I’m going to pass along this email from an OD reader about the upcoming fight against amnesty:
As the great granddaughter of an Alabamian CSA captain, I read your blog regularly. (I’ve attached a picture of his grave to prove that I’m not some troll). My great aunt was one of the founders of the Mobile UDC (obit attached). I’m spending the day contacting bloggers like yourself who care about this country. I myself am ready for secession, but short of that, I want to do everything I can to stop this Mexican invasion that will surely turn us into a third world banana republic faster than it’s already headed.
I’m really tired of this whole “nation of immigrants” concept. The US is not seen by prospective immigrants or even by many elected officials as a sovereign nation. It is seen as an “immigrant country” that is permanently available for world colonization. The idea that the USA is the national home of the American people, who should be able to control the size and quality of its population, doesn’t even occur to them. This has made mass immigration (legal and illegal) the greatest threat to our national survival that we have ever faced.
I’m attaching links to pdfs put out by FAIR and NumbersUSA. The bill is set for a vote on June 10 and has to be stopped in the Senate. I don’t trust Boehner as far as I can throw him. I was hoping you could link these and ask people who read your blog to call their senators. There are some southern Senators – Rep and Dem who are on the fence, so perhaps your blog could reach some of those people. Anti-amnesty senators are saying that they aren’t receiving the same number of calls as they did in 2006/2007.
Here are the links:
Thank you for all you do,
I haven’t written much about this issue because it doesn’t interest me anymore. I haven’t made one phone call because I no longer believe in the system.
I’m sick of seeing the same people in Congress pushing amnesty for illegal aliens. It didn’t matter how many times we defeated the DREAM Act in Congress. Obama implemented it anyway with an executive order last summer and 99 percent of the people who applied for his amnesty got it.
Here in Alabama, we passed HB 56, but that too was gutted by the federal courts. In April, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to take the case on appeal. In the 1990s, Congress passed the Immigration Act of 1996 which states that “immigrants unlawfully present in the United States for 180 days but less than 365 days must remain outside the United States for three years unless they obtain a pardon.”
In the year 2013, illegal aliens are invited to the White House by the president, appear in public with the First Lady, and appear on the cover of Time magazine and travel around the country to give speeches in cities like Birmingham.
The people who are fighting
abolition, integration, amnesty, gun control, abortion, gay marriage and so on have the wrong priorities. Like the election and reelection of Obama, or the Immigration Act of 1965, the existence of the Union with the Northern states is the only thing that makes any of the above possible.
I don’t care if the Republican Party wins or loses in “bluish-getting-bluer states like California.” I don’t think we need to change our beliefs to pander to and “look like the rest of America” either. I just want to get us out of America.
Let’s hope the nation doesn’t survive! Those who are sick and tired of playing this game can meet up with us at the 2013 League of the South conference on June 21st to discuss the real solution.
