Recovery funds to support Texas communities in the fight against illegal immigration

September 4, 2009 by  

Recovery funds to support Texas communities in the fight against illegal immigration Attorney General Eric Holder has said more than $4 million in Recovery Act funds will be devoted to combating crime and drug trafficking in Texas border communities.

The project is part of the Justice Department’s Southwest Border Strategy aimed at controlling the activity of Mexican drug cartels that are responsible for escalating violence on both sides of the border as well as drug addiction in these communities.

"The Recovery Act funding is helping to target these very real threats to our communities, boosting resources for local law enforcement and giving greater protections to our citizens," says Holder.

For example, the city of Arlington will receive nearly $1.1 million to hire law enforcement personnel and purchase equipment to intercept contraband and drug trafficking operations in the North Texas area.

President Obama has come under growing pressure to step up the efforts to remedy the illegal immigration problems. In particular, groups such as the Federation for American Immigration Reform have criticized the administration for insufficient commitment to E-Verify, after a recent Department of Homeland Security announcement that federal contractors would only be required to check the work authorization of new employees instead of all workers.

    Finding out about E-Verification, 287 G local police arrest , No-Match-Letters, 1986 Simpson/Mazzoli bill, and other immigration enforcement laws, the reader should GOOGLE–NUMBERSUSA and JUDICIAL WATCH? Here you will find the absolute truth and not the meandering propaganda addressed by the special interest lobbyists or the deceiving national press. We can burying the head in the proverbial sand, or do something to save your quality of life in our nation. E-Verify from the beginning has been demonized, and only bloggers like me brought its operation to gain national attention? IT WORKS! So without public outcry, the bill would have ended up in a dusty draw of the Senate. Now–these same people are out to crush 287 G, because it also works.

    Yet right now the usual suspects are requesting the Federal court delay the full implementation of E-verify for government contractors. I’m sure that pro-illegal immigrant lawmakers such as Sen Harry Reid, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Homeland Security chief Napolitano and many more, will try to use their influence on behalf of greedy businesses who demand cheap wage workers to join their slavery forces. After federal training local police have the authority to check a persons identity and detain them for ICE. President Obama is currently being pressured to rescind the no-match-letter. A immigration tool that notifies employers of discrepancies in a persons identity, for a right to be employed.

    Sen. Edward Kennedy R.I.P.was a major sponsor of the 1986 (IRCA) immigration act, that strengthened importation, allowing cheap labor into our country, including the fact he promised–NO MORE AMNESTIES. America has no chance of passing a worthwhile public option for health care, because we will also be paying for illegal aliens along with their families. The bill has no restriction in the wording to authenticate a persons legal status. Personally, I want a single payer system to stop the profiteering by insurance companies, but I don’t want to be taxed for underwriting illegal immigrants and their families? Even if they add an amendment declining illegal immigrants from the health care bill, they will still be included if the Democrats enact another path to citizenship?

    Then what about the others on the opposite side of our weak fence, they will hear the Amnesty bell chiming and rush for the border, or enter as tourists in an airport. I repeat we cannot even look after our own impoverished and homeless, even many veterans live under bridges. Pandering to foreign nationals legislators have ignored our aging infrastructure, our bridges, roads and tunnels. Call up the politicians you voted for at 202-224-3121 and tell them NO MORE AMNESTIES!. YES TO A PERMANENT E-VERIFY! BUILD THE ORIGINAL TWO-TIER FENCE! ENFORCE THE 1986 (IRCA) IMMIGRATION LAW THAT’S ON THE BOOKS. DON’T OVERPOPULATE AMERICA!

    • John

      You are completely on target, I wish their were more Americans that knew something about our past and that of the people in office. I recently found a book about America’s past it explains all of what is happening now and why most people dont really know what is going on in with the government. The Books name is ( The Truth in black and white ), I think every one that can read ENGLISH should read it.


    • http://donthaveone Beberoni

      Exactly. Ted Kennedy and the democrats love these guys so much they even give them our social security money that wont be around when its my turn to collect on the thousands that I have paid in. I wish I knew how it worked that the democrats can get illegal aliens to vote for them, because I thought it was illegal, but somehow they have managed just that. I guess its the same thing as all the dead people in Chicago that voted JFK into office in 1960. That shouldnt have happened but it did, and thats a fact the left cannot change.

