In America, Concentrate on Being American
by Gene Guyant, Chief Patrol Agent (Ret) and a Founding Member of NAFBPO
These days we hear much about the “Latino vote” and how it can influence elections. That should not be. It’s a shame and a bad omen for our nation when sizable ethnic groups and organizations focus their political ideologies and programs based on a particular race, immigration status and language, rather than on the common national good. The long range result can then only be a nation bitterly divided on ethnic grounds and unable to strive toward the positive goals cited in our Declaration of Independence.
Latin Americans for the most part constitute a hard working, law abiding people. But the promise of an even better life elsewhere, the so-called “American Dream,” has lured and kept uncounted millions of them illegally within our borders. This large influx cannot continue because it cannot help but destabilize and permanently change our own society from the local level on up. In effect, a new, dual society has already emerged. That new one does not assimilate because its members have retained and implanted their own language and mores and currently base their political preferences on the goal of once more bypassing our immigration laws and thus setting a new welcome and invitation for more millions to enter illegally in the future. Ignoring this situation, as National Administrations have done for more than 30 years, will not make the immigration chaos disappear, or even lessen. A “comprehensive immigration reform” (the cover term for amnesty) is definitely not the answer. This situation is only going to grow increasingly dangerous for our nation’s future stability and cultural homogeneity in generations to come.
The United States has championed the side of democracy in this hemisphere and has resisted and opposed un-democratic regimes. We have also given asylum to many thousands of Latin Americans fleeing from natural disasters or political oppression in their countries of origin. However, we must now have the internal fortitude to face this growing cultural tearing apart of our society. By all means, we should maintain a friendship with our Latin American neighbors south of the Rio Grande, but in their own countries and not by allowing them to have a hand in changing the character of our own nation. If they do wish to visit or live here permanently, let’s have them do it legally at the start, by obeying our rules and laws. Then they’ll be welcome to stay. But not by entering illegally and later demanding amnesty by the millions. We cannot, as a nation, keep absorbing millions who would do otherwise.
