Brewer: Most Illegal Immigrants Smuggle Drugs Into The United States

July 1, 2010 by  

Brewer: Most illegal immigrants smuggle drugs into the U.S. Arizona Governor Jan Brewer has said that the majority of illegal immigrants smuggle drugs when they cross the border into the United States.

While admitting that most undocumented immigrants come to America looking for work, Brewer said that many are forced by underground cartels to act as "drug mules," the Associated Press (AP) reports.

"I believe today, under the circumstances that we’re facing, that the majority of the illegal trespassers that are coming into the state of Arizona are under the direction and control of organized drug cartels and they are bringing drugs in," she said.

Brewer’s comments come one week after she made similar remarks during a June 15 primary election debate, when she told Republican gubernatorial candidate Matt Jette that the majority of illegal immigrants are delivering narcotics, "extorting people and terrorizing families."

Meanwhile, Brewer has written a letter to President Obama asking him for details on how the administration plans on utilizing the National Guard troops that it had previously promised to Arizona and the surrounding area.

"I want to assure you that I am looking to develop a solution, not a standoff with you and the Federal government," she wrote.

Obama promised to send Brewer and her staff an update on the deployment of the troops within two weeks of their June 3 meeting, but has yet to follow through, the Los Angeles Times reports.

    If Governor Brewer is right, then ALL Americans [and progressives] need to ask and answer a very simple question. How long has it been since we had ANY ‘leaders’ in the White House? As long as Washington IGNORES illegals who bring drugs into America, then NO ONE in the White House deserves to be seen as any kind of ‘leader,’ and MUST be behind bars.
    Further, any state that has this problem MUST protect itself from illegals AND Washington. Any state that suffers because of drugs brought into America via a border state MUST protect itself from illegals AND Washington.
    In short, America MUST protect itself from illegals AND Washington. We do NOT deserve to be victims of those who belong behind bars, whether they are ILLEGALS or if they are ELECTED.
    Crime is crime is crime. If you love your family and friends and you love being FREE, SOLVE the problem. Washington WON’T.

    • Dan Burke

      But the progressives need the illegals and the drugs coming into America….

      Big Drug busts give them positive publicity. Meanwhile the drugs they don’t get destroy lives, increase crime, break apart families, etc.. All these situations give them opportunities to help more broken people as well as promote their causes with the public. A broken America is more easy to control and “educate” into a progressive America.

      Illegal immigrants give them political power with minorities and even with portions of the American public that they’ve already got to accept little gems of progressivism. Sometimes helping them paint us conservatives as uncaring and racist, and thus perhaps driving those just a little progressive into accepting more progressivism. Anyways, that works for them too.

      In case you could not tell, I really think government is doing what it wants and will give politicians job security and power instead of doing what is right for the people of America. Unfortunately, what then happens is that we ignore the reality that we might actually be doing more harm than good for these illegals by allowing illegal immigration to run rampant. Who gets caught in the crossfire of the crime brought in to our country (beyond the crime we’ve already got), well we could say it is our citizens but I suspect the first victims of the increased crime is the very group of illegal immigrants….

      • JC

        Dan that is exactly how it works. Its very sublime and very evil, but it is for sure real. Its typical poitical strategey to create the problem and then try to look like heros for solving it. It works for shaping the future, the laws and social engineering in general.
        It is time for all states to assert their 10th Amendment rights and put Washington on a very short leash.

    • Dave

      How can you believe that is true? Do you really think MOSR people coming across the border are drug mules? You are so ready to believe anything you read. How does this incriminate Washington? In your opinion I bet anything is Obama’s fault and everything incriminates Washington. Illegal things happen all of the time and it’s not the federal governments fault just because it couldn’t stop them from doing it. Not to mention that if that were true then it does make even more sense to have some kind of system for amnesty for honest hard working illegal immigrants. Then we can aim at stopping any of the other people who are smuggling drugs and the such without having tno worry about wasting our time on the wrong people.

      • Claire

        Dave–I want to ask you something–do you have any children? You don;t have to answer, I will understand.

        • Claire

          Dave–If you do have children, I have some advice.

        • http://beliefnet.com/debrincon Debra Rincon Lopez

          CLAIRE, I have 4 5 children their father was an illegal alien. He did nothing but pay taxes and support his family his whole entire life.
          As did all the other illegal aliens I know. Who ever has been telling the public lies. Is just what it is lies. All the Illegals I ever knew never sold drugs. A very small majority do. This is HYPE told by the News. It’s a very very small percentage. PLUS they don’t break laws because they would be deported. The last thing on EARTH an illegal want’s is to make any trouble to get sent home to starve to death in the dirt. Okay,this is all a big misunderstanding, the crimes and drugs here now aren’t mostly coming from them. Believe me they aren’t the one’s making all the money, it’s mostly the Govt.

        Dave,
        When Odummer does nothing to solve the problem, then he IS part of the problem!!! He’s worthless!!!

        • eddie47d

          Obama has sent more agents to the border in a much shorter time line than any other President. Even crime on our side of the border is down. What we see and hear is a more violent criminal behavior.Those kinds of crimes create big headlines and more fear of the unknown. The morning paper today said Jan Brewer has little proof of all these drug mules and very few fence jumpers get caught with drugs. Those who do bring drugs across are willing to be more violent so they make bigger headlines. Obama made a fairly good immigration speech and did come down hard on these drug gangs and American businesses who hire illegals without proper documentation. He also talked about fairness to those who have been waiting in line and trying to come across the right way. He also said that with Congress so contentious there might not be much more we can do until next year.

          • http://?? Joe H.

            edduh47,
            He sent unarmed paperpushers!!!! Don’t be a part of the problem son!!!

          • http://beliefnet.com/debrincon Debra Rincon Lopez

            thanks Eddie47, somebody else who see’s the true things that Obama has done, and YES they are working. We have so many border patrols their’s no way anyone’s getting past them, Crime is way way down in Border towns. This drug cartel HYPE is just that. Some way to get headlines. These people won’t see the good things being done. The Illegal problems are mostly gone, have been for awhile now, WHO DO THEY Blame now?? How are they gonna explain that the same crimes have been going on here and their aren’t any illegals taking anyone’s jobs. NOW What can they do to blame them for drugs & the ecomomy? they sure did a good job convincing all of these people though!! They need to relize that the NEWs is mostly hearsay and speculation!!!

