Guard Our Borders

This is what immigrants should be told when they come into our country.

“In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the man’s becoming in very fact an American, and nothing but an American…There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile… We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language… and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”

Theodore Roosevelt 1907

The terror in France this week by Muslim gangs has to do with their “political correctness” and the “salad bowl” theory, that people don’t have to assimilate in order to live in France. This “political correctness” has permeated our culture, too. And you need only look across the pond to see the disastrous results of multicultural liberalism.

Beyond both of these issues related to immigrants, is the border control problem. From Cal Thomas at Townhall:

The Bush Administration would have us believe that most illegal immigrants (or “undocumented workers” in the lingo of political correctness) are merely looking for a better life and taking only those jobs that Americans do not want.

Kerry Morales isn’t buying that line. “Maybe 20 years ago the illegals were innocent, hard-working people,” she tells the San Antonio Express-News. “Not any more. Now they’re extremely dangerous. They mean violence.”

Morales, a South Texas rancher, says illegal immigrants have cut down her fences, stolen her pickup truck and broken into her home, once invading her bedroom and nearly strangling her. She says they fled after she reached for her gun.

Rather than complain to authorities, who seem unable or unwilling to stem the tide, Morales joined hundreds of other volunteers from across the country along a 20-mile stretch of the Arizona-Mexico border where they intend to help the Border Patrol spot illegals and reduce their number.

It’s a dangerous policy to allow our borders to go unprotected and unchecked. We should be standing vigilant and guarding our borders.

Terry Dillard has a great video he made regarding this issue over at Right Track blog.

I watched Gerardo on the O’Rilley factor comparing the Illegal Mexican immigrants to those that immigrated to American in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s…Irish, Italians, Polish, Germans, Chinese, etc. He said those immigrants weren’t wanted either and were feared by the people already here. He may be right in that they weren’t wanted and feared but there is big one difference he missed. Those immigrants came here LEGALLY. They didn’t sneak over in the middle of the night along unprotected borders, or pay people to sneak them into the United States. They came over on boats and entered through Ports of Entry like Ellis Island. They had to have the proper documentation and underwent medical examinations. There is a world of difference between Legal and Illegal.

If you break the law to get into my country, you will break my countries laws once you are here.

Hi Bob and yes I agree they very well will break our laws once they are here when they don't even respect our laws to come in the legal way.
A friend of mine came to this country some 30 years ago and she said she sat on the plane holding her physical exam papers and an X-Ray. She was coming in from Glasgow, Scotland and she did every single thing according to the law. She had to prove she did not have TB.
Thank you for your response.
