Immigrant protesters show we are asleep at the wheel


Asleep at the wheel
by James H. Reza

I can almost assure you that everyone who is a true American was sickened when you saw  multitudes of protesters carrying Mexican flags protesting the new Immigration Reform Bill in the Senate. This display of Mexican flags should give you a heads up on where these protesters allegiance lies.  Their hearts are in Mexico and their bellies are in the United States.

As an American of Mexican Heritage I want to set the record straight,  American Hispanics are not all thrilled with illegal  immigration.  I, for more than 20 years, tried desperately to bring this national debacle to the attention of the American people. I had the privilege of writing for several newspapers, appeared on national and local TV and radio programs, and was asked by  many political groups to address this serious problem affecting my  former community (north  Fort  Worth), city, state, and our country… 


Many will question how I can speak  on this subject with some authority.  My simple answer is: I lived with the problem!  Trust me, it was no picnic.   Never in my life (I’m 68)  had I witnessed the lawlessness, the  deterioration of my community, and the black market criminal underground activities attributed to the influx of illegal immigrants.

To add injury to insult,  politicians soon caved in to the many demands of illegal immigrants.  Notably: bilingual education, bilingual ballots, welfare aid, free medical care, etc. Through all this national disgrace allowed by our  politicians, have you all noticed that no one ever blames the useless, corrupt, and disgraceful government of Mexico? In contrast, they lambaste and criticize our country. How does that grab you?

When I addressed the dangers of our porous border between Mexico and the United States,  and the lax security of our nation, no one paid attention.  As I observed the situation, the problem was perceived to be between American Hispanic communities and illegal immigrants. White Americans it seemed assumed that the problem was not theirs to deal with.  In other words they were asleep at the wheel.  However, 9-11 soon woke them up. Lets be honest with each other here, white  Americans vote in far larger numbers than Hispanics do. And most  politicians (Democrats and Republicans) in our city, state, and  federal governments are white.  Thus, who is more suited to fix this national disaster?  I’m sure most of you know what the  answer is.

In summation, I’m pleading with white American voters to join me in sending our politicians (Democrats and Republicans) a strong message that we will not tolerate illegal  immigrants telling us how to make government policy that will make it  easier for them to break our laws.  Hope you will join me in this endeavor in our upcoming elections.
