Saturday, July 7 marked two years since a very dear friend and a great American named Terry Anderson passed away at age sixty. Terry lived in Los Angeles, California, USA which is easily and accurately described as the illegal immigration capital of the world. Terry lived in his neighborhood most of his life and watched as the invasion of California forever changed his corner of America in about two decades.
I post here in case anyone wants to read a heartfelt good-bye written by yours truly to honor someone we miss very much at our house. Another friend, Mark Krikorian, wrote about Terry’s death on the National Review website. It is well worth your time.
One of the things that Terry and I used to laugh about was the fact that because he was quite vocal and effective in demanding an equal application of American laws – even immigration laws and employment laws, even for illegal aliens from Latin America and pointed out that illegal immigration effects America’s poorest first - he was regularly smeared as a “racist” and even a “white supremacist. ”
For the race-baiting Kevin Foley’s of the world, here is a two-minute video of Terry testifying in congress on what illegal immigration from Mexico had done to his community by 1999. Go for it…
You can see a photo or two of Terry (that’s him holding up the placard that reads “ GRINGOS FOR AMERICA”) at the first pro-enforcement rally I ever staged from the photo collection on the Dustin Inman Society website (“1000 words” page). The one of Terry being checked out by Angry-Jerry-with-ties-to a-SPLC-designated-hate-group Gonzalez of the tribalist, anti-enforcement GALEO always cracked us up too.
