When talking about immigration, Democrats like to conflate illegal and legal immigration, dropping the word “illegal” and spouting meaningless babble about no human being illegal. They like to preach  that illegal immigrants commit crimes at a lower rate than American citizens, a factoid that has been exposed as a lie.
The murder of legal immigrant and Newman Police Corporal Ronil Singh on Christmas night by an illegal alien in the sanctuary state of California shows not only that the claims by Chuck Schumer and the “bride of Chucky” Nancy Pelosi that the Democrats support border security is a deadly and bald-faced lie. It highlights the difference between legal and illegal immigrants, between those who love America and want to be Americans and those who murder them.
Pelosi and Schumer like to talk about the “Dreamers.” Well, Ronil Singh had dreams, too:
Ronil Singh came to the U.S. from his native Fiji to fulfill a lifelong dream of becoming an officer, joining a small-town police force in California and working to improve his English. The day after Christmas, he stopped another immigrant, this one in the country illegally, who shot and killed the corporal, authorities said Thursday…
"This suspect is in our country illegally. He doesn't belong here. He is a criminal," Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson, whose agency is leading the investigation, told reporters.
Newman Police Chief Randy Richardson fought back tears as he described Singh, a 33-year-old with a newborn son, as an "American patriot."
"He came to America with one purpose, and that was to serve this country," Richardson said…
"He was living the American dream," said Stanislaus County Sheriff's Deputy Royjinder Singh, who is not related to the slain officer but knew him. "He loved camping, loved hunting, loved fishing, loved his family."
And now he is dead. The blood of Kate Steinle, Mollie Tibbetts, and now Ronil Singh and others is on the hands of open border advocates and the sanctuary city loons who provide no sanctuary for the American citizen victims of illegal alien criminals.
Even if it were true that illegal aliens commit crimes, including murder, at rates lower than American citizens, that would be irrelevant. The murder rate for illegal aliens should be zero because none of them should be here and the indisputable fact is that Jamiel Shaw Jr., Kate Steinle, and Mollie Tibbetts would be alive today if the illegal aliens who slew them were still staring at the other side of a border wall liberals refuse to build.
Pelosi has said that a border wall would be “immoral, ineffective, and expensive” when it has been documented when it has been demonstrated that none of that is true. The fact is that walls are so effective they have been built in scores of countries around the world and in the U.S. places like San Diego and Yuma have demonstrated their effectiveness as Pelosi and Schumer worry more about Syria’s borders than our own:
According to Quebec University expert Elisabeth Vallet. there are65 completed or under construction border walls in the world today.
One-third of the world’s nations have border walls or barriers with their neighbors.
Pelosi believes this is immoral.
Tell that to Israel, Hungary, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, India, Pakistan, Spain, Greece, Cyprus, Ireland, etc.
And Nancy Pelosi has a wall around the backyard at her home in San Francisco.
What is immoral is a policy endorsed by Pelosi and Schumer of sanctuary cities and even states that allows such criminal aliens in our country to murder Americans and a Democratic caucus that would abolish I.C.E. and those who risk their lives daily to provide some semblance of border security.  What is immoral is politicians such  as Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf  not only refusing to cooperate with I.C.E. butgiving illegal aliens a heads-up when I.C.E. raids are imminent.
In the wake of the Singh murder, Schaaf still insists that warning illegal aliens about I.C.E. raids was and is the right thing to do, the lives of American citizens she is sworn to protect be damned:
Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf -- who once warned Northern California residents about an impending ICE raid -- said she has “no regrets” for her actions and said the federal immigration agency “has gone astray.”
“I have no regrets, none. The more time goes by, the more certain I feel that I did the right thing in standing up for our community and pointing out our values are not aligned with our laws,” Schaff toldBuzzFeed in an interview. “That’s hopefully the message that is sent out.”
The message Schaaf, Pelosi, and Schumer are sending out is one of callous disregard for the lives of American citizens. Democrats are endangering their lives and the lives of migrant children by enticing caravans to drag young children a thousand miles with lies about easy entry and waiting jobs:
The father of an 8-year-old Guatemalan boy who died in U.S. custody took his son to the border after hearing rumors that parents and their children would be allowed to migrate to the United States and escape the poverty in their homeland, the boy's stepsister told the Associated Press.
Felipe Gomez Alonzo died Monday at a New Mexico hospital after suffering coughing, vomiting and fever, authorities said. It was the second such death this month. Another Guatemalan child, 7-year-old Jakelin Caal, died in U.S. custody on Dec. 8.
The fact is that if we had a wall, or whatever the hair-splitters want to call it, both these children would be alive today. And it is American kids are dying too, killed and murdered by illegal aliens who have no right to be here. Just ask the parents of Justin Lee, 14, who was killed in a hit-and-run accident by an illegal alien:
An illegal immigrant has pleaded guilty to a hit and run that killed a Wixom teen in June.
Miguel Ibarra-Cerda, 22, entered his plea Thursday, the day his trial was set to begin before Judge Cheryl Matthews in Oakland County Circuit Court.
Ibarra-Cerda is charged with failing to stop at the scene of an accident when at fault, resulting in death, and reckless driving causing death for the collision which killed Justin Lee, 14. Ibarra-Cerda faces up to 15 years in prison and a $10,000 fine for the first charge and 15 years in prison and a $2,500-$10,000 fine on the second charge. Matthews will sentence him Dec. 20.
Police in Connecticut have arrested an 18-year-old undocumented immigrant from Jamaica on murder charges related to the shooting death of an innocent 12-year-old boy a week before Christmas.
Bridgeport Police Chief Armando Perez on Monday announced the charges against Tajay Chambers stemming from the December 18 death of Clinton Howell outside his family's home on Willow Street.
Chambers has been charged with murder; murder with special circumstances; use of a firearm during the commission of a felony; illegal possession of a firearm without a permit; risk of injury to a child; reckless endangerment, and larceny…. reported, citing police sources, that earlier that evening, Chambers and his alleged co-conspirators were driving in a stolen car when they got into an argument with some people walking along Willow Street, among them Howell’s relative.
There have been many suggestions as to how to pay for the wall, such as Sen. Ted Cruz’s idea to apply drug asset forfeitures to wall construction or to tax the billions of dollars aliens return to their home countries.. Pelosi certainly found no problem locating $3 billion for the ineffective and absurd “Cash for Clunkers” program under Obama, didn’t she?
The wall would in fact pay for itself, if only in the reduced cost of crimes that would be eliminated, saving both dollars from overburdened social services and the cost of illegal alien crimes, particularly the cost in human lives such as that of Ronil Singh, who is survived by his wife and young son.
His death, the death of a legal immigrant pursuing the American dream, and countless other American citizens, including children, is on the hands of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. Perhaps Pelosi can attend Singh’s funeral and explain how his death and the deaths of others in the absence of a wall is all President Trump’s fault and that not building the wall is the moral thing to do.

