2019 – May God Bless and Save the United States of America – Our Constitutional Republic !

Boarder Crisis and Border Security

So on Friday, the President called the Democrats in Congress bluff ! He reopened the government for three weeks, as they wanted, to allow for the “compromise” solution to our Constitutional Republic’s immigration challenge to be found. He has stated that if they do not fulfill their elected responsibility that he will declare a national emergency mid February to deal with our border crisis.

“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
(From The New Colossus by Emma Lazarus)

Nowhere in this sentiment is there any indication that we should accept criminals, terrorists, or those who desire to do harm as immigrants to our Constitutional Republic. They are not “yearning to be free.” They are only interested in destroying the freedom and well-being of the citizenry.

Both President Obama and now President Trump have acknowledged the crisis at our southern border. Many believe that this crisis is just the influx of illegal immigrants who are coming for various reasons. Many do not understand that they are not just Mexican nationals. They are also coming from every other Central American nation – Nicaragua, Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala. With the unrest in Venezuela, refugees from South America may begin to migrate through Central America to the United States. Nearly three million have already fled to Brazil and Columbia because of hyper inflation and lack of commodities for their family’s subsistence.

MS-13 (Mara Salvatrucha 13) has been wreaking havoc in the Northern Triangle of Central America. The Northern Triangle comprises the nations of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. MS-13 deals in extortion, human smuggling and drug trafficking. To top off this part of the equation, the government of El Salvador is in collusion with this gang of thugs. These same collusion ills also permeate the country of Honduras.

Life is cheap in Latin America. The region is home to 8% of the world’s population but 38% of the world’s homicides occur there. Many of these murders are committed against women who tend to be more activist in defense of their children.

Guatemala has an extremely high crime rate including sexual assault. Attacks usually involve firearms and motorcycles and can occur any time or any place. Few of these perpetrators are ever brought to justice.

The corrupt government of Daniel Ortega leads the list of ills in Nicaragua. This nation could break out in civil war at any time.

Concerning our present crisis, the politicians of both parties are responsible:

  1. For the two caravans that have marched, the two that are marching and the two more that are planned to march toward the Rio Grande and our southern border.
  2. For our illegal immigrant crisis and the sanctuary cities and states.
  3. For the “DACA Dreamers” and “Anchor Baby” problems.
  4. For not providing for the need for migrant workers.
  5. For dishonoring all those who choose to follow the law and come to our shores legally !

Why, you ask? Because for nearly two decades, Congress after Congress has “kicked the can” down the road rather than deal with the immigration problem. They have promise but they have not delivered. Worst than this they do NOT want to give the opposition party any credit for any part of the solution. Statesmanship could at least improve the situation but then there are very few Statesmen in the Congress who understand the art of compromise. It is high time to fix the problem, which has exacerbated over the years, regardless of who gets the credit. Any member of Congress who is unwilling to come to the table and hammer out the solution over the next three weeks should resign their seat and go home !

The Statue of Liberty was never intended to represent illegal immigration. It was placed near Castle Garden and Ellis Island, the grand portal of immigration, to indicate that those who are “yearning to be free” and want to immigrate to our Constitutional Republic should do so legally !

A nation is not a nation if it has no boundaries or borders. Our southern border was purchased by the blood and treasure of our ancestors. If for no other reason, the cost of its establishment is reason alone for its defense by us today.

To the Congress — The time for “can kicking” is past. It is time to fix this problem for We the People ! And the total solution can only be accomplished in three parts — Barrier, Technology and DACA Protections.

To We the People — No solution, regardless of how well conceived, will work without the coordinated, complete support and enforcement by all levels of government – local, state and national !

May God Bless and Save the United States of America —
Our Constitutional Republic !