      • http://beliefnet.com/debrincon Debra Rincon Lopez

        Thanks to God someone who’s not trying to blame Obama for all the problems that Bush left for him. Illegals are not are problems, they are so dumb they believed the scare tactics that were told to them all? I have been trying to talk sense into somebody here. But, it seems like were 2 of the only people who can see what’s been happening here. They are the least of the problems. They aren’t all drug smugglers like they say? It’s simply not true. they don’t know any illegals I do all they want to do is work, mostly all of them do. 2 percent don’t work?? The rest our looking for work! thanks for the insightful posting, FINALLY SOMEBODY REAL WHO KNOW’S WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT, THANKS DAVE.

    • Kay

      Where is the outcry by these progressives concerning the human trafficking, emotional and physical abuse of these people? What of the rape and murder of those who give there money to these psychopaths who traffic in humans! This is slavery! What happened to the outcry from those who are so quick to fault our founders; and the civil right hacks who seek ‘rights’ for the so-called racially oppressed, but there is not outcry for the inhumanity these human traffickers and drug cartels perpetuate on these people?

      By not enforcing our borders, by not following our own laws, we not only allow but encourage, even provide the safest environment and path for these crimes to be committed against these people who might seek legal entry to our country if our government would eliminate the opportunity for these crimes.

      • http://beliefnet.com/debrincon Debra Rincon Lopez

        We have so much border patrol now, I don’t see how anyone’s getting into the country with Slaves anymore. they are coming from somewhere else of course. If you would just relize they are coming from CANADA not Mexico. They have such control of it,NO ILLEGALS are coming for a very longtime, I should know I know alot who got deported and none can get back here anymore. It’s used to be easy?NOT Anymore. The slaves are being brought mostly by boats now and trains and planes. Those poor illegals don’t have the money to do any of this stuff? They cannot even barely afford to live. This is happening by Russians and chinese and other countries paying and doing this stuff legally. That’s who they need to stoP. THEY PAY OFF THE GOVT TO BRING THEM!

  • Evie

    It is a shame that the people in Washington only care about retaining their power with the votes of the anchor babies. I think we need to start over in Washington. Shut everything down and get these people off the welfare roles and not give them jobs of any kind, then maybe they will go back to Mexico.

    I will not vote for an encumbent in the next election. Change is what everyone wants then lets give it to them. Washington is a mess and so is all of its entities. We really need to start over and get everyone out of there.

    • 45caliber

      I think it is time to go back to our original government.

      It consisted of the Dept. of State (to deal with other countries on a peaceful basis), the Dept. of WAR – not Defense (to deal with other countries who decided to ignore peace), and the Dept. of Treasury to pay for those two departments.

      Congress was paid by their states. Only the President and the Vice President were paid by the government.

      Just think of how much we could cut back on the Federal government …

    • http://beliefnet.com/debrincon Debra Rincon Lopez

      NO MEXICANS can get Welfare now or ever! That’s another LIE told by who started it I don’t know. But, if your illegal and have no papers you cannot get help from our Govt. This is TRUE. They have never received help from our STATE’s okay! I’m so tired of this misconception, I won’t stand by and watch this lie continue. The only one’s on Welfare are the russians, India people, vietnamese and other people the Govt let come here. Why I don’t know, they don’t even work, why should they get free rides to come and get welfare? I see them at the stores with Food stamps cards for thousands of dollars. These are the one’s that your paying for. NOT MEXICANS. once & for all

  • J.M.R.

    well the last president didn’t care and neither does this ass hole we have now. i’m gled we have a few who leaders that do [J.B.]in az this one has proven many times he and his cronnies don’t give a damn about the american people. they dont uphold the law philly panthers for one. i know the rest of you americans know what kind of trash thats is in D.C. now

    • Sadie Palein

      No president cares since the southwest was a territory seized from Mexico. (Not any of the ass hole presidents) No president cared about the northern border either for that matter.

      • Al Sieber

        The U.S. was not seized from Mexico, get your facts straight.

      • JC

        That is absolutely incorrect. Texas was “won” from a tyrant named Santa Ana by people from both Europe and Mexico. Much the same way America was “won” from the English. The rest was purchased from the Mexican Government.

        • Al Sieber

          JC, you’re right there, but; in Ariz. we bought a part of Mexico through the Gadsen Purchase.

          • Al Sieber

            JC, thanks for the correction.

        • http://beliefnet.com/debrincon Debra Rincon Lopez

          YES, just like the US was given away by the Indians. YOU will believe anything won’t you. This is the same old thing Stealing from the poor, when will this ever stop. Then you condone it with lies. Nobody had the rights to sell california, Texas or New Mexico, or Arizona, they stoled that just like they took over here and tried to kill all the Indian’s to cover up their lies. WHEN WILL THE TRUTH EVER BE TOLD TO YOU PEOPLE. THE REAL TRUTH NOT THE ONE BY THE GOVT OR ANYONE ELSE. History has been lies since forever!! Get over your lies already! They are stolen lands now and alway’s will be far as I’m concerned!

      • 45caliber

        But the northern border doesn’t have millions of people trying to slip across into the US. Other than that, I agree with you. Several years ago there was some talk of closing the southern border with fences and more people. Some Congressman insisted that they had to do the exact same thing at the same time for the northern border. When it was pointed out that we couldn’t afford to do both at once he agreed – and then used that as an excuse to not do anything.

        • http://beliefnet.com/debrincon Debra Rincon Lopez

          The Northern Border has been the trouble for the longest time, But, none of you seem to be talking about that? Cause the news didnt’ tell you to. If I tell the new’s to make up some lies and splash it all over the news & papers will you believe it then???

  • Al Sieber

    I don’t know why our governor has to beg for help from Obama over and over again just to secure our border, and he just ignores us and tells us our laws are illegal, can any liberal answer my question? we’re gonna end up taking matters into our own hands.

    • Allan

      What if Obama is purposely trying doing nothing about illegal immigration so that he can use the national guard or possibly declare martial law. He knows he’s pissing a lot of people off. Do you think it is a strategy?

      • Al Sieber

        Allan, I agree with you, I think he’s trying to instigate civil unrest among us. that could be one of his many strategies, thanks Allan.

        • Dave

          Why would Obama want to stoke civil unrest? Where did you hear that? Obama is trying to run this country the best he can and he keeps running into people blocking his path and trying to make his job more difficult. You all are pissed when he does something and more pissed when he does nothing. He could never make you happy anyway so why try? The Republicans are just going to use people like you to win t he next election and start more wars and lower taxes on the rich and try to raise enough money to stay in office. Obama cannot talk to a Governor and then have a response there the next day. Have you noticed all of the other things he’s dealing with? Do you really think he has that kind of executive authority? If he did you’d all be pissed about that. The government is broken, that’s true. But it’s not Obama’s fault. He’s not evil. He does not hate the constitution like you people claim. You people have to stop encouraging these crazy theories in each other.

