Maybe the dean had no idea that FORWARD graced all propaganda materials for Germany’s Social Democratic Party, Vorwärts (Forward), founded in 1876, and that it is still published monthly today and mailed to all Social Democratic Party (SPD) members. Was he trying to exclude all students who did not hold that political leaning, or was he trying to convert them all?
The German paper named FORWARD published the writings of Friedrich Engels, Kurt Tucholsky, Russian Marxist economists, the Mensheviks, and Leon Trotsky. Strangely, it refused to publish any articles by Vladimir I. Lenin.
Interestingly, Adolf Hitler sued the paper for libel in 1923 and won 6 million marks. It had claimed that Hitler was financed by “American Jews and Henry Ford.”
Because the Social Democratic Party of Germany was banned during the Nazi era, its publication, Vorwärts (Forward), stopped in 1933 but continued in Czechoslovakia until 1938 and Paris until 1940.
Perhaps the dean is not channeling this German publication, he is moving forward to globalism, ready to create with each graduating class the global citizens of tomorrow who believe in social justice, environmental justice, and gender justice.
The indoctrination into political correctness of the last decades is finally bearing fruit – campuses have become the most intolerant places in society, spaces where free and divergent speech should be embraced by all. Yet violent mobs are protesting conservatives who come to speak or debate, preventing them from exercising their freedom of speech. Hurling rocks and words such as racists and violent fascists, these intolerant mobs are engaging in the very act they are protesting against while conservatives remain peaceful.
Administrators, professors, and parents alike are complicit in the indoctrination of our youth into an anti-American culture of hatred and intolerance. They are no longer graduating with a useful, marketable degree, with knowledge that they can improve lives and our country. They are a collective group of whiny, effeminate, drug-addled, terribly misguided, without an ethical and religious compass, and filled to the brim with illogical, morally reprehensible habits and ideas.
Their professors have drilled multi-culturalism and diversity into their brains to the point that they admire primitive cultures and worship the enemies of western civilization. No graduate stops to think, but what exactly is this diversity doing for the economic success of our country? Is there tangible evidence that a company is successful because it proudly advertises its diverse work force? Do genial ideas come from a diverse work force that follows the orders of the boss? No, ideas come from the freedom to think and to raise capital, from the opportunity to develop human capital; constructive ideas do not come from divisive Marxist conversations and endless racial baiting, indoctrination, and protests about impossible equality, gender, and social justice.
The much maligned white male and the white race have developed the bulk of inventions that have created a western civilization unlike any other. Why exactly are leftists trying to dismantle it piece by piece? What are they going to replace it with? The seventh century existence of the religionists of hate and the Orwellian world of the control-freak globalists? Why are they trying to destroy every remnant of our American history, good or bad, and to replace it with their revisionist history? Isn’t that what the rabid Islamists have done with the abundant archeological evidence of our past human history which they’ve blown up and erased into sad craters of ignorance and savagery?
Shouldn’t professors teach their communism-loving students that “greater economic freedom represents greater economic development,” a longer, healthier, and happier life? Shouldn’t they inculcate the idea that a country without borders is not a country and that stemming illegal immigration and refugee resettlement from countries that are hotbeds of terrorism endangers everybody’s future? What is wrong with self-preservation, with protecting our families, children, and grandchildren? http://click.heritage.org/b0000sHeqMe0T0DU030Ep4r
We must also stop listening to the assorted alphabet soup main stream media outlets, the real purveyors of fake news, manufactured news concocted with one idea in mind, to brainwash the masses into their socialist indoctrination narrative.
We must stop watching the movies of the “bitter, unhappy, angry, divisive people of the entertainment industry” as well. As Edward D. Spitaletta said in his boycott the Academy Award email, “These arrogant, pompous, pampered, soulless individuals declare that half of Americans are racist, sexist, and bigoted for voicing our political choice through Donald Trump. Yet there can be no doubt that the entertainment industry does more to exploit, degrade, minimize, and stereotype women than Donald Trump or any other industry ever has. From Madonna and Miley Cyrus parading on stage while grabbing their crotches and allowing fans to do the same, to movies that depict women as whores, sluts, and gold-diggers dependent on their bodies for survival, to the deplorable speeches of Madonna and Ashley Judd talking about their periods in a vile manner,” Hollywood is a cesspool of degenerates who should not be role models for any generation.
