‘If They Rear Their Ugly Heads, We’ll Send Them To Hell!’ – Texas Sheriff’s Message To ISIS

sheriffgary

Hey ISIS, don’t mess with Texas.

Midland County Sheriff Gary Painter brought his ten-gallon cowboy hat to an interview with the elitists at CNN, and he explained why he believes that ISIS operatives are already in the United States, and what he’s prepared to do about it.

This ‘good old boy’ is full of common sense and came across very well despite a bit of baiting by the CNN hosts. CNN may have thought they were going to have a bit of sport with some flyover country, redneck, rumor-mongering and scare-tactic peddling country bumpkin. But in short order he turned the tables and the short but riveting interview became a damning indictment of the pathetic security conditions on the Southern border with a bonus, surprise revelation that the government is currently warning Texas sheriffs about ISIS activity in border areas.

What a perfect interview on his part. He came across as informed, logical, and professional while outlining the various threats a porous and poorly guarded border presents to the nation. It turns out Sheriff Gary Painter is finishing up his seventh term in office, has been in law enforcement since 1970, distinguished himself on the battlefield while serving two tours in Vietnam as a Marine, and has been honored by the Texas legislature as a “highly respected Texas peace officer.”

I have no doubts that Sheriff Painter would act swiftly and competently against any black pajama wearing foreign fighters that may pop up in his area of operations. He’d be happy to make them a martyr for their Islamofascist cause. We need more like him in positions of authority who share the view that “If They Rear Their Ugly Heads, We’ll Send Them To Hell!”

Illegal Immigrants: The Real Occupy Movement Taking Over America!

Illegals Protest America

Illegals Protest America 

There is an occupy movement bigger than Occupy Wall Street. This movement is  more dangerous to the American culture and society than a bunch of unwashed heathen pot-heads who want everything handed to them on a coke-lined mirror.

These occupiers are occupying American jobs, educations, welfare, healthcare and public housing. These occupiers march in protest against the American people and this country they insist they have the right to conquer. And now, these occupiers want to occupy the American vote without legalization and naturalization. They believe they have the right to amnesty.

I’m talking about illegal aliens.

Illegal aliens spell disaster for American jobs, education, and culture if their occupation is not stopped, the borders controlled, The DREAM Act crushed, Obamacare repealed, and deportation enforced.

In 1985 America was warned of this dangerous occupation. Americans were told illegal immigration would destroy the United States. The invasion had many legislators worried about America’s future if deportation and border security were not enforced. Republican Colorado Governor Richard Lamm forewarned that unless illegal immigration is halted,

[We] shall leave a legacy of strife, violence, and joblessness for our children. 

Democratic Florida Senator Lawton Chiles said that

[I]f we do not regain control of our borders . . . I think that within ten years, we will not recognize the United States as the United States we see today.

Although legislation was enacted with intentions to halt the influx of illegal immigration—if you can truly call it working to fix the borders—it failed.

Legislation awarded amnesty and enabled foreign occupiers to continue their invasion of America.

illegal-alien-amnesty

Republicans and Democrats prefer securing their lips to the rear ends of illegal aliens in order to occupy the Hispanic vote versus protecting America’s best interests.

Foreign occupation of this nation is out of control: “One of every 11 Arizona residents is an illegal immigrant; in California it is one of every 15,”  and the numbers rise daily, making Lamm and Chiles’ predictions about an unrecognizable United States true.

Senior Fellow Victor Davis Hanson of the Hoover Institute notes that “labor-intensive jobs” for South West growers, once performed by Americans at top wages, are now occupied by an abundance of Mexicans under the age of 40 who are willing to work longer hours at lower wages.

Hanson says once the low-wage illegal reaches the age of 40, he or she is no longer in good health “…and older immigrants can become a drain on the economy because of their need for entitlement programs.”

This explains the tens of billions spent annually on welfare to illegal aliens by American taxpayers.

With over 20 million Americans out of work and losing everything, you mean to tell me there aren’t any Americans who would take those jobs to regain their losses and rebuild?

Another problem is illegal women working as housekeepers in affluent neighborhoods at lower wages than American citizens would receive. The employer assumes they are profiting from paying less for services, but in actuality, foreign governments are profiting big time off the United States: Illegal immigrants have families in their home countries that they send their American earnings to.

