Report: U.S. Controls Only 10 Percent Of Its Border

October 19, 2009 by  

U.S. controls only 10 percent of its border, report says The Department of Homeland Security’s Annual Performance Report suggests that out of 8,607 miles of America’s land borders, the government effectively controls only 894 miles, which is a bit more than 10 percent.

As a result, the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) has blasted the government for its failure to increase control of U.S. borders and suggested the report boosts the case against the administration’s plans to promote an illegal alien amnesty in 2010, which FAIR calls " ill-conceived."

"The DHS report makes it very clear that another divisive debate about granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens must be scrapped," says the organization’s president Dan Stein.

"The federal government must set meaningful standards for securing our borders … and devote the resources and manpower necessary to keep our nation safe and achieve dramatic reduction in illegal immigration," he adds.

Earlier this month, FAIR has also criticized the administration and congressional leaders for their failure to permanently reauthorize the E-Verify program. The program is a worksite verification tool that allows employers to voluntarily determine whether workers are legally authorized to work in the U.S. by electronically checking their Social Security numbers.

Over the objections of immigration reform advocates, a House-Senate conference committee had voted to extend E-Verify for only three years.

    NO ONE can look at this issue and claim that uncle scam is doing his job. It is, at the very least, a matter of taxation without representation (didn’t that cause a major rebellion and a W A R about 230 years ago?).
    Since uncle scam is not in the border protection ‘business,’ it is up to the border states to do uncle scam’s job AND make uncle scam look bad at the same time. Beyond that, those who do care about America’s safety [Maricopa County Arizona's sheriff, for example] should be praised for his efforts to compensate for the blatant and anti-American policies that are designed to make his job impossible.
    It’s bad enough that we have a bread-and-circuses government (that includes bush and comrade obama). America is not obligated to sit by and watch the constant influx of pampered illegals (especially when treasonous politicians rack up easy votes via pre-programmed ‘voters’).
    For the preach freedom, practice tyranny crowd, illegals are guilty of breaking America’s illegal immigration LAWS. We need an active military presence on our borders. We do not need overpaid, under-worked turncoat politicians who REFUSE to do their oath-bound job(s). Outsource the scum and SOLVE THE PROBLEM!

    • Robin from Indiana

      sc… well said! I believe that illegals should be deported and our boarders need to be secured. Amnesty should not even be a consideration as a whole. I think there would be cases that will prove that a blanket law would not be in the best interest of our nation, but for the most part if you are here illegally, then you are breaking the law.

      • s c

        Instead of deporting illegal aliens, put them to work in finishing that border fence that we’ve been denied. If more money is needed, send the bill(s) to George Soros, ACORN and any and all corporations that took stimulus money and didn’t ‘re-distribute’ it.
        Why make it complicated by sending illegal aliens back to their former homes? When illegal aliens get tired of eating gourmet meals (like MREs), they can always stay at home. If they get tired of the living conditions, they could request to be sent to Sheriff Arpaio’s outdoor ‘hotel’ in the Phoenix area.
        Just a thought.

      Just thought I would toss in this poll I just voted on:

      How do you feel about what President Obama has accomplished so far?

      Disaster: What the hell were 65 million Americans thinking! (69%, 863 Votes)
      Excellent: The “Change” we were looking for. (10%, 123 Votes)
      Above Average (9%, 109 Votes)
      Poor (8%, 94 Votes)
      Average (5%, 64 Votes)

      Enforcing Immigration Laws. If we are serious about avoiding the fiscal costs of illegal immigration, the only real option is to enforce the law and reduce the number of illegal aliens in the country. First, this would entail much greater efforts to police the nation’s land and sea borders. At present, less than 2,000 agents are on duty at any one time on the Mexican and Canadian borders. Second, much greater effort must be made to ensure that those allowed into the country on a temporary basis, such as tourists and guest workers, are not likely to stay in the country permanently. Third, the centerpiece of any enforcement effort would be to enforce the ban on hiring illegal aliens. At present, the law is completely unenforced. Enforcement would require using existing databases to ensure that all new hires are authorized to work in the United States and levying heavy fines on businesses that knowingly employ illegal aliens. Finally, a clear message from policymakers, especially senior members of the administration, that enforcement of the law is valued and vitally important to the nation, would dramatically increase the extremely low morale of those who enforce immigration laws.

      Policing the border, enforcing the ban on hiring illegal aliens, denying temporary visas to those likely to remain permanently, and all the other things necessary to reduce illegal immigration will take time and cost money. However, since the cost of illegal immigration to the federal government alone is estimated at over $10 billion a year, significant resources could be devoted to enforcement efforts and still leave taxpayers with significant net savings. Enforcement not only has the advantage of reducing the costs of illegal immigration, it also is very popular with the general public. Nonetheless, policymakers can expect strong opposition from special interest groups, especially ethnic advocacy groups and those elements of the business community that do not want to invest in labor-saving devices and techniques or pay better salaries, but instead want access to large numbers of cheap, unskilled workers. If we choose to continue to not enforce the law or to grant illegals amnesty, both the public and policymakers have to understand that there will be significant long-term costs for taxpayers.

      The question is, how do we stop the problem.

      To me, a better answer is not try to get the water out (deportations) but go for the source of the leak (protecting the border). We can do this in two ways. Either spend billions protecting the border viciously and lower our own image or spend an equal amount of billions helping Mexico with the drug war (which affects us just as bit as it does them) which would bring down violence which would stop the pushing out of Mexican refugees to the United States. I personally prefer the latter.

    Crime wave: as an illegal-alien crime wave overtakes America, government officials do nothing because they either support open borders or fear to anger the Hispanic community.…-a0158092280

    • DEC

      They figure if they give millions of illegals citizenship, they will have millions new voters as well. As usual, Americans are pushed aside for criminals who have no right to be in this country. I think Congress is going to get a big surprise next year when they get voted out of office for supporting illegals. They deserve to lose their seats. Illegals won’t vote, they only want the freebies they can mooch off this country. They don’t care about politics, especially is you can’t even understand English.