The Schumer & Pelosi show

Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, the twin nutters of Congress, were certain they could beat Trump at his own game, but have made fools of themselves, as usual.  The stand-off is not over but with each passing day, the Democrats reveal more of their anti-American, pro-illegal immigration agenda.  Conservatives have been sounding the alarm for years: Democrats do not care about American citizens!  
We are an annoying inconvenience, especially those of us who do not buy what they are selling.  We vote against them, which makes them angry.  They lash out at us, call us names, impugn our intelligence with fervor.  All of the late-night comics, the Bill Mahers of the comedy branch of the entertainment industry, are especially venal.  Jimmy Kimmel has decried those who have contributed to the GoFundMe page to fund the border wall as meth addicts.  It was begun by a Vet, Brad Kolfage, who lost three limbs and it's raised nearly $15m.  
It appears that Democratic members of Congress are as snowflakey as millennials on our university campuses. They assume that anyone who opposes their ridiculous socialist, genderless, climate-alarmist, virtue-signaling directives is a Neanderthal, unfit to have an opinion.  It is then thoroughly acceptable to malign such people, those of us who oppose every aspect of their anti-America-as-founded agenda, in any and every  disgusting manner they can devise. 
The left is all about identity politics.  They assign all of us to a group -- racial, class, and/or all of their fabricated gender categories.  The right is all about individuals, their character, their talent, their contributions to society.  We do not care about skin color, economic class or sexual orientation.  We do care about good vs. evil, right vs. wrong.  This makes us quite villainous in the eyes of the left for whom everything is relative. For example, we do not think poverty causes crime, unlearned values of Western Civilization do.  Try to steal an election? It is moral if it takes out an opponent.  We are, it appears, the left vs. the right, very different on a neurological level. 
Schumer and Pelosi have armed guards whenever they are amongst the public.  But they are both fervent in their quest to deny us the right to bear arms and to prevent a wall on the southern border to protect us from the flood of lethal drugs that flow into the US.  They are impervious to the crimes of the barbaric gangs like MS13, no matter how many innocent Americans they kill.  They do not give a thought to the many illegals from terrorist nations that also seek to enter the country on a daily basis.  Schumer, Pelosi and their willing subjects in Congress ignore completely the horrific hazards that cross the border every day.  They want cheap labor, no matter how many Americans are left jobless, and they want, more than anything, a dependent underclass whom they mean to give the right to vote.  They already vote anyway, thanks to the Left's rejection of Common-sense voter ID.
If there were a television program based on Schumer and Pelosi, it would have to be a comedy; the two of them are so inept, so childish. They would be  Dumb and Dumber redux.  Each of them seems to believe they run the country and can dictate to the president how he will govern. They demand that Trump abandon the wall.  They have no intention of compromising; they only want to deny Trump and his supporters what they want -- border security that works.  So enraged, so benighted, by Trump's presidency, they would rather see us overrun by migrants from third-world nations, like those who have destroyed the UK, Germany, Sweden, and the rest of Europe, than protect America as a sovereign nation.
The "government shutdown" is just a ploy, many times overused by now, relatively meaningless to the lives of most Americans. The Schumer & Pelosi show will do everything they can to hype it as a disaster, but we all know it is nothing of the kind.  Trump must hold out for funding of the wall.  
While there have been some bad actors in our government in the past, Schumer and Pelosi are the worst of the worst.  They are equally arrogant, each thoroughly ignorant of reality beyond the bubble of wealth and privilege they inhabit.  They both believe themselves to be smarter than the rest of us, when in fact they are both really dim bulbs, long past their sell-by date.  Yes, Pelosi is good at raising money; how and why is a mystery.  That each of them is repeatedly re-elected does not say much for their constituents' familiarity with the Constitution, the law, American history or the facts in their own communities.  
San Francisco, Pelosi's district is now a hell-hole but for her walled compound.  New York too, like California, is a state that residents are fleeing as fast as they can.  Both states have been destroyed by moonbatty leftists; high taxes, dumbing down of education for political purposes, and the sacrifice of common sense to global warming alarmists.  Schumer and Pelosi have for years been on board with every silly attempt to restructure, to transform, American society.  They both jumped on the Obama bandwagon the moment he was elected.  Along with Obama, they are responsible for incalculable damage done to this country over the eight years of that administration.  While their constant appearances on television are so often humorous (Pelosi's silly, practiced hand gestures and Schumer's relentless badgering of Trump),  they are not one bit funny.  They are just loathsome.

40% of all Federal Border Crimes are by invading Mexicans!


“Part of the problem, Santorum said, has been the arrival of millions of unskilled immigrants — legal and illegal — in the United States. "American workers deserve a shot at [good] jobs," Santorum said. "Over the last 20 years, we have brought into this country, legally and illegally, 35 MILLION mostly unskilled workers. And the result, over that same period of time, workers' wages and family incomes have flatlined." SEN. RICK SANTORUM


De Léon, who introduced the bill, made his remarks at a hearing in Sacramento on SB54, the bill to make California a “Sanctuary State.

California State Senate President Pro Tem Kevin De Léon (D-Los Angeles) said last Tuesday that “half his family” was in the country illegally, using false documents, and eligible for deportation under President Trump’s new executive order against “sanctuary” jurisdictions.

“The Obama Administration seems to be heeding to Mexico’s request by openly halting the deportation of hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants. Additionally, the administration has a “backdoor amnesty” plan to legalize millions of undocumented aliens in case Congress doesn’t pass legislation to do it.” JUDICIAL WATCH

Heather Mac Donald of the Manhattan Institute has testified before a Congressional committee that in 2004, 95% of all outstanding warrants for murder in Los Angeles were for illegal aliens; in 2000, 23% of all Los Angeles County jail inmates were illegal aliens and that in 1995, 60% of Los Angeles’s largest street gang, the 18th Street gang, were illegal aliens.

