Obama Deploys Troops To Help Secure Mexican Border

May 31, 2010 by  

Obama deploys troops to help secure Mexican borderFacing mounting scrutiny over his lack of action regarding immigration reform, President Obama has ordered 1,200 National Guard troops to be deployed along the Mexican border, according to administration officials close to the matter.

Obama also plans on requesting $500 million from Congress to improve border protection and local law enforcement in the four states just north of Mexico.

An administration official told Fox News that the new troops and additional funds will be used to temporarily "provide intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance support" until the Border Patrol is adequately staffed.

While conservative lawmakers are pleased with the decision to bolster border security, many believe that the measure is not aggressive enough.

Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.), who proposed sending in at least 6,000 additional National Guard troops, said Obama’s proposal is "simply not enough" to control the violence in the area.

Meanwhile, Rick Nelson, a domestic security expert at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, told The New York Times that the additional deployment and funding will not make a significant impact.

"This is a symbolic gesture," he said. "At the end of the day, the face of border security is still going to be Customs and Border Protection, the law enforcement community. It’s not going to be the National Guard"

    First, is this another Obummer theory, or is he going to FINALLY defend the border? Second, WHEN will this happen? Third, will the NG troops be rotated back from Iraq or Afghanistan to do this job? Fourth, is this yet another case of too little too late?
    As long as Obummer is allowed to pick and choose what’s important and what’s not, I’ll believe Obummer’s it when I see it. This is the same mouth-flapping ‘wizard’ who promised to bring our military BACK HOME.
    When you say something and you don’t act on it, that makes you a LIAR. When you act on something when it ‘feels good,’ that makes you a worthless politician.
    Do your job, Obummer. You’ve already had several masks ripped off. How many more are left?

    • Claire

      s c—Obama sent them because he more or less was “forced” to with all the dissent in America concerning illegals. As far as I am concerned this is just another grandstand play. However, it remains to be seen. Will the troops actually be able to defend themselves and our borders or will they be told not to use weaponry? If our soldiers are not allowed to use weaponry to defend themselves this will be a appalling situation. If this happens, we as Americans must really raise hell. Do you know if our soldiers can return gunfire? There are illegals that have guns and I bet they would use them.
      To me, this illegal business should be taken care of now.
      Oh, I remember during the campaign, our troops would be brought back home in 17 months. We need to get out of these countries and take care of our troops and our business here at home.
      Oh yes, I agree with you on your post. Politicians should never make promises they cannot keep. The sad thing is they do it all the time.

      • jo

        I understand he did send the troops, but he sent the soldiers with no guns !!!

        How horrible !!!!!

        • refuse2lose

          Why do you think he did that?Because his buddy in Mexico told him he didn’t want our troops enforcing immigration laws.I guess they are there to do some sight-seeing,maybe a little landscaping.

          • Claire

            I have not heard if the troops are armed or not. If they are NOT armed then as far as I am concerned this is the straw that broke the camel’s back. Illegals have guns, and to send our troops unarmed is to commit an unpardonable act.
            Why is this administration kowtowing to Mexico? Calderone? He is another con-artist. Why is this administration setting up America to be weak? I am not a pushover and I despise the fact we are being led down this path. Talk about a bunch of limp-wristed idiots. If this administration does not have the guts and backbone to stand up for America and all Americans, then this administration should get the heck out of DC. All of them.

        • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Horace M. Everett

          Jo, that is what I have heard also. As far as it being official, I have not seen nor heard anything. Unarmed soldiers can’t stop anything. I did hear that the Senate voted down sending 6000 more troops to the border to help the 1200 already being sent. As soon as word gets out that they aren’t armed, we need to melt the wires to Washington, screaming at our Senators and Congressmen.

          • Claire

            Horace M. Everett: Agreed.

          • http://?? Joe H.

            Any troop that gets harmed in any way should be able to sue the federal government for sending them in unarmed when the government KNOWS they are facing an enemy that is well armed and willing to use said arms as well! This is flat out STUPID!!!

        • http://PersonLibertyDigest Dee

          What country is obama trying to save–The United States of America or
          They should send troops to the border armed with guns. You can bet your fanny that these illegals trying to sneak into our country will shoot them.
          I am so disgusted with the way this government is going and that is straight to hell. obama shoved the so called health care down our throats, next will be cap and trade(tax) and amnesty.
          In 1986, the government said, no MORE amnesty. Ha, that a big laugh, you can’t believe anything the government says.
          They want to give these illegals amnesty, so they can sign them up as dumocrats, thus insuring that the dumocrats will be in power forever.
          God help us if this happens.

        • judith schimmelpfennig

          Well they can’t be armed Jo, they will sue if illegals are shot. What has our country come to? We have representatives that enact laws, but all we need is to enforce the laws already on the book. The Feds don’t have the stomach for it.

      • uSNpops

        Read what it says! They willl be National Guard troops, with desk jobs, not actually “Boots on the Ground”. We need to get serious about the Illegal immigrants in this country. But it’s the same thing with Immigration as the Health care bill.

        The Majority of Americans were, and still are, against the Health care bill. But the people in Washington think they know better, and we are stuck with their Bankrupting bill that will ruin the country in the future. After all we sent them to DC, so we must want what they give us.

        And now it will be Amnesty for Illegals, where the majority of Americans want the laws in place to be enforced. Once again who are we that live in the country that we can question the intelligent and elite in Washington DC.

        Welcome to Serfdom Folks. We;re not smart enough to know what we need to survive.

      • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Horace M. Everett

        Claire, I am afraid that you are right. President Obama was backed into a corner and sent a token number of troops to the border so he can say he did all he could. This is his way of trying to say he has met the demands of the voters while he gracefully backs out and washes his hands of the whole deal. We haven’t had a President yet that has wanted to do a thing about the border and the illegal immigrant issue. It seems as though they think if they bury their heads in the sand, the problem will go away. The 1200 troops he sent is not even a start at correcting the problem on the border. It looks like the only way we will get this problem corrected is to clean out Congress and the White House and then put people in that will listen to the voters. Each of the border states needs to do like Arizona. When they pass a state law that says exactly the same as the federal law, then they can start cleaning up the mess. Washington has no intention of dealing with the problem.

        • Claire

          Horace M. Everett: And you are right in what you have said. We have not had any elected president/administration willing to deal with this problem. And since the Senate voted down the possibility of more than 1200 troops (unarmed?), that tells me something too. This tells me the Republicans do not want to do anything about the illegals, they are just like the Democrats on this issue. They are thinking of the upcoming elections. The White House and the Congress are using stall tactics on this issue. They blame each other and yet they are all guilty of doing nothing!
          The Republicans do not want the Democrats to succeed at anything and vice versa. It is a cache 22 situation. I do not have much “use” for either party. You have to admit both parties are not giving their complete attention to the issues at hand. They are wasting their brains (do they have any?) on getting “their” party in office. It is as simple as that.

          • http://aol wayne a

            claire,i’m not so sure.historically hispanics tend to vote if obama can pull off his wish of granting amnesty and citizenship who do you think most of the 15-20 million illegals will vote for? obama for a 2nd term.GOD HELP US!

          • Claire

            wayne a — You are right. The Hispanics do vote Democratic. I am totally against amnesty. I tried to point out that the Republicans did not get rid of the illegals either. Neither party got rid of the illegals and now it is a nightmare. Now I worry that amnesty WIll be granted and if so, Obama will be re-elected. Yes, God help us.

      • 45caliber

        NONE of the soldiers will be allowed to actually guard the border. They are supposed to fill out paperwork, monitor any cameras that might watch the border, etc. But they will not be on the border and will not have weapons. Lot of help, huh?

        Considering our border, if we did put them on the border they could only have one man about every three or four miles anyway. Not much use there at all.

      • judith schimmelpfennig

        I agree with you about corruption in our state/federal government, but I think term limits should be enacted. Career politicians should not be tolerated. These people are only concerned about their next term in office, a far cry from public servants. They end up acting in their own best interest not what’s best for us. schim

    • shasta

      i think Barry is getting scaired one of these Gringo’s might make his way to the whitehouse!!

    • Harold Olsen

      According to a story I heard on FNC the other day, the troops being sent to the border are just for show. They are unarmed and their orders are to do nothing. According to the White House, they are to support the Border Patrol. But, in reality, they are just supposed to sit on their thumbs and if they see any illegals trying to come across they are to pretend they don’t see them. All this does is give Obama another means of wasting tax money while accomplishing nothing!!

      • JC

        All he’s done is add a layer of bureacracy to help tie up the people who actually “are” tring to do something. Our so called President is still working against Arizona, but he’s trying to “look good” doing it.

        • Elaine in Texas

          I agree JC, our president is an expert liar. Everyday that he is in
          power he manages to do HARM to our AMERICA which he hates and wants
          to end. His goal is to destroy all that the founding fathers fought
          for. He is a radical socialist who was not even born here. In my
          opinion, a liar, an impostor, and evil man through and true. He does
          not love AMERICA nor does he belief in GOD. Protecting the borders is
          not what he wants, he wants to tear down AMERICA and open borders is
          one easy way of doing it. All of his agenda since in power has been to
          bring down AMERICA. First American president to not attend church, yet seen in Islamic gestures or meditation. Not American, not Christian, not honest, no disclosure about his birth certificate, school and college records, contributions to his campaign, friends and close associates of dark and communist idiologies and more.
          All in all, the most dangerous president our country has EVER had.
          GOD help America we are in the worst of times. Pray, pray without

    • LK Parker

      He allows a foreign President to degrade our country in front of congress, and then those dummies stand up and applaud. Everytime he opens his mouth he spews “non-truth, and panders to those he feels will feed his ego and “mission”. 1200 troops with no guns and desk jobs….that’s alot of help to those on the border who are being invaded! Right now he’s simply working on amnesty FOR THOSE IN THIS COUNTRY ILLEGALLY and getting the votes of those who benefit from this. To get rid of him and his elitist ideas start by GOING GREEN: RECYCLE CONGRESS IN NOVEMBER 2010!

    • Jim

      Hey Americans….The reason that “illegal” in the White House is only sending 1200 National Guard troops is so that gives him more of your tax dollars , so he can throw more elegant dinners and concerts for his Mexican buddy.

