Immigration

A caveat: If you will not read this word for word or just skip to the conclusion, you don’t like the subject or me. There are too many words. You are too busy. You are offended. You do not care. You are part of the problem. I don’t care what your reason or reasons might be, if you will not take the time or make the time, one way or another, you are part of the problem with the word and the title of this, “immigration”! You may disagree with every single word I have written and my conclusion, but according to recent polls, “immigration” is the number one  (#1), issue on the minds of the majority of legal eligible voters, in The USA! 🇺🇸 And one way or another, “immigration” effects and affects each one of us and all of us, whether citizens or not and no matter what your political party affiliation, association with or agree with, may be! I would think; 🤔 I would hope, you would want to do something about it, for at least yourself, if not for any other and read this, word for word!

I promise that if you will read this in its entirety, you will find that “immigration”, is NOT a single issue, but it capsulizes ALL the issues which effect and should be important to every single citizen (including you and I), of the United States of America 🇺🇸 chiefly:

Ancestry
Jobs
Economics
Taxes
Retirement
Freedoms & Liberty
Religion
National Security
Sovereignty
Personal Safety
Personal Health
Public Discourse
Personal & Social Communication
Public Safety
Public Heath
Rule of Law
Justice
Human Rights
Constitutional Rights
Politics
History
The Present
The Future

And “immigration” effects and affects, and should be important to every person that would seek to come here, is caught up in any way within it or by sheer vast numbers, overwhelm it (“immigration”).

And by the way, according to recent polls, “immigration”, is the most important issue (#1), at present, among all potential voters in the USA, 🇺🇸 regardless of party affiliation or identification.

And “immigration” at its core is, a ‘money maker’! A lot of money! 💰 it is Not that money is evil, it is the Love of money, which is the root of ALL evil!

“For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”

The Bible, I Timothy 6:10, King James Version (KJV)

Why would anyone “love money”? Because it equates power. Unjustly, by amassing money (a lot of money), by sheer logic, as the receiver grows in power, it is at the expense of those it has been taken from by any and all means and the consequence of inequality, leaves the powerless even more- powerless! This “root of all evil”, pierces all (the powerful and by close proximity, the powerless) “through with many sorrows”! Unless, it is God which exceedingly, abundantly above all that one could ask for or think, provides. See: The Bible, Ephesians 3:20 KJV

To begin and to be clear, when using the word “immigration”, I really mean illegal aliens trying to illegally immigrate to and into Our country, the (USA 🇺🇸). But to be be non-offensive to anyone and politically correct (PC), I use only the word “immigration.” Oops, 😬 my own B.S. App just went off on moi (French= me), with a notification audibly and loudly, B.S.!!

OK, 👌 so I am equally offensive and NOT politically correct! OK,👌 so “immigration” includes: illegal aliens, legal immigration, legitimate political refugees and asylum seekers/obtainers. Asylum (legitimate or not is often used as a pretext to “immigration”. The fear of persecution (real or not), is often used as a pretext for human rights suffrage with asylum or political asylum. What follows is a clear and simple definition of asylum, with some of its history.

“The right of asylum (sometimes called right of political asylum, from the Ancient Greek word ἄσυλον)[1][2] is an ancient juridical concept, under which a person persecuted by one’s own country may be protected by another sovereign authority, such as another country or church official, who in medieval times could offer sanctuary. This right was recognized by the Egyptians, the Greeks, and the Hebrews, from whom it was adopted into Western tradition. René Descartes fled to the Netherlands, Voltaire to England, and Thomas Hobbes to France, because each state offered protection to persecuted foreigners.”

“The Egyptians, Greeks, and Hebrews recognized a religious “right of asylum”, protecting criminals (or those accused of crime) from legal action to some extent. This principle was later adopted by the established Christian church, and various rules were developed that detailed how to qualify for protection and what degree of protection one would receive.[3]”

Excerpts from: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Right_of_asylum

From the above explanation of asylum, notice the words “Christian Church” and “sanctuary.”

I don’t care and neither should you, what individuals, church, organization, city or state seeks— with billions of taxpayer dollars in the name of humanity, to give “sanctuary”! They are complicit in aiding and abetting illegal actions!

And any sworn or affirmed representative of local/state/federal government, which does not work towards securing our sovereign borders and “immigration” reform, is in violation of their Constitutional oaths of office, as servants of the people!