      • JeffH

        …It won’t be for just supporting illegals, it will be for NOT supporting America.

  • Stephen

    There is no such thing as a law abiding illegal alien. Americans will NEVER accept another amnesty. We are being invaded by millions of foreign nationals, this is an act of war! Bring home our troops and secure our borders. Vote out all traitors in government that support amnesty and pander to illegals. WAKE UP AMERICA!

    Two steps forward, one step backwards? That is the situation illegal immigration been, since forced back into the spotlight Patriots and exceptionally American works can claim another small victory. The Senate had to finally give in to public pressure and pass a three year extension for E-Verify. A small but significant step in slowly, but surely removing illegal foreign workers out of the job market? But the insuring battle is far from over? Let us question the open border meddlers. Let’s just say for one minute–and this is a big IF, knowing the frustrated and angry mood of 15 million out-of-work Americans? If a comprehensive path to citizenship was to pass, how is our all-powerful government expected to halt the inflow of millions upon millions more illegal aliens at the border?

    Without any doubt there will be a tangible effect of word-of-mouth spreading like searing magma across the border, the Pacific, Atlantic and other oceans of the world. Will the fraternity of corrupted legislators bring home our troops from different nations of the world and place whole commands along the intentionally poorly constructed border? Or perhaps they will direct the National Guard once again, to picket that national demarcation line the between the two countries? My thoughts are that a torrent, will materialize into a flood, then a maelstrom of desperate human beings will start a perilous charge to take advantage of health care, education and whatever California and other-SANCTUARY STATES–have been declared to have for free. This border fence was–NOTHING–like that originally planned? Rep. Duncan Hunter R-CA was the author of the planned border fence, which originality can be seen in San Diego, California. It is not what we view currently stretching from California to Texas? Hunters construction was two layer with a no-mans-land in between the two strands for Border Patrol use. Speeding vehicles had the capability of barreling along to any illegal incursion, on a two lane track Instead of illegal entrants only having to scale one steel barrier, they would likely be caught in between the fences and unable to negotiate the second fence before being apprehended?

    Illegal access to America was never completed, because our Politicians corporate employers never intended to keep the majority of discount labor out the country. THINK ABOUT IT? IF ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION LAWS WERE MEANT TO BE ENFORCED, THE COURTS WOULD HAVE MADE IT A SERIOUS FELONY. INSTEAD IT’S NOT EVEN A MINOR INFRACTION. You would think that the US Chamber of Commerce would be very potent, in fighting the government on behalf of the 15 million jobless workers. But they are already filing lawsuits to compromise E-Verify on behalf of Fed Contractor and subcontractors. In court they are stating that the government lacks the authority to make the voluntary program mandatory.

    The US Chamber of Commerce, The ACLU, and Council for Foreign Relations–REAL AGENDA–is to completely eradicate any border, port or airline enforcement–to expedite the easy access of impoverished cheap labor. Randel Johnson, chamber senior vice president for labor, immigration and employee benefits stated, “Our main focus right now is to try and provide that the regulation, that does not require the re-verification of current employees.” But then any prudent person must realize that not only is federal contractors and subcontractors have unknown numbers of illegal workers holding American jobs? But anywhere in the job market illegal immigrants are likely shielded by thousands of employers, given refuge by churches, hidden in unions halls We should concentrate on the numbers of illegal foreign labor who have been informed upon by the companies own labor force.

    In Los Angeles 1800 individuals were disclosed, working at a clothing factory on fraudulent documentation. In Postville, Iowa a lightening ICE raid detained 300 unauthorized workers. Today most of those jobs have been filled by legal black, white, brown or any other colored skin, but the usual suspects have complained that these are jobs, are jobs Americans won’t do? Take these numbers and calculate them by how many hundreds of thousands of businesses there are in the United States? If just those two large companies are anything to go by, the actual numbers of illegal labor working without–THE PEOPLE’S PERMISSION is absolutely staggering? My cousin’s grandfather picked fruit in Oregon, American kids mowed laws, flipped burgers, teens babysat small children, and unskilled cleaned toilets and made beds in motels and hotels? Now you’re lucky if you can find a US citizen, in the entertainment industry, janitorial jobs or hundreds of other low wage categories? All these jobs were slowly encompassed by illegal exploited labor, because they can be intimidated by employers who spin the word “El Migra.”? Always and forever, its about the profit and large copious bonuses, these executives are making using foreign nationals, instead of US workers.

    First, the majority of these outlaw companies probably do not pay HEALTH INSURANCE? As I have repeated–over and over again–they either jettisons there injured charges, such as roofers, construction or any manual labor on the steps of the county emergency hospital? These companies are very knowledgeable of Federal law, because they and industrial organizations have subjected our Civil Servants in Washington to unceasing lobbying. The Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (42 U.S.C. § 1395dd, EMTALA) is a United States Act of Congress passed in 1986 as part of the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act. It requires hospitals and ambulance services to provide care to anyone needing emergency health care treatment regardless of citizenship, legal status or ability to pay. No language relates to reimbursement provisions in the act. As a result of the legislation, any patients needing emergency treatment can only be discharged under their own informed consent or when their condition requires transfer to a hospital better equipped to administer care.

    Nefarious companies are fully aware of this law that sick people who are low income can enter any emergency room and receive medical treatment and the companies are not held accountable for the hospital bills. They rid themselves of the responsibility onto the US taxpayer or the hospital to swallow the medical bill. Unlike citizens and legal resident not only are forced to pay for this in their taxes. If however they fall into the same quicksand of paying for medical bills for themselves and family they are literary hunted down by skip tracers and obnoxious debt collectors. Illegal foreign workers are almost exempt because they have no tracking ID papers, whereas the rest of the legal population are continually harassed by arrogant debt collectors. Many become victims of bankruptcy? Unlike industrialized nations who have for years benefited from Universal health care, this country has badly failed the American people and instead favored money grabbing private insurance. It does seem inconceivable thousands of Americans die each year, because they cannot afford the premiums for their families.