  • eyeswideopen

    Why do you fail to state that the bill made it illegal to knowingly hire or recruit illegal immigrants ( immigrants who do not possess lawful work authorization) required employers to attest to their employees immigration status ?. You also fail to mention that Republican Senator Alan Simpson from Wyoming helped write the bill. Why must us Republican try and distort facts and information to try and make the Dem’s look bad? Truly unbelievable the depth of the hate in this country. Bin Laden is laughing at us now, he never has to make another strike, the Americans are eating each other alive. Give them some money problems and they will blame each other, and the party in power will never accept any responsibility for lacking fiscal control.

    • JeffH

      For the record, EWO only poses as a Republican…as all can see in the previous posts. EWO continues to blast Republicans/Conservatives under the guise of disenchantment and embarrasment of being a Republican. Call yourself what you are, not what you want others to think. No pity here.
      It has been law that all hires be verified with two types of government identification…the only problem was that fake ID’s could not be readily verified unless a government agency or the employer scrutined and verified the validity of the ID’s presented.

    • http://donthaveone Beberoni

      You are right about Bin Laden laughing, as are the Taliban and Al Quada and all the terrorists nations who also wanted the democrats to win. They are laughing aloud that the American people are so stupid as to vote for the very guys that want to sit down and have dinner and a glass of wine with them, instead of blowing them off the face of the earth. What you lefties just for some reason cannot seem to comprehend, is that this enemy, has stated over and over and in many many ways, it wants us dead, it will not quit until we are dead, and it will die trying to make us dead. And you want to sit down and talk with them. Gimme a break. They would as soon cut a liberal throat as a conservative throat, its doesnt matter to them. And you want to deal with them and talk. Get a life, and get in touch with reality. Thank God George Bush had the cahonas to finally strike back, after Bill Clinton let them punch us in the nose, over and over and over. There is no talking to these guys ok, understand. Do you have a grasp on reality yet? You cannot talk to or persuade them away from their goal of destroying America and Israel. That is the only language they understand, and this is drilled into them from birth. Kill or be killed, and you want us to be killed along with you. I think not, at least not for me you pacifist appeaser.

  • Delaware Bob

    Every illegal alien in this Country is a criminal. EVERYONE OF THEM!

    Illegal aliens have made America the dumping ground for all their illegal alien children, then we have to school them and give them free medical care.

    I for one, am sick and tired of these ILLEGAL ALIENS snubbing their nose at our immigration laws and the many other laws of this Country. If our Federal Government can not ENFORCE our immigration laws, and get these ILLEGAL ALIENS out of this Country, then let the States do it! One way or another, an end has to come to this illegal immigration, and not with AMNESTY! Amnesty will only encourage more ILLEGAL ALIENS to invade our Country and reward those who broke our laws and raped the American taxpayer in many ways…depressing our wages, taking our jobs, overwhelming our schools with their ILLEGAL ALIEN children, driving without a license or car insurance, all the crime from stolen identities to rape, drugs and everything else.

    It’s time for ZERO TOLERENCE with these ILLEGAL ALIENS. It’s time for them get out of this Country and back in their own Country where they belong. When we get rid of the ILLEGAL ALIENS, we will get rid of all the problems that go with them. THAT IS A FACT!

    Is Texas ready for a State Illegal Immigration Law?

    • eyeswideopen

      Ok, let’s get them out!! What is your plan? How many Billions do you think it will cost? How much to round them up? How much to feed them, while waiting to transport?. How many lawsuits do you think there will be? What do you think that will cost? What will you do with the children born on US soil? How many men will it take to move them? What will you do with those that are sick? Do we need to build internment camps with barbed wire? Do we shoot those trying to escape? How will we transport them, bus, train, airplanes, trucks? How do we figure out when we have them all? Finally who will do this? The military, National Guard, civilian militia, ICE, private security companies? and one more thing, when you come up with the answers to these questions be sure to post them.
      I agree with you about enforcing the present laws, and it needs to be addressed soon, but it does not have an easy solution.

      • Delaware Bob

        What will you do with the children born on US soil? First, these children born on American soil are also illegal aliens, NOT U.S. children. This will be challenged very soon.

        Put E-Verify in every business. Every employer checked. If they are found to be in this Country ILLEGALLY, dismiss them! E-Verify in every social service. You are found to be in this Country ILLEGALLY, no service. If’s it’s medical attention that is needed, give it and DEPORT! More police on the 287(g) program.

