Illegals are OK!!! (Like Hell!)

From a reader:

Right now there is a labor shortage in the fields in California. Picking fruit is hard rough outdoor work. A lot of the undocumented labor lives communally, without electricity or TV amenitities etc. I doubt you could get the number of laborers needed, if you doubled the $9-$10 an hour pay. If you did you would either have to increase the price of the fruit or make less money. You can call growers greedy but if they can't make a profit or can sell their land to developers for more they will. Grocers import more fruits and vegetables all the time from other countries like, of all places Mexico, because it is already cheaper and folks like you seem to believe that there are lots of citizens willing to do hard manual labor for just a little bit better pay than illegals. There aren't. You are living in a fool's paradise. Most likely the roof over your head was built by an illegal. Almost assuredly what you'll eat at dinnertime was packed or picked by an illegal. US citizens have better choices for better pay. Who is going to do this work? You? Maybe if we get into a deep enough recession. Let's hope smarter heads than your group gets the McCain-Kennedy bill passed so we can help our economy.

"If you are too good for the work do we keep the law and export the job or change the law and import the worker?'

My reply:

Illegal immigrants are breaking the law, which makes them criminals by strict aniond even loose defenition. They can come in legally, but choose not to...why? Most of us who are five or six generation Americans had great greats who came to america, too, but they managed to come legally. Why can't Mexicans?

I have also stressed in my immigration articles that to pretend times haven't changed is insane. There are too many coming in now only to abuse the system and tax payer money. On top of that, there are too many coming in whose goal isn't self-improvement but national destruction. We are at war, sir, and until America is safe, we have every right to treat illegals like the criminals they are and to limit immigration to what we can afford and those we can trust. We accomplish nothing if we are brought down, and neither do the illegals, or any immigrant for that matter.

I can't begin to count the numbers of times my dad would come home talking about some Mexicans from his job that he wished we could help. The answer is NOT for Americans to be the world's tit, but for the world to overthrow wicked governments. Mexico's government is evil...why don't Mexicans overthrow them? When it is so damned easy to come here, you have no incentive to make your own land better. Mexico is your country...why don't you fight for it? It belongs to you, not Fox...you need to take it back! The answer is to take back your own land, not turn ours into another Mexico. Until you are willing to fight for yourselves on your own soil, don't talk to me about what we should be doing for those who break our laws. You haven't earned with blood what we have, and I have no respect for those who aren't willing to fight for what they believe or even their own land. Until you show you are willing to fight for what is yours, you have no right to tell me not to fight for what is mine.

And all the while the ACLU is battling Americans such as the Minutemen and others for simply trying to control the problem. Since those crossing the border aren't Americans, how can the American Civil Liberties Union be involved... where's the "Mexican Civil Liberties Unions? Oh, I forget, the don't have one.

Focus on the words; ILLEGAL as in against the law. If I an American Citizen Native Texan swam the river(Redneck Wetback) with no papers would I get a free ride home? Hell No it would take a lot of money and some damn good lawers to avoid prison time. WE need to close our borders now.

Gangs Pose Border Threat

07:01 AM CST on Sunday, November 27, 2005
By DAVID McLEMORE / The Dallas Morning News



DEL RIO, Texas – Val Verde County Sheriff D'Wayne Jernigan has dealt with smugglers and drug gangs for decades, both as sheriff and as a customs agent.


LAYNE SMITH / STAFF ARTIST But in the last year, the risks of drug-fueled terrorism have raised the stakes to scary levels. Rifles and handguns have been replaced by rocket-propelled grenades, or RPGs, and high-caliber machine guns.

"Now the bad guys have more sophisticated training and better equipment," Sheriff Jernigan said. "They're better armed and willing to shoot."

This month, Border Patrol officials reported that assaults against agents all along the border nearly doubled from the previous year.