My friend Carmel argued “how ‘Underdog’ cartoons turned out generations of pill popping grownups - what did Underdog do when he needed more power? He opened his ‘ring with the secret compartment’ and took the ‘power pill’ hidden inside.”
There is a real battle for our children’s minds, especially those who “don’t come from a large family and are by themselves too long,” said Carmel. The damage done may be irreversible for many of them.
No matter where the mantra FORWARD is coming from, dark Hollywood dressed in sick pink, academia, or the main stream media, it is a prescription for globalism and destruction of western civilization at the behest of billionaire elites who are in love with freedom-robbing social engineering and the desire to play God.

A mob of protesters stormed the board meeting on Tuesday, carrying signs in Spanish and English that it did not matter where or how you came from, we are all immigrants and we are all Americans. Speakers who advocate open borders argued that those arrested had not committed a crime and should not have been detained. http://wjla.com/news/local/prince-william-county-residents-speak-out-against-immigration-proposal
The fact that illegal aliens crossed into our country without visas and proper documentation is a crime. The last U.S. Census attributed the large population increase in Prince William County mostly to the illegal alien migration to the county.
Fredy Burgos, a Republican Party activist, posts regularly on Facebook examples of crimes committed daily by illegal aliens in Prince William County. Despite the protesters’ claims that illegals do not commit crimes, reality and police records speak otherwise.
In addition to illegals, counties in Virginia have to deal with the middle of the night surprise of forced resettlement of refugees in small communities that are ill-prepared to handle the influx of uneducated, illiterate, third world individuals who have no skills, do not speak our language, are often unwilling to learn it, do not understand our culture, do not accept it, do not share our religious values, and do not respect nor recognize our Constitution.
Legal immigrants throughout history have made America better by assimilating into one culture, the American culture. Back then there was no welfare state and no welfare generosity and dependency. But today’s immigrants are often here for economic benefits, welfare, and social security thanks to the leftist Open Borders policy. There is no economic boom to struggling communities who are forced to accept such refugees or close their eyes at the massive influx of illegals. In their media-driven narrative, leftists conveniently leave out the cost of welfare use, education of their children, and criminal justice system costs that counties incur in dealing with illegal aliens and refugees.
Looking at just one program, SNAP (food stamps), of the refugees who arrived in 2015, 92.5 percent received food stamps and, of those admitted in 2011, a whopping 60 percent are still receiving SNAP today. Take a trip in northern Virginia to Walmart on the days that SNAP benefits are distributed, and you will see a mass of illegal humanity, speaking languages other than English and wearing burkas and other ethnic costumes. https://www.acf.hhs.gov/sites/default/files/orr/arc_15_final_508.pdf
Our great-grandfathers had arrived here for the opportunity to make a better life for themselves and their families or future families. They had to go through Ellis Island, weeks of quarantine for infectious diseases, and some were even turned away because we wanted to keep the American public safe. And those immigrants, who cleared Ellis Island, worked very hard, built railroads, ports, tunnels, bridges, dams, roads, parks, highways, interstates, skyscrapers, and entire cities. As my good and patriotic Virginian friend had suggested, there should be “no immigration without verification and assimilation.”
Repealing the Open Borders mentality is essential. Becoming a U.S. citizen is a privilege, not a given right. Immigrants should benefit America in some way by bringing in skills and trades that are helpful in strengthening America. Immigrants must be an asset to our country, not a liability. Nobody should become a burden by drawing from our welfare system and from our social security funds built up by American workers who contributed with every paycheck into these funds. Taking social security funds without contributing to them is theft from the American people.
Given all the violent Islamist attacks on American citizens in the last years, we cannot afford to trust blindly, we must verify immigrants’ ulterior motives. “Can they prove that they are who they say they are? Can they prove that they are not criminal? What is their intent in becoming an American?”
Even though leftists claim that the demand to assimilate is “fascistic,” assimilation is necessary for numerous reasons:
1. Do the potential immigrants’ world views match the views of our founding documents?
2. Do potential immigrants intend to become Americans, or are they just drawing financial benefits, taking advantage of our American compassionate nature and generosity?
3. Will they protect and defend the Constitution and support American independence and sovereignty?
4. As Dr. Savage says, will they support our “language, borders, and culture?”
5. Are they interested in subverting America’s power, authority, and institutions with the intent of dividing our great nation?
