The Crucifixion of Steve King

Congressman Steve King recently created an uproar when he tweeted, “We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies.” He later explained, “You’ve got to keep your birth rate up, and that you need to teach your children your values. In doing so, you can grow your population, you can strengthen your culture, and you can strengthen your way of life.”

Sure sounds reasonable to me. But, as we’ve come to expect of him, finger-in-the-wind Paul Ryan quickly chimed in through his spokeswoman that he “clearly disagrees” with King’s comments and that “he believes America’s long history of inclusiveness is one of its great strengths.”

Later, in an interview with Fox News’ Bret Baier, Ryan added, “I’d like to think that he misspoke and it wasn’t really meant the way that that sounds, and hopefully he’s clarified that.” But when asked by CNN’s Chris Cuomo on “New Day” to clarify his comments, King emphasized, “I meant exactly what I said.”

Given that he’s proven time and time again that his main objective is to be adored by the criminal left, I dismiss Ryan’s comments out of hand. However, I do find it amazing that so many well-intentioned people completely misconstrued Congressman King’s point as well.

First of all, what King said had nothing to do with race. I don’t know why lefties (and, for that matter, many on the right) can’t let go of the pigmentation thing. As a pretty credible man once said, the real issue is the content of a person’s character, not the color of his skin.

Honestly, now, who would you rather have living in your neighborhood — Nancy Pelosi, Debbie W-S, Chuck Schumer, Harry Reid, Horrible Hillary, Anthony Weiner, Rahm Emanuel, Pocahontas, and Al Franken … or Ben Carson, Sheriff David Clarke, Allen West, Niger Innes, Larry Elder, Condoleezza Rice, Thomas Sowell, and Clarence Thomas?

Not a real difficult choice for most people to make, though a Radical Lefty like Chris Matthews would probably opt for all white folks. After all, that’s what he’s done throughout his personal life, preferring to live in lily white Chevy Chase, Maryland, where blacks comprise a whopping 1 percent of the population. The party of slavery, Jim Crow, and the Ku Klux Klan has a simple motto: “We love blacks — provided they don’t wander too far off the welfare plantation.

Sorry, Dirty Dems, but for those who truly believe in freedom, color has never been an issue. Ditto with religion. I have about as much interest in a person’s religion as I do in the color socks he wears. You can be Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, or an atheist, yet still be a cultural American.

And that’s why Steve King, a truly great American and one of a handful of honorable people in Washington, made it clear that he was talking about culture when he made his comments. Think about it: How can you expect American culture to survive if you flood the country with people who don’t respect its traditions, don’t speak its language, and don’t have any interest or intention of abiding by its generally accepted code of conduct?

The key word in all this is assimilation. America is a melting pot, not a patch quilt of tribes. The goal of progressives — and Barack Obama in particular — has been to create hatred and division in America by pitting cultures against one another.

And that, in turn, creates weakness, not strength. As I’ve been saying for years, one of the biggest lies ever told is that America’s strength derives from its cultural diversity. Nothing could be further from the truth. Cultural diversity is, in fact, America’s greatest weakness.

When the U.S. sent troops across the pond to kick Hitler’s butt in World War II, there were no doubts about the cultural traditions, beliefs, and loyalties of the young soldiers it sent off to war. It’s especially noteworthy that the heroic Tuskogee Airmen — who, of course, were all black — were patriotic to the core. That’s because they were men whose families had long before assimilated into American culture. Which is why their segregated status is still such a moral blemish on American history. But, then, why wouldn’t you expect a segregated military from an autocratic Democrat like FDR?

In the meantime, the Dirty Dems have been plotting to destroy American culture for decades. They’ve had a master plan in place since at least 1965, when Ted Kennedy, of Chappaquiddick fame, sponsored the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, assuring Americans that it “will not flood our cities with immigrants. It will not upset the ethnic mix of our society. It will not relax the standards of admission.” It was a classic example of The Big Lie, and it quickly accelerated to the point where illegal immigrants streamed across America’s southern border at will.

Then came the radical Islamists from the Middle East and various other peoples who had no intention of adopting American culture. On the contrary, most have stayed true to their native cultures and many have openly stated that their goal is to impose their values and beliefs on Americans.

