Illegal immigrants and their advocates have declared war on American citizens.
Signage and foreign flags displayed during the Grand March of 2006 made this clear.

Border Treason, Border War: Part 1
Securing Our Borders: A 'Comprehensive' Solution

“We’ll go under it, we’ll go over it, we’ll go through the air, the sea or the earth, but they’re never going to stop us from crossing ... There will always be more people wanting to come ... It will always be like this.”

-- William Gheen, President, Americans for Legal Immigration PAC ALIPAC --
Secure borders are a matter of national security. Any nation willfully endorsing, encouraging and aiding the illegal migration of its citizens and others into the sovereign United States is guilty of waging war against the citizens of the United States.

This tangible act of war exists whether or not the government of the United States acknowledges the act of war. If the high crime of treason does not apply to elected American officials who attempt to justify such an invasion by any contorted logic, then the word treason has no meaning.
trea·son (tre'z?n)
1. Violation of allegiance toward one's country or sovereign, especially the betrayal of one's country by waging war against it or by consciously and purposely acting to aid its enemies.
2. A betrayal of trust or confidence.
-- definition by answers.com --

TREASON - This word imports a betraying, treachery, or breach of allegiance.
The Constitution of the United States, Art. III, defines treason against the United States to consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid or comfort. This offence is punished with death. By the same article of the Constitution, no person shall be convicted of treason, unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court.

It is a sad state of affairs when it is the people who must defend themselves, their culture, their economy and their national borders against both the invaders and their own elected officials, but that is where Americans find themselves.

Make no mistake. Understand this very clearly. This is a common sense statement...

The fault for illegal immigration does NOT lie with the poor population south of the US border seeking a better life. The responsibility for allowing and even encouraging illegal immigration to happen over decades and continue even as the issue has assumed a national awareness lies with the nationally elected officials of the United States who make the laws and those appointed by these officials to enforce the laws. Ultimately, however, the responsibility lies with the voting citizens of the United States for allowing this to go on and on and on.

We can defend ourselves against this aggression compassionately, legally, morally, ethically and constitutionally simply by doing the following, but we must demand now that our Congress and our President ACT NOW to stop this invasion. Items one through four can be done simultaneously. Item five will occur as a natural circumstance AFTER item one is accomplished.
  1. Secure the border to illegal traffic.

    To do this quickly, the US/Mexico border must be militarized with troops from our standing Army facing outward towards Mexico, not inward towards US citizens. Posse Comitatus has no bearing upon deploying our military forces along our borders to defend us from foreign invasion. Militarization is only a temporary measure. Item two will remove all incentive for the illegal migration to continue.

  2. Enforce current laws against illegal entry and illegal hiring.

    I agree with Jesus Santana, the Tijuana truck driver. A wall between the US and Mexico is ridiculous. A wall would be ineffective and represents a failure to enforce our immigration and employment laws. Proper law and law enforcement will seal the border to illegal traffic. We'll take up the issue of terrorist crossings in a later article.

    Employers hiring illegals are the enablers of this illegal invasion. These employers will say they can not certify the legal status of employees. That must change. If there is no means of verifying the citizenship of American citizens, then we must provide a way in order to be able to hold employers accountable who illegally hire unauthorized guest workers.

    Until we can provide a legal and reasonable means of requiring US employers to check the legal status of employees, the border will need to be militarized. Militarization of the border will cease once employers are mandated to certify legal status and once enforcement of immigration laws and prosecution, incarceration and property forfeiture of those convicted of violating them begins to end the practice of hiring illegals and then using any flimsy excuse to justify doing so.

    The illegals themselves are also criminals directly harming the citizens of the United States. They are willfully breaking our laws and disrespecting American citizens and legal immigrants of all ethnic and national origins. The quote by Jesus Santana, the Tijuana truck driver, should make this willful, illegal intent very clear. How clear does it need to be?

    Proper US citizenship ID then immigration and law enforcement will eliminate the need for militarization, but until then, militarization with the standing Army, not the National Guard, is the most viable work around.

  3. Eliminate the anchor-baby loop hole.

    A child born in the United States to a non-citizen should not be granted US citizenship. This loop hole is being exploited by people from all over the globe. I've seen Chinese websites detailing how to visit the US while pregnant and time the visit to ensure delivery while in the US, thus ensuring the baby becomes an American citizen. Border towns with Mexico report a flood of pregnant Mexican women seeking to give birth in this country. This must stop.

  4. Make English the official language of the United States.

    All government business must be conducted in English only. All voting ballots must be printed in English only. Citizenship must be required to vote. These requirements would prevent our electoral process from being used by illegals to legalize their invasion. These measures would also reinvent and reinvigorate the American melting pot.

    A ballot has minimal text on it. Usually the text consists of the RACE, the CANDIDATE, the PARTY, and a simple instruction as to HOW MANY votes for a position may be cast. There are some ballot questions, but these too are minimal text.

    If a voting citizen can not learn to read the ballot in English prior to the election, then there is a wholesale disregard for the intent of any law to require immigrants to learn our common language.

