Sorry I don't have a link for this story, but this issue has consumed me for many years and I have been saving stories that I thought were profound, I would like to share with you some of them.

Immigration in America

We all should be able to agree that none of us made a conscious willful choice for our own procreation. That decision was left to our parents. The circumstances and place where we were born had nothing to do with us. Since the world is organized under governments, we all became citizens of a particular land upon coming into this world. Each country determines their own standards for citizenship, especially for those who seek permanent entry into an adopted country. The idea that it is a 'Right' for any and all, to access the frontiers on a different land, contradicts all international law and custom.

We were all taught that America was the great melting pot. A place where the poor and down trodden could seek refuge and start a new and better life. Well, whatever validity there may be in that view, may have had some credence while there was a frontier that called for settlement; but the circumstances of today are most different. Private property is a fundamental and cherished foundation upon which our society exists. Governments have sought to enter this ownership realm, but seldom have their designs upon property brought benefits to those who settled, bought and struggled to improve their own land. Immigration policy affects every citizen, no matter where they live. Society has a trust and profound interest in the protection of the individuals that own the land, real estate and means of capital creation.

The history of immigration demonstrates that most new arrivals seek to reside within communities of their own culture. In previous eras, the vast majority moved to America because they believed that this country held the promise of a better life for them and their children. Learning the English language and adopting the values and principles of democratic participation were central in becoming Americans. Today the rules have changed. The portal of unlimited legal entry into the US are tightly regulated. Correct thinking citizens will acknowledge that unrestricted admission will change the face of this country. Again, there is no 'Right' to entry America, it is a privilege.

When a government abandons its fundamental duty, the protection of its citizen's interest; that government forfeits its legitimacy. The conscious policy of allowing illegal aliens free run across the borders, is a betrayal of the greatest magnitude. Cultural diversity in the extreme, is akin to annihilation of the very fabric that made America different from all other lands. Anyone who has traveled the world will conclude that social unrest among competing and different cultural groups is the norm. The method that America used to overcome this natural conflict tendency, was the building of bridges to all ethnic groups. This invite led to their acceptance of a Republic form of government; based upon equal justice for all, under the law. But this franchise was granted to only those who accepted the basic tenants, values and responsibilities that comes with being recognized as an American.

Today we have a government hierarchy that turns a blind eye, and shirks their primary obligation; namely, defense of the borders and shores from illegal hordes of intruders. The complexion of America is not a matter of color. It is an issue of values and culture. Only the demigod will avoid confronting this fact. The country that is deteriorating is one that chooses to allow self denial to rule their judgment. Aspiring to reflect 'Third World' life, is suicidal for a nation. The Statists that wish to transform America into a helpless body of dependent vassals, encourage this swelling of the underclass. As long as voting privileges are given to those untrained in the history and traditions of America, the forces of dissolution will prevail. The end result will be the Balkanization of tribal interests. Civil unrest will become common place and violence will be the means to decide conflicts.

Those who believe that America should be a "We Are The World" microcosm, are a greater threat to this Republic than a dozen divisions of any hostile army. Immigration doesn't have to be a destructive prophecy. The rules for an orderly process of invite could and need to be reestablished. All perspective applicants, as part of the submission procedure, need to study and have a working knowledge of the American system of representative government. They must commit to educational schooling in the English language, traditional customs and socially acceptable standards of responsible good citizenship. Finally they need to be willing, and be sincere, to take a sacred oath of allegiance to their new country, that supersedes their former land, culture and foreign family obligations.

With an objective formula we will encourage the entry of the best that the world has to offer. Those who desire to become more than what they are, would be welcomed. America could then return to a nation of hope for seekers of freedom. Freedom for all, and quality of life for the many, is the prize. In order to achieve this balance in society, our heritage and principles must reaffirm the necessity that we become one people, under God, and accept the uniqueness of American values, culture and traditions. Without this affirmation, we will dissolve into regional spheres of hostile cultural factions. Accept American values or let secession begin.

If multiculturalism is left to dismantle the institutions and civility of our society, only the total and complete breakup of America will be her future. The dozens of ethnic groups that live within the US as subculture units, have shown little interest in assimilation. If they reject becoming Americans, America will no longer remain as a beacon of light in a world of darkness. It is the duty of every citizen to light their own candle and bring us out of this blindness.

The pattern is clear and the destructive results are obvious. Unlimited and unrestricted illegal immigration is changing America beyond any recognition of its past glory. When Rome granted citizenship to foreign subjects who were not committed to the principles of Roman law and culture, they began their demise into chaos. America is repeating this same mistake, without even the pretext of formal citizenship. Amnesty for illicit invaders is American genocide. Your government is not showing compassion, it is expanding their empire over dependent plebeians. Our fate will be reduced to that of slaves, serving patricians, while controlled by praetorian guards. The future of this undeniable holocaust will be a new 'Dark Age'. One that will be presided over by Caligula?nd fought out in coliseums of horror. It is time that each of us becomes our own gladiator, and have the will to do battle, with "Strength and Honor" . . .
