GOP Blasts Obama Over ‘Insufficient’ Border Security Boost As Additional Troops Start Arriving

September 6, 2010 by  

GOP blasts Obama over 'insufficient' border security boost as additional troops start arrivingDue to the ongoing plague of drug violence in Mexico, which is sending immigrants and traffickers across the United States southern border, the Federal government has begun to beef up security by deploying first contingents of additional National Guard troops.

Many politicians, commentators and ordinary citizens have criticized the Obama administration in recent months for making little headway on curbing illegal immigration or a comprehensive immigration reform.

In an effort to address some of this criticism, the president committed earlier this year to sending 1,200 additional National Guards to California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. On Aug.30, the first contingent of 30 troops began their deployment in Arizona, and 72 others started in New Mexico on Sept.1. More will continue to arrive over the next two months, according to media reports.

However, the government’s effort has been criticized as insufficient by some politicians, with Representative Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) reminding viewers on Fox News that he — and some of his fellow lawmakers from the Grand Canyon State, such as John McCain (R-Ariz.)— argued for as many as 6,000 additional troops.

"This administration continues to refuse to secure our border and weaken our missile defenses," he said, quoted by the news source.ADNFCR-1961-ID-19935272-ADNFCR

    Who is he going to blame when the terrorist start another jihad within this country? BUSH OR REAGON? this clown has no Idea of what is about to take place or he does and thats his plan! The only reason that he wont come here and see whats going on is he would end up deported himself! When the government wont do their job and a state must at all cost protect there citizens.If washington is its own country so can arizona we can and will protect the borders from invasion with or without the help of the kool aide drinkers that think the constitution is just a useless and out dated contract. just my opinion!

    • JeffH

      There just isn’t any real desire to curb illegal immigration by our government. It’s all a part of a bigger master plan.

      • Doc Sarvis

        And there just isn’t any real desire to curb illegal immigration by those in this country who are employing these people. President Obama’s administration has done far more than any administrations in recent history to address this issue.

        • Al Sieber

          Doc, how?

          • TIME

            I would second what All asked Doc, as for the spoon fed media rhetoric we can do with out that; so show me the TRUTH Baby, just the bloody Truth, and nothing but the TRUTH.

          • Doc Sarvis

            How about that $600M border security bill? Truth.

          • dan az

            Doc
            The only way that money would work is to buy materials for the fence not the labor unless of course they use the illegals to build that fence.Im not sure if thats even enough at the cost of metal these days.As far as help or boots on the ground goes well thats just not happening.If they inveted in signs in spanish that read if you cross here then you would be shot on sight,now that may have an effect!Some could read that if your a muslim then you would be baried here in a pig skin body bag.That may work as well but to think that he has any concern about the people of our nation is absurd.

          President Obama’s administration has done far more than any administrations in recent history to address this issue.

          He didn’t have any intention of closing the border to Mexico.obama and his administration are dropping all deportations and giving backdoor amnesty.obama wasn’t just satisfied wuth filing a frivolous law suit against the people of Arizona, now he has taken his amnesty feud with the American people into an international human rights cause and placed the people in Arizona(and other states that have or considering similar border security bills) under the jurisdiction of a gang of thieves, known as the United Nations bureaucrats.That is obama’s gift to Arizona, and he would do the same to other states.

          • Doc Sarvis

            President Obama is deporting more illegal immigrant/week than the previous administration did – probably more than several previous administrations did.

            Regan had a much smaller illegal immigrant problem than we have witnessed in the past decade or two but he decided to “solve” the issue with amnesty. Regan conservatives had little problem with that approach at the time; I suppose the same people would welcome it just as much if President Obama took that approach. Right?

          • Joyce

            You have got to be kidding!! Obomama has not deported any illegals. AZ has deported some, but that guy in the white house, wants all them to stay and vote for him in 2012. If you have any facts to back up your statement, then show them! If not, then keep the hell out of our conversation about all the illelgals we have here.

          • http://aol wayne a

            DOC,it’s a shame you have people like you that have to make things up to try to promote your argument!show me the proof!FACT:there are more illegals in the US than at any time in our history! per CNN and the LA Times.

