Almost half of uninsured in America illegal aliens

Poverty is down and median income is up, according to just released census figures 2006, Current Population Survey. (pdf) Reporting: Molly Henneberg, Fox News Channel.

2006: number of uninsured in America 47 million people, or 15.8% of the population.2005: number of uninsured in America 44.8 million people, or 15.3% of the population.

Joseph Antos, American Enterprise Institute, looks inside the numbers, because they are very misleading.

Broken down by legal vs. illegal uninsured who are NOT U.S. CITIZENS IS 45% of the 47 million.Broken down by age, 18 – 24 years old – 29.3% of the 47 million.

25 – 35 years old – 26.9% of the 47 million.

Broken down by salary, $75,000 or more per year – 8.5% of the 47 million.

Did you get that? Almost half of the uninsured in America are ILLEGAL ALIENS. Think what a financial break to our hospitals and doctors it would be, if the illegals were not here. Just a thought.

Also if you do the math 45% (illegal aliens) of 47 million is over 20 million illegal aliens inside the United States. Fact.

Immigration Raid in Cincinnati Nets 200 Illegal Immigrants

29 08 2007

Cross posted from The Virtuous Republic

An immigration raid, at a chicken processing plant, just north of Cincinnati rounded up 200 illegal aliens according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. In addition to the raid in Fairfield, ICE served search warrants at the home offices of Koch Foods in Chicago.

Immigration agents raided a poultry packaging facility in Fairfield early today and arrested as many as 200 illegal immigrants who were working there.

The raid, one of the largest of its kind this year in Greater Cincinnati, is part of a two-year investigation into the hiring practices at the Chicago-based Koch Foods Company.

The Fairfield processing facility is located at 4100 Port Union Road in Fairfield.

Immigration officials described Koch Foods as an “egregious violator” of U.S. immigration laws, which means the company is suspected of knowingly hiring undocumented workers.

Brian Moskowitz, a special agent in charge of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for Ohio and Michigan, said agents arrived with search warrants today and seized documents and other materials that could be used to build a criminal case against company officials. Search warrants also were served today at the company’s Chicago offices.

Congratulations to ICE and Bulter County officials for conducting this raid. Right now, this nation is suffering because for years our elected officials have refused to guard the border and enforce our immigration laws. Finally due to pressure from ordinary Americans, our government, rather grudgingly, is starting to attack the problem of illegal immigration.

Additionally, the other part of the equation is a corporate culture of corruption. Our CEO’s knowingly approve the hiring of illegal aliens to keep costs down, improve profits and ultimately line their own pockets with bonuses. But what is the cost of this corporate corruption? Local wages are depressed, local governments are saddled with the burden of providing education and medical benefits for illegals. And because of companies like Koch, our country keeps attracting illegal aliens who have no interest in becoming Americans. Illegal aliens only do the jobs at wages Americans will not accept.

Arizona’s New Hiring Laws are Already Working

29 08 2007

Cross posted from   The Virtuous Republic

The Arizona Republic describes the effect the state’s “impending” new law requiring employers to verify the immigration status of employees has on illegal immigrants.

It’s impossible to count how many undocumented immigrants have fled because of the new law. But based on interviews with undocumented immigrants, immigrant advocates, community leaders and real-estate agents, at least several hundred have left since Democratic Gov. Janet Napolitano signed the bill on July 2. There are an estimated 500,000 illegal immigrants in Arizona.

Some are moving to other states, where they think they will have an easier time getting jobs. Others are returning to Mexico, selling their effects and putting their houses on the market.

The number departing is expected to mushroom as the Jan. 1 deadline draws closer. After that, the law will require employers to verify the employment eligibility of their workers through a federal database.

“I would say we are losing at least 100 people a day,” said Elias Bermudez, founder of Immigrants Without Borders and host of a daily talk-radio program aimed at undocumented immigrants.

Immigration hard-liners say the exodus is a sign the employer-sanctions law is working, even before it becomes official. The law is aimed at shutting off the job magnet by imposing harsh penalties on employers caught knowingly hiring unauthorized workers. Violators face a 10-day suspension of their business license for a first offense and could lose their license for a second offense.

“This is exactly what it is supposed to do. (Illegal immigrants) have no business being here, none,” said Rep. Russell Pearce, R-Mesa, the main architect of the employer-sanctions law. “Shut off the lights, and the crowd will go home. I hope they will all self-deport.” Read the rest here….

The experiment in Arizona, which hasn’t even really started yet, shows that the enforcement of our current laws in combination with taking away the lure for illegal aliens, i.e., jobs, works. The program hasn’t even started, and illegal immigrants are beginning to move on to greener pastures or as the story notes, return to Mexico.

Of course those states without a law like Arizona will have to quickly adopt such a measure or they will be inundated with illegal immigrants.

If you read the rest of the article, you will see that the usual suspects on the left are already declaring Arizona’s economy will implode without illegal immigrant labor. Marxists and their ilk, who have no respect for our borders, obviously don’t understand the free market. Illegal labor itself has been distorting the market by allow employers to pay substandard wages for certain classes of jobs. To attract legal labor, individuals and businesses (who were breaking the law in the first place) will have to now pay prevailing wages. Some prices may go up and some people may do without some services like child or lawn care. So be it.

In the long run, the market will adjust and Arizona will see several benefits as social services, schools, hospitals, and police departments will require fewer tax dollars as they will no longer have to deal with hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants.

Edwards’s poverty “plague” examined

28 08 2007

The Census Bureau will release its annual report on poverty in America tomorrow. The report will show, as it has in the past that around 37 million people live in “official poverty”. Presidential candidate John Edwards, who is running on the concept of the “Two Americas”, the haves and have nots, will, no doubt try to exploit this report for his own political ambitions.

From The National Review:

In the past, Edwards has claimed that poverty in America is a “plague” which forces 37 million Americans to live in “terrible” circumstances. According to Edwards, an amazing “one in eight” Americans lack “enough money for the food, shelter, and clothing they need,” caught in a daily “struggle with incredible poverty.”

However, examination of the living standards of the 37 million or so persons, the government defines as “poor,” reveals that America’s poverty “plague” may not be as “terrible” or “incredible” as anti-poverty crusader Edwards contends.

If being “poor” means (as Edwards claims it does) a lack of nutritious food, adequate warm housing, and clothing for a family, then very few of America’s 37 million official “poor” people can be regarded as actually poor. Some material hardship does exist in the United States, but, in reality, it is quite restricted in scope and severity.

