Reader voices concerns over immigration fight

The 13th amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America declares, “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude shall exist within the United States.” The 14th amendment further details, “All persons naturalized in the United States, are citizens of the United States and the state wherein they reside.” The two amendments were ratified in 1865 and 1868, respectively, immediately following the bloody American Civil War. I point this out to as further evidence that the two amendments were enacted to specifically address the institution of slavery.

That being said, my attempt here is to address the current immigration issue that seems to have the United States Congress at a virtual standstill. It is amazing that all these elected officials are having such a struggle trying to figure out what “illegal” means. The Democratic Party seems to be moving at unabated speed to naturalize untold millions of illegal immigrants as citizens of this country. The fact that there is a legal process for naturalization has just been pushed to the sidelines. What about the people out there on the legal list waiting to be naturalized? They elected to honor the Constitution by taking the legal route to citizenship.

To not enforce the sovereignty of the United States’ southern border that allows floods of illegals to cross into this country is an intentional tactic of the Democratic Party. They are rolling the dice in the gamble that through “hook or crook” these illegals will somehow become voters. There are already efforts afoot to not require identification, or proof of citizenship, at the voting stations. How ridiculous is that? The objective, in my view, is to solidify the Hispanic bloc vote now, and in the future, at an 80-90 percent level. When you combine that bloc with the black bloc vote, already at 90 percent plus, the whole voting process in many parts of the country becomes a moot exercise.

If my assessment is valid, the United States becomes virtually a one party system. The Republican Party will have, in actuality, been neutralized. Under a “one party rule” situation, the United States Constitution becomes a historic relic and is rendered void. That is exactly what President Obama promised us in his campaign for the presidency. He vowed to “transform” this country. One has to give him credit that he did not lie to us and that he is well on his way to that vowed “transformation.” Already, there is practically no opposition from the Republication Party.

Black Americans, most whose ancestry goes back to the slavery era of this country, in spite of the most horrific inhumanities imaginable of that era, are in lock-step with the Democratic Party on this immigration effort. With full knowledge of the hardships their slave ancestors endured to become citizens, Black Americans seem perfectly satisfied with people illegally stealing across the southern border and on to a path to citizenship. And they get a bonus if the illegal is a pregnant woman.

It appears to me the Democratic Party has no regard for black history. Why should they? The votes are already in the bag. Hell, at least the slaves were here “legally!”
