IMMIGRATION�S THIRD WORLD MOMENTUM
Writing about America�s immigration crisis week after week raises my blood pressure, level of depression and creates maddening frustration levels as I observe inaction by the majority of American citizens. All fifty state governors do nothing to stop it, won�t speak against it, and, in many cases encourage it. Governor Bill Owens of Colorado, Baldacci of Maine, Janet Napolitano of Arizona and Richardson from New Mexico assist it. Although, this summer, Napolitano and Richardson issued �states of emergency� in their states as illegals overran them.
The majority of senators do nothing as well as the majority of the House of Representatives. Major and smaller city majors and city councils harbor illegal aliens with sanctuary policies. Even Los Angeles, with more gangs and crime than you can imagine, continues Special Order 40 that allows killers, rapists, drug distributors, MS-13 members and other human grease to remain protected from arrest.
Have you ever wondered why Third World countries are SO desperate? Why people flee? Why most citizens are illiterate? Why corruption is standard operating procedure? Let�s compare the �Rule of Law� in America to the �Dis-rule of Law� in countries like Mexico.
In my book, �IMMIGRATION�S UNARMED INVASION: DEADLY CONSEQUENCES��I wrote about Third World Momentum as seen from the seat of my bicycle as I traveled throughout the world on six continents. I saw first hand all aspects of Third World Momentum. That�s why it is SO frustrating that US citizens don�t �get it� or �see it� and our president and Congress ignore it on purpose as they become a part of the �Dis-rule of Law� in America. But I�m here to tell you that we�re flushing ourselves down the toilet faster than a bullet train. What is happening in America is a �systemic� or �endemic� corrupt system from Bush right on down the federal system.
An example of it shows you the incompetence of Michael Brown at FEMA and his horrifically incompetent handling of Katrina. At the height of Rome's decay, emperors appointed unqualified candidates to high office. Caligula appointed his horse to the Senate, where the horse enjoyed the reputation as the wisest and least harmful of that �august� body.
Last week, a reader wrote the exact aspects of Third World Momentum. After his interview, you will be offered a half dozen stories from U.S. citizens that bring it home as to how fast this country is spiraling into Third World status.
Heath Boatwright, Athens, Georgia understands what I have been trying to convey to the American public for years.
�In the last few years, I have found myself in a world where many refuse to discuss openly and honestly the issues that the United States is facing,� Boatwright said. �Hearing you on Coast to Coast with George Noory was refreshing to say the least. Although, I will tell you that it did not make me sleep better, and in fact I had to wake up and ponder for a moment all that you had said.�
�When you discuss Third World Momentum I know first-hand what you are talking about,� Boatwright said. �However, sadly, few Americans can grasp what you are talking about. I attended college at The University of Georgia. I received a BA in history, with a focus on Latin American history and I speak fluent Portuguese. I have traveled to South America many times and visited some of the most destitute and impoverished people there. Unfortunately, when I discuss this issue with most people, they call me a xenophobe, a racist, a bigot, and an ignorant person who does not appreciate other cultures.�
�Yet, how can I fit this description if I have ventured out into the world, bothered to learn another language, and reached out an open hand to the poor in far away places?� he said. �Also, how can I be a racist if the very person I chose to marry is not even an American (my wife is from Brazil)? While my love for the people and the region of Latin America runs deep, I would not trade my fate for theirs. I would also not trade my fate for nearly anyone in the Middle East, China, India, and so on.�
�Why is it that in the United States, to appreciate a culture you must also want to live like it?� Boatwright said. �I have dedicated much study to that region of the world, and I can tell you flat out that there is another mentality that exists in most Third World nations, and that mentality is manifesting itself here in the United States, daily. Many say that Latin America is "laid back". I have pondered on this observation and realized that you could also put it another way. In Latin America, if it is good enough for today, it is good enough. In Latin America, if you want to get something done, you will have to circumvent law. This is the type of Third World Corruption that you speak of.�
�So many in Latin America circumvent the law, that they rarely bother to realize that here, in the US, circumventing the law is the worst way to get things done,� he said. �Corruption is so rampant in those regions that it becomes a mechanism by which the society functions. This is why so many illegals come here--reproduce fake Social Security numbers, register their cars from one state to another to avoid mandatory auto insurance, go to the hospital using a fake name, buy items on credit using their brother's name is who now back in Mexico, refuse to learn English, and bear several children with no means of supporting them. They do this because they are modeling what they do in their culture.�
Boatwright continues, �Here is another fact about Latin America, and I believe most other Third World nations: those who reside there rarely bother to take accountability for their country�s problems. In Latin America, problems are blamed on corruption, foul government, and in certain intellectual circles-�past colonialism�. I have yet to encounter one single illegal person in the United States who is willing to admit that he is contributing to the detriment of my nation. In Latin America, you live side by side with abject poverty, illiteracy, hunger, and disease. You do this daily and it simply becomes part of the landscape. Latin America, and again most Third World countries, has a problem of what I call �mobilization.��
�This is a situation where thousands mobilize and figure out methods to get things done, either by circumventing the law, or based on the current corrupt system they face, but few ever mobilize to truly resolve the issues they face,� Boatwright said. �I do not find it ironic at all that once one illegal alien discovered that he could come here to the US, work illegally, get healthcare, and generally avoid any type of legal prosecution, he later found himself surrounded by millions of his fellow countrymen. Again, this is my point: in Latin America, you have no problem getting people to mobilize in a way that ignores the current law, because people in that region do not live in fear of the law, it generally does not function anyway, and now they have seen that it also does not function in the United States.�
�Perhaps I sound harsh in my description, but I know exactly what I am talking about,� Boatwright said. �I know that region of the world well, I also know so well the manner of thinking that many bring with them when they enter the United States illegally. This manner of thinking, I believe, is the greatest threat that we face in the future. Finally, I have a deep interest in appreciating and understanding other cultures, but I also have an appreciation for my own. I want to let you know that I understand fully what you are talking about. I would like to ask you if you have ever considered going to our nation�s college campuses and discussing this issue. I mention college campuses because I do not know if you are aware that on the American campus it is virtually a universal opinion that illegal immigration is okay. Geography is a required course in most curriculums, and most people grasp the concept of overpopulation, but few can connect that to illegal immigration.�
If I could give you Heath Boatwright�s or my experiences up close and ugly, every single American today would call the White House, Senators and Congressmen as well as governors and mayors�and DEMAND our immigration laws be enforced and deportations begin immediately for 20 million illegal aliens. But if you don�t or won�t, part II of this series will show you Americans living with the consequences that reach into every sector of our country. This �thing� is moving faster than most Americans realize, and once it�s imbedded, I fear that large scale civil violence will be the result.
If the signers of the 1965 Immigration Reform Act could see today what they rained down on America 40 years later, not one single senator or congressman would have signed it. But why won�t they rescind it? Why won�t they stop it? It�s their country and their children�s future, too.