As President Bush prepares to tour the U.S.-Mexico border this week, law enforcement officials in counties up and down Texas' 1,200-mile border with Mexico are coping with issues of national security, increased illegal immigration, and a growing fear that the drug cartels are moving upriver and just across the border from here.

Val Verde County, a stony outcrop of sheep and goat ranches and sharply etched limestone canyons, rests along the Rio Grande 150 miles west of San Antonio.

It's biggest city, Del Rio, and its Mexican neighbor, Ciudad Acuña, have missed the explosion of drug violence that has enmeshed Laredo and Nuevo Laredo 180 miles downriver.

But law enforcement officials know it's coming. They've seen the signs.

"We're in a time of transition," said Chief Deputy Terry Simons.

"Our concerns are just how strongly the cartels' sphere of influence will extend through this county."

Federal investigators have blamed the increasing level of violence along the border on the bloody turf battle between three violent cartels, a battle leaving 158 dead and accounting for more than 40 kidnappings in Nuevo Laredo alone.

The FBI has told Congress that the continuing violence centered in that city stems from the battle between rival smuggling organizations: the Matamoros-based Gulf cartel, remnants of the Juárez cartel and Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán's Federation, a splinter group of the Juárez organization.

"We've gathered intelligence that indicates the Zetas, the Gulf cartel's enforcers, are making an appearance in Ciudad Acuña," Chief Deputy Simons said. There's also an indication of a presence of MS-13, a Colombian-born drug gang with tentacles in the United States that provides muscle for the Guzmán cartel.

"To make matters worse, a few months ago we picked up information that a new order went out from the Zetas that no more drug loads would be lost," he said. "It used to be that losing a load now and then was a cost of doing business. Now the Zetas are telling their people they can't give up a load. They're to fight the cops. ...

"We're caught in the middle until somebody wins," Chief Deputy Simons said. "It's not just drug smuggling anymore. You have to think of it as narco-terrorism."


Gangs have ties in U.S.

In a Nov. 17 congressional hearing on border security, Chris Swecker, FBI assistant director for criminal investigations, testified that each of the competing cartels has cemented ties to U.S. street and prison gangs, including the Texas Mexican Mafia, the Texas Syndicate and Los Hermanos de Pistoleros Latinos, or The Brotherhood of Latin Gunmen.

For the border sheriffs, it is, at best, an uneven battle.

Sheriff Jernigan has 13 deputies to patrol a county of 3,100 square miles – roughly three-fourths the size of New Jersey. Most of the county's 45,000 residents live in Del Rio. The rest are scattered across isolated ranches and small communities, connected to state highways via gravel ranch roads or private twisting dirt roads. The deputies also patrol roughly 90 miles of river frontage, including thick stands of carrizo (cane) and limestone cliffs.

Val Verde County provides each deputy with a military-style automatic rifle and a vehicle. Deputies supply their own side arm. Each vehicle – usually a heavy-duty four-wheel drive truck – is equipped with water, food, extra fuel, tow straps, a GPS device, a change of clothes and extra ammunition, much of it paid for out of the deputies' pockets.

In the rocky, isolated terrain, radios frequently don't work and cellphone coverage fades not far from the city limits.

"When you're out there, driving ... to some call about a man with a gun, you're by yourself," Deputy Joe Faz said. "The other deputy on duty has to watch the rest of the county. You can call the Border Patrol for backup, but you know they're 20 minutes or more away. So it's just you."

Six months ago, a smuggler's car was seized with a highly sophisticated communication system superior to anything the deputies have in their vehicles. And last year, deputies found a modern baseball-style grenade along a dirt path leading up from the river. They believe someone running security for a load of drugs dropped it. Deputies have also gathered information on smugglers armed with an RPG-7, a shoulder-fired rocket, and white phosphorous grenades.

"What we need is money to put more boots on the ground and give these guys better training and equipment," Sheriff Jernigan said.

"But this isn't just our fight. ... If border law enforcement doesn't work, than the rest of the country is going to lose."