Which brings me to the Trump Wall. Symbolically, it’s a good thing, but the truth is that it’s totally unnecessary and a complete waste of money. Illegal immigration could be stopped quickly and completely simply by:

  1. Enforcing the law and stop pretending that the Constitution guarantees automatic citizenship to so-called anchor babies. It absolutely, positively, does not.
  2. Making it illegal to provide social services of any kind — food stamps, medical care (including emergency-room facilities), unemployment benefits, and disability payments, to name but a few — to anyone who isn’t a United States citizen or legal permanent resident.
  3. Making it a felony, with mandatory prison time, for an employer to hire any undocumented person. Zero tolerance.

Just these three items alone would put a quick and voluntary end to illegal immigration, though many more rules and laws should probably be added.

Actually, given the fact that the United States is in a state of chaos and $20 trillion in debt (not counting perhaps as much as $200 trillion in unfunded entitlement obligations), I believe the president should halt all immigration — regardless of country of origin — for at least five years, with the exception of highly skilled professionals such as engineers, doctors, and hi-tech experts.

Australia and New Zealand go much further, allowing someone entry only if he can convince authorities he possesses a skill that is not already available in their countries or if there is a shortage of such a skill. Citizenship or permanent residency is right they grant only to those who can convince them that they will be an asset to their countries.

With the above in mind, as the Dirty Dems and their useful idiots on the other side of the aisle continue their push to rip American culture to shreds, the question that not enough people are asking is: Where is it written that it is a legal (or moral) requirement to allow anyone who wants to live in America to do so?

Further, who has the moral authority to judge that letting anyone — let alone everyone — into the United States is a noble thing to do when millions of existing Americans are suffering as a result of crime, inadequate healthcare, a shortage of good-paying jobs, and a staggering debt that the government has piled onto their shoulders without their permission?

It’s too bad that so few Americans are not strong enough, logical enough, or well-grounded enough to not react in a kneejerk fashion every time the Radical Left goes into hysterics because someone dared to put forth a rational, well-intentioned thought.

The words of Simon and Garfunkel mean much more to me now than they did in the sixties: “Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio, our nation turns its lonely eyes to you.” What a great time in human history it was. If you don’t get it, I can’t explain.

    Your three step plan to replace the wall is far more practical than a 15 billion dollar wall. Whenever governments build a mousetrap, the clever mice will figure out a way to defeat it.

    • NotPropagandized says:

      Agreed, but something tells me the Wall is more than control of illegal immigration. The enemies of America view the southern border as one of America's Achilles Heels. If it does not mean much for illegal immigration control, it may become a useful barrier as our enemies gather and intensify their hatred and intent to harm.

  2. larajf says:

    I hope we do get back to a nation that follows the rule of law and start enforcing the laws on the books about immigration. And I think we don't need to extend it to high skills…there are quite a few highly skilled people who are under or unemployed. What I'd love is to see multiple tech centers around the nation so people aren't stuck in Silicon Valley. And hopefully we'll fix the white guilt mentality somehow when people aren't in such a hive.

    • Ellis Baxter says:

      Vote out, and then out law the Satanic Pagan Cult of the RED FASCIST democrat party. Their sacrament is abortion. That is the only path to save the Republic. You can not have a anti Republic – anti American party in either house of congress. These people [democrats] take the oath of office and then attempt to subvert that oath at every opportunity. They have no belief in the constitution. Or individual rights, or nature's law and nature's God. It is that simple.

  3. Denver Mullins says:

    A fine article.

  4. Hungarian says:

    Export Capitalism to Mexico and other countries, so people can stay and prosper in their own homeland . Capitalism is the magic system that produces freedom for the individual ( including women ) and takes power away from the government .

    • Jim Hallett says:

      Actually, there already are a lot of entrepreneurs and other capitalists in Mexico – just not clustered in the border towns or ghettos of other large cities. Many astute Americans have fled the USA TO Mexico for its lower taxation, better climate, and the chance to prosper. There are places like San Miguel de Allende, e.g., that are highly desirable and much less expensive than U.S. cities. They Yucatan has a lot of great opportunities as well.

    • Marco says:

      Hungarian, I agree with your demand to keep out of USA to Mexicans and citizens from other countries, but your premise (about why Mexicans migrate to US) is not correct: Mexican culture is one of strong individualism, not collectivism.

