Who has rights? All people, including the unborn? Or just aspiring immigrants and their sponsors?
A historical irony that has apparently received no significant attention to date, occurred on January 22, 1973. On that day, former President Lyndon B. Johnson, passed away from a heart attack at his ranch near Stonewall, Texas, and the United States Supreme Court voted to legalize the abortion of unborn children throughout the United States of America.
While serving as the 36th U.S. President and presiding over veto-proof majorities in both houses of the U.S. Congress, Lyndon Johnson led Congress to pass numerous acts that accelerated the rise of socialism in America, but few Congressional acts had such long-term negative impact and damage to the fabric of the United States, than the ” Immigration Reform Act ” of 1965.
In the 50 years since of a bill President Johnson, Senator Phillip Hart and Senator Ted Kennedy insisted would have minimal impact on America, the opposite disastrous consequences have unfolded. An estimated 35 million legal immigrants have entered America, approximately three times as many as would have entered under the older law. Add to that total an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants, and we have added 47 million new immigrants. This translates to at least 16% or 1 in 6 American residents being foreign born.
Originally touted as reform meant to allow immigrants with ” in-demand skills and talents”, the ” chain migration provision ” allows a legal immigrant to eventually bring over their entire extended family, regardless of skills needed for our labor market. Add increased non-enforcement of our immigration laws, defining “anchor babies ” as citizens and failure to control our own borders, and America is literally being flooded with untold millions of impoverished, poorly educated, unskilled immigrants who often know little or no English. Thus millions of these immigrants depend upon the welfare state, and are a burden rather than an asset to both our economy and our nation.
The frightening fact remains, that substantial majorities of these immigrants do not share nor appreciate American culture, values or religious beliefs and are reluctant or unwilling to assimilate. Yet both our government and our big corporations insist we continue to keep the immigration floodgates open because they falsely claim, ” we need their job skills “.
Much rhetoric has been spoken, and untold numbers of debates have transpired, regarding our right of life as a human being from the moment of conception, vs. the vociferous opponents who claim every woman has a privacy-related right to abortion of a yet-unborn child. The same day in history that the architect of our nightmarish immigration policy debacle, Lyndon B Johnson, passed away, Roe v. Wade was decided by the U.S. Supreme Court, taking the fundamental human right to life away from unborn children making abortion-on-demand for pregnant women the law of the land.
Since that infamous day 42 years ago, approximately 58 million unborn babies have been murdered by having women’s pregnancies deliberately terminated. Actuaries at life insurance companies and census bureau estimate that there would be about 57 million more native born Americans – reared to adulthood in our culture and entering our schools and the American labor force, absent Roe v. Wade. About 30 million of them would already be in the American workforce.
What a terrible irony, that essentially the same politically liberal crowd who favor mass murder of unborn children and have had a huge hand in cutting 57 million people from our native born population, also favor massive foreign immigration of poor, uneducated unskilled people in the tens of millions, because ” we need their job skills ” !
Painfully obvious is the inconvenient truth that our policymakers, legislators and courts have clearly failed to realize or admit, that legalized child murder, or abortion, created the so-called “labor shortage” these unprincipled liberals press to remedy with massive legal and illegal immigration. Clearly, the Constitutional Conservatives in America are long overdue in recognizing and speaking out about the startlingly clear link that exists between legalized abortion and mass immigration and multiculturalism that is steadily destroying America.
Christians and Constitutional Conservatives should heed the urgent call to end child murder via abortion, as well as heed the call to secure our border, drastically reduce legal immigration end our “anchor baby ” policy and simply and systematically deport all or most of the illegals presently squatting in our nation. Illegals and would-be legal immigrants are entitled to basic human rights, but those rights do not include unrestricted entry or residence in America.
Meanwhile, under current law since Roe v. Wade legalized abortion, unborn American children have no human rights at all ! ” Immigrant Rights “? Their ” rights ” are derived strictly from their country of origin. Clearly, American Constitutional Conservatives must act immediately to join the battle to stop the mass murder of the unborn, and restore basic human rights-the right to life-to every unborn child. Christians and Constitutional Conservatives, “sound the alarm!” Untold millions of unborn children have their perilous fate in our hands. The decision of life or death for these innocent babies is ours to make. My desperate hope is that America will decide to act, and save them.