          • JC

            Dave,
            He can’t??? He sure tried to take Gov. Brewer off at the knees with that lawsuit thingy!!!! Even to the point that she had to hear about it on a foreign news agency before she heard it from him!!! Hillary was already gone when he had his meeting with Brewer so that means he had already made up his mind BEFORE he heard the facts agtain! He just didn’t have a big enough pair to tell her to her face!! Looks like hers are bigger than his!!! Don’t mean to be crass y’all just stating the truth!!!

          • Allan

            Dave, Dave, Dave…

            I didn’t “hear” this idea somewhere. I am observing the control over society that Obama is trying to achieve, and I’m certain many others on this blog and elsewhere are observing the same thing.

            How Obama could make a lot of people happy: “Backwards Month”! He gets up on the opposite side of the bed. Once in the oval office he does the opposite of what he was going to do, and where he was deliberately doing nothing, he does something. If he does this for a month, he changes the country’s mood dramatically.

            The Republicans may be the lesser of two evils (don’t assume people on this blog see them with rose-colored glasses) but R’s may represent the best chance of retaining this Republic and its Constitution.

            As far as Obama’s responsiveness, if Gov. Brewer’s request fit his progressive agenda, he would have the already allocated $50 million for the border, plus emergency funding, and adequate forces mobilized in days.

            As for Obama’s intentions, from the post-constitution outlook in his writings and speeches, from his voting pattern, and from his associations with known felons and anarchists, it was clear (not clairvoyance) to me a year before the election that he would threaten America’s very existence.

            Once again, here’s the progressive agenda, and I ask if you see any of these ideas reflected in Obama’s words and actions as President…

            Core beliefs of Transnational Progressivism, by Hudson Institute Fellow John Fonte, 2001:

            1. Advocacy of identity groups rather than individuals: The key political unit is not the individual citizen…but the ascriptive group (racial, ethnic, or gender) into which one is born.

            2. An oppressor/victim dichotomy: The Hegelian Marxist “privileged vs. marginalized” dichotomy with immigrant groups designated as victims.

            3. Proportional representation by group: “Victim” groups should be represented in all professions roughly proportionate to their percentage of the population. If not, there is a problem of “underrepresentation”.

            4. Change in institutional values: The distinct worldviews of ethnic, gender, and linguistic minorities must be represented within dominant social and political institutions.

            5. Change in the assimilation paradigm: The traditional paradigm based on the assimilation of immigrants into an existing American civic culture is obsolete and must be changed to a framework that promotes “diversity,” defined as “group proportionalism”.

            6. Redefinition of democracy: Changing the system of majority rule among equal citizens to one of power sharing among ethnic groups composed of both citizens and non-citizens.

            7. Deconstruction of Western national narratives and national symbols in favor of post-modern multiculturalist views

        After you read this book the things going on now you will be able to see right through, as in they will become “transparent.”

            Angel,
            When I live in Calie most of the people I worked with and knew as well hung around with were all hard working people, just like myself.

            But I saw a change in the SF bay area, and it was going on in the LA area as well at the same time.
            The work ethic started to fall by the way side for many they somehow thought that it was better to just hang out and bum off others. I know that goes on everywhere, but it was really crazy in Calie for some reason, so I moved to New York where the A types are more in charge rather than the what ever crew.

            In some areas the work ethic has never changed, but as with everything else the changes some times are destructive people don’t grasp the level of that destruction until its to late. I was in SF Bay area two months back, everyone is in their own little world one that I can’t understand.

            I have many friends that packed up back in the mid 80′s to early 90′s and left due to the old adage “getting while the getting is good”.

            They moved to places like AZ or CO, as the weather was near what they had in Calie. As well Many of my friends moved down to South America due to the lower cost of living so they just retired.

            Is there a cure? I don’t know.

          • 45caliber

            Time”

            Part of the problem is that when they moved to AZ they brought the idea of liberal state money given to the poor with them. Basically they want to make AZ over to a new Cally. I’ve some friends there who are certainly thinking of moving themselves – to Texas.

        • 45caliber

          Tienaman Square in Pieking would be an excellent address for all of them.

      • WarriorH

        What’s all the hub bub about. The borders are more secure now than in the previous 20 years. Obamma himself says so.

    • 45caliber

      As he explained to Sen. Kyl, “If I did secure the border then you all here in Washington wouldn’t have a reason to pass my amnesty bill.”

  • Sonny

    A majority would imply by definition that at least half are mules, which I doubt. More fear and anger projected at a specificicaly profiled group. The numbers Brewer quotes at not substantiated any where and do they include illegals entering from canada like the 9-11 killers.

    Another thought about drugs is that they come into this country because there is a demand for them. Like alcohol during prohibition.

    I’m really surprised that Brewer fans the fear and anger and directs it specifically at Mexicans. They didn’t swap derivatives, flip homes, do condo conversions, take out subprime loans and most have nothing to do with drugs.

    The citizens of Arizona deserve better. Brewer needs to be replaced. I would suggest with a Mexican American or someone who hates less.

    • chucky

      Sonny I hope you understand Swine flu(brought over the border by Mexicans), Whooping cough epidemic(brought over the border by Mexicans) going on in California. It is progressive thinkers like yourself that has us in this mess. Can’t just enforce the laws you like and ignore the laws you do not like(even though it seems to be going that way, but not for long) 20 states are lined up to pass immigration laws similar to Arizona’s. I had a friend of mine I grew up with in Ventnor N.J. stabbed in the neck 13 times by an illegal that he walked in on robbing his Apartment.(and I live in New Jersey so it is a problem in all 50 states or 57 states for you Obama supporters LOL) I predict that Arizona real estate will double in 18 months from the day the immigration law is enforced. And the real estate in California going even lower(and taxes even higher) as they become the biggest sactuary state in the nation.

      Sonny – it IS THE MEXICAN DRUG CARTEL that has seized 3500 acres of land from Arizona…oh and they also smuggle humans (mostly their own for profit) they threaten their own people if they don’t smuggle drugs for them, they hold their families for ransom until their deed is done…WAKE UP!…that along with violent gangs that assault, rape and murder Americans (of all color), they vandalize property and steal and in general create mayhem and fear…the American people can not live in peace…this bunch of scum need to go at gun point or in a body bag and the border needs to be secure so they can’t come back…Let Felipe Calderon deal with his mess and all his people on the take….sadly people just can’t say NO to drugs on both sides!