      That's why street merchants and informal economy in general abound in Mexico: They do not expect state to take care of them, and most of them have an entrepreneurial spirit, both of them roots of a capitalist system.

      The poorest among them migrate to USA because Mexico keeps almost null the minimum wage, so neither the state policies are socialists, as a difference from USA where their minimum wage (a socialist principle) is high based in The Big Mac Index*

      "Export Capitalism to…" tell that to most of South American countries like Argentina, where they have a socialist mindset but still thousands of them migrate to Mexico (yes, Mexico) for better jobs opportunities.
      Or say it to European countries like Greece, Italy, Portugal, Spain… all of them real Capitalism haters, long-vacation lovers but living in struggling economies, and some of them migrating to England or Germany.

    Even Muslims can assimilate? I doubt it. And who are the breeders in America? I too have been afraid that low-life will outbreed higher folk and ruin America. When I was growing up, almost a hundred years ago in the Detroit area (pre crap days) second generation Hungarian, I witnessed my aunts and uncles, and then cousins, become 100% Americans, and the same for all other white Europeans, the Polish et al.NOT the same as Middle Easterners, Asians and Orientals, Africans, et al. People don't want to admit the difference between those immigrants, and the ones later. Call me "Prejudiced" but I prefer the more homogeneous America that was Pre-WWII.

    • Scott theczech says:

      I lived and worked in the Middle East for years, among Muslims, Coptic Christians, Greek Orthodox, Evangelical Christians (yep, them too) and Jews. I can tell you from my formal education and experience that there is a clear difference in world views and actions deriving therefrom. There are some people whos ability to think and reason has been so warped, it is nigh on to impossible for them to be assimilated into the Judeo-Christian ethic vis a vis Western Culture. We must be very careful indeed who we admit to this country and her beloved system.

  6. cabbagehead says:

    We white people have our own culture and ways different than other races and cultures. I have noticed that immigrants largely balkanize as they came here with their own cultures. I married an immigrant who after many years here never fully assimilated and longs for his own country, never becoming a citizen. While I admire the oriental culture I cannot eat raw fish and lack their discipline. I prefer the American bad diet and living next to people who look like me. Living close to Mexico I admire the working people who have immigrated here and wonder why the rich families there get no blame for repressing everyone else and not allowing Mexico to flourish. The one percent truly asset rich in every country should do more to help their own races. So many. I like "Hungarians" comment and agree.

    • Jean says:

      The balkanization of which you speak has only occurred during the past five decades or so, as the Democrats created a system of "identity politics" that allowed each segregated unit to feel it was entitled to government (taxpayer funded) largesse. My grandparents immigrated from Belarus and the Ukraine; both were proud when they learned to speak, read and write in English, and although my grandmother was fluent in Russian, Polish and Yiddish, she demanded that my mother learn perfect English writing and speaking skills. To them, America was the shining city on the hill, and all things American were to be embraced. They happily left czarist Russia behind, and were thankful 'til the day they died that they never lived under Communism or had to fend off the Nazi invasion of eastern Europe during WW II.

  7. David Macko says:

    Congressman King's statement has been proven by six thousand years of history and by every civilization which was wiped out. It needs to become the greatest rallying cry of this century for all Americans.

  8. Reality Seeker says:

    History has proven over and over and over again that flooding one culture with another always ends badly. Take, for example, my step grandfather. As a full blooded Native American who was born in 1896 (RIP) he and his people would laugh at anybody who made the asinine statement that immigration was good for the native people.

    Tens of millions of low skilled people with an average IQ of 86 have flooded our hospitals, schools, welfare system, roadways and drastically altered our workforce…. These people vote for more government and to take my guns away. They absolutely don't assimilate. Millions are illiterate in their own language, and they will NEVER speak English. The worst of them adhere to Sharia law which is totally incompatible with the US Constitution….

    Immigration of this sort is going to destroy the US economy and totally ruin the quality of life — in some locations it already has ruined and replaced the American culture that usurped the Native American culture….

    History repeats….