    • bob hubscher

      What took Odumbdumb so long to figure this out. This could’t be election propaganda could it? But don’t be shocked that McCain has already said it is to little to late. On top of that “the gang that can not shoot straight” will find more ways screw this up just like everything else they have attempted. Who does he think he is fooling? Oh I forgot his surrogates and the main stream press.

  • Jim H.

    The Guard won’t be armed and is there to do support work.They won’t be making any arrests. It’s just WINDOW DRESSING. At the tax payers cost. More wasted time and money to try to fool the public.

  • HFlashman

    The answer is plain and simple. We shouldn’t criticize and harass those who are here for simply doing what we preach day in and day out…”Get a Job”.

    Why should we criticize that drive?

    What we should be asking is why the media and the politicians don’t go after the employers …those Americans who are breaking the law AND encouraging their workers to break the law?

    Anyone who knows, or should have known, they were employing illegal immigrant workers should spend 30 days in the County clink. Nothing serious…30 days should be enough of a social stigma and uncomfortable factor to deter all but the most flagrant determined criminal employer. When the spouse has to explain a 30 day absence, when the company employees ask where the boss is, when the social stigma takes effect…

    No jobs, no reason to be here.

    Now ask yourself. Why isn’t the media, the politicians, the tea partieers, the left…why isn’t anyone targeting the real criminals in this issue? Not the poor slob looking for a job….but those Americans who actively violate the law and are getting a free pass…the employers of illegal alien workers.

    • ruelle

      right on…

    • CJ

      HF, you’re looking at the fractional gain and discounting the major cost. I may want to fix a leak in my roof, but I don’t burn the house down to achieve it. Your ideas will cost MORE to fix the problem. Where are you going to get the money?

      The “simple” answer can be achieved through basic economic concepts. Take away the encentive!! Don’t force behavior with laws when they can’t be enforced. People will not comply when there is little chance of getting caught, let alone paying for it, because the “opportunity cost” is less. The relitave few who are ACTUALLY working bring a mass of trouble that cost more than the benefit of the cheap labor. If we take away the unearned benefits and entitlements that are being given, most will go back. Just look at how it’s reduced since our economy has fallen. THAT’S how simple… and LESS EXPENSIVE it can be!

      • Ted Crawford

        There are yet other major groups that must be addressed here. They are the ones who help these illegals obtain documents,through false means, and then vigorously enroll them in all the social programs possible in an effort to over whelm our systems!
        I’m reffering,of course to acorn(now affordable housing corporation of America)or A.H.C.A.,move-on-dot-org,organizing for America, etc. As we saw from the video busts, they are very good at “relabeling” illegal activites,IE prostitution by illegal,underage immigrants as something innocuous, like entertainment!! Once in the system it is very difficult to ferret them out!

      • http://?? Joe H.

    • Al Sieber

    • http://aol wayne a

      hflashman,the only problem you’re going to have with punishing the employer is there are so many fake and stolen ID’s how is the employer going to know? the gov. could set up a system for verification but of course obama will never back it!

      • http://?? Joe H.

        there already is one. It’s called E-verify! the gov keeps trying to do away with it. instead it keeps getting extended year by year and not made permanent!!

  • Marilyn

    From what I understand the 1200 men will not exactly be on the border, what ever that means. Iam still trying to get past the idea that Oboma had to be badgered to wear the American flag on his lapel, but he readily wore the braclet of the the Mexican immigrants. Where does he really stand?

  • Sandy S

    According to Congressman Ted Poe (see youtube) these National Guard soldiers will be stationed 20 miles inside our border. They will be working on computers. Obama is still doing nothing and he never will. He wants illegals here to have baby Democrats and to continue plunging our country into bankruptcy and socialism. I hope enough Americans will stop playing video games long enough to realize what is going on in time to VOTE IN NOVEMBER. Otherwise the feds will only let you play the games they approve. Then you might decide to vote?

    • s c

      Sandy S, most rational, responsible people know Obummer can’t be trusted to make decisions (or act like a president). He is a fourth-rate magician whose arrogance and airhead incompetence know no bounds.
      What was true ages ago is still true. Never send a conceited, non-leader boywonder to do a leader’s job. NEVER elect him. And NEVER re-elect him or his hobag ‘friends.’

      • CJ

        Your point is right, for most RATIONAL and RESPONSIBLE PEOPLE… But a lot of time has passed since social ideals have been assimulated into our society, and people have become conditioned to expect, let alone demand, them (are you ready to give up SOCIAL security?), not realizing the true cost to the country. So the basis for making RATIONAL and RESPONSIBLE DECISIONS has changed, and therefor truly rational and responsible people are hard to come by, who will STAND UP aginst the socially greedy tidal wave who demand (unearned) entitlements. We have a hard fight still to go!

        • Al Sieber

          I agree!!!

        • Ted Crawford

          CJ, How do you consider Social Security as an “unearned entitlement”? We, in the private sector, have payed into this system for our entire working life, 48 years in my case! There is nothing unearned about it! The problem is the unpayed “loans” the various administrations have taken out without paying back!
          It was designed as an insurance policy, payed into in the expectation that it would pay off if,and when needed!

  • Robert Augeri

    What they need along the border is people from other states willing to give their time but a place to live temporarily. They must be armed so if the drug cartel wants to take them on they can defend themselves against illegal drug coming in and terrorist coming across our borders. They should arm the National guard and let them use force if necessary. The Mexican government has already used force against the Border Patrol. When the heck are we going to wake up. Obama sent troops only for political reasons. If he really wanted to stop illegals and drugs and terrorist ect. coming across he would have sent a minium of 6000 troops as MCCAIN requested.

    • CJ

      Good idea to “let” them use force, but are those doing the guarding willing to use it? With the current wave of lawyers filing suite against soldiers’ acts in Iraq and Afganastan, do you really think someone will actually use force? The illegals know they won’t, and will take advantage of that. So, letting them use force may not be the answer. The NG troops don’t want to go through the trouble to answer some left-wing liberal’s claim of “excessive force” even if it was justified. Take away the chance of having a suite filed, and maybe it will work.

      • http://aol wayne a

        i’ll go and you bet your ass i’ll use force when needed.where do you sign up?

  • Colo43

    obummer should be made to walk the stretch of the border, with the 1200 hes “Promised” and see how fast his can runs for cover.

    The number of 1200 is ridicules and he knows it.
    And to be unarmed, even more cynical and outright stupid.

    For Him to even consider such nonsense shows hes not as intelligent as he would like for us to believe.
    Sure Glad i am not a believer in Obummer!

  • Carolyn

    One only has to live next to the border as i do too see what is really going on. These illegals are very aggresive, some have weapons. They are not all coming here for work the word has been out for many years once you get here life is free, WELFARE . How would you like to work all your life, retire and are affraid to go out at night as they come out at night from the brush and start moving north too Phoenix. I have too keep all the doors locked even during the day , not what i expected too do at my age.

    • Al Sieber

      Carolyn, I know what you’re talking about, I live in Ariz. too, along a smuggling route it can get scary at times.and they’re not all coming here for work that’s a crock. they don’t want to become Americans, they want to displace us and create their own society. and all the Nat. Guard will do is fix flats and direct traffic. vote them all out in Nov. I’m beginning to think voting doesn’t count any more.

      • rwnut

        Al Sieber….Don’t lose hope now. We’ve been kicking them out of office left and right.Being from Arizona ,you should be screaming to defeat that traitor John(Teddy)McCain and elect J.D.Hayworth. Get angry and get to the polls.

        • Al Sieber

          Thanks rnut, I know i’m not alone.


    Forget about the oil spill this is the most important job that needs to be done and a lousy 1200 unarmed extra manpower will not do it. deploy 30,000 armed national guard troops from all states to do the job right. And I believe you should swear in another 40,000 bounty hunters(returning veterans from both wars would have the option to be immedeiatly employed) to weed out these illegals and send them back to mexico(don’t like it there(Mexico) have a revolution like we did 234 years ago and take control, or vote the corrupt politicians out like we will be doing in november). Enough is enough when 12 Americans a day die at the hands of illegals nationwide. Where are the female groups who need to see the amount of rapes that are commited by illegals here. They are not here to give or contribute to this country( hell, they will not even take the time to learn english) they are here to TAKE and get whatever freebie they can qualify for. Time to wake up from this nightmare America before it is too late. NO MATTER HOW MUCH THE MEDIA AND OBAMA ADMINISTRATION SPINS IT NO MATTER HOW MUCH THEY SUGAR COAT IT. SETTLE FOR NO LESS THEN TOTAL DEPORTATION. THIS IS NOT RACIST IT IS JUSTICE. YOU BREAK THE LAW YOU GET FINED OR IMPRISIONED WHAT MAKES THEM ABOVE THE LAW?

  • Christopher Baker

    They don’t accept regular emails any longer, not since about a month after BO took office. But you can express your opinion and make suggestions as I have done for quite some time now. Tell him he’s a liar and point out to him that if he says he’s going to do something we know he means he won’t do it or will do it in such a manner that it makes no difference. Tell him that we know if he says he isn’t going to do something that we know he is going to do it regardless of what the people want or need and regardless of the damage it does to the country we love. Give him hell, or at least a little preview.

  • http://CoxCommunications Wayne

    Does anybody remember the Berlin Wall or the Iron Curtain? IF our politicians were serious about securing our boarders (north and souyh) they would build an iron curtain on both of our boarders. When I was in the U.S.Army I was stationed in w West Germany in the Stuttgart area. I had the opportutiny to tour the “wall.” If memory serves me correctly there was a “no man’s land” between East and West Germany. It was patorled by guards with dogs. There were guard towers all along the fence with two guards each.I think they were spaced about 100 meters apart from each other. And for gfood measure machine guns were mounted on the fence facing each other at various heights. They had you covered. This is what we should do!!!!!!!!!!! To hell with the ACLU and anybody else who thinks these are extreme measures.

    • Harold Olsen

      I agree. We need a wall, such as an electrified fence that none of them would dare to go near. While they’re at it, make an electrified dead zone as well.

    • CJ

      Wayne, understandable ideal, but it didn’t work (where is it now?)… And it cost more than the local governemt could pay (you weren’t paid by Germany were you?). Who will the US ask for help? Plus, the guards were allowed to shoot-to-kill with no questions asked. Would we allow that?

      Simply take away the economic benefit! That’s all it takes. We don’t pay them, and they stop coming. Eliminate entitlements. It’s that easy.

