Immigration:: Strict Enforcement of Immigration Law:: Human Trafficking
An Overview of Immigration Law reveals the lengthy process by which our current laws have come into existence. Our country is a country born out of migration, people who were unhappy with their homelands came here seeking freedom, and by virtue of this, Freedom Fighters and believers in Human Rights will stand against law enforcement agencies on this issue.
I was raised in a family whose Patriarch brought people into the USA from other countries. He brought them here legally, on special cases. My Grandpa was a great Humanitarian who fought for freedom in his own way, not with guns, marches or speeches, but with his actions. He boldly walked friends into restaurants on Palm Beach, where signs hung prohibiting their presence, "What do you mean he can't eat here?" Papa would say, "This man is a foreign dignitary! He's the Chief of Police in his country, which is the same as The Mayor here! Call the police, and the Mayor. I want them to tell me this man can't sit at your counter!" And Papa always won the argument. One time the sheriff sat down at the counter with them and ate.
The point is that when Papa entered this country with an immigrant, they were brought here legally. Illegal movement of people across our borders is a crime. It must be prevented. Crime prevention starts with the enforcement of the existing laws. If you do not like the existing laws then side stepping them and breaking them is not the way to make a change. If you want to change the law, then new laws must be written and voted on, then passed.
Watch the Video, Don't read the Hub
I encourage you to watch all the videos
Normally I write a lot of words and put a lot of videos. I hope people will watch the videos, but if they don't it makes little difference. Not this time.
In the above video (Thanks to my Facebook friends for sharing: "Heavy Metal Vampires on Nuclear Waste" is the backing soundtrack) shocking footage along with headlines as current as yesterday's news, flash as the music plays. "I think I will not go to Mexico... I think I will not go across the bridge..." are the haunting words to start the narrative, first hand personal accounts of people who have lived this Drug War are quoted. Even if you don't watch the video, if you just listen to it, with your eyes closed, it is a powerful statement. You will feel a sinking in your chest at the words.
How many people talk about going to Mexico as a tourist any more? That used to be a destination that was sought after. The rich culture, the food, the language, the handmade goods... "Don't drink the water..." was the running joke. I think now, I will not go to Mexico either.
Credit BelindaSubraman on YouTube for the video and following quote:
"One of the most vicious wars on earth is taking place in Mexico and
along the border of U.S. and Mexico. One of Mexico's most notorious
drug kingpins, Joaquin "Shorty" Guzman, escaped a maximum security
prison in 2001 by driving out in a laundry truck.
. This year Forbes magazine included Joaquin Guzman, a Mexican drug
lord, on its annual billionaires' list.
. A drug cartel hood named "The Cook" reportedly dissolved the bodies
of 300 victims in acid as part of the grisly work he committed for
crime bosses....Soundtrack by Heavy Metal Vampires on Nuclear Waste."
The BBC Reports the Truth
Listen to the News
Normally I tell people not to watch the news, "don't listen" I say, because I know that a handful of people control the mass media fed to this country by the spoonful. If you must watch the news then question everything and talk amongst yourselves about it. Let us face facts! We have been lied to in this country, repeatedly. Do not think that is anything new. Do not think it has stopped. Watergate... The Kennedy Assassination... 9/11... Seriously, the lying hasn't stopped. It will not stop because the American People watch the news and commercials pay for the news.
That being said, you can still find truth, if you wait, watch and listen, discuss it amongst yourselves, decipher and decode. Watch BBC and Fox and CNN. If you want the truth, you must be Agatha Christie, gather all of the clues, and then come to your conclusions.
These two news pieces, the one above, and the one below must be watched. Please take the time, or come back.
Even in Mexico, It's hard to report the Truth
Below is just one from Arizona
How many people must die, how many articles should be written? How much news? How many elections? How many people must disappear, never to be heard from again?
I am not politically savvy, I don't run out and get behind a politician. I've listened to both sides. Why in the world would anyone threaten to boycott a state for enforcing immigration laws that were put in place to protect the citizens on both sides of the border.
Case in Point
Here is the real issue.
If I put up a fence to keep my dog in my yard, and your children out of my yard, I am protecting your children from my dog. Some neighbors fight over whether or not a fence should be in place. I should train my dog, or trust your children... Yes, in a perfect world my dog would never bite, and your child would obey all of your safety rules. Unfortunately, we do not live in a perfect world. We need boundaries to keep us safe.
Wake Up! Please!
Our borders and our laws are in place, not to separate us from each other, but to make it easier for Law Enforcement to deal with the issues we pay them for. Only our officials can deal with our missing children. If a missing child crosses a state border (this usually is accomplished within six hours of abduction) it is harder to track that child. Often, if it's a teenager, the local police start by having family members describe the child's mood, in case they've run away. The first 48 hours are crucial in retrieval of a missing person, and often the search is not in earnest until after that time has passed, unless there is a witness who actually saw the abduction take place. Imagine how much worse this situation becomes if there are national borders involved.
That is the big picture here. If someone breaks the law in our back yard, and then runs across the border, the chance of them being caught and punished, of justice being done, becomes extremely slim.
I know that according to the statistics only 900 people died in this latest border war... Tell that to the families of those who have died. Only 20,000 child victims of the slave trade in Mexico (according to the video)... Only 800,000 victims of Human Trafficking worldwide each year... Yeah, tell that to the victims who pray daily for death. Don't think they pray for rescue, they have given up that hope. They pray the abuse will knock them unconscious, because then they won't feel it. In their sleep they have no peace, because of the nightmares. But when rendered unconscious... everything goes away.
Don't be unconscious on this issue! 27 Million Human Slaves World Wide. That's a number that is three years old, and was only an estimate then! People treated like animals, worse than animals... The drug trade and the slave trade go hand in hand with each other. This is the issue plaguing our borders. If it was just people who wanted to be free, there would be no problem! Wake Up People! This is the news you don't see!