        How about a very stiff fine on being in this Country ILLEGALLY, plus a long jail stay. How would that work for the illegal aliens?

        What ever it takes, it is time for ZERO TOLLERENCE. Take away everything these illegal aliens DO NOT deserve, and they will self deport. If not round them up and deport them. Do this or let our Country be destroyed by the INVASION of the ILLEGAL ALIENS!

          MY RESPONSE

          Hate to burst your bubble, but everyone born in the US by the constitution is a citizen and not an illegal alien, you may not like that but that’s the way it is. What do you mean challenged?? How many illegal do you think would be able to pay a stiff fine, and if they can’t then what?????

          • beyonddisgust

            Maybe it is time to Amend the Constitution, so that Children born on US soil by Illegal Immigrants are not automatic citizens.

          • JeffH

            Give the illegal parents a choice, foster homes for the children or take them back to your country! At least it will be cheaper than keeping them all here.

          • JeffH

            When you start amending the Constitution to meet special needs, a presidence (?) is set to make further changes for special interests. Leave the Constitution as is.

          • JeffH

            Dickie … being a native Californian, I can attest to the liberal Democrats choice to give illegals a free pass to government programs.
            I do not hate immagrants, I despise giving away the bank to illegals and any other group that has destroyed industry in California. I am all for the environment, but the tree huggers have helped to destroy Californias economy also. Where is a fair balance? Not in California.

          • Ken

            The 14th amendment was writen by Jacob Howard, Senator, Wisconsin. He said it of course would not infer citizenship to those born in the US but not subject to its jurisdiction. So, ambassadors kids born here are not US citizens and neither are kids of illegal aliens. This is another fable everyone thinks is in the constitution (like the separation of church and state which just isn’t there. Kind of like the right to privacy means you can kill your unborn child.
            Google Jacob Howard and 14th amendment and you will know more than our politicians.

          • Kris in CO

            What will we do with all the babies born on US soil? Send them “anchor babies” back across the border with their law breaking parents until they’re 18. Seems like a simple solution to me.

          I do not want illegals getting the benefeits of government programs and taxpayer dollars. Send them all back where they came from! That said, you cannot blame them for wanting a better way of life. Just do it legaly!

        • Old Monkey

          You better read the 14th Ammendment, the framer’s intent, and practice. Indians on their tribal lands were not considered citizens by the 14th Ammendment. To this day the children of foieign diplomats are NOT US citizens even if born in US hospitals. The argumengt being the parents determine the best interest of their children, that their interest and loyalty is to the parent’s country.

          The only ruling by the Supremes was Wong Ark-Kim VS US. Mr. Wong was born to the parents of LEGAL RESIDENT ALIENS in the US. Though the verdict was correct, the case was very flawed in argument and could be overturned. NOTHING is said about Illegals, or those conspiring to gain citizenship for babies they are soon to drop for the benefit of US citizenship. The same argument parents determine the best interest of their children apply.

          Most of my family ARE OTM LEGAL IMMIGRANTS & NATURALIZED CITIZENS!! Illegals suffer in our country, our own minorities suffer and their wages depressed because of them. We are diminished as a country by their presence, and laughed at for devaluing our citizenship.

          We may not be able to send back all of them, but we can sure send back at least half and deny benefits to tyhose it wouldn’t be fair to. The remaining can be denied minority preference, and made to earn their keep like the Irish, Italians, and LEGAL Latios before them!!!!

          • eyeswideopen

            Old Monkey,
            good info, here’s a little more: In no subsequent cases has the Court explicity ruled on wether children born in US to illegal immigrant parents are entitled to birthrifht citizenship. However the Court has implicitly assumed or suggested that such children are entitled to birthright citizenship. See: INS vs RIOS-PINEDA 1985 and PLYLER vs DOE 1982. Doesn’t Congress possess the power to exclude them by legislation? Is that why Pres. Regan granted 2 million amensty and is that why neither party has addressed this issue since then? We can thank BOTH parties for this horrible costly MESS!!!!

          • Smilee

            The 14th amendment allow congress to make laws to enforce this amendments and they did make all Indians citizens

        • http://donthaveone Beberoni

          Put them all on work crews until they can be deported. Have them bust rock, build highways, pick up trash, whatever needs done, make them work for their meals and room, then send them back when the paperwork is done. If they try to escape, yeah buddy, shoot them. And let them know it ahead of time, so that they can make the choice whether to abide by the law, or die breaking it. Quit being appeasers.

