The long-time comedian, Bob Hope, was born Leslie Townes Hope on May 29, 1903 in Eltham, England. His family immigrated to Cleveland, Ohio, legally in 1907. Young Leslie was so eager to be an American he changed his name to “Bob” because he thought it sounded more American than “Leslie.”
As a teenager, Bob became a naturalized American. Bob’s love for his adopted country was almost boundless. Although he was almost 40 at the time, with a wife and four children, Bob tried to enlist in the Army after Pearl Harbor was attacked by Japanese War Planes.
Not being allowed to fight in WWII, Bob immediately started entertaining American troops abroad. He continued to honor our military with 57 USO shows over the next 50 years until his health sidelined him.
Bob passed away July 27, 2003 at age 100. He started life before the Age of Flight and died during the Age of Drones. A life so well lived. Like Bob, previous immigrants wanted to assimilate into American culture and contribute positively.
A NEW KIND OF IMMIGRANT: HURTING AMERICA
As of 2015, 43.3 million legal immigrants resided in the USA, which represented 13.5% of America’s TOTAL population. This is the highest percentage ever in our nation’s history of foreigners living here. Mexican Nationals accounted for about 27% of these legal U.S. immigrants. In addition to legal immigrants, the federal government estimated over 11 million illegal aliens were residing in the U.S. in 2014. This writer believes the figure is much higher than the government’s estimate.
Today, Americans, as well as federal, state & local governments are dealing with demanding, nasty foreigners. They demand that Americans accept their law-breaking and they demand that Americans adopt their cultures, values & ideologies. Apparently, they want to make America into the Third World hell holes from which they escaped. AND THEY TAKE JOBS AWAY FROM AMERICANS & SUPPRESS WAGES.
THE DAMAGE BEGAN IN 1965
Prior to the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, which was the dream of Senator Ted Kennedy (D-MA), and was signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson (D), the majority of legal immigrants were from English-speaking and/or Western countries.
The new immigration law completely changed the immigration policy that had worked so well for generations. It intentionally restricted immigrants coming from Western cultures, and discriminated in favor of non-English speaking, non-Christians.
This writer believes that the new law was implemented mainly to harm American culture, and create divisiveness in American society. At the same time, Federal bureaucrats & politicians quietly stopped enforcing America’s borders.
More foreigners moved to America since 1965 than our population could accommodate and assimilate. And pandering politicians have discouraged them from assimilating while showering them with government benefits, paid for by Americans.
VIOLA! TEDDY’S IMMIGRATION PLAN WAS SUCCESSFUL!
Fifty years later, here we are! We have the highest number of foreign-born living here EVER since the founding of the United States of America. We probably have the highest number EVER of foreigners living here illegally, as well. We certainly have the highest number EVER of criminal foreigners living here. Indeed, state & local politicians in 300+ jurisdictions actually protect illegal criminal aliens from law enforcement.
Some parts of the country have SO MANY foreigners that local politicians have turned their backs on AMERICANS, and thrown their support solidly behind legal & illegal aliens. Indeed, the entire Democrat Party openly places the demands of foreigners above the needs & security of law-abiding, taxpaying Americans.
By his fourth year in office (2012), there wasn’t enough divisiveness to please President Barack Hussein Obama, so he implemented DACA and told parents from south of the border to send their children here for American taxpayers to take care of.
CAN TRUMP FIX THIS IMMIGRATION MESS?
Recently President Trump said that he will not extend Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) unless the House & Senate agree to fund & build The Wall on the southern border. FABULOUS!!!
Mr. Trump, please bring ONLY immigrants here who want to IMPROVE America, not harm it. Bring in a million Bob Hopes.
