New Mini-Documentary Shows Continuing Impact Of Illegal Immigration In Arizona Border Regions

July 22, 2010 by  

New Mini-Documentary Shows Continuing Impact Of Illegal Immigration In Arizona Border RegionsIn the midst of the heated debate about the new Arizona immigration law and the need for a comprehensive reform at the Federal level, a policy think tank has released a web-based movie that demonstrates the impact of illegal aliens in the Grand Canyon State.

Released by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), “Hidden Cameras on the Arizona Border 2: Drugs, Guns and 850 Illegal Aliens” is a 10-minute long mini-documentary that illustrates the problem of illegal crossing as well as gun- and drug-smuggling along the section of the United States-Mexico border that includes Nogales, the Coronado National Forest and the Casa Grande Sector.

The center says the film shows that illegal immigrant activity is escalating and that U.S. law enforcement appears increasingly unable to deal with it. Moreover, it suggests that environmental devastation along the border continues.

The new documentary is a followup to “Hidden Cameras on the Arizona Border: Coyotes, Bears and Trails,” which CIS says has been viewed by more than 52,000 visitors to date.

On July 29 the controversial new Arizona immigration law—which was signed by Governor Jan Brewer last April—is scheduled to come into effect. It gives law enforcement officers new powers to request identification from individuals that may be reasonably suspected to be in the U.S. illegally.ADNFCR-1961-ID-19899291-ADNFCR

    How is it possible to have a prez, a vice prez and a Congress full of two-legged jackasses who don’t understand that drug-smuggling, gun-running and the willing protection of hordes of illegals are CRIMINAL ACTS that threaten America? Are progressives and their camp-followers even more retarded now than they were a year and a half ago?
    Mr. Obama, if you are SERIOUS about NEW JOBS, send a special cadre of helpers to Arizona, and get them to clean up the tons of TRASH and filth brought into Arizona by MILLIONS of INVADERS. Even if mimimum wage is the best you can do, you can put THOUSANDS of people to WORK in Arizona.
    Remember, your Mama Earth-loving pals are always watching. Here’s a great chance to prove that you
    do more than take huge campaign contributions from every group in your big tent. America is waiting, as your poll ratings continue to PLUMMET. Maybe some media hookers can actually make you look “good.” Do you CARE? America is waiting and ‘hoping’ that you will ‘change’ your ways.

      SC,That would be a good idea, it would keep workers busy for years. most people don’t know the magnitude of the trash and the impact on the wild life there, especially the Coronado Nat. Forest it would take years to clean it up.

    • Maverick

      Dear s.c. I have a suggestion that would not only solve the problem, but would probably not be accepted by our ‘liberal’ administration. I was a corrections officer back in Ohio, ( I am an Arizonan’ now.) I worked at a medium security prison for about 3 years. Thinking back on those years, I recall the security which surrounded the ‘borders’ of the prison. Why couldn’t the same be applied to our borders in AZ. This prison had two fences – one was 12 feet high, the other 16 feet high. Both were topped with triple strand razor wire. At each corner was a guard tower. We were armed with .38 Special pistols, had a Winchester model 94 .30-30, and a Winchester 12 gauge shotgun with 00 buck shot. The towers were within visible range of each other. Needless to say, there were no successful escapes. Plus, there were roving patrol vehicles running between the towers. Why couldn’t our border fences be designed the same way? And, with the same orders we had ,,, ‘SHOOT TO KILL’.

      • 45caliber

        The orders are “SHOOT TO STOP” now. But if he happens to die as he stops, then he stopped.

    • 45caliber

      s c:
      He could also hire a large number of Border Patrol agents to be able to do a better job of patrolling the border to keep them out. And those jobs would be permanent.

      You got that right, he’s doing a good job of that. like it’s all part of his plan.

  • Al Sieber

    Living in rural Ariz.you get to see whats going on up front and personal. my friends who live less then a 1/4 mile from the border get to see bails of pot and other drugs thrown over the fence for pickup, border patrol chasing vehicles and people on foot around, shootouts and yelling and screaming all night. people coming to their houses all hours of the night and day asking for food, water, money etc. being threatened by drug cartel members not to call border the patrol, I keep telling them to move up to my place I have plenty of room, they say they’re staying, this is my home and it’s paid for. I see the same thing, only on a much smaller scale. the Govt. wants our borders open for their agenda.

    • dan of arizona

      hey al I think that it should be open season at the border but you no how that turns out we get sued or jailed.we have mexican mafia here that has the cops on the payroll a friend of mine was executed for complaining about the hords of people going in an out of this house across the street from him the cops refused to do anything one night a couple of suburbans showed up and the next thing he was dead suicide is there explanation case closed but we all knew him very well and the way he kiled was not suicide by any way of the meaning. so i hope your friends sleep with their guns its getting alittle hostile out there

      • 45caliber

        dan: To them it was suicide. He opened his mouth.

      • Al Sieber

        dan of arizona, yes Dan they are well armed, but my one friend lives alone and his dog is getting old and doesn’t hear very well, he lives in a small trailer and keeps his beer outside in a small refrigator and their always stealing his beer and food, I talked to him today and he said he would move here. he was threatened 3 months ago after Bob Krentz was murdered, they said him and his neighbors were next and anyone else who called the border patrol on them, and they had a list. he was involved in a shoot out down there some years back and someone was killed and he had a visit from some Fed. Authority who said he wasn’t safe there. and the other people live about 800′ from him, they are all vets with combat experience but when you’re out numbered and out gunned you don’t have much of a chance. I live in N.W. AZ. near the AZ.,Nv., Calif. border in the middle of nowhere, and they come through here every other night. we have a small mining operation and are making some good money, but I’m alone in the summer, everyone comes back in the fall. I think the new Az. law is gonna be stalled for a long time with these lawsuits, they’re gonna try their best to stall it until the Nov. elections are over, then amnesty. John McCain is making back room deals with the democrats for amnesty, he should of been out of there years ago. the citizens of this country should come first, their wellbeing and safety. this president is a traitor, he ignores his oath of office, and the wishes of the people. sometimes I think these liberals are communists. I hope you don’t have to put up with this crap where you are in AZ. dan, they have Mexican Mafia and drug cartel members in every small town and major city in AZ. and other states too, if you don’t like it you’re called a racist, I’m sick of this racist crap. a lot of people have no idea whats going on,well, “keep your powder dry”.

