One Reporter's Opinion: Robert Maxwell on Illegal-Immigrant Invasion

Friday, 14 April 2006 12:00 AM

It is this reporter's opinion that one of the amazing things about the immigration debate raging in Washington is that not one of the Democratic or Republican proposals has yet to grip the everyday American. The proposals put forth by the politicians fail to offer solutions or even a direction, much less leadership.

The politicos appear more interested in their own self-advancement than offering us constituents a reasonable response to our obvious disgust over the illegal-immigration invasion. Even with the important election looming in November, they are more interested in lining their own pockets.

Recently, a letter to the president written by a famous Hollywood writer/director, published, in part, in the Washington Times, caught my eye. The writer, Ronald F. Maxwell, who wrote and directed such movies as "Gettysburg" and "Gods and Generals," literally retraced the footsteps on the Civil War battlefields, studied the letters and diaries of that generation, and has a deep appreciation of our country. His father served with the Army in North Africa and his French mother was liberated in Tunisia and became a lawful immigrant to the U.S.

Maxwell says, "No country at any time anywhere has sustained the influx of millions of foreigners across its borders." His letter speaks of a wave of anti-American 'leftism' sweeping Latin America, and states that the leading candidate in the next presidential election – a far-left socialist radical – may be elected the new president of Mexico. Vicente Fox's six-year term is almost finished; within months Mexico will have a new president, and it appears that the man leading the pack in the presidential race is even farther to the left than Vicente Fox!

Maxwell writes:

"Mr. President, this is a time for candor. Your immigration policy is viewed as captive to cheap labor – the big business lobby. It is splitting your party apart. If this continues, the last two years of your presidency will be plagued with impeachment hearings, pressures to diminish the war against terrorism, and cutting off of funds for the war in Iraq. And the American people will once again be forced to endure a painful repetition of the humiliating withdrawal from Vietnam."

Maxwell tells of watching a Senate Judiciary Committee session on immigration reform. Listening to self-serving, pandering speeches, one would think the senators had been elected in Mexico or any other country other than America. Where was the concern for:

Where was the concern for these desperate mounting issues that have been cast aside way too long? As Maxwell examined Civil War history, he cites a comparison that we appear to be importing a second virtual slave class of low-wage workers hired to replace or displace less educated or underprivileged Americans, including the very descendents of American slaves.

Maxwell, in his letter to the president, says:

"The American people have been made the victims of social engineering placed upon them without their consent and against their will by an arrogant governing elite. The House Immigration Bill 4437 isn't perfect, but it is a firm, realistic place from which to build an effective policy for the survival of our country. Meanwhile, the McCain-Kennedy bill looks like it was drafted by bureaucrats at the United Nations, not by representatives of the United States."

Maxwell suggests that for the president to do the right thing, to take the safe course for protecting our country, he will have to endure even more vilification from the Left, witness large and increasingly violent rallies by those who don't want to abide by our laws or the will of the American people who think they are entitled – who believe this country belongs to them, who believe the rest of us should move aside, shut up and smile.

He says, "Mr. President, to pretend this problem will go away by pandering to the illegal population or to leave it for the next generation to solve is NATIONAL SUICIDE."

We are witnessing an invasion masquerading as immigration! The 'mobocracy' in our streets is nothing more than an invasion, and something's got to change.

Maxwell says there are two Republican parties: One is seen correctly by most Americans as responsive first and foremost to the demands of multinational corporations, agribusiness and the Chamber of Commerce. The other is best represented by the embattled members of the House, which represents grassroots America – 'We the People' – "in this debate in which you have the opportunity to make your party one and whole again, to regain its soul and return it to the service and the sovereignty of the American people."

"Mr. President, you must disenthrall yourself from the failed policies of the present. I implore you to rethink this issue and change course. Millions of Americans, a great majority of your fellow citizens, will be with you."

And Robert F. Maxwell, writer, director, patriot, implores the president to start speaking and doing the sensible, courageous and right thing. "You will see your poll numbers turn dramatically around. You will save your country."