The following are facts about persons defined as “poor” by the Census Bureau, taken from a variety of government reports:

46 percent of all poor households actually own their own homes. The average home owned by persons classified as poor by the Census Bureau is a three-bedroom house with one-and-a-half baths, a garage, and a porch or patio.

80 percent of poor households have air conditioning. By contrast, in 1970, only 36 percent of the entire U.S. population enjoyed air conditioning.

Only six percent of poor households are overcrowded; two thirds have more than two rooms per person.

The typical poor American has more living space than the average individual living in Paris, London, Vienna, Athens, and other cities throughout Europe. (These comparisons are to the average citizens in foreign countries, not to those classified as poor.)

Nearly three quarters of poor households own a car; 31 percent own two or more cars.

97 percent of poor households have a color television; over half own two or more color televisions.

78 percent have a VCR or DVD player.

62 percent have cable or satellite TV reception.

89 percent own microwave ovens, more than half have a stereo, and a more than a third have an automatic dishwasher.

As a group, America’s poor are far from being chronically undernourished. The average consumption of protein, vitamins, and minerals is virtually the same for poor and middle-class children and, in most cases, is well above recommended norms. Poor children actually consume more meat than do higher-income children and have average protein intakes 100-percent above recommended levels. Most poor children today are, in fact, super-nourished and grow up to be, on average, one inch taller and ten pounds heavier than the GIs who stormed the beaches of Normandy in World War II.

While the poor are generally well-nourished, some poor families do experience temporary food shortages. But, even this condition is relatively rare; 89 percent of the poor report their families have “enough” food to eat, while only two percent say they “often” do not have enough to eat.

Overall, the typical American defined as poor by the government has a car, air conditioning, a refrigerator, a stove, a clothes washer and dryer, and a microwave. He has two color televisions, cable or satellite TV reception, a VCR, or DVD player, and a stereo. He is able to obtain medical care. His home is in good repair and is not overcrowded. By his own report, his family is not hungry, and he had sufficient funds in the past year to meet his family’s essential needs. While this individual’s life is not opulent, it is far from the popular images of dire poverty conveyed by the press, liberal activists, and politicians.

Wow, that sounds terrible! Those poor people! Imagine being forced to live in a three-bedroom house with one-and-a-half baths, a garage, and a porch or patio? 97 percent of “poor people” have color tvs and more than half two or more? Oh, the horror! We have got to save these people from this life!

I keep saying poverty is relative and there is no true poverty in this country. We have got to be the only country in the world who have fat homeless people.

Much official poverty that does exist in the United States can be reduced, particularly among children. There are two main reasons that American children are poor: Their parents don’t work much, and their fathers are absent from the home.

In both good and bad economic environments, the typical American poor family with children is supported by only 800 hours of work during a year — the equivalent of 16 hours of work per week. If work in each family were raised to 2,000 hours per year — the equivalent of one adult working 40 hours per week throughout the year — nearly 75 percent of poor children would be lifted out of official poverty.

As noted above, father absence is another major cause of child poverty. Nearly two thirds of poor children reside in single-parent homes; each year, an additional 1.5 million children are born out of wedlock. If poor mothers married the fathers of their children, nearly three quarters of the nation’s impoverished youth would immediately be lifted out of poverty.

Yet, although work and marriage are reliable ladders out of poverty, the welfare system perversely remains hostile to both. Major programs such as food stamps, public housing, and Medicaid continue to reward idleness and penalize marriage. If welfare could be turned around to encourage work and marriage, the nation’s remaining poverty could be reduced.

Now this guy is just being plain mean. How dare he say people should get married, raise their children and work hard? He must be some crazy conservative.

Another important factor boosting poverty in the U.S. is our broken immigration system which imports hundreds of thousands of additional poor people each year from abroad through both legal and illegal immigration channels. One quarter of all poor persons in the U.S. are now first generation immigrants or the minor children of those immigrants. Roughly one in ten of the persons counted among the poor by Census is either an illegal immigrant or the minor child of an illegal. Immigrants tend to be poor because they have very low education levels. A quarter of legal immigrants and fifty to sixty percent of illegals are high-school dropouts. By contrast, only nine percent of non-immigrant Americans lack a high school degree.

As long as the present steady flow of poverty-prone persons from foreign countries continues, efforts to reduce the total number of poor in the U.S. will be far more difficult. A sound anti-poverty strategy must not only seek to increase work and marriage among native born Americans, it must also end illegal immigration, and dramatically increase the skill level of future legal immigrants.

Oh, now he has definitely gone too far! How dare he point ou that we are importing poverty?? How dare he bemoan the hard working immigrants, legal and illegal aliens? This guy is obviously a racist who hates immigrants! We have got to demand he be fired immediately for expressing these ideas!

It is time to wake up to the FACTS in life and stop dreaming of utopia and communism. We have got to secure our borders and get rid of the illegal aliens. We cannot and should not import the worlds poor. For those of you that think we should, stop complaining there are poor people in our country; you want them here!

A country is not a country without borders. We must control our immigration and only allow immigrants that can contribute to our country, not live off it and bring it down.

Arsonist – Another job Americans won’t do?

27 08 2007

Cross posted from   Bear Creek Ledger

An illegal alien set fire to a hotel in Chattanooga, Tn on August 14th and finally we see a judge with a modicum of common sense.

Judge Tells Illegal Alien He is “Unwelcome Undesirable”

General Sessions Court Judge Bob Moon said the man charged with setting a fire in a downtown hotel is “an unwelcome undesirable” illegal alien.Judge Moon told Bario Gomez, “Undesirables like you are not welcome in this country. You are a Latino terrorist who entered this country illegally and soon plotted significant personal injury and damage to the people and businesses in our community.”

Authorities said Gomez is an illegal alien with no proof of identification. Officials also said he gave police a false name.

The INS [edit: should be ICE!] placed a hold on Gomez, 20, after charges of aggravated arson and aggravated vandalism were filed against him.

Judge Moon told him, “It is undesirables like you who create many unjustifiable problems and prejudices upon the good people who enter this country legally in chasing a dream for a better life for themselves and their families.

“Mr. Gomez, you nor any other citizen from a foreign land has a right to enter this country; you simply have a privilege to enter this country through the proper legal channels.

“You are a domestic terrorist who is an imminent threat to the safety of our people and their property. You are also a supreme flight risk from justice. It is with duty, comfort and ease that I increase your bond significantly in an appropriate amount to insure your appearance in further proceedings and to insure the safety of this community.”