        Your saying this is how the majority of Illegal Aliens make a living? Who on earth have you been watching too many movies. I know quit a few illegal aliens, this is what you get when you refuse to let them work? Then they have to find other’s way’s of making a living! But, the majority of them aren’t doing any of these things? It’s simply not true, I know generations of illegals all they ever wanted to do was work, They don’t want to steal or take from anyone. This is just SCARE TACTIC’s force upon everyone by scared people who are sick in their heads. This country was stolen from the Native American’s I don’t see anyone caring if we get anything back either?? How about quit worrying about Illegals especially when Califonia,Arizona, New Mexico & Texas was their stolen country in the first place too. Stop all the Scare tactics & lies coming from the Govt and hearsay from other’s. I won’t stand for this anymore. It’s not true in any way!!!

    • Claire

      Sonny–I used to think there was too much hate too. But no more. I call it being “realistic.” I call it “concern” for the well-being of America, all Americans, and my family. Do you have kids? Do you have a family? If you have family, do you want any of them to get sick with the diseases these illegals transport over the border? Do you want TB? TB is on the rise. Or didn’t you know that? Do you want all the filthy parasites that they drag into the US? Take a good look around you–what do you care about most? Do you really have sympathy for these illegals? I don’t. Not when they knowingly do what they are doing–to all of us. Do you think they care? Hell no, they don’t care. I have no sympathy for the drug runners and the illegals that keep pouring into our country and taking food out of our mouths. I am sick of paying for their keep. America cannot keep supporting these illegals that come in droves. Can’t you realize that? I suggest you have concern for yourself, your family, and America. I suggest you stop the namby pamby BS and get a grip on reality. Grow up.

        What a fantasy, most of the diseases here in US were invited by George Bush, he’s the one that let all these immigrants come here from Russian, Africa, Vietnam and India and all the other countries. Your sadly mistaken, they are the one’s that you had better be worried about. Wake up and stop telling lies. The majority of Mexican’s don’t even know what drugs look like, this is all a myth. The American Govt is the one who brings the drugs here. they wanted to kill all the minorities in the USA. Plus put them all away in prison, so far their sick action’s have worked by breaking up families in every state of the union. You better not worry about the illegals. worry about your next door neighbor whos gonna take your stuff. They aren’t gonna be illegal aliens either. It’s gonna be an American WAKEUP already stop the lies and blaming every problem on the Mexican’s. This has got to stop Soon as Possible. It not true!!!

  • chucky

    Drugs are just the tip of the iceberg. You have a whooping cough epidemic in California. What does this administration need? The next typhoid Mary to cross our border? The Plague? Because of letting these illegals into our country without immunization(our cattle are more immunized than the illegals coming over the border) Where are the woman’s groups who should be vocal about the mexican women(and men and children) who are brought over the border to be exploited. and the rapists and child predators who cross over looking for American Citizens as victims. Latest stats show that 12 American Citizens a day die at the hands of an illegal. if you count that from 9/11 that is more American Citizens killed than 9/11 both Gulf wars and Afghanistan combined(right on our U.S. soil) Enough is enough. NO MATTER HOW MUCH THEY SPIN IT,NO MATTER HOW MUCH THEY TRY TO MAKE YOU FEEL SORRY FOR THEM, NO MATTER HOW MUCH THEY SUGAR COAT IT. SETTLE FOR NOTHING LESS THAN TOTAL DEPORTATION AND CLOSING OF OUR BORDERS. NOBODY SHOULD BE REWARDED FOR BREAKING THE LAW. PERIOD. THIS IS NOT A RACIAL ISSUE,IT IS A SAFETY AND HEALTH ISSUE.

    If this puppet in the White House doesn’t want to uphold the law’s of this country then ask that he be impeached and and anyone else all the way down to a small town mayor.

    We didn’t “seize” the southwest territory from Mexico. They were more than happy to give it to us after we beat the hell out of them in a war !!

      Actually they sold it to us (Gadson purchase) because they couldn’t control the crime there.

      • Airangel

        Yeah anymore than they can control the crime now…not to mention they took the land from the Aztecs and only occupied it for 27 years, we have held our states for 162 years so I would say after our own bloodshed in cleaning up the crime, growing the states to prosperous status, and improving the land that we won and paid for it…IT is now part of AMERICA! If we gave it back, your government would just destroy it. It would become crime ridden again and revert back to the very situation the Mexicans scramble from now! We turned those state around and made them prosperous and the largest percentage of employees are Hispanics who became legal and made a new life..why should they have to give up everything they’ve worked for – for ILLEGALS? Who would you rather have run those states…us or your current beloved Mexico who is doing a great job with your existing land and over reaching Druggies?

  • http://yahoo Rolland

    I’m tired of elected officials getting into an office and doing there will and not the will of the people.
    It’s nice to have someone such as JAN BREWER the Governor of Arizona taking a stand for the people and their wants. She gets my vote for President when and if she runs.

    • http://?? Joe H.

      A very big AMEN my friend!!!

  • http://charter howe

    It would be comforting if folks got thir facts straight before slamming the Governor of Arizona for lieing and profiling. This has to be the biggest joke of the century concerning Gov Brewer and SB 1070 being evil components of a plot to discriminate against Mexicans. The AZ bill if you read it actually prohibits racial profiling and is not used as a circumvention of police power to single out Mexicans who may or may not be in this country illegally. If you really want the truth, Sheriff Arpiao and the neighboring Sheriff in the AZ county which borders Mexico have public records which are are available to the public, which show that over a million pounds of Marijuana, huge loads of heroin, crack and metamphetamines are coming across the border. There has been several murders which we hear about like Mr. Krantz and a police officer which is fact not fiction and Phoenix Az is the worlds 2nd leading kidnap capitol and the majority of these crimes are well documented to be perpetrated by illegal immigrants. The human slavery directed toward illegals is tragic and without federal assistance at the border these problems will persist and increase. Having said all of that, where do our liberal democratic friends think drugs and criminal activity come from. Gov Brewer is pleading for help from the pander-in-chief and even if every illegal immigrant was not hauling drugs across the border, would it not be safe to believe that 50% or more of the 450,000 coming across the border are hauling drugs foor the cartels. Who do you think supervises each group of illegals to illegally cross the border, Mother Theresa. If there is any intellect available, think about the droves of illegals being escorted by coyotes who walk in lockstep with the drug cartels. They are not helping illegals to find work and a new opportunity in life, they carry sophisticated weapons and have an allegiance to the cartel boss to deliver the product no matter the cost to the illegals or the state they decide to invade. I spent 29 years in the miltary and I understand what is happening and to support a radical ideology at the expense of United States citizens is not only unamerican it is criminal. I plan to write to Gov Brewer to get her to provide the documented proof of this outrageous illegal activity, so that the intellectually challenged can see the facts for themselves. This devisive President and the true racist like Al Sharpton and a host of others are fanning the flames of a poential disaster. Gov Brewer never singled out Mexican citizens, she said illegals coming across the border and that included over 500 non mexicans and I wonder how many were Al Qeada operatives bringing in a dirty bomb to blow up a city so that they could martyr themselves for Allah. Or maybe the terrorist want to sneak into our country under the cover of illegal crossings to later form groups to plan and carry out mass murder on our transportation systems or our huge malls. I am not a racist and the issue is not racism, its protection of our borders and our way of life. Its about the rule of law and protecting and preserving our Constitution to allow future generations of America to enjoy the freedom and prosperity they can achieve if they work hard toward that goal. I did not waste 29 years of my life for anything less and although I want to see a fair plan for legal immigration, I will fight tooth and nail against any politician or person that wants to crap on the American dream. Just remember to show up at the polls Nov 2010 and in 2012, because it is a matter of National urgency to vote against the socialist democratic machine that’s creating a banana republic.