      By the way, thank you for your service!

      • CJ

        OH, and by the way, it was the SOCIALIST EAST GERMANS who were doing most of the shooting of those who wanted out. I don’t think anybody from the west tried to get in.

      • http://CoxCommunications Wayne

        CJ, Stopping the entitlements is good, but first you need to stop the flood. What better way than to plug the hole? The reason I believe the wall collasped is because the U.S.A. out spent the U.S.S.R. and their communist backed economy couldn’t take it. I also understand it would take a boat load of money to construct a wall or effective fench that actually functioned as advertised, plus it would need to be manned. What is the National Guard for? Use them and for Gods sake arm them and let them put their training to good use!

    • JC

      Were Canadians our enemies then? As near as I can tell they aren’t and haven’t been since they declared themselves autonomous.
      I think we need just the one wall.

    Please forgive the typo’s. I’m just more than a little P.O.

  • http://charter howe

    I look at this failed opportunity by President Obama as chance to protect our nation, not just Arizona. I wrote the following letter but they were ignored. The audacity of this President to pander to the Mexicans at the peril of our nation should be an impeachable offense and I hope you all will insure Obama is a one term President. This is what I wrote and my reasoning:
    howe says:
    Mr. President; Please do your job and secure the borders before my family is harmed by the drug cartels and criminals coming across the border of Texas. Its obvious that your adminisration does not want to have closed borders but in a dangerous world what choice do we have. 50 years ago I could sleep with my windows open at night. Today, people need everything at their disposal to protect themselves and their loved ones. Your character assasination of Arizona’s elected leaders was very evil and contemptable for someone who was elected to uphold the Constitution and the laws of the land. In spite of an overwhelmng majority of U.S. Citizens advising you to send military to the border, you sent 20% of the requested number of unarmed soldiers who will provide administrative duties only at the border. Why would you have unarmed soldiers at the border knowing that the drug cartels could at any time fire upon them at will with no consequence. Those people are killers and do not value life.
    President Obama, Al Sharpton and the other liberals who are fanning the fires of racism concerning the AZ law are doing a huge disservice to the country and the patriots of this great land that expect the Constitution and the rule of law to be upheld. While these arrogant leaders are busy doing the devils work, Bin Laden is sending his boys over in droves to infiltrate and assimilate into American society. These Al Qaeda sleepers are plotting to take down buildings, destroy our transportation system, our airplanes and our electrical grid. They are also wanting to smuggle nukes or dirty bombs into our country so they can eradicate entire cities with each weapon. Does this take rocket scientist thought to figure out. Who is misguided? Read HB 1070 as I have and I defy any of you to find anything about racial profiling. What a weak talking point to use that has unintended serious consquences. The AZ people are trying to stop drugs, murder rape and massive increases in criminal activity. WE THE PEOPLE in Texas are trying to protect ourselves likewise.

      Howe, you could not of said it better!! An excellent response to the need to secure our country’s southern border. Also,your comments are right on about the weak miplaced leadership of Muslin Obama who’s pandering to foreign countries is a priority over being Leader and Commander in Chief of the greatest nation on earth the United States of America. I beleive Obama is using America for his own personal wants to degrade America to make himself look more powerful to the muslin world stage. To get our country back to the Constitution of the United States with Goverment by the people for the people we must get Muslin Obama out asap.

      Heard RUSH say today on the radio that 2,000 Americans are killed each
      year by “Illigal Immigrants, mostly from Mexico” Shocking!!! The media does not report this. I support Arizona’s actions, Texas should do the same. Every American who has not been to the
      GRAND CANYON yet should go there this summer. It is one of the seven
      wonders of the world and rightly so. To me, it is like GOD
      yelling, “SEE WHAT I CAN DO”.. I can’t wait to return, was there last
      summer, fantastic, beautiful, words can’t express its effect on the soul and spirit. God bless Arizona!
      God bless America, but we better start deserving that blessing by
      returning to God’s will for us, the big “10″. No shortcuts, follow the Ten Commandments and read the Bible everyday.

  • Marilyn

    Wayne, don’t worry about the typo’s. We get it. This is just a thought:Every branch of armed forces has Military Police. They are highly trained. Suppose we put them on the border and warn the Mexicans that if they keep coming we will give one warning shot and then shoot to kill. The Mexicans do have a plan to become the leaders of this country by numbers alone. According to La Raza and I quote: “Americans will have to recon with us when we fill the Goverment with our people.” Whoever does not belive that that is a plan is a fool.

      What our Nazi-in-chief should do is bring our troops from Europe and let them fend for themselves and put them on the border to do what they should be doing and defend our country from invaders. Obama has taken an oath to defend this country. However, he took it on the Bible, which means nothing to him since he is a Muslim. And, anyway, why should he care about defending this country? He isn’t even a citizen.

    This action is much like what happened when the National Guard was federalized (activated) during the riots of 1968. We were put out on the streets with weapons,but were not given ammunition. The rioters knew this and we,very quickly,became,jokingly ineffective. We were taunted, pelted with debris, and even shot at and all we could do was duck and run. When the troops from the regular Army arrived with their guns and issued ammunition most of that stopped because the rioters did not know who had, or didn’t have, ammunition. The regular Army had orders to retaliate we did not. Now, the difference here is, the drug lords and their armies have weapons that range from hand guns to fully automatic weapons as well as small explosives. They will not hesitate to kill. In fact they have killed, and are still killing, Mexican police, the regular Mexican soldiers, as well as U.S. DEA agents. Why would Obama think that they won’t do the same to our police and, unarmed, national Guard personnel? This, in my opinion, is just another Obama “dog and pony show” because he has been embarrassed by the new Arizona law and has not been ridiculed and pressured into taking some kind of action. An ineffective action leads to a disastrous reaction.

    • 45caliber

      I had some friends in the military during that time of riots. The police, National Guard, etc. had orders to do nothing to stop the rioters UNLESS THEY WERE HARMING SOMEONE. The military had orders to restore order by any means necessary. They did.

      Several police decided to arrest some of the soldiers for enforcing the law. When they saw all the guns the military had pointed at them, they decided that they would prefer to watch the rioters instead.

      All U.S. American Citizens are expecting much too much from Obama. Our Expectations and hopes that Obama will be politically persuaded, coerced, intimidated or politically embarrassed enough to actually honor his sworn public oath, his sworn public obligations and his sworn public duties to always faithfully uphold, protect, defend, preserve and ENFORCE ALL U.S. Federal Immigration Laws everywhere at all times and of course also the entire Constitution everywhere at all times WILL NEVER EVER HAPPEN because Obama has absolutely NO intentions of ever faithfully and seriously ENFORCING any U.S. Federal Immigration Laws at any time EXCEPT ONLY A FEW TOKEN GESTURES TO TRY AND FOOL AND TRICK AND DECEIVE AND BRAIN WASH the entire U.S. American Citizen Tax Payer Public. Obama has only the intentions to try and pass and grant a general AMNESTY for all ILLEGAL ALIENS to become future Democrat voters and to utilize the born and yet to be born ANCHOR BABY OFFSPRING of all ILLEGAL ALIENS and future general AMNESTY Legalized ILLEGAL ALIENS for even more Democrat voters to outnumber and to outvote all English Speaking White “Gringo” Middle Class Loyal Patriotic Pro-Constitution Anti-ILLEGAL immigration Right Wing Traditional Conservative U.S. American Citizens to the status of Second Class American Citizens in our own country who will be forever subjugated, forever enslaved and forever ruled by and forever at the mercy of the Multi-Cuturalist Multi-Ethnicist Extreme Leftist Ultra Liberal Socialists, Marxists and Communists Elitists who will totally dominate, control and “RULE” over all of us and over what ever there is left of a Leftist Ultra Liberal Tower Of Babel Multi-Lingual Multi-Cultural Anti-American Culture Anti-American Constitution Third World Banana Republic Of The United Socialist States Of America. So, unless we Loyal Patriotic Pro-Constitution Law U.S. American Citizen Voters can outnumber and outvote both the foreign national ILLEGAL ALIEN invader enemies and their ANCHOR BABIES who both breed more than rabbits and flies and outnumber and outvote the domestic enemies of our Constitutional Republic in all National elections, State elections, County elections, City elections, Town elections and Local elections, then possibly our ONLY other future alternative may ultimately be to stand our ground, lock and load and fight for our God Given Rights As Ordained And Granted Under The Constitution of the Constitutional Republic Of The United States Of America which was all created for all U.S. American Citizens by the Founding Fathers who had to fight for their God Given Rights against a very similar enemy. Sorry to be so gloomy. Unfortunately Obama and his Criminal Gang of Mob Rule and the entire corrupt and criminal Democrat controlled criminal U.S. Federal Government is just not a viable part of the equation to solve any problems and to save our nation from destruction.

      • BrotherPatriot

        Wow. Well said, Gary. However, from what I have read so far up to this point (haven’t see comments further down list), no one has mentioned the true equation. NWO. Bilderbergs, North American Union…etc, etc, etc. All of this…all of it is just symtoms of the bigger picture. The Bilderbergs goal is a one world corporation who will decide for us what we all will do. Basically, the bulk of humanity will serve the corporate elite. They intend to make us their cattle. Please google up the following suggested search words…Parliament Bilderberg, Daniel Estulin, Zeitgeist movies (2 of them…watch Addendum if your to religious to stomach the truth of “the movie”) and 9/11 architecs/engineers request independent investigation for demolition theory of the twin towers(<—Sign the petition!). Start connecting the dots people. I'm an Ex Navy SEAL and 40 years old…I feel like I'm just waking up. In the book, The Art of War, Sun Tzu says to dived and conquer. Guess what people…the only explanation to describe Obamma (Barry)'s agenda is exactly that…he is fracturing us to fight amongst ourselves…and doing a damn good job of it. I can not tell you how dissapointed in our "elected leaders" I am…and how discusted that none of the main stream media have yet to truthfully investigate the Bilderbergs and who's strings they are pulling. The world is indeed Waking up…educated yourselves America to the truth. It's to bad we have to go outside our Country to hear the truth. Were at War people…WW3 has already begun and it's called the silent war. A war upon our minds for ultimate control of humanity. I have faith that it's not to late. We have very intelligent, educated people aware of what's happening that work for us in the government. Unfortunately, the other half of the goverment (people in the same departments even) working against them at the same time. Good luck, guyz. Yol Bolsun…!