The bond was raised from $30,000 to $1 million. The previous bond was set by Magistrate James Purple, which Judge Moon described as “another ludicrously low bond.”

I’m sure the ACLU and La Raza will disagree with Judge Moon and say this was just a hard working “undocumented” immigrant doing the job Americans won’t do.  Judge Moon is just being a racist and nativist.

Let’s see now we can arsonist to the growing list of jobs like child rapist, child molester, rapist, drunk driving, vehicular manslaughter, illegal drug seller, gang banger and just plain old murderer.

Mexican Officials Help to Smuggle People Across the U.S. Border

27 08 2007

Cross posted from   The Virtuous Republic

At least these Mexican officials were getting paid to smuggle illegals into the United States. Our officials, federal and local, do for free what lesser men like these charge for.

The Mexican Attorney General’s office announced Thursday the arrest of two immigration officials suspected of using their positions to lead an illegal human trafficking ring.

Along with the suspects, police on Monday seized five luxury vehicles, seven firearms — four of which are illegal — migration documents, U.S. visas, passports and other illegal documents, authorities said in a news release. The goods have an estimated value of $850,000 .

The two suspects, identified as Oscar Manuel Navarrete Orozco and Maria America Maldonado, worked for the National Immigration Institute in the state of Guanajuato, 200 miles northeast of Mexico City. They face charges of organized crime, trafficking of undocumented persons and running operations with illegally obtained resources.

Illegal migration is one of Mexico’s most serious problems. Statistics from the immigration institute indicate that more than 182,000 undocumented migrants were detained in Mexico in 2006. The vast majority were Central Americans from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador en route to the United States.

Some Just Don’t Get It: Census Bureau Asks That Immigration Raids Be Halted

27 08 2007

Cross posted from   The Virtuous Republic

Did you hear this one? The Census Bureau asked ICE to suspend immigration raids during the 2010 census so as not to scare illegal aliens. This is the mindset that proponents of secured borders have to battle. At least ICE said no.

Census officials had planned to speak with immigration agents about curbing enforcement during the population count, the Census Bureau’s second-ranking official said in an interview earlier this week.

Raids during the population count would make an already distrustful group even less likely to cooperate with government workers who are supposed to include them in the headcount, Deputy Director Preston Jay Waite had said.

When asked Thursday if the immigration enforcement agency would consider suspending raids during the census, spokeswoman Pat Reilly said, “If we were, we wouldn’t talk about it.”

“We’re an investigative agency,” she added. “We don’t talk about how we target our enforcement activities.”

The Constitution requires the Census Bureau to count everyone, including illegal immigrants, in the census.

Immigration agents informally agreed to cooperate with the Census Bureau during the 2000 census by not conducting any large-scale raids, said Waite and Kenneth Prewitt, who directed the Census Bureau during the 2000 count.

Public discussion about possibly repeating the policy in 2010 knocked the Bush administration off message a week after two members of the president’s Cabinet announced stepped-up efforts to enforce the nation’s immigration laws.

Nantel said she wanted to clarify the enforcement agency’s position.

“I don’t want there to be any question in the American people’s mind as to whether or not ICE would suspend enforcement efforts,” Nantel said. “The answer to that is emphatically no.”

National Intelligence Director Confirms Terrorists Cross into U.S. from Mexico

27 08 2007

Cross posted from   The Virtuous Republic 

Mike McConnell, National Intelligence Director, admitted the other day that Iraqi terrorists have crossed into the U.S. from Mexico. Some have been caught, others haven’t. To me, it just proves that our vast unguarded southern border is a national security nightmare that has been ignored for too long.

President Bush’s top intelligence aide has confirmed that Iraqi terrorists have been captured coming into the United States from Mexico.

The confirmation comes from National Intelligence Director Mike McConnell, who talked about the situation in an interview with the El Paso Times recently.

“Coming up through the Mexican border is a path,” McConnell said. “Now, are they doing it in great numbers? No, because we’re finding them and we’re identifying them and we’ve got watch lists and we’re keeping them at bay.”

But, he said, “There are numerous situations where people are alive today because we caught them (terrorists).”

Intelligence officials say the numbers and details of such situations are classified, but McConnell pointed as an example to Mahmoud Youssef Kourani, who entered the United States through Tijuana, Mexico, in 2001, and later pleaded guilty to helping raise money for Hezbollah, which has been designated by the U.S. government as a terrorist organization.

The goal, McConnell said, is for terrorists to gain admittance to the United States, and then produce “mass casualties.”

“You’ve got committed leadership. You’ve got a place to train. They’ve got trainers, and they’ve got recruits,” McConnell told the newspaper. “The key now is getting recruits in. So if your key is getting recruits in, how would you do that?”

McConnell’s office did reveal some numbers, during fiscal 2006, there were 14 Iraqi nationals caught trying to enter the U.S. illegally, while so far in 2007, that number is 16.

“Now some we caught, some we didn’t,” McConnell told the newspaper. “The ones that get in – what are they going to do? They’re going to write home. So it’s not rocket science; word will move around.”

Also revealed was that the U.S. Customs and Border Protection intercepted 60 Iraqis crossing the nation’s southwestern border in 2006 who were seeking asylum in the U.S., while that number so far in 2007 is 178.

The Times report said a U.S. intelligence analyst said there’s been evidence that human smugglers, or coyotes, are telling Iraqis to ask for amnesty if they are caught.

The typical scenario is this: Forged documents are used to get an Iraqi into a country in South or Central America. Since travel from country to country is allowed without vises in many locations there, they work their way north to the U.S. border.

McConnell told the newspaper the numbers are classified, but there have been a relatively small number of people with known links to terrorist groups who have been caught at that point.

Kourani, for example, apparently paid a Mexican Consulate official in Lebanon $3,000 for a Mexican visa and then was smuggled into the United States in the trunk of a car.

He was sentenced to more than four years in prison after admitting he helped raise funds for Hezbollah.

Mexican-Mexican Living in the United States

27 08 2007

Cross posted from   Bear Creek Ledger

I have to say I love this column by Ann Coulter.  She nails Elvira Arellano.

Still, if Elvira Arellano is the best they’ve got to change public opinion on deporting illegal aliens, don’t expect public opinion to change anytime soon.

Arellano has already snuck into the country illegally twice (that we know of). After being deported in 1999 — under an administration that, astonishingly, was more serious about enforcing immigration law than the current one — she illegally ran across the border again a few days later.