American women whose families have lost everything should be fighting for these jobs. American women command higher wages for housework than illegals and that work can build into a lucrative business that should not be profiting foreign economies.

Americans who hire illegals are contributing to the loss of American jobs and homes. Foreign governments collect those funds, not the U.S. economy.

It is the Americans who are discriminated against every time illegals occupy American jobs and government programs.

The right thing to do is to discriminate against law-breakers.

Also: Those who hire illegals enable economic down-turns and crime in America, because many illegals have committed violent crimes against Americans.

illegal criminals

 

 

Those entering illegally are not seeking to become Americans or they would take the path of legal immigration and assimilation. By violating U.S. laws, illegals demonstrate they have no desire to work for anything but occupation of this nation. Not only should illegal immigrants be deported, but foreigners who want to enter America’s doors should pay for that right.

As Gary S. Becker of the Hoover Institute notes:

[A]mnesty now would encourage future illegal immigration in the hope of a further amnesty. Amnesty makes a mockery of immigration laws and rewards those who came illegally, even as many potential immigrants wait years for the right to come legally.

 

Becker furthers states that:

[S]elling the right to immigrate would be the best approach to legal immigration. Among other benefits, the revenue from immigrants’ payments could reduce taxes. Paying for the right to immigrate would also negate the argument that immigrants get a free ride when they gain health care and other benefits. Moreover, making immigrants pay would attract the type of immigrants who came much earlier in American history: young men and women who are reasonably skilled and want to make a long-term commitment to the United States. They would be willing to pay a perhaps sizable price because they would stand to benefit significantly from migrating. To prevent the price from excluding young and ambitious men and women who would like to immigrate but cannot afford to come, the U.S. government could encourage a loan program that would be similar to the loans available to college students. The analogy is close because immigration, like college, is an investment in human capital.

 

Coming to America legally paid off in the past, those immigrants contributed to the growth of the American economy versus its destruction. Today we see a destructive occupation of our nation’s values, culture, heritage, language, government, and our very history.

Every leader who allows illegal immigrant occupation and sides with amnesty is enabling the takeover of America by people who do not hold America or the American people in high regards.

This occupation must stop, but it can only happen with the American voter electing right leadership in power; leadership that wants to save this nation, not see it fall into the hands of foreign occupation.

What Washington doesn’t want people to think about on Immigration

hancocktx

While the debate rages in Washington about immigration, one thing that should be on the top of the list of considerations is being largely overlooked. In spite of the fact that the following report was aired on ABC, it’s unlikely that anyone is going to be hearing too many politicians grabbing the spotlight to talk about it. They will prefer to keep people focused on images of immigrants that want legal status, children that were dragged across the border illegally through no fault of their own, and the various low wage workers that certain portions of our economy theoretically must have in order to survive. There will be talk about STEM, and how much we need highly skilled immigrants, in spite of the fact that the better solution lies in better education opportunities for legal citizens. But, there won’t be very much talk about unfinished fence lines, small towns on the border within ear shot of the drug wars being waged just south of the theoretical border, or the fact that civilians have become the front line of our border defense through the use of personal security cameras. Politicians will not talk about the fact that there are citizens of this nation that have taken to bearing arms not out of choice because of their rights under the Second Amendment, but out of necessity, for their own safety. They are essentially a citizen militia, defending our border.

White House Has ‘Peculiar’ Justification for Illegal Immigration

John C Calhoun, the newest White House advisor on immigration.
John C Calhoun, the newest White House advisor on immigration.

John C Calhoun, the newest White House advisor on immigration.

Someone in the White House is channeling John C. Calhoun.

Stephen Dinan, of the Washington Times, writes the White House has issued a report that claims, “…the strength and continuity of rural America is contingent on common–sense immigration reform.” In other words, the availability of your boutique tomatoes depends on amnesty for illegals.

The Obama Administration believes rural America, much like the antebellum South, has a ‘peculiar institution’ the rest of the nation must respect. In this instance the 50 to 60 percent of the agricultural workforce that’s in the country illegally.

In the 20–page report Calhoun, whoops…the authors, claim farmers are having trouble hiring workers and as a result are cutting back on planting or “are moving operations abroad as a result of the labor shortage.”

