Two immigrant brothers, one of whom recently became a citizen, plotted and carried out the dastardly attack on runners at the Boston Marathon. Now it comes to light in the Drudge Report that the family was on welfare for a significant period of time while the plot was being hatched. The Boston Herald, not the Globe, was able to gather this information after demanding through state legislators that the information be released.
So there you go folks; taxpayer provided bombing support was apparently the order of the day.
And it also comes to light that 99.5% of illegals end up being cleared to live and work in America. Now I ask you: Do you believe that the level of crime from the illegal community is only 1/2 of 1%? If you do, I have a bridge to sell you.
One of the biggest problems, particularly in the South, has been drunk driving by illegals with disastrous and frequently fatal results. But our government's tolerance shows no end for them. Try that one yourself and see how it works out.
In the aftermath of Boston, and not knowing what sleeper cells may be lying in wait for action anywhere in America, we need to put a hold on this bad immigration bill. It is 850 pages long, and no one has, or cares to, read it. Despite this, the political leaders of the Senate, including many Republicans want to "jam" it through just like Obamacare, and we are beginning to see just how bad that is turning out. Oh, Washington, is there anybody up there who cares about the constituents? Or are they just convenient tools to lie and pander to just before election time?
I'm all for a viable immigration system, but it needs to be one that looks after the needs of Americans first. We are a sovereign country, and it needs to be safe and secure first. No action should be taken on this bill until border security is truly done. And the verification needs to be done by some group other than DHS, the Secretary of which has already said she thinks the border is safe.
Pray for wisdom among our leaders. They must stop this irrational rush to complete a bill which will have disastrous impact on an already bad situation. America must be a place where good citizens can live their lives in peace.
Lord, Give us the strength to be fair but strong. Help us to do what we must to return America to the land of the free, not the land of tyranny. And bless those Patriots and good citizens who are willing to sacrifice to do this. Keep us every mindful of Thy presence, that we might turn to Thee for guidance. For Thy love and care are needed now more than ever. Amen.