Only after 9/11 was she arrested again and convicted for using a stolen Social Security number to get a job as a cleaning woman at an airport. In lieu of jail time, Arellano was to be deported. Instead she took refuge in a left-wing “church” and began to bellyache about being thrown out again.

Despite living in this country illegally for a decade, Arellano hasn’t mastered the most rudimentary English. She doesn’t want to assimilate and become a “Mexican-American.” She wants to be a Mexican-Mexican living in and off America.

Ann also lists a few of the criminal illegal aliens reported on in just the last week, there’s the executors, child molesters and murderers.

Illegal Immigrant Charged In Child’s Death

23 08 2007

Cross Posted from My Country My View





FROM : – The News On 6

KOTV – 8/22/2007 8:16 PM – Updated 8/23/2007 6:16 AM

Charges are filed in the kicking death of a Coweta toddler.

BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5101980134736576722MichaelHernandez was in a Wagoner County district court Wednesday, facingfirst degree murder charges. He’s accused of kicking his girlfriend’s2-year-old son to death.

A judge denied Hernandez bond,but the victim’s family is concerned his immigration status could change that, because he’s here illegally from Mexico.

The News On6’s Ashli Sims reports the victim’s grandmother says she’s worried hemight be sent back to Mexico before justice can be served.

Kelynn Byrd’s grandmother says burying her 2-year-old grandson was the hardest thing she ever had to do.

“He is, he’s very beautiful and he was so sweet,” said Kelynn’s grandmother Michelle Ebel.

The toddler’s life was cut short when he died from blunt chest and abdominal trauma.
Police say his mother’s boyfriend, Michael Hernandez, was the only one home at the time of the boy’s injury.
And they say Hernandez confessed to repeatedly kicking Kelynn in the chest.

“Whatever kind of anger that can lead up to someone doing that to a 2-and-a-half-year-old boy is just beyond me,” said Ebel.

Hernandezis charged with first degree murder and is now behind bars in theWagoner County jail. The judge in the case contacted the Mexicanconsulate, because Hernandez is a Mexican citizen, here illegally.Kelynn’s family is afraid that Hernandez could be sent back to Mexicobefore the American legal system can run its course.

A spokesperson from the Wagoner County district attorney’s office told The News On 6 they would fight any extradition or deportation. He saysthey plan on proceeding to a conviction, and if Hernandez is convicted they intend for him to serve his sentence in Oklahoma.

U.S.Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, confirms that illegal immigrants would go through the same criminal justice process as anyoneelse.

ICE says they do flag illegal immigrants in statecustody, so if they’re eligible for bond, they’re released into ICE custody instead of back into the community. ICE also added if Hernandez was tried and convicted for the murder of Kelynn Byrd he would serve his sentence first, and then be deported back to Mexico.

Michael Hernandez will be back in court next month for a preliminary hearing.

Is Your Church a Secret Sanctuary?

23 08 2007

 Cross Posted from   Faultline USA

Disclaimer: This article does not discount the faith of those true pacifists who have plumbed the depths of their Christian conscience and ardently believe that there is no such thing as a just war, or that no person should ever be turned away regardless of individual circumstances.

The growth of leftist Christianity within Catholicism, Mainline Protestantism, and even among Evangelical Christians, is a frightening phenomena that has received scant attention. Last week’s news of the arrest and deportation of the Sanctuary movement’s spokesperson, Elvira Arellano, highlights not only the strength of the left within urban churches, but Marxist Christianity (or Liberation Theology) is a fast-growing evolution of heretical Christianity effecting every little congregation is the U.S.

Elvira Arellano became the face behind the nation’s immigration debate when she sought refuge from immigration authorities in a Chicago church a year ago.
U.S. immigration officials had ordered her deportation for working at O’Hare International Airport using a false Social Security number.
But Arellano holed up for a year in the Chicago sanctuary so she wouldn’t be separated from her 8-year-old U.S. citizen son.

Many traditional American’s have failed to realize the actual links between today’s political movements and our churches. Many of these links come through denominational sponsored charitable networks and coalitions such as the National Council of Churches.

The National Council of Churches Supports the U.N. . . .It’s not as simple as the NCC agreeing with your philosophy…it’s the matter of a percentage of the funds you give to your church being sent to the headquarters of your denomination and from there, likely, a donation made to the NCC. These figures are difficult to confirm, but the National Council of Churches must be funded in some manner. On the positive side, reports that donations from mainstream churches have significantly declined, but have been replaced with funds from political-action groups – and numerous qualify as “far-left” activism.

Some political movements have made genuine progress for humanity in this country. One example comes from the Black church in America. There is no doubt that the civil rights movement would have gone nowhere if it were not for the political activism within the Black churches in America. The strength of the Black churches in America is evidenced by the fact that until recently almost every Black politician who managed to gain national recognition had a Rev. next to his/her name.

It would be a grave mistake to discount the growing political activism and influence the leftist church is exerting on the questions of warfare and of immigration. The New Sanctuary movement is already becoming entrenched within many Christian denominations. This is an excerpt from their web page:

The New Sanctuary Movement is a coalition of interfaith religious leaders and participating congregations, called by our faith to respond actively and publicly to the suffering of our immigrant brothers and sisters residing in the United States. . . .

Called by faith to respond . . .

Unfortunately, there are many wolves in sheep’s clothing who masquerade as Christians within denominational leadership, and these Marxists have found the key to manipulating the church faithful into funding those groups that foster attacks on the sovereignty of these United States.

The left is gaining converts daily by an appeal to a false Christian guilt that would equate law-breakers who leave their country to improve their economic condition with slavery or with political refugees who are facing torture, death, or genocide within their home nations. Here’s an example of the sweetly twisted rhetoric:

The Gospel message calls us to welcome the stranger and to stand in solidarity with the least of these,” said Chett Pritchett, Wesley Theological Seminary student. “It’s not a political issue, it is a Christian issue.” . . .

Make no mistake. This IS a political issue!!!

Nowhere do any of these open border Marxist activists mention our Christian duty to protect, to defend, or to preserve our nation against an invasion of people that come here illegally flaunting our laws with no intention of assimilation and who would destroy the very fabric of our nation. No where do these open border activists mention that it is every Christian’s duty to protect the future of their country for their children. Nowhere do these leftists mention the long-standing traditional Christian understanding of just warfare as they sabotage the war in Iraq.