  • Airangel

    Has anyone heard any more on Obama and party going behind Congress to grant Amnesty? I heard some bits below…

    Fox News, reported this week: “The Obama administration has been holding behind-the-scenes talks to determine whether the Department of Homeland Security can unilaterally grant legal status on a mass basis to illegal immigrants, a former Bush administration official who spoke with at least three people involved in those talks told FoxNews.com.”

    Reports that the Obama administration is weighing ways to circumvent Congress have Republicans worried. On Monday, eight Republican senators sent the president a letter saying they are concerned that he will grant unilateral amnesty to America’s illegal immigrant population if his efforts to overhaul current U.S. policy fail in Congress.

    The eight senators who signed the letter were Charles Grassley of Iowa, Orrin Hatch of Utah, David Vitter of Louisiana, Jim Bunning of Kentucky, Saxby Chambliss of Georgia, Johnny Isakson of Georgia, James Inhofe of Oklahoma and Thad Cochran of Mississippi.

    Republicans believe that Obama is anxious to grant citizenship to millions of illegals so he can add millions of new Democratic voters to the electoral rolls, ensuring his re-election in 2012 and tipping the national balance of power in favor of Democratic candidates for the foreseeable future.

    O’Reilly also criticized the Obama administration for its lax treatment of the illegal alien issue, noting that Obama had appointed Harold Hurrt to be the liaison between the federal government and states over the increasingly contentious issue of illegal immigration.

    Hurrt is the former police chief of Houston and Phoenix, and O’Reilly says he is “outwardly sympathetic to illegal aliens. As [police] chief, he refused to enforce federal immigration law. Now Hurrt is a federal immigration official? Come on, that’s insane.”

    Hurrt’s appointment “proves that the president is extremely left on the immigration issue,” O’Reilly said.

    O’Reilly also said Obama could face Impeachment if he pardons Illegals!

    Jane Brewer is correct. I was poisoned and terrorized out of my country in their effort to take over Montgomery County, Maryland. Two separate families that are not familiar with one other did the same. Stay away from hotels as they use keys in your absence to get into your room to poison your food. They all work in hotels.

  • Frank the Libertarian

    Does this really suprise anyone? Ilegal drugs are extremely profitable and creat drug tzars. Like Al Capone and booze, we need to decriminalize drugs, profits will plummit, making drug trade pointless. Ultimately such a lousey bussiness situation will cause drugs to disappear from the scene. Want to make it really unprofitable..decriminalize it and tax it!

    • TIME

      Frank,
      In so far as Hemp, I agree with you 100% and I have never felt any
      other way, hemp is not a killer.

      But these people are bringing in Smack, and Coke, Both of what I feel should never be legal for any reason at all.

      • Frank the Libertarian

        I didnt say legalize, I said decriminalize. Those drugs are no different, its a supply & demand. If there is a demand and its PROFITABLE there will be a market legal or not. if its not profitable, it will not matter what the demand is it wont be manufactured except on a very small scale. JUST LIKE SOLAR & WIND POWER…thats why these items have floundered for so many years…its only now beoming PROFITABLE.

      • JC

        Time, just a thought…
        Why should any of that stuff be illegal?
        Keep in mind I am far from advocating the use of harmful drugs,
        but here is my premise:

        If we have a system of justice that allows us to defend our persons and property then we have the right to kill a drug user who is trying to hurt or steal from us don’t we?
        If some crack head wants to smoke crack until he is hiding in a closet…why should I care? It’s his body, his mind.
        But! If he comes out of that closet and breaks into my house, I kill him. Problem solved.
        If I catch him selling drugs to my daughter, I kill him.
        (And I get counselling/education for my daughter)
        Problem solved.

        So, if we start with “real” education about what drugs will do to you and back it up with a society that won’t put up with it, the problem will go away fairly quickly.

        But to keep doing what we are doing is a complete waste of time. Its a revolving door system meant to be self perpetuating and in that regard it’s doing just fine. The war on drugs is never ending and will never be won, not by government officials who find that it is a very handy election tool, that’s for sure.

        • TIME

          JC,
          I can’t argue with your logic as its sound.

          What I can say is that I have many friends that now are six feet under due to smack, countless others who can’t even get a job that pays $10.00 per hour due to the coke use.

          I do feel its up to the person to do what they wish to themselfs, but you know its really a hard call. If a person is an addictive personalities there is nothing that is going to stop them from self destruction, laws, bouders, clinic’s nothing at all.
          Oh and this personility disorder effects around 1 in every 10 people.

          • JC

            Hey Time, Yeah the one in ten thing is about right.
            Sorry about the friends lost and damaged, I have some too.
            Again though, I go back to “meaningful education”.
            There are very few programs out there there that know anything about addictions and how to treat them. There are none I know of that educate in any meaningful or effective way what the dangers of drug use are. And there enlies the problem.
            There will always be a % of the population that is self destructive and there is nothing we can do about that. I advocate that we let nature take its course and the government can go sit on its hands with all its inneffective and expensive, self perpetuating BS!

            Have a good one.

    • 45caliber

      We would eliminate the drug runners – maybe – but we would only increase the local crime as users try to get money for more drugs. We would also increase family violence as drug users attack other family members for money.