    Buy gold. Buy silver. Buy gun powder. And have faith……

    ….. And if you're white and love your great culture, then think seriously about relocating away from the areas where the flood of welefare hungry illegals continues unabated. There is a growing movement where white people are seeking out areas where they can live something like the whites did in the 50s….. Places like Utah, Wyoming, Idaho and Montana…. The cold weather acts as a deterrent to many of the darker skinned races…

    • texas wolfie says:

      They swarm here from their breeding ground in other distant lands, then build replica villages of the crap hole they just left from, then continue with the crazy behavior and corruptions that ruined the places where they lived!!

    • Jim Hallett says:

      Prior to 1970, the U.S. averaged no more than 250,000 LEGAL immigrants per year, a manageable number and most of them assimilated pretty well. Since Teddy's HORRID Immigration Bill in 1965, the floodgates were opened, welfare entitlement payments insured, and the vast majority of new immigrants are NOT assimilating into American culture, not to mention, we are taking in over 1 MILLION legal (and who knows how many illegal) immigrants per year. It is not sustainable or remotely desirable. It creates votes for the Libtard Dems, but other than that, not much else. Becoming an American citizen is a privilege – NOT a right – and should not encumber any other American in order to facilitate it. Get rid of the welfare incentives and immigration would take care of itself – no need to spend $Billions on a wall. In fact, I thought Trump's comments were more figurative – meaning a strong immigration policy – rather than a literal physical wall.

  9. Blank Reg says:

    Something you didn't add: Countries like Australia and NZ will let you in if you are a successful businessman, and have millions to invest in country, creating jobs and taxable events.

    • Robert Ringer RJR says:

      You are correct. Show them the money and you're in.

    • Phil says:

      They are still very tight though on age limits. It's a 4 year dispensation, renewal upon maintaining the minimum investment and income requirements. That's actually AU, NZ, is a bit more relaxed. We had a chance to move their not long ago, but some things concerned me. There are some definite issues with socialism and a growing Maori discontent. Hard to say. Lived in AU for a while, though, and it is gorgeous beyond what man could have conceived in many spots. Astonishingly beautiful place.

  10. Mike B says:

    I'm not certain of it, but it seems sharia law is part and parcel to being muslim. I don't believe there is any way sharia law can be assimilated into American culture.

  11. Scott theczech says:

    Thank you for articulating the distinction between race and culture!

  12. kauai_mike says:

    Being that the very people who are having babies like crazy aren't reading a word of any of this, or if they were wouldn't stop, the prospects are pretty bleak for an internal invasion to be stopped.

    On the flip-side, all those new people can pick up the slack paying taxes the missing babies of those here would have.

  13. Wayne says:

    "Where have you gone", almost brings tears to mine eyes. I am 69 blessed,90% of physical of my 30-40 years, mentally maybe a little duller but wiser. Also thankful for RR the time for reading his prose!
    Just wondering RR, have you ever considered writing about the rise of the 'Bar Association' and the fall of the USA and its middle class.

  14. hon says:

    I just read an article about Tokyo. It's the world's largest city with a population of 38 million yet has the world's lowest crime rate. There are no slums, with only 1% of the population with immigrant background. Of the 5000 requests for asylum Japan received in 2016 only 11 were approved. They don't have government welfare programs as in the U.S. Everyone contributes to the community. During the massive earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan in 2011 there was no looting or violence. Those are inconceivable to the Japanese. Law and order hold society together. If you commit a crime your family will disown you forever. Here in the U.S. criminals and thugs are celebrated especially by those on the left.

    • Robert Ringer RJR says:

      Excellent insight. I might just research that and perhaps write about it.

      • Reality Seeker says:

        Japan is a country that sells more adult diapers than baby diapers. The demographics are horrible. Japan has big problems. It's a dying nation because the breed is not reproducing. It's nearly impossible to immigrate to Japan, so something has got to give. And it will soon enough.

        Anybody who wants to understand what's actually happening in Japan should avail themselves of the Corbett Report. James Corbett lives in Japan, has a Japanese wife and a newborn child.. I've known James ever since Bob Chapman took him under his wing and groomed James to take over the International Forecaster….

        Anyway, here is a sample interview of James explaining the facts of life about Japan.
        https://youtu.be/fRWjPl_vWl4

    • Jim Hallett says:

      VERY GOOD comparison to bring up. The Japanese also respect their elderly and would never think of shuttling them off to be cared for by somebody else or be a ward of the State.

