When I posted on TRUMP’S FIRST STATE OF THE UNION, promised to provide some observations. Since Trump’s speech covered lots of ground and there a lots of pundits out there, I wondered what I could add. Here it is. A question. Am I a white supremacist?
The answer? Well, maybe not. At least one Democrat disagrees with Nancy Pelosi.
The West Virginia senator Joe Manchin on Sunday criticized House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi for dismissing a new White House immigration plan as a way to “make America white again”.
“We don’t need that type of rhetoric on either side, from Nancy, [Republican House speaker] Paul Ryan or anybody else,” said Manchin, a West Virginian moderate and a leader of a bipartisan Senate group working on immigration who spoke to CNN’s State of the Union. (continued here)
What are the issues involved? Well, I suppose this video clip from Fox Business News provides a fairly good summary.
What is President Donald Trump proposing? Here is the framework Trump mentioned in his speech: White House Framework on Immigration Reform & Border Security.
Do I think the White House Framework makes sense? It depends on the bill Congress produces. As usual, the devil is in the details, and too many of our congressmen cannot be trusted. So I told my congressman what I want. See WHEN DO THE IDEOLOGICALLY MAD BECOME TRAITOROUS?
Trump’s White House Framework on Immigration Reform & Border Security is just that, a framework. It does not mention things like E-Verify. If we don’t hold both our government and employers accountable, force our government to make E-Verify work and force employers to use it, illegal immigrants will just keep coming here for jobs.
Putting an end to illegal immigration is a make or break issue for the future of this nation. If we do not control who can immigrate to the United State, then we will not be able to maintain our cultural identity. Instead of being a People with a shared identity, we will just become a motley horde feuding over the spoils of a dying nation, yet one more example of a failed republic.
Consider. What comes to mind when you think of the United States?
- The English language.
- The history of great people, a shared heritage.
- The flag and our national anthem.
- Our constitutional republic.
- The freedom we all enjoy.
- A safe and prosperous land for our family, friends, relatives and fellow countrymen.
It is not enough just to have laws that look good on paper. We have to have laws that actually work, and we have to make the people responsible for enforcing those laws do their job. If they refuse, we must promptly replace them. Otherwise, when our system of government fails because no one actually cares how it is supposed to work, we have no one to blame except me, myself, and I.
