The news report in Saturday’s MDJ (“Effect of immigration crisis on Cobb County remains unknown”) had remarks from various people about the rush on the borders by what the press constantly calls “children.”
As D.A. King made clear in a recent MDJ column, Border Patrol agents tell us that most of these illegal aliens are not children.
I have also read that the Border Patrol agents are now catching diseases such as scabies, lice, tuberculosis, chicken pox and swine flu from the hordes of illegals and have inadvertently passed these afflictions on to their own American children. With school starting, it is not hard to see the calamity Obama has caused with his lawlessness on immigration. And that the effect here in Cobb will soon be impossible to ignore.
I couldn’t help but shake my head as I read the quote from amnesty proponent Jerry Gonzalez when he rejects the concept of sending the illegals back to their own Third-World nations, and then says we should follow what he says is “the rule of law.” Gonzalez told state legislators in 2011 that we can’t afford to enforce the rule of law because of budget shortages when the General Assembly was considering what is now state immigration law aimed at stopping illegal immigration in Georgia. The same article had D.A. King offering a solution, saying that the first thing we must do is to secure the border.
U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson sent out his weekly email newsletter last week with his position on the border crisis and was on the same page as King. He says, “Our first priority in addressing this humanitarian crisis has to be securing the border, and I believe we should deploy the National Guard to the Mexican border to aid in this crisis. A second step we must take immediately to address this crisis at the border is to ensure that those who have entered this country illegally can be quickly and efficiently returned to their home countries.”
My wife is a (legal) immigrant, and we only vote for candidates with a strong enforcement position on immigration. Call us “pro-American” and fed up. We take the side of D.A. King and Sen. Isakson and reject the anti-American deceitfulness of Jerry Gonzalez and Barack Obama.
