WASHINGTON, August 2, 2014 – The debate over illegal immigration is heating up fast, and the contention of the debate resonates nowhere stronger than in the urban community.
While immigration is not a Black or White issue per se, the issues regarding the matter directly affect minorities in the inner-cities of America, most of all. Here in Southern California, illegal immigration is bringing about negative changes to everyday life.
For example not, all illegal immigrants are crossing into the United States to secure work oe achieve haven.
State law enforcement officials are reporting that there are young people coming across the border who are fleeing the law in their home countries. Some are gang members.
The outcome is that illegal immigrants gangs will bring more crime.
These are issues that the urban community was already concerned about before the most recent attention to those who cross the borders illegally.
At times, the president seems to be more concerned about giving illegal immigrants amnesty than he does about fixing the economy.
Despite the government’s assertion that The Great Recession is over, unemployment remains high and consumer spending remains low.
The real estate market has yet to rebound to pre-recession levels.
The people who live in America’s inner cities are still dealing with the issues of high crime, poor education, and low business and home ownership.
Illegal immigration has been a problem that America in general and the urban community in particular have struggled with over the last two decades.
Neither the Left nor the Right has offered viable solutions other than amnesty. Recently, three busloads of children were dumped at the border town of Murrieta near San Diego.
The question of what to do with these abandoned children has not been lost on Southern California, and the inner city community is watching with concern. The president could settle the issue, but he continues to govern our nation from the small-bubbled mindset of identity politics.
The president and his administration have divided this nation by cliques; black vs. white, gay vs. straight, male vs. female, rich vs. poor and illegal immigrants vs. everyone else.
Our nation’s house is burning down, and Democrats and Republicans continue to argue over sectarian furniture.