That must require some doing. Are they boxing up the plantation and shipping it — dirt and all — to foreign shores? What happens to the hole left behind in Mississippi? Do administration staffers really think produce is grown in the back room of Whole Foods, adjacent to the customer bathroom?

The justification for tolerating widespread illegality among sodbusters goes like this, “Under the current system, rural America is losing opportunity and harvests due to lack of a stable workforce. Coupled with a decline in native-born rural populations, the strength and continuity of rural America is contingent on common-sense immigration reform that improves job opportunity, provides local governments with the tools they need to succeed, and increases economic growth.”

The entire argument sounds suspiciously like Calhoun’s justification for slavery. He contended, according to Wikipedia, “Southern whites, outnumbered in the United States by voters of the more densely-populated Northern states, were one such minority deserving special protection in the legislature.”

The only real difference is how the workforce arrived to participate in the vital rural economy. In Calhoun’s day slaves arrived under duress, in Obama’s day the helots volunteer. Either way the rest of the country is supposed to tolerate and approve of what Democrats desire.

Both systems undermine our domestic labor market, penalize low–income Americans and reward those with no respect for the rule of law, which in this instance includes both employers and employees.

A simple application of market forces would solve the farmer’s labor problem. Right now there’s little demand among U.S. citizens for agriculture jobs at wages that are depressed by illegal immigration. Close the border while raising wages and watch the wonder of the marketplace at work.

Or invest in mechanization and replace the human factor with machines. Farmers made the switch from horses to tractors. Does the administration think automobile manufacturers would have invested in robotics if they had access to illiterate high school dropouts willing to work for minimum wage and no benefits?

The question answers itself. America would have been entertained by footage of workers fleeing Chipotle and General Motors when INS vans pulled into the parking lot. At least until the Obama re–election campaign began.

Agriculture lobbyists, dripping with concern for harried shoppers, contend that raising wages will mean produce prices go up. That’s a risk I’m willing to take. Besides, if gutless Republican Congressmen would force the federal government cut back on the double subsidy agriculture policy currently in place — farmers are guaranteed a minimum price and get paid by Uncle Sam, while consumers are stuck with higher prices at the grocery store — the reduction in prices caused by letting the market work without government interference, could well balance the increase in costs due to paying a market wage.

Strangely, the White House report issues a vague threat to begin “immigration enforcement actions that could tighten the supply of farm labor.” That appears to be a reference to deportation; something the Obama Administration essentially ended last summer. Threatening to do something Republicans have been demanding for months is hardly a credible threat and will do nothing to put pressure on the House to pass an amnesty bill.

Unfortunately for the administration, this warning is old, discredited news. Alabama passed a bill cracking down on illegal “rural” workers in 2011 and Democrats used many of the same scare stories. Yet Alabama produce did not vanish from the shelves. In fact, Gina Loudon reported, “Immediately after the bill (HB 56) was passed, the unemployment rate began to drop. Since the bill passed last legislative session, in some counties, unemployment has dropped dramatically. For example, unemployment has gone from 10 percent to 6.9 percent in the former illegal immigrant hotbed of Marshall County, Alabama.”

But it was so hard on farmers. According to a Reuter’s story, Jerry Spencer estimates 90 percent of the illegals left the county (note to Members of Congress) and he started recruiting the unemployed to replace the vanished amigos. “There’s a fair amount of reticence on the part of farmers to take the city folk and unemployed workers,” Spencer said. “They really hate letting go of their amigos because they’re so problem-free. They don’t squabble.”

Yeah, there’s nothing like a field full of docile illegals to make one feel like a real patron.

Before the Civil War Democrats and their politicians exploited slaves so they could live in the manner to which they had grown accustomed. Modern Democrat politicians, and the businesses they enable, are willing to exploit illegal immigrants for the same reason. Both sets of Democrats are more than happy to dump the resulting social costs on the rest of the country.

The question is how much longer are we going to put up with it?

The REAL reason our Southern Border will never be secure

nicholasstixuncensored

The Senate on Tuesday by a vote of 54-39 rejected an amendment to the latest version of the Senate’s new immigration bill. The amendment offered by Senator John Thune of South Dakota should have been a no brainer to pass. The Thune Amendment simply called for the completion and funding of a 700 mile stretch of double tiered fencing along our Southern Border.