          • http://aol wayne a

            DOC,the article that you referred to has been a obuma supporter since his bid to be elected.i’ve read countless articles that says just the opposite!do you make it a habit to read just one article then believe it to be fact?in fact recent articles by CNN and the LA Times says just the opposite.as far as Reagan goes,he made a deal witjh the democrat congress that he would grant amnesty to the illegals that were here if they would secure the borders,WHICH THEY NEVER DID!

          • Doc Sarvis

            Wayne A.
            I don’t doubt there are more illegal immigrants now than ever. In fact I all but said that in my post regarding President Regan’s granting amnesty to those in the country at that time (in the 80′s. I said AND provided proof that President Obama is doing more to fight this problem than any other recent president.

          • http://naver samurai

            Thanks for the very left wing video there doc. I’m sure that doesn’t count as factual, now does it? If he has done so much to correct this problem, then why did he give some land in Arizona back to the Mexicans? In this area, there is a park. Many citizens tried going there, only to be turned away be Mexicans with guns. Gee, doc. This is really solving the problem, isn’t it? Why does he attack the Sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona? Isn’t he doing his job? How about the citizens of Arizona? Doesn’t legislation passed by the people and signed by the governor say more than what Obama bin Laden is doing? If not, them why is Obama bin Laden taking Arizona to court over these laws by calling them racially motivated? It really doesn’t sound like your “messiah” is doing that good of a job if you ask me. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

          • http://AOL Baby

            You are so right! Obama has not done more to help us! He has done more to help the illegal aliens!! and has Played the over played race card! I am so sick of people blaming President Bush for everything Obama has done! It has nothing more to do then with votes and nothing more. We are losing OUR AMERICA and all you can say is..Blame Bush! Get over it already! and put the blame where it belongs….With Obama!

        • Nellie, CA

          Living close too the border of Mexico, in CA for the last 40 years. During this time we have more and more illegals coming into the county. WE ALSO HAVE OUR GOVERNMENT BRINGING IN IMMIGRANTS FROM OTHER COUNTRIES. Our unemployment in this area is 35%. Two years ago it was 30 % and people still voted for Bob Filner. Bob has not done anything too help unemployment in the area. He has not voted for the wall too curb the illegal situation. WE NEED FOR CA TOO ESTABLISH THE SAME LAWS ON ILLEGALS AS AZ. IF THE ILLEGALS DON’T HAVE JOBS THEY WILL LEAVE. NO WELFARE, NO HOUSING, NO SOCIAL SECURITY, NO JOBS, FINE ANYONE THAT HIRES AN ILLEGAL, THAT THEIR BUSINESS!
          I use too work where I cashed checks for everyone in the area. Most of the area is ranches. I have turned in people that were working for cash and the family on Welfare, nothing was done with this situation.
          Many farmers in the area still hire illegals.
          Obama gave the farm workers a 1.00 an hour raise. The American farmers are already competing for Mexican produce! The Mexican produce is much cheaper than American produce. How can an American farmer compete? When our government, with raises, forces our farmers out of business the imports will go up and we will be forced too buy foreign produce as well as we are now forced to buy other foreign products.
          OUR BORDERS ARE A MESS WITH DRUGS, ILLEGALS, KIDNAPPING! MY FRIEND HAD A HOUSE IN MEXICO AND HE WAS MURDERED. AMERICANS IN MEXICO ARE NOT SAFE. OUR AMBULANCE DOESN’T GET PAID FOR TRANSPORTING AN ILLEGAL BUT THEY ARE FORCED TOO DO THIS OR GET SUED.
          GOD BLESS OUR COUNTRY! FREEDOM IS NOT CHEAP
          BOYCOTT ALL FOREIGN PRODUCTS. FORCE OUR GOVERNEMENT TOO BRING OUR JOB HOME. WE ARE BEING FORCED TOO HELP PEOPLE IN FOREIGN COUNTRIES THAT DON’T LIKE US. THAT INCLUDES THE OIL SITUATION AND MUSLIM COUNTRIES

