The New Kids on the Border.


Thursday night, the head of the Border Patrol union was on the PBS Nightly News Hour.  He was speaking about how many of the men can’t be deployed because they have to cook and take care of the shelters.

Instead of the group The New Kids on The Block, these are the New Kids on the Border.` Many are not kids.  Many are in gangs in Central America.

I just finished reading a book by Ray Suarez of PBS, discussing five hundred years of Latinos in North America.  It is a varied experience.  Some were in New Mexico, before Plymouth Rock.  I get that.

I’m not against immigration.  The United States is a nation of immigrants and needs immigrants for fresh ideas.

My friend Anastase came here as a refugee.  If you can genuinely prove you are in danger, you can apply for asylum.

Otherwise, your first act here, is breaking the law.  On a simple level, it’s the equivalent of someone coming to your home uninvited and never leaving.  Don’t do it.  I have the right to allow who I want in my house.

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
