In Arizona, the number one political issue by far is border security. In the 8th congressional district, immigration is the top issue for 60 percent of the voters, according to surveys conducted by the republican candidate, Mike Hellon. The next closest issue is education at 9 percent.
Around the country, people are concerned about our open borders and the future of America. But congress has decided to do nothing about it and the Bush administration won’t lead.
No nation can long survive if it loses its character, language, culture, faith and principles to people with other agendas. We have been infiltrated by illegals, some of whom mean us harm and many of whom have agendas still based in their native countries. Who is saying they must become Americans and defining for them what that means?
It is no coincidence that the number one book in America right now is Pat Buchanan’s “State of Emergency.” Read it and weep. Better still, turn up the heat on the politicians if you want to pass on to your children and grandchildren the kind of country we received from our parents and grandparents.