        • http://aol wayne a

          DOC SARVIS,are you serious? lol lol.according to 2 recent articles,one on CNN and one in the LA Times,there are more illegals in the US than anytime in our history!republicans were in the process of introducing a bill in congress to send 6000 troops to the borders,so to put a stop to that obama sends 1200.Arz has 460,000 illegals and said they need at least 1200,but these 1200 are going to be divided in 4 different states!and these 1200 are not going to be allowed to patrol the borders or to be armed,they’ll help with admin. duties.to make matters even worse,they’re being sent a few at a time,in fact it was announced yesterday that the 1st 30 just arrived.BIG DEAL!obama has done so much,why did he stop the fence that they were building on the border.if obuma is doing so much,why in the hell did he sue Arz,that was trying to do what obuma and his admin. refuses to do.DOC,you’re out of your mind!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • dan az

            thanks wayne I agree with all you said and more,if these liberals would only open there eyes and look at what is going on rather than listening to the gov press then maybe it wouldnt be as bad here.With all the muslim extremist that are crossing the borders you would think the next time they went to the mall they would think that this maybe there last time when the crap hits the fan.I can understand how they can misinterpet what they hear but if they really want to see for them selves then we should have open buses for the tour of the border and see if they dont get the picture then!

        • http://naver samurai

          Where do you get your info from? Cite your soutces and quit just spewing lie to back up the current Anti-American administration. We know that this admionistration could care less about illegals in this country, since one of his supporters is the SEIU. They tend to employ many illegals and rely on them to fill the ranks of the jobs they cover. More illegals, less pay and benefits they have to deal with. Please get your facts straight before you post, doc. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

        • Jana

          doc,
          Way too little way too late. Obama can’t make a decsion, and when he does its a day late and a dollar short. He is so inept at this job, all he wants to use his position for is to play and have vacations and stay in campaign mode.

        • Tess

          Doc,
          The Obama Admistration may be doing more than Previous Administrations, however, He is not doing everything that can be done.
          The memo, addressed to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Alejandro Mayorkas and written by four agency staffers, lists tools it says the administration has to “reduce the threat of removal” for many illegal immigrants who have run afoul of immigration authorities.
          July 29, 2010 By Stephen Dinan – The Washington Times

          The so-called backdoor amnesty for illegal aliens is no longer merely another bad idea from the Obama administration. According to the Houston Chronicle, the Department of Homeland Security is trying to dismiss thousands of deportation cases against “suspected illegal immigrants.”

            I checked it out, GM is building a new “vehicle” at their plant in Mexico, not a new plant.

      I totally agree with you & so does millions of Americans. We want illegals out of our country, especially
      Obama. I’ve even written the Ariz. Governor & thanked her for her efforts on Immigration. If they’d let Sheriff Joe A. head up the “round up”, the illegals would be gone before Christmas.

      Keep up the good work Ariz.!!!!!!!!!!!

  • malcolm kyle

    Mexicans are fleeing the conditions imposed on them by our failed policy of drug prohibition.

    Prohibition isn’t like a disease where we’re still waiting for the cure to be discovered – we know the cure for this. This isn’t like putting a man on the moon or inventing the Internet – it doesn’t take some stroke of genius or feat of technology. We have everything we need, right now, to end this moronothon. Rarely in the history of mankind have we encountered a problem of such magnitude and consequence that is so eminently solvable.

    The Founding Fathers were not social conservatives who believed that citizens should be subordinate to any particular narrow religious moral order. That is what the whole concept of unalienable individual rights means, and sumptuary laws, especially in the form of prohibition, were something they continually warned about.

    Pragmatic libertarians (minimal-statists) and “true” Conservatives agree that many, if not most, of society’s problems are caused by government usurping choices that could better be made by individuals and that government is just about the worst way of doing almost anything. Where libertarianism normally parts company with “fake” conservatism is over moral issues. But a true conservative would have no problem with agreeing, that what people do with their own bodies, and especially in the privacy of their own home, should be supremely their business, and that anything else would entail ignoring the basic tenet of limited government.

    Fake-Conservatism on the other hand has much in common with socialism; Both Leftists and Fake-Conservatives appear to harbor the belief that nature does not exist and that any human can be anything he wants to be, or can for the “greater good”, be “re-educated” into being. Leftists therefore think little boys can be conditioned into preferring dolls over toy soldiers, and similarly Fake-conservatives believe that adults can be coerced into choosing alcohol over marijuana. A true conservative, just like a pragmatic libertarian, would immediately reject both ideas as nonsense.