Bracing for violence

That sentiment is echoed all along the border.

"El Paso County sees these types of criminal behaviors more often than we would like," El Paso County Sheriff Leo Samaniego said. "The border is so wide open this will be problematic until lawmakers in Washington, D.C., address these national-security concerns."

Officials on both sides of the border in the El Paso-Ciudad Juárez area are bracing for an increase in drug violence.

Two weeks ago, gunmen killed two Mexican police officers in Ciudad Juárez. And earlier in the month, police found the bodies of a former Interpol chief and his lawyer crammed into oil drums and sealed with concrete. Both men appeared to have been suffocated with plastic bags, authorities said.

Ciudad Juárez, a city of 1.3 million, is infamous for its powerful drug hub controlled by the Juárez cartel, whose No. 2 leader was arrested Nov. 11, along with other suspects. .

When President Bush visits El Paso this week, said Manuel Mora, the new FBI agent-in-charge, he will discover that while counterterrorism remains the top national security issue, drug trafficking remains the priority and poses the biggest criminal threat for the border city across from Ciudad Juárez.

"This is El Paso, Texas, and everyone here is vigilant about the drug problem and the crime that comes with it," said Mr. Mora. "I can't say that I've seen any of the alarming signs, but that doesn't mean we're not concerned," he said.

A senior Mexican intelligence official, however, had this sober assessment: "We're seeing the violence gradually move from the Nuevo Laredo region up the Rio Grande into the Juárez-Chihuahua area," the official said. "The war continues. What changes are the battle sites."


Sheriffs want help

This year, the sheriffs of 16 Texas counties joined forces to form the Texas Border Sherriffs' Coalition to lobby state and federal officials for help. They recently received a $500,000 state grant from Gov. Rick Perry.

"We know that border violence has escalated in Nuevo Laredo, and we have heard about activity pushing west towards El Paso County," said Rick Glancey, interim executive director of the group. "With the presence of the Texas Border Sheriffs' Coalition, we hope to intercept those problems before they make a hard push in any direction."

The coalition enthusiastically endorsed a bill introduced Nov. 17 by U.S. Reps. Silvestre Reyes, D-El Paso, and John Culberson, R-Houston, which would authorize $100 million to pay the direct costs of training and equipping additional deputies and pay overtime costs. It would also direct some funds to build detention beds to house illegal immigrants taken into custody.

The Homeland Security Department recently addressed another major complaint of border sheriffs – the loophole in immigration law that allowed illegal immigrants from nations other than Mexico, known as OTMs, to be released with a "notice to appear," pending deportation proceedings.

This month, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff announced a temporary stop of the notice to appear – known derisively along the border as "catch and release" – as part of a new border security initiative that includes funding for additional Border Patrol agents.

"If they want to fix it, they need to make it permanent," Sheriff Jernigan said. "The OTMs were coming through in droves from all over the world. They'd come up to us, asking where to find a Border Patrol agent. We'd see them later, waiting to hitch a ride along Highway 90. And no one had any idea of where they were going or what they might do once they got there."


It's not just drugs

Not all the border concerns stem from drugs or illegal immigration. In Vega Verde, a neighborhood along the river west of Del Rio that borders a major smuggling route,thieves come across the river, hit the homes there and get back to Mexico before deputies can arrive.

"They're taking guns, jewelry, air conditioners, anything they can get on a raft and get across," Deputy Faz said. "Landowners are frustrated. And my concern is that people will start taking the law in their own hands. What's going to happen if residents take up their hunting rifles against some Zetas bringing a load of dope across?"

Recently, deputies frustrated with the inaction of Mexican authorities staged an impromptu raid, taking boats across the river and seizing stolen property.

"The funny thing is, with all this activity on the river, the Border Patrol never showed up," Deputy Jose Luis Blancarte said. "We're bringing back TVs and air conditioners and nobody saw it? We don't have to worry about terrorists sneaking suitcase nukes across the border. They could be bringing whole bombs, and no one would know."