    Whereas illegal workers are receiving free treatments, expensive dialysis and major surgery compliments of US taxpayers. GOOGLE–illegal immigrants–hospitals–health care for raw intelligence? As a example in April, University Medical Center, Nevada has been spending about $2 million per month providing emergency dialysis services to 80 illegal immigrants. WE SHOULD VIVIDLY REMEMBER THIS IS THE HOME OF SENATOR HARRY REID, WHOSE POWERFUL INFLUENCE IN WASHINGTON, HAS INTENTIONALLY USED HIS POWER TO WEAKEN OR TRAMPLE ON ANY IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT. HE AND HIS DEMOCRATIC FORCE HAS BEEN INSTRUMENTAL EARLIER IN TRYING TO DERAIL E-VERIFY. One should consider he has a very large population of illegal foreign nationals settled in Nevada. He hopes to be re-elected next year? Legal residents and it’s citizens should watch for any kind of irregularities in the voting booth, specifically absentee ballots?

    California–a stark reality of complete flagrant disregard of federal law, has instituted its own policy of a SANCTUARY STATE. Over the years it’s amassed a uncounted population of impoverished, poorly educated illegal labor and their families. It has become a very costly situation for Angelenos and Californians as a whole. With a Liberal-Socialist-Marxist assembly in Sacramento, the tax and spend hierarchy have driven the State into near bankruptcy. Estimated in just the Los Angeles the numbers of illegal immigrants is 3 million people. According to U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (CIS), an estimated 2,209,000 illegal immigrants
    resided in California in 2000, up from 1,476,000 in 1990. Since then the numbers have accelerated to unbelievable numbers, which is owing to our border remaining intentionally limited security.

    As usual the opponents of any kind of restriction on the illegal immigration, is playing the race card? It’s a forgone conclusion that the benefactors of promoting a mass invasion of our shores, such as religious groups, unions, ACLU, radical ethnic caucuses and even our own US Chamber of Commerce, will mouth epithets to any person group or other entity–IF–doesn’t benefit big business who advocate a continuous force of illegal cheap labor. Now they are really frustrated because their objection to E-Verify was thrown out of a Maryland Federal court. All federal contractors and subcontractors must adhere to the law as of September 30. They have conspired against the American worker and people for too long and now we are fighting back ourselves against corrupt politicians and other elected officials nationwide,

    Rep. Joe Wilson was actually telling the truth at the time, and now Democrats have placed restrictive language in the Health care reform package as a reluctant afterthought by public demand. This was nothing to do about bigotry or racism, but the American workers and family survival? Business community who hire illegals pay generally below the national minimum wage or other benefits, which forces there employees to rely on the taxpayer to carry the financial load. The US labor force should not have to be in competition, with people from other countries? Businesses have already offshore American jobs, because it’s cheaper? Every illegal foreign national and family member should be exempt from government run health care, jobs and all the billions of taxpayer dollars secretly allocated to pay for their support. Twenty million plus illegal people compromised themselves, when they entered a sovereign nation without permission. The invasion of illegal immigrants into the state of California has much to do with its monolithic budget meltdown.

    County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich in 2004 released new statistics from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Social Services showing that Illegal Aliens collected more than $37 million in welfare and food stamp allocations in November 2008, up $3 million from September 2007. Illegal’s collected more than $20 million in welfare assistance in November and more than $16 million in food stamp allocations, for a projected annual cost of $444 million.

    That is not the entire picture of the taxpayer burden. When you add in the cost of free Emergency Room services, free Public School education as well as public safety and free housing the annual cost is $3,000,000,000 a year and rising! In California they get a free lunch on the taxpayers in Los Angeles county compliments of Sacramento. That from 2007 welfare had increased $2 million over the previous two months. He also said that 25% of all welfare and food stamp benefits go directly to children of illegal aliens and that the projected annual cost in welfare and food stamps for illegal aliens would be $444 million. That is far from the entire picture of the taxpayer burden. That’s only the cost to taxpayers in Los Angeles County, how much is it costing the rest of the United States taxpayers? Is the cost $20 Billion, $30 Billion or $50 Billion annually? No one really knows, because most States refuse to ask the important question; “Are you a Legal Immigrant?”

    My concern and thousands of other citizens and legal residents is how many—ILLEGAL ALIENS—are voting in elections, when no governmental ID is not needed to prove immigration status. Simply recognize that California is a—SANCTUARY STATE—and by removing millions of illegal immigrants and their families would assist on balancing the budget. E-Verification being continuously modified from its original success rate of 99.6 is now constantly on the minds of company executives. Now with a three year extension those Democrats had no choice, but to irritably approve because of public outrage. FIRST IT PROVES THAT BEYOND ANY SHADOW OF DOUBT PUBLIC EXPOSURE AND ANGRY CONTACT WITH THEIR POLITICIANS HAVE EXEMPLARY EFFECTS ON HOW THEY VOTE? THE THREE YEAR EXTENSION WAS A SMALL VICTORY CELEBRATION. BUT BE ASSURED WE HAVE TO KEEP A JAUNDICED EYE ON EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THEM. WE CANNOT LET GO FOR ONE MINUTE?
    Since 2005 there have been announcements of the closure of the emergency rooms, this includes Elastar Community Hospital in East Los Angeles. Tracey Veal, a spokeswoman for the Northridge hospital, said, It is estimated that the hospital spent $13 million on so-called charity care in the fiscal year that ended on June 30. Four other emergency rooms have closed in the county in the last two years. The reason given is the high cost of treating uninsured people. The article also states that 70 hospital emergency rooms and trauma centers have closed in California since 1990.The county estimates the cost of providing them with health care is $340 million annually.