      I think if they legalized weed and taxed it like cigarettes then there wouldnt be half the problems at the border we have now.Have you had any of this rag weed that they bring in there is a lot better up north.California wouldnt have the money problems that they have now and the big government would be getting their share to boot.Proabition didnt work then and dowent work now.One good thing is that you wouldnt have speeders on the road and the 711s would do a killer business.

    Obama is doing exactly what he was groomed to do.. He and his followers are taken back by the grassroots opposition they have encountered.. They never suspected that so many Americans would get off the couch and actually show up in Washington DC in protest to their agenda for America.. The Constitution has been used as Posterior Wipe for Decades.. We citizens have allowed it with our apathy.. Now that we are awake we had better quit moaning and groaning and begin voting these idiots out of office within cities, counties, states and on Capital Hill.. The failure of those in the Federal Government to protect the United States from foreign invasion, its primary function, is clearly TREASON.. The Federal Law Suit against Arizona in particular and all States in general is an act of war upon the States in support of an Army of 18+ Million illegal aliens occupying our land.. That is TREASON People.. For Obama to lay at the feet of the UN a call to arms against Arizona is again TREASON.. Congress is by lack of action against this TREASON also TRAITORS.. After they are all voted out of office, a full investigation and prosecution is needed for all involved..

      We also need to stop recess appointments, perhaps with the proviso if someone drops stone cold dead of natural causes he can be temporarily replaced until a new election can be held.

  • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Randy

    This National Gaurd deployment is a joke to placate the idiots that think it has any relevancy toward solving the problem. The border issue is very simple and easy to solve. The Marine Corp has many helicopter squadrons in its air wings. Assign temporary base sites spaced evenly along the entire border to each of these squadrons and have them patrol, from the air, the border area between their base to the next, day and night, with fully armed helicopters and a squad of armed Marines on board to arrest any infiltrators of our border. These Marines will not be out-gunned by the drug cartels and can enforce the integrity of our borders only if given permission to use their weapons as they deem nescessary and not tie their hands by disallowing the use of their firepower. In one month the Marines will have locked down the entire border to all invaders. Then we can let the border patrol to start arresting and deporting the illegals already here, a much safer job for their limited abilities to protect themselves from the drug war going on not just in Mexico, but what has now spread accross the border into our country. The Marines protecting the border and the border patrol rounding up illegals, simple and easy. The Army, Navy, and Air Force can still fight the wars and protect the country, the Marines have always been known to be the President’s police force, historically.

  • patrick

    Hey all you good folks, we also have in our military warehouse’s, another solution for illegal immigrants, drug cartel’s, and terrorists sneaking into the U.S. Do you remember Viet Nam? How about Agent Orange? We can have our military start spraying an area about 50 miles south of our border all the way down to central america. This will destroy most of the POT plants along with the people and the politicians responsible for the growing and sales of illegal drugs that make millions filthy rich. If the USA would legalize POT, that would also go a long way to irradicate the illegal drug/people trade across our border. Along with ending transportation of illegal drugs, the USA could help to reduce our debt from the taxes collected from the sales of legal POT!!! Think smart people vote out of America=Obammy boy and his crew of crooked czars.

    • Frank Pat

      After being exposed to Agent Orange during two tours in Nam. I suffer from diabetes II,prostrate cancer all due to exposure to Agent Orange, I would not wish that on the Mexicans, muslims,yes.

  • Anthony

    Agent Orange seems a bit extreme. If it were to be used, I’m betting there is a false flag event scenario where the stuff hits US citizens and not the illegal aliens. Hope to see it never happens.

    As for Mexico having issues, their Patrician Society has always had issues with funding it’s own avarice(s). To date, the suspicion is their own Government has been working hand-in-hand with the U.S. so as to keep the drug-running alive & well. There’s huge profits to be made.

    Seriously – does anyone doubt the ability of the Military Industrial Complex to erradicate anything it wants? Including the access of drugs making it “out of” (say) Venezuela, let alone “into this Country”…?

    Until 9/11, we enjoyed the fact that no real invasion has occurred onto our borders for generations. How was that accomplished?

    As you can see, the logic / if applied / flies in the face of certain responses we’ve been handed since before 9/11.