Caught Again: Dangerous Gang Member 

Deported 10 Times Since 1993 Arrested in 


The United States Customs and Border Protection agency arrested a dangerous illegal alien and member of the notorious "18th Street Gang" in Arizona on Tuesday evening, according to a press release
Arizona CBP reports that "51-year-old Hector Gustavo Montoya, a member of the dangerous 18th Street gang in Los Angeles," was apprehended this week near Nogales while agents were patrolling the border. Montoya has been arrested by American authorities on numerous occasions, "most recently in 2016 when he was convicted for drug smuggling offenses. He served a 24-month prison sentence for that conviction and was removed from the country after confinement."
Montoya has an illustrious history with repeated illegal entry into the country. In what some politicians may describe as "an act of love," the 18th street gang member has been deported from America "more than 10 times for immigration violations dating back to 1993, as well as multiple arrests for crimes committed in California." Montoya hails from Honduras and will be held in custody by federal authorities. 
CBP has previously dealt with 18th Street gang members who use America's porous southern border as a means of gaining access into the country. During July 2018, CBP arrested a thug from this group who entered into the country separately while posing as a migrant seeking refuge with his child.  That same week of that arrest, agents also caught a Salvadoran national crossing the border who also belonged to the gang. 

Montoya's arrest comes as President Donald J. Trump and other Republicans continue to demand funding for a border wall to impede the flow of violent illegal aliens.
Steinle’s murderer, Jose Zarate and been deported 5xs!
"While walking with her father on a pier in San Francisco in 2015, Steinle was shot by the illegal alien. Steinle pleaded with her father to not let her die, but she soon passed in her father’s arms."









“It’s almost impossible to get convicted in this city,” said [Sgt. Kevin] Healy, who works in the Police Department’s narcotics division. “The message needs to be sent that it’s not OK to be selling drugs. It’s not allowed anywhere else. Where else can you walk up to someone you don’t know and purchase crack and heroin? Is there such a place?”…

Police say drug dealers from the East Bay ride BART into San Francisco every day to prey on the addicts slumped on our sidewalks, and yet the city that claims to so desperately want to help those addicts often looks the other way.


Steinle’s murderer, Jose Zarate and been deported 5xs!
"While walking with her father on a pier in San Francisco in 2015, Steinle was shot by the illegal alien. Steinle pleaded with her father to not let her die, but she soon passed in her father’s arms."


According to the Federation for American Immigration Reform’s 2017 report, illegal immigrants, and their children, cost American taxpayers a net $116 billion annually -- roughly $7,000 per alien annually. While high, this number is not an outlier: a recent study by the Heritage Foundation found that low-skilled immigrants (including those here illegally) cost Americans trillions over the course of their lifetimes, and a study from the National Economics Editorial found that illegal immigration costs America over $140 billion annually. As it stands, illegal immigrants are a massive burden on American taxpayers.

Thanks, Schumer! Get ready for a newer and bigger Central American migrant caravan