6. Do they understand what it takes to be an American?
7. Do they want to be productive citizens?
We stand with legal immigrants who came before us and with those millions who are still awaiting the disposition of their backlogged files, immigrants who want to come to the United States legally, but live too far away. To now skip them and instead allow law breakers, border jumpers, and fence climbers to become American citizens is a slap in the face of every formerly legal resident alien who became naturalized American citizens after waiting years and years, meandering through legal hoops, learning history and civics, passing citizenship readiness tests, proving that they have what it takes to become an American, a privilege earned, not a right.
America welcomes legal immigrants with open arms and generosity but, if there is ever any doubt, after proper and thorough vetting, then, as my Virginian friend had suggested, “when in doubt, leave them out,” they don’t have what it takes to become an American.

The young woman was shopping on the 75 percent off rack of children’s clothes. Our eyes met and she smiled; in these hard times we must shop wisely to make money stretch further, she said. I remember those years in the mid-twenties, with two babies, a mom to support, and at least three part-time jobs. I never complained, blamed rich people, rioted to burn down other people’s hard work, or demanded that they turn their accumulated wealth over to me. It was a time when law and order mattered. Effort and hard work eventually paid off when I made a huge and lengthy investment in human capital – my education.
Today the only luxury the young woman allowed herself was a first baby’s Christmas ornament for her newborn. One of the only two Caucasian associates in this department store, she earns a living standing eight hours a day, waiting on demanding and often rude customers who hail from two hundred plus different countries. It is always a United Nation’s zoo, a cacophony of nationalities and people who do not have much love for America, they just enjoy its opportunities and the new found Shangri La of better treatment than poor Americans and vets get.
She has to meet impossible sales numbers set by corporate management from another planet who do not care that the economy is bad, the result of eight years of destructive Democrat Marxist activism that weakened the economy and doubled the indebtedness for generations to come. People do not have a lot of disposable income, unemployment is high, and many save money by staying home and ordering online.
Few customers want to fight the crowds and the rude salespeople who are mostly Middle Eastern and treat shoppers with contempt and rudeness just like they did in their own countries. Who wants to be friendly in a country they resent with passion? They are not even nice to the few Americans who have to work with them; they treat them like pariahs and threaten them with bodily harm if they say or do anything that might offend their Muslim sensibilities. They scream racism and bigotry for every little thing to their bosses who always take sides with the Muslims for fear that they might be considered Islamophobes. Shopping in northern Virginia is an unpleasant experience that many try to avoid.
Most of the heavily made-up Middle Eastern associates are uneducated and have no skills, they cannot possibly work anywhere else except sell merchandise in stores. There are some who do wear hijabs and some burkas. It was an interesting experience one day to go to a local computer store and to be met by an IT associate wearing a complete black tent with slits for eyes. To say that it was uncomfortable being helped by this person is an understatement. How can you relax when you cannot really see who you are talking to? I’ve seen some driving on the busy and dangerous roads of northern Virginia. I wondered if their driver’s licenses concealed their identities as well. It was an eerie experience as if I’ve been transported back in time into the seventh century slave bazaars.
I don’t know about you but I like to have a temporary friendly relationship with the person helping me spend money and, if you are rude and I can’t see you, I have to move on to shop somewhere else. But there are not many "someplace elses" left that are different from this experience.
We are fast becoming strangers in our own country, being pushed aside by a theocracy that is alien to our nation. It has not caught up yet in other parts of America but it is moving fast in that direction. If the stunt the Starbucks CEO pulled the other day, saying that he will hire 10,000 refugees from Syria instead of Americans out of work, is any indication of what is to come in the near future, our services work force will be fast replaced by laborers from unskilled nations.
There is a growing workforce in the restaurant business and landscaping, mostly people coming from south of the border, hard and conscientious workers. But they have a large family at home that takes full advantage of the generous welfare benefits in this country. This south of the border workforce has replaced high school and college students who used to work part-time to supplement their income while in school.
Collegiate Americans, lovers of activism, Bolshevism, communism, and ardent Islamophiles seem to have found a niche in the paid-protest and paid-rioters business. Non-governmental organizations (NGOs), well-funded by billionaire elites, who know that global communism is best for us, remunerate these masked, black-clad agitators really well. Anti-Americanism, raised to a fever and violent pitch, has become quite lucrative. They seem to be untouched by law and order so the mayhem and destruction continues.
We are told non-stop by the main stream media that these refugees do the jobs Americans don’t want to do. Is that really true? Illegals work for lower wages, often under the table, so their employment depresses wages in general.