The border sheriffs say their main concern is the safety of their residents. "We don't want to be immigration officers," Sheriff Jernigan said. "We just want to make sure our counties are safe. To do that we need help, and that help has to come from the federal government.

"My nightmare is that it will take another 9-11 attack to wake up this country about the vulnerability of the border," he said. "And some border sheriff is going to have to say it came through his county."

I think this states the problem very plainly. The solution although not PC is to HELL with everybody else close our borders and protect our country USA.

Cowboy, you are dead on. In the name of Political Castration, we are sitting back and watching our own murder, while not being allowed to defend ourselves. Madness to everyone but the hippies and Islammunists!

I'm going to write to that guy at Dallas News. We need to join forces!

Dearest Mrs. Kirkland, Hi, it's Coop from Coop's Corner. I want you to know that I am thoroughly pleased with your knowledge of world events and especially the current ones that are life and death hanging in the balance. I agree that the border issue is a joke. Take for example that I just heard on the radio that all the recruiting numbers are current for the last thirteen months and now they are claiming that we don't have enough forces available to muster a few thousand men to cover the southern border. Ha! Please. This is obviously pacification at its worse. They are only making a show of concern, but really and truthfully, they are sinking billions of dollars to improve the southern areas of Texas with new scholls, hospitals and everything imaginable and all for the flood of immigrants that can legally enter fifty miles in unmolested from border patrol due to the NAFTA agreement. NAFTA was the tool that opened - correction - that completely did away with our borders. There is a real reason why though and it isn't because of concern for human beings. The real reason is that they have pretty much exhausted all reasonable developement here in the US. Most of the farm land is wore out and crops are forced to grow using fertilizers such as NPK. Most of the oil is gone as well in the mainland portion, this of course excluding ocean deposits and the Alaskan deposits. Then we have the reverse discrimination of hiring in the lower states done through the bi-lingual only need apply scandal. Thus when you realize what they are doing, they are actually creating a crisis that must be fixed. Washington knows that most of these illegals are still loyal to their home lands and really do not want to either learn English, nor forsake their birth citizenry. Knowing that there are untold riches still waiting to be found below the Rio Grande, I believe that if one connects the dots properly, that an attempt is being made to peaceable relocate the populations of the South Americans into America in order to open up their lands for seizure and developement. They have an almost inexhaustable untapped resource of minerals and land down there, Resa. But, there are people sitting on the land that must be encouraged to leave. I also believe, that due to the fact that Texas is the only state in the Union that can legally sever its relationship to the Union as one of its states, that the Latin invasion will cause such an outcry that we will do the most unthinkable thing: Which is to give them Texas. Now, I know you are thinking, gee wiz, Coop, that is unheard of to do. But that isn't so, because Israel has been a puppet for the globalist for some time now and they have been teaching us how to give up land for peace. Look at how little land Israel actually has in its possession and yet, it is still expected to give up portions of this land for the sake of peace. I believe that as we have requested this generosity to ensure global peace, that the La Raza uprising will force this same reaction from the world to us. I could go on, but I think I've given you enough ideas to run on this for a very long time. Be careful my dear; for honest people are a threat to those who are really running this world. America is being phased out and we will be economically ruined in another ten years if not less. This will pacify us just like it has worked in Mexico and all of South America for hundreds of years. For what real power do the poor have? This is why our industry is being shipped overseas, so that the products continue to be made, cheaper than ever before and new markets open up as never before and the Americans who are living from paycheck to paycheck can only worry about their next paycheck, but will have no way to rescue the world from tyranny any longer. I guess we could sum this all up in saying, "We are betrayed far beyond our wildest dreams."
Take care.
Respectfully, Hebrews 13:1, "Let brotherly love continue."
William M. Cooper, "Coop"