        • http://personalliberty rob

          I hope AZ is seeing right through John McCain…If the people of AZ vote him back into office…the FOX has the chickens for OBAMA’s amnesty…FLIP-FLOP – FLIP-FLOP – FLIP-FLOP McCain…Also, where does Hayworth stand on the ILLEGALS???? Demo’s or Repub’s — question them…ACTIONS will speak LOUDER than WORDS…Good Luck AZ!!! Hang in there…

          • AZRanger

            Thank you for this opportunity to mention that JD Hayworth fully supports SB1070, Enforcement first of all Federal Immigration laws, enforce Artical 14 of our Constitution (absolutely, no anchor babies), all illegals will return to the back of the line which is the country of their origin. He is supported by Sheriff Joe Arapio and the creators of SB1070. You can read his postions on all issues at: http://www.jdforsenate.com/issues

            Most can see through John McCain’s liberal RINO positions and voting record over the years. It’s so obvious his pursuit of a Kennedy – Byrd legacy, leaving this world while still a “US Senator”. Unfortunately, 40% of Arizonians are still blinded. Even believing the third canditate: Jim Deakins can win. The only choice is JD Hayworth and the only one to retire McCain.

    My great grandfather watched as his friends died in the Civil War.

    My father watched as his friends died in WW II.

    And I watched as my friends died in Vietnam .

    None of them died for the Mexican Flag. Everyone died for the American flag.

    Texas high school students raised a Mexican flag on a school flag pole, other students took it down. Guess who was expelled…the students who took it down.

    California high school students were sent home on Cinco de Mayo, because they wore T-shirts with the American flag printed on them.

    Enough is enough.

    This message needs to be viewed by every American; and every American needs to stand up for America .

    We’ve bent over to appease the America-haters long enough. I’m taking a stand.

    I’m standing up because the hundreds of thousands who died fighting in wars for this country, and for the American flag.

    If you agree, stand up with me. If you disagree, please let me know. I will gladly remove you from my e-mail list.

    And shame on anyone who tries to make this message racist.

    AMERICANS, stop giving away Your RIGHTS!

    Let me make this clear! THIS IS MY COUNTRY!

    This statement DOES NOT mean I’m against immigration!

    YOU ARE WELCOME HERE, IN MY COUNTRY, welcome to come legally:

    1. Get a sponsor!

    2. Learn the LANGUAGE, as immigrants have in the past !

    3. Live by OUR rules!

    4. Get a job!

    5. Pay YOUR Taxes!

    6. No Social Security until you have earned it and paid for it !

    7. NOW find a place to lay your head!

    If you don’t want to forward this for fear of offending someone, then YOU’RE PART OF THE PROBLEM !

    We’ve gone so far the other way . . . Bent over backwards not to offend anyone.

    Only AMERICANS seems to care when American Citizens are being offended !

    WAKE UP America ! ! !

    If you do not Pass this on, may your fingers cramp!

      Mr. Graham, What this country Needs now is a Strong leader who will stand Up for What we Know is Right. What this Country has not realized is…There are Many millions of people who feel exactly as we do, but do not have a collective force behind them they can rely on to ACT . How do you get to This Point. anyway..of rallying the people to the point of acting and not Just using words ? I want the answer, myself. I do as you are doing…the best way I know how…to stand up for my country, and to stop this ‘under-mining ‘on all quarters..to corrode it. You must not Quit doing what you are doing..for soon, we are going to have The People More than just willing to Speak up and out !! Thanx..VGF

      • 45caliber

        One of the purposes of the MSM – as they see it – is to destroy the reputation and image of any leader the people might wish to follow that does not go along with the socialism the MSM wants.

        As a result, (Palin is an example) any leader who might organize and lead the people is torn apart with the smallest detail exposed to the world. Most good people don’t have an interest in that.

        Further, anyone who makes an effort to organize anything the government doesn’t like risks being arrested. There are government agents who troll these sites looking for just such people. I’ve seen several over the last several weeks begging for someone ELSE to take a lead so they can arrest someone.

        I suspect that any armed attempt to correct our problems will come when the government sends their brown shirts to confiscate our weapons. After the word gets around about a few dead people who shot back, the rest will decide to move as one.

        • meteorlady

          Funny I went to a Tea Party rally to see what it was about. I found some pretty nice people and some pretty decent speakers, and so everyone was not “WHITE” – there were Black, Brown and Yellow there.

          Most people had made up signs, hand done and crude but effective. About half way through the news media showed up and started walking through the audience. About 10 minutes later a bus load of people came holding up racist signs and fanning out among the crowd. The signs were printed commercially. The news media, of course, jumped on this with both feet. Some of us asked why they were not talking to the regular people there and that we believed these new people carrying racists signs were organized and had another agenda. The answer from the news media people was that this was more of a story than normal, everyday people and their neighbors standing respectfully and listening to speakers. Sort of made me sick to know that journalism has gone so far off track in this country.

    • Ellen

      You are so right. My ancestors came from Ireland after a long wait. My husband’s ancestors came from Germany and they too waited a long time before they were admitted. Both families became citizens and learned Engish. They all loved this country and were proud to have become Americans. The intruders screaming for their “rights” have none. They became criminals the minute they crossed the border. Like all criminals they should be prosecuted. The pictures of the illegals now throwing rocks at Border Agents are potentially deadly. One agent needed 27 staples in his scalp after being hit with a rock as he stepped out of his trucki. The agents should have the right to shoot. As an American, I have the right to shoot anyone who is trying to kill me.

    Stop Illegal Immigration NOW. Why is it that such a high percentange of Americans want it stopped but our government is doing nothing to stop it. I thought democracy was of the people, for the people and by the people. The people have spoken! Do something like Arizona has done.

    • Ellen

      Ruby: the United States IS NOT A DEMOCRACY!! It is a Constitutional Republic. Where a democracy is rule by the majority and no individual rights are protected, a Constitutional Republic DOES protect (is supposed to) your individual rights. The framers of the Constitution abhorred a democracy and such a scheme is not a stable form of government. It becomes a dictatorship of some kind when the majority have squashed what is left of the minority.

        If you look at the list of funders from the La Raza 2009 Annual Report, you will understand that big corporations DO NOT seem to want illegal immigration/immigrants to go away. Check out that report, page 28-29.
        They’re all sharing 15-20 million Latino consumers who buy their products and services or worse, work for them in some capacity. It’s all about corporate profits and trade.

    • 45caliber

      Ruby:
      Several states are trying. Several others are watching to see what the government does.

      Actually the AZ law is not unConstitutional since it copies the Federal version. All it REALLY says is that the state will assign its law enforcement to HELP the feds.