          • Michael

            It’s not at all complicated until the democrats start applying their crybaby morality gestures about children born of illegals. They say, “these poor children deserve to live their lives as Americans”. But, if the same illegals wanted to have an abortion the Dems would be all for it. And in a scenario just as twisted, if an ederly fence hopper comes to this country and is denied happinees the dems would cry foul. However, if the same elderly illegal was dtermined by the health care end of life panels to be unworthy of treatment because of their age and hence become a candidate for euthanasia they would be OK with it.

            Democrat Logic, IS NOT!

            It is however, as simple as this:
            *Millitarize the border.
            *Arrest and deport all illegals when apprehendid immediately.
            *Illegals that are ill should be deported in an ambulance, stat.
            *Cost associated with this endeavor should be billed to Mexico together with an embargo on all goods and services until cost of such actions to control border breeches has been reimbursed.

            Now I know the thought in your little liberal mind is “well, what about trade”? To which my reply would be that Mexico needs us a whole lot more than we need Mexico. They’ll figure it out. It’s time Mexico be held accountable.
            I for one, am tired of paying for other peoples misdeeds.

      • Gary

        First you use e verify at all employment, I don’t care if you’ve been there 15 years. That would weed out millions right away. Place a huge fine on employers found in violation of the law. Use the money from the fines to pay for deportation costs. The deportation costs would be minimal as most illegals would leave on their own if there were no jobs. As for the children they are the parents responsibility, if they choose to leave them here make them wards of the State. I know this sounds heartless but if we want to keep our Country some tough action is needed. This will also get the 14Th amendment to the Supreme Court where they will finally rule that being born here of illegals doesn’t give you citizenship.

        • Smilee

          What if they rule they are citizens, that is after all what the fourteenth amendment says and congress can make laws to enforce this amendment but not the authority to change it nor can the court unless you believe the court can make law from the bench

      • JeffH

        Apend billions of stimulus dollars on eliminating illegals instead of paying off AIG executives. At least those billions spent would help America rid itself of the money sucking illegals that abuse “free health care and welfare”. Might save a lot more than anyone realizes and possibly help with lowering some health care costs. Not a fix all idea, but a step in the right direction.

      • JeffH

        You have all of the questions but never have an answer unless you want to bash someone…take your leftist blog snitching self to MSNBC Newsvine where you belong and can be appreciated!!!!

        • eyeswideopen

          Jeff, you poor thing, getting frustrated with having to think? Yes, I have questions, and yes I want you to think about what you are saying, rather than just making rash statements. Does anybody have any idea what it will cost to send the illegals back? This is probably why the Dem’s during Clinton and the Repubs during Bush didn’t want to address this issue. I did like your idea of using the penality monies and taxes from illegally hiding funds in off shore accounts to pay for addressing the illegal issue. The question we need to be asking our Senators is how much will it cost?? and where will we get the money from? Healthcare reform and immigration go hand in hand. Like it or not, I am a Republican who has a voice and you can’t do a damn thing about it.

        • Michael

          Jeff, the question to be asked is not how much it will cost to send them back. It is however, how much will it cost to keep them here?

      • Carol

        Here is my solution….cut out the freebies, they will go back home on their own. Case closed

      • c lee

        What about this? Why dont we take the money we are already spending to house feed insure proper medical care educate house in prison and loose untold numbers of jobs to Why dont we use this money to send them back. It would be a one time exspence per person rather than an ongoing exspence.And while were at it why dont we use some of this money to create new american jobs to help some of the LEGAL citizens of our country become employed again by creating the new jobs that it would take to deport these illegals. Its not a matter of trying to figure out who is responsable for making sure that the laws of this country are upheld because as a legal citezine of this country I maintain that its all of our responsability to protect our country. I realize this cant be done over night but it can be done. the end result will make us a stronger nation. If you think it would cost more to deport the illegals thanto allow them to stay I think you got rocks in your head. There are many sites you can go to that prove it is much more costly to allow the illegals to stay than it would be to send them back. As far as the kids go the parents need to take responsability for what they created I took responsability for mine. Iam so dam tired of listning to a bunch of cry babies argue about the democrats or the republicans open your eyes people because we are being concurd from within and they wont have to fire a shot. You get it its called divide an concure. Be honest with yourself right now as you read this. Do you realy feel safe with your country wide open for the taking as it is right now.