Despite the current caravan migrant privations in Tijuana, most notably the business of having to wait one's turn to file for asylum for free at the border, obviously, there has been enough in it for the caravan migrants to entice formation of a new caravan, this one bigger and probably better organized than the last one.
Here's the news:
Another migrant caravan – with estimates of as many as 15,000 participants – is preparing to leave Honduras on January 15, according to migrant rights advocates and Spanish-language media.
"They say they are even bigger and stronger than the last caravan," said Irma Garrido, a member of the migrant advocacy group Reactiva Tijuana Foundation.
There's also this:
Using social media sites such as WhatsApp and Facebook, people are spreading the word about another, bigger caravan planning to leave Honduras on Jan. 15, larger than the October caravan that stalled out in Tijuana in the hopes of reaching the U.S.
Karen Valladares, who works at the Foro Nacional para las Migraciones en Honduras (the National Forum for Migration in Honduras), said the caravan forming in Honduras has even more support and interest than the caravan that recently arrived in Tijuana because people saw how traveling together improves chances of survival and safety.
Word is getting out that all you have to do is come here, and either await your zero-cost asylum application as the Mexicans house, feed, and medically treat you or else cross over illegally, sometimes with the aid of a Democratic congressperson, for instant customer service, turning yourself in to the Border Patrol, and then soon become free to walk around the country.  No need to worry about that criminal record or those diseases you may be spreading to citizens; U.S. law says that what you want is paramount and your interests come above the interests of the citizens.  And if you manage to insult your Mexican hosts and make them angry, heckyou're in the States, dining in a chic Dallas restaurant, ahead of the others, scot-free.
Apparently, that's what's gotten out in places such as Honduras, and that's why it's been so easy to form a newer, bigger caravan.
Let's thank the person most responsible for this: New York's Senate minority leader, Charles Schumer, who is willing to countenance a government shutdown over a piddly $5 billion for a border wall.  That battle is likely a factor in the current caravan formation: the U.S. government is shut down over the building of a border wall, and it doesn't particularly look as though any funds for it are going to ensure that it gets built, what with Schumer blocking the matter in the Senate.  No wall, easier entry.  Or maybe there will be a wall, in which case, you want to slip through as quickly as possible, before the slats go up.  Either way, word it out that the time to roll in is now.
Once in, illegal aliens and asylum-seekers can avail themselves of legal U.S. jobs at U.S. wages as they wait for their cases to be decided by a judge some three years out, and then avail themselves of vast taxpayer-paid benefit packages, particularly if their asylum requests are approved.  That's tens of thousands in free money for housing, food, medical care, and pretty much everything else.
The entitlement sense is quite amazing.  The migrant organizers are claiming that the group will go only as far as southern Mexico, to take advantage of pro-offered jobs there, but they've issued conditions for that – that Mexico really does deliver those jobs.  That's a big if, because who knows if these unvetted people are even employable?
This new caravan plans to stop in Chiapas, a southern state in Mexico, if work is guaranteed there, she said.
Mexico's President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has pledged visas and work in Mexico for Central American migrants.  In his inauguration speech, he pledged public works projects like planting two million trees and construction of his Maya Train, a 1,500-kilometer railroad.
The $8 billion project is expected to create hundreds of thousands of jobs in southern states of Mexico.
Otherwise, it's off to the States, where the prospect of assimilating into the underclass and living for free is, for quite a few, more attractive.  It's likely that's the real plan, but the organizers don't want Tijuana's officials to know that, given Tijuana's disgust with migrant criminality and anger over the shutdown of the U.S. border, which imposes a tremendous cost onto Tijuana's law-abiding people.
But the caravan is coming, and that's because the incentives for it are there.  Apparently, enough cases are being approved at U.S. border stops to entice more phony asylum-seeking and, for those who don't want to wait in line, illegal entry with catch and release.  That's why, so we now see the new caravan forming.  What's more, President Trump's threat to cut off aid to Central America is kind of hollow, given that he made that earlier if the caravan wasn't stopped, and everyone can see that actually, Central America got promised more aid.  A president can go to that well only once.
Somehow, there's reason to doubt that the caravan is really going to be content staying in southern Mexico, given the high hopes the organizers have used to whip up enthusiasm for the free stuff.
Once again, Americans have just one line of defense: the angry Mexican people, who don't want thousands of military-aged young men without jobs or education foisted upon them.  This time, it's the Chiapas people who are protesting:
On Facebook, reaction in Chiapas to news of a second caravan was not all favorable.
"Well, now the government does something.  That work is for Mexicans that need it," said Anna Pérez from Palenque, Chiapas, Mexico on Facebook.  "Opportunistic people who just want to take advantage of the Mexicans."
Obviously, the Tijuana people were to a certain extent ignored, and it's just as likely that the Chiapas people could be as well.  But Mexico City doesn't like this kind of unrest spreading to multiple cities, and that may be a cue for them to stop this.  For now, all that's to be done is to wait and see.  What we see here is incentive upon incentive out there to migrate illegally, with no end in least until these countries empty out.  Stand up and take a bow, Chuckie Schumer.