In between rioting, looting, burning, and physically beating people who disagree with them, Lefties keep screaming, “that’s not who we are as a nation, we are a nation of immigrants.” Yes, we are a nation of legal immigrants who assimilated into our culture, and we helped build it but we have reached our point of immigration saturation before we turn into the failed multicultural Europe that is being destroyed by the flotsam and jetsam of the welfare dependent third world.
Immigrants refuse to assimilate, we are told by the fanatical “experts” of the left, because it is “fascistic” to expect them to assimilate their “superior” and primitive culture into such an “awfully intolerant” country that took them in and supported them financially without any questions asked.
If liberals were not so “open-minded” that their brains fell out long time ago, they could perhaps answer the logical question, if we are such a racist, bigoted and intolerant place to live, why come here in the first place, why not stay in the country that is so much better than ours?
Spare us the indignity of having to support you and your extended families while you threaten us with lawsuits because we don’t accept Sharia Law over our Constitution. We are rolling out the red carpet for refugees while many of our veterans are sleeping in the streets. Is this our new America?

This is a letter from a lady who was born in Aleppo, Syria. She plans to write her memoirs soon. She wishes to remain anonymous for now.
"I was born in Aleppo and was there in 2010. The economy was better than it was here (after 2 years of Obama), people were happy, the place was hopping with tourists, couldn’t get into the shops in the souks as they were packed. When I went to restaurants the owners would come and sit with me to say that President and Asma Assad had dined at that table (pointing to a nearby table) 2 weeks ago/last month/ a few days ago. The story was always the same, they walked in without secret service, sat in the main dining room, refusing a private room, they got up and talked to other diners. Tourists were thrilled because Asma came up to them while they were visiting some of the ruins and welcomed them to her country. Contrary to what Obama and the main stream media tell us, he was popularly elected and he is a popular president.
He never did gas his people, nor did he bomb his people nor did he destroy irreplaceable historic sites. ISIS burned the Aleppo Souks and said Assad did it and that’s what the media reported. They burned and destroyed libraries full of original manuscripts dating back over millennia and blamed Assad for it. ISIS gassed children and blamed Assad for it. Even though the UN found no evidence of Assad’s involvement, the media continues to misreport that story. These were all lies and even though they have been debunked, the media keeps repeating it. Americans keep believing it.
Assad would not allow the U.S. and Qatar to build a pipeline through his country. He would not roll over for them and stood strong FOR his country. He put Syria first, just like Trump is putting America first. With the whole world against him, he stood firm and refused to abandon his constituents. The only people who assisted him were Iran and Russia and of course that was cause for the U.S. to have a fit of the vapors and further demonize him.
By the way, Obama and Hillary funded the “moderate rebels” (a.k.a. ISIS and other terrorists groups, mostly illegal aliens and NOT Syrians) with the intention of realizing their goal of regime change. Think about it, if the Syrians wanted Assad gone, he would have been gone a long time ago. Syrians have a long history of staging successful coups.
If you want to understand the war in Syria, I highly recommend you watch this video. We have to tell the truth. We deserve it."
I wrote to this friend. I was not surprised by what I read. I have been suspicious for a very long time on the treatment of Assad. No Sharia there because both Assad and his wife are well educated.
I received this response:
"Assad has protected minorities and continues to do so. My brother died last January. He was my last relative in Syria. He refused to leave. I used to talk to him and get stories of what was going on. My connections now are through my sister who remains in touch with people there. There are so many stories that the MSM would never tell you. Here is one of them. There are a lot of Christian churches and cathedrals of all denominations in Aleppo. One of the cathedrals is within walking distance of the hotel. At the beginning of the war, the terrorists started vandalizing churches. At Christmas (2011/12) Assad sent his army to Aleppo, to clear the thugs out of the cathedral and they stood guard outside so the Christians could attend Mass on Christmas Eve without fear of being attacked or shelled. Wolf Blitzer called Assad a butcher. There are so many similar stories."

There is a certain beauty and peacefulness coming from a freshly-fallen blanket of snow. Nature is quiet, the silence is almost deafening. All senses are alive. The air is fresh and crisp. Three Canada geese just flew over, not sure where they can hide from this cold. My eyes are squinting to deflect the snowy-white glare. The sun is hiding behind a thick blanket of grey, but there is an iridescence of yellow escaping here and there through the clouds.