      Oblama kind of exposed his hand when he met with Senator Kyl. Kyl asked why the government couldn’t go ahead and seal the border. Oblama said something like, “But if I seal the border, you in Congress won’t have a reason to pass my amnesty bill!”

      When Reagon agreed to allow the amnesty back when he was President, he agreed on the condition that the Democratic Congress would seal the border. The Democrats did – but once the amnesty was in place, they renigged on the deal. That’s why we have the problem now. And the more that Oblama talks about amnesty, the more people are slipping over the border so they can take advantage of it.

      • meteorlady

        My sister worked at immigration during Reagan’s amnesty. Almost EVERY single illegal they picked up had forged rent receipts, employment records, etc. in order to apply. It was estimated at the time that of the 2 million or so that obtained amnesty 83% did so through fraud (there were not enough people to process and investigate the claims). Of those, 53% settled in California and proceeded to have more children then they could afford, did not learn English in most cases, and went immediately to the welfare office for their handouts. 10 years later a study was done and it was found that we also got around 1 million more through petitions for relatives. It was also found that most were still on some type of public assistance and were costing the American taxpayer around $10 million per year in 1986 dollars. I can only imagine what that has ballooned to now since most of their children and grandchildren are on the government dole.

        You are right – they border was supposed to be sealed. They are ignoring us until there is a crisis and then they will step in with cries that we need to pass immigration reform immediately and they will seal the borders.

  • Rex

    The reason the Bush and Obama Administrationss are not doing anything about this illegal immigration is because it’s all part of a larger scheme. It’s all part of their New World Order. As far as the elite and the current and past two administrations there are NO borders. Why do you think that Bush and Obama have been meeting with the presidents of Mexico and Canada? The whole ruse of this administration wants to protect our borders is clearly proven due to the fact that he nor anyone in his administration is doing anything about it. There are no borders in the North American Union (NAU). This is why this administration is suing Arizona. That’s why folks, wake up! There is NO soveriegn US anymore according to the government. That is why they are so hostile against our former Constitution and borders and law. And they’ve done it right under our noses.

      If we are indeed the North American Union how come we cannot apply same to Mexico and wander into their country?

      • 45caliber

        You can wander into Mexico – as long as they don’t catch you. Then you can expect rape, robbery, assault, and death – not necessarily all at the same time but certainly at least one of them.

        • Al Sieber

          That is a true fact, I lived down there and worked for a American mining co. in the state of Sonora 2 years ago, my friend has a silver mining operation in Sonora also, he asked me to go down there with him 3 weeks ago, I said no way. he got as far as San Luis and was advised not to go any further, the village was taken over by the drug cartels. yes, you can get robbed, raped and murdered easy.I’ve been down there hundreds of times, never again. especially if you have AZ. license plates. they really like beheading people and using their heads as bowling balls, and you can’t be armed down there either. lovely culture, this violence is moving north quickly, but they just want jobs Americans won’t do.

    • 45caliber

      There is at least one border Congressman from Texas who has had a bill in Washington for over ten years now. Can’t remember his name.

      The idea is that over 90% of the people in Mexico live below our poverty level. So he wants to make Mexico a part of the US so they can all draw Welfare.

      Now doesn’t that make you proud of the mentality of at least one Congressman?

      • meteorlady

        Ya and the Major of Houston that is running for governor advocates his city as a free zone for them. Nice, and I think Texas now has so many Mexicans that they will vote for him. Bad BAD BAD……

    Out of the Mouth of Babes >>>Come the Tough truth. Tho you can`t very well refer to the disheartened citizens of Arizona as “Babes.. not when ‘Sitting Ducks ‘is more like appropriate. Arizona is not the only State that is being undermined by this influx ( Invasion ) Of illegal aliens. Yes. Jan Brewer is the best Woman for the Job.. She has Begun with the only way she can… And It is about time All of the Other border states did the same ( And That would be a real good beginning towards salvaging the mess that has been propagated against all legal citizens of this Country. It is past-due time the Middle States ( And beyond ) Realize that , tho Gov. Brewer is determined to clean up her State, The illegal aliens will simply Head North and East and ..even towards the already Bogged-down state of California ?? So..Folks. Stop hindering the Lawful efforts She is making..And for Gods` sake ..Join her in your state, as well . What are you waiting for ? For more mayhem like we already know is going on > Wake UP ! Obama has No intentions of “Cleaning up his act.’ He is too far down to come back up. If he did the right thing for the US of A…he would have followed thru with his Pretty promises he Made while he was ”stomping for the presidency !” Close The Borders to All illegals …Send Back all the thirteen million who are already on this side of Mexicos` ” Non-Border” throw out that ‘anchor babe Shmit’with the bath water, ( A brand new anchor born every ten months equals added burdens onto the legal tax-payers ) and Then..Start protecting the American Peoples` hard won rights. Don`t you know this Situation cannot be allowed to continue ? All Americans are NOT woosies to be trampled on. It has to be Stopped..by ‘hook or crook.’ Right ON ! Gov. Jan Brewer !! VGF

    • 45caliber

      The last I heard about 17 states have plans to adopt the same laws. But Texas – and others – have a legislature that meets next year – not this one. That may be part of the reason they haven’t done it yet.

      The border states are not the only ones with illegal problems although California is the best known next the AZ right now. Even some states in New England have this problem.

    by Robert A. Hall/
    cid:1.4250312089@web53405.mail.re2.yahoo.com

    I’m 63. Except for one semester in college when jobs were scarce and a six-month period when I was between jobs, but job-hunting every day, I’ve worked, hard, since I was 18. Despite some health challenges, I still put in 50-hour weeks,and haven’t called in sick in seven or eight years. I make a good salary, but I didn’t inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, there’s no retirement in sight, and I’m tired. Very tired.

    I’m tired of being told that I have to “spread the wealth” to people who don’t have my work ethic. I’m tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy to earn it.

    I’m tired of being told that I have to pay more taxes to “keep people in their homes.” Sure, if they lost their jobs or got sick, I’m willing to help. But if they bought McMansions at three times the price of our paid-off, $250,000 condo, on one-third of my salary, then let the left-wing Congress-critters who passed Fannie and Freddie and the Community Reinvestment Act that created the bubble help them with their own money.

    I’m tired of being told how bad America is by left-wing millionaires like Michael Moore, George Soros and Hollywood Entertainers who live in luxury because of the opportunities America offers. In thirty years, if they get their way, the United States will have the economy of Zimbabwe , the freedom of the press of China , the crime and violence of Mexico , the tolerance for Christian people of Iran , and the freedom of speech of Venezuela .

