Remember the story about a Louvre art thief? He cleverly backed his van up to that famous Paris museum and got away with many precious paintings—only to be apprehended a few blocks away. Asked why he got caught so easily, he replied: “Monsieur, I had no Monet to buy Degas to make the Van Gogh!"
Well, these ubiquitous Open Border folks have De Gaulle to feel they have nothing Toulouse!
Attacks on the long-term welfare of all US citizens by their elected representatives seem unending. With the Obama’s Administration’s popularity ratings at their lowest level in his Presidency, does he feel he has nothing to lose?
Ok, folks, you may laugh, but this long term trend has gotten deadly serious, as at every turn the Treason Lobby tries every device to get the borders open for the billionaires, the Catholic Church and the ethnic lobbies at the expense of all US citizens and others here legally.
We don’t know if this latest ploy will work. But it is coming, according to NumbersUSA’s Chris Chmielenski, whose April 29th email reports the "House Leaders plotting to add amnesty to defense bill—Tell Representative Speier to say NO to Amnesty!"
He goes on to say,
"Friends, Beginning Wednesday (4/30), the House Armed Services Committee will begin marking up the National Defense Authorization Act of 2015 (NDAA). This must-pass legislation sets the annual priorities and spending limits for the Department of Defense and is usually passed without controversy.
However, several pro-amnesty Republicans, including Majority Leader Eric Cantor, are plotting to add Rep. Jeff Denham's (R-Calif.) ENLIST Act as an amendment to the bill. The ENLIST Act would allow illegal aliens who came to the United States prior to the age of 15 to join the military, receive legal status, and possibly earn U.S. citizenship.
Not only would this bill make more than 2 million illegal aliens eligible for amnesty, but it could also be used as a vehicle by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to add the Senate-approved mass amnesty bill, S.744." [Links added by VDARE.com]
Chris then urges us all to action.
So we can watch and hope that Speier and/or others on the committee will be willing to stop this amendment. But she, like Nancy Pelosi and other members of Congress who havebeen elected from districts which are increasingly Hispanic or like Leftist San Francisco, has long succumbed to the temptation to ignore the Rule of Law about illegal aliens and vote in favor of endless unneeded immigration.
The USA, as any citizen who is not brain-dead can observe, has become so overcrowded in its urban areas that simple movement from place to place has become a chore. My home city of Washington DC is one of the worst, but having just come this week from an extensive tour around the Low Countries of Belgium and Holland, where population density is 500 people per square kilometer, I fear that our own population density will get much much worse—for no reasons except greed and fecklessness.
Even the most Open Border-minded liberal must be aware of the trend since 1965 when our immigration laws were changed.
In 1965, our population was under 200 million. Now when we number nearly 320 million and we will surely see our numbers going to 450 million by 2050—unless immigration policy is changed!
Time is running out—for more good jobs, (recall that businesses have offshored 80% of our manufacturing and automated countless US jobs) fair and democratic governance, and environmental safety, as the lust for more, more, on the part of from our elected officials and the people who have bought their votes assume more and more control of our country.
These power players don’t lack De Gaulle—but all the rest of us have plenty Toulouse!