Tree branches are covered in powdery snow, giants reaching their arms to the sky. Deer tracks are leading around the house - their nightly incursions into my flower garden. There are some azaleas left with green leaves; judging by the tracks left in the snow, the deer were brazen enough to come close to my front windows, looking for something to munch on.
The bird bath is frozen with a thick coat of ice. A red cardinal, like a fresh splotch of blood, rests on the metal ledge, painting the pristine whiteness. One solitaire evergreen tree breaks the whiteness. I step onto the snow and am surprised that there is a crunching layer of ice underneath. I want to walk to the forest to take a few pictures. There is so much amazing beauty surrounding me in the dormant landscape! God’s palette is rich with hues of white, brown, dark green, grey, yellow, and blue.
I walk through the semi-frozen ground with care. I am not sure what hides beneath my feet. I leave behind icy tracks. It will be easy to follow my way back. The water’s edge is frozen and cracked underneath in a spidery pattern of blue and white. The water current seems to be running swiftly through the middle. It has not been hard cold enough during the night to freeze everything. But there is no sign of wildlife floating or feeding anywhere near the shore. Where did they seek shelter?

President Trump proposed a 20 percent tariff on imports from Mexico in order to pay for the wall he plans to build on the southern border. It is assumed that the 20 percent tariff is a negotiating starting point. A tariff is a tax on imports which will make a product more expensive and favor domestically produced goods over imports, while raising revenue for the government of our country.
Tariffs were a major government revenue source during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries but today we are a low tariff country, with a few exceptions. Other countries protect their domestic industries by charging heavy tariffs and some as much as 100 percent.
A tariff helps those companies and countries that can supply goods most cheaply, presumably because they are more efficient, but some governments provide their companies with export subsidies in order to allow them to reduce the selling price of their goods on foreign markets.
Dan Lombard argued that “a 3% transit tax over three years would pay for a wall.” Infuriated by the economically illiterate commentators who claim that the tariff would be passed on entirely to the consumer, Lombard said that a $700 washing machine crosses the border with a price tag of $400, but time transit charges, warehousing expenses, sales commissions, overhead markup, and profit are added onto the $400 price, pricing the washer at $700 but the tariff is applied onto the $400 price tag. Customers will pay a certain amount more for that brand produced in Mexico but the company that makes the washing machine “will absorb the cost as the price of doing business.”
What exactly does Mexico export to us? http://www.cbsnews.com/news/what-does-the-u-s-import-from-mexico-a-whole-lot/
According to government trade data, Mexico exported $295 billion worth of goods to the U.S. in 2015: autos (74 billion), electrical machinery (63 billion), machinery (49 billion), agricultural products (21 billion), fuels (14 billion), plastics (17 billion), optical and medical instruments (12 billion). In the agricultural products category Mexico exported to the U.S. corn, soybeans, dairy products, pork and pork products, beef and beef products. https://ustr.gov/countries-regions/americas/mexico
On January 27, 2017, President Trump tweeted that “Mexico has taken advantage of the U.S. for long enough. Massive trade deficits and little help on the very weak border must change, NOW!”
A trade deficit with Mexico is the excess of our imports over exports. U.S. goods trade deficit with Mexico was $58 billion in 2015 and U.S. services trade surplus with Mexico in 2015 was $9.2 billion. Mexico was the third largest supplier of goods to the U.S. in 2014 and supplied services in transportation, travel, and intellectual property (software). https://ustr.gov/countries-regions/americas/mexico
U.S. foreign investment in Mexico totaled $107.8 billion in 2014 by nonbank holding companies, manufacturing, and finance/insurance.
Texas Congressman Louis Gohmert told Fox News that billions of dollars had been appropriated for a virtual wall on the southern border during the Bush administration but Janet Napolitano disregarded Congress and “we let her get away with disobeying the law.” http://investmentwatchblog.com/funds-already-appropriated-for-wall-its-going-to-happen/
According to the Daily Caller, “The transition team is planning big spending negotiations with Congress, which will include money for the wall.” President Trump “plans to make Mexico pay for the wall directly or indirectly by increasing fees on visas and border crossing cards, enforcing trade tariffs and taxing money transfers abroad.” The pre-cast concrete wall will be 35-50 feet tall, costing an estimated $8-$12 billion. Of the 2,000 mile border with Mexico, 650 miles are already fenced and illegals have no problem climbing the existing barrier. http://dailycaller.com/2016/11/10/trumps-plan-for-the-wall-on-the-mexican-border-materializes/
It is obvious to any traveler that Mexico must repair their own country and must stop using the United States as their social security blanket at the expense of American taxpayers. Drug cartels operate across the border back and forth unimpeded, and illegals send home billions of dollars of untaxed money to Mexico.