    I’m tired of being told that Islam is a “Religion of Peace,” when every day I can read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and daughters for their family “honor”; of Muslims rioting over some slight offense; of Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren’t “believers”; of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for “adultery”; of Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Qur’an and Shari’a law tells them to.

    I’m tired of being told that “race doesn’t matter” in the post-racial world of Obama, when it’s all that matters in affirmative action jobs, lower college admission and graduation standards for minorities (harming them the most), government contract set-asides, tolerance for the ghetto culture of violence and fatherless children that hurts minorities more than anyone, and in the appointment of U.S.Senators from Illinois.

    I think it’s very cool that we have a black president and that a black child is doing her homework at the desk where Lincoln wrote the Emancipation Proclamation. I just wish the black president was Condi Rice, or someone who believes more in freedom and the individual and less arrogantly of an all-knowing government.

    I’m tired of a news media that thinks Bush’s fundraising and inaugural expenses were obscene, but that think Obama’s, at triple the cost, were wonderful; that thinks Bush exercising daily was a waste of presidential time, but Obama exercising is a great example for the public to control weight and stress; that picked over every line of Bush’s military records, but never demanded that Kerry release his; that slammed Palin, with two years as governor, for being too inexperienced for VP, but touted Obama with three years as
    senator as potentially the best president ever. Wonder why people are dropping their subscriptions or switching to Fox News? Get a clue. I didn’t vote for Bush in 2000, but the media and Kerry drove me to his camp in 2004.

    I’m tiredof being told that out of “tolerance for other cultures” we must let Saudi Arabia use our oil money to fund mosques and mandrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in America , while no American group is allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia to teach love and tolerance.

    I’m tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which no one is allowed to debate. My wife and I live in a two-bedroom apartment and carpool together five miles to our jobs. We also own a three-bedroom condo where our daughter and granddaughter live. Our carbon footprint is about 5% of Al Gore’s, and if you’re greener than Gore, you’re green enough.

    I’m tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses while they tried to fight it off? I don’t think Gay people choose to be Gay, but I damn sure think druggies chose to take drugs. And I’m tired of harassment from cool people treating me like a freak when I tell them I never tried marijuana.

    I’m tired of illegal aliens being called “undocumented workers,” especially the ones who aren’t working, but are living on welfare or crime. What’s next? Calling drug dealers, “Undocumented Pharmacists”? And, no, I’m not against Hispanics. Most of them are Catholic, and it’s been a few hundred years since Catholics wanted to kill me for my
    religion. I’m willing to fast track for citizenship any Hispanic person, who can speak English, doesn’t have a criminal record and who is self-supporting without family on welfare, or who serves honorably for three years in our military…. Those are the citizens we need.

    I’m tired of latte liberals and journalists, who would never wear the uniform of the Republic themselves, or let their entitlement-handicapped kids near a recruiting station, trashing our military. They and their kids can sit at home, never having to make split-second decisions under life and death circumstances, and bad mouth better people than themselves. Do bad things happen in war? You bet. Do our troops sometimes misbehave? Sure. Does this compare with the atrocities that were the policy of our enemies for the last fifty years and still are? Not even close. So here’s the deal. I’ll let myself be subjected to all the humiliation and abuse that was heaped on terrorists at Abu Ghraib or Gitmo, and the critics can let themselves be subject to captivity by the Muslims, who tortured and beheaded Daniel Pearl in Pakistan, or the Muslims who tortured and murdered Marine Lt. Col. William Higgins in Lebanon, or the Muslims who ran the blood-spattered Al Qaeda torture rooms our troops found in Iraq, or the Muslims who cut off the heads of schoolgirls in Indonesia, because the girls were Christian. Then we’ll compare notes. British and American soldiers are the only troops in history that civilians came to for help and handouts, instead of hiding from in fear.

    I’m tired of people telling me that their party has a corner on virtue and the other party has a corner on corruption. Read the papers; bums are bipartisan. And I’m tired of people telling me we need bipartisanship. I live in Illinois , where the “Illinois Combine” of Democrats has worked to loot the public for years. Not to mention the tax cheats in Obama’s cabinet.

    I’m tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of both parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful mistakes, when we all know they think their only mistake was getting caught. I’m tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor.

    Speaking of poor, I’m tired *of hearing people with air-conditioned homes, color TVs and two cars called poor. The majority of Americans didn’t have that in 1970, but we didn’t know we were “poor.” The poverty pimps have to keep changing the definition of poor to keep the dollars flowing.

    I’m real tired of people who don’t take responsibility for their lives and actions. I’m tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination or big-whatever for their problems.

    Yes, I’m damn tired. But I’m also glad to be 63. Because, mostly, I’m not going to have to see the world these people are making. I’m just sorry for my granddaughter.

            Hemingway (the author) was a mercenary for over 30 years all over the world. He wrote many of his books between battles.

            When he was older a reporter asked him why he fought like that. Didn’t he know he could have been killed?

            Hemingway replied, “There are a lot of worse things in this world than dying while fighting for freedom. And if you don’t fight for freedom you’ll find out what every one of those things are.”

      Point fingers all you want; I know its frightening to realize that every president elected to office over the passed 40 years has been a puppet, but the sooner you see this, the sooner you’ll understand that politics divide us and leave us to bicker amongst ourselves while the ‘men behind the curtain’ carry out destructive federal policies. I’m 26 and I have the rest of my life to watch these occurrences unfold before me, while a good portion of this nation ( fortunately, most of the world is all ready privy to this) is still blinded by faith, political party ideals and ignorance.

      I agree with it all EXCEPT: don’t blame the government. WHAT???? This is where this anti-Constitutional crap has originated. All government workers take a sacred oath of office to protect, preserve, defend the Constitution. It must begin there, no matter what the people think they want. Government-educated Americans have been “educated” so that they do not know what their government is really supposed to do.

      They / We’ve been indoctrinated for many decades the exact opposite of what we need to know in order to have stopped this malignancy many years ago. We continue to be told, even by congress people and the usurper that we live in a democracy. GW said on many occasions that we were making the world safe for democracy. This is ridiculous. I cannot pass on this post unless I were to remove those lines.

  • Gun’s Are Going South?

    Wasn’t it three months ago that caderone and the dick-tater were telling us that we are responsible for the gun/carte/suggling violence in Mexico because the guns are smuggled in from the U.S. due to our refusal to outlaw guns. Tell Vincente and Calderon that the guns these guys were carrying were already outlawed in the US and imported from europe or asia. They probably got into Mexico the same way that the drugs get into Mexico, Via seaport or the southern Mexico border.