      • Phil says:

        True in other societies as well. We were just in San Miguel de Allende, and the way that families hang together in the village square (true in other regions as well, most in fact in that country) was so different than what we tend to see here. And NO KIDS GLUED TO THEIR CELL PHONES! Rather, playing soccer, having fun, etc. What happened to us???

  15. Greg says:

    Could this be an either-or fallacy? Build or not build the wall? Why not do both. If you cannot build the wall, what makes you think you do the other? If you can build the wall, then the other could follow.

    Let's not create a problem that doesn't exist. We have the will to stop illegal immigration. Use it to stop it for good.

  16. Andy Andy Wallace says:

    Robert, I'm always amazed by statements made by politicans extolling the wonders of diversity in our nation. Upon hearing these statements, I always think, where is the proof? I'd love to see quantitative proof showing precisely how diversity has improved life in the US. As noted in earlier comments, it seems to me that assimilation, not diversity, has historically been our greatest strength.

    • Robert Ringer RJR says:

      Your questions and comments sound like Tucker Carlson. "Where is the proof?" is his mantra. More people should follow his lead.

    • John Van Epps says:

      Oh, I don't know – I've enjoyed diversity over my sixty years. Being asked to dinner by friends parents, and eating PA Dutch/German 'hog maw' and 'shoo-fly pie'. Cincinnati chili (a Greek concoction). Carne Asada from my Mexican friends. Latkes. Of course the truth is, all these folks were definitely assimilated (one of my friends from MX drives a Mustang and rides a Harley). But exposure to different cultures is part of America, and provided the assimilation, I think it's been grand…

      • Robert Ringer RJR says:

        I know what you're talking about, and it's a fine line. My wife is from Central America, but she is a cultural American through and through. And her English is better than me – not a trace of an accent. She WANTED to be an American first.

  17. RKR says:

    America 2017: Political correctness, sadly, trumps the truth. Frankly, I'm not a fan of President Trump's language, former lifestyle, or his tweets. However, if I am going to be in a street fight I want someone with courage, backbone, and tenacity (unlike most politicians). The only answer I see on the national level is Donald Trump. I may not agree with him on everything but I want in my corner.

  18. Kevan Rowlee says:

    Another good article by RR ……………….. sharing to Facebook

  19. Tom Yeoman says:

    Robert Ringer strides to the defense of a controversial comment. Read it before you judge.

  20. Lana says:

    Excellent article. Americans should heed the words of Steven King. If you care about the values of the United States, it's customs and integrity, you have to protect them. We are the United States of America…not individual pockets of different nationalities. This has to stop so that we aren't lost……Please….it's our country.

  21. TN Ray says:

    Great article. I love the 3 point plan that would end illegal immigration without the need for a wall. Common sense is a beautiful thing.
    To bad it is in short supply in politics. Speaking of politics and crucifixion: I was thinking today of the questioning of Judge Gorsuch by the hypocritical Democrats. Much like the Pharisees of Jesus day, they tried mightily to trick him into a slip of the tongue. Something they could twist into an indictment against him. Something they could use to "Bork" him. No doubt these hypocritical DirtyDems are of the same mindset as those who ultimately crucified Christ. Character assassination is what the liberal media and the DirtyDems are all about. Sad. The likes of Parick Leahy are the best case for term limits. As was Ted Kennedy and many others.
    The US Senate is a farce to be reckoned with.

  22. Daniel says:

    “…he believes America’s long history of inclusiveness is one of its great strengths.” No shit? Was anyone else struck with how inane that comment was? Whereas I doubt anyone will read this far down in the comment thread, may I ask, aren’t you fed up with this kind of nonsense? Kudos to Mr. King in standing by his comment: “I meant exactly what I said.” I could elaborate; but, instead, I have resolved to not be intimidated by thought police; to speak my mind; to support and defend those who speak theirs and who believe in the sanctity of liberty and individuality.

    • Robert Ringer RJR says:

      I thought the exact same thing about Ryan's comment. I don't even know what he means by "America's long history of inclusiveness." You're being generous to call it "inane."