The US Congress, with many long-sitting members (through several administrations), have years ago agreed and voted to secure our borders and reform “immigration” policies, but have done little to nothing about keeping their word or their oaths to the Constitution or US, the citizens of the USA. 🇺🇸 If this was not bad enough, in 2019, the USA 🇺🇸 has a president that campaigned on “immigration”, was in part elected because of it and has consistently tried to keep promises made and has done much, despite almost constant opposition. Opposition has been nearly constant and from many of the same former agreeing members of Congress, lawsuits and judicial overreach. This is much more than a rejection of the legitimacy of the current president, a vehement dislike or hatred of the president or the Constitutionality of “immigration” actions taken or attempted. Change the law! Do NOT fault someone trying to implement the law!

This will be explained later, but simply answered here. Just compare costs. The president asked for 5 billion dollars towards securing our borders. The request was denied. The actual costs of keeping our borders open and “immigration” costs the US taxpayers, $158+ billion dollars currently. This money is unaccounted for, undue, inhumane and unnecessary! It is is essence, “taxation without representation”! WE became a nation out of 13 colonies that went to war and won, over that very thing!

This is not to say and I am not saying here that none coming to the USA are not being persecuted or the claims for seeking asylum are not legitimate. But the pretext is, that all are, when in reality, all are not. It is merely a pretext to diffuse, distort, lesson, legitimize the illegitimate, shut down and shut off any civil discourse, much like calling an illegal alien, an undocumented immigrant. Labeling a jar of kale as carrots, 🥕 does not make the contents any less than what it is, kale! Oh, kale No! 😂 And referring to illegal aliens as undocumented immigrants, does not make their actions any less illegal! So, if anyone comes to or into the USA 🇺🇸 without permission or legally, it is illegal, they are engaged or engaging in illegal actions and they are therefore, illegal aliens not from here, nor have they legal status to be here! And anyone that is OK with this is either complicit with or essentially are in agreement with, aiding and abetting a criminal enterprise! Why criminal and why is it an enterprise, because profits are made by illegal means!

Notice with all of this, I am not forgetting the potential horrible plights and situations from the countries people are fleeing! I am not forgetting about women and children! I am not forgetting about families, human rights, human dignity or humanity as a whole! These are all important, but so is coming and entering and remaining in the USA, 🇺🇸 LEGALLY, also equally important!

Surely anyone can understand the word, overwhelm? Our borders are overwhelmed! Our borders and our border guards and agents are overwhelmed! The entire “immigration” system, is overwhelmed! Our courts are overwhelmed! Medical personnel and resources are overwhelmed! Education is overwhelmed! The US taxpayer, is overwhelmed from either having to be forced to pay or borrow from other countries including one that is an enemy of the state, China, 🇨🇳 and against their future and the future of their posterity. The massive numbers that have illegally come here or are coming, are overwhelming! “Immigration” is, overwhelming all!

Even with all We have, we cannot take in all that want to come here!

As good and as compassionate; as great and as powerful; as wealthy; as large as the mass of beautiful millions of square miles from north to south and from sea to shining sea is, The United States of America, it is, overwhelmed!

An open door policy of such which exists today in the USA, 🇺🇸 is causing the masses to come and overwhelm all that come and all Our finite resources. Encouraged to come by the fact that our laws are not being applied, many pay inordinate amounts of money to gangs to supposedly safely transport them to the land of the free and home of the brave and promises of ‘The American Dream’, opportunity and a better future for themselves and their families. In exchange for these false promises, which hide ulterior motives, some are willing to be mules for illegal drugs. Some lie that the children they are traveling with are their own, for supposedly more humane treatment when they arrive at the border. Some of these children may be from families which cannot make the trip, but are sent with hopes that their children will be accepted and protected by the USA. 🇺🇸 Some of these children are sent on purpose to be used (abused), sexually or for body parts and organs. Some women are raped along the route to the USA and some are intended for prostitution and illegal sales of body parts. The same can be said for some of the men. Some come sick. Some become sick along the way. Some bring disease that our country has eradicated long ago and can potentially re-infect a whole new generation. Some are criminals- murderers, rapists, thieves and abusers and perpetrators of all sorts of reprehensible acts against humanity. Some are terrorists. Some are taught to lie about being persecuted and are seeking asylum. Some are met at our borders by well-intending lawyers or lawyers with ulterior motives, lawyers that know how to loop through all the loopholes, of the “immigration” system.

All of the people that come here have need of something or have many needs. They at the very least need food, water, and shelter. Many have medical and emotional needs. Many need personal hygiene products, services and educational support about hygiene. They all will need housing, clothing, jobs, general education and health services and access. They will need personal or public transportation.

