Dear Senator Lee,
I watched President Obama’s arguments on immigration yesterday. They are totally deceptive. Let me give you some points to consider.
Have you noticed there are almost no Caucasians in Long Beach, California? It is some of the best real estate in the United States so why doesn’t it attract other immigrant races besides Latinos? If the woman with the chemical engineering degree was typical who introduced Obama yesterday at his press briefing, why isn’t Long Beach a growing high tech location?
My oldest son returned from two years of missionary service there. Almost every dwelling has iron bars and a Rottweiler to guard it. Gangs, drugs, drunks, welfare and prostitutes are seen everywhere. Is that the kind of America we want more of?
Obama’s vision of immigration does not include Caucasians from Europe or Canada.
Turning attention to immigration and whatever follows, whether scheduled or not, is designed to mask the many scandals, and to move the public’s attention onto something else so they think others no longer care that Mr. Obama is a war criminal, or that any other of his crimes matter including Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the IRS Scandal, wiretapping, the attacks on the First and Fourth Amendments, etc.
Illegal immigrants know little or nothing about our Constitution, Bill of Rights or principles behind those sacred documents, nor do they care. It would be like hiring employees for McDonald’s who do not read their franchise instructions or receive the training that is required to successfully run it, and expect exceptional results.
While it is true that the net gain of new jobs are the result of startups, Obama cannot rightfully attribute startups to illegal immigration.
I cannot expect to illegally immigrate into another nation. If I tried I would expect to be jobless, sentenced, fined, imprisoned, and later sent home.
If the path to citizenship required the same American history course my teenagers had at Lone Peak High School in Highland, Utah, proven understanding of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, plus an in-depth understanding of the principles behind those sacred documents as explained in the book, “The 5000 Year Leap,” by Cleon Skousen then I’d feel better about the role of immigrants in our nation’s future. Instead, I see illegal immigration as using the force of government to redistribute wealth, a parasitical ploy to keep the distributors of welfare in power, and to further erode our society.
Lastly, please ask Senator Lee if I continue to waste my time writing up these thoughts. While I know my opinions are highly appreciated as an advisory board member of the BYU IT Department, I would like to hear from him if they have any impact in government or are just tallied and tossed by interns. One day I’d appreciate an invitation to lunch or an encouraging phone call from Senator Lee with feedback on which thoughts are of value to him and what I can do to help.