    • 45caliber

      The guns checked were less than 5% of the total found so far. Many of the guns ARE coming from the US – our government supplies arms to the Mexican military who either sells them to the drug gangs or the soldiers take them when they join the drug gangs. Most of the rest comes from Russia and/or China.

      It is illegal for anyone without a very special and hard to acquire license to own things like RPG’s, machine guns, rocket launchers, etc. So NONE of those can be purchased and sent South of the border.

      Of those guns that were traced to the US, the majority of them were purchased by family members here to give to their families in Mexico for personal defense. But in Mexico owning a gun for defense is illegal. Some special guns are bought and sent South but not very many. It is far cheaper and easier to buy from other countries. Besides, when they collect up to 80 billion a year in funds, why should they even worry about the price of guns? The money really doesn’t do them much good sitting in a basement somewhere.

      But the MSM and the Feds don’t wish that you know that the US is NOT the gun capitol of Mexico. That wouldn’t give them the right to be nosy about Americans who own guns.

      Rush, ALL, the game is very simple. The D.C. Latrine rulers, oBumanation’s handlers, are simply ‘balkanizing’ the USA, like that same criminal Ziotic (idiotic) World Mafia has balkanized England, France, Germany, Canada, Australia, etc, with Muslims (here, with Mexicans, etc), to fabricate Brzesinski’s Clash of Civilizations, so WE kill each other in a civil revolt, and THEY remain intact, and in possession of the devastated countries. EXACTLY as THEM Ziotic criminals did to Czarist Russia.

      After all, once the local population is decimated, these Ziotic sewer rats can call in any mercenary army from another country, or from the Zion controlled UN army, to invade and kill the reamins of the balkanizing immigrants, generally, poor, uneducated, and with absolutely NO rights in their invaded country. Much less, prepared for defense as they were not allowed to bear arms by their previous rulers, and are prone to obey their masters, or expect to be killed.

      Don’t just look at the oBumanation, or Boosh, look at the manipulators, the Ziotic Tribe pulling the strings on ‘our’ government Puppets.

We as a Country are a disgrace and Laughing stock to all other nations.

I again ask you where are my rights my freedoms as an American protected? It just made me sick to watch the video I feel for those american Residents in arizona that have to indure such.

    This usurper puppet is just doing what he has done in the past, control an concore, the only thing that i want to know, is it the bilderburgs pulling the strings or is it just his mind thats out of control.or is it both. if we do get to vote in nov. and where not in marshal law yet then i think we may have a chance to make some changes and hope that we can fix this mess with out blood shed.

    • 45caliber

      dan in AZ:
      I agree. IF. That is really a big word, though.

      I’ve seen several comments from people over the last several weeks calling for someone ELSE to organize and lead an armed force on Washington. I am convinced that these people are government agents trying to get this done so Oblama can declare martial law and postpone all elections for the “duration of the problem”. I also think that is one of the reasons the Mid-East war is still going on. It gets a lot of military who might support such a move out of the country. After all, no liberal trusts the military for any reason.

      I think we all need to stay cool, avoid any “crisis” that might give him a chance to declare martial law and wait for election day. If we can take at least one house of Congress away from him, hopefully we can stall him off until 2012 when we can get rid of him. And if there are still a majority of people in the US who vote him back in – God help us.

    Maybe one of you can explain to me how elected people swear to uphold the Constitution of these United States and as soon as they take office this oath is tossed aside, does that constitute treason? Confused American

    • s c

      Robert, there’s no fast, easy way to explain it. It’s not new, it’s not easy to stop, and as long as voters have few or no standards for the elected swine they send to Washington, nothing will change.
      Ideally, people should know wannabe candidates personally. If that’s not possible, know their supporters [political ties, friends, religious background, classmates, neighbors and whether or not they merely 'talk' about the Constitution or if they LOVE the Constitution].
      You’re not confused, Robert. The losers we send to Washington are confused. They think they deserve everything they can TAKE from us. They are told they can have what they want while in office – as long as they obey their masters (not the American people).
      I suppose a legal, written contract would help, but that’s no more likely than term limits. Keep the faith, and never hesitate to put a progressive in his/her/its place.

      • 45caliber

        s c: To make matters worse – and I believe one reason for the problem – is that schools no longer teach much of the Constitution to students any more. When I was in high school, we have a year long class called Civics. And if you didn’t pass it, you didn’t graduate.

        It spent a LOT of time telling you what the Constitution meant, line by line. It also told you other rights and responsibilities you had in the government, how to vote, etc.

        Now the only real mention of the Constitution is made in American History. And that basically is that the Consitution was written to establish our country (not that we are still under it) and that the slaves were freed. Not much else. And the Bill of Rights? The teacher seldom does more than mention they exist if that much.

        It’s like the Civil War. One high school boy said that there was a picture of the Rebel battle flag in one of their history books. He asked what it was – and the teacher refused to tell the class. Another student noted something else in history was wrong in the book. When she pointed it out to the teacher, the teacher told her, “But this is what the government wants you to learn. And you’d better learn it this way because it WILL be on the test.”

    It is unfortunate we have Muslim Obama, a president who’s ideological interest is his own marxist/socialist political agenda for America. Muslim Obama must be stopped before our country looses more of our freedoms and the American citzens must start with this year’s elections to rid congress of Pelosi, Reid and other corrupt socialist Democrats along with liberal Republicans. These greedy corrupt politicians are creating a national debt that will cost our country’s future for generations. With more higher taxes starting Jan. 2011 the people who voted for Muslim Obama will see “change” they were promised would not occur under his administration. Hopefully the good moderate Democrats and Independents now see the real disingenuous Muslim Obama along with corrupt congress representatives like Pelosi & Reid who all deal in bribes for votes and replace them will honest people who will represent the people’s needs. Muslim Obama’s only interest in securing the Arizona Border is to make it look politically appealing by sending approx. 500 National Guards for desk jobs to help with paper/report work pandering to Hispanics for their votes not boots on the ground to protect the citizens of Arizona. Muslim Obama and Janet Napolitano(Homeland Security) are not serious about securing the border as both would rather pander to the illegals instead of helping the victims who are American citizens living and working in Arizona. WE NEED NEW POLITICAL LEADERSHIP IN WASHINTON DC. DISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH STARTS AT THE BOTTOM BY WORKING AND EARNING IT NOT BY SOCIALIST OBAMA DECIDING WHO GETS OUR MONEY. VOTE TO REPLACE FAILED CORRUPT CONGRESS MEMBERS THIS NOVEMBER!!