Immigration: America as an 'attractive nuisance'

As a kid, I watched over the backyard fence enviously as heavy equipment began digging where the next-door neighbor's back lawn had once been.  They were putting in a swimming pool – a pool, of course, being the ultimate status symbol of our Los Angeles suburban neighborhood.
And what a swimming pool it was.  A stone waterfall, a hand-laid brick deck, lush greenery – my brother and I couldn't wait for an invitation to dive on in.  Many hot L.A. summers were spent in that pool, owing to the benevolence of neighborly neighbors.
...until a front-page L.A. Times article was printed, that was.  Turns out a homeowner was successfully sued by the parents of a child who had drowned in his backyard pool.  The child did not have permission to enter the property or the pool.  The "attractive nuisance" doctrine was the tort.  This was my first exposure to absurdity in law.  You could be punished if you simply had nice things that other people wanted.
Sure enough, more trucks came to the neighbors' house.  They began drilling and welding and putting up a black wrought iron monstrosity of a fence around that gorgeous pool, complete with a locked gate.
"Attractive nuisance."
I watch the news blame Trump and our border policy for the two immigrant children who have died while in custody.  I think to myself that Trump is the only person who is trying to unwind the executive orders and misinterpretation of our immigration laws that deal with children at the border.
A. Obama's "unaccompanied minors" immigration loophole.
B. The Democrats and the media twisting themselves into conniptions over "separating families" while in detention, regardless of the fact that this incentivizes immigrants to proffer children forward at the border – even if unrelated – due to the special consideration offered them under interpretations of current asylum law.
Obama, the Democrats, and even John Roberts are all complicit in making America an "attractive nuisance," and blame for these children's deaths ought to be ascribed accordingly.
My childhood neighbor found out that the cure for an "attractive nuisance" is a fence.
Just as Donald Trump has been saying all along.

Chuck Schumer speaks with forked tongue 

on illegal immigration

As the government shutdown goes on over the Senate's failure to fund a border wall (and a new caravan is forming to enter illegally because of it), the man most responsible for the political gridlock, New York Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer, has dug in his heels and insisted there will never be a border wall.  On principle, and as a "moral issue," and all that.  Away he piously intones.
There's just one problem.  He doesn't believe any of it.  Journalist Ryan Saavedra has found him saying the exact opposite in a windy speech less than a decade ago, showing how phony his current argument is.  Get a load of him then:

Chuck Schumer in 2009:

-Americans don't like illegal immigration
-"Illegal immigration is wrong"
-People illegally in the U.S. are "illegal aliens," not "undocumented"
-Border fence made the southern border "far more secure...created a significant barrier to illegal immigration"

17.9K people are talking about this

This would be the same Chuckie Schumer who was caught exploiting the interns for free labor, not long after he piously intoned about the "moral issue" of the $12 or $15 hourly minimum wage.
Hypocrisy, it seems, is a way of life for the creepy Senate minority leader.
Here's what he said in 2009, via Daily Wire:
"The first of these seven principles is that illegal immigration is wrong, plain and simple," Schumer said.  "When we use phrases like 'undocumented workers,' we convey a message to the American people that their government is not serious about combating illegal immigration, which the American people overwhelmingly oppose."
"People who enter the United States without our permission are illegal aliens, and illegal aliens should not be treated the same as people who entered the United States legally," Schumer continued.  "Any immigration solution must recognize that we must do as much as we can to gain operational control of our borders as soon as possible."
Here's what he's saying now about the wall and shutdown, from a recent CNN report:
The bottom line is simple.  The President made clear that he wants a shutdown.  His position, if he sticks to his position for a $5 billion wall, he will get no wall and he will get a shutdown.  The bottom line is very, very simple.  That is, we want border security.  We offered him border security.  But Americans know that the wall, not paid for by Mexico anymore, is not the way to border security.
Really?  A wall is "not the way to border security," yet before, he plainly said walls work?  He's got quite a pattern on the hypocrisy front, and he ought to be asked about it, if not from the incurious press, then by another pol, with the cameras around.

Obama's 'Hispanicazation' of America

By  Monday, 10 January 2011 08:28 AM

Siting a shadow on economic recovery efforts in the United States is the cost of illegal immigration that consumes U.S. taxpayer dollars for education, healthcare, social welfare benefits, and criminal justice. Illegal aliens (or more politically correct, “undocumented immigrants”) with ties to Mexican drug cartels are contributing to death and destruction on U.S. lands along the southern border. 

