littlebytesnews's curator insight, May 4, 2013 12:15 AM

I wrote the following a few days ago and wanted to include it as well with regard to our immigration problem, terrorism and the failures of DHS.

 

 

"Immigration, Terrorism and DHS"
by @littlebytesnews 
4/27/13

Aunt Jehmu Greene was on Fox pushing immigration reform saying it will make us safer,yeah right even legal immigrants are terrorists #Boston

 

We need to secure our borders or more illegals will keep coming in, we need to enforce current law, fix our economy, not amnesty.

 

As my friend Pedro Rivera says:"His bill does not secure the border. If we can't track legal residents on Boston even after Russia informed the CIA and FBI, why would anyone believe this Bill will make us secure?"

 

Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice.....shame on me....they fooled Reagan in the 80's and then we lost CA to Dems. It will happen nationally if we let more illegal immigrants get citizenship. They won't enforce our laws now nor secure the border now, what makes anyone think they will do either if the immigration/amnesty bill is passed. Marco Rubio claims it will make us safer because then they will know who is here...yeah right and like every terrorist cares about getting legal status, they are here to kill us and may want to remain undercover.

 

I say stop all immigration reform, enforce our laws and secure our borders. Until Americans can feel safe and the infiltration of drug cartel and terrorists and other criminals is stopped at our borders and our economy is fully recovered we can't afford to risk more lives or jobs and let any more people into the US regardless of status! If they are Islamists, come from terrorist countries, sorry to say, but your friends have ruined it for the rest of you! It's time to say no to those who could do us harm, especially when we have those who come here as refugees or asylum seekers and become citizens and they still disrespect our way of life and turn against fellow Americans!

 

If they can't obey our laws and come here legally, they should not get citizenship.

If they come from an Islamic country they should not get citizenship of any kind, not even a work or student visa, 40% of those are abused after they expire the illegal student/worker stays in the US and we end up paying for them in our education and health system and with lives, as in the case with the Boston bombers who came here seeking asylum with their family in 2002. 

Unfortunately, Obama is allowing more immigration under his watch than ever and less deportations, while also not enforcing our immigration laws and weakening our border security.

Anyone who thinks we need immigration reform, such as Rubio and the Gang of 8 and Obama need to be voted out...if we pass full amnesty the GOP will never be re-elected unless we can steal an election and play dirty like the DEMs. We MUST win in 2014 and get back the Senate it is our only last hope at IMPEACHING Obama!


Sorry to say but foreigners like the Boston bombers have ruined any trust most Americans should have in immigration reform of any kind!

We must protect our borders, language and culture or we commit political and national suicide!