Offers to send many of these new illegal aliens to sanctuary cities and states, have all but been rejected. Many of these same sanctuary cities are overwhelmed by our own homeless people, in unhealthy and unsafe environments. Many of these cities are run by people that would not secure our borders nor would they take many or any of these that come from outside Our country! Do not talk to me about humanity! It’s all inhumane and they cannot even take care of our own cities and our own citizens! How inhumane is it to subject anyone that would seek to come to the USA, 🇺🇸 to such deplorable circumstances and situations!

It’s is NOT that WE do NOT Want you, WE are Overwhelmed!

But many of the same people that will not secure our borders or reform the “immigration” system, have given and/or are attempting to give these illegal aliens, rights, privileges and services and resources (things), not even afforded to the citizens of Our country. Many of the illegals are getting or are hopeful of receiving driver’s licenses and the right to vote, at least for local elections. The reason stated is that all people, citizen or not, have the human right to participate in how they are governed. Do not speak to me about truth and justice! This is neither the truth according to the Constitution of Our Republic (rule of law and representative government), nor is it just!

Do not even mention to me, trust in government, to not allow illegal aliens with drivers licenses and local voting rights, to not then be allowed to vote in national elections! Not just I, but WE the People, the citizens of The USA, 🇺🇸 the majority of US regardless of party affiliation or identification, do NOT trust Our own government! Like it or not, questions still linger about the citizenship of the last president of The USA 🇺🇸 and at least one present sitting member of The US House of Representatives.

Do not come to me Christians and Christian organizations, and do-gooders, in the name of God or humanity, to guilt me or attempt to persuade me that your involvement in such illegality is “divine” or of God! I am a Christian! There is nothing Christian about this current “immigration” debacle! It is insane! Perhaps those so-called Christians so involved, are duped, tricked, fooled or all of those, because of their compassion and empathy or they are willing participants in the root of all evil, the love of money, which is equated with power.

Now I ask YOU! Are you a sane person of sound mind? Do you consider yourself to be rational and reasonable (able to reason)? Do you have any common sense? What sane, sound-minded, reasonable, commonsensical individual would be OK with the current state of “immigration???

Please allow me to assume that you are NOT Okey Dokey, with the current corrupt “immigration” system, because this is what it is, CORRUPT!

So, what is at the core of this corrupt root of all evil, love of money = power thing? Just remember those that rejected 5 billion dollars to secure Our borders, are by default, in favor of the current actual costs, of $158+ billion dollars to this corrupt “immigration” thang’! I can’t even call it a thing because, a thing is at least a some-thing. I cannot define or imagine a “thang”! Five billion dollars would have been a “thing”, WE could have all seen! We can or could see walls, repairs, upgrades and improvements, and etc, But where in the hell has the $158+ billion dollars (and growing every second), gone???? Somebody’s pocket and some pockets!!

Sung to the tune of: Follow the Yellow Brick Road: “Follow, follow, follow- Follow the Green Money Road!”

Just one example. An illegal child needs diapers. They receive them. How did they get them? They were provided. By whom? Individuals, businesses and organizations? How are they provided? They are purchased or perhaps donated and written off as charitable expenses on corporate, business or individual taxes! Who is profiting the most, the people to whom are being provided for or those doing the providing? The providers!!! Bottom line, who or whom is paying most of the providers who provide? You and I though taxes and increased prices, for many of the same provisions we purchase from the same providers, to offset their costs while maintaining and/or increasing their profit margins! Or in the name of, under the good faith and credit of, the People of, The United States of America 🇺🇸, money is borrowed from such countries as China, 🇨🇳 against Our future and of Our posterity’s future! “Immigration” is part of our National Debt that is growing every second! Congress regularly raises the debt ceiling and borrows more! What happens if we can no longer even pay the interest on these debts? WE cannot sustain these debts! WE cannot sustain “immigration”! WE are overwhelmed! Where does the money go?

“Immigration” is causing Lady to Liberty to turn cartwheels!

Rest assured there is work afoot to out any and all individuals, businesses and organizations that are mostly unaccountable and profiting greatly from “immigration”! A current accounting of anyone and all involved in this Ponzi scheme, cannot come too soon enough for me! Hell, “immigration” currently is corrupt, it’s a racket! Maybe racketeering charges will come?

Just remember that many of the same in government that rejected $5 billion in favor of $158+ billion dollars and rising every second, are also profiting from this F—-d up “immigration” system!

If my words in writing this were worth just $1 a word to write them, multiplied by the time it takes for just me to read them and if I am the only one to ever read them, it would still be a tidy sum!! But at least I have produced something here that anyone could profit from, IF they take the time to read it, assimilate it and apply it! What does the corrupt current “immigration” system produce?? The love of money, the root of all evil and many piercings through!

