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.

Kevin: Since moving to GA 15 years ago, I have met and worked with more than 70 men and women who were most likely undocumented immigrants. I have found each person to be hard working and honest, interested in only having a better life. I have been treated very well by each of these men and women, a smile and a handshake goes a very long way. The "Right" is incapable of understanding that concept.

The "Wingers" have a black and white, legal vs illegal response to immigration, with no room for compassion.

Oh, Kevin. DA wrote about Terry Anderson and mentioned you as being a racebaiter, which is true oh, so true as you show us every day here. I have never seen DA write about "Hispanics" but illegal aliens. You can't allow that distinction to be recognized because you are a liberal who divides eveyone up into racial and ethnic groups to divide America.

I am guessing thatyou didn't live in South central LA where DA says Terry Anderson lived. Lots of illegal alien gangs in your limosine liberal neighborhood was there Kevin?

You are a fraud and cannot respond to anything without race or skin color.

Mr. King, I thought you were posting a heartfelt tribute, yet you managed to mention me, of all people, in your elegy to Mr. Anderson, who I am sure was a fine gentleman. I thought you were determined to ignore me as an inconsequential voice hereabouts. I guess not.

Anyway, I lived in L.A. for several years and I never felt threatened by Latinos, legal or otherwise, maybe because California (and Arizona, New Mexico and Texas) was once part of Mexico. The Latinos I met in the time I spent there there were law-abiding, deeply religious, modest, family-oriented, frugal and hard working.

In other words, model Americans.

I had the honor of speaking to Terry Anderson one time on his radio show. He was a great American and is truly missed.

Thank you D.A. for remembering Terry on this second anniversary. I have been thinking about him a lot. We are not quite at a 100% without him.
