Are We Strangers in Our Own Land?

As we celebrate the 238th anniversary of our Independence, many Americans are wondering if we are indeed an independent nation with sovereign borders.  Have we become strangers in our own land?

Yesterday, two very disturbing stories concerning our border crisis surfaced in the news.  These stories should put goose bumps on all Americans.

Fox News’ Todd Starnes broke the news yesterday that a private security force contracted by the government had threatened doctors working at a refugee camp from disclosing information about the rampant illness among the illegal immigrants.

“There were several of us who wanted to talk about the camps, but the agents made it clear we would be arrested,” a psychiatric counselor told [Starnes]. “We were under orders not to say anything.”

The sources said workers were guarded by a security force from the Baptist Family & Children’s Services, which the Department of Health and Human Services hired to run the Lackland Camp.

The sources say security forces called themselves the “Brown Shirts.”

“It was a very submissive atmosphere,” the counselor said. “Once you stepped onto the grounds, you abided by their laws – the Brown Shirt laws.”

She said the workers were stripped of their cellphones and other communication devices. Anyone caught with a phone was immediately fired.

So now we have the HHS hiring a charity group, which somehow has access to its own security force?

What is the government hiding and why don’t they want the public to know about the contagious diseases that were let through our porous borders?

With this in mind, let’s move onto the second story from yesterday.  Congressman Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) attempted to visit the HHS refugee camp set up at Ft. Sill, Oklahoma and was completely rebuffed by agents of the department.

“I approached a security guard and asked to speak with the manager of the facility.  The guard called his supervisor who said no visitors were allowed.  I asked if they were aware that I am a Member of Congress.  Eventually the manager came out and said that I would have to go through HHS legislative affairs and that the first chance to visit would be July 21st.

What are they trying to hide?  Do they not want the children to speak with Members of Congress?  As a Navy pilot, I have been involved in operations countering illicit human trafficking.  I would like to know to whom these children are being released,” said Bridenstine in a press release.

We now have a situation in which the Obama administration’s policies engendered a new wave of illegal immigration, they clearly knew about the wave for months, and are in complete control over how taxpayer dollars are spent dealing with this man-made crisis.  There is something wrong with this picture.  Why is Congress being shut out of the process?  Is this what our Founder’s envisioned when they declared independence from a king in 1776?

Thankfully, the American people are fighting back.  On Tuesday, a group of patriotic Americans blocked the path of a bus attempting to drop off 140 illegal aliens in Murrieta, California.  Now it’s time for Congress to fight back and reassert its constitutional mandate against an imperial president who has already promised to exacerbate his open border policy.

Here are some immediate steps Republicans in the House can take:

  • Pass Rep. Randy Weber’s (R-TX) bill, the Illegal Entry Accountability Act of 2014, which would suspend aid to Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador until Congress determines that sufficient action is taken to keep their citizens from flooding out country.
  • Change the statutes regarding children of illegal immigrants from Central America and treat them like migrants from Mexico who must be returned to their country of origin within 48 hours.  Congress should bar DHS from transferring them to HHS and instead proceed immediately to repatriation.
  • Bar DHS or HHS from using commercial transportation to transport illegals to reduce risk of spread of contagious diseases.  Congress should also demand an immediate report from CDC on the public health threat posed by the new influx of illegals over the border.
  • Most importantly, Congress must reassert control over the power of the purse and use the budget process, particularly the bills appropriating funds for DHS and the HHS, to stop Obama’s lawlessness.  They should cut salaries of top DHS officials until the double-layered fence is complete, pursuant to the Secure Fence Act of 2006.

It’s high time for ‘We the People’ to take back our government and our sovereignty from a small group of elites in Washington.  It is these elites and their unconstitutional ideas that should feel foreign in this great land, not law-abiding Americans.  What better way to celebrate Independence Day?

    The decontamination center in El Paso, Texas, comes far too late for my mother. She died as a direct result of the tuberculosis she got from illegals. She was a counselor in the El Paso schools. Years ago, when I brought up the FACT that she got tb from illegals, some, even in this forum, questioned whether or not she got it from illegals. AMERICA, ARE YOU DONE SLEEPING?????? Because some of us have been living a NIGHTMARE while everyone slept. It won’t get any better until we ALL WAKE UP!

    I think we should ALL contact our elected representatives and tell them to vote “YES” on ALL of these bills

    Thank you Mr. Horowitz for an informative review of this past week’s issues at the border. Keep defending freedom!

    I am fed up with the current administrations handling of anything but the latest immigration crisis is over the top. It is time to Impeach/fire all the top officials in this administration and take our country back. Of course I fell for these children but we can’t be the worlds keeper. Open borders are a wonderful goal but it can only happen with the application of no access to welfare, required health checks, terrorists not being allowed, and with someone accepting responsibility for the care and welfare of those entering our country. Since this will not occur then we must control all entry. The legislature needs to pass a bill the prohibits amnesty or any form of legal status to anyone who enters the U.S.A. illegally so the message is clear you have not future here if you come illegally.

    Again we confront the question to which the Declaration of Independence addressed its reasoned
    response: Does a lawless Government retain any legal rights or standing? Only when the three branches maintain their separate identities in a passionate and faithful pursuit of their Constitutionally enumerated/defined responsibilities can this Republic be safe and stable.

  6. L. A. SHEFFLETTE Says:

    Obama has caused this problem ! Lets get rid of OBAMA and ALL his Anti-Constitution, Anti-American, Anti-Freedom policies. We should all use the term Anti more often. It means against.
    It is a much stronger word than UN.

  7. Ray Boyer Says:

    These camps are elegal all invalved are breaking the laws. Arrest everyone invalved send all eleagels back where they Came from. Arrest Obama put him in prison where the lying piece of shit belongs. He has caused more damage to our country than anyone in history.

  8. Dar Manwaring Says:

    Every state needs heads up if they are bringing immigrants to their state. We all need to act as they did in California. I’m in Colorado and would be happy to stand in front of busses bringing in immigrants.

  9. Mary McDonald Says:

    We are being INVADED AMERICA… There is nothing we can do individually, we must band together NOW…AS ONE UNITED FRONT or this will be the LAST INDEPENDENCE DAY WE HAVE! We have already lost much of our Independence and Freedoms to the self serving Political Agenda. For the most part they don’t care about US they care about power and personal wealth. Get involved to stop this illegal, subversive takeover NOW! God Forgive Us and Guide US to reclaim and restore a FREE AMERICA AGAIN!

    “It’s high time for ‘We the People’ to take back our government and our sovereignty from a small group of elites in Washington.”

    What a great quote about the demise of the GOP. Old America (and that’s what the GOP has become) simply doesn’t get it. You don’t run the country anymore. Republicans are bleeding young voters, female voters, and voters of color. Nobody wants to hear that Reagan-era ‘white is right’ propoganda. Trickle down never worked and then you handed the country the tragedy that was Bush and Cheney. GOP had their shot and screwed up everything except burning down the WH itself. Your time is over. The multicultural Gen Xers and Millenials will take it from here. Just go watch Fox and remember your 1950s John Wayne America. Cause it’s gone and it’s never coming back. As the great Dylan said,

    “Please get out of the new one
    If you can’t lend your hand
    For the times they are a-changin’
