President should take a cue from previous U.S. leaders [UPDATED]Published 9:37am Wednesday, July 17, 2013 Updated 11:40am Wednesday, July 17, 2013
I read many papers and magazines. Recently I read about three past presidents of the U.S.A. and how they dealt with a problem which still creates turmoil in our nation.
Did you know that at the beginning of the Great Depression in the 1930s, President Hoover ordered the deportation of all illegal aliens to make jobs available for the American citizens who were desperate to find jobs?
President Harry Truman deported more than two million illegal aliens to free up jobs for veterans returning from World War II.
President Eisenhower began the deportation of illegal aliens in 1954. His intent was to free up jobs for veterans returning from World War II and the Korean war. The program led to approximately 13 million illegals being deported. We currently have at least that many illegals here today, taking jobs from millions of unemployed Americans.
So, if Presidents could deport illegal aliens in those past times, our current President could do so today. It is fair to ask, why can’t this be done today?
And, the answer is simply that Hoover, Truman, and Eisenhower were men of honor, not dishonest politicians looking for votes.
Today’s untrustworthy politicians instead want us to pay our recently increased taxes so they can fund the many benefit giveaways to the 13 to 24 million illegals here today. So, don’t forget to pay your taxes cheerfully.
