There is a major battle brewing on our US border and this administration has not only fostered it, but fueled it by ignoring it altogether.
In 1846 the United States went to war with Mexico. California, New Mexico and Texas became part of the U.S.A. in 1848 as part of the Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo. Since this time we have had dispute after dispute with Mexico. Some of the citizens south of the border, still claim our South Western states still belong to them.
On March 31 2014 Sergeant Andrew Tahmooressi was arrested by Mexican authorities for illegally bringing three weapons into Mexico. He accidently crossed the Border due to poor marking of road signs. Sergeant Tahmooressi has been held in a poorly kept jail cell chained to his bed. If the United States held a cowardly terrorist in this manner, the Left would be screaming inhumane treatment. Democrats have said very little about this. President Obama has not done anything to get Sergeant Tahmooressi released. This is a violation of U.S. Code, Title 22, Chapter 23, Section 1732.
It is entitled, “Release of citizens imprisoned by foreign governments. “Whenever it is made known to the President that any citizen of the United States has been unjustly deprived of his liberty by or under the authority of any foreign government, it shall be the duty of the President forthwith to demand of that government the reasons of such imprisonment; and if it appears to be wrongful and in violation of the rights of American citizenship, the President shall forthwith demand the release of such citizen, and if the release so demanded is unreasonably delayed or refused, the President shall use such means, not amounting to acts of war and not otherwise prohibited by law, as he may think necessary and proper to obtain or effectuate the release; and all the facts and proceedings relative thereto shall as soon as practicable be communicated by the President to Congress.
On July 19 2014 U.S. Border Patrol Agents were fired upon by a .50 caliber weapon from Mexico. This is an act of war! This action taken against Americans was used to aid illegal aliens into our Country. Why was this done? To help poor people from Central American Countries, drug runners, or Middle Eastern terrorists? No one knows. The citizens of our Border States are living in fear. Some areas have signs stating the area is not safe. People’s homes have been broken into, property damaged and livestock killed. Obama has been mostly silent. Our Congressmen and Senators some have spoken up, some have not. Some are on the side of Americans, some are not. The Constitution of the United States In Article 4 Section 4 states The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.
As of this past weekend the Washington Post reported. Obama was repeatedly warned two years ago, about the humanitarian crisis of people from Central America swarming to our Country. Where was the President this weekend? At Camp David playing games! Where is our Congress? Some members are at the Border looking into this problem; some are playing games; most are campaigning and fund raising for reelection! Our elected Employees are not putting us first.
If we want to keep our Country, we must be willing to fight for it! We must demand our servants (elected officials) work for us. If they are not willing to put us first, demand they resign, or vote them out this November.
Are you willing to lose the Mexican War of 2014? I am not. Tell me are you with me?