What was so surprising about the failure of this amendment was some of the reasoning for its failure. Most of the Senators that voted against it were Democrats; but there were also five Republicans, including all four members of the so called “Gang of Eight” that voted against the measure too. The so called Republicans were: Senator John McCain, Senator Lindsey Graham, Senator Jeff Flake, and surprisingly even Senator Marco Rubio. The only Senator not part of the Gang of Eight that also voted against the measure was Alaskan Senator Lisa Murkowski.

Senator John McCain said he voted against the measure stating, “We should leave that issue (the border fence) to the best judgment of the Border Patrol.” This is the same John McCain who in a tough primary challenge in 2010 actually ran a campaign ad in which he says, “let’s build the dang fence!”

Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina also voted against the measure which is not surprising because pretty much anything John McCain does Lindsey follows suit.

Senator Jeff Flake, who replaced a solid conservative in Jon Kyl, also voted against the measure. Unfortunately as of late Mr. Flake has been living up to his name when it comes to the immigration issue.

Alaskan Senator Lisa Murkowski, who routinely sides with the Democrats also voted against the bill. She was appointed in 2002 by her father, another Rino Republican Frank Murkowski who at the time was Governor of Alaska.

However the most surprising vote came from Senator Marco Rubio. As one of the leaders of the Gang of Eight he was supposed to be the Conservative voice of reason when it came to crafting the immigration bill. Mr. Rubio has been talked about as a possible contender for the Presidency in 2016. By voting against this measure he may have severely diminished any hopes he had at seeking the Republican Nomination for President in 2016.

So why did five Republicans vote against a measure that would have helped eliminate more illegal immigration? Don’t they realize that if they pass Amnesty they will be committing political suicide? Don’t they even question the motives of the Democratic Party who are so focused on passing Amnesty they are trying to rush it through as quickly as possible? Why are they afraid to make border enforcement an integral part of the process?

The short answer is they have bought into the Democratic Party’s scare tactics, and have misinterpreted the election results of 2012. They think that passing Amnesty is somehow going to ingratiate themselves into the majority of Hispanic voter’s minds and allow them to capture more of the vote share. This is a grave miscalculation. If we grant Amnesty to 11 million illegal immigrants the majority, over 60% of these new voters will be votes for the Democratic Party. Typically you dance with the person who brought you to the party and these new voters will be doing the twist front and center for the Democrats.

Republicans can win these voters with the right message and the right messenger. Granting Amnesty is not the solution unless they are interested in a government that will become a dictatorship under a one party rule.

So why is the Republican Party willingly putting themselves in a position that will lead to permanent minority status?

The long answer is the Republican Party of 2013 is no longer about limited government and individual freedom. The Republican Party of 2013 is about Globalism and the embracing of a New World Order.

For those of you who have never heard of the website SPP.GOV I implore you to Google it as soon as possible. SPP.GOV stands for the Shared Prosperity Partnership of North America. This is the real reason why you will never see a fence built on the Southern Border. The idea behind the Shared Prosperity Partnership is to create a North American Union similar to the European Union in Europe.

The North American Union, if it were ever to be implemented would combine Canada, the United States, and Mexico into one large Global Governance. In addition it would also change our currency from the almighty dollar bill into something called the Amero. Finally it would create a super highway that would start in Southern Mexico, run straight across the United States, and end somewhere in Northern Canada.

This is the true reason both parties are not serious about protecting our borders. This is why both parties want to pass Amnesty. This is why it is so vitally important that we fight this bill or any Amnesty bill now and in the future. If we somehow allow Amnesty to pass there is a real good possibility that a North American Union could be in our future.

Think about what a North American Union could do to our sovereignty rights? Think about what it could do to our Constitutional rights, especially our Second Amendment? Think about what it could do to our currency and our economy? Worst of all, think about what it will do to our deep rooted American pride? As Americans we are a very prideful people. We have always separated ourselves from the rest of the world based on our unique history and coveted status as the world’s most powerful superpower. Why would we ever knowingly want to give up that status or relinquish our standing in the world?