      I don’t care if it cost 1 cent per dose, they would be hunting more money for more drugs.

  • Airangel

    From Joyce in Loris…
    I am so sick and tired of hearing the news commentators, including Fox News (another elite owned station), talk about what the American People want. Those people do not have a clue as to how the rest of us live. They are multi-millionairs. They live in an ivory tower. They can not appreciate what we, the average citizen, goes through nor feels about all this. They still want to sit on TV and be politically correct, “we do need some form of immigration reform, etc.”… No, we don’t need reform!!! We need armed guards at the border with instructions to shoot. We need deportation, with instructions that we will shoot you if you return to our country illegally. Instead of interviewing the likes of Juan Williams, Dick Morris and movie stars, the commentators need to interview people in MY neighborhood, your neighborhood. Then and only then, will they realize what American citizens want. Bombard these networks, especially Fox News, with your comments. At least Fox News will report the opinions that are sent to it. CNN, ABC, NBC, etc. will just brush it off and not say a word. These people live in a whole different world than every day citizens. They can not relate to the mother standing in the grocery line with her little coupons, and her grocery list, praying that she has enough money to pay the bill, all the while witnessing a person in line ahead of her, who does not even speak English, buying a grocery cart full of food for her family and paying with an EBT card. The News Commentators can not relate to the hatred that can build from experiences like that. Everyday citizens are facing new challenges every day to feed and support their children. They are full of hatred for the welfare people who take their hard earned dollars in the form of welfare, and live a better life than the working class people. These News commentators can not relate to that at all. Everyone in the media and the government is so concerned about racial profiling. WE, the every day American citizen, could care less about it. Profile away, what ever it takes to send the millions of criminals out of our country and close the borders for good. Fox is my favorite and only channel I watch, but Fox has a lean of liberalism as well. They still want to be politically correct, and my friends, those days are over. Truly bombard them with your opinions and comments. Force them to report what the average Americans, not just New Yorkers, want. Force them to respond to this growing FURY from our citizens. We don’t care what Juan Williams thinks. Let them know that we want all forms of welfare to end immediately. Let your state and local government know as well….

    This is from the heartfelt frustration of most middle class working citizens! I am seeing it wherever I go anymore….things are so wrong with selling out American Citizens for non-producing, illegal, law-breaking Non-Citizens!

    • 45caliber

      I know what you mean about trying to buy food and seeing someone on the dole getting it for free.

      I went into a chain grocery some time ago and walked up to the counter just as a woman with six kids were pushing three full baskets out the door. This was in July here in the South. The woman was wearing a full length mink coat (to the store!) and had a brand new Caddie parked in the no parking zone in front of the door almost blocking it.

      The clerk was so mad she was spitting. “Did you see that woman?” she demanded. “She paid for every bit of that with food stamps! She tried to get me to take food stamps for a hundred pounds of dog food! When I refused, she had her son go get six picnic hams to feed the dog instead. And I can’t even afford to buy one for my family!”

  • animal

    good morning all, 45 call i used to experience the same thing every time i went to my local grocery store , only it was a non english speaking woman that let her anchor children speak for her at the checkout of coarse b/c we educated her and pay with food stamps for her 2 or 3 baskets of groceries then go out to the parking lot and put it all in her denali or escalde with big low rider rims and crank up the mariachi music as she drove off. very frustrating to say the least. then they build a real big food store right next door that is especially for latins there is not a word of english on it, in it or on the flyers they send out. at least now my store is less crowded but to get to it i have to drive passed hundreds of situations like the one i first mentioned . give me a f/n break obozo why do you think my governor did what she did. evidently she has had the same experience . maybe he should come shopping in phoenix for the next big bbq he throws for somebody . oh how fitting it was for the mexican president who is filing suit against us frustrated in phx / go brewer

    • Airangel

      Animal…can another country (like Mexico) even file a suit against us? I heard Felipe Calderon was going to sue us too but legally, I wouldn’t think he has any jurisdiction over the United States! Am I wrong? I would just like duck tape his mouth permanently!

      • animal

        that is the big question can they and will they let them. but from what i hear on the local news they are going to try. i personally dont think they should have a voice period ..matter of fact if by some chance they put a moat of alligators across the borders and stopped em all from crossing , the southwest would still predominatly be hispanic (or whatever politically correct term one chooses to use) for the next century just from all the anchor babies in the school districts. ship em all out and make em walk around to ellis island the way i see it. maybe that trail of tears would thin them out like it did my native (original american) ancestors hope i didnt offend i was flattered that air angel even commented on something i wrote . the only reason i read this stuff is to learn from people like you and pawley etc. i was busy building the skyscapers and buildings that the smart people work in and such while all of you seem to have been in college . but i get a free lesson each day in economics, theology , philosophy etc buy listening to you guys and girls

Anyway, the list goes on…now I just heard muslims want muslim holidays and a bunch of activist rioted for this in New York…do you think Saudi, Iran or any Middle Eastern Countries would grant American Holidays in school or at work? – NO! but they expect us to…can we just start saying NO to all these gimme, gimme, gimme whiners and send them packing? I just heard Harry Reid is at it again to pass another Union bill rolling Firefighters and policmen under Union control in all states, if that passes, that will lead to the Union bosses controlling everyone and everything! They are calling in their billion dollar donation! Playing their card!

          WE DON’T WANT THIS!

          California is facing a budget deficit of over $19 billion thanks to out-of-control government union bosses and their outrageous demands.

          Illinois is facing a $13 billion shortfall — half the state’s budget.

          Dropping down a level, the city of Vallejo, California, actually went bankrupt after nearly 75 percent of its budget was spent on satisfying the demands of the union agreement covering police and firefighters.

          Please sign this petition opposing Big Union S.3194! Tell your senators to vote NO! Taxpayers can’t afford this.

    PERSONAL LIBERTY NEWS DESK – GREAT IMMIGRATION ARTICLE-
    Governor Brewer, Thank you for what you are doing for Arizona. Please refer to an article by Deroy Murdock of Stanford in Newsmax.com, entitled, “U.S.-Mexico Border Easy Entry for Terrorists.” It was published this week. Mr. Murdock lists the names of Terrorist countries who have entered the United States, using Arizona as a pathway, not only to live in Arizona, but to enter other states. I recall, Yemen, Iraq, and Pakistan on the list. Law enforcement in Arizona have documented many of the Terrorist countries.