    There are approximately 127 Sanctuary Cities in this country; this figure keeps rising every year. In in Pennsylvania.taxpayers footed a $25.3 million bill in 2007-08 to pay for emergency health care for non-citizens. Tax-funded subsidies of $2 million went to seven area hospitals. Florida Hospitals have to write off $100 million dollars in unpaid medical bills because of illegal aliens. The Florida Hospital Association says taxpayers pick up the tab. Austin — The state of Texas and local hospital districts spent an estimated $677 million to provide health care to illegal immigrants in a year, a new study says. In a recent year in Colorado, the state’s emergency Medicaid program paid an estimated $30 million in hospital and physician delivery costs for about 6,000 illegal immigrant mothers – average of $5,000 per baby. Those 6,000 births to illegal aliens represent 40% of the births paid for by Medicaid in Colorado. Those 6,000 babies immediately became U.S. citizens and qualified for full Medicaid services.

    WASHINGTON — The IRS allowed foreign workers — many of them in the U.S. illegally — to improperly claim nearly $7 billion in child tax credits from 2004 to 2007, a government investigator said Thursday.

    It’s estimated there may be over 300,000 anchor babies born each year in the U.S. Thus, illegal alien mothers now add more to U.S. population each year than immigration from all sources in an average year before 1965. These babies are called anchor babiesbecause they act as an anchor that pulls the illegal alien mother and a host of other relatives into permanent U.S. residency. The instant citizenship of the baby, makes the mother favorable for low income housing and other less known government benefits?

    FAIR estimates “there are currently between 287,000 and 363,000 children born to illegal aliens each year. This figure is based on the crude birth rate of the total foreign-born population (33 births per 1000) and the size of the illegal alien population (between 8.7 and 11 million). In 1994, California paid for 74,987 deliveries to illegal alien mothers, at a total cost of $215.2 million (an average of $2,842 per delivery). Illegal alien mothers accounted for 36 percent of all Medi-Cal funded births in California that year.”

    FAIR research shows that “the Urban Institute estimates that the cost of educating illegal alien children in the nation’s seven states with the highest concentration of illegal aliens was $3.1 billion in 1993 (which, with the growth of their population to 1.3 million, would be more like $5 billion in 2000). This estimate does not take into account the additional costs of bilingual education or other special educational needs.”

    So vote—NO–on all propositions as you are supporting parasite businesses that hire illegal cheap labor. The Liberal Assembly in Sacramento has allowed foreign labor to settle here and now the Piper must be paid. US Taxpayers are unknowingly paying billions of dollars in State benefits to underwrite education, health care, housing, Public Safety and other benefits and now has the highest taxes in the nation? If we don’t draw the line now–the politicians will keep drawing more and more blood from us, in the form of raised taxes.

    A national plan for dealing with insolvent states is to let the rogue businesses of that state that got the benefits of all the profligate spending bear the burden? It is unconscionable to spread the burden of asinine policy on those who neither supported it, nor received the benefits of it. IT’S ALL ABOUT CORPORATE WELFARE AND ACCESS TO THE POLITICIANS WHO SUPPOSEDLY PROTECT THE TAXPAYER.

    Today the mechanism, which checks employee information from I-9 forms against Social Security and homeland security databases, is used voluntarily by more than 148,000 employers and growing. Whether this because the fear of criminal penalties or just being a good loyal American, I don’t know? Then groups such as the Society for Human Resource Management, US Chamber of Commerce and immigrant rights organizations have criticized the system for being inefficient, ineffective and unable to detect identity theft. They say that mistakes in government records could cause hundreds of thousands of legal workers are being declared ineligible. BUT INDIVIDUAL CAN EASILY RESOLVE THAT PROBLEM? THEY CAN ARRIVE WITH THEIR ID, TO THE LOCAL SOCIAL SECURITY OFFICE? THOSE WORKERS NOT ELIGIBLE TO WORK IN AMERICA, WILL NOT ENTER THIS GOVERNMENT BUILDING BECAUSE OF CONSEQUENCES? IT’S AS SIMPLE AS THAT?

    It would foolish to think that the major majority of the US populace are going to sit back and remain silent, if the automatons of the business–OUR LAWMAKERS–try to force AMNESTY through.

    The most important is to keep “illegal immigration” on the front burner. Like me! VERY INTERESTING DIALOG FOUND ON THE NET?
    “Letters to the Editor” about illegal immigration and how it affects the taxpayer and those who are in our nation illegally. When you read a “Letter to the Editor” or read a newspaper article about “illegal immigration”, respond to the newspaper article or the letter writer with facts are easily obtainable on the net. Become a Whistle-Blower are scrutinize work sites, day laborer pick up points, vans/trucks transporting workers and Record dates, times and places and other relevant information. Pass this information along to law enforcement and (ICE) Immigration and Customs service. REMEMBER! NEXT TIME IT MIGHT BE YOUR JOB ON THE LINE?

    Keep pressure on city, county, and state legislators. Write letters, send emails, visit their offices, phone them and constantly harass their assistants. Attendance to public hearings that is sponsored by elected officials is a must. Don’t be afraid to speak your mind
    contact talk show radio hosts, invite elected officials to come to the meeting to speak

    Follow these instructions by TARGETOC

    When reading about organization or groups with a tax exempt status investigate more? Explore those bringing a lawsuit against a city or county municipality, who has passed an ordinance against illegal immigration? Check to see if their tax exemption prohibits legislative activities. If so, you can contact the IRS and request that their

    Tax exempt status be removed (this hurts the group in the pocketbook). IRS will keep your identity confidential if you so choose. Be prepared to send IRS documentation such as newspaper clippings of the organization’s or group, even faith groups and political activity other than the actual lawsuit. To verify the organizations/groups that are bringing about the lawsuits, go to their website: or you can contact the organization and inquire whether they are tax exempt?

    Hold small group meetings on “Stopping Illegal Immigration”. Make up flyers, contact newspapers and send out newsletters. Contact talk show radio hosts, invite elected officials to come to the meeting to speak and request that they

    Forward information about their officials meetings and email constituents who are interested in stopping illegal immigration. Then contact radios stations and ask them to broadcast the meeting place, dates, times, etc. Invite speakers such as law enforcement, ICE, elected officials, contractors who have been affected by illegal immigration, workers who were fired and whose employer hired illegal immigrants to replace such employee, people who live adjacent to illegal immigrant housing, health care workers who can tell you the diseases that illegal’s are carrying, school officials that can give you costs of educating illegal immigrant children and cost to print instructional materials, cost of hiring bi-lingual teachers/interpreters, etc.