For America to remain a free country we must protect our borders. A country that does not protect its own borders will cease to be a country at some point. Any thought of legalizing illegal immigrants without first securing our borders could be a means to an end for America.

Solving the illegal immigration issue could be simple if we use some common sense.

First thing we should do is modify the birthright citizenship rule to only grant citizenship to the child being born on American soil. By eliminating citizenship to the parents of the child born here you send a clear message that just because your child was born here doesn’t give you the right to claim citizenship. If illegal immigrants knew that only their children who were born here could have automatic citizenship you would see a lot less illegal immigrants crossing the border to have children and abusing this law.

The second thing we could do is finally complete the fence across the entire border. Once the border is secure, we could build 2 or 3 maximum security correctional facilities in each one of the Border States right along side of it. We could even save the taxpayer’s in each respective Border State the cost of building these complexes by having the illegal aliens we capture help build them.

Finally, after we deport all the folks who have criminal records we give the remaining aliens a choice.

The first choice is immediate deportation or they would run the risk of being incarcerated in one of the maximum security correctional facilities they helped build.

The second choice would be to have them serve in our military. If they want to be Americans and truly love our country, than they should be willing to fight and die for it. After they have served in the military for a few years they should be granted full citizenship on the day they have been honorably discharged. At that point they should be entitled to every single benefit that natural born Americans have. That is how you fix the illegal immigration issue.

As a writer, commentator, and radio talk show host my job is talk about the important issues and offer common sense solutions. With all the dysfunction that permeates through Washington, D.C. it would be a miracle if any sound legislation ever was to pass. In the meantime it is imperative that we call our Senators and Congress members and let them know that we strongly oppose this bill. A majority in America and a minority in Congress can create a majority in Congress.

NBA Finals Brings Out The Racists!

sebastien_de_la_cruz

Last night was Game 3 of the NBA Finals- the San Antonio Spurs took on the Miami Heat in the Alamo City! In San Antonio, basketball is almost a religion! We bleed black and silver! Our home was no different than probably 98% of the San Antonio population last night. We were in front of the TV, getting ready to cheer on the Spurs!

I was finishing up in the kitchen, preparing snacks for the kids, when everyone started yelling for me to come in the living room. To my great surprise, I saw Sebastien De La Cruz, who is a personal friend of our family, standing in the middle of the court, belting out The National Anthem! We were so proud of him! I sent a text to his Mom to tell her what a great job he did, and settled in to enjoy the butt-whoopin’ that our boys gave to Miami!

spurs_stomp_the_heat

If you missed Sebastien’s performance, watch this! He is a very talented young man!

Sebastien was, in fact, my oldest daughter’s “first boyfriend” when they were in the 3rd grade. Over the last few years we have become friends with their family, and last year, when Sebastien made it to the Finals on American’s Got Talent 2012, we cheered him on every step of the way!

So it was with great sadness that I woke up this morning to find out that while we were so proud of Sebastien and his performance last night, he had unwittingly become the target of racism.

Here is a sampling of Twitter comments during last night’s performance. Warning! Foul language, and pure hate follows:

sebastien_de_la_cruz_racism

Now, this may seem like a simple case of racism to you, but I have a very different theory. Nevermind the fact that Sebastien is a LEGAL, AMERICAN CITIZEN, BORN AND RAISED in America! Nevermind that his PARENTS were born and raised here, and quite possibly, his grandparents as well! The real issue here is immigration, and how the politicians see it as nothing but a political game!

I believe that our country is reaching the boiling point on many issues, and immigration is one of the hotbed issues that is part of the boiling cauldron. Sadly, the president is doing nothing but adding fuel to the already blazing hot fire! People are fed up with the politicians going around the law to serve their own “needs”, and in the process, a child is paying the price for the dissension they have caused!

Barack Obama had the potential to be one of the greatest presidents in American History. He could have been the person to unite this nation like never before. He is a black man, with a white mother.

Step outside of the white and black issue, and you have the Hispanic issue. Barack Obama and the Democrat party’s grandstanding on immigration reform has done nothing but further divide this great nation. Rather than obeying the law, the Democrat Party, along with some from the Republican side of the aisle, are doing everything they can to go around the law of the land. Rather than addressing the issue in a legal manner, they are

A “long-time Democratic Party political operative with direct experience at the highest levels of government” says that the harsh reality is that the “Democrats could give a sh*t about Mexicans. This whole thing, this whole issue has always been about votes first. Period. Always. And this time around it’s all about 2014.”

