The computer virus, "Trojan Horse," has its name rooted in the ancient story of the Trojan War. The story is as follows: after ten years of attempting to conquer the ancient city of Troy, Greek attackers devised a ruse. They built a giant hollow wooden horse, filled it with warriors and left it outside the city wall. The Greek army withdrew as if abandoning the war. One soldier stayed behind when the army withdrew pretending that he had deserted. He baited the Trojans with the story line that the "Horse" was an offering to the goddess Athena and that the Greeks had built it to be too large for the Trojans to bring it into their city. The Trojans took the bait and were determined to get the "Horse" in. They tore down a part of the wall, dragged the horse inside and celebrated hugely. Later that night while the city lay in a drunken stupor the soldiers hidden in the horse came out, opened the gates and signaled the army which came in unopposed and totally destroyed the city, killed the King, and took the women into slavery.
Fast-forward three thousand one hundred and eighty-seven years. The United States is similarly situated because liberals are determined to have it just as the city of Troy, and unchecked it will prove to be as fatal as the episode depicted in the ancient myth. The "Trojan Horse" in this case is illegal immigration, the nonchalant way that legal immigration is handled, the way that the nation's borders and coasts are not guarded, and the way that pervasive political correctness stymies the best efforts of law enforcement to enforce existing laws. Liberals are "tearing down the wall" for "Trojan Horses" that can fatally harm the United States.
To begin curing the pervasive problems that include: dilution of services for citizens, increasing costs to taxpayers, robbing jobs, and fostering criminals, the Congress should enact legislation that strengthens the ability: of the Border Patrol and Coast Guard to guard the nation's borders and coasts; of the State Department to properly and adequately screen before issuing visas; of the Immigration and Naturalization Service to block entry of undesirable or unauthorized persons; and lastly, incarcerate or deport all illegal immigrants, as appropriate. This should also apply to those who are born incident to illegal entry who would normally be protected under Article XIV of the Constitution.
Until elected officials act to stop illegal immigration and entry, stop aid and comfort to illegal immigrants or entrants, and sanction or punish those who aide or abet illegal immigration or immigrants and entrants, this nation is the modern day equivalent of the ancient city of Troy, and this contemporary "Trojan Horse," just as surely as the one of ancient Troy, contains the seeds of national destruction.