How do the leftist Christians manage to out trump years of Christian tradition? The first step (begun many years ago) is to promote the “social gospel” which emphasizes social justice and at the same time denigrates individualism. Christians are urged to think with a group mind in terms of “community” rather than individual moral choice or even individual salvation. Jesus is portrayed as a revolutionary freedom-fighter. Aggression against the enemy is only fostered if it is the undefined “oppressed people” seeking justice against any form of established government anywhere. It is a revolutionary gospel that hides its true objectives from the church faithful and couches its opposition to Christian tradition in the gentlest religious imagery. Popular in Latin America, Liberation Theology foments world-wide revolutions with the final objective – world-wide Marxist Christianity.

Independent congregations are not as at risk of succumbing to the New Sanctuary Movement as are the denominations. If you are a member of an old venerable Christian denomination the odds are about 99.9% that the movement for sanctuary is well under the control of the growing number of leftist leaders within your denomination’s headquarters and, of course, within the hallowed halls of university seminaries.

Here is a partial list of participating denominations from the New Sanctuary Movement’s web page:

Denominational/Interdenominational National Leadership Present: Unitarian Universalist, United Church of Christ, Episcopal, United Methodist, Union of Reform Judaism, Interfaith Worker Justice. Additional religious traditions: Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Presbyterian, American Friends Service Committee, Evangelical Christian, Muslim, Sikh

The Virtue of War: Reclaiming the Classic Christian Traditions East & West

Here’s an excerpt from a review:

The preeminence of pacifism within the Church as the proper reaction to military conflict is so established within contemporary Christianity that it is sometimes forgotten that this has not been the historic Christian position. Orthodox theologians Alexander F. C. Webster and Darrell Cole remind us of this fact in The Virtue of War, an important apologia for the Christian tradition of the just war. . . The most renowned figures in both Catholicism (St. Ambrose, St. Augustine of Hippo, St Thomas Aquinas) and Protestantism (Martin Luther, John Calvin) all supported the idea of the just war although their presentations and arguments may have varied in approach. . .

Here’s an excerpt from another review of the above book by James V. Schall, S.J. , a professor in the government department at Georgetown University. His latest book is “Roman Catholic Political Philosophy” (Lexington).

The occasion of this book is, no doubt, the aftermath of September 11 and the need to see the proportions of a new kind of war in our time, a new kind that is a very old kind. With the paradox that “war is a virtue” or a “positive good,” the authors force us to look again at actions designed to face evils that few are willing to meet because they cannot understand how doing anything effective can be just. This book is another way of looking at the problem, an ancient way, as it turns out.

It should be noted that defending our country against those who would destroy it (from within or without) falls within the theology of Just Warfare!

Some short excerpts from related articles worth reading:

The Battle for American Unity: . . In the last century, many Christian churches began to focus on inclusiveness and Christian unity became the primary core value. Divisive moral issues were ignored or downplayed. Individual behaviors were never judged. Emphasis was always placed on God’s forgiving love rather than on individual accountability to God.

Your Mainline Christmas Sermon: . . . Just as few Americans are very much aware of the growing influence of Islamofascism on American politics, even fewer Americans are aware of the Marxist trends (born of Liberation Theology) that are fast overcoming mainline denominations and informing new ministers in mainline Protestantism! Catholics and Evangelicals are not immune to this growing trend either.

United Nations Entrenched Within Most Christian Denominations: . . There are over 100,000 local congregations and 45 million Christians supporting the above goals – and most of these Christians don’t even know what they are supporting or that much of their money is going to tax-exempt leftist foundations!!!

Obama’s Liberation Theology Church “. . .The black Christ is he who threatens the structure of evil as seen in white society, rebelling against it, thereby becoming the embodiment of what the black community knows that it must become. . .”

What other’s are saying:

The New Sanctuary Movement is a religious and political network of radical left congregations who claim America’s immigration laws are immoral and — like slavery and Jim Crow laws — should be repealed. . .

Read Whom would Jesus bomb? By Roger W. Gardner

Although I love this very accurate quote from the Vanishing American, I completely disagree with the conclusion .

Certainly the liberalized caricature of Christianity, which is only a shadow of the real Christianity in actual fact, is a religion which would command the West to sacrifice itself for the sake of the ‘wretched of the earth.’ This version of Christianity preaches guilt for our success and material prosperity, and guilt-trips us into giving away what we have to the victims, and sharing all our possessions with them, including our country. Unfortunately this version of Christianity is growing in numbers of adherents; many formerly conservative denominations and churches are being pulled into the vortex of leftist Christianity by liberal clerics and preachers masquerading as traditional Christians, and many formerly conservative Christians are being led by these pied pipers where they would not formerly have gone, into the globalist, universalist system.

Another Example of Why We Need Border Enforcement

23 08 2007

Cross posted from   The Virtuous Republic 

We hear that patrolling the border hurts illegal immigrants who only want to better their lives. We hear that building a border fence will hurt wildlife, divide communities along the border, and destroy archaeological sites. Yet, none of these groups that are for open borders will admit that there is a problem, a problem of crime and criminals entering from Mexico into the United States of America.

On August 21, Border Patrol agents in Arizona had a good day. At the Naco station, they stopped a man from illegally crossing the border. During processing they found, “he had been convicted of having sex with a minor and rape by force or fear in 2003 in San Bernardino County….” Good job guys, you prevented this sexually perverted felon from committing more crimes in the United States.

A little further along the border on the same day, agents captured an SUV loaded with 1,500 pounds of marijuana.

To all those against the border fence, I say that protecting Americans from criminals and drug traffickers trumps the rights of wildlife. Guarding the border does and can work. It just takes a commitment from Washington, which of course requires that ordinary Americans keep up the pressure on their representatives.

Geraldo Rivera, new spokesman for criminal illegal aliens

23 08 2007

Cross posted from    Right Truth

Today Geraldo took the leader of Mothers Against Illegal Aliens on Fox on Your World With Neil Cavuto. Geraldo also took on Tom Tancredo on Hannity and Colmes. I guess he is Fox’s token ‘balanced’ commenter who is FOR criminal illegal aliens inside the United States.

