It’s Time To Stop The Full Force Invasion
According to the Department of Labor’s Secretary, Hilda L. Solis, “it is a seriousproblem when workers in this country are not being paid every cent they earn”. Yes.She’s right. And that is part of the role of the DOL. Taken directly fromwww.whitehouse.govon their Office of Management and Budget page, “TheDepartment of Labor (DOL) promotes workers’ safety and health; safeguardsworkers’ wages, rights, benefits, and equal employment opportunities; administersemployment and training grant and benefit programs; finances and oversees thestates’ unemployment insurance systems; and protects union members’ rightsunder the law.” They are to “protect union members’ rights under the law”. But I’m curious howthey plan to do that when they are also in the business of assisting those, who arein our country illegally? At the DOL’s website, you can watch “We Can Help”campaign videos spoken in both English and Spanish by the secretary herself,Dolores Huerta (co-founder of the United Farm Workers of America), and actors Jimmy Smits and Esai Morales. In each of the videos these words are actuallyspoken, “Every worker in America has the right to be paid fairly whetherdocumented or not.”Okay. Last I understood, “undocumented” was simply a PC term for “illegal”. Withall the “Americans” out of work, how does the Department of Labor, a federallyfunded organization (that means the taxpayers pay their salaries) justify makingsure illegal immigrants are assured they are given every penny they earn? Theyshouldn’t be earning any pennies in the first place!But then again, with all the talk of amnesty, I guess their crime against all trueAmericans, whether born in the United States or those who came to the countrythrough legal channels, doesn’t matter to those in Washington. It should, however,matter to each and every citizen of this country.The majority of people living in the United States today are immigrants. Whetheryour family heritage goes back hundreds of years or merely this year, the citizens of this country came here through legal channels. You would think those, whostruggled with the complicated red tape of becoming a legal citizen of the UnitedStates, would be appalled and up in arms over those, who slip in unnoticed like athief in the night. They not only slap legal immigrants in the face with their blatantdisregard for our laws, but destroy our way of life.When bureaucrats are allowed to by-pass the law in order to satisfy their ownagenda, they should no longer be considered servants of the people. They shouldbe stripped of their post and a righteous man or woman elected to replace them.
 
But making sure undocumented, ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, are paid fairly is not theonly regression of the federal government. The United States is being slowly, butforcibly pushed in a direction only Congress and the White House want it to go. It istime for the people, of whom the government derives its power, stand up and voicetheir concerns. As Thomas Jefferson said,
“On every unauthoritative exercise of power by the legislature must the people rise in rebellion or their silence be construed into asurrender of that power to them? If so, how many rebellions should we have had already?”
Are we so far removed from the bloody beginning of our country that we haveforgotten what those men gave in order for us to be free? Although most peopledon’t see our country as being oppressed, it most certainly is. We have become lazyand complacent in our wealth. We have kept silent and surrendered the powergranted to us by the Constitution to Congress. They have taken care of us well over the last century, making us fat and content inour entitlements. The rights of the individual have far exceeded their boundaries tothe point one persons freedom now encroaches another’s liberty. We have allowedthe government to intercede on our behalf long enough. It is time we, the people,took back our power.Arizona is the first in a long line of states that are beginning to recognize the ills of our federal government. They are simply standing up for what is right and just byenforcing the federal law, which the federal government refuses to execute. Withthe federal government openly allowing an illegal act, such as crossing our borderswithout permission, the stomachs of every citizen should turn in disgust. It is nodifferent than letting known murders and rapist run free.Every day, thousands of illegals invade our country and yet, Congress is moreinterested in searching for terrorist thousands of miles away than in our ownbackyard. With our borders basically left unattended, we are opening ourselves toan even larger possibility of another terrorist attack. And not only is it easier forterrorists to slip unnoticed onto our land, but drug dealers and other unsavorycharacters. According to Governor Jan Brewer of Arizona, 87% of the illegalsapprehended in the state of Arizona have criminal records. And yet, she is barred bythe federal government in sending them back.Employment for Americans and “being paid every cent they earn” aren’t the onlyadverse affects illegal immigration has on our country. In 2009, Phoenix had threehundred sixteen kidnappings; almost all were related to illegal immigrants or thedrug trade. Narcotic prosecutions in Arizona have risen 202% in the last sixteenmonths, due to the fact that in January 2009 smugglers carrying under 500 pounds, YES 500 POUNDS, of narcotics were often not prosecuted! That is unfathomable!
