One Reporter's Opinion: Americans Are Waking Up to the Danger

Friday, 07 April 2006 12:00 AM

It is this reporter's opinion that America is tearing itself apart over immigration and that it is a direct result of the Bush party's failure to secure our porous borders against invasion. It no longer concerns just the states along the border with Mexico; it has spread all throughout the U.S. But there is hope. The sleeping giant may be awakening.

When asked if illegal immigration will be an important issue in the November elections, 88 percent of respondents say it will. Nearly 9 in 10 Americans say the immigration issue will be important to them when they vote in November.

Americans are becoming aware that after China and India we are the third-most-populous nation in the world, but we're catching up fast to the Third World. Census estimates now project that the U.S. population will reach 500 million by the year 2050 – then double and exceed

This means we will need four times as much food, water, electricity, fuel, housing and other necessities to sustain a population of 1 billion people. Our standard of living will decline and UNREST IS BOUND TO RESULT.

That point may be only a few years away, yet our politicians would grant amnesty to millions of people who enter our country illegally and break our laws. The politicians of both parties will be held responsible for pushing us toward national suicide. Our children and grandchildren will be living in the equivalent of a Third World country. And yet the president tells us the invaders are "living in the shadows" and that they do "jobs Americans won't do."

We Americans, from our beginnings, have always performed ALL JOBS to build America. Who did these jobs before the illegals flooded our country? We did. We worked in our youth. We work still today.

Today we have 7 million to 8 million unemployed. Meanwhile, a succession of Mexican regimes ease their own social crises by dumping their poor on us. These same Mexican poor are sending back $20 billion a year to keep the corrupt Mexican government afloat.

But the people of America are beginning to stand up and take notice.

Recently Senator John McCain was challenged by union leaders regarding his views on immigration and the war in Iraq. The senator, possibly a candidate for president again, outlined his position on the Senate immigration debate, saying tougher border enforcement must be accompanied by Bush's guest worker provisions that give illegals a path toward citizenship.

Murmurs turned to booing. "Pay a decent wage!" the union leaders shouted. McCain, echoing Bush, replied by saying immigrants are taking jobs nobody else wants and he stupidly offered anybody in the crowd $50 an hour to 'pick lettuce.' There were shouts of protest: One guy yelled, "I'll take it!" And someone else in the crowd said he didn't appreciate McCain questioning their work ethic.

Yes, the people are beginning to talk back, and historians will one day marvel that our Southwest was slipping away – demographically, linguistically and culturally – while Americans were fighting to hold Iraq together ... while 3 million illegal aliens a year were pouring across our own borders.

Are you listening, America? It's time to wake up!

The Los Angeles Times tells of a video taken during Bush's 2004 campaign that was mailed to Latino voters across the country. Bush is shown waving a Mexican flag. And during his speech at San Antonio in 1996, while running for governor, he stated, "About 15 years before the Civil War, much of the American West was northern Mexico. The people who lived there were not called 'Latinos' or 'Hispanics'; they were Mexican citizens until all that land became part of the U.S. After that, many of them were treated as foreigners in their own land." So help me God, that's what the president said when he was running for governor and appealing to Latinos.

"Immigrant Issues are Personal for Bush" – Associates say he has long had a comfort level with Mexicans and their culture. In a 2004 campaign video, he waved a Mexican flag. (Los Angeles Times) http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/la-na-bush2apr02,0,1860642.story?coll=la-home-nation
