Border-Jumpers "Spit in the Face" of Legal Immigrants

Darryn “Dutch” Martin, a member of the National Center’s Project 21 black leadership network, points out how illegal immigration hurts legal immigrants in particular and hurts America as a whole in economic, political and social ways.

As a former foreign service officer and the husband of a naturalized American citizen who came from Africa, he is certainly in a position of great knowledge on this issue.

On the 8/27/14 edition of “The Final Say” radio show with Brett and Jon Rappaport, Dutch said that legal African immigrants such as his wife are “very, very productive citizens.”  He noted that these people played by the rules, brought needed skills with them to this nation and also tend to want to successfully assimilate and immerse their children in American society.  Dutch said that those who sneak across the border rather than follow the stated rules for coming to the United States “spit in the face” of legal immigrants.
