Former Colorado Gov. Dick Lamm writes that blacks and Hispanics should follow the example of Jews and Japanese-Americans
Illegal immigration fuels terrorism and brings economic burdens on Americans, former Gov. Dick Lamm said at a breakfast this morning at the University Club.
"It used to take an army and navy to hurt America," Lamm said about the terrorist attack on Sept. 11, 2001. "Not anymore."
Lamm was continuing the theme he espoused Monday when he said in a speech in Vail that Hispanics remain an "underclass" in America because their culture is "not success-producing."
He also pushed his new book, Two Wands, One Nation, where he wrote that Hispanics and blacks need to take responsibility for their "under performance" and should adopt the values of the Japanese and Jews.
His talk this morning was aimed at illegal immigrants in general.
Lamm said 12 of the 48 people prosecuted for the 9/11 attack were illegal immigrants who had created bank accounts in America to fund their attack.
"It’s not people coming to do our yard work only," he said.
Lamm said illegal immigration cuts wages and hurts Colorado.
He recently visited a Denver home where three illegal immigrant families had 11 children in public schools.
Lamm said it takes about $11,000 for each child to go through school and it costs just as much for health care.
"The taxpayers are being abused," he said.
Lamm said we can’t have America as the health care provider for the world.
‘Culture matters,’ Lamm says