Just remember that many of the same people that are OK 👌 with giving driver’s licenses and voting rights, WANT THE VOTES from those illegal aliens, they portend to help, to maintain and increase their power over the powerless!

And now you have the chief issues from the single word “immigration” and its cause, for its inherent corruption! It is the love of money which is the root of all evil! The love of money equates power! And now you know the consequences of this power, it pierces through with many sorrows, to both the powerful and the powerless! I am not powerless, for as in our still, albeit constantly attacked motto of The USA, 🇺🇸 it is in God I trust and I hope, that WE together unified with one voice, can profess and confess, “in God We Trust”!

If “immigration” is NOT fixed NOW, anyone and everyone (citizen or other), can kiss “Liberty and Justice for all” goodbye, as she drifts off aimlessly and is swallowed up into the jaws of oblivion and remembered no more!

I have not written these many words for nought, nor intended that if you have read to this point, to leave you with nothing to do about this!

The solution is simple! It does not take a lot of time to solve!! For one thing, you spend less than you have to spend, but never more than you have! But to fix “immigration” requires more than Congress. It does require your will and mine and a collective will of US, WE The People, the citizens of The USA!!! 🇺🇸

Count yourself among those recently polled that “immigration” is, currently the number one (#1), issue because, it contains so many, many issues! Question with boldness anyone seeking to serve in any elected office— local/state/federal! What their stance is on, “immigration” and what are their plans (NOT to study it or even address it), WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO DO ABOUT IT!

If their answers are acceptable to you, vote them in, which effectually will drive our those that will not! Then hold them accountable to their promises, to keep them!

And even before any campaign, primary or election— write, call and get into the face of any currently elected official— local/state/federal and remind them that “immigration” is the current number one (#1) issue, among US, WE the People of The United States of America🇺🇸. Remind them that we are the lawful citizenry! Remind them that they have sworn or affirmed oaths, to the Constitution!! And remind them that they are, Our servants! And demand that “immigration”, is righted NOW!

And then?

Keep doing these things!!!!

 

1 of WE,

Independence Day

By Dahni
© 2019, all rights reserved

Just 13 little colonies and about 13% of their population won independence for all

As we contemplate and ready ourselves for a four-day weekend, food, fun and frivolity with family and friends, consider HOW it is even possible! While our fledgling little Republic was in labor to be born, our founding mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, kinsmen (and kinswomen), and friends, were preparing for war that held only a fool’s hope of surviving and with far, far less of a fool’s hope that they would succeed! But they were committed to pledge their fortunes, their lives and their sacred honor, ONLY because, it was the right thing to do! Think about this the next time you don’t feel like doing right or can’t even imagine winning!

The original was dated for July 4th, 1776 as this was the date the wording was approved by the appropriate parties in Congress. It was signed, August 2nd.

On this Day in History-

July 4. 1776

In Philadelphia, Jefferson’s Declaration of Independence is adopted and approved by the appropriate parties.

Meanwhile, on Staten Island in New York, George Washington expresses dismay that many islanders are “too favourably disposed” to join the British.

And at Crown Point, NY, Dr. Bebe writes that “The Capts and Subs may generally be found at the grog shops, the soldiers either sleeping, swimming, fishing, or cursing and swearing most generally the Latter.”

But wait, what do I mean on July 4th, 1776, the ‘Declaration’ was “adopted” and “approved”? 

They decided to “Declare” Independence on July 2nd, 1776. But the American Revolution started in April, of 1775. And Jefferson wrote his first draft, in June, of 1776. The adopters and approvers never even signed it until August 2nd, 1776. It was not Delivered to Great Britain until, November of 1776. But we celebrate September 17 as the day our Constitution was signed. Why do we therefore, not celebrate August 2nd, as the date the Declaration was signed? 

OK, so what did happen on July 4th, 1776, with regards to the ‘Declaration’?

On July 4th, the Continental Congress approved of the final wording of the Declaration of Independence. The fancy copy (now displayed in the National Archives in Washington, D.C.), was made and included the date, July 4th, 1776. From this, copies were made (the Dunlop Broadsides), including the date 7/4/1776 and distributed throughout the colonies. General George Washington, commander of the Continental Army, had such a copy, read aloud to all his troops. 

A national holiday? Not even close! There were lots of problems and disagreements among our little O’ Republic, for many years, even after the war’s end and Independence was won, from Great Britain. The Democrat-Republican Party liked Jefferson and his Declaration and the Federalists thought it was too French and too anti-Great Britain. 