      Delaware Bob says: Every illegal alien in this Country is a criminal. EVERYONE OF THEM!

      I couldn’t agree more. Everything in your post was right on! Anyone here illegally is breaking the law! There should be no jail time; why should we house them, feed them, supply medical attention, lawyers, and/or anything else they need? They should be deported. They are not American citizens. They do not have the same rights to our Constitution as we do!

      I understand their desire for a better life. We have a system in place to enter the US legally. We have too many people out of work and too many politicians that look at them as voters. This is not a viable combination.

      I do not believe that big government is the way to go. But I do think that more can be done for our boarders. We are not just concerned about illegals here and the benefits they can reap by coming over the boarder. The violence, drug trafficking, gun trafficking, gang activity are what comes with illegal entry. It has to be stopped. Zero tolerance. The laws are going to have to be stiffer penalties to those who hire illegals. Fining the illegals is not a good plan; taking the fines that are collected from the companies that hired them could be used to fund their return trip ‘home.’

  • s c

    Who is Holder trying to fool? Does comrade obama think he can put a bandage on a tidal wave? It’s too little too late. As long as America has to endure open borders, safety and defense are a meaningless words.
    Border states are doing Washington’s job. Arizona, New Mexico and Texas shoulder most of this burden. A strong military presence would help, but this isn’t likely to happen (especially when uncle scam uses the National Guard for combat duties in foreign countries).
    Once again, Washington is the continuing root cause of an unnecessary problem that should have been solved long ago. The stench of career politicians on both sides of the aisle lives on.

    • eyeswideopen

      S.C., First you don’t want the government interfering in your lives, then you want the military to police your state?. Texas wants to succeed, doesn’t want any financial assistance from the Federal Government but you want the borders patroled by the military?. Yes, I bet Comrade Obama is totally confused, you confuse me, and I’m a Republican, I should be able to follow your train of thought. You simply can’t have it both ways. Frankly, I would love it if Texas would leave the Union. They would be much happier, they could handle their own natural disasters, build their own roads,and airports, have their own military/Coast Guard, make their own immigration laws, etc. it would save the rest of us billions of dollars. Just the Federal aid, not counting Medicare, the oil subsidies, the NIH grants to their universities, would really help the rest of the states that want to be part of America. I say go…be happy. I’m sure Holder didn’t offer alot of money, as they do have a habit of turning it down.

      • beyonddisgust

        Eyes it is the Constitutional Obligation of the Federal Government to secure US soverignty against foreign threats.
        Remember that the Federal Government took on this obligation by winning the Civil War!
        Anyways, Holder’s statement and program is a sham and a token jesture that is completly Political in nature!
        What is $4million going to achieve in consideration to the US’s Southwest Border with Mexico?

    • DaveH

      The Libertarians have long been attacked with the accusation that they are ‘anarchists’ and that anarchy would bring chaos. Only a small portion of Libertarians advocate complete elimination of government (anarchy) thereby privatizing current government functions. Also, the chaos accusation is fallacious since there have been very few societies in history that have had no statist government. So where is their evidence for that accusation of ensuing ‘chaos’? I believe it has been a deliberate attempt by the people in power and their apologists (e.g. news media) to besmirch Libertarians.
      My contention has long been the opposite. That is – too much government brings chaos. I think we are approaching that level rapidly.

      • eyeswideopen

        Dave, I do not like the military coming in and patroling the borders, I don’t want the military walking in force in any American city. Who was attacking Libertarians? I am all for less government, just trying to figure out how to do it. I am tired of all these people saying no more government in our lives and then getting mad when they aren’t!! That is the kind of hyprocrisy that drives me wild and makes me have to respond to these absurd attacks on the present admin. It’s not that I like them, I just can’t stand anyone talking trash and then wanting to use the government to their own benifit.
        On a previous site, I asked you what you thought of trying to get these passionate people interested in coming up with ideas of how to trim the government. All of this anger could be put to good use. What do you think?

        • beyonddisgust

          Eyes the US military protecting our borders does not give them the authority to manage cities.
          There are laws that forbid this.
          If you have problems with the US military running around US cities, maybe you should Amend the Constitution to remove Military Bases from US soil; because right now there are many american military bases all over our great country.

