- This article examines seven destructive points being
injected into America by over 20 million illegal immigrants already in
this country and 2 to 3 million legal and illegal immigrants arriving annually.
This massive 'unarmed Army' manifests at an ever increasing speed-the undoing
- For the first time in history, the United States suffered
a crippling attack inside its borders on 9/11. Nine years later, because
our government leaders refuse to protect our southern flank, we are being
attacked by an 'unarmed army' of millions who have invaded our country
by crossing our borders.
- Time Magazine, September 12, 2004, "Who Left the
Door Open?" documented 4,000 illegal aliens crossing nightly and over
three million intruders crossed in 2004. It's an invasion unprecedented
in the history of the United States. Worse, it's being facilitated by our
elected leaders to the highest levels in the White House.
- Even more distressing is a concerted push by both major
parties to assist this army to not only enter our country against our laws,
but also to gain access to everything we have built with the blood, sweat
and tears of American citizens. Illegal aliens tap into $346 billion annually
across 15 federal agencies. (Source: www.thesocialcontract.com , Edwin
- Today, millions of illegal aliens cause accelerating
damage to our schools, hospitals, social programs, highways, language,
sprawl, standard of living and our way of life. Should illegal aliens enjoy
driver's licenses, amnesty, welfare and schooling of their children on
our tax dollars? Just because they came here to work for a better life?
- The sobering reality is that two billion people would
move to America if given a ticket today. However, it's impossible. We are
a nation of laws and we have horrific problems of unemployment at 15 million
people, $12 trillion debt, collapsing hospitals, diseases and growing language
- Somehow, the media and the 'elite' of this country have
forced us into this accelerating crisis. Polls show 70% of Americans want
illegal immigration stopped and serious reductions in legal immigration
down to fewer than 100,000 per year.
- Astoundingly, 10 percent of Mexico now lives in our country.
Fully 75 percent of all drugs cross over from Mexico. They send home hard
currency of $24 billion to Mexico, $25 billion to Latin America, $16 billion
to Asia thus draining our country. In short, illegal immigration degrades
this country on multiple levels.
- We MUST create a dialog on the future prospects of our
nation by addressing seven major points: If you own a home, you maintain
a door. You welcome guests after they knock and you lock it to keep out
unwanted incursions. Just as every house needs a door, every country needs
a border to maintain its right to privacy, self-maintenance and personal
freedom. Our nation's door has been invaded by over 10 million people who
broke the latch and marched in as if they had the right to such a crime.
They continue at 1 million per year.
- However, this nation provides the 'rule of law' as the
most important brick in the foundation of our constitution. The 'rule of
law' allows our freedom, our integrity and our right to choose what and
whom we want or don't want in our nation. We don't want terrorists. We
don't want border crashers who bring drugs. We don't want illegal aliens
who suppress wages, over run our schools, usurp our language and overwhelm
our social services.
- Illegal immigration hurts America's poor. In a recent
account in the New York Times, black children suffered 50 percent greater
poverty in the past 10 years due to immigration. Illegal immigrants compete
for jobs normally done by America's poor. A study by the Center for Immigration
Studies wrote, "Mexican immigration is overwhelmingly unskilled and
it's hard to find an economic argument for unskilled immigration because
it tends to reduce wages for U.S. workers."
- Cheap labor from illegal immigration is not 'cheap.'
It's subsidized by all of us in the form of our tax dollars paying for
their services. It makes a few employers wealthy at the expense of all
of us. The National Academy of Sciences found "...a significant fiscal
drain of $7,000 per student per year paid for by U.S. tax dollars."
- These newcomers do not respect our English language.
Adding more salt into our national wound of this invasion, there is not
a single bilingual country in the world that is at peace with itself. Dozens
of languages cause educational confusion, conflict and violence. When people
move to this country, but maintain their language, their culture and their
old loyalties, it's a recipe for the undoing of our nation.
- With that demise, our cohesive national fabric shreds
as ethnic ghettoes advance across our nation with rituals such as female
genital mutilation, cock fighting and violent groups espousing clashing
cultures. Too many unskilled, uneducated, non-English speaking people living
in too much poverty will not advance our nation. The Center for Immigration
Studies points out; "The lower educational attainment of immigrants
persists across generations as two thirds of immigrant workers lack a high
school diploma." Democracy is a delicate form of government that demands
an educated populace with similar moral and ethical standards and a single
- And finally, illegal immigrants crossing our borders
without being health screened have brought us 7,000 new cases of leprosy
in the past nine years. Additionally, they brought 16,000 cases of incurable
(multiple drug resistant) tuberculosis, thousands of cases of hepatitis,
head lice, Chagas Disease and Exotic New Castle. Since 1.1 million illegal
alien children attend U.S. schools, our children are at risk.
- "The one absolutely certain way of bringing this
nation to ruin, or preventing all possibility of its continuing as a nation
at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities."
-- President Teddy Roosevelt, 1902.
- Without a national debate on illegal immigration, our
country will continue its downward spiral into conditions resembling the
- Their numbers will burgeon from 10 million to 20 million
and beyond. If we don't take action today, we won't be able to take action
