The Donald Trump Immigration Reform plan has three core principles.
I chose to write an open letter about illegal immigration in hopes that even if one person hears me I might make a difference.
Today I heard a clip from Senator John McCain saying something like, “we’re going to close the borders – then move forward with immigration reform.” I think to myself, why are we letting these law breakers stay and why does McCain condone such illegal behavior if he loves his country?
Then I watched a video of talk show host Joyce Kaufman at 850 WFTL speak out about illegal immigration. Kaufman passionately gave a speech about how we have the right to defend our rights as American citizens.
After listening to these two people a genuine sadness enveloped me. It was this minority woman — after declaring her love for this country — who keenly stood before us and said, you have to make it your business.
I had to agree with her that if I wanted third world behavior — like selling food from their push-carts or out of a car trunk in my area — I’d move to a third world country. No one talks about the identity theft occurring. No one talks about instant citizenship for the babies (Other countries don’t offer it. Why do we?).
When did my America turn into this? At what point did I realize as a white person I wasn’t allowed to speak out in protest of what the illegal immigrants are doing to my country for fear of being called a racist? …or an enemy combatant?
Below is my letter — to anyone who will listen.

I urge you to go to every last link — you never see links to videos in one place that scream individually and collectively to your American way of life and patriotism the way each and every one of them listed here will.
My letter titled, “An open letter to our leader(s)”…
I saw today that the local U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested 72 foreign nationals in the Chicago area in a sweep that ended last week. (Isn’t that where the Prez has a house?)
The report indicated that the 72 arrestees comprised of 65 men and seven women, represented the countries of China, Colombia, Czech Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, India, Israel, Jamaica, Lithuania, Macedonia, Mexico, Peru, Poland, Russia and South Korea. (what? No foreign nationals from say… Kenya were arrested?)
Living out here in Arizona, I’ve always thought ICE was an urban legend.
So let’s talk about that Arizona border.
In case you haven’t heard, we’re having a bit of a border problem down here in Arizona.
And now that those folks out there in DC have been chirping about amnesty (What do you call it? Oh yeah, immigration R-E-F-O-R-M) the border traffic is stepping up. Apparently no one wants to be left out of the deal of free food, free medical, free schooling, free money, free housing, etc. (Currently, in the US, 1 in 4 are of foreign born parents)
Washington, DC doesn’t seem to be aware of how bad the problem is… so I’ve provided some videos for you to watch. It’s unfortunate though, that sites have been allegedly blocked by the government as the screen shot below suggests. (Maybe if there was porn on these sites it wouldn’t be blocked, huh?) The screen shot below is from a site called borderinvasionpics.com.
So… if any of you know some feds over there in DC I’d be grateful if you’d watch the videos for them and pass on what you’ve seen and learned.
These first two videos are an investigative report on US border security down here in Arizona. It was produced by WSBTV out of Atlanta. (It’s now confirmed that at least one news agency still reports the news.)
This next YouTube video is a documentary type video showing — contrary to what the media tells us — what the Arizona border fence really looks like (thus…why we have that awkward problem with illegals)
This next website, “BorderInvasionPics.com” actually shows videos of illegals coming across the Arizona border through hidden motion sensitive cameras. Its’ pretty cool actually. If you saw this every night on the evening news you wouldn’t be quite so casual when the subject came up (then click back to the home page to read/see more)
This video speaks for itself — what the illegals really think of us and our country.
This last video is talk show host Joyce Kaufman of WFTL giving her thoughts about illegal immigration before a gathering in Jupiter, Florida.
On September 17, 2009 an amendment was introduced into the House of Representatives to change the “Immigration and Nationality Act.”
Titled the “Senior Citizenship Act of 2009” it will exempt certain elderly persons from demonstrating an understanding of the English language and the history, principles, and form of government of the United States as a requirement for naturalization, and to permit certain other elderly persons to take the history and government examination in a language of their choice.
If passed, this Act shall take effect immediately on the date of the enactment and shall apply to applications for naturalization pending on or after such date.
The Bill was introduced by Congressman Jerrold Nadler* (D-NY). Co-sponsoring the Bill are Representatives Jose’ Serrano (D-NY); Bob Filner (D-CA); Anthony Weiner (D-NY); Barney Frank (D-MA); Pete Stark (D-CA); Jim Moran (D-VA); Luis Gutierrez (D-IL); and Eliot Engel (D-NY).
The “Senior Citizenship Act of 2009” has been referred to the Committee on the Judiciary.
Read the Bill: HR 3604
*BIO: Democratic Congressman Jerrold Nadler of New York introduced the above bill. Born in 1947, he has served as a US House Representative since 1992. From 1977-1992 he served as a member of the New York state assembly. Nadler denounced a Republican Amendment adopted by the House of Representatives to deny all federal funds to ACORN.
The media continues to tell us that we need immigrants to do dirty jobs Americans’ won’t “do.” Are Americans unwilling to do those jobs or are they being pushed out of them?
Watch Mike Rowe’s Dirty Jobs and decide for yourself who’s willing to do those dirty jobs.
This year President Obama said: I guarantee you will need an “education.”
I beg to differ with President Obama. And so should you.
But this isn’t just about President Obama. This is about the way we’ve begun to think as a country.
The foundation of this country was built on the integrity of performing an honest days work, superior workmanship and the quality of ones’ character. A mans word meant something and he returned what he borrowed. Always.
That’s our prestigious history, yet I never hear any emphasis on the characteristics that made this country the greatest in the world.
Granted, a formal “education” has it’s place and it’s a noble goal set by families and individuals. Likewise, alot of Americans — not formally educated — have contributed to the historical building blocks that has made our country the greatest. “Smarts” trumps a formal “education.” Smarts is what built this country.
Have you ever watched a construction site? Do you think those are college or ivy league “educated” people swinging those hammers?
Someone needs to swing the hammer, install the phone line, build the bridge, dig the ditch, fix the road, milk the cows and unplug the sewer line. The list is endless of Americans we need to hold down those jobs that don’t need a college degree.
I saw a short interview with Dirty Jobs host Mike Rowe. Dirty Jobs is a cable television show that gives viewers a glimpse of different dirty jobs across America. As a guest, Mike Rowe performs the spotlighted job for a day.
I applaud him.
Mike Rowe is the first person in this country who has publicly stood up for those people who are silently in the background keeping this country running. Those dirty jobs that don’t necessarily need a college education to perform.
Those jobs are equally as important in running this country. The people are educated who are doing those jobs although they may not have gone to college.
Those jobs will never go away.
When did the idea slip into our culture — without any dispute — that Americans won’t do “those” jobs?
Our own government is suggesting citizenship to illegal immigrants in our country on the pretense that they are the only people who will do the work. I suppose it sounds better than to say illegals have permeated the employment opportunities for the less formally educated Americans in this country. Tomato. Ta-mah-to.
I refute the idea that Americans won’t do those jobs and that everyone needs a formal college degree.
Additionally, I offer a grateful thank you to all those Americans who are not being acknowledged.
I offer an apology for every hard working American without a formal college education for the way our President insinuates you are something less without a college degree.
I’m ashamed as an American to have bought into the two ideas.
So should you.