        • DaveH

        • JeffH

          I most certainly would have our military protect/patrol US borders rather than protect Afghan/Pakistan borders. Would lower the odds of them getting killed by car bombs or donkey carts loaded with explosives.

        • JeffH

          The US military protecting our border is a far cry from some left wing wacko government that doesn’t want any law abiding citizen to have the tools to protect themselves from foreign intrusion or themselves. A huge differance of government interferance. You might have forgotten that the military is made up of American citizens who protect and believe in a free country too.

  • s c

    One of the military’s jobs is to protect America from hostile invaders and ‘others’ who don’t belong here (FACT). Texas is a border state (FACT). Washington is not doing its job (FACT).
    If Texas is in the habit of refusing government ‘assistance,’ good for them. They’ve probably learned the hard way that when you accept federal monies, you might as well be a slave. Hopefully, Texas can protect itself. At least Texas can claim to have some integrity, which is a lot more than California can say.
    As for your being a ‘Republican,’ you do an excellent job of sounding like that fence-sitting Specter or his career vermin pals. Kindly consider becoming an ultralib. If you’re not already ‘there,’ you’re close.

          Why not join the democratic party, you will be welcomed there, When I was in my early sixties I did, I used to be a very active republican until all the jerks that hang around here started taking it over and when that happened you had to toe the line or they harassed the hell out of you just like they are doing to you here. I did not really know what the democratic party was until I joined it as I had only known the republican definition of what they are and now I know what they say about the democrats is all false, A man tells the truth and a republican hollers “you lie” they are very rude and bad for this country and the sad part is they are so unaware they are a destructive force for all of us. You are like the republicans I knew before the eighties and the government haters became a problem, this was Reagan’s gospel do not fix the problems with government dismantle it and in that process he brought all these haters out of the wood work and validated them. Oh by the way I we have a large number of former republicans in the democratic party thanks to people like davy and S C and many others here.

    When folks say things like Washington is not doing its job, I wonder if they realize how serious the implications of that truth are? If our representatives are supposed to be representing the American citizenry, purposely are not, than what position are Americans actually in, in their own nation? Even if amnesty is defeated, even if illegal immigration is finally stopped, and the rule of law in this area restored, we have still witnessed a totally intransigent government, purposely going against the will of the majority of citizens. What that implies folks, is, that Americans had better start to get on the ball, and get together. Americans NEED, to talk with each other and speak up against tyranny, like the thousands of people who have been doing so at the town hall meetings. These Americans are NOT, weirdos, or Republicans, or Rednecks, or whatever else they have been called by an out of control central government. The handwriting is on the wall, we better start reading it.

    • JeffH

      Nice! (hands clapping)

    • DaveH

      I agree Bobby. The following statements aren’t directed at you:
      A big step in the battle against tyranny would be for us all to be respectful of the opinions of others, so pride won’t get in the way of potential advocates of freedom. If we avoid the ridicule, name-calling, and other forms of manipulation that are so common on this board, I think that the learning experience will be greatly enhanced. We need all the disciples we can get if we want to stop this Big Government Juggernaut.

      • Smilee

        As long as you hang around here davie it will never happen, we all you are incapable of doing this yourself as you are biggest adjective user here and also the biggest name caller, its really funny hearing a statement like this from you, your guilt get to you once in awhile.

  • John C. Davidson

    Evidently, it is to the advange of the crooks we elected to have us argue amongst ourselves regarding which tactic works best to fleece all of us. It is time to correct their thinking that we are all stupid.

  • TED

    It would be easy to get rid of all illegals. Just park buses in Walmart lots, emergency room parking lots. If they can’t prove citizenship put ‘em on the bus. Hire retired military to guard the border with orders to shoot all north bound traffic. PROBLEM SOLVED!

    • Smilee

      Do you carry proof of citizenship with you all the time, assuming you are not an illegal


    I view everything this man Eric Holder does with deep suspicion, he would not do anything that would benefit the common good without a ulterior motive and that is from his history of antics he has pulled in his government career. He is a gun control nut, steps on the Constitution with impungnity and cannot tell the straight truth even if you had him by his neck tie, he has let terrorist get out of jail, failed to keep traitors in jail and refused to prosecute criminals of the Black Panther party for threatening voters, he will not recuse himself from the release of terrorist from GITMO when he has a real reason to do so. The litany of his unscruppulous past are numerous and disgusting but he is working for a guy who is just like him.

