One of the important things noted in the movie is the fact that we have turned over control of the border to the Mexican drug cartels. They control who crosses, where they cross, and they make a tremendous amount of money on drug smuggling and human trafficking. The farmers along the border are afraid to call the police when they see illegal activity because the cartels have threatened them. If we are to be a sovereign nation, we had better learn to act like one.
A few years ago, someone introduced me to the Cloward-Piven strategy. This is a strategy first proposed in 1966 and named after Columbia University sociologists Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, The purpose of the strategy is to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse. When I first heard this, I thought it was far-fetched, but looking at the border crisis has convinced me that it may be something I need to revisit.
Last summer we had tens of thousands of unaccompanied children come across the southern border. Those children brought with them diseases and other challenges. They will be a burden on our school systems, our welfare systems, and unfortunately, our criminal justice system–many of these ‘children’ were not children at all, but members of violent Latin American gangs. This influx of illegals does have the potential to ‘collapse the system.’
Please watch the movie, and if you love America, write or call your Congressman and ask that the government secure our southern border before we even discuss immigration reform.