    Encourage local law enforcement to adopt the federal program, 287 (g). The 287 (g) programs gives law enforcement a data base in which to check for legal status of workers. This data base not only goes to ICE but it integrates into other federal data bases. Local sheriffs’ deputies can be trained by ICE to function as ICE agents in many ways on the local level.

    Make sure that cities, counties, and states use the E-Verify (formerly Basic Pilot) verification system in awarding government contracts.

    Call your U. S. Senators and Congressmen and demand the rapid completion of a fence along our southern border and urge legislation that will punish employment of illegals. All 535 congressmen and senators can be reached by calling the Capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121 or attend all meetings related to “stopping illegal immigration” and invite others to attend. When arrests are made of people of questionable legal status, contact law enforcement to make sure the suspect has been checked for legal status through ICE.

    Attend meetings, such as city council and county council, speaking on the issue during public comment opportunities. Form networks of mailing addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, etc. to coordinate efforts. Stay focused, be patient, and try to remain positive.

    Verify that those who work for you such as landscapers, housekeepers, painters, etc. are here legally before you engage them to do the work for you.

    Do not support businesses which hire illegal immigrants, such as restaurants. Be sure to ask the business if they hire illegal’s. Tell the owner/manager that you will not do business with anyone who hires illegal immigrants.


    Participate in talk radio programs when the subject is on illegal immigration.

    Encourage city and county elected officials to pass ordinances on illegal immigration. Support elected officials who are passing legislation/ordinances on illegal immigration. 22. Do all that you can do to support legislation for funding additional ICE agents by contacting your federal legislators?

    American workers are under incessant attack by the open border insaneness. If the US worker who wants to save his job from overseas cheap labor, they must get involved with organizations that wish to reduce legal and illegal immigration. 1.5 newcomers enter America legally through the immigration green card lottery and at least 27 specialized visa applications. In many cases, these cheap rate labors from India displace computer programmers. Not only do they enter the job market this way, but US workers have to train them before they are given a pink slip? This is a very devious situation that is beneficial to employers, but utterly devious to those who end up jobless. One organization which has a reputable background is NUMBERSUSA.

    Numbersusa has great resources in the chambers of Washington and state assemblies were information is quickly expedited to them. Investigate their website for their inner knowledge expands on the commencing discussions on giving the 20 to 30 million plus illegal squatters a path to citizenship. Read about E-Verify being extended to 3 years, instead of being once again being tabled by anti-sovereignty Senator Harry Reid?

    That the Salvation army has disassociated itself from congregational religions and faith groups and does not endorse the National Association of Evangelicals’ recent lobbying for amnesty and for an increase in foreign labor importation. That Zogby International poll reveals that 56 percent of Mexicans believe that someone they know would try entering the United States illegally if the country was to offer legal status to illegal aliens. This just a few of the nasty arrangements our so-called politicians have in store for us. Another non-profit group is JUDICIAL WATCH with there main attention on political corruption in all levels of government.

    Judicial Watch is a watchdog over our government, legal, and judicial systems, the site posts a summary of the court cases they are pursuing along with related news stories. Currently on there site is the ACORN controversy. JW Statement on Arizona Attorney General Refusal to Take Action against Phoenix Police Chief for Receiving Illegal Pension Benefits and so much it nearly asphyxiates the mind? Learn about the supposedly non-existent North American Union. Information about the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) Do you really think that JW, is going to ruin its spotless reputation over NAU as a will-of –the-Wisp? Relating to the illegal immigration, JW Sues DHS for Documents on “Reforms” to 287(g) what is the Obama administration’s response to the success of this program? How Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano decided to implement “reforms” to weaken it as part of her comprehensive “review” of all border security policies. Judicial Watch, of course, wants to know everything about how and why this incomprehensible decision was made?
    In conclusion, be very aware of a—BLANKET AMNESTY—if enacted. Not only will millions more get past the border fence, but the costs cannot even be calculated with family unification-known as chain migration. A massive Armada of the old, young, mentally sick could be sponsored. The legalized sponsor in the majority of actions, never fulfill his financial commitment to his charges and they end up as a taxpayer’s expense. The CAPSWEB site is all about our rush towards OVERPOPULATION. The US Census Bureau have not denied that Americas population could climb now in its projections by a 50-percent increase in the domestic population by the year 2050, from 255 million to 383 million. The next 100 million will suffocate our ability, to maintain water, energy, food, communication, infrastructure and a balanced environment? It will lift out of reach any chance for a stable and sustainable population within the USA. It will also create horrific water shortages and exacerbate the energy and climate destabilization crises. My suggestion is GOOGLE keywords—not separated by comma’s, such as illegal immigration—costs—California and learn the frightening truth for yourself. Not the lies, propaganda that seems to permeate from the desks of Liberal editors?

      I know we are all going trough hard times now days but don’t use the Illegals as a punching bag and vent Your frustrations…You know that nobody without a valid SSA No.can get assistance from any all those agencies You mentioned,….On the other hand I don’t know where You live every body pays deductions like IRS,SSA,EED,etc,etc, but where I live including the illegals do pay all that mentioned,….With the difference that the illegals can’t and don’t get any benefits from any agency like You pointed out because of their legal status and fake SS No.So were is all that money deducted go????,….We all know were right,.So if You are so patriotic and want to do some about it I suggest You join the Minuteman,…We got a clear and present danger coming trough our borders from the south is drugs but is because of the huge appetite for them right????,…From the north we got the terrorists coming in and nobody mentions that,so far isn’t any known case about a illegal “Mexican” blowing buildings full of innocent people right????,…I suggest You go out,drive through the fields and find me a white,black or yellow person picking our fruit,crops,…By the way I’m
      not for illegal Immigration I just let the government come up with solution that is good for every body after all We are all humans,this world was created for all of us not just for one particular race,….Also if I good remember this was Indian & Mexican land all the others are invaders or descendants of them,….So get used to it because in a few years Latinos,Beaners,wetbacks,or whatever You call Us will be the majority and You can take that to the bank,….One last think screw Joe Arpaio he is Italian the Mexicans have more right to be here that him,….

