While enduring a “Town Hall Meeting” Friday night that was staged – and I do mean staged – here in Cobb County by Georgia state senator Sam Zamarripa’s propaganda machine – the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials [GALEO] – I couldn’t help but think about a friend of ours in Idaho.
I listened to a former Atlanta Mexican Consul General who continues to find ways to profit from the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens in Georgia tell the audience “most undocumented immigrants in the United States come from Canada.”
That explains why we see the Canadian flag so much on Buford Highway.
Like many in the worlds oldest profession, that Teodoro Maus fellow can be pretty entertaining.
Another recurring theme was that illegal aliens were really just “immigrants”
…and that illegally entering, residing and working in the U.S. was not really a crime if the illegals paid rent and sales taxes…I cannot make stuff like this up.
For those who were not there, you missed a classic performance by the wealthy illegal alien lobby in their robotic repetition of their limited talking points.
For those of us who have been hearing it for years…nothing new.
The recurring theme, as always, was that if you oppose illegal immigration and the invasion and colonization of America – you are a raging racist who is full of hate for human rights, children, Latinos and immigration in general.
Which brings us to our pal in Idaho.
In this photo taken last week, the man standing next to the big bald ugly guy is Robert Vasquez – a Canyon County [Idaho] Commissioner.
We are standing on the Arizona – Mexican border in Cochise County – on a border road between Douglas and Naco.
Please take a long careful look at the border security , and then remember that the President tells us that we must be “vigilant” while we are in our fourth year in a war on terror.
Robert, a Vietnam War veteran who left part of his right leg there, happens to be of Mexican descent.
He is running for Congress.
For his demand that America secure its borders and enforce its immigration and employment laws, he is called “coconut” [brown on the outside, white on the inside] by many other Latinos who vehemently oppose the concept of America securing its borders.
Racism and justice indeed.
Robert is as good a man as we know, and we are proud to call him friend.
It occurred to us that added together, MALDEF national board member and banker to the illegal aliens, Sam Zamarripa, and his sidekick mouth-piece, Jerry Gonzalez , wouldn’t amount to a fraction of the man, or the American, that Robert Vasquez represents.
We will be following the paths of all three here from time to time.
Idaho could do a lot worse than Vasquez….we in Georgia could, and should, do a lot better than Zamarripa Inc.
We pray for justice all around.
Good luck Robert…and welcome home.