    President Obama in his Immigration Speech didn’t even mention terrorists. Someone needs to inform him that we are at war, and terrorists have entered our nation.
    If I were to give his speech a title, I’d say, “Hey, I have no immigration plan, but look how great I am. Democrats and I have messed up this country, so don’t vote for Republicans.” Confusing? You betcha!!

    If you haven’t noticed, the government refers to the illegals as “undocumented immigrants” – also I’m 47 years old and raised in the South – we have always had welfare and I’m sure we will continue to have some form of it. I have been working since I was 15 and over the years have come to the conclusion that only a few people that I know really needs welfare. The problem with the system now and something I have seen and never thought I would in the South is Federal employees or contractors working on behave of the government actively going out into the community and recruiting people to sign up for welfare. Think of the impact this must be having on the national debt and will have on the future debt – I know that many who start receiving welfare benefits tend to stay on them. Now compound the fact that if all of the “undocumented immigrants” suddenly are eligible for welfare – there won’t be enough of us left working to pay for it. Then tell me, what’s next? I know, but that’s something everyone needs to think about. What comes next? It will be bad and I for one, do not wanting that for my children and grand children. So in November – let’s vote for “change for the working class” not for the “undocumented immigrants” or the expansion of the “free benefits programs”. I’m looking for the day the government starts referring to “illegal drug dealers” as “unlicensed pharmacist”.

      deanman back in the 80s i joined the carpenters union for a year, we would work on a job for a week, or month whatever then go back to the hall and put your name on a list of hundreds then have to go to the welfare office . needless to say i did not pursue unions any farther. also i dont think if you are disabled and on soc sec that you are waiting for hand outs from the gov. as some say. isnt s/s from what uncle sam took out of ones ckeck each week for the last 30 years. i dont understand why some people say they are paying for someone elses bennies. and i am not speaking about what you are refering to. i stand with all of you on the illegal aspect of rights and bennies. incidently i come from about as far south as you can get besides fla

    Have you heard that there really is trouble in paradise? Slick Bill Clinton’s political heft may become an important factor in the Colorado primary for the Senate seat currently held by Michael Bennet, who has Obama’s support — while Clinton on Tuesday endorsed his opponent, state House Speaker Andrew Romanoff.

    “It has to be a source of some frustration and teeth-gnashing for Obama’s inner circle that Bill Clinton has become a more popular campaign surrogate and endorser than their boss, Obama” says a source in the know!

    Ya think the Chicago thug will put up with the Clinton’s(Hillary is a snake too)possibly positioning Hillary for a shot at the White House in 2012? This could get very interesting … and we all know the POTUS has a temper and is very thin skinned…stay tuned for more…

  • Steve

    Brewer needs to back up her (latest) outrageous statement with actual facts. What percentage of people who are intercepted while crossing the border are found to have drugs in their posession? I’m sure that as Governor she has access to that information. Of course, she won’t bother to obtain it. It’s easier to continue making ridiculous racist comments.

    • animal

      she did , they showed it. it is actually 43 percent or something like that . after 25% whose counting anyway. she should have chose her words more carefully but whatever . go ahead on brewer and get gone obozo

    • Claire

      Steve–read my post to Sonny above. Stop and think about the entire issue, not your sympahty for the illegals. Do you honestly think they would have sympathy for you if you tried to get into their country illegally? No, they would throw you in prison. Get a grip on reality, not pipe dreams.

      • Claire

        sympathy — it has been a long day

  • http://gmail i41

    stevie, if you get any dumber, some one is going to have to put a air crompressor and a air line at either end, since you are so damn stupid, breathing looks like a option for you. The illegals are being stopped in every state west of the Mississippi River with loads of drugs just out of Mexico, still with the facts dumazz, when the enterance points were opened up for “trade” from Mexico. The greaser drug lords just had a feild day. Morons like you have a fit over profiling, but when the sh-tbirds don’t speak English and act as nervous as whores in church, or I should say the Prez in a real church not a mosque, that is who is moving drugs, guns and human cargo. Got it, moron. In the west, if you have trouble controlling fence crawlers, or especially dieased infected fencer jumpers. A few boxes of shells, and someone with a rifle, usually wil cure the problem. Of course the muslim moron doen’t have the statue any more in the world, or any backbone or guts, to tell jackasses to back off and behave or expire.

  • Claire

    I agree with Jan Brewer. These illegals carry drugs into the US in any orifice they can find on their bodies. And in many other numerous ways that are unspeakable. We have so many druggies here in the States too. It is a vicious cycle. Until such time the druggies in the US QUIT their drug habits, maybe it would slow down the alarming amount of drugs pouring into the US. And we know that won’t happen. We need to deal with the druggies just as tough as we would deal with the illegal creeps that bring the drugs into our country. I used to have sympathy for the drug users but no more. They have choices and if they choose to live like lowlife then so be it. Get rid of them right along with the illegals. And I don’t buy into the “bad childhood” mania either. I know several people that had a bad childhood but they made up their minds they would live a better life. I guess it all depends on their mindset and if they have the gumption and willpower to be a better person.

    • libertytrain

      Claire you are so correct. Many people have had crummy, difficult childhoods but find the strength to overcome and go on to become amazing people. It’s not always easy but what is – personal choice – mind over matter make a difference.

  • http://gmail i41

    China had the correct way to stop drug use in the herion epedimic that they had, exterminate the drug user. No repeat offender. Of course with the drug head and pedaler in the out house what do we expect. We have so many 60 year old lawyers that graduated from fag arts schools that have risen in the eleit power circles, I doubt it will ever get any better. Ignorant morons that think legalizing drugs would solve the problem is, a way to distroy the USA even faster and make people more stupid and non productive. Go to any area where Mexicans have worked or gathered and even with herbacide use for years, there is still plenty of pot plants. Mexican drug users and drug users in the USA are all the same,lower end job fillers.

    another thing they bring across with them (beside the bundles of dope on thier backs) and i have seen it so dont say they dont along with TB , changas , and chatos are bed bugs . this whole valley is called the valley of the sun and they need to add bed bugs. there is an epidemic of them maybe a pandemic . plaques ,pestilence,wars and rumors of war. wait a minute was it not ironic that the week the volcanoe spread ash across the continent of europe was the same week of holocost rememberance. seems to me i have been hearing about these days all my life . someone was pretty smart to think all this up just to scare us into conforming but how did they make it all come to pass . maybe some of these atheists and such should reexamine thier beliefs because it sounds pretty divine to me, but then im just a dummy oh and on global warming our shade temps exceed 113 move a thermometer in direct sun 140 plus . /food for thought/

    cali is gonna have a larger money problem shortly as they boycott our state it shows lieniency to illegals and supposedly we are having a mass exodus so they call it. texas has always been a shining star in the lieniency for illegals. my son could not go to the elementary school that i went to unless he spoke english as a 2nd language b/c the classes were always capped with the poor little anchor babies learning english so more bilingual teachers were employed and less english only teachers were needed. i spoke 3 languages ever since i can remember and none of them were mexican. i hope that each illegals leaving az take at least 1 of these meth heads and crackheads with you .

      animal, let it be known that the people citizens in California support the Arizona SB1070 58% for 37% against 5% undecided. Just like our representatives in the federal govt, we are faced with the like minded liberal state govt that is. The idea to boycott Arizona was born right out of LA by their latino mayor and fully supported by San Francisco. We are not happy campers anyway and this proposed boycott is just like other states encouraging boycotts against AZ. Unsupprted by the citizens.