      • Joe H.

        “whatever you call US?” If you are an illegal you don’t even have a say here, as far as I’m concerned. God Bless Joe Arapo!!!! I hope he lives to be 100 years old and is sheriff for the next 40 years!!!

        The cost of illegal immigrants to the American taxpayer
        1. $11 Billion to $22 billion is spent on welfare to illegal aliens each year by state governments. V

        2. $2.2 Billion dollars a year is spent on food assistance programs such as food stamps, WIC, and free school lunches for illegal aliens.

        3. $2.5 Billion dollars a year is spent on Medicaid for illegal aliens.

        4. $12 Billion dollars a year is spent on primary and secondary school education for children here illegally and they cannot speak a word of English!

        5. $17 Billion dollars a year is spent for education for the American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies.

        6. $3 Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens.

        7. 30% percent of all Federal Prison inmates are illegal aliens.

        8. $90 Billion Dollars a year is spent on illegal aliens for welfare social services by the American taxpayers.

        9. $200 Billion Dollars a year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal aliens.

        10. The illegal aliens in the United States have a crime rate that’s two and a half times that of white non-illegal aliens. In particular,their children, are going to make a huge additional crime problem in the US.

        11. During the year of 2005 there were 4 to 10 MILLION illegal aliens that crossed our southern border also, as many as 19,500 illegal aliens from terrorist countries.

        12. The National Policy Institute, “estimated that the total cost of mass deportation would be between $206 and $230 billion or an average cost of between $41 and $46 billion annually over a five year period.”

        13. In 2006 illegal aliens sent home $45 BILLION in remittances back to their countries of origin.

          Jeff, I am so surprised at you posting this undocumented crap. No where on the site did the author reference the site or source of these figures that the CBO, FBI, CIA, FISA, ICE and all the border states cannot come up with. We only have a range of totals for the illegal population that could be here, yet your buddy here is very specific with all his totals. You should write to him and tell him to contact the Congress and let them know he has the totals…. Even though he is not credentialed, I’m sure the government would be more than happy to use his figures. Jeff, you don’t normally fall for this type of stuff, what happened? Are you that desperate to have info to slam the illegals, or are you just trying to piss off the base?

          • JeffH

            AMNESTY means never having immigration enforcement!
            Those ‘undocumented’ are actually ‘highly documented’ with fraudulent documents our government readily accepts.
            There should be no debate over illegal invasion.

          • eyeswideopen

            Jeff, I repeat, I can’t find any back up for any of those reported statics. The last site you referenced doesn’t give any links or reference material either. Statics like those you quoted need verification from some authorized source.

        • JeffH

          What’s good for America’s poor working class
          is no longer even considered.

          That’s Why Congress Has Assisted
          Illegal Aliens In Stealing Twenty Million Jobs
          From The American Working Poor
          And now they are even giving them the SS
          benefits that WE earned by the sweat of our brows.

      • c.lee

        I didnt have to read very far to realize you were an illegall. However your statement about setting back and letting your govt officials handle everything concerning your future, how did that work out for ya. Obviously not very well because your here and not there. If your so content with all that why dont you go back. As far as you becomming the majority you dont know us ver well. So lets sit back and see how that works out for ya.

  • Sonny

    Obama wants healthcare for everyone. Then he will legalize 12 to 20 million illegal aliens giving them full goverenment entitlements. Illegal aliens now cost American taxpayers billions of dollars per year. Education, free school lunches, healthcare, wic programs, incarceration, time in local jails awaiting trail, lawyers to defend them. I understand how socialist like Pelosi, Reid, Schumer, Gene Green Olympia Snowe and others keep getting elected, they take care of their constiuencies, what I don’t understand is how a liar and socialist like Obama got elected to be President. I agree we had better wake up America while we still have a country. Let’s all try to make a difference in 2010 and 2012.

  • Joe H.

    I agree with everything you say, but please shorten your posts just a little? Thanks! Sheriff Arapo is swearing he will keep up his arrests of illegals and I say hats off to him. May God keep him safe as he goes about his job. I have followed his, shall we say exploits since he first came to the news and I applaud his efforts loudly in my home town.

    • JeffH

      I second that motion.

  • BigIron

    My opinion of the general enforcement of laws is as follows:

    We are “a nation of laws under the rule of law” and, as such, laws need to be enforced by the appropriate authority or they need to be repealed and be removed from the books. The enforcement of a law cannot be allowed to be an arbitrary decision by the enforcing agency as to when it will and when it will not enforce that law. If more laws are needed in order to control the ILLEGALS problem perhaps they could be crated at the state and / or local levels.

    If the agencies / bureaus / entities charged with enforcing those laws (at whatever level) either refuse to enforce those laws or cannot enforce those laws for whatever reasons then it becomes the province, the right, and, perhaps, even the duty of the People, themselves, after having exhausted all reasonable legal recourse with the authorities charged with the enforcing that law or laws, to take upon themselves the responsibility for the enforcement of that law, including both the letter and the spirit of the law being enforced.

    Enforcement of laws by the People themselves (when necessary only) must be done in a proper, orderly, humane manner while using the minimum force necessary to enforce the pertinent law or laws. This requirement does not, however, preclude the use of any level of force required up to and including the use of deadly force. It requires only that the minimum force be used that is consistent with the safety of those enforcing those laws and the safety of the population at large. The property of the “lawbreakers” must be respected; property taken must be protected, available, and returned to the owner in original condition upon proper order.

    Some will be tempted to call such action “vigilante justice” but it is not actually “vigilante justice” provided all reasonable attempts to have laws enforced by the appropriate authorities have previously been exhausted and the enforcement of the law or laws are carried out in a proper manner (not a mob).

