Skip to comments.Horowitz: Are We Strangers in Our Own Land?
Posted on 07/03/2014 7:13:24 AM PDT by sheikdetailfeather
As we near the 238th anniversary of U.S. independence, many Americans are wondering if we are indeed an independent nation with sovereign borders, given that tens of thousands of unaccompanied children are streaming across the southern border. Have we become strangers in our own land?
On Tuesday, two very disturbing stories concerning our border crisis surfaced in the news. These stories should put goose bumps on all Americans.
Fox News Todd Starnes broke the news Tuesday that a private security force contracted by the government had threatened doctors working at a refugee camp to keep them from disclosing information about the rampant illness among the illegal immigrants. Starnes reported:

We are on our way to becoming the Stateless Americans, those who remain in the land and those who choose to wander the earth in a modern diaspora. I’m not ready to give up this land yet, but the time for fight or flight is coming soon.
A straight jacket for one particular lunatic would suffice as well.
It has progressed far beyond the straight jacket as I’m sure you would agree.
Anyone that would do what is being done to The Constitution, children, the border, the rule of law, and to citizens of the USA regardless of why is deserving of the charge of TREASON.

Yes we have. I took a flight from Miami to Phoenix Tuesday night. I was nearly the only English speaker within 10 rows of me.
.....Is this what our Founders envisioned when they declared independence from a king in 1776?....
NO more Third-World immigrants!!!! VIGOROUSLY enforce all immigration laws, use profiling, and capture and send back ALL illegals! Pass new national quotas for immigration, that will keep ALL Third-Worlders out, except for VERY specific cases (e.g., Meriam Ibrahim)!!!!
The normal people are no longer wanted. (But their money is)

This is nothing new to southern California which long ago was tossed under the immigration bus by political opportunists in both parties. Mass immigration from the third world, legal as well as illegal.
My daughter & I stopped at the Costco in Tucson near I-10. As we were eating, we realized we were the ONLY ones speaking English. When we finished, we walked between the tables, and didn’t hear a word in English from anyone.
My wife is a LEGAL immigrant, as are my two oldest kids (adopted), but all three have long since become “Americans” - in language, and largely in culture too. Certainly politically, with both older kids doing tours in Iraq & Afghanistan.
Just 15 years ago, when I was out at a local grocery store or department store, it was such a rarity to actually hear someone within earshot speaking a foreign language, that it automatically stood out. Now, same places, over HALF the voices I overhear are speaking a foreign tongue. And accompanying it visually, a depressed, third-world aura to the surroundings.
I don’t recognize America anymore. Add a Marxist president and a corrupt banana-republic government, along with a totally depraved and faggotized culture. As it now stands, this is no longer a country I feel much if any connection to anymore.
And, Mexicans belong in Mexico.
That's exactly what we should do, but how do we make it happen? Our "leaders" simply refuse to do it. Do we storm the White House? I know the majority of Americans feel like we do, yet this continues and just gets worse and worse.
The legal immigrants should speak up in mass and make their voices heard in no uncertain terms.
To end the alien flood from the Third World we just need to elect another Bush GOPe Republican.
What’s that? No, wait....
I’m in Southern California, and it’s to the point where if I hear someone speaking English with an American accent, I sit up and notice because it’s a rarity. I do still occasionally hear English, but almost always accented. Even the radio ads use announcers with Mexican accents.
This is just a good practice for putting us in those “refugee” camps. They will just change the name to “Resettlement camp”. They are using Crisp or Blackwater or Trident to police these camps because they can’t use the military but why is nobody questioning this? This is BS folks.
Notice the congressmen whining about it but doing nada.

I’m in SoCal too and I know exactly what you mean.
I’ve been here long enough to remember when SoCal was inhabited by Americans.
The most beautiful state of the "57," as Obama might say...and the best weather. Paradise, it used to be. And we gave it away to anybody who could crawl, slither, swim, or overstay a visa to get here. Most Californians just said, "Oh, you want our paradise? I see you're ruining it. Well, we'll just leave and let you have it. Carry on!" Though they did vote for Prop. 187 first, which did indeed turn out to be the "last gasp."
