There is news that, I hope, will encourage you to have the courage to think about what you really want. Not just what you think you can get.
For example, is Big Brother technology to process every job application through a Mark-o-the-Beast central government computer (E-verify) what you really want? Or is it what you think you have to settle for to accommodate a few noisy Republicans who are ignorant of the fact that E-verify denies work to the same number of citizens as it does unauthorized immigrants? Senator Rubio and Obama are in agreement that American businesses should be hamstrung with this monster.
How about “fines”? All the big talk in Washington is that immigration reform will give a very tortuous “path to citizenship” for “illegals”, but only after they pay stiff fines for violating our laws which, a few of us know very well, were humanly impossible for them to obey or they would have gladly obeyed them.
A few of us know better, yet are afraid to publicly press for what we really want. We don’t have the resources to go for something so ambitious as a plan actually based on reality, that will actually work, that will actually be best for both immigrants and citizens. We are powerless. No million dollar lobbyists. Congressmen in other districts won’t even answer our letters to them. So the most we can hope for is to exert our tiny influence towards picking the least irrational plan bubbling around Washington and hope our ounce of influence can help it outweigh the worse alternative.
My news is responses I have received to a daring, “this is what we really want” immigration solution. Immigration unrestricted by any number at all, but limited only by the basic security and health concerns that we already have. (Checks for criminal background, and highly contageous diseases.)
My news is not just what responses I got, but who I got them from. I got them from three of the most listened to people by the conservative Republicans most resistant to reform of the magnitude I propose. The editor of WorldNetDaily news, radio evangelist Jan Markel, and NY times best selling author of The Harbinger, advertized profusely by WorldNetDaily News, Jonathan Cahn.
WND editor Ron Strom wrote on Christmas Day, before publishing my article, “Dave, I did like the unique angle of importing millions of missing workers….Thanks.”
Importing millions of missing workers – a WND editor who works with Michelle Bachman, Tom Tancredo, and Pat Buchanan, likes that? Amazing! More about how anti-immigrant they are: today, here, staff WND reporter Taylor Rose accuses Senator Rubio of Republicide (“amnesty”), quoting FAIR’s Bob Dane as WND’s authority on how to destroy the Republican party. Evil business people have gotten to Rubio, alas, in their lust for cheap labor.
Dane, the measure of reason, is quoted: “With this high unemployment it is going to be difficult to convince the working class why they should support candidates that favor the importation of cheap labor” that will displace their jobs….All we really need to do is just enforce our current laws and give a mandatory e-verify.”
Strom gave my article its headline, “The Importing Taxpayers Solution.” Much better than the boring headline I had.
Jan Markell wrote, on January 13, “It’s interesting and good. What are you suggesting I do with
this? ~ Jan” I had sent her links to the WND article, and also to my 5 part series here, posted January 7, with a cover letter featuring the cosmic “coincidences” that point to a connection God is making between abortion, immigration, our national debt, and our future.
I wrote to Jonathan Cahn, and got this response from his church:
Thanks for sharing and for your encouragement re The Harbinger.
We will be sending you some free gifts, as well as our monthly devotional magazine, Sapphires.
Thanks for all you have shared; it is very interesting.
May the Lord bless you and pour out upon you all the riches of His love and grace.
In His Love and Service,