    It would be imperative, should a body choose to take on the enforcement of a law or laws, to document all that was done to try to have the authorities enforce the (specific) law and, in light of the authority’s failure to enforce that law, what actions were carried out by the people in the enforcement of that law. The usurped authority’s anger and displeasure will probably make for attempted prosecution due to pressure from the offended authority/s.

      Let me know when you will start this effort. I want to invest in a couple of morgues and funeral homes, as the killing will be massive. I can just see a bunch of rt wingers trying to play police man. yep, just let me know when the start date is. I also want to capture this on video, so people can actually see the rt in action.

        Back in the 1700s, America had to endure its in-house, wannabe Brits and turncoats. It seems we still have some in our midst. When we had real leaders long ago, many Brits and their camp-followers fled to Canada.
        So where are you headed when the stuff hits the fan? Patriotism, like common sense, can’t be taught. If you don’t already have it, you never will. Kindly consider Mexico. Don’t forget to take all of your Washington friends with you. Remember, even in Mexico, they will expect you to learn their language.

        • eyeswideopen

          Nay, S.C., I will stay and help put back my country to the original concept of equal rights and freedoms for everybody, not just the conservatives. I will fight to make sure they don’t change the Constitution to mandate religion and will work tiredlessly to insure at least a two party system and not just one ,like they would like to have.

  • Joe H.

    I would agree with what you say if you can guarantee it will be carried out as you say it will. Not all of these crossers are murderers. Some are children following their parents and have no say in the matter. To those parents I say don’t come here if you can’t do it the legal way. Come here legal and I will offer you an open hand of friendship. Come here illegally and I will help them kick your butt back across the border!!! I have known some very good legals in my life of 58 years and a few bad. the good legals far outweigh the bad legals. Work to change YOUR country before you try to destroy ours!!!! We had to fight to take our country from the British and you can support new leaders also. Try it, it builds integrity!

  • http://windowsinternetexplorer gary r. heiser summerville s. c.

    i think alot of americans better get their eyes checked. i was refused food stamps. and i’am a disable vietnam era vet. uncalled for. and DSS tells me i make too much $$$ per month. sure / my take home is $ 863.00 per month. and i have go cash advance each month just to buy food. the system is broken. under our constitution illegals in this country have no rights. in fact they should be rouned-up and taken back where they came from. all of them. if our local / state / and federal government cannot control this problem. i think it is time for the average citizen to do it themselves. screw the department of homeland security. americans should go to border and patrol them. canada border and the mexican border. since our politicians will not do their job. that we elected them into office for. ps. that was round them all up. and deport them. our country is already broke. millions of americans that are born here cannot find work. can’t wait until november 2010. vote them all out. that don’t support the constitution of the united states. god bless america.

  • Robert

    I didn’t know we had an illegal imigration problem. According to Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, it’s all in our minds and part of the extreme rights way of installing fear in us. Now Nancy and Harry wouldn’t lie, would they? And our President, he’ll appoint a new czar to address the issue and get back to us later. He has a very important commitment to meet in New York today.

  • Joe H.

    I wonder if THIS czar will be a communist too? Nancy P-lousy can take Dingy Harry and they both can take a flying leap. They are selling this country down the river. The U.S. debt is making our money worthless and what is their answer? Print more money and spend more!!!!

    “Report: U.S. Controls Only 10 Percent Of Its Border”

    And zero percent of its interior.

    Here is my two-step plan.

    We may have to kiss the keisters of the illegal invaders, it is still a felony to aid and abet them.

    If some honest men and women in law enforcement, would go after the lowlifes in the government, business and the general population that have been aiding and abetting them, by the time they had enough of a handle on the job to raise their heads and look around, I don’t think many illegal aliens would still be left.

    We don’t need any new laws to do this either. Just some honest men and women that take their oaths of office seriously!

    Finding them is the first step!

    Federal Immigration and Nationality Act
    Section 8 USC 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv)(b)(iii)

    “Any person who . . . encourages or induces an alien to . . . reside . . . knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such . . . residence is . . . in violation of law, shall be punished as provided . . . for each alien in respect to whom such a violation occurs . . . fined under title 18 . . . imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both.”
    Section 274 felonies under the federal Immigration and Nationality Act, INA 274A(a)(1)(A):
    A person (including a group of persons, business, organization, or local government) commits a federal felony when she or he:
    * assists an alien s/he should reasonably know is illegally in the U.S. or who lacks employment authorization, by transporting, sheltering, or assisting him or her to obtain employment, or
    * encourages that alien to remain in the U.S. by referring him or her to an employer or by acting as employer or agent for an employer in any way, or
    * knowingly assists illegal aliens due to personal convictions.

    • Banker

      Does Nancy and Harry know about this right wing legislation? Maybe someone in the mainstream media should ask them about this and why it hasn’t solved the illegal immigration fiasco before they start working on health reform. Then again, BHO MMM MMM MMM!!!! He gave it all away MMM MMM MMM!!!!

  • Terry Bell

    Thousands of years ago the chinese were able to build a great wall to keep out the invading Mongol hordes. But our government with all it’s supposed “new tecnology” is unable to do so today.
    This is not a rhetorical question guys. It requires an answer!

    • Loreen

      If there were no cookies in the cookie jar the child wouldn’t go there. If there were no jobs here for illegal aliens there would be none. 20 years ago I worked for a plumber who had known me since I was born and we attended the same church. He insisted on seeing my original S S card before hiring me. What happened to that law? If that law were enforced we would need no fence.

  • James

    Our borders are not being protected because the powers-that-be want a world without borders. President ‘W’ Bush advocated widening our southern border to 150 miles, as a free-trade zone. That was to be an intermediate step towards no border at all. There are now border guards in jail for upholding our immigration laws. Barring another Declaration of Independence I see nothing that will stop these One-Worlders.

    • Banker

      The jailing of those two border guards is a true American travesty. They have since been released. I believe every American should hang their head in shame for what was done to the two. The voters who elected these insane politicians and appointed those knuclehead judges and prosecutors should not hang their heads in shame. They should put a bullet in the chamber, point it to their head and pull the trigger. If they don’t die, then they should hang their head in shame.

