AN ISSUE OF “NATIONAL SECURITY”
by Michael Gaddy, ©2015
Yesterday, in a widely-publicized dustup between Univision anchor Jorge Ramos and Trump, Ramos intimated that Trump (and I presume any other candidate) could not win election without the support of the Latino community. The political implications of such an allegation are alarming. If that is indeed true, this country has been hijacked with the complete cooperation of both major political parties, for neither one has made the slightest effort to control our borders over the past four decades, especially in the midst of continued war. Even more alarming is that the realistic number of illegals is over 30 million rather than the accepted figure of 11 million.
This has been facilitated by our government in several ways, one of which is making it darn near impossible for good people to legally enter this country but relatively easy for those who wish us harm or engage with our welfare system.
Stepping over a fallen barbed wire fence in Texas, Arizona, New Mexico or California is simple and less time-consuming than years and years of paperwork and red tape. Of course, if you want to come here and you happen to be from a country in White Europe, the task becomes impossible.
A few months back I sent an email to Jeffrey Bennett, the publisher at a website known as the Federal Observer, in which we discussed how Trump had again brought this issue to the front burner. I mentioned to Jeff an article I had written shortly after returning from the Arizona border during the month of April 2005 while serving in a leadership role with the Minuteman Project.
Today, Jeff has seen fit to reprint that article at his website. We both feel that even though it is ten years old, it is probably more relevant today than ever. You can find that article at the link below. Jeff has chosen to address the illegal immigration issue with a full broadside today. My article is currently the second one down, and all deserve a read.
