Immigration: Threatening the
Bonds of Our Union

Bill Clinton knew what he was doing   
Calexit: Silicon Valley Leaders Call For Secession After Trump Victory
 .....In an echo of the Antebellum period, venture capitalist Shervin Pishevar called on California to secede from the United States. He announced his intentions on Twitter as Trump was on the cusp of winning Florida, securing the much needed 29 electoral votes. The Iran-born entrepreneur, recommended Lieutenant Governor of California Gavin Newsom as president of the California Republic. In addition to drafting the referendum, Pishevar called on Americans to prepare for the midterm 2018 elections and retake the House and Senate.

Trump's Antebellum period
    In 1998, President Bill Clinton warned us that immigration could threaten the bonds of our union.
    Four years earlier, Clinton had responded to California's Proposition 187, designed to put a halt to illegal immigration, by saying it was "divisive" and "motivated in part by racial impulses."
    Proposition 187 was killed illegally by the Democrat Governor of California in concert with the President of Mexico.
    In 1993, Bill Clinton nominated Doris Meissner as INS Commissioner. A careful look at the record (including my videos "Bonds of Our Union") reveals that Meissner was an open-borders advocate and worked to undermine immigration law enforcement.
    Her crowning achievement was the institution of the broad use of prosecutorial discretion in the INS --- a practice that Obama used to extend virtual amnesty.
    To a large extent, the problems that led to immigration becoming a threat to our union began with decisions and policies of William Jefferson Clinton.
    President-elect Donald Trump has an enormous challenge ahead of him as he tries to undo the harm done by Bill Clinton and the other power-elite. His job of renewing the bonds of our union will rival the challenge that President Abraham Lincoln faced in his Antebellum period --- "before or existing before a war, especially the American Civil War."
