out, too. We all
know how that ended. We Southerners LOST OUR COUNTRY! And, guess
what??? If this continues we are going to lose our country AGAIN, this
time along with the rest of America! That’s how serious this is.
content to lie down and rollover, I intend to rattle cages in DC. At
least, if we lose and the "Amnesty Bill" passes, I will know that I DID
make an effort to contribute to the forces trying to stop it. That’s not
much consolation, I know, but it is all I, WE, have these days.