  • Jack Kinch(1uncle)

    The Kenyan has surrounded himself with crazies and crooks. We are war overpopulated now. And Hispanics are the worlds fast breeders.

    • Smilee

      Another admits he is a racist

    • eyeswideopen

      Dude, maybe you need to run for the hills, those latino’s are going to get ya. It will be funny when the white guys who are racists are in the minority. That’s probably how the Indians felt when they saw us comming. Lol, This country is changing and you can’t stop it. The day of the white man ruling is coming to an end.

  • Tim Gunning

    I have traveled into Tjuanna from SanYsidro many times. There are 24 Customs stations on route 5 and you do not get in to the USA unless you present the correct papers. I believe the cost of building an appropriate fence from the Pacific to the gulf on the south border and on the North border if necesary with many many more Customs stations would fade into insignificants when compared with the cost of our present annual cost with illegal immigrants and traffic (all things considered like drug enforcement,welfare,etc.) The only holdup to doing so is the people who think those illegals will vote for them and the bunch that are bought into the northamerican union.

  • sonny

    We should all blame Congress for the mess were in. As much as I dislike our President he can do nothing without Congress. Illegal aliens are hurting every state. Texas spends $4.7 billion dollars per year, California spends $10.5 billion dollars per year, Pennsylvania spends $728 million dollars per year. Illegal aliens are costing American jobs, 30% of the Federal prisions are illegal aliens, free healthcare education and other entitlements. Children born of illegal aliens on American soil are citizens and are entitled to welfare, wic and all goverenment entitlements. In 2006 illegal aliens sent $45 billion dollars back to the countries of their origin. The hospitals make up for their free healthcare on us, American citizens with insurance. The U.S. spends $338.3 billion dollars per year on illegal aliens, isn’t it time we stopped voting these morons into office. Let’s vote them all out and get a fresh start. As for eyeswideopen I’m a Texan and proud of it, you need to get your facts straight before you spout off, you’r part of the problem instead of the solution. The next big push by our leaders will be amnesty for illegal aliens, wait and see.

    • JeffH

      The only ones to blame is ourselves for allowing our government to turn into a Capitol Hill Country Club for the high and mighty. Their memberships were bought and paid for by big business and the rich and influential, but with giant concessions and IOU’s attached. They sold themselves to the devil! The taxpayer has been paying for the concessions and the IOU’s.
      We can start changing the membership in 2010…

  • David Schroeder

    Arlington to receive more than 25% of the money to fight illegal immigration and drug trafficking along the US border….in spite of the fact that they are 9 hours away from the border. How interesting.

  • Tom

    What a joke. This is more about drug control than immigration. It so nice to see the USA pick & choose the laws they inforce. We should have no illegal’s here period.

  • Rahm

    Eyes Wide Open, Is that you? have not seen you since the DNC convention. What’s happenen? Still tormenting these dumb repulicans hey. Cant believe they havnt figured you out yet. Take care. Soooo bummed about van Jones.

    • eyeswideopen

      Yep, Rahm, its me. Did you see those Republicans joining the party? Lots’ of them,,,they be very unhappy. They where the moderate Repub’s,you know the one’s that weren’t radical…Told them we would be happy to have em. Nice to see ya again, good thing about Van, he will be better used organizing and speaking, rather than sitting behind desk. He’ll now be able to start up more groups like Change. org, you know the grp that cost Beck 46 sponsors. Hey, we need to reduce some more govern agencies, good talking point for us.

      • eyeswideopen

        oop, make that 62 sponsors.

        • Smilee

          I noticed Fox is advertising a lot of their own shows on Glen’s show now, I guess they are having trouble getting enough advertisers from the outside

          • eyeswideopen

            My girlfriend who does advertising for a major candy company said they had hundreds of thousands (plural) of complaints and were thinking of pulling ad’s on O’reily also, as they have previously gotten same type of complaints regarding his statements about the girl who deserved to get raped, because of the outfit she had on. Did you see where Glenn is upset that MSNBC is in the Rockafeller center? I guess he doesn’t realize his building is too!! He is a nut case.

  • Robert

    Teas doesn’t need Federal money. All they need is for Washington to butt out of their affairs and let them do their job. And Texas can get the job done right and with compassion and strength. My only suggestion to Texas is for them to take Washington’s money so you can represent the fine Texas law enforement people that will be brought up on charges by the US Attorney’s Office.