It appears that Geraldo Rivera’s support of criminal illegal aliens is nothing new. Last year he was advocating for Elvira Arellano who took refuge in a Chicago church and was deported this week to Mexico. Geraldo said:

“Isn’t it impossible almost, not to be sympathetic to this mom and her son?” and “Pat isn’t it a kind of bait and switch? We lure the illegals here with the promise of work and now we’re telling them, either leave or be arrested?” [snip]Rivera then went further saying that some compare her “to Rosa Parks and other icons of the civil rights movement.NewsBusters

On the O’Reilly Factor, talking about “Illegal alien Jose Carranza from Peru, who stands accused of raping a five- year-old girl, assaulting some other people, and now murdering the three young people” , Geraldo said, “The last thing that they should be concerned about is the immigration status.” O’Reilly responds:

O’REILLY: Look, these three would be alive. The two in Virginia city — Virginia Beach would be alive if the local authorities cooperated with Homeland Security and reported criminal aliens to ICE. You’ve got to get behind that, Geraldo. That has to happen or we’re going to have more dead people. (Fox)

Illegal charged with kidnapping and attempted sexual assualt of 5 & 6 year old girls

23 08 2007

Cross posted from   Conservative Common Man

August 22nd, 2007 by Sam Pierce

Hat tip to Dubya at Free Republic.

41 year old Ramon Zolora-Solano, an illegal immigrant told two little girls ( ages 5 & 6) who were playing outside in Gastonia, North Carolina to come to his apartment. When the girls said no, he apparently hit them and pulled them by their hair to his apartment. The parents realized they were missing and found them in the apartment. Zolora-Solano had his pants open and one of the girls’ dresses pulled up.

Would amnesty have prevented this? Did this happen because this scared man was forced to live in “the shadows?” Would Geraldo Rivera give this scum-bag a pass because he just wants to live here and work hard?

The immigration reform shamnesty opened the eyes of many Americans to the magnitude of the illegal alien crisis we face. This situation will not be improved by pampering people like Zolora-Solano. Just like the execution style murders in Newark, this attack could have been prevented, for if the illegal alien is not allowed to be in our country he cannot attack our children. Geraldo would say this crime has nothing to do with illegal immigration. I would reiterate that it could not have happen if this illegal immigrant hadn’t been in our country!

This is our country and we have a reasonable right to expect a certain level of safety from foreign criminals while we are on our own soil. We need leadership that is indeed serious about securing our borders, not just paying lip service to a popular issue. We need to urge our government officials to build the damn fence and in November of 2008 we need to elect the man who wrote the law for the fence to be our president.

Huckabee promotes ‘open door’ policy at LULAC convention

21 08 2007

Cross posted from The Uncooperative Blogger

So Huckabee wants to your President? Well, the past can come back to haunt you…

From the Arkansas News Bureau:

Thursday, Jun 30, 2005
By Wesley Brown
Arkansas News Bureau

LITTLE ROCK – In a impassioned speech before hundreds of influential Hispanic civil rights leaders from across the nation, Gov. Mike Huckabee told a captive audience Wednesday that America is great because it has always opened it doors up to people seeking a better way of life.

“Do unto others as you would have others do unto you,” Huckabee said, citing the Golden Rule. “I have tried to govern that way and it stands to reason that I really do believe that what made this great country so great and so unique is that it has always been a place for people to run to – and not run from.

“I would hope that no matter who we are, or where we are from, that America should always be a place that opens its arms, opens it heart, opens its spirit to people who come because they want the best for their families …,” Huckabee said as the largely Hispanic audience gave him a standing ovation.

Huckabee was the keynote speaker, along with Tyson Foods Inc. Chairman and CEO John Tyson, at a noon luncheon of the League of United Latin American Citizens, which is holding its 76th annual convention in Little Rock.

About 10,000 political, community and business leaders, along with exhibitors and speakers are in Little Rock attending the convention at the Statehouse Convention Center. The convention started Monday and runs through Saturday.

Although he never actually talked about the U.S. or Arkansas immigration policy, Huckabee made it very clear where he stood on the issue. In his opening remarks, he said the nation will need to address the concerns of the Hispanic community because of its growing influence and population base.

“Pretty soon, Southern white guys like me may be in the minority,” Huckabee said jokingly as the crowd roared in laughter.

He told the LULAC delegates that their presence in the state’s capital city was very important because Arkansas has one of the fastest growing Hispanic populations in the nation.

“Your gathering is so very significant for our state,” Huckabee said. “We are delighted to have you.”

Despite several light moments, Huckabee did not stray away from several controversial issues that made him a target of criticism during the recently ended 85th General Assembly. He said Arkansas needs to make the transition from a traditional Southern state to one that recognizes and cherishes diversity “in culture, in language and in population.”

“This is an issue that is going to require extraordinary efforts on both sides of the border, particularly those coming from Mexico,” Huckabee said of verifying the status of illegal aliens. “But I am confident that our government will recognize that we should accommodate people who wish to provide the best opportunities for their families (and) employers so that we can make sure our economy has the necessary work force.”

During the legislation session, Huckabee criticized an immigration bill by Republican senators Jim Holt of Springdale and Denny Altes of Fort Smith as un-Christian, un-American, irresponsible and anti-life.

Senate Bill 206, which died in the Senate, would have required proof of citizenship to register to vote and also force state agencies to report suspected cases of people living in the country illegally. Holt, R-Springdale, replied later to Huckabee’s comments that Christian charity does not include turning a blind eye to lawbreaking.

That is all I need to know about this man. we don’t need another El Presidente in this country. no manner of explanation or spin will make me vote for this man.

So, we have seen the raids on Tyson foods and are boycotting them for hiring illegal aliens, let’s see what theCEO of Tyson Foods has to say…

Tyson also credited LULAC leaders for pushing the company to add Hispanics to the Tyson board and promote more Latinos to upper management and executive positions.

He also said in that last 15 years, the number of Hispanics that work for the Arkansas company has increased significantly.

“I am proud to tell you that more than 40,000 of our workers are Latinos,” Tyson said of the company’s 114,000 employees. “We are learning, growing and benefiting from that diversity.”

Well, I guess that explains all the illegal aliens hired by Tyson Foods, huh?

Cut federal funding for sanctuary cities/states

20 08 2007

Cross posted from   Right Truth

Here’s the facts from Blogs for Bush and BlogoWogo:

That is what a recent Rasmussen Survey indicates:

Fifty-eight percent (58%) of voters nationwide favor cutting off federal funds for “sanctuary cities” that offer protection to illegal immigrants. A Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that just 29% are opposed. Republican Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney proposed such a plan earlier this week. By a 71% to 16% margin, voters also favor a proposal that would require all foreign visitors to carry a universal identification card as proposed by another GOP Presidential hopeful, Rudy Giuliani. Seventy-four percent (74%) also favor the creation and funding of a central database to track all foreign visitors in the United States.

