We are witnessing a complete destabilization and disintegration of our southern border — in other words, the fundamental transformation of America from a sovereign state into an open border free-for-all. It is essentially a southern border invasion.Let me share three relevant statements from our Constitution:
Article 1, Section 8: “To provide for the calling forth of the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress insurrections and repel invasions.”
Article 1, Section 10: “No State shall, without consent of Congress, lay any Duty of Tonnage, keep Troops, or Ships of War in time of Peace, enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State or foreign Power, or engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit to delay.”
Article 4, Section 4: “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against invasion.”Our southern border is being invaded and our Constitution tasks the federal government to repel such and protect the states in this union from such an invasion. It also enables sovereign states in this republican form of governance to protect themselves from invasion or such imminent danger.
Instead of looking our for its own citizens, we have a federal government dispersing illegal immigrants on states –Texas, Arizona, and Oklahoma – that all happen to be run by Republican governors. This is unconstitutional and it is unacceptable.
To have a president unilaterally enact by executive order fiat immigration policy that is not widely supported by the American people is unconscionable. We have a president who on his watch has been advertising for food stamp sign-ups in media markets south of the border. There is no debate about the fact that Mexico and Central American countries have been promoting a flood of our border by illegals sensing a coming amnesty – they’re being told of free education, healthcare and college tuition.I think this cartoon expresses what our American children must be thinking.(Hat tip to Stilton Jarlsberg)
Consider the unemployment rate in the black community — near 16 percent and black teenage unemployment over 35 percent. What future do these citizens have in our deplorable inner cities? But that’s obviously not important to the “first back president.”
Just this week the president held a White House photo-op praising illegal immigrant children — what a slap in the face to our American children — especially black children who are lagging behind in failing schools while liberal progressives are denying school choice and charter school programs.
And yes, there are Republicans culpable in this as they align with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce seeking out cheaper labor and with the AFL-CIO, who wants to explode its SEIU union rolls. We are witnessing the selling out of the American dream for Americans in return for self and special interests.
When did elected officials stop caring about Americans first? It happened when we became complacent. And the real lesson from the loss of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor is that many Americans — not all, unfortunately — are no longer accepting the political status quo. They are seeing their wages depressed. They’re unable to fill up their gas tanks. They’re struggling to feed their families. They’re seeing their healthcare premiums rise. They’re watching politicians vie not for their vote, but jockey for the favor of a singular demographic.
I say this to the Hispanic community: whose side are you on? If you are on the side of the rule of law and this Constitutional Republic, then say so. If you are for rewarding the illegal practice of entering America, then that speaks volumes — and I for one will not pander.
