On the propaganda front, the ridiculous idea that Mexican immigration is nearing zero is catching on. The great fount of liberal disinformation is to blame (see my analysis of the recent NYT article New York Times: Mexican Invasion Is Over.)
Michael Barone has taken the notion to the extreme in a recent opinion piece extolling his [...]
Earlier this week the DHS announced that Secretary Napolitano would present a new plan to deal with southwestern perimeter crime, called the Southwest Border Counternarcotics Strategy.
When Napolitano did make her speech in Nogales, Arizona, only drug smuggling was mentioned, at least as reported by the mainstream media.
Is illegal immigration no longer an acceptable subject for [...]
Arizona State Senator Russell Pearce is a leader in the movement for the states to do more of the immigration enforcement, since the federal government has shown little enthusiasm for the heavy lifting. He reports that Arizona is improving after instituting its state laws (modeled on federal statutes): jobs are up and crime is down. [...]
On Sunday, the San Francisco Chronicle presented a photo essay about Guatemalans being deported home from Mesa, Arizona. The one paragraph of accompanying text did not portray the event positively, particularly regarding the Secure Communities program which it deems “controversial.” The liberal press has apparently decided that open borders are more important than public safety.
Undocumented Guatemalens [...]
It was amusing that newly minted border defender (for his 2010 re-election campaign) Senator John McCain angered his old pals in La Raza by telling the truth about the spate of border-area wildfires in Arizona — that some were started by illegal aliens and Mexican drug smugglers.
Here’s Sheriff Larry Dever saying that he estimated the [...]
Good for Senator John McCain (something I don’t say very often) for stating out loud that many of Arizona’s destructive wildfires have been started by illegal aliens.
Interestingly, wildfires often occur along the invaders’ favorite routes, as noted in the June 15 Arizona Star, Another major fire in a smuggling corridor.
However, the cause of border-area fires [...]
There’s good news from the House of Representatives, where positive small-ball immigration enforcement legislation was passed last week.
One example was Rep. Steve King’s amendment to fund the removal of Mexican cartel spotters located in this country who direct the movement of drugs and aliens across the border and north.
The surrender of American territory to Mexican [...]
Below is an example of much that’s wrong with US immigration policy. Ricardo Elvin Martinez of Guadalajara, Mexico, has been deported five times and has been convicted of 24 offenses, including robbery, but apparently has suffered no more severe punishment than five free trips home.
Why would anyone be surprised that he returned numerous times to [...]
After the shooting of Rep. Gabriel Giffords by a disturbed college dropout, I wrote that the crime was a failure of the community to demand mental health treatment for the young man, rather than of gun control (e.g. PBS Examines Mental Health Intervention in Light of Giffords Shooting).
Pima Community College knew very well that Jared [...]
How extensive is the Mexican organized crime’s incursion into American territory? Very extensive, and getting worse, judging from the presence of cartel spotters 100 miles north of the border. Not only that, authorities estimate that there are 200 to 300 cartel scouts occupying mountain peaks in southern Arizona, guiding the delivery of drugs and illegal [...]
In a Newsmax interview, Sheriff Larry Dever of Cochise County refuted claims of the administration that the border is secure.
Dever said he was speaking out because President Obama’s recent assertions of border safety were not accurate according to the sheriff’s ground-level experience.
As well as appearing on tv, the internet (an interview with Hot Air) and [...]
The teaming up of Mexican drug cartels and Muslims who hate us is surely a marriage made in hell, but Washington’s disinterest in the border has encouraged them to expand their partnership.
The video below from Hannity is an update on the connection between Mexican organized crime and hostile Islam.
