The following is a KSCO commentary. Here is Kay Zwerling:
The following is an encore commentary from 4-15-2006, and it is in my forthcoming book.
Weighing in on the present immigration mess – first close the borders, ignore the marchers who wish to undermine our laws, those here illegally must obey the laws, must learn English, apply for citizenship, and wait the same amount of time as those who come in legally.
No drivers’ licenses, no voting rights until they become legal citizens.
That is what I think. No more amnesty. Furthermore, no more voting ballots in any language other than English, because that is idiotic. No more pandering to foreign newcomers.
All of these related troubles stem from self-serving leaders in both political parties whose main concern is, and has always been, re-election and vying for newcomers’ votes. Those leaders left the borders open on purpose. Both political parties for over two decades are responsible for the 11 million illegals here.
Thank you President Ford, thank you George Herbert Walker Bush, thank you President Clinton, and George W. Bush, for your deliberate failures.
Since the word felon has been used so loosely, and then crossed out, I submit it is our delinquent leadership, the Presidents and Congress, who by their inaction in upholding the laws of our land, are the real felons.
There is only one special political leader like a voice in the wilderness who stands out, who for years pleaded with the legislature to protect our borders from illegals, criminals, and terrorists, and to him, we must say “Kudos to you Tom Tancredo” because you cared and you tried.
So, what is different in four years? There are probably 30 million illegals here now, and they are becoming bold and they march for their rights, like they demand Social Security, and our liberal leaders want to find a way to give it to them at the expense of We the People. We are truly losing our Country.
I am haunted by the passing words of my Cabrillo professor in 1967 who predicted that before long the United States would become a third world country.