  • Mike N.

    1917. The U.S. army was involved with a mission to secure our border with mexico from incursions by the bandit Poncho Villa. The U.S. had avoided getting involved in the first world war despite provacation by Germany. A coded message was intercepted by the british intell Laying out an offer of german backing for the mexican govt if they would invade the U.S. and reconqore the states of New Mexico Texas and Arizona. This was the straw that broke the camels back and we declared war on germany. Fortunatly, mexico was busy with a civil war and coudn’t take the germans up on thier offer. I don’t believe mexico has ever given up on the idea of retaking thier lost territory. If they continue to populate the region with mexicans they will eventually regain them by default. Especially if they are illeagals. They would simply cecede from the Union and we would have to go to war to get them back. Remember the American civil war?

  • John G

    Remember when they said the Mexicans were doing work Americans won’t do? With over 40 million on food stamps now and unemployment going to the moon, I think Americans will do anything to provide for the their family. Let’s cut the PC BS, no country allows laws to be broken like the Mexicans are doing to the U.S. Even Mexico has rules that are designed to keep anyone from doing what these Mexicans are doing. Impeach Obama, kick out this congress, vote out all the existing Senate starting with Harry Reid, and bring the Constitution and Bill of Rights back front and center. How much are you going to take before enough is enough? Or, perhaps you are getting a check from the government as well and like being a Comrade.

  • V

    WE ARE NOT A NATION OF IMMIGRANTS and have not been for hundreds of years!

    Help Stop the “PC” Crap, they are not undocumented workers, or illegal immigrants, THEY ARE “ILLEGAL ALIENS”!!!!!!

    Our Government has failed us!!!!!!

    1. Close our “BORDERS“, the fence worked for Israel, and it will work for us.
    2. Shut down “ALL” immigration for at least Ten years.
    3. Mandatory prosecution for hiring ILLEGAL ALIENS.
    4. No more Sanctuary Cities.
    5. Anyone arrested and found guilty, that is here illegally, or holds any type of Visa, or even someone that has been granted citizenship, will be deported.
    6. The United States does not have any need for H1B Visas, our kids are getting out of School and are being passed over and Foreign Workers are being hired in their place. These are High-Tech, High-Paying Jobs. The Legal Fees the Companies pay for these Visas are “OUTRAGEOUS”. The Corporations are also paying for ENGLISH LESSONS for the foreign workers. As more and more of our Corporations are being Managed by Foreign born Executives, US Citizens are being pushed out of these Corporations.
    7. Make the Unions use E-Verify on all Construction & Manufacturing Jobs, these are not low paying jobs. We have large numbers of Illegal’s in these positions.
    8. Pass “ENGLISH” as our National Language.
    9. Make sure that anyone already in this country on any type of VISA cannot access any of our Social Services.
    10. Make sure E-Verify is used when anyone applies for any US Social Services.
    11. No more FREE BILINGUAL EDUCATION.
    12. No more Government Information in any language, other than English.
    13. Citizenship will not be granted to any child born to someone who is here illegally.
    14. No Chain Migration / Citizenship!
    15. No Scholarship Money for anyone here illegally, or anyone with a VISA.
    16. No more welfare babies!!!!!! They get on welfare and have one unwanted, neglected, semi-literate child after another. It is time to limit the number of children that can be born to a woman receiving welfare (1), any others born while she is on welfare will result in the charge of “Irresponsible Neglect” and the children will be removed and she WILL GO TO JAIL!
    17. Drug Test all people that receive welfare.
    18. DNA Test all Women & Children that receive welfare.
    19. Prosecute Men / Women for non-support of their children that receive welfare!
    20. NO AMNESTY EVER!!!!!!!!!

    It is time to take care of US Citizens! No one has the right to come to this country unless we invite them!

    The jobs of US Citizens have been given to other countries, by people like Gates, for decades now.

    We need to remember that US Citizens have children that will need jobs and homes in the future.

    Meeting with ANY Racial Based Group, Texas Hispanic Chambers of Commerce, LULAC, NAACP, LA RAZA, Etc.; this is the same as meeting with the KLAN, NAZI‘s, SKINHEAD‘s, Etc.! There is NO difference! This subsidizing of people based on their ethnic origins and skin tone is what got us into the mess we are in! The need for GUESTWORKER VISAS is a LOAD of CRAP!

    The propaganda that has been going on forever that these are ALL just good decent people looking for a better life, wanting to fit in (HA!), and not taking good paying US Jobs from US Citizens (Biggest joke of all!), is a total fabrication! They come here the women get on our Social Welfare Systems ASAP and begin producing Children One-After-Another, probably no more than two years apart! These children are not taught English at home, but are taught DISRESPECT for US CITIZENS, and that US CITIZENS OWE THEM (FREE MEDICAL, EDUCATION, SCREW THE AMERICANS ANYWAY YOU CAN, ETC.); THIS ATTITUDE IS CARRIED FORWARD THROUGHOUT THEIR LIFETIMES!

    A large percentage of the money earned by Illegal Aliens & Legal Immigrants is not spent in the United States, it is sent out of the US, thus creating a NEGATIVE CASH FLOW FOR THE US!!!!!!

    Our Government Officials at the FEDERAL & STATE Level have not had the BACKBONE to VOTE for ENGLISH as our OFFICAL LANGUAGE, something so simple that has made our NATION GREAT! It would save TRILLIONS! Am I implying that elected Government Officals are a bunch of KNEE BENDING GREEDY SYCOPHANTS? The answer is “YES”!

    • meteorlady

      Your visa worker remarks was right on the money. In the 1990′s when high tech was booming, workers from all over the world came here on work visas that were issued for a 6 year periods of time. The law at that time stated that they were to receive the same pay rate and citizens for the same job. I was laid off from Boeing as a high tech project manager and took a job contracting at AT&T Wireless for very good money. I was surrounded by East Indians, Russians, Canadians, Pakistanis and Chinese workers. Most of these workers came through employment agencies that specialized in the visa process and bringing in the workers. The law was not followed by the corporations as most all of the foreign workers were receiving about 1/2 the pay I was and did not complain because they wanted the job and it paid good by their standards.

      Then the high tech boom flopped and many high tech workers were laid off. You guessed it, the American citizens were laid off and the foreigners on work visas kept their jobs. We all had to apply for unemployment or find lower paying jobs while these people worked, sent their children to our schools, and used our roads and public amenities. It took around two years for all of my friends to finally settle in full time jobs and by that time the wages were degraded to 1/2 of what they were making (the same as paid to the foreign workers). After five years the wages has only gained 2/3 and we all lost a hugh amount of money during those 7 years. That also meant that the taxes we paid went down substantially.

