Wake Up, America;
Time Is Running Out
On December 4, 2004, T.J. Bonner, president of the National Border Patrol Council, representing 10,000 U.S. border agents, made an alarming statement at a national conference of immigration experts near Washington, D.C.:
“Today, as we sit here, and every other day, 10,000 — that’s thousand — 10,000 illegal aliens will cross our border. The United States Border Patrol will catch about 3,000 of those people…. We are in the midst of an unprecedented crisis.”
Just four weeks later, in January 2005, Wall Street investment firm Bear Stearns published an equally startling report by business analysts Robert and Ng, titled The Underground Labor Force Is Rising To The Surface. Justich and Ng state that there are about 20 million illegal aliens in the U.S. today. They estimate that illegal aliens hold between 12 million and 15 million jobs in the U.S., representing about 8 percent of the current labor force. Since 1990, according to the report, between four million and six million U.S. jobs have shifted from the legal work force to the underground economy as employers have methodically replaced American workers with lower-wage illegal labor subsidized by taxpayers.
The Real Victims
of Mass Immigration
Mass immigration is harming countless American citizens and America itself. Sounds like a big story for the news media, one they should be covering regularly. But do you see many stories about this in newspapers or on the local or network broadcast news? With a few notable exceptions, the mainstream media ignore the momentous changes inflicted by open borders.
Where are the stories about the incalculable number of Americans having lost jobs to illegal aliens and legal immigrants?
Where are the stories about the Americans injured, raped, and killed by illegal aliens, or citizens suffering from the diseases illegals bring with them?
Where are the stories showing the spiraling health care costs illegal aliens are imposing upon U.S. taxpayers?
Where are the stories about American children stuffed into crowded schools with illegal aliens and legal immigrants and forced into “bilingual” classrooms?
Where are the stories about the millions of illegal aliens and legal immigrants causing home prices to skyrocket, creating massive sprawl, and congestion, and straining precious natural resources?
After President Bush and Democratic Party leaders announced in January 2004 their respective “guest-worker” proposals that would open the door to an unlimited number of foreign workers, where were the stories in the mainstream media about how these plans would impact Americans? Where were the stories about any of these serious immigration issues in the months leading up to the 2004 general election?
“MEChA’s goals are to re-conquer all of the Southwestern states and reclaim that land for Mexico as the Nation of Aztlan,” Coe explains. “Their next goal is to control our entire government and wield the power necessary for unrestricted immigration from Mexico and ensure the immigrants’ needs are fully subsidized by billions of U.S. citizen tax dollars. Those goals are well defined in the plan to promote Aztlan, which was activated in January 1995 at the U.C. Riverside Latino conference.”
Armando Navarro, U.C. Riverside professor:
“We’re in a state of transition. And that transformation is called the browning of America. Latinos are now becoming the majority…. It’s a game; it’s a game of power and who controls it…. You are like the generals that command armies. We’re in a state of war. This Proposition 187 is a declaration of war against the Latino/Chicano community of this country.”
Art Torres, former California state senator and current chairman of the California Democratic Party:
“Que viva la causa [long live our cause]. It is an honor to be with the new leadership of the Americas…. Power is not given to you. You have to take it. Remember, 187 is the last gasp of white America in California. Understand that. And people say to me on the Senate floor when I was in the Senate, ‘Why do you fight so hard for affirmative action programs?’ And I tell my white colleagues, ‘Because you’re going to need them.’” (Laughter.)
Henry Cisneros, former secretary of Housing and Urban Development in the Clinton administration, former president of Univision (Spanish language television), former mayor of San Antonio, who now builds homes in Hispanic markets:
“The future of our people and the future of our country is literally in your hands. Our numbers are growing dramatically…. I’m saying to you as goes the Latino population will go California, and as goes California will go the United States of America. My friends, the stakes are big; this is a fight worth making…. We should stand for the proud Latino future. We must stand for the people, now more than ever, and then be prepared to fight.”