Just yesterday, Democrat Senator Tim Kaine argued for illegal immigration on the Senate Floor- IN SPANISH! To top that off, Chuck Schumer said, ‘illegal immigration will be a thing of the past‘! So what they are telling every citizen in America is that they- the politicians, and those who come here illegally, do not have to obey they law! Forget the fact that millions of people every year come here legally!

The more these politicians push to go around the law, the more anger they stir up among the American public! Yes, you will always have racists! My husband and I are both very white people with five very dark “Mexican” children! We have been the brunt of racist comments before- including from my own extended family!

So here we are- the land of opportunity, land of the free, home of the brave, yet we are a nation very much divided against herself! On one side we have a nation full of politicians (on BOTH sides of the aisle!) using an entire race for their own political gain, and many of the pawns in their sick, political game go right along with it, being played for a fool! On the other side we have people who are tired of the political games at the expense of our nation and those who want to play by the rules. In the middle, you have the racist idiots that can’t see how truly disgusting they really are!

We truly have reached a sad place in America!

Inundated! Video Shows Stream of Border Crossers

secureborderintel

secureborderintelAs senators work to find an answer to illegal immigration Fox News reports citizens are attempting to show the country how porous our US/Mexico border is. Many say the administration is trying to play down the number of border crossers in an effort to pass some kind of amnesty legislation. The Secure Border Intel is one such group. They have placed hidden cameras along well known border crossing points capturing the steady stream of immigrants coming illegally into the US.

In the report following William La Jeunesse explains how and why this group of volunteers have decided to take action:

 


Let your senators know that the border needs to be secured before any talk of amnesty can continue. Additional videos, including captured Border Patrol audios, are available at the SBI YouTube site. You can read more at Fox News.

Contrary to DHS Reports, Illegal Border Crossings Thriving

border warning sign

border warning signAccording to an investigative report written for the Arizona Republic in the past five years more than $106 billion have been spent to build fencing along more than 650 miles of the border and and more than doubling the number of Border Patrol agents along it to almost 18,500. They erected surveillance towers and hidden sensors. They added  drones, aircraft, canine teams, horse patrols, checkpoints and vehicle patrols that range up to 60 miles from the actual border to arrest migrants and catch drug smugglers.

All of this infrastructure — along with a 58 percent drop in the number of migrants arrested by the Border Patrol compared with five years ago — underpins Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano’s claim that the border is more secure now than it has ever been. Arizona Central

But is it?

Last week it was reported that a radar equipped drone used by the Customs Department demonstrated less than half of those illegally crossing from Mexico were stopped by border agents. Customs department officials blames the ‘Got Away’ rates on rugged terrain, lack of border agents and inability by the drone to differentiate US citizens from others.

It was further reported that many of those caught by the Border Patrol are no longer hiding from officers but instead are turning themselves over to officials. The word in Mexico is that those who make it into the US are going to be eligible for amnesty.  The agency’s official response is that this sudden spike in arrests and the reason for it is anecdotal but one has to wonder what message is being sent by the current administration.

The Border Patrol policy is that they do not try to stop illegal crossings at the border; instead they try to stop illegals before they get too far. This policy means that Arizona and other state residents who may own land adjacent to the Mexico border must deal with a daily influx of border crossers. They must protect themselves and their families in this ‘no man’s land’ and fear the US government if they themselves don’t follow all laws, including holding suspected illegal crossers on their private land.

Contrary to Secretary Napolitano’s confident statements about our Southern border, it still appears that we must secure it before trying to enact an amnesty program.

 

ICE Director: We Didn’t Let “Bad” Bad Guys Out Of Prison.

ice illegal immigration 1

In a very covert fashion the Office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) quietly announced that in order to cut costs, it had released undocumented immigrants it was holding in detention.

Initially, the Obama administration had insisted only a “few hundred” immigrants were released for budgetary reasons in February with reported plans to release more than 3,000 others this month. Under scrutiny ICE admitted that they had released 2,800 individuals. Following intense criticism from border state governors and conservative congressmen as well as public outcry the department opted for a temporary shutdown of the plan.