Even after the War of 1812, there was not much interest in the Declaration. What war? The war between the United States and The United Kingdom (Basically, Great Britain again). John Adams complained in a letter that our New America, was not much interested in our past. 

By the 1820’s and the 1830’s, the Federalists came apart and Jefferson’s Democrat-Republican Party emerged and new copies of the Declaration were printed. 

For many years, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams were bitter rivals and wouldn’t even speak to each other. But they reconciled and became great friends at the end. 

“Thomas Jefferson still survives.” These were the famous last words of America’s second president of the United States, John Adams. He died on July 4, 1826 at the age of 92, on the same day as Thomas Jefferson. Little did Adams realize that he had actually outlived his former rival who turned into great friend, by just a few hours.

Since both men died on the same day, July 4th, 1826, a renewed interest in our past and of the document, the Declaration of Independence was renewed. But not completely.

By the times of Abraham Lincoln, the Jefferson Democrat-Republican party had split into the two-party system we have before us today, continuing to divide us from one another. On April 6th, 1859, Lincoln sent a letter declining an invitation to attend the birthday celebration, honoring Thomas Edison, in Boston, MA

“All honor to Jefferson–to the man who, in the concrete pressure of a struggle for national independence by a single people, had the coolness, forecast, and capacity to introduce into a merely revolutionary document, an abstract truth, applicable to all men and all times, and so to embalm it there, that to-day, and in all coming days, it shall be a rebuke and a stumbling-block to the very harbingers of re-appearing tyranny and oppression.”

Your obedient Servant


A. Lincoln

 

Still, it was not until 1870, almost 100 years after the Declaration had been approved, and only 5 years after the American Civil War had ended that Congress passed legislation, making it a national holiday. But how it comes to us today, was not cemented until 1939 and further amended, in 1941. 

Amidst horrible and ill health, the loss of his beloved eldest daughter, whom had died in childbirth, Jefferson wept uncontrollably, in the next room. He was nearly broke and his family tried to shield him from the truth that he was about to lose his beloved Monticello. The era of the original founders was about to come crashing down. Still, the mayor of Washington, D.C., had big plans for the fourth in, 1826. The three surviving signers of the Declaration—Jefferson, John Adams and Charles Carroll, were all invited to attend as were former presidents—Madison and Monroe. All declined for the same reasons—poor health and old age. But Jefferson could not let this pass and was the last to respond and to decline the invitation. He mustered all of his last remaining strength and passion and brilliant wit, nearly equal to his early work of 1776, with his last known public letter, June 24th, 1826. What follows are excerpts of this letter, declining to attend in Washington, D.C., for July 4th, 1826.

“May it be to the world what I believe it will be, (to some parts sooner, to others later, but finally to all), the Signal of arousing men to burst the chains, under which Monkish ignorance and superstition had persuaded them to bind themselves, and to assume the blessings & security of self government. The form which we have substituted restores the free right to the unbounded exercise of reason and freedom of opinion.”

“All eyes are opened, or opening to the rights of man, the general spread of the light of science has already laid open to every view the palpable truth that the mass of mankind has not been born, with saddles on their backs, nor a favored few booted and spurred, ready to ride them legitimately by the grace of god. These are grounds of hope for others. For ourselves let the annual return of this day, for ever refresh our recollections of these rights and an undiminished devotion to them.”

Excerpts from: Thomas Jefferson’s (third president of the United States), last known public letter.

Jefferson’s visionary friend again and in death the same day, just hours apart, on July 4th, 1826, once wrote to his wife Abigail, how Independence Day should be remembered; how it should be celebrated. He wrote that the date-

“The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoca [Spanish for epoch]  in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival…with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forevermore. You will think me transported with enthusiasm, but I am not. I am well aware of the toil and blood and treasure it will cost us to maintain this Declaration and support and defend these States. Yet, through all the gloom I can see the rays of ravishing light and glory.”

John Adams, letter to wife Abigail, 1776 July 3rd, Philadelphia

In all manner of pomp and illuminations, let the banner unfurl in the winds of Liberty

I am not for changing the day of our Independence, certainly not, but neither am I for, forgetting these times and dates!

From all of this and so much more, even to the despair of having been born and to life itself, only roughly 13% of the population fought in the American Revolution and of those that survived and endured, some went on to defeat the greatest military force in the world 🌍 in its day and secured the blessings of Liberty to themselves and their posterity; their progeny, be it by DNA or free choice (you and I). 

Do not so freely abandon these lessons of Liberty! Be ever mindful of them and never relinquish the vigilance necessary, to keep them! 

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY! May God bless you and may God continue to bless, The United States 🇺🇸 of America!