  • http://gmail i41

    I work with a National Guard commander,who was down on the border,for three months building the fence. He was telling anyone that would listen,while they were building, Mexicans were gathering and getting reaady to head over the border. They were gathering in the bushes, in bunches of 50 or more. When it got to be around 4 o’clock,the other Guard units would start packing up to leave, he said they figured on going until dark,to get as much done as possible. That is until they started taking live fire. He said they had the windows and tires shot out while people were working. He also said mexicans can shoot all day at us ,but Sate Dpartment paper chasing idoits, will not allow them to carry or have in their posession bullets, you could carry extra weight with a empty rifle and a empty pistol, but no bullets. Our federal representivise are a farce. The biggest thing that made Mike mad,was this is an agresssive act against the USA. We should just go after these drug pedaling thugs and waste them. Of course Omoron’s buds and him wouldn’t get their cut of of drugs.

    • 45caliber

      When a Marine some years ago did shoot back at a Mexican shooting at him and several friends, the government tried him in a military court. He was found innocent. Then they decided to try him in a civil court – where he was again found innocent. Then they decided to try him in a Federal court on civil rights violations – and was again found innocent. He was tried three times for the same offense.

      But the government wanted to find him guilty to make Mexico feel better about their man being killed.

      The main reason he was found innocent at the Federal level? He was of Mexican descent but was American.

    Illegal immigration is a CAUSE and EFFECT situation.



    Too many people want to deal with the effect and ignore the cause. If all you treat is the effect you will never solve the problem.

    The cause can be eliminated easily:

    1. Require all businesses to use E-Verify to ensure their employees are legal workers.

    2. Require proof of citizenship for any welfare type be it housing, food, etc.

    3. Pass HR 1848 in congress that would require at least one person be a citizens of the USA for a baby born here be deemed a US citizen.

    If you do the above the large illegal aliens will self deport when they can no longert take advantage of th3e system.

    4. Build the fence as was originally proposed being double lined.

    5. Get a private company to setup VISIT USA to deal with people that overstay their visas and are 40% of the illegal alien population.

    • Meteorlady

      I think your post is good however…..

      A lot of cities are “sanctuary cities” and they don’t care about verifying jobs and resident status. They will give these people anything they want because they “deserve it and need help”. I worked at Immigration some years back and illegals have very sophisticated papers to prove they belong here. I can also bet that they have all the rent receipts and other documentation they need to claim amnesty should it come to that again. In 1986 of the 2 million that entered this country, 86% were admitted fraudulently because we did not have enough people to properly process and check the facts presented. Of the 2 million that were admitted, 1.1 million more came because they were family members. 10 years later of those 3.1 million or more, 76% were still on social service programs.

      As for the border fence, they were building bridges across it and driving light delivery trucks over the top exactly one week after a section in Texas as built. The fence is taking private land from ranchers and ranchers are putting up with illegals trespassing, killing their animals and their families, and stealing from their homes. They are smuggling drugs, weapons and terrorists across our borders. Meanwhile you and I have to take our shoes off at the airport.

      As for anchor babies – they are here because of the ambiguous wording in the 14th Amendment which was meant to protect the citizenship of slaves returning to southern states after the civil war. All the bleeding heart liberals like the ACLU have taken this to court even though the “intent” of the 14th Amendment was not to grant citizenship to non-citizens born in this country of non-citizens. That Amendment was NEVER intended to be used in such a manner.

      As for overstaying visas – I worked in Investigations and we found probably 10% of the people we were looking for. Most come here and disappear – they get new identities through identity theft and head straight for the welfare offices or the nearest hospital emergency room to get their free medical.

    As for the fact, that ranch land being taken to build a fence, which was stopped by the democrats and Omoron. As a rancher, good tight fences make good neighbors. We just had a rancher get shot by an other rancher, for not keeping his side of the fence in repair and letting his livestock run wild. The same damn thing is happening with the USA and Mexico. Omoron, if he was any kind of a leader, or was proud of the USA. He would have beat Caldrona like a pinata, and thrown the bastard out of the white house. But when Omoron is dark part of a chichen doodle spot, what can we expect. The land down on the border is pretty unproducive, and with illegals coming in, I sure would not have a problem giving access to build a fence. The land needed isn’t as wide as a highway land needed strip, that goes through farm ground. It is just something to bitch about. Or the government can take the land and give to someone else as the Supreme Court ruled. And now with the two dykie dorks that will soon be seated on the Supreme Court the USA will see even worse rulings!

    I have said it before that we will lose our country because of this. when we have 30 million illegal aliens here now and in 5 years we will have 60 mill more illegal aliens totaling 90 mill total, could that be enough to overrun our southen border states. I think so and because obama hates america (he will not go to the unknown soldier on memorill day) he will just stand there and say good luck to the states that will then be part of Mexico. think it cant happen then look up checkosolvika 1938. we need to oust all the politicians who will not promise to vote to uphold our laws on illegal aliens and deport them immeadiatly. and we need to stand behind arizona and their law. if not you are part of the problem.

  • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Randy

    This isn’t a ‘Symbolic Gesture’, its an outright deceit perpetrated on the American people in order to stall for time to get the ‘Amnesty Bill’ passed in Congress to give the 20 million plus, illegal aliens citizenship and the right to vote before the November elections, so the Democrats can hopefully save some of their seats in Congress they are expected to lose for not voting the way the majority of their constituents wanted them to. These fools are not only ignorant to the wishes of their constituents but also to what is happening in these border states that they refuse to enforce our immigration laws in. California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and Florida as well as the sanctuary cities across the U.S. are being taken over by these illegal aliens that call themselves Latinos or Mexicans. When they do so the Anglos are pushed out and the public offices are filled by these Latinos and the governments are then taken over by them. These are not assimilated Americans but are revolutionary Latinos who keep pushing the Anglos out and further north. Just look at Florida from Lake Okechobee south, all of southern California from Los Angeles south, and all the border towns of Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona. The local governments of these places are now controlled by the Latinos and Mexicans and no Anglos can get elected there anymore. In the last twenty years this has been progressing one small step after another, but when this new ‘Amnesty Bill’ passes it will become one large leap for the Latinos. The Anglos whenever in power, the majority of the Anglos, have always tried to treat the minorities sympathetically and humanely. When the latinos and Mexicans take power, we only have to look at Central America, South America, and Cuba to see how the new minority of the Anglos will be treated, and the treatment of the Negros is even worst. I am not a racist just because to explain the problem I have to use these terms, but I beleive in assimulation, not invasion. Any fool can look at what is and has gone on and can tell what is really happening here, and when whole areas of our country are being taken over by one group and driving out the rest, it is not assimulation. Just ask the people in the sanctuary cities across the nation what is happening, you won’t like their answer. It is truly ironic that when Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid push this ‘Amnesty Bill’ through Congress, against the will of the American people, they will be assuring that none of their grandchildren, or descendants there after, will ever be elected to public office again. When Mr. Obama signs it into law, he will be discarding all the civil rights in the future that the Negros have gained to this day. Think this is BS, then look at the civil rights records of all countries in this hemisphere south of Canada and the USA. No, not a ‘Symbolic Gesture’, but the deceit of destruction for the USA.

    I have seen much abuse of USA kindness to individuals that do not salute the flag, do not speak english, do not believe in proper housing regulations (house down the street was raided and had 31 individuals in an 1200 sq ft home),and do not believe in birth control (Illegal aliens having babies just so they can stay).

      The Border Patrol is manned with some pretty fine folks trying to do an impossible job with limited resources and support from the top. They are outmanned and outgunned, but still bust their hump every day to try and get the job done.

      It is not the Border Patrol people that are the problem, its their bosses, all the way to the top.

      Shortly after the election of Obama and his assignning of people to ICE and Homeland security an event occured here in Washington. A raid was made on a Meat Packing Plant and about 40-50 Illegals were captured, and detained. They were to be deported, and the owner of the plant was to be fined. But the word came down from the new head of the ICE that the raid was not authorized, and all charges were dropped, and the ICE folks here were chastised. Since then there have been no raids, and to my knowledge the plant is still running with the same people working there.

    2. 95% of warrants for murder in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens.
    3. 75% of people on the most wanted list in Los Angeles are illegal aliens.

      I have little against these immigrants who are legal or illegal. There are numerous problems with our immigration laws and I do support having more accountability at border crossings. You Snopes article was an important piece of information on how American women have to pay for something that immigrants get free. If the USA needs temporary workers then we should ony allow Males to enter and then they can send money home to support their families.That’s the way it use to be. Better yet,only allow single males in and only for a two year term. If they apply for citizenship then the family must stay in their home country until he achieves that citizenship. There are many ways to make it fair and honest.

    you are absol
    utely right.

    the sad part of all this is the fact we have 42+% of the U.S. population who supports everything barry is doing. the majority of democrats back him because he is democrat and have little concern about his lack of patriotism, mostly because they are sympathetic to socialism.
    i believe this invasion of illegals is exactly what obama and the demo’s want, not only for the votes, but the destruction of our republic as it now stands. this is the change barry was promising and the college students were chanting “yes we can” our education system
    has accomplished its mission. we have lost a lot of our cities to the
    illegals, california is practically annexed to mexico, arizona has
    the courage to fight back and you can see what barry is doing, not to
    help them, but, doing everything he can to deny them the right to
    defend themselves.
    this coming november will be the pivoting point, if the conservatives lose, it’s all over. you either start flying the hammer and sickle or get your gun out.

    so if we lose the election next time around (november) and fail to get a majority in the house, you better start practising the communist salute, thats where barry is heading.

    if you think for one minute that we have a majority of people that well vote out these communist in our congress, think again. then we will have to fight the revolution all over again.

    I’ve been looking at all of Obama’s moves from a motive standpoint. I’m no longer asking why he’s doing or not doing, but rather how do his actions play a part in his grand master scheme. He’s doing it on purpose. I truly believe in the citizens of this country. We WILL put an end to this cherade. I believe that BHObama and his entourage will eventually be forced to step aside.

