Illegal aliens, amnesty, and Warren County

With many Democrats and Republicans now backing a bill to grant de facto citizenship to illegals and their families, our country could be about to experience change as it’s never seen before. Though California, and perhaps Texas, would be most affected, Mississippi and Warren County would experience its effects as well. Is this bill a positive or a negative for Vicksburg and Warren County? If the latter, what can we do to prevent the bill from becoming law? Should it be voted into law, what do we need to do to prepare for the changes it will engender?

  1. In my opinion, our present congress is composed of fools and liars. A prime example of the deceit with which they are capable is the pending immigration reform bill that would grant amnesty to millions of lawbreakers, saddle us taxpayers with (another) unbearable tax burden, and forever change the America which we know and love. I have taken the time to email and call each of our three national congressmen to express my strong dissatisfaction with their efforts. If you would like to contact them yourself, whether to express approval or disapproval, following are their email sites and telephone numbers:

    Senator Lott:

    202-224-6253

    Senator Cochran:

    202-224-5054

    Congressman Thompson:

    202-225-5876

    Congressman Thompson’s email site for some reason (probably to discourage you from contacting him) requires a 9-digit zip code, but the site does provide a link for determining same.

  2. The bill in its present form frightens me. Previously, all immigrants were required to learn our language, laws and customs. A wholesale change of that requirement would not only seriously criple our economy, which really requires one language; but it would be an insult to all those who have worked hard to become patriotic citizens.

  3. Skipper, this bill will change the face of America forever. Have we no leaders who are interested in the future of our country? I don’t think so. They are concerned with power and money – and that’s all. I don’t know where Lott, Cochran and Thompson stand on the bill, but I’ve emailed and called all three to express my objections to it.

  4. Interesting observation here…

    About the time our original thirteen states adopted their new constitution in 1787, Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh, had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years earlier:
    “A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government.”
    >>
    “A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury.”
    >>
    “From that moment on, the majority always vote for the
    candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship.”
    >>
    “The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years.”
    >>
    “During those 200 years, those nations always progressed through the following sequence:
    >>
    1. from bondage to spiritual faith;
    2. from spiritual faith to great courage;
    3. from courage to liberty;
    4. from liberty to abundance;
    5. from abundance to complacency;
    6. from complacency to apathy;
    7. from apathy to dependence;
    8. From dependence back into bondage”
    >>
    Professor Joseph Olson of Hemline University School of Law, St. Paul, Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning the 2000 Presidential election:
    >>
    Number of States won by:
    Gore: 19
    Bush: 29
    >>
    Square miles of land won by:
    Gore: 580,000
    Bush: 2,427,000
    >>
    Population of counties won by:
    Gore: 127 million
    Bush: 143 million
    >>
    Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by:
    Gore: 13.2
    Bush: 2.1
    >>
    Professor Olson adds: “In aggregate, the map of the territory Bush won was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of this great country. Gore’s territory mostly encompassed those citizens living
    in government-owned tenements and living off various forms of government welfare…”
    >>
    Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the “complacency and apathy” phase of Professor Tyler’s definition of democracy, with some forty percent of the nation’s population already having reached the “governmental dependency” phase.
    >>
    If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty million criminal invaders called illegals and they vote, then we can say goodbye to the USA in fewer than five years.