  23. Harry says:

    Very good article, mostly. I do cavil though, at this never-ending diatribe against segregation, and even slavery. It's anachronistic judging. Slavery was legal throughout world history, until WHITE Christians deemed it immoral. So at a very high cost, WE ended it, but still kept the races separate. The cultures were, and often still are, different. In time, that separation was judged to be immoral, so again, WE changed it. We have no cause to be embarrassed or ashamed. We learn, we think, we grow. Things change. And still, the book on how integrated schools are far better than before, has not been written.

  24. wootendw says:

    "…stop pretending that the Constitution guarantees automatic citizenship to so-called anchor babies. It absolutely, positively, does not."

    I am not 'absolutely, positively' sure about that. The 14th amendment starts off by saying that

    "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside."

    I don't agree with the amendment, but it's there and makes a case for 'anchor babies' being citizens unless we stop pregnant women from coming in for a visit.

      • wootendw says:

        The referenced article includes a quote which is partially repeated in Wikipedia's bio of Jacob Howard who was on the committee that drafted the 14th amendment:

        "During debate over the first clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, he argued for including the phrase and subject to the jurisdiction thereof. Howard said:
        [The 14th amendment] will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to the families of ambassadors or foreign ministers accredited to the government of the United States, but will include every other class of person." – Wikipedia (Jacob M Howard).

        As far as I know, foreigners traveling in the US, excepting those with diplomatic immunity, have always been at least partially "subject to the jurisdiction" of the US and the state they are traveling in so, if this is what the amendment meant, it should have been better worded.

        BTW, Howard was the author of the 13th amendment which banned slavery and "involuntary servitude". IMHO, "involuntary servitude" should include military conscription, even if it were not intended for that purpose.

        • David Macko says:

          The Fourteenth Amendment was never legally ratified. The Congress which proposed it was not legal and three-quarters of the states did not ratify it. Here is some documentation: http://www.mackoforliberty.org/opposing-the-new-w

          • wootendw says:

            Thanks for the link. I have read similar stories before about the amendment's 'ratification'. However, at this point, squatter's rights apply so we're probably stuck with it. The worst thing about it is they way it has been interpreted by so-called 'liberalism'. When the 14th amendment was supposedly ratified, there was little concept of a 'right to an education' (at taxpayers' expense). Lawyers have not only found such a 'right' in the 14th amendment, but they have also used it to force social 'justice' on local school systems.

            The 'anchor baby' clause was intended to make citizens out of former slaves. Most 'anchor baby' birthers could be required (by writing a statute) to return to their country with their baby, even if the baby has citizenship. If a former 'anchor baby' returns as an adult to claim his citizenship, statutes could be written to prevent him from bringing his family with him. In fact, immigration could be reduced by enforcing the law when illegal immigrants line up for handouts and by preventing legal immigrants from bringing in their extended families.

          • David Macko says:

            You are welcome and correct about any rational interpretation of the Fourteenth Amendment. However there is no squatter's right in the Constitution. Regarding the "right to an education (at taxpayers' expense) the only place where you could find that evil idea in 1870 or the previous twenty two years is The Communist Manifesto. Taxpayer funded compulsory education is the tenth plank of Marx's monstrous "masterpiece".

        • David Macko says:

          By any rational definition conscription is involuntary servitude. One could argue plausibly that filling out income taxes also qualifies.

  25. edda says:

    In his own, inimitable manner, Mr Ringer highlights an obvious nail in the coffin of USA. Having recently read "Hillbilly Elegy…." by J. D. Vance, and marveling at its unabated success on the NYTimes Bestseller List since late summer 2016, I'd say both Ringer and Vance – and Steve King – are saying things the Left and Dirty Dems don't want us deplorables to read and understand. It's getting uglier and uglier folks.

  26. Jurgy says:

    I agree with your list of the best ways to stop illegal immigration, and I would and one more – severly punish any US business that hires someone who is in the US illegally, and one I would remove from your list – " Making it illegal to provide … medical care (including emergency-room facilities), … " Robert, I recognize that many people who do not have health insurance, which means any illegal immigrant, will use emergency rooms as their primary means of getting medical attention when they feel they need it, but sorry, how can any human with an ounce of decency deny another human, especially children, medical care in a genuine emergency based on their legal status …

    • Robert Ringer RJR says:

      It is indeed a valid concern, one that bothers me as well. But people would soon figure out that the way to avoid being in that position is to stop entering the U.S. illegally.

  27. Good write-up. I surely love your site. Keep writing!
