The illegal immigration topic certainly brings out passion from players on both sides of the issue. The underlying problems the country is facing only draws fire from American’s and hurt feelings from those who truly seek that better life. However, America is a country built on immigrants; most came legally and passed through Ellis Island. As the immigration debate festers to the boiling point it will be up to Americans to solve the deluge of problems ahead of the voters.
From time to time a perspective presents itself that may be thought, but never said out loud. The following is a narrative from a recently retired Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent who spent more than 20 years protecting the country on the frontlines and this his narrative.
By John Sakelarides
In recent organized demonstrations held in Arizona, "protesting" the newly enacted Arizona state law addressing illegal immigration, photos were taken of the "protestors". Below, you will see the actual photos of the signs and banners displayed by those who oppose the State of Arizona's sovereign right to protect its citizens and to ensure their territorial sovereignty remains intact.
Imagine if you will, what the Socialist mainstream media, and Socialists themselves would be saying if similar signs were displayed demanding that "Latinos" be deported back to Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, and other Latin American countries.
The signs and their creators/displayers would be depicted as racists. However in this age of "Social Justice" and Political Correctness which is anything BUT correct, the images you are about to see, are acceptable and the Socialist mainstream media would not DARE show these photos to the American public. Why, you ask? Because it would be obvious to anyone with half a brain that those who are "demanding immigrant rights" (translation: the right of illegal aliens to enter this country at will regardless of the law) are the ones who are perpetrating a racist and nationalistic agenda.
It would result in the American public becoming very angry. And what the plan is for us to remain asleep at the switch until it's too late and we wake up one morning to find that we have been annexed by Mexico.
No one is opposing legal immigration. We, as a country, take in more immigrants a year than the rest of the world combined. Yet, in the eyes of those who embrace the La Raza ideology, embrace the formation of the province of Atzlan in the American Southwest, those who embrace the ideology of the La Reconquista, or reconquering of the American southwest, WE, the people of the United States, are the "illegal aliens" and that they, the "indigenous people of the entire South and North American continents, have the undisputed right to migrate wherever they want within this continent.
If you doubt me, just look at the pictures below. This ideology is not limited to just a radical few. This ideology fuels the National Council of La Raza Inc., MEChA, LULAC, and other so-called "immigrant rights" organizations, but to the overwhelming majority of Hispanic illegal aliens in this country.
When a particular nationality marches in this country, displaying their nation's flag, and they are here in violation of this country's sovereignty, they are by definition, an occupying army. The fact that the Mexican government at the very least, tacitly approves of its citizens invading this country, constitutes a de facto act of war.
The lies that are deliberately spread, such as the Arizona law will result in racial profiling despite the inconvenient truth that the law forbids racial profiling, that illegal immigration is not a crime when the inconvenient truth is that all aspects of illegal immigration is criminal as defined in United States Code, that illegals only want to improve their life when in fact they have no intentions of becoming Americans, no intentions of learning the language, no intentions in assimilating into our society, but rather are here to make as much money as they can to send home and to set up their nest egg so they can retire in their home country, are designed to make illegal immigration indistinguishable from legal immigration.
After viewing these photos, please, make copies of them and deliver them, in person, to your elected representatives and demand that they honor their oaths of office to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and to bear true faith and allegiance to the same.
It has been written that those who fail to learn from history are condemned to repeat it. After World War I, Germany had land taken from her in the Treaty of Versailles. After the Mexican-American War, the land that now comprises the American Southwest was given to the United States by Mexico in the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo.
I am going to coin a new phrase: "Nationalistas" which is defined as someone who is strongly aligned with Mexico and is a Mexican Nationalist, regardless of where they may have been born and regardless of their "citizenship."
Nationalistas, like Mr. Hitler, do not believe that international treaties should be binding. As such, they will take what they believe is "theirs" even though it violates international law and international treaties. When Hitler took the Sudetenland, in 1938, he violated the Treaty of Versailles. Those who support the Reconquista of the American Southwest, advocate the violation of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo.
Further insight as to the similarities between these two events can be found at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sudetenland
The similarities between the Sudetenland Crisis and what is happening in America over the illegal immigration issue cannot be discounted. And to add more fuel to an already raging fire, is that the German NAZI Party was the National Socialist Workers Party. When you see the photos below, you will see that those in favor of Atzlan and La Reconquista, are nothing more than National Socialists. Their nationalism is an unswerving allegiance to Mexico, even if they are American citizens by birth.
They identify themselves as being "Chicano" or "Latino" and not American. They are, by all accounts, Nationalistas. And as such, they are the "enemy" as described in the oath of allegiance to the Constitution of the United States. And they have the chutzpah to call the Arizonans who approve of the new law "Nazis". This is a case of the cast iron pot calling the stainless steel kettle black.