    I believe that the majority of Americans are beginning to see the “spins” and turning them back to see the truth. The Mexican people have a long road ahead of them. I believe that while President Calderon is successfully fighting against the kidnappings et al in his country and he may demonstrate his abilities as president in important areas; he has NO rights to pass judgements on our country. He’s aligning himself with the wrong US president. As I see it, Calderone will be needing our help taking on his huge endeavor which will take many years…more years than Obama has to offer. The “progressives” can spin it any way they’d like, but the reality is that “The sleeping giant has awakened”. We’re beginning to take back our country with all the might of our God gifted brains.

  • Marilyn

    By the way just as an edition the are no plans to legalize any other Nationalities.The institutions I spoke of also said we are over crowded already and thereby cannot afford anyone else should this massive legalization take place. And as another addition we deported 10,000,000 Mexicans in the seventies. So don’t let them say it cant be done.

    WHY do you people WASTE YOUR TIME writing on these blogs where obama or his staff don’t see your true feelings?????

    If everyone that writes something here would simply go to:

    and flood the hell out of the Whitehouse email system with how you feel, at least you could be assured that someone on the inside would see your message.

    OK, they still probably won’t do anything, but just the fact that your are at least sending your message to the right spot, is a start. Writing your message HERE does NOTHING!!

    • Steve

      We do write to our ignorant mutts in congress. I fire off copies of emails several times a week. I will usually send them all the same letter 15 or 20 times so I can be sure that they might have read at least part of it once, and then write a new batch for the next month. Many times I have even copied some of the better posts on here and sent them to congress also. Even though they don’t read them completely through, the interns do a quick scan through them to sort the pros from the cons on the different issues, and tabulate the numbers so they can get an idea of which issues they have support on and which ones they don’t. They are just looking to satisfy the greatest number of voters so they can get re-elected, and like you say we need to flood their inboxes and not let up!

      Here is Pelosis email for anyone who doesn’t have it.

    Oh, and you want immigration to work, this is what you do…..

    If anyone doesn’t have papers stating that they are here legally, then you through them in a truck, bus or rail car and move then directly to the border and back to where they came from.

    NO MORE I want a lawyer,
    NO MORE waiting 6 months for a trial or judge,
    NO MORE free meals while they try legally manipulate the system,
    NO MORE anchor babies [you take the child and put into the DHS system and send the parents back south - no questions asked].

    If you think just this last act above wouldn’t stop most of the illegal immigration, then you’re dead wrong!!

    What parent would want they child ripped from their arms and separated for at least 10 years. [As it is snow, anybody caught in the U.S. illegally has to wait 5 or more years before they can apply LEGALLY to get into the U.S., and that's just apply, it doesn't mean they will get in!!!]

    WE need to get TOUGH on illegal immigration, and if we do, it WILL STOP, or least slow to a trickle, not like the damn flood it is now!!

    From the L. A. Times

    1. 40% of all workers in L. A. County ( L. A. County has 10.2 million people) are working for cash and not paying taxes.

    This is because they are predominantly illegal immigrants working without a green card.
    2. 95% of warrants for murder in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens.
    3. 75% of people on the most wanted list in Los Angeles are illegal aliens.
    4. Over 2/3 of all births in Los Angeles County are to illegal alien Mexicans on Medi-Cal, whose births were paid for by taxpayers.
    5. Nearly 35% of all inmates in California detention centers are Mexican nationals here illegally.
    6. Over 300,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles County are living in garages.
    7… The FBI reports half of all gang members in Los Angeles are most likely illegal aliens from south of the border.
    8 Nearly 60% of all occupants of HUD properties are illegal.
    9. 21 radio stations in L. A. are Spanish speaking.
    10. In L.. A. County 5.1 million people speak English, 3.9 million speak Spanish.. (There are 10.2 million people in L. A. County .)

    (All 10 of the above facts were published in the Los Angeles Times)

    Less than 2% of illegal aliens are picking our crops, but 29% are on welfare. Over 70% of the United States ‘ annual population growth (and over 90% of California , Florida , and New York ) results from immigration. 29% of inmates in federal prisons are illegal aliens.

    We are fools for letting this continue


    [] This is only one State…………..

    If this doesn’t open your eyes nothing will, and you wonder why Nancy Pelosi wants them to become voters!

  • Marilyn

    Kerry, you are right of course. But, frankly there is nothing I have written here that I have not written or called the Congressmen and Senators about and got the “We understand.” pat answer. Including the ten mil. Nancy Pelosi gave to the illegals for Lawyers, especially since Rush Limbaugh verified what I had read that 2000 murders of innocent Americans per year (*not connected to the drug cartell) have been committed.

  • bobinpa.

    This is just more of this Kenyan Nationals Phoney BS. 1200 National Guard troops is NOT ENOUGH. It’s a waste of time and money even sending them. It’s just more of the same old crap that this Progressive Marxist administration puts out. LIE and DECEIVE.

    Brandy40 and Marilyn, I keep calling and emailing them, also I try and go to any place they have a meeting. They are avoiding the citizens and will have to surface in public sooner or later. I compared the gutless wonders will just have to appear, just like a sub, have patience and keep asking their office for schedules. I got to attend one meeting, with a senator, who tried the duck and dodge and talk in circles, after we started asking for reasons for voting in such a socialist way, he suddenly had a meeting to attend. After a few calls to next meeting group gathering, the senator was a no show. Of course the government media will not report it. There will be another day, just don’t back down or think you are alone. Both parties know there is fire in the air and it is coming at all of Congress. Omoron’s staff will show themselves some where in the nation, for a fact finding bull session. Of course it will be durning working people hours, you may have to take off work for time, which is part of being a citizen concerned with our country’s direction!

      So right you are! my congressman knows me by name when he sees me at any hometown meetings, now! At present count, I have sent him at least 100 e-mails and at least 50 actual letters and I ALWAYS check the box that says I expect an answer. I have actually gotten seven answers that were from him! I have talked to him in person at least 20 times.

  • Steve

    Mr O’Dummer is just posturing. He can’t let a state Governor show him up. Well it’s too late. Governor Jan Brewer, and the Arizona legislature have already stepped up with SB1070 and O’Liars pathetic attempt at saving face is the only thing about his presidency that IS ACTUALLY “TRANSPARENT”!
    Everybody can see that this is just his knee jerk reaction to try and pretend that he gives a damn. He doesn’t! 1,200 troops is not enough. If he really wanted to solve the problem, he would send 8,000 to 10,000 troops and really make a genuine effort to stop the illegals, but he doesn’t really want this. His hand was just forced by Governor Brewer.
    O’Liars feeble ploy will fade into the background, and the illegals will continue flooding over our southern border, and he, and Pelosi, and Reid will continue to try and give all the illegal aliens that are already here amnesty, because they want their votes.

    Here is the link to Arizona Governor Jan Brewers website. Sign her support petition, so she can show obama and his minions that the majority of American citizens support Arizonas’ SB1070 and enforcement of our borders. Even if you have signed all the other petitions, you need to sign THIS one.

    • rwnut

    • Claire

      Steve–And I just signed it.

      • Steve

        Thanks Claire. Keep in mind that they have now fixed the petition site so all your family can now sign from one computer or email addy.

        • rwnut

          Steve…You need to sign THIS one. One good turn deserves another,I say. Thanking YOU in advance.

          • Steve

            Done and done. My family and I signed that petition last week and we forwarded the link to all on our email lists. I found that link over on the CCRKBA page where Airangel had posted it.
            Thanks for signing the close the border petition rwnut. I’m surprised there were only 107,990 sigs the last time I checked. With 150-170 million conservatives in the U.S. I thought it would be higher by now.

        • Claire

          Steve–I gotcha!

  • Marilyn

    hey Steve, thanks, I just signed the petition. I have signed many others. I have an idea, I don’t know how good it is but here goes. Suppose we get as many people as we can that have had family members or friends that suffered rapes and murders, have them put the pictures on signs along with the names of the killers to show what has happened to many Americans from the Mexicans. We should also read the names of the deceased like a memorial at these events. If that doesw not bother our leaders, nothing will.

    • rwnut

      Marilyn…Thought you might be interested in a monthly newspaper that tells you a the killings and destruction by illegal aliens that even “fair and square” O’reilly refuses to tell you.


    • Steve

      Thanks for signing the petition.

      I think that’s a GREAT IDEA for the anti-immigration and anti-amnesty marches and protests, and also for counter protests every time the illegals start waving their Mexican flags on American soil.
      As far as doing this at the TEA Parties, I don’t know how the organizers would feel about it. They might see it as a separate issue and be worried that it would dilute their main message of Taxed Enough Already. I know their message has expanded a bit from the original over the last year, and it might be ok with them, I just don’t know.
      I would ask some of the organizers of the next one that you attend, and see what their thinking is, or email them on their web site and ask.

      To Joe H. and others that have had problems with Arizona Governor Jan Brewers petition site, when more than one family member was trying to sign from one computer or IP address: They have it fixed now.
      Today, 4 of us were able to sign her support petition from one computer addy/email/I.P.
      Last check there were only 107,991 signatures. Not very many considering there are about 150-175 million conservative Americans in this country. Maybe we need to circulate the link to our email lists again, and be sure to mention that all family members can sign it from one pc now.

      • http://?? Joe H.

        Just out of couriosity, I checked and there was 109,288 on it!

        • Steve

          That’s good, Joe. Things are looking up. Maybe now that the site is fixed, and extended families can all sign from one computer, the numbers will rise faster.

          I was thinking if we could tell all the illegal aliens that it is a site for signing up for welfare and food stamps, that would sure get the numbers up. Whadda ya think? ;-)

          • http://?? Joe H.

            Excellent Idea!!! 30 million more signatures overnight, if it doesn’t burn up first!!!

  • Marilyn

    I got a little ahead of myself. I meant for these people to march with the tea parties or any march against immigration.

  • Joseph R Carreiro Sr

    We know from the lips of President Obama “I am against the Arizona Immigration Law”. Why should he help the Governor and Senators McCain and Kyle close the Border of Mexico. These people that live on the front lines in the Mexican crisis should well know better than Obama on what needs to be done now.If Obama lived in Arizona day after day then maybe his thinking would be more rational. If the Federal Government keeps putting this crisis off then it is on their backs,the additional blood that will be spilled on the soil of Arizona. The worst elements of Mexico have to be stopped as to entering our State. 1200 National Guard without weapons will not even begin to do the job. Washington knows this and so does Arizona. Then why make the gesture?

    • rwnut

      Joseph R Carreiro Sr…Because it makes an estimated 20,000,000 illegal aliens love him.