  • OneDamnAngryAmerican

    These people who jump the fence and come to the USA are not “immigrants” or “emmigrants.” Go to the Dept of State’s web-site and see what it takes to come to the USA, either for a job or as a tourist. These fence jumpers are nothing more then “illegal toruists.” They have no “promise” of jobs, which makes them illegal tourists. They need a passport and a tourist visa to come here, and they have neither. This is a new law that also requires Canadians to have passports to “visit” here. Our government is scamming the American people, making us believe the fence hoppers are here looking for work. That is not how it works. You must have an offer for work first, after an employer has exhausted all avenues to fill the job with an Ameriucan citizen, before you, a foreigner, can apply for the visa, and they must have at the minimum, a passport, to be here. Nobody has explained the new rules to the American people. So, if Arizona detains and “gives” these people to the Border Control as illegal tourists, the Border Control must take custody and deport. The USA cannot sue Arizona for returning “tourists” who are in this country without passports. The plot thickens…………. PS-Get any local newspaper from any border town, and you will see that Las Vegas casinos routinely advertise for casino workers in the help wanted section. This proves to me that the casinos do not want Americans, they want illegals. By the way, unemployment in Las Vegas is 14.2%. Yet, not one of the 400,000 illegals living in Las Vegas, is unemployed!

    • http://GOGGLE vaksal

      from vaksal,to one damn angry american,this election just remember the fools in office on every level of government that have destroyed this great republic,just dont vote for them period,thats bad in las vegas,you should be in cailfornia,the land of burritos and gangbangers and criminals and the boys and girls in power here now are letting out 40.000 criminals out of the prisons here because they cant afford to house them,and to boot,they are passing gun laws that make every citizen that is law biding a target for these animals,while these folks up top,laugh their butts off.mark my words,these invaders are going to turn california into a state of mexico,in two generations,and the american people are being set up for genocide period by the left wingers ,pelosi,finestein,boxer,and the rest of the club.what a damn bunch of traitors.we are under attack and invasion and thats the sad joke of it and these leaders here are cutting everyones throats,with these communist laws that they are passing.never thought i would see the day we would be betrayed by our own leaders.keep posting,spread the word,treason by our own government.its sick.

    wE HAVE A PRESIDENT THAT IS NOT GOING TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT THE ILLEGALS THAT COME OVER THE BORDER, UNTIL HE HAS A COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION POLICY THROUGH CONGRESS. THEN IT WON’T MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE
    ALL THE ILLEGALS WILL BE LEGAL. HIS REFUSAL TO PROTECT THE BORDER STATES IS BREAKING THE OATH THAT HE TOOK TO BECOME PRESIDENT. ALSO
    HIS FAILURE TO TAKE MEASURES TO STOP THE OIL SPILL AND THE CLEAN UP IS
    IN VIOLATION OF HIS OATH. “I DO SOLEMNLY SWEAR (OR AFFIRM)THAT I WILL FAITHFULLY EXECUTE THE OFFICE OF PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, AND WILL TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY,PRESERVE,PROTECT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES”-TEXT OF THE OATH OF OFFICE FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES(US CONSTITUTION ARTICLE 2 SECTION 1)
    PRESIDENT OBAMA DID NOTHING ABOUT THE OIL SPILL HE DID NOT EVEN COME
    TO THE GULF COAST UNTIL PUBLIC OPINON FORCED HIM TO. EVERYTHING THE PEOPLE ON THE GULF WANTED TO DO TO CLEAN UP THE GULF WAS DENIED BY THIS PRESIDENT OR HIS CRONIES. YOU SEE HE WANTED TO MAKE SURE THE GULF WAS BROUGHT TO IT’S KNEES SO THAT HE COULD HAVE HIS EXCUSE TO BAN DRILLING IN THE GULF AND TO GET HIS CAP AND TRADE BILL THROUGH CONGRESS. iN ALL MY YEARS I HAVE NEVER SEEN A PRESIDENT SO HELL BENT ON
    RUINING THESE UNITED STATES. IT MAKES YOU WONDER WHERE HE CAME FROM.

    Drugs are not the only things being smuggled in. MIDDLE AMERICAN NEWS,6/2010,reports…”Importing Parasitic Brain Worms from Mexico”. Federal Centers for Disease Control and the California Dept. of Health Services warn that neurocysticercosis,a brain infection caused by a pork tapeworm,is a “growing public health problem in the U.S.,especially in states bordering Mexico,where the disease is endemic. International travel and immigration are bringing the disorder to areas (such as the U.S.)where it is not endemic.
    Victor Tsang,of the Parasitic Disease Division of the CDC confirms;oral-fecal contamination is the standard route of transmission.It is an important cause of death in California”. 85% of deaths were foreign-born,most from Mexicans. 14% of U.S. emergency room visits for seizures were Hispanics.
    It has also surfaced in New York,Philadelphia,and Charlotte,N.C.
    An infected person will shed tapeworm eggs in bowel movements. So if you have people cooking for you or handling your food who are tapeworm carriers and don’t have good personal hygiene,you will be exposed to the eggs of the tapeworm and become infected by swallowing food they touch.
    So,who is preparing YOUR food when you go to a restaurant?

  • meteorlady

    I read a very interesting point of view in a Washington newspaper. They guy figured that Mexico was next door to one of the biggest drug using country in the world. If that is true then his suggestion was that we legalize drugs, forget the war on drugs and the Mexicans wouldn’t have anyone to sell to. Makes sense to me sort of. Seems to work well in some European counries as they contain the drug users in certain parts of town and instead of spending money on fighting drug wars, they spend their money on free services if the drug addict wants treatment. Works much better for them – they control the drug trade, get taxes revenue and crime is cut in half.