While the declining job market in the United States may be discouraging some would-be border crossers, a flow of illegal aliens continues unabated, with many entering the United States as drug-smuggling “mules.”

Increasingly vicious foot soldiers of the Mexican drug cartels are taking control of U.S. lands along the border, especially since U.S. Border Patrol units have been reassigned, some to offices 60 to 80 miles inland.

The U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management (BLM) early last year posted signs warning citizens to avoid Interstate 8 between Casa Grande and Gila Bend, Ariz., because of criminal activity in the area, an area that includes protected natural areas precious to the nation. 

In reaction to public outrage over the signs, the BLM removed the offensive wording in October 2010, replacing it with the following: Visitor Information Update—Active Federal Law Enforcement Patrol Area. 

As the liberal news media, far-left Democrats, and labor unions push for the “Hispanicazation” of U.S. culture, U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says the U.S. border has never been more secure. 

Perhaps she is basing this on the reduced number of apprehensions, which result, of course, from reassigning Border Patrol agents inland.

In a recent New York Times article, Nicholas Kristof criticized U.S. citizens for not speaking a foreign language and suggested that “Every child in the United States should learn Spanish.” He concluded that as the United States increasingly integrates economically with Latin America, Spanish will be crucial for the United States.

For decades, the liberal left has argued that Latin America is essential for U.S. business and trade. Kristof states that Latin America “is finally getting its act together” but fails to mention the Obama administration’s $2 billion loan of U.S. taxpayer money in 2009 to Brazil’s Petrobras oil company for deep off-shore oil drilling. Obama confidant George Soros, through the Soros Fund Management LLC, until recently owned millions of dollars of Petrobras stock.

Kristof suggests that one day Spanish-speaking Americans will be part of daily life in the United States and that workmen such as mechanics will be able to communicate easily with Spanish-speaking customers. 

He fails to explain why these customers will not be speaking English. After all, the ability to speak, read, and write English remains a requirement for U.S. citizenship.

President Barack Obama gives lip service to increasing border control resources with limited funding and personnel. Many officials, including the governors of Texas and Arizona, are skeptical regarding the Obama administration’s resolve. They resent that the United States is being blamed for the killing fields on both sides of the Mexico-U.S. Border.

For instance, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in March 2009, during her first official visit to Mexico, placed the blame for the Mexican drug cartels’ vicious murders on the United States. 

In Mexico City, she announced that the U.S. appetite for illegal drugs and the easy acquisition of guns from the United States by Mexicans are the root causes of the Mexican crime wave. “Blame America” has become the global agenda of the Democratic Party. 

The Obama administration’s plan to resolve the immigration chaos is to offer amnesty to all comers. President Obama re-affirms his support of a “pathway to citizenship” (amnesty) for illegal aliens in 2011. 

The administration, however, has announced no plans to control the influx of future waves of illegal aliens or their skyrocketing costs to the nation. The administration, which condones U.S. sanctuary cities and states, has no plans to file charges against them for violations of federal immigration law. Nor does the administration seem concerned about the environmental impact that illegal aliens have on the ecology of the United States. 

Many national forests, parks, monuments, wilderness areas, and wildlife refuges — once the pride of the nation — are serving today as marijuana fields for illegal alien gangs. 

Former Democratic Speaker of the House 

Nancy Pelosi reportedly said to a 

gathering of illegal aliens in California in 

2009 that U.S. immigration laws were 

“un-American,” suggesting that they need 

not be obeyed. Concerned citizens can only trust that the new speaker of the House, John Boehner, as part of congressional oversight of federal agencies, will demand enforcement of existing immigration laws.

When will President Obama recognize that illegal immigration is slowing economic recovery? Can he resolve the chaos while still appeasing his Hispanic base? 

To maintain his populist aura, the president is in the habit of saying one thing to one audience and the opposite to another. 

One Obama apologist explained, “Campaign rhetoric is one thing,” suggesting that governing is another. The deliberate Hispanicazation of the United States to secure a block of votes is quite another.
