I am a retired Police Officer from the Ca.Az. Mexico. We enforced immigration law everyday. Every Police Officer in this Nation takes an oath "To Protect and Defend the Constitution and to Enforce All Laws, State, Local and Federal". To not do so is a crime in its self. It is called an Act of Omission and the Officer could be prosecuted. Police Officers across America enforce Federal law everyday. Federal drug laws, Federal Commerce laws, Federal interstate transportation laws, Federal interstate equipment laws, Federal D.O.T. laws and airport Police enforce Federal Security laws. The Arizona laws forbids racial profiling in enforcing immigration law. The U.S. Code has no such prohibition. Those that protest the Arizona law should be careful of what they ask. If our Officers saw someone with a suitcase, a knapsack, clothes bundled or plastic bags with what appeared to be personal effects walking north towards the interstate we would do what is called a pedestrian check. If they spoke no English we would ask, "Donde su mecca" " No, No mecca". "Dispatch, would you inform B.P. I have a possible illegal detained at my location" In fact, there you are now trained to enforce Federal immigration law. It is legal. Ruled so by the Supreme Court. Any law enforcement Officer may ask anyone for I.D. States do not need a special law to enforce Federal immigration law or any Federal law. They are mandated to do so. No court is going to overturn enforcement of a Federal law. If they do they will have to prohibit the enforcement of all Federal laws by State and local agencies. Today in New York they have a S.U.V. with an explosive device in it. If the person that planted it like Al Queda claims, most likely entered the U.S. from the southern border. We detained and turned over to the Border Patrol illegal aliens from almost every country in the world. It was not uncommon to detain an illegal alien from Mexico early in a shift and turn them over to the Border Patrol. They would process them and return them to Mexico. Later in that same shift we would again detain that very same illegal alien and turn them over again. Law enforcement only apprehends one in five that enter our country illegally from the southern border. How does everyone think that we have an estimated 20 to 30 million here. Here are some F.B.I. stats for you.
25 Americans will die today at the hands of an illegal alien. 12 with die from outright homicide. 13 will die from an illegal alien that has no drivers license or insurance driving drunk. 95 percent of the murder warrants held by law enforcement are for illegal aliens. They are over 200,000 illegal aliens that are wanted by law enforcement for child molestation or child r**e.
Ca. spends between 10 and 15 billion a year on welfare benefits just to illegal aliens, yet they just cut back their funding to public schools and increased the tuition to State universities
The Tohono O'Odham Nation and Arizona asked this Administration and this Congress for help with this criminal problem. Obama responded by reducing the number of Border Patrol agents on the southern border by 180. Napoltiano lies. They are doing nothing to secure our southern border. She stopped the building of the three tier fence. Where it is in place in San Diego county it works.
Someone please tell me why the American taxpayer owes the citizens of Mexico free health care, free food, free housing. Someone please tell me why we must give jobs to illegal aliens from Mexico at the cost of our own. When do we put the American people first and do what is fair to them.
I am on the border and have done the job for 30 years. I have been on Federal and State Drug interdiction Task Forces. We have pursued drug running across the desert going north and pursued the mules with money going south. We confiscated tons of drugs going north and confiscated millions of dollars going south.
When a politicians loved one is murdered or raped then the law will be enforced. Why don't they hold their pro-amnesty rallies in the neighborhoods that the illegal alien gang members MS-13 control. Why don't they go to the families of the victims of those that died at the hands of the illegal aliens that have no legal right to be here and tell them how much they love the illegals.
This is what they do to our desert habitat. Why don't the left wing environmentalist come down here and clean this up. This is also what they do to our neighborhoods.
Last year I attended the funeral of a Border Patrol Agent run down by a illegal alien smuggler in Glamis Ca.
I just love these people that sit in their upper middle class or middle class homes, thousands of miles from here and think they know anything about the crime rates or what is going on down here.. Morons.
I am listening to Juan Williams saying that the borders are as secure as they have ever been and are more so now than they ever have been. Quoting Napolitano. Napolitano is pro amnesty and always has been. They lie, as always.. The border is not secure. If it was we would not be detaining illegals everyday.
