"Illegal Aliens" and Open Borders

Illegal Aliens and Open Borders

“U.S. Border Patrol agents have been ordered not to arrest illegal aliens along the section of the Arizona border where protesters patrolled last month because an increase in apprehensions there would prove the effectiveness of Minuteman volunteers, The Washington Times has learned.”

This order had to come from Washington, and I am anxious to learn exactly from whom!

I got a news flash for the powers that be ... forfeiting our security for the sake of "the Hispanic vote" by turning the blind eye to illegal immigration, (yes ... as in "illegal aliens" not some other stupid politically correct term), will not get them their desired results.

As a member of a band that has several American CITIZENS that are of Hispanic heritage (all born here legally) they or any others I have talked to support illegal immigration, or anyone who would allow it. They do not like the amnesty afforded in the 80’s, nor the idea of another amnesty plan. They all realize the damage to this country this would result in.

If we do not get a handle on this problem we face at least 2 serious consequences.

1. Someone will slip across the border with a suitcase nuke. Wonder if border security will become an issue to be dealt with then?

2. The influx of millions more illegal aliens scamming the system (medical, schools, social, and welfare systems) will bankrupt this country.

It is called “illegal immigration” because they are breaking a law, a law a lot more important to the country than a person speeding, or something. Go ahead and get a ticket and not pay it and see if you are afforded the same rights the lawbreakers slipping across the border are given. But I understand … enforcing the border law costs money, and enforcing traffic laws MAKES money.

It’s time for Washington to pull their collective heads out of their rears. Border security now!