Governor Jan Brewer from Arizona, sent a memo last week repeating her request for the Obama administration to release information pertaining to the release of these individuals which reads, in part:

Among those released, according to Director Morton, were at least 10 individuals classified among the highest-risk offenders. Others released included repeat drunken-driving offenders who, in addition to being in our country illegally, have exhibited behavior that places at-risk every Arizonan innocently sharing our roadways.

Yesterday’s ICE testimony directly contradicts repeated assurances and explanations peddled by the Obama administration in the days after the mass release of illegal aliens became public knowledge. The American people were initially told there were hundreds, not thousands, of individuals released. We were assured they were low-level detainees of little public risk. As we now know, neither of these claims was accurate.

Today Director Morton was called before the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee hearing on Immigration Enforcement to testify regarding his department’s actions. You can read ICE Director Morton’s prepared statement here.

You can watch the entire day’s hearing here. Chairman of the committee, Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) gives a six minute rebuke of ICE and the department.ice illegal immigration

But you might prefer Representative Trey Gowdy, (R-SC), former state prosecutor (begins at 47 minutes) as he spends his five minutes grilling the director with questions demonstrating his strong experience in court.

You can watch a few minutes of Gowdy’s Exchange below:

All this leads to the question: Were these released individuals really ‘the worst of the worst’ as stated numerous times by DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano or are they just a bunch of guys who happened to be imprisoned by ICE and used as political pawns?

Immigration; Even A Liberal Can Understand

Looks like immigration is back in the news again. Once again we hear Liberals screaming for amnesty for all people here illegally, while Conservatives scream no amnesty for illegal’s. Here is a little story made simple so even a Liberal can understand it. However, will they, I doubt it.

ill

There are two families: “Joe Legal” and “Jose Illegal”. Both families have two parents, two children, and live in California, or Florida, or Pennsylvania, or Nebraska — you get the idea.

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

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

Ready? Now pay attention….

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

Jose Illegal: $15.00 per hour x 40 hours = $600.00 per week, or $31,200.0 0 per year. Jose Illegal pays no taxes. Jose Illegal now has $31,200.00.

Do you get it, now? It is hard for me to understand why Liberals just do not get it. Conservatives, do not hate immigrants, we hate illegal immigrants. Our nation was built on the backs of immigrants; it was immigrants that made this country the strongest country in the world. However, when we try to enforce the laws of this nation, Liberals start screaming that we are haters. Well I say let them scream all they want, we know what is right and we will keep on doing it. Liberal views and policies are responsible for our country falling apart. Legal immigrants in, illegal immigrants out. We need more Joe Arpaio’s in this country.  

If you vote for or support any politician that supports illegal aliens… You are part of the problem!

It is way PAST time to take a stand for America and Americans!

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer Signs Executive Order Denying Public Funded Benefits to Young Illegal Immigrants

On Wednesday, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer ordered her state government agencies to deny drivers licenses and other public benefits to young illegal immigrants who obtain work permits under the new Obama Administration policy.

In the executive order, she was reaffirming the current Arizona law that denies taxpayer-funded public benefits and state identification to illegal immigrants.

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer issues an executive order denying public-funded benefits to young illegal immigrants

Young illegal immigrants around the country between the ages of 16-30 around the nation began applying for work permits on Wednesday under the Obama administration’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.

The new federal ‘policy’ defers deportation of certain young illegal immigrants who have a high school diploma, a GED, or who have served or are currently serving in the United States Armed Services, and all applicants must not have committed certain crimes.

Jan Brewer labeled the new federal policy by Barack Obama as “backdoor amnesty” back in June when the policy was announced.

Arizona has been a leading state in fighting for the right to protect their citizens from illegal immigrants, most recently making the news with the Arizona v. United States Supreme Court decision.

The U.S. Supreme Court in June overturned parts of the Arizona enforcement law known as SB1070 but ruled that a key provision on requiring police to ask people about their immigration status under certain circumstances can be implemented.

The Obama Administration and Eric Holder challenged the law in 2010, claiming that Arizona doesn’t constitutionally have the right to pass the law, since Immigration powers are enumerated to the federal government.