    To date – I’ve read that only about 30 of the 1,200 supposedly assigned border guards have arrived. And, the funding is mysteriously slow, as well.

    Is this where the so-called October Surprise, is supposed to happen?

    Remember – we are about to enter into the NFL regular season.
    Not saying this is where to look, but, remember SUM OF ALL FEARS ??

  • mitcher

    when you go tothe vote remember my representative Pete Stark, he is so into illegal trespass that he sent me a letter on his position, he and the speaker of the house make me ill, he said he understands my veiw on illegal immigration however he disagrees, this more then any other action shows exactly what the problem is in our government of the people by the people, the very people voted in to represent us decide we don’t really count and they can do as they think would be best for us little consatituents without asking us, when we go to vote in november and in 2012 don’t forget this simple problem and how the reps and senate behaved, we need to close the border and stop this insane lefty migration avenue, there is a simple way, a .50 cal sniper rifle can cover one full mile of border, it is to exspensive to do it with helicopters, and troops spaced out with thermal and night scopes is the only security needed, ground microphones and siesmic sensors for tunnel rats and surveilance with the stones to back it up..

  • ed killen

    During the Great Depression Hoover rounded up all the illegal aliens and deported them. Truman rounded up all the illegal aliens and deported them after WWII to free up jobs for returning vets. Eisenhower deported 13 million in Operation Wetback which took two years, but it worked well. Why don’t we do it again? The Federal boys don’t want to secure the borders because of the latino vote. Arizona should have filed suit against the Federal Government years ago for ignoring the problems with our borders but instead of that the Feds sue Arizona. Perhaps the worst example of sleazy politics and politicians occured a few weeks ago when President Calderon of Mexico berated and insulted Arizona for even considering enforcing immigration laws and our poor excuse for a President agreed with him.

  • Joe R.

    One of the best ideas I have heard lately is to put the Marines on the border with Mexico. The helios are a great idea but do not forget the Harriers and F/A18s. They would do a great job on the border and do not forget the land in AZ that the druggies have taken over. A few passes by Harriers wound make them leave and leave quick. If they refuse to go back to Mexico send them back in body bags, that is what is left after an air strike. Also Marines on the ground can come in and kick butt big time and have air support. Get tough with these criminals who have invaded our country and teach those Mexicans a lesson that they will never forget

      We could set up consentration camps on the border an raise pigs for all those that have the muslim belief they can stay there and clean the corrals and if they didnt like it then they could be the next meal!

      • Tess

        I say let Sheriff Joe put up his tent jails along the border. Let the guards serve double duty. If any illegals make it over the fence, turn them around and send them back. If they need water, give it to them and send them back. While at the border Joe’s inmates and finish building the fence.

        If you need to shoot any illegals use dart guns. then push them back over the border.

    OK, the progressive robots have had their say. First, Obummer is a liar. Truth. He’s a puppet. Truth. Obummer makes Clinton’s me-first ego seem like a virtue. Truth. Obummer has no leadership skills. Truth. Obummer will do anything to get elected or re-elected. Truth. Obummer makes Carter seem like an Einstein. Truth. Obummer’s obsessed need to ‘apologize’ for America’s ‘deeds’ makes an easy case for him being another Neville Chamberlain. Truth. We need Obummer like we need Hitler, Stalin or Mao. Truth. Truth be told, all we need is functional leadership that isn’t afraid of common sense or the Constitution. Truth.

    • Tom

      All of the hype about what’s been spent by Obama is BS! 75% of the debt is due to only 3 presidents” Reagan, Bush I, and Bush II. The ‘bailouts’ were orchestrated by Bush II and his Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson (from Goldman Sachs) who changed the rules from buying ‘troubled assets’ to the bailout soon after passage of the bill. It isn’t all bad since they rescued GM & Chrysler to save American jobs vs all of the idiots buying from Asian manufacturers, thus sending many thousands of jobs to Asia.

            dan az–No, I am not a traitor. Never have been and never will be. I am a Chevy person-have been all my life. You should see my ’69 Camaro Rally Sport– it has hideaway headlights. Cortez silver with a black vinyl top–350 4-barrel and it will haul. Bought it in 1969 for $3500.00. Anyway, I think since the government bailed them out with our money, then maybe we should purchase a GM product. Either way, I would still get a Chevy. Sometimes by being stubborn we are making things worse concerning the GM bailout? It is up to the individual to decide for themselves. I have always purchased items made in the USA. I keep thinking if I buy US-made products maybe I am helping the economy. I cannot and will not do otherwise.