    If we do not have a common language, our nation will become Balkanized and fractured. We can handle different colors, religions, and ethnic origins, but we must be able to communicate to establish a social cohesion to hold ourselves together as a nation of immigrants.

  5. Allow attrition to handle the depopulation of illegals who will return to their nation of origin once current laws are enforced preventing them from gaining work. As people voluntarily return to their home countries, they will be unable to return except through legal channels.
These measures will be successful in stemming the invasion of illegals to the most significant degree. What little illegal immigration remains must be dealt with by a redesign and reinvigoration of our immigration and visa instruments.

In order to gain the will to pass such comprehensive immigration reform, we must knock down some invalid assumptions.
  1. Mexico is not our friend.

    Mexico and its people represent a clear and present danger to the people of the United States. The people and the government of Mexico ignore our immigration laws. Both are willfully and flagrantly violating American law intended to protect America for Americans. Here, let us remind the critics that this is not a racial issue. America is one of the most diversified nations on the planet. The American Ideal is a philosophy of socio-political culture that can be understood, honored and followed by people of any national or ethnic origin. It can not survive willfull and planned invasion without mounting a defense. La Raza is not the enemy. People who invade us are the enemy, no matter to which race they belong. Citizens of this nation who live and work here and who pay taxes and who have fought to defend this nation are not the enemy. Politicians and groups who ignore this invasion from Mexico ARE the domestic enemy.

    There is an undercurrent building among the American people that we have fought the wrong wars for decades. Since World War II, America has injected itself into the internal affairs and regional disputes of foreign nations that did not threaten the people of America. We are currently engaged in two such wars - Iraq and Afghanistan. Neither can be justified as a self-defense action.

    Mexico is a different matter. There is a direct threat from Mexico created by the failure of the Mexican people and its government to create a Mexican economy capable of feeding and housing its people. So the people are compelled to invade America illegally. But that is not the problem of the American people. The longer our border remains unsecured and illegals continue to flood into the United States, the enmity of the American people against the people and government of Mexico is going to grow. At some point, if this is not resolved, expect to see the discussion of a military solution to the Mexico problem emerge into civil discourse.

  2. American jobs are being stolen and devalued creating a permanent underclass

    "This program would match willing foreign workers with willing American employers for jobs Americans are not doing."
    -- President George W. Bush, FULL TEXT: Bush's Speech on Immigration, The president's Monday night address, as prepared for delivery, May 15, 2006 --

    "...there is someone who will do a job an American won't do..."
    -- President George W. Bush, President Discusses Global War on Terror at Kansas State University, January 23, 2006, Source: The White House --

    These are insults and a very obvious lies. Why do we allow a president of the United States to utter such vulgar insults and lies more than once? Before the illegal invasion from Mexico, who roofed our buildings? Who performed custodian duties? Who did the highway work, the landscaping and yard work? Who harvested the crops? Who made America the world's most prosperous nation on the face of the earth?

    Before free trade, which is neither free nor fair, devastated our national industrial base and good paying manufacturing jobs, America became the world's leading industrialized nation with labor unions and tariffs in place. The lies of 'Free Trade' are now being used to sell us the second round --- low wage workers depressing American wages to lead a race to the bottom for the low end of the American middle class.

    You have heard that Free Trade did not raise the standard of living for the Mexican workers in manufacturing plants that moved from America to Mexico. The same thing is now happening in reverse. Illegal immigrants are moving into the United States, taking American jobs and lowering the wages and benefits paid for doing those jobs. This is a direct assault upon the American worker. This is economic warfare being waged upon the American economy and standard of living. This warfare against the American people is being directed and encouraged by the United States government and the President of the United States.

    This is treason. This is war being waged upon the people of the United States by a cartel of high officials and political parties looking out for themselves -- serving themselves and their globalization masters.

    For years people have said that if the American people knew this or that, there would be revolution. Now we know. The time is here to, not ask, but demand our borders be secured and our immigration laws against both the illegal immigrant and the employers breaking the law be enforced to the full-letter of the law. If the law isn't tough enough, it needs strengthening. This has gone on long enough. I have never received phone calls and emails on any matter of national importance such as the ones arriving regarding illegal immigration.

    Make certain your legislator knows where you stand. If s/he is on the wrong side of this issue, seriously consider running for that office yourself. It's time people ran for office to right the wrongs of free trade, illegal immigration, unjust wars and energy dependence. Our revolution will be non-violent, legal, ethical, moral and constitutional. It's time to get started. Consider running for the US House of Representatives. That is our target. To be effective in retaking the House, we must think and act differently. How we do this will be explained in future articles.

    President Coolidge signs the Immigration Act of 1924, also known as the National Origins Act or the Johnson-Reed Act, limited the number of immigrants who could be admitted from any country to 2% of the number of people from that country who were already living in the United States in 1890 according to the census of 1890. It superseded the 1921 Emergency Quota Act. The law was aimed at further restricting the Southern and Eastern Europeans who had begun to enter the country in large numbers beginning in the 1890s, as well as East Asians and Asian Indians, who were prohibited from immigrating entirely. It set no limits on immigration from Latin America. (text from Wikipedia)