      I do not believe that with millions unemployed there should be any foreign workers here. It’s corporate welfare and they cheat the law by paying less to the foreigners. If they all left along with the illegals, we might be back to decent wages in this country as the labor pool would shrink substantially, citizens could go back to work and tax revenue would increase. Why pay for more months of unemployment when foreigners are holding jobs that should go to citizens?

      • Margo

        Do you know if those foreign workers were getting other benefits? Housing, healthcare and etc. Also, did they have to pay taxes on their money or were they exempt?

  • 45caliber

    Everyone:
    Be sure to vote in ALL elections coming up. And vote at the polling places.

    A voting offical after the last election was responding to a reporter about a recount. He stated that it would take a few days because they needed to open and count the absentee votes. The reporter, in surprise, asked why they weren’t already opened and counted.

    The offical stated that if someone won by a hundred thousand votes, it was a waste of time to open and count a few thousand more. It wouldn’t make any difference in that election. But if the vote was close – say within a couple of hunderd votes – and there was a recount, then the absentee votes could make a difference. So they were ONLY COUNTED THEN.

    If you want your vote to count – go to the polls.

      good point 45

  • meteorlady

    I was thinking that the federal government could not possibly allow all this to continue. But…… given the penchant of the Federal Government for chaos and jumping in once all hell has broke loose, I believe congress and the President are waiting patiently for the entire southern border to erupt into a war zone so they can pass their immigration reform package by yelling that it’s needed immediately to solve the problems.

    It is beyond me that our government CHOOSES to ignore the danger to it’s citizens that live there, and to ignore the damage that these people are doing to our country both environmentally, culturally and the drain to our health care, justices system, schools and entitlement dollars. It also amazes me that the environmentalists are not picketing to get something done to stop this devastation of our country and our property – but wait, they are supporting no drilling for oil up in Montana and North Dakota.

    In my opinion, I think the fact that Obama seems to be siding with the illigals, and is now trying to derail Arizona’s new law is just more encouragement for them to come over. Now I think they want to be in the US by the time Obama declares them leagal.

  • http://personallibertydigest jim

    The reason the vast majority of illegals come into the country isn’t to commit crimes per say (yes it is a crime to come into the country without paper work) but it is for jobs. When I got my job I needed a social security card so my company could pay taxes. If thy didn’t they would be comitting the crime of tax evasion (a federal offence) and aiding me to do the same. It seams to me that if the government would simply enforce the laws concerning these tax cheating unamerican criminal employers every time they hired the illegals with the full force of federal tax law the flow of illegals would soon stop.

    • Desert S

      These people get a fake social security card to get a job. Why do you think that identity theft is such an issue? The companies don’t know their workers are illegal part / most of the time. No one really knows… except for the IRS… and the IRS has NO reason to tell you or anyone that there are 10 companies in 5 states paying taxes to the same social security number. They sell the same SSN to multiple people and get more money from each sale. It’s not just a need to be strict with the employers – it’s also a need to force the IRS to actually LOOK at where and why the funds are coming in – to then notify the employers there’s an issue they need to resolve. However, if those issues were resolved – then there’d be less funds going into social security… So it’s NOT in their interest to pursue this.

      Keep in mind employers don’t have any tools to verify a person’s social security number. The government does NOT want to provide anything like that. Without that sort of tool… how is an employer – say a small business – to do anything about verifying the citizenship of its employees?

      Not all states require proof of citizenship (birth certificate or passport) to get a drivers license or state ID… so there really is no consistent form of ID across the country which is not easily forged – or forged well enough to fool small business owners.

        Desert S,
        I believe the E-verify will do just what you ask! That is why all the progressives are fighting to keep it from going permanent!!

    Either the Fed’s have a specific purpose in allowing millions to enter the US illegally the purpose for which escapes me or they are totally incompetent. In either case our own government is the enemy here and guilty of malfeasance. Those are harsh words but in this case the truth hurts. To make matters worse, they have the power to both ignore us and to crush us. They are constitutionally mandated to protect us against invasion among other thing’s. They’re not doing it. Our republic is withering while they spend billions in forign countries trying to bring them out of the dark ages of the third world. Does anyone else see something wrong here?

      I really think that somone here hit the nail on the head when they said that texas arizona new mexico would reccead from the union when they were fully taken over. where as they would be mexico again. but what they dont get is they would lose votes taxes ect.if it where to happen. the only thing that makes since is they plan to lift the borders for the one world order to happen.its kind of obvious since they are tearing up the constitution day by day like the fences that arent needed why spend the money if where just going to have them removed anyway.about the only way that this could happen is to have marshal law so he can do it with out any interfearance from the congress. thats just my opinion

  • Nickolai

    Have a scorched earth policy, burn the trash and clear a zone fm the border for half a mile or so. Any thing crossing the border is free game.

    Is it possible the government is trying to provoke us so we’ll go over the edge and they’ll have justification to impose martial law?

  • John

    If the government provokes its citizens to take action and then impose martial law (sounds like arizona) that government should be overthrown. I belive most americans just don’t care. As long as the bills are paid and theres a cold beer in the fridg, all is right with the world. Chances are that horse’s arss in the White house will be reelected. The time for talk is soon coming to an end. It’s time for action!. What are you going to do?.

  • mavis

    Any time you have people coming over the border bringing
    tons of trash,drugs,and unsavory drug dealers it doesn’t
    take a rocket scientist to figure out it is bad news.
    How many of the illegals are sleeper cells just waiting for the signal to attack. Oh I know that most of them just want to come over here to work(yeah),they haven’t
    heard that there is welfare,healthcare & assisted housing,food stamps and other things that are given to THE poor and downtrodden. They haven’t heard if they manage to have a baby here that it will automaticly become a citizen and can go on all these freebees, and you know we just cannot separate a parent from a child. So the story is acted out thousands of times,but as you say they just want to come over here to work. The criminals that come over just want to be here because if they tried to come over legally, they couldn’t because of their criminal past,so they come over here and start their criminal ways, killing, raping,and kidnapping and no telling what else. Some get arrested and are put in our overcrowded prisons, so we have to feed and clothe them until their sentence is complete, they are let out and they begin again. The moral to this story is stop them at the border. Where is that fence that was put into law to build. OBAMA BUILD THAT –FENCE.

      thats my point no one is seeing the real picture here so they hug there trees and say its alright. where are all of the envireomentalist why arent they screeming bloody murder at the devistation that all of the illegals are creating. I think the next step is marshal law when they the terrorist are told the date to start bombing,which plays into the hands of allahoboma then they can lift the borders for the one world order.I feel we have been had I really dont belive that there will be an election in november I think come oct. were going to see the truth.

