Most threatening internal American issue since slavery

In the past week, since the Supreme Court upheld a key component of Arizona’s anti-illegal immigration law S.B. 1070, millions of illegal alien migrants spoke defiantly against the law and grew more vociferous in their collective voice to break the law. 
 
Over eight million of them work full time jobs in our communities across the nation.  Over 20 million of them reside in our country in violation of our laws.  They siphon our medical, educational, welfare and prison systems out of multiple billions of dollars.
 
They benefit only rich corporations that hire those illegals, yet the average American taxpayer subsidizes illegals’ presence in this country.  The rich benefit while citizens pay their bills.  The U.S. Chamber of Commerce supports illegals and presses for an endless stream of them.  Notice that stream continues year in and year out for the past 30 years.
 
Nothing has stopped it.  Not our 14 million unemployed nor our seven million underemployed! Not our devastated educational systems faltering beyond repair in California and everywhere illegal alien children collect.
 
The U.S. Congress continues to kick the can down the road.  Speaker of the House John Boehner nullifies, at every juncture, any attempt to pass E-Verify to force employers to check immigration status.  The House and Senate continue to pump no less than 100,000 legal green card holding foreign workers into this country every 30 days, 12 months of the year.  Corporations force additional H-2B Silicon Valley visas to insource jobs away from millions of Americans.  Farmers and ranchers cheat the H-2A visas that would give them unlimited legal farm labor in favor of illegal alien labor—but cheaper and off the books.  Finally, the past five presidents failed to enforce our immigration employment laws at every intersection.
 
It’s as if, our presidents and Congress want to take this country down to its knees.  No amount of logic, no amount of suffering by our middle class, no amount of poverty will make our leaders stop this massive illegality thriving within our country.
 
Result: we are losing our national identity.  Last week, Muslims in Detroit stoned peaceful marching Christians and the police arrested the Christians rather than go after the Muslims who were clearly breaking the law.  Mexicans continue their takeover of  Los Angeles, Chicago and other major cities by displacing our language and customs in our own country. Arabic grows in its majority language status in Detroit and even in Washington DC from influx of Middle Eastern immigrants that refuse to meld into the American mosaic.
 
Legal and illegal immigration constitute the greatest internal issue of our country since slavery at the signing of the U.S. Constitution.
I talked with Bromwell Ault, director of the www.centerforpublicconscience.org  in West Palm Beach, Florida.  He writes and publishes the “Matters of Conscience” quarterly.
He addressed Florida’s rampant illegal immigration problem with his local paper.
 
“Your recent coverage of this topic, like most others, fails to adequately inform the reader of the importance of this issue,” Ault said.  “Which could well turn out to be the most threatening internal issue we have faced since slavery.
                  
“Although there are multiple similarities between them, far too many Americans view immigration as a question that should and will be solved by Congress. They are dead right about "should" and tragically wrong about "will", as every congress and president since the Reagan amnesty of 1986 has "kicked the can down the road" by refusing to enforce existing law. This is a deeply flawed choice that destroys the balance between our three branches of government that is spelled out and required by our Constitution.
                  
“Immigration, like slavery, is not just one issue. Both raise serious constitutional, economic, political and social questions which, of course, our political representatives are unwilling to address because it is impossible to discuss immigration sensibly and openly without causing offense or creating opposition to one or more constituencies. As votes are easily lost by having firm opinions, the tactic of choice is to speak as generally as possible and to defer any real action.
                  
“This is not new. Our founding fathers and their successors dodged the slavery bullet for seventy years during which time the money and power that surrounded the issue grew ever larger until it was no longer possible to be contained. We are engaged in the same process today with immigration with the exception that the numbers today (i.e., population, money, votes, taxpayer funding, etc.) are exponentially larger than they were 150 years ago.
                  
“The American voter deserves a better presentation of our growing immigration crisis than has so far been made available from government, the main stream media, both major political parties and our educational and religious institutions.”
 
Ironically, Obama enhances and supports illegal migration.  Congress does everything to continue it.  No matter how bad it gets for Americans, their own leaders will continue import 100,000 legal immigrants every 30 days until our national identity, language, educational systems cannot and will not remain American.
 
Worse, the American people sit, stand, grow fat and lethargic year after year as their national identity morphs into multiple countries and languages.
 
Look at what is happening and will happen.  We continue on course to add 100 million immigrants within 38 years—by 2050.  (Source: PEW Hispanic Report, “US Population Projections” Fogel/Martin at www.FAIRUS.org and U.S. Census Bureau)
 
In a five minute astoundingly simple yet brilliant video, “Immigration, Poverty, and Gum Balls”, Roy Beck, director of www.numbersusa.ORG, graphically illustrates the impact of overpopulation.  Take five minutes to see for yourself:
 
“Immigration by the numbers—off the chart” by Roy Beck
This 10 minute demonstration shows Americans the results of unending mass immigration on the quality of life and sustainability for future generations: in a word “Mind boggling!”  www.NumbersUSA.org
 
But the kind of America that you see in the second demonstration does not have to happen. You can prevent it by working with www.NumbersUSA.org and www.CapsWeb.org and become part of nearly 1.5 million Americans who send in pre written faxes to force your Congressional critters to change course.  Do it today and tell all your friends.
