Rep Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) visited the southern border recently, which was interesting to follow via remarks and photos on Twitter (@jasoninthehouse). He was pretty shocked at one border crossing spot which not only isn’t fenced, but has a handrail and convenient steps leading to the Rio Grande. We wouldn’t want any illegal alien to stub [...]
The Obama administration insists that the border is secure enough to justify an amnesty for millions, even though just the chatter on that subject has doubled the number of illegals heading north to get the new welfare+jobs program for lawbreaking foreigners.
Now we learn that a new kind of radar, mounted on a drone, shows that [...]
Unsurprisingly, the Washington chatter about amnesty has enticed more job-thieving foreigners to flood across America’s southern perimeter. The illegal aliens obviously have little faith in the Obama administration’s commitment to checking the length of residence and other background examinations to weed out fraudsters.
Oh wait. “No human is illegal” — that’s the Democrat belief.
Future Democrats heed [...]
How much does the Obama administration despise public safety? Let’s count the ways. First, there is the wholesale attack on the gun ownership of law-abiding citizens, who use firearms to protect themselves and their families.
Then the sequester excuse was used to release thousands of illegal alien criminals slated for deportation.
The latest attack on public safety [...]
One of the tiny barriers on the national suicide via sovereignty abolition is the idea of border security as a prerequisite to the mass legalization amnesty. Even the great diverse hope of the elite GOP Marco Rubio said that his support for the Gang of Eight amnesty plot depends on the border being secured.
Now questions [...]
When the Gang of Eight amnesty Senators outlined a framework for their anti-sovereignty scheme, a basic piece was the commission that would decide when the Mexican border was secure. That board would consist of governors, community members, and attorneys general living on the Southwest border.
An inquiring mind might ask whether those community members would include [...]
One might think that guns going to Mexican cartels would be used to murder rival gangsters in the ongoing regional skirmishes over turf in the country. That supposition is not entirely true, according to a recent investigation by Univision, which discovered gunwalked weapons were used in the terrible 2010 Juarez massacre where 16 people, mostly teens, [...]
The current administration keeps repeating that the border is secure and nobody is crossing illegally any more (despite numerous indications otherwise), so a recent report from Texas is informative.
Ranchers are the first responders in the alien invasion, and they say it’s still violent and dangerous for all concerned.
The Texas Department of Agriculture has recorded a [...]
The recent media reports of illegal immigration decreasing to net zero always seemed a little convenient for Obama. Once the border had been “secured” then Obama could advance his comprehensive amnesty scheme in order to keep his illegal alien base happy.
Another report puts operational border security at only 13 percent. And Obama has admitted that [...]
Well into the 21st century, Washington continues its failure to protect our sovereign borders after decades of broken promises. The feds have spent billions of dollars on failed schemes, and now the result is a miniscule 13 percent operational control.
A score of 13 percent is a failing grade even for government work.
It’s relevant to remember [...]
Serious national security experts say that the southern border is dangerously insecure, and Washington is in denial about the danger, ignoring Mexican narco-terrorism at America’s peril.
Texas border sheriffs participated in a press conference for the roll-out of a new report, Texas Border Security: A Strategic Military Assessment, written by Barry McCaffrey and Robert Scales who [...]
This item is definitely for the “What could possibly go wrong?” file. The idea is crazy and dangerous.
First, it is suspicious that this news was released on a Friday in late August, which makes it look like the Obama administration hopes it will pass unnoticed.
The White House spin is that the extreme violation of sovereignty [...]
