House Acts to Take Back American Territory from Cartels

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 [...]

Mexican Criminal Finally Imprisoned after Five Prior Repatriations

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 [...]

Patrick Kennedy Speaks for Mental Health

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 [...]

Mexican Cartels Operate Freely in Southern Arizona

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 [...]

Arizona Sheriff: Illegal Alien Crime Is Getting Worse

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 [...]

Terror on the Border Worsens

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.

ATF's Project Gunrunner Scandal Gets More Pressure from Congress

The May 3 hearing of the House Judiciary Committee on Justice Department Oversight with Attorney General Eric Holder was quite a lively one. (Watch the hearing on C-SPAN.)

Chair Lamar Smith noted the administration’s hypocrisy about immigration being a federal issue, when it attacked Arizona for enforcement but let Utah slide for its amnesty-lite approach. Rep. [...]

Rep. Bishop Excoriates Border Bureaucrats

It was great to see Rep. Rob Bishop (R-UT), the Chairman of the House Resources Subcommittee on National Parks, Forests and Public Lands, tear into the border suits who defend policies that threaten national security.

The April 15 hearing, titled “The Border: Are Environmental Laws and Regulations Impeding Security and Harming the Environment?,” was an opportunity [...]

Senator Pearce: Arizona Update

Politico has a piece written by Arizona State Senator Russell Pearce explaining recent voting (not positive for enforcement) and how long it took to get SB1070 passed. Pearce emphasized how the war for American sovereignty and safety from hostile invasion requires tenacity over years.

As long as Mexico sees exporting its cheap workers north as advantageous, [...]

Janet Napolitano Repeats Propaganda That the Border Is Secure

The Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security angered many Americans when she claimed a year ago that the southern border was “as secure now as it has ever been.”

Now she is back with the same propaganda, despite the border region suffering from “more vandalism, more threats, it was worse,” according to Rep. Ed Royce [...]

Arizona: Another Candidate Worm Turns (to Border Enforcement)

Rep. Jeff Flake (R-AZ, with a D+ recent voting grade) has been a long-time friend of illegal alien amnesty for millions, aka “comprehensive reform” in the Orwellian newspeak that is now the norm in Washington.

However, he is “repositioning” himself on border enforcement now that he envisions himself as Arizona’s next Senator, with the retirement of [...]

Priorities Considered: Libya vs. U.S. Border Security

The recent Libyan adventure/war unleashed by the President is a fine indicator of Obama values. Even establishing a mere no-fly zone over a camel-filled country is not exactly peanuts, but once BHO had made up his mind, he sent an array of planes and bombs into the fray, in which the “rebels” America is defending [...]