  • eddie47d

    First of all we did have 6,000 troops on the border about 5-6 years ago. They did little good and cost a bundle. Then they were sent home. So why would another 6,000 do any better or (1,200)? The assistant Police Chief of Nogales,Az. says crime has been steady but less than 10 years ago. The same for Yuma and Douglas so it’s kind of a wash for many border cities. Clarence Dupnik Sheriff of Pima County Az. said that national newspaper reports don’t jive with reality. That this border talk is a media created event and that the border is secure in his area. Same with Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever. He says the problems are on the other side of the border and not in his part of Az. He says violent crime rates are down. Even in El Paso Tx. the residents say the city is safe. Even though there were more than 5,000 murders just across the border in Juarez,Mex. None of that violence has spilled over in their city and the residents have said there are way too many Federal Police and wish most would go home. Now some cities like Phoenix the problems have gotten worse. I live in a large city in the West and have seen no problems with illegals except for an occasional raid on a meat packing plant. Some say groups like F.A. I.R. are stoking the fires just to gain members. So any crime get’s blown out of porportion. In a neighboring city (suburb) a resident made an illegal u-turn 2 yrs. ago and an illegal ran into her vehicle. This crash caused the illegal to run over a curb and he killed 2 people. He got life without parole because the media hyped it up so much. Nothing was said about the lady who caused the accident. So maybe there is alot of bias. I’m still for stronger enforcement at the border but want both sides to be alittle more honest about how they really feel about Mexicans.

    • Steve

      Hey eddie, I notice you CONVENIENTLY forgot to mention just how bad Phoenix has gotten. Phoenix now has the SECOND HIGHEST KIDNAPPING AND MURDER RATE IN THE WORLD. Mexico City is number one in the world.
      Do you see a connection here eddie?
      Mexico City is full of Criminal Mexicans
      Phoenix, Az is full of ILLEGAL ALIEN Criminal Mexicans

      Way to keep the liberal spin, and the smoke and mirrors going eddie.
      There are 10 sheriffs for every one that you listed that will tell you that they have a major problem with the illegal aliens (criminal Mexicans) committing crimes in their cities and towns, but as usual you are wanting us to look at your liberal slant by telling us that the border is secure in some areas.
      If there are any areas that “you” can call it secure, it is only because the illegals AREN’T USING THAT AREA TO CROSS because it is too far away, or too difficult due to terrain. You must think we are all really stupid.

      • eddie47d

        Steve dud, I never said the border was secure and I did mention Phoenix.The subject of Phoenix has been brought up before and more than once. Do you want me to write a book for you or weren’t you paying attention. I think you answered YOUR last statement.

        • Steve

          Ummm, yeah eddie47dud,
          In your sneaky liberal socialist way, you mention that Phoenix has gotten worse, and I said that. It’s the way you tried to gloss it over by not telling the WHOLE truth that is the problem.
          “Phoenix ranking Number 2 in the world for murder and kidnapping”, sounds a LOT DIFFERENT than “Phoenix has gotten worse” doesn’t it eddie?
          Not telling the WHOLE truth is as bad as lying to people eddie.
          People will never give you or your posts any credibility, if you continue telling half-truths and glossing over the facts.
          After all eddie isn’t that why you’re here? Aren’t you here to try to convince people that your point of view is the correct one? If people can see you spinning facts and leaving out whole truths, do you think they are going to believe anything else that you say?

    • Claire

      eddie47d–When are you going to understand that neither party wants to deal with this issue? When are you going to realize the Dems are only wanting to “protect” their voting block? To send 1200 troops down there unarmed and they are to protect our borders?? And the fact our troops will not even be “near” the border? What the hell? What is the purpose of sending troops if nothing is going to be accomplished? And you scream about the cost! This typical political maneuver is not productive and will be costly too. So what is the point of sending the troops? Be realistic–this is just another “ploy” to “keep” the Americans happy.
      Don’t you realize the illegals have guns too? And the illegals WILL shoot to kill. Where are your priorities? With the Mexicans or Americans? If it comes down to the nitty gritty–who will you support? And with the way things are going you just may have to make a choice. Who will you “side” with?
      I am tired of the inability of this administration and the past administrations that have looked the “other way” and pretended this issue was not happening. Are you happy that America is broke? Are you happy America has carried the brunt of this problem for years? Are you happy your tax dollars go towards taking care of these people? Mexico should be taking care of their own. Why should we be taking care of the illegals? I want this madness to stop-NOW. I want my tax dollars to go to America and the welfare of American people and our country.
      So go peddle your wares to someone else, not to me.

  • Marilyn

    I don’t know where you live, but I’ve got many friends on the border states. They live with lights on all around their house at night, alarm systems, bats by their beds, and rifles. Home invasions are high in their area. Also a few friends in the east where I live have lost family members at the hands of these people. So cut the B.S. story.,Now I will give you one of two-hundred examples as a counter to your story. Two illegals ran across the border, on the way they grabbed a 13yearold girl, dragged her into the desert and raped her over and over, then one held her down while the other put his heavy shoe on her neck until she choked to death.

    If illegals are raiding a meat packing plant why would you make light of that criminal behavior. It is also criminal behavior to enter this country without permission. California prisons are made up with 25% illegals. I think your thinking is selective because you want open borders and do not care anything about America. We are not just talking about a few illegals crossing our border. They are coming here by the millions. If you cannot see something wrong with that you do not have the best interest of America at heart.

    edyee,you give everyone the impression that you are 47 times dumber than a dandelion, first statement was, the 6,000 troops didn’t work as planned and was a waste, wrong nimrod. Where they were there were no crossings except on either side of them, for at least ten miles out. Second, the troops built as much fence as they could. They had only a few hours to work, because Mexicans were firing on them from Mexico, you simple minded democrat! Have you or any of you gutless wimps been down there with the troops, no you were with you queer steer buds in your blow dolls and beds. Your puke brained socialist democrat buddies will not let the troops return fire you sugar tit raised boob. Now Omoron is sending 1200 troops without ammo down there, this is not an easter egg hunt. Not one damn democrat or Onumnutt’s radical inner circle will give the cammand to shoot back if fired on. Edyee, you and your ilk are like the most of the socialist, freak faced, socialist communist, democrats. All are puke brained, simple minded, and just plain stupid organisms.

    Edyee, all those sheriffs supported Omoron and gave to his campaign, and all are as pee brained as you are. If a check on their backgrounds could be accomplished, there could be some pay offs of some kind. But to do a intel on a sheriff with ties to the drug lord lads around them, is a pretty intense undertaking. There are dirty sheriffs all over the country, just like there is more straight shooters and honest ones. But look at how Omoron and dems are always scamming and cutting deals with their criminal party minions!

  • chuck b


    eddie doesn’t think when he goes into his protect the illegals mode. i listened to that sheriff when he was interviewed on tv and the first thing that came to mind, this guy has to be on the take. one other thing yuma and douglas are not camping spote for these illegals so why would there be a problem there.
    is it possible eddie is an illegal?? he admitted to living in a big western city, could that be los angeles? millions of illegals live there, maybe tijuana!! lol

    Well, Mr. Obama is trying to pull off a miracle because his predecessor, George Bush could not stem the flow of criminal illegal invaders with 6000 troops over the two years that they were deployed.

    I smell gross failure before this even gets under way. An inferior defense always leads to a failure in modern warfare. And, folks, that is what this is, warfare. We are being invaded by criminal illegal invaders from the south. Not all are Mexican, though.

    The function of both the Army and the National Guard is to protect the United States of America from foreign invasion. Hello. We have an invasion in progress, folks. The police cannot handle this. It is not a police action. It is an invasion.

    Presidents Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, and several others have, in the past, rounded up illegal aliens and deported them, as a matter of national security. There has been much prescedent set in this area of the application of the law. It is not only wise, but, prudent to secure our borders from foreign invasion, both now, and, in the future.

    I am still waiting for the “Big O” to get off the golf course or the lecture circuit and do his job. He is not a “community organizer” any more. He is supposed to be the President of the United States of America. I sure would like to see him act like one, even if he is not actually, legally in office.

    It would not hurt his performance rating, which is currently in the toilet.

  • James A Graham

    I’ve never heard it put quite this way, but it sure makes sense.


    You have two families: “Joe Legal” and “Jose Illegal”. Both families have two parents, two children, and live in California .

    Joe Legal works in construction, has a Social Security Number and makes $25.00 per hour with taxes deducted.

    Jose Illegal also works in construction, has NO Social Security Number, and gets paid $15.00 cash per hour “under the table”.

    Ready? Now pay attention…

    Joe Legal: $25.00 per hour x 40 hours = $1000.00 per week, or $52,000.00 per year. Now take 30% away for state and federal tax; Joe Legal now has $31,231.00..

    Jose Illegal: $15.00 per hour x 40 hours = $600.00 per week, or $31,200.00 per year. Jose Illegal pays no taxes. Jose Illegal now has $31,200.00.

    Joe Legal pays medical and dental insurance with limited coverage for his family at $600.00 per month, or $7,200.00 per year. Joe Legal now has $24,031..00.

    Jose Illegal has full medical and dental coverage through the state and local clinics at a cost of $0.00 per year. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00.

    Joe Legal makes to o much money and is not eligible for food stamps or welfare. Joe Legal pays $500.00 per month for food, or $6,000.00 per year. Joe Legal now has $18,031.00.

    Jose Illegal has no documented income and is eligible for food stamps and welfare. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00.

    Joe Legal pays rent of $1,200.00 per month, or $14,400.00 per year. Joe Legal now has $9,631.00.

    Jose Illegal receives a $500.00 per month federal rent subsidy. Jose Illegal pays out that $500.00 per month, or $6,000.00 per year. Jose Illegal still has $ 31,200.00.

    Joe Legal pays $200.00 per month, or $2,400.00 for insurance. Joe Legal now has $7,231.00.

    Jose Illegal says, “We don’t need no stinkin’ insurance!” and still has $31,200.00.

    Joe Legal has to make his $7,231.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline, etc.

    Jose Illegal has to make his $31,200.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline, and what he sends out of the country every month.

    Joe Legal now works overtime on Saturdays or gets a part time job after work.

    Jose Illegal has nights and weekends off to enjoy with his family.