    Proving that the illegal immigration crisis is not limited to border states, an undocumented alien in a Midwest prison for a felony conviction fleeced U.S. taxpayers for tens of thousands of dollars worth of medical care, including surgery for an inflatable penis pump.

    The unbelievable story was recently made public by officials in a tiny Minnesota town—Shakopee—that has been enormously impacted by illegal immigrants. In the last few years, the cost of incarcerating illegal aliens has grown nearly tenfold in the small county (Scott) that encompasses the town of about 25,000 residents.

    Last year alone Scott County, with a population of about 114,000, spent $307,000 to jail illegal aliens and nearly $1 million in the last four years combined. The figure doesn’t even include medical coverage, education or welfare for illegal aliens, which local officials say state and federal laws require them to provide.

    Incredibly, the mandatory coverage includes penis pumps, which in this particular case, was billed as an “emergency” medical procedure that cost taxpayers $50,000. Jailed for identity theft, the illegal immigrant has also incurred tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills in addition to that emergency penis pump surgery.

    After serving 98 days for that felony in the Scott County Jail — at a $12,000 cost to local taxpayers — the man was supposed to be held for deportation. Instead, he was released and assigned a deportation court date even though he has a history of jumping bail. The same illegal immigrant had an arrest warrant for skipping bail involving a separate crime when he got booked in Scott County for identity theft.

    The information regarding this and other similar cases came to light because county prosecutors launched a probe of the financial toll created by illegal immigrants after a gang-related stabbing earlier this month. The gang bangers who murdered the Coon Rapids man during a turf fight lived in Shakopee and belonged to the notoriously violent Latin Kings.

    This illustrates that rural America has indeed been hit by an illegal immigration crisis once thought to affect only border states. Minnesota officials point out that, although Scott County is thousands of miles from the U.S.-Mexican border, illegal immigrants are devastating their community. That’s why one Scott County lawmaker, Commissioner Barbara Marschall, applauds Arizona officials for saying “we’ve had enough.”

    The latest mumblings are that just because Arizona Law Enforcement begins to arrest ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS doesn’t mean that ICE is going to accept their arrests.
    Well, let’s see: ICE is under JANET NAPOLITANO who heads up Homeland InSecurity in the mainstream of the Barack Hussein Obama Administration, so Barack will excise his will on Arizona through channels as the Supreme Dictator of the United States. AND Janet Napolitano, who damn well knows the serious problems ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION is wroughting on Arizona (and the rest of the Country) has a convenient lapse of memory, or a misdirected sense of responsiblity away from America and Americans. I can hear the huge sucking sound right now in the Homeland Security Offices in D. C..
    ICE has already reported that some 140 different nationalities are streaming across the open border with Mexico. There’s one hell of a lot of things happening around America, that I would guess most Americans aren’t aware of because, Obama’s News Media doesn’t report it, and Republicans are shoving it in a drawer too, which is very scary. For Example: Muslim women were recently reported to the FBI in the Fresno, CA. area buying up every pre-paid cell phone they could get their hands on. Turns out they’re being shipped overseas because this is the detonator of choice for all their roadside bombs. It’s just a matter of time before they start using them here.
    An American family on a day trip to Mexico within the past month had their three (3) year old daughter abducted right from under their feet by one of the Mexican Drug Cartels. The 3 year old was found later sitting in an infant seat in the backseat of a car trying to cross the border into the
    U. S.. She appeared to be asleep in the infant seat, but in fact she had been murdered by the Cartel and her body was stuffed with cocaine that the Cartel was trying to smuggle into the U. S. in this little girl’s body. They made her into a suitcase and the American News Corporations reported NONE OF THIS TO AMERICANS ANYWHERE! MICHELLE HUSSEIN OBAMA ! This little girl can’t ask you about people who DON’T HAVE PAPERS .
    AMERICA……………..WAKE UP !

    It’s time to take action !
    It’s time to take back YOUR government !

    All this hub-bub about not disrespecting Barack Hussein Obama because he’s the President is total crap. Every day I grow more and more convinced that he is the devil incarnate and there is no end to the destruction he will levy on the U. S. if left in office term. AND, God forbid if he gets re-elected.
    Barack’s response to the oil spill in the gulf has been negligible. He certainly appears to have very little concern about it.
    Barack’s response to healing this Country’s economy is nothing more than smoke and mirrors. Just ask him about the tens of thousands of workers he’s putting out of work between now and the end of the year.
    Barack’s open border policy has millions more ILLEGALS streaming into the United States so they’re here for his amnesty when it comes; here at the expense of the taxpayers and our unemployed.
    Barack’s support for Mexico’s President in his insulting remarks to Americans clearly exhibits Barack’s feelings about America and Americans.
    It’s time to take a vote of NO CONFIDENCE in this aspiring Communist Dictator and remove him and his administration from office and have an emergency election for a REAL LEADER

  • dan of arizona

    That was well put I for one think that the corridor that was provide for the illegals will be expanded to include the entire state sooner than we think let alone lifting the borders during a time of marshal law.
    I would like to read the articles that you have found so as to share with others which needs proof,they are hard to find even in the conservative rags so please help me to pass the truth on thanks

  • Ken

    I wonder if anyone would be offended if we adopted Mexico’s immigration laws? 1.)No one other then a legal citizen can obtain financial aid or assitance, 2.)You can not enter the country and or seek citizenship unless you can show full financial stability, 3.)If you do enter illegally you will be jailed, fined and returned to your country of origin, 4.)If you want to retire here as a non resident citizen you need to show a minimum anual income of 70 times that of minimum wage (or about $1.37 mil a year, I don’t think we’ll have to worry about that one!), 5.) Anyone who harbors an illegal and or allows one to collect financial aid or assistance would receive an automatic 10 year jail sentence.
    Yes we are a nation of immigrants but for most of us that meant either being born here of parents who were legal citizens or learning english, being sponcered for a specific period of time, not being a burden to US tax payers, obtaining legal status via federal regulatons and taking an oath to protect and serve this great nation. If you can’t except those terms then you shouldn’t bother comming here! I guess that means Obama would have to leave, Thank God!!!