As many have suggested, a tax should be levied on money wired to Mexico via Western Union, Money Gram, etc. On the average, money wires are only charged a service fee of $10.99 to transfer a few hundred dollars.
Most illegals, who do work hard and long hours, request to be paid in cash which means that they evade paying state and federal income taxes, Social Security taxes, etc. At the same time, they benefit from our free medical care and other forms of welfare. As they consume goods and services in this country, they do pay sales taxes.
Some Illegals pay tax via ITIN (Individual Taxpayer Identification Number) also known as W7. The earned income tax credit they receive based on reported income on W7 is far greater than the actual state and federal taxes they pay. Some even claim children who are not even theirs or do not reside in the United States. Tax refunds amount to $4.2 billion according to a 2011 audit by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration. http://www.forbes.com/sites/robertwood/2015/08/20/trump-bashes-4-billion-in-irs-refunds-to-illegals/#4945c4de7025
Let’s assume that the 11 million illegal aliens that apparently have not grown in numbers in 20 years since the MSM has championed their cause, send home south of the border $1,000 per month, a sum total of one billion untaxed income earned while illegally in the U.S., a cool $12 billion a year. Some may send less, some may send more. To save money, several illegals rent one apartment and use one common van as transportation. The money sent to Mexico support their families left behind for years and helps them save for building a nice home.
Michael Savage made the argument on his radio show that you cannot and should not deport law-abiding illegals (although when they cross the border of another country illegally, technically they are not law-abiding), that only criminal illegal aliens should be deported. Quoting data from the Government Accountability Office, 25 percent of the prison population is made up of illegal aliens and “criminal illegal aliens are arrested on the average 7 times.” https://www.numbersusa.org/pages/incarcerated-illegal-aliens-0
One of the reasons Savage cited for not deporting “law-abiding” illegals was that many work diligently and very hard in construction and in restaurants. “Who is going to wash the dishes,” he asked rhetorically. “And who is going to pick the crops? You?” This argument is weak as humans no longer need to pick crops, there are machines that can pick any kind of crop – back-breaking manual labor is no longer necessary. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H6VKBb9MmJc
The assumption is also made that millions of low-skilled Americans who are unemployed are either too educated for the job, lazy, or are unwilling to work in the restaurant business or construction industry.
But, for every illegal alien who is gainfully employed, if they are not here alone, he has a wife and children at home who are dependent on Medicaid and some or all of the thirteen U.S. Welfare Programs, costing American taxpayers plenty. And anchor babies make their parents eligible to stay in the U.S. and eventually the extended family.
The welfare programs include: http://federalsafetynet.com/us-welfare-programs.html
- Negative income Tax (Earned Income Tax Credit or EITC, and the Child Tax Credit)
- SNAP (food program, formerly food stamps, but is now a debit card which is often abused)
- Housing assistance
- SSI (cash to low-income individuals)
- Pell Grants (up to $5,500 in grants to students from low-income households)
- TANF (cash for individuals moving from welfare to work)
- Child nutrition
- Head Start (pre-school program to low-income families)
- Job training programs
- WIC (healthy food to pregnant women and children up to five years of age)
- Child care (block grants to states and private agencies who administer child care programs to low-income families)
- LIHEAP (Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program for heating and cooling)
- Lifeline (Obama Phone) – discounted phone service to low-income individuals.
Savage argued that Americans must tread lightly in withdrawing these benefits to Mexicans as it would destabilize their economy and would create a vacuum of financial support of the population, leaving it open perhaps to a country like China to become the Big Brother provider which might not be in the best interest of the United States.
Even though Democrats and their leftist cohorts are lobbying against the southern border wall, and shrieking that it cannot be built, that it is inhumane, that it is being escalated anyway, that it would take a long time to build, and states like Texas, California, and New Mexico are rightfully Mexico’s anyway, they build tall security armed fences around their mansions and properties. The wall worked for China and it works for Israel. A former Mexican president even went as far as saying that Mexico is wherever there are Mexicans. However, if anyone crosses their borders illegally, they go straight to jail.
