It may be difficult to understand how the leadership of our own government could be behind a push for anarchy, but incredibly this is precisely what we are witnessing — not only in Washington, but among political leaders in some states and cities across the United States. The prime issue behind this lunacy is immigration. Entering the realm of immigration is the equivalent of entering a parallel universe where up is down, left is right and right is wrong.
On December 22, 2014 the newspaper, Arizona Daily Star published an article titled “Tucson ‘dreamers’ line up to get driver’s licenses” that contained the following quote:
Many undocumented immigrants have to drive without licenses to get to work or school or do anything in their daily lives, said Rodriguez, who said he was brought to the United States from Agua Prieta, Sonora, when he was in third grade.
Consider that illegal aliens who should not be in the United States in the first place openly say that they “had to drive” to work or go to school. Illegal aliens are not supposed to be here or be working. However, their attitudes are perfectly normal and understandable considering the statements made by the president of the United States as well as by politicians from both political parties on the federal, state and local levels.
Consider how many politicians in Washington and in cities and states around the United States have blithely stated that illegal aliens are going to drive anyway so that providing them with licenses will enable them to drive safely. Given the terror attacks conducted in Paris, it is clear that the “all clear” has not sounded. We remain at risk of terror attacks and our leaders had better dust off their copies of the 9/11 Commission Report and relating documentation and finally get serious about truly protecting America and Americans.
It is more than mere irony that legislators, also known as “lawmakers,” are quick to justify illegal activities that aliens who have violated our borders and immigration laws engage in, such as driving without licenses, committing identity theft to gain unlawful employment, etc.
These are the same politicians who will seek opportunities to stand before television cameras and microphones to talk about the need to protect America and Americans from terrorism yet they will never, ever make any references to the findings of the 9/11 Commission which was prepared in the wake of the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 to identify the vulnerabilities that enabled those terrorists, as well as others, to enter the United States and embed themselves as they went about their deadly preparations.
Advocates for Comprehensive Immigration Reform ignore the fact that the administration has provided hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens up to age 31 with temporary lawful status and official identity documents without an interview or a field investigation to verify the information contained in their applications leading to a lack of integrity to the process. There is no reliable way to verify the identities of the applicants. There is, consequently, no way to know anything about their backgrounds, affiliations or when, where or how they actually entered the United States. Yet all too many of our “leaders” are more than willing to overlook these issues and the way that this undermines national security….
When we consider words, we must consider that the oaths of office taken by members of our armed forces, law enforcement officers and publicly elected officials do not provide for any “wiggle room” where our Constitution or our laws are concerned.
Our Constitution and our laws are not the equivalent of items on a menu where the patron of a restaurant decides whether or not to order both soup and salad or one or the other.
Oaths of office do not provide the person taking that oath the option of picking and choosing what laws he/she will uphold, defend or enforce. The oaths mandate that the person taking that oath will honor and respect all laws equally.
All too often, politicians who invoke the “Rule of Law” when they claim to be “constitutionalists” will, however, frequently call for changing our laws and ignoring elements of the Constitution that they, or more likely their major campaign contributors, find inconvenient and an impediment to huge profits often at the expense of America and Americans.
Our political leaders must be made to understand that they cannot have it both ways — they either support our Constitution and our laws or they do not.
They either stand with America and Americans or they do not.
