No Defence for Defending Illegals

U.S. Constitution reads in Section 8 "The Congress shall have the Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States."

Notice that defence now spelled defense comes before general welfare. Additionally to defend the country (national security) comes before any other responsibility. Yet, Congress and the executive Branch continue to ignore their first priority and focus on their recognized responsibilities second or less priorities. This document, U.S. Constitution, was written very intentionally as to where the words were placed and even to what words were capitalized. These intentions were part of the reason it is took so long for adoption.

Also, after paying the debts, the collected money is to first go to national defense or national security as we so call it today. Yet how many times do we hear people complaining about so much money going to defense where it should be directed to the general welfare? Protecting our country's border is the first priority or as some would say it is Job #1.

I was reminded of this once after listening to numerous U.S. elected official continue to deny this primary responsibility and reading about this alarming trend. A new study by the Pew Hispanic Center suggested that 8% of all babies born in this country are from 4% of the population and that population is illegal immigrants. Common sense seems to have flown the chicken coop and replaced by self serving interests (more votes to keep corrupt elected officials in office) especially many of these births are being paid through the tax dollars of legal U.S. citizens.

Since I am a first generation Swede on my father's side, I am quite offended by those who break the law when others are denied entry into this country. My father's family entered through Ellis Island along with millions of others and had to be sponsored by a current American citizen.

My grandmother being an incredible woman actually had her brother immigrate to this country from Sweden 20 years earlier, establish a farm in Northern Wisconsin, become a naturalized citizen and then sponsor the rest of her family. Later they applied for U.S. Citizenship through the proper channels. Yes she wanted a better life, but she did it legally as did millions of other immigrants during the early 1900's. This is the essence of the Rule of Law and it is the second reason (establish Justice) why the United States of America became a nation. (See the preamble of the U.S. Constitution.)

Being Scandinavian and a history buff, probably some of my ancestors were Vikings. These individuals invaded other European countries. They were not considered illegals, but were call invaders because their behaviors consisted of robbing, murdering and kidnapping. (Of course the Vikings were not the only ones engaged in such behaviors, but they were as feared by many and I am not condoning these behaviors.)

So what is the difference between these behaviors of over 1,000 years ago and the behaviors of those who cross into the U.S. illegally? The people of Arizona have to live with the behaviors of these invaders a.k.a. illegal immigrants and cannot have "domestic Tranquility" as noted in the preamble of the U.S. Constitution. Once again legal, contributing U.S. citizens suffer at the hands of the very government that was charged to protect them. There are no valid arguments to support illegal immigrants and the continued abandonment of this Constitutionally mandated responsibility.

Our Tax Bailout Money Finally Creates Jobs – in Mexico

by Curtis Coleman at The New South Conservative

Some of that $50 billion of our tax money that was used to bailout General Motors last year is finally creating jobs – in Mexico. With the U.S. economy losing 131,000 jobs last month, General Motors announced last week that it will invest $500 million to produce a new vehicle and eight-cylinder engines in a plant in northeastern Mexico. The investment in the GM plant in Ramos Arispe, Coahuila state, would generate 390 jobs, according to a company spokesman.

In April, GM announced that it had paid back $8.1 billion in loans it received from the U.S. and Canadian governments. Of that, $6.7 billion went to the U.S. treasury. But U.S. Senator Charles Grassley (R-IA) said in a letter to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that a form filed by GM showed that $6.7 billion of the tens of billions the company received was sitting in an escrow account and available to be used for repayment. ”The bottom line seems to be that the TARP loans were ‘repaid’ with other TARP funds in a Treasury escrow account. The TARP loans were not repaid from money GM is earning selling cars, as GM and the administration have claimed in their speeches, press releases and television commercials,” he wrote.

Meanwhile, Ford Motor Company is reportedly having a banner year. Although Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) claimed recently that Ford “would probably be gone” without the auto bailouts, Ford did not accept any of the billions of dollars in taxpayer-funded bailout money. Instead, Ford decided to make money the free market way, preemptively leveraging its assets and remaining afloat in exchange for debt. ...Read more