        Bush never gave out as much money as the current idiot in the White House! Bush, baaaaa! Reagan, baaaaa! Chaaaaaaange! Why can’t you libs come up with some new material? Remember, Obama bin Laden is the POTUS and what is happening to this country now is on his watch, not Bush or Reagan! I think you need to check yourself into rehab, lib kool aid is a hard addiction to break.

          Danaz is another moron justifying his actions by substituting ‘assembly’ of vehicles to where the money is in the auto business: design, engineering, parts manufacture, and profit. Do you earn your income from slimy Asians? They aren’t looking out for your best interests, you uneducated Republicans.

          • http://naver samurai

            Oh, I don’t know about that. I know many Asians, sinve I’m part of the Asian community through my wife, and the are hard working, industrious people. They work in the same places you do (factories, restaurants, shops, etc.) and earn an honest days pay. Unlike you, who seems to receive a nice welfare check each month. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

    ITS sad to post the true facts,but the republican party is just as guilty of this border mess as the dumocrats,its time to look at the hard facts,in arizona they passed laws to deal with the massive imigration problem that was caused by all the political correct people,elected as our employees to keep the laws of this great(republic) safe and intact,and guess what? for over twenty five years,all the self serving bums in office have dropped the ball every time,and now the the american people have looked at the truth,because they are no longer safe on the very streets they walk on or in their very homes,and have seen their jobs given to those who will work for nothing like silent slaves,now the american people from every ethnic race has been given the wake up call,and they are furious at the very people that have not done their jobs,and heres the kicker,now that its election time all these bums are pointing fingers at each other,like the blind,deaf,and dumb bunch,that should have stopped this mess long ago,the dumocrats and the republican parties have failed,time and time again,why? because they served noone but their own pocket book for far too long,posting this is no fun,for all my life i looked at government as the greatess expression of this nations liberties,now that the chickens are coming home to roost,(sleeping at the helm)by the folks who were elected,they the incumbants want our support,i say when pigs have wings,these bums will get my vote,guess what? the tea party is coming and i hope it cleans out these self serving nest of communist,neo-com traitors,that have betrayed the american voter long ago,but maybe this has just been a bad dream,that everyone has been having.

      No one ever said Republicans were exempt from this problem. In fact that is why we are advocating voting them all out and getting some new blood in congress and getting some good old common sense back in there.

    i just think the politians dont want immigration reform because they all have maids&yard men that are illegal aliens and pay them $5.00 an hour under the table and dont have to pay any health benifits!

    • Tess

      No to Immigration Reform. It was attempted in the past and it does Not Stop illegals from entering the US.

      Enforce Current US Immigration Laws and Regularions. Protect the Legal US Residents. Deport Illegal Immigrants OUT of the US.

      Do Not Catch and Release. Catch and Deport Immediately.

  • s c

    Here’s a simple challenge, people. For the next 31 days, let Herr Obummer experience reality the same way Americans on our southern borders live it every day. We’re all “in the same boat” (right?). We’re all “on the same team” (right?). We want “the same things” (right?). Let Herr Obumer have the GUTS and the NERVE to PROVE that he cares enough to practice the same bilge that he PREACHES.
    For the next 31 days, take away most of his security privileges. Staff the White House with a skeleton crew. Forget the air cover and constant, 24/7 vigilance. After all, what can go wrong? Good intentions are always best (right?). Let anyone who wants to go to the White House go the front door and be admitted (no questions asked). Nothing can go wrong (right?).
    Is there ANYONE out there who think this prez would EVER consider doing it? Can you give us ONE good reason WHY Mr. Obama might find reasons not to do it? Be advised that your reputations are at stake.
    Give it a chance. Come on, show us what you’re made of, you “elite,” world-class pillars of trust and integrity.

