On August 7, 2012, I announced a national tour. The plan was to show THEY COME TO AMERICA at libraries, schools, small playhouses and VFW halls. However, two obstacles arose when I started touring. First, hundreds of people were showing up to see the film; I needed bigger facilities. Thus, I was spending a majority of my time finding large facilities willing to rent me space. This spurred the second obstacle. Due to the subject matter, many facility owners feared a backlash from the community and protesters. Other facility owners didn't welcome my message. My tour became very limited. I was anxious to run away from the topic of immigration; I was prepared to bury my film.
Then in late September I appeared on FOX NEWS and something happened which changed the direction of the tour and my life. (Watch the video for details).
Every time the Gang of 8, President Obama and Janet Napolitano spew artificial facts and rhetoric about the borders being secure and ignore the damaging impact of amnesty, they forget the Americans who have sacrificed their lives for this country. They forget the 30 million people who are out of work.
Based on what I have seen during my travels, an amnesty for 20 million illegal immigrants will push America over the cliff. In TCTA2, I risk my life, money and career in exchange for the truth to be told about border security and mass unemployment. Will my film help HOUSE members to reject the immigration reform BILL passed by the Senate? I don't know. What I do know is every American, including elected officials, who watch the film will be able to say they've seen the truth.
