Can a new film help derail the current push for amnesty for illegal aliens? Chris Burgard’s new movie "Border" is so good that it could dramatically affect the public debate. But because you can’t expect the major media to cover this shocking and poignant film, the challenge will be to make sure millions of Americans get a chance to see it. It tells the story of a war - a war just as important, if not more so, than the one in Iraq.
On April 23, 2007, as part of the Hold Their Feet to the Fire rally of 2007, an event designed to pressure the U.S. Government to protect and defend our borders, the Federation for American Immigration Reform held a screening of “Border” at the Union Station Phoenix Theatre in Washington D.C. At the screening, the courageous director, Chris Burgard, spoke, and national radio talk-show host G. Gordon Liddy delivered the opening remarks.
Interestingly, most of those interviewed in the film do not blame the illegals themselves, and instead place blame on the coyotes, bandits, Mexican drug cartels and drug runners, as well as the U.S. and Mexican governments.
The film demonstrates in graphic terms how illegal immigration has left the Southwest United States a wasteland, even a landfill, where jugs of water, backpacks of personal belongings, and food supplies have simply been discarded at gathering points for illegals along the border.
Sadly, the message of the movie is that the U.S. Government has completely abandoned a major part of America, the Southwest, to anarchy and lawlessness. A viewer gets the impression that the destruction of America is at hand.
To a complete round of boos by the audience, the film shows President Bush talking about “immigration reform” in his 2006 State of the Union address while Congress gives him a standing ovation. The audience sees Bush grinning after delivering this remark, and the film has a freeze frame of Bush standing there smiling, even though there is absolutely nothing to be happy or satisfied about.
The unspoken implication of the film, in the current political and security climate, is that Bush may go down in history as the president who may lose two wars―in Iraq and on our own southern border.
Ironically, President Bush fights Congress for funds for our troops in Iraq, saying that the U.S. can’t surrender in the Middle East, but it seems he wants to raise the white flag on our very own southern border, where the stakes are just as high. He fights the Democrats on Iraq but wants to strike a deal with them on immigration.[/quote]Excerpt