In the past several decades, Tancredo explained, America’s schools, the popular media, and even the churches have said there is nothing of value in Western Civilization or America. They have preached the doctrine of “radical multiculturalism.” He is not referring to the idea that Americans should accept and appreciate the many different cultures that enrich our lives and our nation. Tancredo is referring to what he calls the “cult of multiculturalism,” which has as its goal the elimination of the concept of America as a nation state.
He said the multiculturalists also encourage immigrants to refrain from integrating into the American mainstream. Instead, immigrants are urged to retain their native languages and cultures and even their political connections to their countries of origin.
“This is what’s worrisome,” he told the gathering and tells people wherever he goes. “I believe that massive legal and illegal immigration combined with multiculturalism represents the greatest danger this country has ever faced. It will eventually determine not just what kind of a nation we are in the future; it will determine whether we will be a nation at all. This is the dagger pointed at the heart of America.”
Jim Gilchrist, Chris Simcox,
and the Minutemen
On October 15 in Arlington Heights, Illinois, about one hundred Minuteman supporters from that state and others attended the first summit of the Chicago Minuteman Project. They heard speakers discuss securing the borders and reducing legal immigration.
Hundreds of protesters rallied outside the school where the meeting was held. One demonstrator’s sign read: “The Minutemen Used to Wear White Sheets.”
A “small but belligerent group of self-described anarchists” blocked the entrance to the school, the Chicago Tribune reported. Five protestors were arrested for assaulting police officers.
Rosanna Pulido, co-founder of the Chicago Minuteman Project and the granddaughter of Mexican immigrants, said several attendees did not enter the building because they feared for their safety.
“It’s disappointing that people here could not exercise their First Amendment rights,” Pulido said.
On October 30, the California Minuteman chapter held a “Secure Our Borders” rally on the steps of the state capitol building in Sacramento. The rally drew about two hundred supporters and an estimated six hundred counter-demonstrators from “immigrant-rights groups.”
Among the speakers were Jim Gilchrist; Tim Donnelly, leader of the California Minuteman chapter; Lupe Moreno, president of Latino Americans for Immigration Reform; and Frank George, a naturalized Cuban immigrant and spokesman for the Texas Minutemen.
Counter-protestors included Nativo Lopez, president of the Mexican American Political Association, and Peter Camejo, former Green Party candidate for California governor.
“We believe in no borders,” said counter-demonstrator Tomas Alejo. “A lot of humans are migrating not because they want to, but because they need to. We deny what the Minutemen are about.”
Three counter-demonstrators were arrested, including one for kicking a California Highway Patrol officer in the stomach, then attacking a city officer with pepper spray.
“Their intent is to trample our Constitution,” Gilchrist declared. “Their goal is not our domestic tranquility, it is our destruction. If it’s a war the anarchists want, then damn it, it will start here.”
Bush and Other Elites Merging
U.S., Mexico, and Canada
For many years, Americans have demanded our federal officials do their job and defend against a foreign invasion entering through our nation’s open borders, the seriousness of which was intensified a thousand-fold with the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.
Throughout the accelerating process, Americans have been dumbfounded that our government won’t police our borders. Why, why, why? has been the question in a million patriot minds.
Now we know the answer, which became perfectly clear in the spring of 2005, except most Americans don’t know about it. Open borders and illegal immigration are part of a larger scheme to discard American sovereignty in favor of a regional government, a plan to which President Bush has already agreed to privately, but with little explanation of what’s really happening.
My ‘Vacation’ with the FBI
Challenges were expected in writing this book. However, becoming the focus of a multi-state national security investigation reaching “the highest levels of government” was not one of them. Due to factors I still don’t completely understand, I was questioned about letters sent to the FBI warning of possible biological and suitcase-sized nuclear weapons near the July 2004 site in Boston and in other states. You read that correctly.
Coincidental circumstances surrounding my visit with extended family in Binghamton, New York, that month somehow led to this very unpleasant ordeal. I’m recounting the experience in this book because what happened to me relates to the illegal-alien invasion, massive immigration, and the “war on terror.”