    OK……the GOP blasts “INSUFFICIENT” border patrol. The headlines got my attention…..before I make my statement(of confusion), I am NOT an OBAMA fan…..I need to ask this question(s). Where has the GOP been for the past 10 years on this issue??…..but, most intriquing of ALL…Why is this issue so important to “FLIP-FLOP” McCain all of a sudden??…This guy is a “TOTAL” joke…must have licked his finger, put it in the air to see whick way the winds of the voting populous is blowing. This problem has NOT just come out of the woodwork…this is the makings of both GOP and the DEMS…GIVE ME A BREAK…can we spell A-G-E-N-D-A???? Who do these parties really represent???

    • Jana

      Rob,
      If you have even bothered to read prior posts on different articles, you will find that we have all said the same thing. That is why we are advocating “VOTE THEM ALL OUT”. Lets get some fresh blood and common sense in there.

    • Tess

      Rob,
      Over the past 20 to 30 years the Administrations on both sides have failed regarding controlling the Illegal Immigration flow into the US. The reason it is so important now is due to the poor economy in the US.

      For those who imply that illegals only do Migrant work think again and read some current articles. Illegals are working all types of jobs throughout the US. Some pay less than others. Out of work Legal Immigrants would willing do the work.

  • Lawrence Baker

    Hey Sheriff Joe, make the Federal Government and the Narco/bankster State of Mexico produce the Treasonous secret trade agreements signed by Bush and Fox and Obama and Calderon.
    NAFTA was illegally planned and implemented and was not ratified by Congress and it can not “legally” supersede our Constitution.
    The U.S Justice department is part of the Traitor criminal organization of World Banksters and Big Oil who have overthrown, by corruption, our American Independence, Constitution and Freedom.
    Not one Bankster was brought to Justice for the world’s greatest mortgage fraud (15 trillion), yet the Justice Dept. go after Arizona for enforcing a Federal law that the Feds refuse to enforce.
    The illegal and Fascist Federal government wants to implement the secret trade agreements and open the borders to the North American Union. The political appointed Fascist Justice Department is there to deliver for them and crush any state that gets in their way.
    The corrupt Fascist Federal Government and the corrupt Justice Dept is the back door criminals who refuse to honor our American Constitution which they have overthrown; they are the Treason criminals to our Democracy who someday will be brought to real Justice.
    Ask yourself why the Narco/bankster state of Mexico has kept the Mexican people down to starvation wages and live in third world poverty when their country is so rich. Cheap slave labor is why, by design, by the multinational corporations who corrupted the elite Mexican government.
    The Feds is prosecuting and harassing Arizona because Arizona wants to enforce the law that employers verify legal immigration before hiring an employee. The Feds refuse to enforce the laws that are on the books or even collect income tax or employer tax from the employers or the illegal workers.
    Federal Illegal aliens are a freebee for multinational corporations at states expense.
    Racial Profiling is a Joke. If a white man stole my car, I wouldn’t be looking for a Mexican or a Negro! Get real!
    I stand with the Sheriffs and the State of Arizona to fight for our Constitutional Democracy, Independence and Freedom.
    It is still legal in Arizona to buy a gun and to join a state militia.
    It is a citizen’s responsibility to defend our Constitution that embodies our Freedom, Independence and Democracy.

  • Tom

    Only last year our governor, Jan Brewer, and Senator John McCain asked the feds to send an additional 250 Nation Guard trrops to patrol the border. When the announcement was made that an additional 600 would be arriving in Arizona, the story changed to “we want more” and “that’s not enough”. This from the guv who spewed her idea in June that there were ‘headless bodies’ in the Arizona deserts due to immigrants. Also the ‘majority of immigrants are drug smugglers’ drivelled from her lips and never a shred of proof to either claim. The assertion of increasing border violence from politicians runs counter to the FBI crime statistics but certainly serves them in their reelection BS.
    If there were that many drug smugglers we’d see the price of illegal drugs dropping like a rock.

      Sounds like something that works against these invaders-sometimes it may sound like a wild idea-even silly- the silly ones can work beyond belief- show them some danger and they will start not trying to cross the border anymore- sure the border is vast and many miles- we have to do better because what the Feds give us is not even enough to stop an armadillo from taking a dump.