Gov. Brewer went on the Mike Broomhead show on 550 KFYI radio to discuss the executive order, listen here:

Obama Dream Act Executive Order Causes ICE Confusion

ice agents

A top union official for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers said at a press conference headed by Senator Jeff Sessions, R(AL) that President Barack Obama’s administration has ordered ICE agents to accept statements by illegal immigrants if they claim they qualify for Obama’s administrative DREAM Act. Agents are to believe statements at face value and without any verification.

Chris Crane, president of the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council, explained how the new selective immigration enforcement is affecting the ICE agents:

“As we still wait on detailed guidance from the administration, it’s impossible to understand the full scope of the administration’s changes, but what we’ve seen so far concerns us greatly,” Crane, said. “As one example, prosecutorial discretion for DREAMers is solely based on the individual’s claims. Our orders are: If an alien says they went to high school, then let them go. If they say they have a GED, then let them go.”

“Officers have been told that there is no burden for the alien to prove anything,” he continued. “Even with the greatly relaxed policies, the alien is not required to prove that they meet any of the new criteria.”

This new directive contradicts Homeland Security’s own words: “Only those individuals who can prove through verifiable documentation that they meet these criteria will be eligible for deferred action.”

Evidence of this new policy was detailed in a story last month at CDN by Pinal County Arizona Sheriff Paul Babeu. As soon as the new policy went into effect so called ‘dreamers’ were allowed to be released if they simply told officers they were qualified to stay in the US.

“The lawlessness must end,” Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions, whose office organized the presser, said. “They’ve handcuffed and muffled those charged with protecting the public safety and the integrity of our borders,” Sessions said. “Such action has not only weakened our security but our democracy. All Americans, immigrant and native born, will have a better future if our nation remains unique in the world for its special reverence for the rule of law and fairness in our immigration system.”

Senator Chuck Grassley R(IA), the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said the policy is a political act by Obama meant to garner votes. “The president campaigns in 2008 that, in the first year, he’s going to have immigration issues solved,” Grassley said. “At this point, after three-and-a-half years, we have not seen any bill whatsoever. So, then as is a core pattern in this administration, you got to blame somebody else, so it [the administration] comes up with this statement: ‘if Congress won’t, I will.’”

In a tight presidential election will this obvious attempt to buy votes further endear DREAM Act subscribers to the Obama camp or will the blatant overstepping of the president through executive order turn away voters?

Dear Terrorists and other enemies of the USA around the world

I just wanted to drop you a line, and remind you how hard I have been working here in Washington to make things easier for you. Thanks to the recent ruling by the Court here, I’ll be ignoring our southern border – I don’t really care about that crazy woman out in Arizona. While I can’t give arms to the drug cartels anymore, I have no plans to give in to the GOP on Fast and Furious. Of course, if it becomes necessary, I have no qualms about hanging Holder out to dry.

Also, the media is on top of demonizing the opposition. And I’ve started assembling lawyers to contest the results, if the election doesn’t go exactly my way. I’ve even got groups to silence conservatives on Twitter, and have a team dedicated to bullying webhosts into shutting down websites of my detractors.

It’s true that the FBI is keeping tabs on extremists in the military, but that simply can’t be helped. That’s just too noticeable to allow. But, there is still the lack of security on the Mexican border in your favor. And that is costing me votes – not to mention, it’s making a majority of Americans think I actually want to encourage illegal immigration. Too bad you only managed to train a Norwegian man as an operative. But, he shouldn’t have any difficulty sneaking into the US over either border. He could probably just fly in anyway. It’s not like I’m demanding efficiency or competency from the TSA.

But, one thing is, I really do need you to act soon. It can’t be too close to the elections here in November, because that might be too suspicious. And I’ll need time to muster up some sympathy, and get the message out there that we need to be a united nation against the threat. Obviously, we don’t want to let the people know that it was all constructed by me in the first place, so make sure you have control of your people. Well, that probably isn’t a problem, because you probably aren’t telling them that you’re conspiring with me in the first place!

Sincerely
Barack H. Obama

**Obviously, this is not an actual letter from our President to unnamed terrorists. Well, here’s hoping that he’s never actually written anything like this! If he had, no doubt he would say that it is protected by Executive Privilege.