    Joe Legal’s and Jose Illegal’s children both attend the same school. Joe Legal pays for his children’s lunches while Jose Illegal’s children get a government sponsored lunch. Jose Illegal’s children have an after school ESL program. Joe Legal’s children go home.

    Joe Legal and Jose Illegal both enjoy the same police and fire services, but Joe paid for them and Jose did not pay.

    Do you get it, now?

    If you vote for or support any politician that supports illegal aliens….

    You are part of the problem!

    It’s WAY PAST time to take a stand for America and Americans!

    What are you waiting for? Pass it on.

    Question: “What does the Bible say about illegal immigration?”

    Answer: Romans 13:1-7 makes it abundantly clear that God expects us to obey the laws of the government. The only exception to this is when a law of the government forces you to disobey a command of God (Acts 5:29). Illegal immigration is the breaking of a governmental law. There is nothing in Scripture that contradicts a nation having immigration laws. Therefore, it is a sin, rebellion against God, to illegally enter into another country.

    Illegal immigration is definitely a controversial issue in the United States (and some other countries) today. Some argue that the immigration laws are unfair, unjust, and even discriminatory — giving individuals justification to immigrate illegally. However, Romans 13:1-7 does not give any permission to violate a law just because it is unjust. Again, the issue is not the fairness of a law. The only biblical reason to violate a governmental law is if that law violates God’s Word. When Paul wrote the Book of Romans, he was under the authority of the Roman Empire, led by perhaps the most evil of all the Roman emperors, Nero. Under that reign, there were many laws that were unfair, unjust, and/or blatantly evil. Still, Paul instructed Christians to submit to the government.

    Are the immigration laws of the United States unfair or unjust? Some think so, but that is not the issue. All developed countries in the world have immigration laws, some more strict that the USA and some less strict than the USA. There is nothing in the Bible to prohibit a country from having completely open borders, or to have completely closed borders. Romans 13:1-7 also gives the government the authority to punish lawbreakers. Whether the punishment is imprisonment and/or deportation, or even something more severe, it is within the rights of the government to determine.

    The vast majority of illegal immigrants in the United States have come for the purpose of having a better life, providing for their families, and escaping from poverty. These are good goals and motivations. However, it is not biblical to violate a law to achieve something “good.” Caring for the poor, orphans, and widows is something the Bible commands us to do (Galatians 2:10; James 1:27; 2:2-15). However, the biblical fact that we are to care for the misfortunate does not mean we should violate the law in doing so. Supporting, enabling, and/or encouraging illegal immigration is, therefore, also a violation of God’s Word. Those seeking to immigrate to another country should always obey the immigration laws of that country. While this may cause delays and frustrations, these reasons do not give a person the right to violate a law.

    What is the biblical solution to illegal immigration? Simple…don’t do it; obey the laws. If disobedience is not a biblical option, what can be done in regards to an unjust immgration law? It is completely within the rights of citizens to seek to change immigration laws. If it is your conviction that an immigration law is unjust, do everything that is legally within your power to get the law changed: pray, petition, vote, peacefully protest, etc. As Christians, we should be the first to seek to change any law that is unjust. At the same time, we are also to demonstrate our submission to God by obeying the government He has placed in authority over us.

    “Be subject for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme, or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do evil and to praise those who do good. For this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people. Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God” (1 Peter 2:13–16).

    Dear James, many thanks for explaining, and so much better than I have why it is so important to take a stand against illegal immigration. i have pointed out that they couldn’t possibly sent home millions of dollars, pay taxes, and pay rent, food etc. on a small salary. Then I tried to explain that even God believed in the law of the lands, as a set of rules is as much a part of our lives on a daily bases as air, food and water. Thank you again.

  • Marilyn

    I just read something that would interest you. If this don’t put a fire in your belly nothing will. The OBoma administration teamed up with the U.S.Chamber of Commerce in urging the supreme court to stop states from opening up illegal-alien-filled jobs for unemployed Americans. Needless to say this administration will be hearing from me in no-uncertain terms.

    I love the Mexican President’s comments about this: “If they stop the flow of guns to Mexico it is okay but only if they don’t stop any Mexicans from going North.”

    • Sandra

      NONE of Calderons speech made any sense to anyone, except for Odummer and other leftist leaning anti-Constitutionalists.
      The man is an idiot, and his irrational thinking gives a clear picture of why Mexico is the way it is.
      His solution for fixing Mexicos problems is to send ALL his criminals, and illegal aliens, to the U.S. so they become “our” problem.

  • Meteorlady

    For all the liberals out there here’s a good thing for you to do:


    Would You Leave Your Doors Open?
    Editor, Times-Dispatch: I had an economics professor who suggested a good
    technique for evaluating large decisions, such as those made by businesses
    and governments: Simply reduce the scope of the problem to your household,
    your world, your own mini-economy, and ask, “What would I do?” If it makes
    sense on a small scale, it probably makes sense on a larger scale.

    So, if you’re opposed to stopping illegal immigration, apply those beliefs
    to your own home. Would you do the same thing you want our country to do?

    When you go home tonight, take all the doors and locks off your house. Allow
    anyone who desires a better life to enter your home at will. You are
    forbidden to ask where they are from, how long they plan on staying, or what
    they are going to do while they’re in your home. You are not allowed to
    determine if they have a criminal record in their home country.

    You may never ask to see any form of identification, as that would be racial
    profiling. While they are in your home you will be financially responsible
    for them. You will pay for their food, health care, and education.

    Should anyone happen to give birth while in your home you will be
    financially responsible for that child for its entire life, even if the
    parents were only in your home for a few days. Of course, while they live in
    your home, the ones who work will send a majority of their money back to
    their own country. I could go on, but you get the picture.

    The U.S.A. is our home. Should we leave it wide open or should we open the
    doors only after we find out who’s knocking?

    Rod Edwards.

    • Steve

      An excellent analogy, but probably too deep for the liberals to understand.

  • Rob Alexander

    Obama’s just trying to get the egg off his face since Arizona made their own enforcement policy for AZ LEOs to do the incompetent federal government’s job for them.

    Trying to fool the people by sending unarmed Nat’l Guardsmen no less… I heard they were not going to be doing any “real” enforcement work, just providing backoffice support for the Border Patrol.

  • wayne

    I’d be willing to bet good money that at least some of these troops are there as a threat – against Governor Brewer. The Soros plan does NOT tolerate dissent.

    There are at least some of them that have been placed with the intent to remove her and the state government in the advent that they go much further in opposing Sorosian policies that are intended as a stealth sovereignty transfer from US government to super-national/UN control.

    The plan all along has been to break down US borders, over-ride US laws, and by hook-and-crook to eliminate legislative control both locally and nationally in favor of bureaucracies that operate under the aegis of the UN and the World Court.

    Our own courts and legislatures are already increasingly becoming appendices to bureaucratic rule and it is only a matter of a very few years – maybe even months until we find ourselves regulated, redistributed, socially just-iced, and finally enslaved to a global socialist state bent on avenging “past injustices” and promoting societal equality in all things and rigidly enforced loyalty to the superstate.

    • http://?? Joe H.

      That would be the biggest mistake of his career! The people of Arizona would be in an up-roar so bad it couldn’t be stopped without blood shed!

      • Steve

        I agree Joe. It would also be Odumbos “LAST mistake”.. I agree with most all of Waynes post, but if O’Liar moved against Governor Brewer and Arizona, then Texas and Montana would secede, Texas would send troops to protect Arizona, patriots in all the western and southern states would band together and rebel, it would be one big can of whoop ass that Obama couldn’t ever get the lid back on, and even though he’s not too bright, I think he would see that move as a big ass mistake. He would never regain control and I think he knows that…

  • EHeassler

    Obama is a magician. The troops are the distraction. It’s what he’s doing with the other hand that we must watch. What he’s doing with the other hand is virtually nothing. He stipulated that the window dressing 1200 troops are not to be used for apprehending illegals but to provide intelligence. Excuse me, but I think that AZ has all the intelligence it needs with respect to illegal immigration! What the state really needs is protection vis-a-vis having the border secured. 1200 butt-sitting troops is a cruel joke and such an obious political ploy that even dullest citizen sees through it. This move is much like his reaction to the oil spill in the Gulf; he’s doing something to show that the Federal Government is acting while in fact, it is reacting weakly to events that it let get out of control. Unfortunately, this fits “The One’s” agenda to a tee. After all, no crisis can be allowed to go to waste. I’m waiting to see just how much more government red tape, regulation, and consolidation of power within the Executive Branch of the Federal Gov’t result from these latest events.

  • Edward

    Dear Glen,

    This is the most powerful answer/solution to the illegal immigrant problem. Thank God that Arizona had the guts to tackle the problem that the Feds wouldn’t try to help;

    I also sent this e-mail to Glen Beck, hoping he would air it.

    Dear Glen<

    Love your show. This is an e-mail that a friend sent to me. It's something that the meatheads in Washington probably wouldn't bother to read. Seems they don't really read anything these days. It is the most logical explanation/solution to the illegal immigration problem that we face in this nation that I have heard to date.

    I wish you would read it, research its validity, and perhaps explain it on your show to the American people.

    We really need someone to make our politicians listen to what their constituents really want their representatives to do on very important issues that we face today. Especially dealing with Obama and his one-way leadership shenanigans and backroom deals.

    This is a very important issue, I hope someone will bring it to Glen's attention, and perhaps he will use these statements on his show, and show how tax money could be saved if implemented. Also these measures would put a lot of Americans back to work. If the illegal immigrants left our states, businesses would have to pay Americans a decent wage and put an awful lot of our citizens back to work.

    Thank you,
    Ed Curtis

    Subject: Fw: What IF 20 Million Illegals Vamoosed? Then What?

    PLEASE READ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Tina Griego, journalist for the Denver Rocky Mountain News wrote a column titled, "Mexican visitor's lament" –

    She interviewed Mexican journalist Evangelina Hernandez while visiting
    Denver last week. Hernandez said,
    "They (illegal aliens) pay rent, buy groceries, buy clothes…what happens
    to your country's economy if 20 million people go away?"

    That's a good question – it deserves an answer. Over 80 percent of Americans
    demand secured borders and illegal migration stopped. But what would happen
    if all 20 million or more vacated America? The answers may surprise you!
    In California , if 3.5 million illegal aliens moved back to Mexico , it would
    leave an extra $10.2 billion to spend on overloaded school systems,
    bankrupted hospitals and overrun prisons. It would leave highways cleaner,
    safer and less congested. Everyone could understand one another as English
    became the dominate language again.