  • http://bestnews-source.com Shamas

    Now it should be blindingly obvious to anyone with half a brain. Barry Soetoro is NOT an American working on behalf of the Country’s best interest. Duh!
    He is nothing but a freaking Global Socialist….a fraud and a Traitor to American Principles and our US Constitution. Barry Boy would rather go to war with Americans in Arizona than fight for our US Constitution and our American Sovereignty. What’s worse, he actually had the audacity to go to the UN and tattle on Arizona for trying to protect their own citizenry against the “Foreign Invasion” they face now!
    Indeed, the truth can’t be any more blatant than it is today. Barry Boy is nothing more than a tyrant and fraud trying to bring America to her knees. But the good news is, he is only a one term dictator tyrant. He won’t dare try for a second term. If he applies for our Government housing and welfare program next term, he will have to show proof that he is qualified to participate in the program…a task he is not willing to do even today. My vote is…get rid of all the Anti-American Government workers….elected or not. “We the people…” don’t need to waste any more time and money on likes of them.

    But notwithstanding, the most important question now is, why hasn’t Barry Boy et al., been fired and brought up on High Treason charges by now? What…nobody in our Government employ has the guts or American testicular fortitude to fight for Americanism anymore?
    Shame on us all.

    Could we stop fighting among ourselves, if we could we would find our answers. So let’s start in the first place – all countries have borders for a reason. All countries have laws for a reason. So with both of these thoughts alone it should be enouh that OUR country of people by the people of the people should protect the borders and its citizans. Who cares if someone may have misspoke a fact/or maybe its part of the info the government does not release to help protects its people. Its very strange that Gov. Brewer misspoke some info so now all the facts anyone ever said people try to use against Americans. I can’t help but wonder at the thinking of people who want to let people come into our country illegally, and then think its ok for them to walk on “Old Glory” (our flag). Freedom of speech should work both ways. So why are we wrong for speaking out against ILLEGAL immagration? and Why is it a risk to our life and limb to do so. Because MISTER obama wants to get their votes, what about mine?

    • http://personalliberty.com 32eagle

      Hey now Obama is no mister -he is a scum-that deserves no respect- and I agree argueing is wasting energy-Congress is a waste of our tax dollars and many a working man wants to get drunk and wasted- what Obama did to us is that after he confessed to some college students that he was ineligible to run for president- he went and had the nerve to move ahead and deny the truth- he did not do what is right for the USA- he has performed one of the biggest con jobs since the Trojan Horse and Bernie Maddoff.No offense to you Julie- Obama is a terrorist with all the money he wasted how far this nation could have gone with McCain would have been many huge leaps for mankind

  • Tess

    Yes to Legal Immigration.
    ICE Agency Expects to Deport Some 400,000 People By End of Fiscal Year – July 26, 2010
    The number of illegal immigrants in the US is estimated from 7 to 20 million.
    An average of 300,000 to 600,000 people entered the United States without authorization each year.
    The current Administration needs to do more to deport illegal immigrants during the recent economy.
    Arizona asked for 3,000 additional National Guard Troops and so far they have gotten only 30 and 15 Billboard Signs Warning Citizens About Drug Cartels Operating on Public Lands.
    It is wrong when Illegal Immigrants continue to outpace the number of legal immigrants.

  • Benito

    In the last four months Jan Brewer has been caught lying, three times and counting.

    The comments made on June 16, 2010, and June 27, 2010, clearly indicates that the Brewer says that immigrants are beheading people in the United States desert. She first ran away from the question and the press when confronted with the question. She finally when to FOX/ FAKE News to recant her lie.

    When Brewer was confronted with the fact the two of her top Advisors (Paul Senseman, Chuck Coughlin) are lobbyist for “Private Prisons” giant CCA she first ran away from the question and the press.

    In an attempt to gain sympathy, she first said her father had died in Germany fighting the Nazi in World War II (which ended 1945) but of course we find out the truth that her father was never in Germany and died in California in 1955. Do you see a trend here?

    Brewer signed into law SB 1070 Bill (Did she even read it?), lied about the crime rates in AZ (even Janet Napolitano knows that all crimes rates went down), and now we find out that she is in the pockets of PRIVATE PRISONS who stand to benefit with the increase Federal jailing, and thus they will pay her back, I wonder if it has to do anything about the fact that her son was transferred to a brand new prison, he was convicted for rape and sexual assault, I guess the fruit does not fall far the tree.
