No Borders No Country



By Michael Greer

I haven’t written very much since the election. Frankly, I couldn’t. I haven’t known what to say. Everything I feared, everything I worked the last 20 years to prevent is now happening.  

This country is not the country I grew up in, not even the country my daughters grew up in. Not the country of Frank Capra movies, of It’s a Wonderful Life, of Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. It’s not the country of Martin Luther King or Caesar Chavez.  

The country I grew up in proudly pledged allegiance to our flag, sang our Anthem as well as God Bless America. We believed in two genders and marriage was between a man and a woman. We believed in equal justice, equal rights.  We believed in the Constitution and Rule of Law. We believed our Rights came from God not man.  

What got me actively involved in politics was illegal immigration. It is the issue that troubles me most. I had always believed we were a nation of laws and that our representatives and law enforcement took oaths of office to uphold our laws and Constitution. I thought they took this seriously.  

It was a gut punch for me when the 2000 census reported two things. The first was that there were 11 MILLION illegal aliens in America. I remember the Amnesty Bill of 1986. We were told it was the “ONE TIME ONLY” Amnesty for the approximately ONE million illegal aliens. It said the aliens would have background checks and have to learn English BEFORE they were granted amnesty. It said there would be 5000 more border patrol officers added, the border secured and illegal immigration ended. I did some research and learned 2.8 MILLION were given amnesty NOT 1 million. I learned they didn’t do background checks or require them to learn English. I learned the money for the border patrol and fence was never appropriated. All they did was rubber stamp EVERY illegal alien who applied. So, instead of ending illegal immigration we went from almost 3 million illegal aliens to 11 million. WE WERE LIED TO!  

The second thing that came from the 2000 census was that “52% of adults living in Los Angeles neither speak or read English”. Another gut punch.  Of course MANY illegal aliens DO speak and read English so that means MORE than 52% are not natural born Americans. This is when I realized I had to pay more attention to politics. I had been busy raising children, working, more focused on personal and local issues. And foolishly I believed the people representing us were following the law. I believed there were checks and balances and if they weren’t followed the media would let us know. OH, FOOLISH ME!  

I started paying attention. I had always been an avid reader but of fiction mostly. I started reading non-fiction and doing research. I remember the way border patrol officers Ramos and Compean were treated and how the illegal alien drug dealer they wounded was treated under Bush Jr.  When Bush appointed Chaney’s Chief of Staff’s wife as head of ICE I cried because I realized he wasn’t serious about illegal immigration.  

When Bush tried to pass another amnesty I was outraged but I’m just one person, why would anyone care what I think.  But I wrote, emailed, and called every member of Congress to explain why amnesty was a bad idea…..and so did millions of others. I realized there were millions of “just one person” and we could make a difference. We sufficiently scared Congress into not passing amnesty. So, they finally passed the “Fence Act” to appease us. But they built less than 30 miles in 10 years. They slow walk the things they know they have to do but don’t want to do.  

And that was another tragic realization I came to.  Congress doesn’t give a rats ass what we want. WE the PEOPLE, on both the Right and Left, have made it ABUNDANTLY CLEAR we want our border secure and illegal immigration ended. Certainly that was the major reason we elected Donald Trump.  

I understood clearly, however, given the opportunity, the Democrats WOULD pass amnesty. Democrats keep telling us there are 11 million illegal aliens. They have repeated that number for the last 21 years. That’s how stupid they think we are? The border patrol says between one and three million cross our border EVERY YEAR, so obviously we are closer to 30 million than 11 million. THE LEFT, THE MEDIA, AND RINO’S LIE!!!  

When Ted Kennedy changed our immigration laws in the 60’s from merit based immigration to 3rd World countries he told us it would have no effect on our culture. No rational person could possibly believe that. Bringing in poor, uneducated people who don’t speak our language (and aren’t encouraged to. “Press 1 for Spanish”), have lived under oppression, and are used to being told what to do, IS going to change our culture.  

The Left had realized with a population of educated, middle class people they couldn’t win the War of Ideas, so they became  intent on replacing the population. That is their goal. They don’t give a rat’s ass about the illegal aliens either. No one would encourage people to put their lives in the hands of coyotes, pay thousands (or promise to), cross deserts to come to an “Institutionally RACIST” country if they cared about them.  

I KNEW as soon as Biden was sworn in caravans of illegals would flood across our border. It is physically painful for me to think about what this is turning our country into. If I could go to the border and physically stop them I would.  

What should inform EVERYONE of the intentions of the Left is that they are arresting American citizens for not wearing a mask but are allowing millions of illegal aliens (many with COVID) to be released into our country without restriction. No tests, no quarantine, nothing. Citizens need to be quarantined but not illegal aliens. Europeans and other foreigners must quarantine in another country for two weeks before they can enter America but not illegal aliens.  

And while we have a SERIOUS homeless problem including  thousands of VETERANS (who fought for this country), they are spending $860 million to put illegal aliens into hotels. They are also building more holding facilities on the border (because they expect millions more to come) at $70,000 a BED!! Did any of the business owners whose businesses have permanently closed gotten $70,000?  How’s that $1400 doing for ya?  

The Left is SOOOO concerned with “fairness”. Can they please tell us what is “fair” to those across the ocean who are immigrating to America LEGALLY? They must have a sponsor and be able to support themselves. What is “fair” about them waiting 10 or 15 years to enter our country when illegal aliens can just walk across our border?  

What most people don’t realize is that most of the illegal aliens crossing our border have been instructed to seek refugee status. Why? Refugees get LOTS of free benefits illegal aliens don’t get.  
  • Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) formerly known as AFDC 
  • Medicaid 
  • Food Stamps 
  • Public Housing 
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI) 
  • Social Security Disability Insurance 
  • Child Care and Development Fund 
  • Job Opportunities for Low Income Individuals (JOLI) 
  • Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) 
  • Postsecondary Education Loans and Grants 
  • Refugee Assistance Programs 
  • Earned Income Tax Credit and Additional Child Tax Credit11 

I have watched over the years illegal aliens get more protections and more benefits at taxpayer expense. I have spoken to the LA Sheriff’s Civilian Oversight Commission at least a dozen times asking the Sheriff to work with ICE and ENFORCE THE LAW. I spoke to dozens of City Councils to ask them to join the law suite against the California Sanctuary State. I’ve done everything I possibly could to stop the illegal alien invasion.  

Illegal immigration IS changing our country. Thousands are being sent to Conservative districts to change them into Liberal districts. Cities and towns are given no choice to turn away illegals sent to them when their schools and social services have no ability to absorb them.  Overcrowded cities become dirty and crime ridden.  

The UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development plans on no nation states, no borders. The EU erased the borders of the European countries and Biden has just erased ours.  

May God help us.
