This country was not built on diversity and multiculturalism, the failed liberal ideology. We are certainly diverse enough and Americans come from many cultures. For generations every immigrant to this country learned English, American history, celebrated American traditions, and became a part of the fabric of our exceptional society while honoring traditions from their ethnic backgrounds and former countries they left behind.
Left wing ideology with the help of Marxist college professors, Hollywood, and the main stream media is determined to change that. We are suddenly an “evil empire” with a heavy burden of pass transgressions and Americans should be ashamed of their history, their Christian religion, wealth earned through hard work and entrepreneurial ethic, and of the myriad of accomplishments that have saved and improved the lives of billions on this planet.
The Constitution has become a “living, breathing document” that old men from long time ago wrote and is no longer applicable to our changing life where “social justice” and redistribution of wealth, stealing from producers and giving to takers, decisions made by Saul Alinsky type street organizers, are pressing goals at every level of society. Our laws are now just mere suggestions for minions to follow, the elite in power decides what is good for our bodies and our lives even though it violates our Constitutional rights.
We are committing societal suicide through environmentalism gone berserk, demographics, degradation of education via communist indoctrination in schools, insane illegal immigration policies, abortion, out of control fiscal and monetary policies, unraveling of the family unit, degradation of the institution of marriage, and destruction of our Christian faith.
Liberal groups have pushed multiculturalism and diversity heavily in the last 30 years. We have legalized with little scrutiny people coming from third world nations based on their Islamic faith, refugee status, skin color, gender, ideology, sexuality, and economic background. We have given student visas at an accelerated pace, hoping that smart, college graduates would stay in the U.S. and contribute to society in a positive way.
President Bill Clinton instructed border guards to wave those on student visas through as expediently as possible. And the trees we planted are finally bearing fruit. Those who wish us harm have attacked, killed, and maimed American citizens because we have stopped enforcing the current immigration laws and border control crossing. The government even sued states who tried to do their job and enforce the border.
As Marinka Peschmann said in a recent article, “If the Gang of Eight’s so called immigration reform legislation becomes law, expect the number of illegal aliens that will be legalized in a broken, crime riddled agency, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), to explode.” http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/54653
The Government Accountability Office warning that USCIS does not operate using the “best practices, is an understatement. The recent Boston Marathon bomber left the country for six months for Chechnya, a hotbed of Muslim terrorists, yet it did not raise a flag because his name was misspelled on the flight manifesto. Mohammed Atta, the 19th hijacker of 9/11 got his green card in the mail at the college where he learned to fly a plane but not land it, six months after the bombing of the Twin Towers. There is a backlog of 4 million legal immigrants who are waiting patiently in their countries for resolution of their visas so that they can come to the U.S. legally. Jumping the border illegally and breaking the law is not an option.
Giving amnesty to 11 million illegal aliens as proposed by the Gang of Eight is a terrible idea because family members, stepchildren, gang members, those already deported twice (p. 614), and drunk drivers (2 offenses) would be allowed to apply. The gang members need only to “renounce” all association with the criminal street gang and they are welcome into U.S. The Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act (http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/54471) stated clearly this gang waiver on page 606. Habitual drunk drivers are inadmissible after three offenses.
Once the newly minted “Registered Provisional Immigrant” is secured in his/her legal residency, the chain migration will commence. I described the economic and societal implications of unchecked chain migration in my recent articles here

The Associated Press described in an article about 19 employees following lawsuit how ICE agents were “disciplined” for doing their jobs. Kris Kobach said, “Their political superiors are ordering them to violate federal law.” (http://www.azcentral.com/news/politics/articles/2012/08/23/20120823ice-employees-file-lawsuit-stop-new-immigration-rule.html?nclick_check=1)
Marco Rubio told Rush Limbaugh in a recent interview that the status quo of immigration is unsustainable. He also said that immigration amnesty will come first and border enforcement later.
We tried amnesty for 3 million illegals in 1986 and it did not work so well, serious border enforcement was quickly forgotten, that is why we are at this point again, having to deal with 11 million more illegal aliens, drawn by the lure of economic prosperity, generous welfare system, and the possibility of Reconquista. After all, the “gringos” are not having enough children to replace the dying population.
It seems that, if the immigration laws on the books are not enforced properly and the inefficiency of government has created such a back-logged status quo, the new 844-page immigration bill would derive no benefit to the American people, it would just create a new, bloated bureaucracy, draining more taxpayer dollars into a bottomless sinkhole. Shouldn’t Americans have a say-so in who is admitted into their country? Why are Americans from various groups not allowed to testify before this amnesty bill is hurried on through?
The truth is, the eight senators who sponsored this bill are making it easier for asylum seekers/law breakers like the Boston Marathon bombers to come to the U.S. (http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/54701)
Jim Carafano, Heritage Foundation fellow, wrote on the Foundry, “Good immigration and border security policies play an important, but supporting role. Generally, the rule is, if you have good policies that facilitate legal immigration and travel while providing for public safety and security – they will serve well to help thwart terrorist travel.” http://blog.heritage.org/2013/04/20/the-boston-bombings-and-immigration/?utm_source=Newsletter&utm_medium=Email&utm_campaign=Morning%2BBell
The web of groups that lobby on behalf of illegal immigrants is quite extensive. I wrote last year in my book, “Liberty on Life Support,” (http://www.amazon.com/Liberty-on-Life-Support-ebook/dp/B008CL3G3M) about such a group, Casa de Maryland. Casa de Maryland board alumni include Cecilia Munoz, White House director of intergovernmental affairs, and Thomas Perez, assistant attorney for civil rights and recent nominee for the Labor Secretary post.
Maryland is usually the first state in the nation that passes anti-American, pro-Agenda 21, pro-illegal immigration laws in the nation. It passed the Dream Act, in-state tuition for illegal immigrants’, college bound children. It may seem insignificant since only a few hundred illegal aliens would benefit from the law, however, Gustavo Torres, Executive Director of Casa de Maryland wants to take the Dream Act fight nationally because deporting 400,000 illegals annually is an insufferable number of potential union dues-paying workers and Democrat voters.
Casa de Maryland is located in a mansion purchased for $1 from Gregg Clickstein, and has a budget of $6 million. Republican State Delegate Pat McDonough objects to the local, state, and federal money funding the house itself, to the legal and other services provided to 20,000 illegal immigrants annually. “Gustavo has created a sanctuary state… The Governor does his bidding, the politicians who control power in the State of Maryland do his bidding…And his success has caused financial and personal heartbreak for the State of Maryland. They are a globally significant organization.”
Gregg Clickstein naively and unintentionally describes what is wrong with the illegal immigration lobby. “This nation of immigrants… and this new wave of immigrants, and having the opportunity to assimilate and be great Americans. It just really touched me.”
The statement sounds idealistic and noble, however, most illegal immigrants have no intention of assimilating, of becoming great Americans. They isolate themselves in Spanish speaking enclaves or Arabic speaking mosques, bringing their native countries culture of poverty, corruption, and religious oppression with them.
Illegal immigrants believe in bigger government and welfare as a source of wellbeing and success. They become new loyal Democrat voters who could ultimately shift the balance of power in our country to Democrats, without any checks and balances. http://www.politico.com/story/2013/04/immigration-reform-could-upend-electoral-college-90478.html?fb_action_ids=597757090234936&fb_action_types=og.likes&fb_ref=.UXcVKkPk9Xw.send&fb_source=aggregation&fb_aggregation_id=288381481237582
We are a nation of immigrants but we followed patiently the law of the land, learned English, and assimilated into America.
