Dennis Michael Lynch is far more educated than most when it comes to illegals.
He has traveled the border, and he knows the border. He says the border is wide open. The government sort of agrees; in a sign by the border a warning says to stay away, in English, Spanish and Chinese. Chinese? This warning is put there where the most people can see it. They are educating whoever might come into the country. What is the government saying? We should be concerned about the Chinese?
Steve King met with Lynch. When asked about the sign, King didn't know the part about Chinese. He was nonplussed about the Chinese. King is very well versed about the immigration problem. But, he doesn't know it all.
The people who need licenses are illegal aliens. To get a job necessitates having a valid license. Most Americans don't think much about having a license. It is easy to get a license if you are in this country legally. But, if you are without a license, the basic problem is insurmountable.
Janet Napolitano says the border is as good as it has ever been. She will only say this. She won't give estimates as to how many are on the border. The sign in Chinese tells us that Chinese have been coming into the country in large numbers. There are also cartels hiding. They make themselves scarce. Napolitano knows this. Who will give us the numbers to know how to protect us. Lynch has said that Napolitano is a downright lie.
Marco Rubio has said in his senate campaign, "I will never support - never have and never will support - any effort to grant blanket legislation, amnesty to folks who entered or stayed in this country illegally."
Rubio is trying to have it both ways. He has plans for the future of the presidency. He said, to the audience of largely Hispanics, let's be clear. Nobody is talking about preventing legalization. Rubio, just where do you stand? The American people are watching. He has changed from saying the border has to come first, to saying the legalization from illegals comes first. Ann Coulter calls Rubio "the Jack Kevorkian of the GOP."
Lynch went face to face and asked Rubio if it was good or bad for illegal immigration. Rubio tried to duck the question. Because Rubio would not give an answer, Lynch said it was bad.
Lynch was at the World Trade Center when it went down. It stays with him as he asks if you saw the people jumping 80 stories to their deaths. He says it is not a pretty sight. The date stays close to his heart. It is September 11, 2001.
One day Lynch noticed a man who is always near the 7-11 store. He is holding the American flag; Lynch strikes up a conversation. It turns out that the man doesn't have a job. He is Tom Weddel. These are supposed to be American laborers who won't work. Weddel is ready to work, and he suspects the jobs are going to the illegals. On the opposite side of the street are the day laborers. We are supposed to feel sorry for those day laborers. They are just poor workers. Problem is, that is no longer the case. Some are driving SUVs, and are using iPhones. Some smugglers charge $20 thousand to cross the border. And, many of them are not here for the "shining light on the hill".
We know there are millions of illegals in this country. Where do they live? What do they eat? We are living in neighborhoods, and are being fed and clothed by you and me. They also know how to get what they need from welfare. Illegals are a tight group. They stick together. There are many who are illegals; nobody turns them in. They have licenses, and Social Society numbers, making it quasi-legal. Some have these documents by stealth. Social Security cards are being used by someone other than the host. This causes a mixup of major proportions. Try to imagine one of the illegals with your Social Security.
The Border Patrol is in a tight spot. Napolitano is trying to get as many as possible out of prison. Not so long ago, she released 2,000 from prison. They were illegals. Nobody reviewed the 2,000. Why didn't she let Americans out? The great Border Patrol is being nullified and unable to do their jobs.
Dennis Michael Lynch has remarked, "I would love to run for office one day." Perhaps he will.
