This past weekend (January 12 and 13th) the Tea Party Coalition convened a convention in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. I was provided the opportunity to provide my perspectives on the immigration crisis that confronts America and Americans. As I have often noted, immigration is not a single issue but a singular issue that impacts nearly every challenge and threat to we face. The immigration laws were enacted to achieve two primary goals, protect innocent lives and protect the jobs of American and lawful immigrant workers.

Our nation is greatly benefited by the rich diversity of our people which is why I could never imagine living anywhere except New York City, arguably the most diverse city in our nation if not, in fact, the world. However, my idea of diversity most certainly does not include members of MS-13, the Mexican drug cartels or members of other transnational gangs or members of al-Qaeda or other terrorist organizations!
Our armed forces are charged with securing America’s borders externally while the DHS is supposed to secure those same borders from within!
It is vital that American workers never be made to compete with foreign workers for their jobs! (This requirement is a component of the Immigration Laws that are not being enforced today!)
If our government’s failures to secure our nation’s borders and effectively enforce our immigration laws that are intended to protect our nation and our citizens concerns you or especially if it angers you, I ask you to call your Senators and Congressional “Representative. This is not only your right- it is your obligation!
We the People must make it clear to our politicians that we are not as dumb as they hope we are!
We live in a perilous world and in a perilous era. The survival of our nation and the lives of our citizens hang in the balance.
This is neither a Conservative issue, nor is it a Liberal issue- simply stated, this is most certainly an AMERICAN issue!
You are either part of the solution or you are a part of the problem!
Democracy is not a spectator sport!
Lead, follow or get out of the way!
