Welfare and You :: by Bill Wilson

Let us be reminded of the Preamble to the U.S. Constitution that most of us over 50 had to memorize and recite before our middle school classes says:

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Contemporary politicians seem to switch up the word provide for the common defense and promote the general welfare by cutting the budget on defense and redistributing wealth in “providing” the common welfare. Even so, there is a deeper problem.

The current administration has broken the law and violated the Constitution by its refusal to secure the borders of our nation. It is no secret that illegals and Islamic colonizers are beneficiaries of hard-earned tax dollars being taken from legal citizens and redistributed to these illegals and aliens for health care, housing, food, and clothing.

This, during a time when record numbers of Americans have dropped out of the workforce and have given up hope of finding a job. Now think about this: The state of Minnesota has an entire website dedicated to “Refugee Health.” It talks about several diseases that these “refugees” the White House administration is “resettling” in Minnesota—have brought with them, primarily from Somalia.

Minnesota is a prime example of failed leftist policies and the danger they present. The site states: Tuberculosis (TB) has surpassed HIV as the leading cause of death from infectious disease worldwide. Data from 2015 show that the number of TB cases has increased (by 1.7 percent) nationally for the first time in 23 years, with a total of 9,563 TB cases reported…

In 2014, 22 percent of refugees screened tested positive for LTBI (latent tuberculosis infection).” Somalia refugees accounted for 26 percent of the TB cases in Minnesota. Disease, crime, terrorist activities, and representation of Islam in Congress (Keith Ellison, D-Mn) emanates from this population near Minneapolis. And this could become a common trend nationwide.

Breitbart reports that the U.S. government resettles more than 70,000 refugees each year and thousands more come illegally.They are bringing in TB, measles, whooping cough, diphtheria, and other diseases that were nearly eradicated in the US.

The Centers for Disease Control states that 66 percent of reported TB cases in the U.S. have occurred from foreign-born persons. Illegal immigration and Islamic colonization under the guise of “refugee resettlement” are policies of the White House administration allowed by Congress, which have long-term ramifications on our general welfare.

There is a reason the Lord commands in Leviticus 24:22, “You shall have one manner of law, as well for the stranger, as for one of your own country.” One law under God brings order, health, protection to all, and other great benefits. Politicians would do well to heed it.

Have a blessed and powerful day!
