Constitutional Contempt

Its the Immigration Problem, Stupid

This administration has consistently acted in ways that show utter contempt for the Constitution and the Rule of Law as well as the separation of powers. In so doing, this administration has created an environment of mistrust by the citizens of the United States that go to the very heart of our Democratic Republic.

Our nation’s immigration laws are among its most fundamental because they were enacted to protect national security and the lives and livelihoods of Americans. Politicians from both political parties have found every excuse imaginable, and indeed, some excuses that defy logic and reason to explain why our immigration laws cannot, will not or must not be enforced.

The Obama administration has done the most damage to the immigration system, making a mockery of our immigration laws and sending a clear and dangerous message to people from around the world- in the United States violations of our laws will not only be tolerated but rewarded. The sheer statistics are staggering and provide irrefutable evidence of the level of anarchy created by this administration.

The consequences of the failures of our immigration laws have repeatedly enabled terrorists to enter the United States and embed themselves as they went about their deadly preparations to launch deadly terror attacks inside the United States.

Criminal aliens ply their “trades” with impunity in towns and cities across our nation that cost thousands of innocent people their lives.

Those who advocate for the effective enforcement of our immigration laws are not “Anti-Immigrant” but are “Pro-Enforcement.” To be “Pro-Enforcement” is taking a “Pro-Immigrant” position because under our current immigration laws our nation admits more lawful immigrants than all of the other countries on this planet. Our current immigration laws are utterly blind as to race, religion and ethnicity and must finally be effectively enforced!

Tactics of intimidation and deceptive use of language are the stock and trade of the open borders anarchists. Anyone who would dare suggest that our government must exercise caution in admitting aliens into the United States to protect the safety and security of America and Americans are quickly branded “racist” and “nativist.” Their objective is to shut down debate and discourse- the hallmarks of true democracies.

Americans must be willing to stand their ground and not be intimidated by the false accusations- far too much hangs in the balance!

Many people have come to complain that we have become too “Politically Correct” to speak the truth about important issues. My view is that the artful use of language that has been described as examples of political correctness are in fact, examples of Orwellian “Newspeak.”

Political language -- and with variations this is true of all political parties, from Conservatives to Anarchists -- is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.

In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

It is time that when the "compassion card" is brought out- the issue of compassion must first take into account the safety and well-being of America and Americans. There is nothing compassionate about committing suicide!

I urge you to get involved and demand our elected representatives actually represent us- We the People! The information contained in my article is being provided to educate as many of our fellow Americans as possible so that they can ask the right questions and make the appropriate demands on our political leaders and representatives and political candidates.

Please pass this suggestion to as many folks as you can!

America, first and foremost, is comprised of its citizens not rivers parks and cities. We have never had more American citizens, especially minority citizens, living below the poverty level. We now expect that American kids will not do as well as their parents. This is not how we will get America to lead.

Simply stated, #AmericanLivesMatter!

One of the points of contention where political “liberals" and political “conservatives” are concerned is how much government is appropriate, with conservatives demanding less government and liberals generally believing in more government, an issue that should be agreed upon by all reasonable Americans is the need for our government to secure our borders and enforce our immigration laws. This should not be a divisive issue- our immigration laws are completely and utterly blind as to race, religion and ethnicity and were enacted for the two primary purposes of protecting innocent lives and protecting the jobs of American workers.

If ever there was a “No brainer” issue- you would have to believe it would be the fair and effective enforcement of our immigration laws.