By a 56% to 31% margin, voters want the government to continue building a fence along the Mexican border.

This is the Republican’s winning issue, if they want it

From Islamanazi

The U.S. Constitution does not have a provision for immigration sanctuary, and there is no legal precedent for it in the history of the United States of America.When U.S. cities and even entire states declare themselves to be “sanctuaries” for illegal aliens, they act outside the law, and by their actions could be charged with a felony for each violation of federal law by “concealing, harboring, or sheltering illegal aliens” (8 U.S. Code, sections 1324 and 1325; Immigration and Naturalization Act sections 274 and 275).

Illegal entry into the United States — entry without inspection — is a misdemeanor, INA section 275, (8 USC Section 1324). Repeated illegal entry is a felony. (read more)

Mitt Romney on Friday criticized cities that fail to crackdown on illegal immigrants:

“(Homeland Security) Secretary (Michael) Chertoff is going to say ‘You know what we’re going to do? We’re going to enforce the current law.’ Isn’t that novel? We’re going to enforce the current law. Isn’t that good news?” Romney said.

Elvira Arellano has finally been deported, one step toward enforcing laws already on the books:

Big Dog’s Weblog

Elvira Arellano had her kid here so he is a citizen under the misinterpreted 14th Amendment. The activist groups are all over this story and they are all indicating that this woman should not have been arrested for breaking the law and that it was not right for the government to separate her from her kid.The government did not separate them, she could have taken her kid with her but she is a poor example for motherhood and abandoned her kid.

Common Sense America makes this excellent observation:

If you think this is the end of the story – think again. What kind of mother would leave her child behind in a country that just deported her? Only one that plans on being back with him shortly.


Kim & Her Friends Explain It All

Activists in the Chicago area who have followed Arellano’s story weren’t surprised that the law caught up to her.


Border Pundit, “Border violence fueled by drug war in Mexico

So much death and destruction and sorrow. And still they keep coming, killing our kids and our cops and each other. Build the wall. Build it high and build it now. Start throwing employers in prison for hiring illegals. And make sure illegals cannot receive a single penny’s worth of public benefits. They need to go home and stay home…in their own country!

Illinois View and USAToday:

Sen. John McCain said Sunday that his support for immigration changes hurt his presidential candidacy because people were not convinced that it would secure the border.

Well well. I guess the message is finally getting through.

Crime from Mexico Flows Over Open Borders

20 08 2007

Cross posted from    The Virtuous Republic

Throughout history, empires have built walls to keep foreign influences out. Whether it is Hadrian’s Wall or the Great Wall of China, we know historically that manned fortifications like these can help defend the homeland for years. Walls are not the end all of border protection, but in the case of the United States, where the problem is illegal immigration, a secured border can help our nation determine who and what enters our country.

With that in mind, has a chilling article on the consequences of not monitoring our southern border. Drugs and the violence associated with it are spilling over our southern border. Yet, the Secretary of Homeland Security, from his recent comments, is less than enthusiastic about border control. The question boils down to sovereignty. Are we a nation that controls not only the heartland, but our frontiers? Right now, it seems we project our sovereignty better in Baghdad than along our own southwestern border.

The border crime issue became so urgent in Arizona that top officials met in Tucson in June with their counterparts from Sonora, Mexico. Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano agreed to help train Sonoran police to track wire payments to smugglers. Sonoran Gov. Eduardo Boors agreed to improve police communications with U.S. authorities.

In the first nine months of this year, Tucson officials surpassed their record from last year of 4,559 human smuggling arrests.

In tiny Douglas, Ariz., so far this year, the Mexican consulate has identified the bodies of five Mexican nationals who died under suspicious circumstances while crossing into the U.S., and he is awaiting identification of five more he presumes were Mexicans as well. There were only seven such deaths in all of last year.

Statewide the picture is equally bleak. Murders of illegal crossers is up 21 percent over last year.

Another visible effect of the cross-border crime wave is the flood of drugs into the country.

Anthony J. Coulson, assistant special agent in charge of the DEA in Arizona, said records indicate that cocaine and heroin seizures might end up twice as high as last year. Marijuana seizures are increasing 25 percent; nine months into the current fiscal year, he said, they had seized more pot than all of last year, “and 2006 was a record year, ” Coulson said.

In the Tucson sector alone there has been a 71 percent increase in marijuana seizures over the last year, with the U.S. Border Patrol reporting 648,000 pounds grabbed since October.

In tony Scottsdale, a Phoenix suburb, said Sheriff Arpaio, a cartel operative was openly selling heroin to high school kids. “He was getting 150 calls a day on his cell phone,” the sheriff said.

The DEA believes 80 percent of the methamphetamine in the United States is coming from labs in Mexico, which were set up after police raids shut down many of the labs in the U.S.

In Dallas, police are dealing with the deaths of 21 high school students in the last two years from “cheese heroin,” a mixture of Mexican heroin and over-the-counter cold medicine. The hits sell for $2 to $5. Several arrests of dealers have been made; now officials are bracing for the coming school season. Read the entire article….

Doctored photo of Sheriff Joe Arpaio

17 08 2007

Cross Posted from   Right Truth

Doctored Arpaio photo tied to immigrant rights activist (Hat tip Phillip Costa)

A Latino rights activist has been called to question for distributing by email a doctored photo of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio in Ku Klux Klan garb pulling a noose towards a man in a sombrero and serape.Elias Bermudez of Immigrants Without Borders said that in hindsight it was “poor taste” to forward the image late Tuesday to several dozen people, including members of the media.

Bermudez has recently been involved in a public war of words with Arpaio, whose deputies are enforcing immigration laws. “I hope he understands that someone is playing a bad joke,” Bermudez said. “But he also needs to know whoever put it together is expressing the feelings of the Hispanic community…We really fear Joe Arpaio.”

The sheriff said he was upset with the photo but not deterred. “There are certain factions that would like me to go away,” Arpaio said. “The more they go after me, the more I’m going to lock up the illegals.” (AZCentral)

Let me say here that photo-manipulations of public figures, friends, relatives, whoever — is fun and something we here at Right Truth encourage. However, to pass a photo-manipulation off as the real thing is a bit “no-no” no matter who you are. Distributing that photo as real is even worse. Reuters got caught doing this during the Israeli-Hezbollah Summer War last year.