  • Norm

    Walls, as in the Berlin wall, are great but they are costly and don’t work. What we need is jail sentences and very large fines for people who employ illegals. Oddly, many people who hire them as semi-slave house servants and grounds keepers are the very people who complain the most.

    • Harry J Schaubel

      The Chinese Great Wall was built to keep the unwanted OUT.
      The Berlin Wall was built to keep them IN!

      Major difference there, Norm

  • Joe H.

    How do you know a wall or carbon steel razor wire fence won’t work here? It hasn’t been tried yet!!! The money has been allocated for about 10 years and only like 150 miles has been built. 50 miles of that were thanks to Tancredo. He kept at the congress and poked and prodded till it was built. When Tom tried for more they stopped him at every turn!!! We will never know if it will work until it is built! Run raids every day and put ALL male illegals to work on the fence, make it 25 foot tall, fine ALL businesses that hire them to pay for it, then deport them and let them know that they will be put out maintaining it 16 hrs a day if they are caught again. Bet the number drops dramatically!!!!

  • Dale, Oklahoma

    What I still don’t understand is how the Chinese,
    THOUSANDS of years ago could build a “great wall”
    ( over dozens of decades ) WITHOUT the machines and
    technology in engineering and construction that we
    have today, and we still can’t keep illegals out???

    I guess it’s not a question of ‘can’t’, it’s a matter
    of ‘won’t’. As they said in the intro to the old TV
    show the “Six Million Dollar Man”, “We have the
    technology”. The problem is we don’t have the WILL
    and Congress doesn’t have the balls and We The People
    haven’t got pissed off enough to kick Congress in their
    aforementioned TINY testicles.

  • Banker

    On second thoughts, just shoot them and be done with this mess.

  • California70

    Wow, you guys write some good stuff here.

    How about the for Starters…the government stops this “anchor baby” business. When the illegal has a baby here, our government makes the baby LEGAL. This is a HUGE part of the problem.

    I live in Los Angeles, and I know for a fact that South Koreans come here to have their babies, who AT BIRTH, become LEGAL AMERICAN CITIZENS! These women then go back to South Korea. If they want to come to the United States, they have an ANCHOR BABY. A lot of other countries are doing this too. But keep in mind, it’s mainly the wealthy of those countries, because they are the ones who have the money to travel here and can get the temporary visas.

    We not only now have to worry about all the Illegal Mexicans, but all the Asians who send their pregnant wives here to have their babies.

    Why is nobody talking about this problem.

    When are we going to wise-up in Country?


  • Curtis

    This is the kind of crap journalism I’m talking about. The Department of Homeland Security “…controls only 894 miles, a bit more than 10%”. That sounds pretty sad when you say that there’s 8,607 miles of American land borders. But it’s SPIN!
    According to just about every source I looked at, America has 7458 miles of land based borders. (I used this for my stats ) So when the story says America has 8607 miles of land borders, IT’S WRONG. Someone has added 1200 miles of imaginary border to get you worked up. Did you bother checking the facts or did you just gulp down the kool-aid?
    Did anyone bother to ask which 894 miles are under control? Are you really concerned about the 1538 miles along the Alaska – Yukon border? Are there a lot of illegal aliens and terrorists sneaking across THAT border? So put down the kool-aid and let’s remove 1538 miles of border that are controlled very well by terrain, eight months of bitterly cold (arctic) winter and not a lot of roads.
    That leaves 5920 miles of border to “control”. Is Canada a problem? Are there a lot of illegal aliens coming from Canada? Unless you want to just swallow everything you’re given, you have to remove the remaining 3987 miles of Canadian border.
    Here are the facts so far. The US has 7458 miles of land based borders, 5525 of those miles are shared with Canada. That leaves 1933 miles which is the US-Mexico border. Wikipedia says the border is 1969 miles long and that it’s the most frequently crossed international border in the world with 250 million people crossing it annually. If you were going to “control” a border it would probably be the Mexican border you’d want to focus on. IF you “control” 894 miles of the 1933 miles (or 1969 miles) of the Mexican border it’s NOT “… a bit more than 10%.” It’s a LOT MORE than 10%. It’s actually closer to 50%! (It’s actually 45%.) But that doesn’t promote your particular SPIN. “Almost half” just doesn’t make this bull$h!t partisan hack job of a news story very effective.
    How many people questioned this article? How many people checked the facts? How people many just swallowed the kool-aid and launched off an ill-informed rant? How many people are sick of the spin?

  • Harry J Schaubel

    Here are some interesting comparisons:

    Cross the North Korea border illegally. 12 Years Hard Labor.
    Cross the Iranian border illegally & be detained indefintely.
    Cross the Afghan border illegally & be shot.
    Cross the Asudi Arabian border illegally & be jailed.
    Cross the Chinese Border illegally & may never be heard from again.
    Cross the Venezuelan border illegally & be branded a spy.
    Cross the Cuban border illeglly and be thrown in political prison.

    Cross the US border illeglly & you get a job, drivers license, Social Security Card, Welfare, Food Stamps, Credit Cards, Subsidized rent or the right to buy a house, Free Education, Free Health Care, Lobbyists in Washington, Billions of public documents printed in your own language (Press 2 for English). The right to carry your countries flag while protesting that you don’t get enuf respect, and your kids born here are automatically US Citizens, and in some instances you can even VOTE!

    Yes. I copied that from an email but after Googling the info to verify it.

    Here’s an idea. Spend 200 Bil to round them all up and ship them back home or spend 200 Bil every year to keep them here.

    Anchor Baby? Fine. The kid is a citizen but you’re not. Leave it here and go home or take it with you!

    Employers who hire them should not only be fined but JAILED!

    But that’s all just a pipedream. Congress is so worried about being Politically Correct that they would NEVER do that. Even the Mexican Gov’t is protesting the treatment of Illegal Aliens here. Can’t P.O. them now can we.

    America was built by Immigrants. They came here, LEARNED THE LANGUAGE, applied for and were granted citizenship. Why can’t those who cross our southern border do the same?
