Patriots Understand More Than You Think….Tom DeWeese

”As for those patriots who believe the illegal immigration is so dire that liberty should be thrown on the bonfire, perhaps they need to better understand what they are demanding. Legislation introduced in several state legislatures, and currently in debate,allows state and local law-enforcement agencies to have direct access to one another’s databases. Some of the anti-immigration patriots might see it as prudent legislation until one takes a closer look.” [Tom DeWeese ”The Battle in the States”]

I have to respond to this article (link above) by Tom DeWeese. I don’t think he has his facts straight, except that I agree with most of what he says concerning the 10th amendment and state sovereignty. His idea that we are willingly giving-up our liberties for some protection, may be true for far left liberals, but the rest of us have a different take on that. Plus, he’s uninformed as he refers to people concerned about stopping illegal immigration as “anti-immigration.” That’s the clue….

I don’t know how Tom DeWeese believes that those against illegal immigration are willing to give-up some of their liberties in-order to stop the border invasion. Maybe those that believe what the federal government says and does is enough to allow our freedoms to erode….when in-fact, the border invasion is a military matter and should not be a civilian action requirement, but has to be, since the feds want it that way….

The story continues …..

    You might want to check out the stance of “Numbers USA” and “”. They BOTH totally embrace the Real ID. They seem to think that this federal legislative crap will eliminate or sharply reduce illegal immigration. They fail to realize that the counterfeiters will have “authentic” ID in the hands of the illegals BEFORE the states can issue them! The ONLY thing the Real ID will accomplish is to restrict the liberty and privacy of AMERICANS!!!

    People concerned with illegal immigration are among the same people concerned with lost of liberty and individual freedoms.

    I’ve never read or heard anything that suggests that people concerned with illegal immigration are willing to give up any civil liberties.
