The Obama administration has encouraged a flood of illegal children to trek across Central America through Mexico into the U.S. because they have made it perfectly clear that they will not enforce our immigration laws. This public declaration has put our own kids at dire risk. According to Reuters, â€śAn estimated 60,000 such children will pour into the United States this year, according to the [Obama] administration, up from about 6,000 in 2011. Now, Obama is trying to figure out how to pay for their food, housing, schooling and transportation.
For 20 years,Â EssenceÂ has sponsored an annual party during the July 4thÂ holiday known as the Essence Music Festival (EMF). According to their website, the EMF, â€śknown as the party with a purpose, is an annual music festival which started in 1995 as a one-time event to celebrate the 25thÂ anniversary ofÂ Essence, a magazine aimed primarily towards African-American women.Â It is the largest event celebrating African-American culture and music in the United States.â€ť
They have conned the American people into believing that they represent the values of the Black community; and nothing could be further from the truth.Â They have sat silently by as President Barack Obama has put forth policies that have decimated the very people they claim to represent â€“ the Black community.
Under normal circumstances, David and Charles Koch â€“ the brothers who control the two entities â€“ would be applauded for their generosity.Â But some Blacks have labeled the Koch brothers as racist simply because they are White, conservative, and libertarians who believe in smaller government, lower taxes and ballot integrity.
Over the years, I have spent many hours reflecting on this dilemma and have concluded two things. First, the problem has nothing to do with race or racism; it has more to do with the lack of relationships with Black journalists. People return calls of people they know or have a relationship with first; then and only then will they return calls of those they donâ€™t know. Second, there is no bridge between Republican members of Congress and other party leaders to the Black media. Over the years, I have tried to bridge that gap, so to speak, but with limited success.
America doesnâ€™t have an immigration problem.Â Â We have an enforcement problem.Â Â There is nothing wrong with the laws on the books; we need to simply enforce them.Â Â The interesting thing that my open borders and pro-amnesty friends will never discuss publicly is this: America accepts more legal immigrants into the U.S. annually than the total of all the other nations of the world combined.
This is why Black men need more White women like Ann Coulter and Laura Ingraham.Â Â Even though they are conservative media personalities, they have done more to promote the well-being of Black males than many of the very women who stridently complain about the lack of â€śeligibleâ€ť Black men.
Everyone touts the potential of Africa as a continent, not just in terms of its vast natural resources (gold, diamonds, oil, gas, bauxite, etc.); but also in terms of its human resources. Well more thanÂ Â half of Africaâ€™s population is under 18 years of age.Â Â They have a â€śyouth bulgeâ€ť that can be a great asset or a great liability.
As members of the National Newspaper Publishers Association (NNPA) like to remind me, Black media is by definition Black-owned and operated.Â The NNPA is composed of approximately 200 Black newspapers in the United States and the Virgin Islands. They have a combined readership of nearly 20 million and the organization also has a digital presence in Â BlackPressUSA.com, which enables newspapers to provide real time news and information to its national constituency.
With the national unemployment rate just under 8 percent, how can you argue that illegals are doing jobs that Americans refuse to do?Â With all the unemployed engineers (partly because of the shutdown of NASAâ€™s Space Shuttle program), how do you justify increasing the number of H-1B visas?Â The special visa allows companies to temporarily employ foreign workers in specialty occupations for up to six years. How can six years still be considered temporary?
