So long, "buddy"

The immigration reduction movement July 7 lost a valiant warrior who selfishly gave of his time and money in order to highlight the impact of illegal immigration on this nation's working poor, particularly black Americans.

I knew Terry Anderson for about 10 years and had the privilege of participating in several events with him.  When he spoke, he literally "rocked the house."  He was a big man with a big heart who loved this country and wasn't afraid to show it.

There is no question in my mind that if years ago this nation's "black leaders" had developed at least a fraction of Terry's backbone, our immigration policy would look much different today.