    In Colorado, 500,000 illegal migrants, plus their 300,000 kids and
    grand-kids – would move back "home," mostly to Mexico . That would save
    Coloradans an estimated $2 billion (other experts say $7 BIL) annually in
    taxes that pay for schooling, medical, social-services and incarceration
    costs. It means 12,000 gang members would vanish out of Denver alone.

    Colorado would save more than $20 million in prison costs, and the terror
    that those 7,300 alien criminals set upon local citizens. Denver Officer Don
    Young and hundreds of Colorado victims would not have suffered death,
    accidents, rapes and other crimes by illegals.

    Denver Public Schools would not suffer a 67 percent drop out/flunk out rate
    via thousands of illegal alien students speaking 41 different languages. At
    least 200,000 vehicles would vanish from our gridlocked cities in Colorado .
    Denver 's four percent unemployment rate would vanish as our working poor
    would gain jobs at a living wage.

    In Florida , 1.5 million illegals would return the Sunshine State back to
    America , the rule of law and English.

    In Chicago , Illinois , 2.1 million illegals would free up hospitals, schools,
    prisons and highways for a safer, cleaner and more crime-free experience.

    If 20 million illegal aliens returned "home":

    If 20 million illegal aliens returned "home," the U.S. economy would return
    to the rule of law. Employers would hire legal American citizens at a living
    wage. Everyone would pay their fair share of taxes because they wouldn't be
    working off the books. That would result in a n additional $401 billion in
    IRS income taxes collected annually, and an equal amount for local state and
    city coffers.

    No more push '1' for Spanish or '2' for English. No more confusion in
    American schools that now must contend with over 100 languages that degrade
    the educational system for American kids. Our overcrowded schools would lose
    more than two million illegal alien kids at a cost of billions in ESL and
    free breakfasts and lunches.

    We would lose 500,000 illegal criminal alien inmates at a cost of more than
    $1.6 billion annually. That includes 15,000 MS-13 gang members who
    distribute $130 billion in drugs annually would vacate our country. In
    cities like L.A, 20,000 members of the "18th Street Gang" would vanish from
    our nation. No more Mexican forgery gangs for ID theft from Americans! No
    more foreign rapists and child molesters!

    Losing more than 20 million people would clear up our crowded highways and
    gri dlock. Cleaner air and less drinking and driving American deaths by
    illegal aliens!

    Drain on America 's economy; taxpayers harmed, employers get rich:

    Over $80 billion annually wouldn't return to their home countries by cash
    transfers. Illegal migrants earned half that money untaxed, which further
    drains America 's economy – which currently suffers an $8.7 trillion debt.

    At least 400,000 anchor babies would not be born in our country, costing us
    $109 billion per year per cycle. At least 86 hospitals in California ,
    Georgia and Florida would still be operating instead of being bankrupted out
    of existence because illegals pay nothing via the EMTOLA Act. Americans
    wouldn't suffer thousands of TB and hepatitis cases rampant in our
    country-brought in by illegals unscreened at our borders.

    Our cities would see 20 million less people driving, polluting and grid
    locking our cities. It would also put the "progressives" on the horns of a
    dilemma; illegal aliens and their families cause 11 percent of our
    greenhouse gases.

    Over one million of Mexico's poorest citizens now live inside and along our
    border from Brownsville , Texas to San Diego , California in what the New York
    Times called, "colonias" or new neighborhoods. Trouble is, those living
    areas resemble Bombay and Calcutta where grinding poverty, filth, diseases,
    drugs, crimes, no sanitation and worse. They live without sewage, clean
    water, streets, electricity, roads or any kind of sanitation. The New York
    Times reported them to be America 's new " Third World " inside our own
    country. Within 20 years, at their current growth rate, they expect 20
    million residents of those colonias. (I've seen them personally in Texas and
    Arizona ; it's sickening beyond anything you can imagine.) By enforcing our
    laws, we could repatriate them back to Mexico .

    High integrity, ethical invitation:

    We invite 20 million aliens to go home, fix their own countries and/or make
    a better life in Mexico . We invite a million people into our country legally
    more than all other countries combined annually. We cannot and must not
    allow anarchy at our borders, more anarchy within our borders and growing
    lawlessness at every level in our nation.

    It's time to stand up for our country, our culture, our civilization and our
    way of life.

    This is for all the liberals that want illegals here, and also want amnesty for them. How do you answer to this you liberal buttwipes?


    Illegal alien burns elderly woman alive, gets life
    after ‘sadistic’ murder

    Posted: November 24, 2009
    8:28 pm Eastern

    By Chelsea Schilling
    © 2010 WorldNetDaily

    Ramon Alvarado

    Editor’s note: The contents of this story are graphic in nature.

    An illegal alien has been sentenced to life in prison for breaking into an 83-year-old woman’s home, grabbing her by the throat, smashing her head into furniture, saturating her with gasoline and setting her body on fire while she was still alive – all to cover up his check-fraud scam after she hired him to cut her lawn.

    Ramon Alvarado, 33, and his cousin, Jose Alvarado, 37, were hired to do yard work for Lila Meizel at her home in Wheaton, Md. They worked for the woman for two years, and Meizel often gave the men soda, food and extra tips.

    Jose’s wife, Ana Rodas, 33, was also arrested in connection with the murder that took place the day before Thanksgiving last year. Ramon was convicted of murder, arson and conspiracy in October. On Monday, he was sentenced to two consecutive life terms – one without parole – plus an additional 30 years for arson.

    A Montgomery County jail official confirmed that all three were illegal aliens. According to reports, they are from El Salvador and have lived in the United States for more than 10 years. The Gaithersburg Gazette reported Immigration and Customs Enforcement had detainers on all three defendants, flagging them for possible federal charges and deportation proceedings.

    According to prosecutors, Meizel gave the men a $75 check for landscaping work. Jose added two zeros to the number, agreeing to give his cousin $1,200 and Rodas $1,000. They used the $7,500 to buy a car, computer and clothes. Ramon and Jose pre-emptively conspired to kill Meizel when the two believed they might be caught.

    Firefighters found Meizel in her burning home and pulled her outside, but they were unable to resuscitate her. A firefighter and two police officers sustained injuries in the blaze.

    Both Ramon and Jose Alvarado had previous criminal records in Montgomery County. Jose had a history of check fraud, according to the Washington Examiner. Ramon had a warrant out for his arrest for driving a car without a license or registration. Rodas had no criminal history.

    Montgomery’s top prosecutor called the murder case the most horrific he has seen since taking office, according to the Washington Post.

    An autopsy revealed Ramon caused Meizel to suffer a brain hemorrhage and fractured seven of her ribs. She had soot in her lungs and burned tissue in the back of her throat, indicators that she was alive when he set her on fire. Most of her body was charred and her face was unrecognizable.

    “The inhumane manner you chose to exterminate a lady well into the autumn years of her life strongly suggests that you are sadistic,” Montgomery County Circuit Court Judge Terrence J. McGann told Ramon Alvarado. “A civilized society demands that you be in prison for the remainder of your life.”

    During Ramon’s trial, Judge McGann said he could not look at the autopsy photos “very long without gagging.”

    “I’m going to put these in the envelope so they don’t turn anyone else’s stomach,” he said.

    According to the report, Ramon Alvarado spoke only about his concern for his mother.

    “I am thinking about what my mother is going to think of me after I get sentenced,” he said through an interpreter. “I’m concerned about my mother. When she finds out what happens to me, she can get quite ill.”

    Jose Alvarado pleaded guilty to first-degree murder on June 3 and faces up to life in prison. Rodas pleaded guilty June 3 to accessory after the fact and faces up to five years in prison.

    “I lost my head,” Jose Alvarado told the Washington Post, speaking from a pay phone last year inside the Montgomery County jail. “I don’t know what to say. It just happened suddenly. I was tempted by demons.”

    Meizel’s daughter described her mother as “a very trusting woman,” saying she was satisfied with Ramon’s services.

    “When it came to hiring people for her lawn, she was happy with this man,” she said.

    “May God forgive me for what I did,” Ramon Alvarado reportedly told police shortly after the murder.

    Just after Meizel’s murder last year, WND reported another case where an illegal alien fatally beat a 64-year-old woman who gave him a home. In December, Julio Cesar Ramos – who had been deported more than a dozen times – was charged with first-degree murder after allegedly beating Paulette Locklear to death when she took him in, built a small house on her property for him, gave him work and treated him like family.
    She called 9-1-1 just before being beaten to death with a blunt object.



  • V. C. Russell

    We all KNOW why Obama wants to grant amnesty to all the illegal immigrants…it means even more votes the next go’round. The ONLY reason he’s making noise about pumping $$$$ into stopping the ‘flow’ is because enough people complaining about the loose borders are making enough noise that Finally they are beginning to be heard. Where’s THIS money coming from…oh, he’ll just print more. (it’s just a monopoly game to him.) God Bless Arizona…although I am concerned about in the future having to produce ‘papers’(License) to police unless I am in some traffic violation.

  • bargal

    I am so glad I am not in the service having to serve under this dunderhead What a stupid no knowledge ignorant arrogant idiot.

  • BrotherPatriot

    I left a comment above however I feel it’s my patriotic duty to make sure as many people are aware of the true root of the problem is. Please google up…Parliament Bilderbergs, 9/11 independent investigation by architects/engineers (sign that petition), and finally if your bold enough to watch both movies of Zeitgeist then google that up also. This is more than enough to get you started. Check out American Free Press, Jim Tucker, Alex jones, and mike savage and use their search engine for Bilderbergs. Time to take them down people. There is an awakening happening right now and its not to late to pull this all back from them. Do your own research and connect the dots…then stand back & see what picture is before you. Don’t be afraid to speak your voice.

  • Eagle

    There is one thing that we all may be overlooking here, and that is the evidnce that it is not only those of Hispanic origen that are crossing our southern borders in large numbers, but people who’s appearance is not too much unlike that of Mexicans or Central Americans.

    There have been numerous reports that “Non Spanish Speaking” people have been smuggled in with those who speak Spanish. If this is true, and these other individuals are tied to Al Queida, the infiltration by forieghn nationals takes on a whole new meaning, as does the Governments failure to correct the problem. Very serious indeed!!!