Seattle becomes the first city in the United States to march in public
opposition and solidarity against the SPP and NAU


Seattle, WA United States of America
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Seattle becomes the first city in the United
States to march in public opposition and solidarity against the
Security & Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP.GOV) on
Saturday August 18th 2007, Seattle Center, 1pm. Protests are being
planned to coincide with the third SPP summit in Quebec, Canada where
President Bush,
Canadian Prime Minister Harper and Mexican President Calderon will be
meeting to further their open borders
and “North American” integration agendas. An extension of the North
American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) the SPP is a treasonous mechanism
by which the leaders of the three nations in collaboration with
un-elected, unaccountable global power elite “working groups” are
integrating policies and “harmonizing” regulations in areas of
defense, emergency management, economy, agriculture and healthcare on
an un-unprecedented level that is clearly intended for an eventual
merger into an “EU style” North American Union, all without any public
forum or congressional oversight. The SPP seeks to establish a
“North American Framework” double speak for “Building a North
American Community” a report sponsored by the Council on Foreign
Relations and written by American University professor and
self-appointed elitist Robert Pastor. Reference:
Aspects of a North American Union include a single currency
(Amero) and a North American Parliament that would super cede our
judicial branch of government and outright subvert American
sovereignty. Reference:

We demand the immediate restoration of the Republic by reinstatement
and adherence to the United States Constitution, by which our elected
officials are accountable to American citizens. We demand the
withdrawal of United States from the SPP, NAFTA and the United
Nations, the foreign world body ultimately behind the purposeful
concerted effort to destroy the sovereignty of United States of America
and it’s free citizens. We demand the restoration of our national
borders and re-commitment to the United States as a sovereign, free
nation. We the people, attendees of March for America! declare that
we will not be a part of a North American Union! March for America!
* March for America Washington is a grassroots non-partisan patriotic
effort consisting of pro-American organizations and citizens who come
together to stand up for their country via protest marches and events in
Washington State.

In a region of the nation where the political environment is seemingly
committed to national suicide, it’s critical to demonstrate public
opposition to those who undermine our sovereignty and promote the
effective dissolution of our nation.

Chertoff Still Doesn’t Get It on Immigration

On Wednesday, Homeland Security Director Chertoff, at the very same conference that the Director of National Intelligence said that China’s military buildup was mostly defensive and that China’s economy would grow larger than that of the U.S., had this to say on immigration:

U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said he hopes Congress will soon revisit immigration reform for economic reasons.

Chertoff told a border-security conference in El Paso, Texas, that his department was now faced with having to enforce immigration laws that not only pull resources away from dealing with security threats but also have a negative impact on agriculture and other economic sectors that have become dependent on illegal migrant labor.

“I’m still hopeful that it may be revisited,” he said of the immigration bill, which died in the Senate this year.

“In the long run, we all know that this problem has to be tackled comprehensively,” he said, by creating a channel for those who want to come to the country for work to do so legally.

Meanwhile, Homeland Security found itself facing “a need to pursue people coming here (illegally) to work, taking time away from (pursuing people) who are coming here to do us harm” like drug smugglers and terrorists.

Chertoff said he does not necessarily expect another vast comprehensive immigration package like the stalled reform bill. “It may take a couple of bites to digest,” he said.

But in the meantime his department and other federal agencies “had no choice” but to enforce existing laws, with consequences that will be “quite serious for some sectors” of the U.S. economy, like farming.

Where do you start? Obviously Chertoff was not humbled by the groundswell of opposition against the amnesty bill. Now instead of some grand compromise, he hopes that the amnesty strategy will be passed piecemeal, so as not to raise the dander of us silly and highly excitable natives.

Next, he says that by enforcing immigration laws, manpower is taken away from security issues. Can we just call that a steaming pile of buffalo chips? Since when did the border patrol deal with terrorists? Isn’t that the job of the FBI, the CIA, the NSA, and the military?

Then, he goes on to say that we (meaning those opposed to immigration) are forcing the DHS to “pursue” people coming to work here illegally versus “pursuing” those coming here to do us harm. Holy Mary! Apparently Secretary Chertoff is ignorant of the crimes committed by illegal immigrants. Here is a sample of crimes committed by those just coming here to work.

Additionally, he says his department “had no choice” but to enforce the law. Funny, you weren’t enforcing it until Americans stood up to Bush-Kennedy Amnesty Bill for Illegal Immigrants this summer. The gall of this man. He had no choice, because the restless natives were at the gate with pitchforks and torches, demanding that the law be enforced.

Finally, he keeps arguing that this crackdown on illegal immigration–or as we like to call it, the ‘enforcement of the law’–will hurt business. More horse manure. Business and farmers have been addicted to cheap labor and have broken American law for years and they have been abetted by a government that looked the other way at their criminal behavior–why yes, hiring illegal immigrants is a crime. Business will adapt. They will pay prevailing wages and guess what, American citizens will do the job or they will invest in labor saving technologies.

Someone in the White House needs to set Chertoff straight. Quit whining. Open borders and amnesty lost. You must enforce the law. We don’t care if you don’t like it. Do your job, enforce our immigration laws or resign.

Absurd to the Nth

Giuliani Tries to Sound More Like Hunter

Now, with the moistened finger pointed toward Heaven (the ACLU has not yet brought a lawsuit against me, forbidding this type of religious discrimination) and feeling the direction of gale force winds that indicate the fact that most Americans want to secure our borders, Rudy Giuliani wants to do just that. The man who said something along the lines of “If you came here and are undocumented and you want yo work hard,you are one of the people we want in this city,” is now getting tough on illegals!

The Drudge headline reads “I’ll stop the invasion” under a photo of The Republican party’s version of Hillary Clinton. Rudy is now planning on identifying everyone who crosses the border and will continue the building of The Hunter Fence. Does anyone else get the feeling we are listening to Hillary doing her best southern church voice here?

“The Hunter Fence” is called that because the legislation to build it was written by a man that has never waivered on the security of our nation. Duncan Hunter had a fence built in San Diego and the results were dramatic. If the American electorate can get past the notion that the media knows who should lead our nation, we can elect a leader we can believe in!

When I think about what I do know about Giuliani’s positions the image is fuzzy. I know he would probably be tough on terrorism, he really doesn’t care about the right to life of the most innocent among us, he has shown a disdain for gun ownership, and has demonstrated a soft stance on illegal immigration. Is it any wonder the media has annointed this guy as Hillary’s staunchest opponent?

Fellow citizens, I implore you to assert yourselves in the political process! Look at a man that has proven his dedication to our security and to our unborn. Please go to one of the below links and learn about Duncan Hunter and if you are inspired, please help with his campaign.
