State Senator Sylvia Allen: Arizona In a State of Emergency


By Senator Sylvia Allen

Senator Sylvia Allen

The Arizona border remains under assault. This assault is not diminishing but increasing! Just south of Arizona, Mexico is in a state of civil war. The death toll in Mexico is more than 40,000 lives lost since 2006. Only the Mexican military is able to maintain any semblance of order, and many within Mexico are now even openly questioning “for how long?” In a recent exclusive interview with Newsmax, former Mexican President Vicente Fox said bluntly his nation was at “war” with drug cartels. “Everybody’s trying to deny that we’re going through a war but that’s what it is.”

Graphic photos of beheadings, kidnapping scenes, and mass graves are sent to me weekly in Border Briefing reports. The cartels/gangs have corrupted Mexican law enforcement at all levels, thereby protecting their illicit $12-billion-a-year criminal enterprise. You would think the United States government would be greatly concerned; you would think those in positions of public trust in Washington would spend at least as much time working on stabilizing Mexico as they do on Egypt and Libya. Yet hardly a word is said about the increasing problems and threats stemming from our immediate neighbor to the south other than the spin from Washington that “the border is safer now than ever.” But to those of us tasked with providing security to the citizens of Arizona and beyond, nothing of substance is said or enacted and, all the while, a war is headed this way. This war is real, and it is dangerous, and soon this war will be fought with increasing measures in America.

NewsMax devoted two months last Spring conducting more than 20 interviews during visits to border areas in Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona. They found overwhelming evidence that Mexico’s drug cartels have already penetrated deep into our nation’s heartland, and Americans are increasingly fearful.

As Chairman of the Arizona Senate Committee on Border Security, my committee heard testimony last year from many citizens who live in the border area. They reported home invasions, vandalism, stolen property, and a host of other criminal activities. An Intelligence Briefing to a Joint Session of Selected Legislators on November 10th, 2011, by Zack Taylor, retired Border Patrol Supervisory Agent, and Dr. Lyle Rapacki, a Threat Assessment and Intelligence Specialist, went even further than the NewsMax articles. These experts reported how “lookout posts” are positioned in key points throughout the desert, and as far north (65-miles from the border) as the City of Casa Grande, Arizona, the I-8 corridor and Apache Junction, and along the I-10 corridor approaching the bedroom community of Ahwatukee. This briefing further revealed that the cartels (and lookouts) are heavily armed with military-grade weapons, camouflage, sophisticated and expensive night-vision goggles, satellite communications, food and water, and organized logistical support. If you go to the Pinal County Sheriff’s website, you can read many reports of drug busts, fire fights, auto chases, and other serious encounters with the cartels/gangs/human smugglers occurring frequently in Pinal County, which is far inside the border of the United States of America.

Additionally, and with as much concern, Arizona has to deal with health issues and trash, mounds of trash left by illegals marching into America. Fifth-generation rancher Jim Chilton has seen his once-beautiful ranch, just a few miles from the border with Mexico, be destroyed with crushed trees and cactus, whole hillsides turned into charred eyesores, years worth of his award-winning conservation projects obliterated – and his ranch is littered with trash, tons of trash, and some of this trash is dead bodies. Mr. Chilton stated: “I’ve got 30,000 to 40,000 illegal aliens coming right through my ranch every year, and the Forest Service says each one leaves about eight pounds of trash. This means 100 tons of trash. Some of my cows eat the plastic bags that are thrown down, and about 10 head of cattle die per year, and their deaths are slow and painful. At $1,200 per cow lost, this means I lose $12,000 a year in cows to trash!”

Adding insult is the Bureau of Land Management with their insane proposal to shut down target shooting on 490,000 acres in the Sonoran Desert National Monument, and another 1.4 million acres of additional public lands in Pinal County. The Bureau claims shooters are leaving trash behind. It is NOT the shooters who are decimating the desert but drug and human smugglers! The BLM knows this but have developed this ploy to restrict Arizonans from entering this land. Arizona Game and Fish, on their maps, warn hunters that 35 miles north of the Border the land is impacted by illegal activity from illegals. Arizona is losing control of her sovereign land!

Tragedy upon tragedy, as we add the fires set by illegals that have destroyed our lands! Senator McCain was correct this past summer laying blame on the illegals for some of the horrific and terribly destructive fires that were purposefully set. It cost more than $70 million to fight these insidious fires, and the official U.S. Government response was to attempt to silence McCain. Why is the apparent official policy of the United States to ridicule and silence those who are trying to protect our state of Arizona? Why are the cartels protected? Why do official U.S. government departments, sworn to protect American citizens, extend protection to gangs working with the drug cartels, and even to terrorists entering our nation from various border entry points?

In 2007, speaking on the Larry King show, former Mexican President Vicente Fox confirmed the coming merger with Mexico, Canada, and the United States. Not only did Fox admit that he and George W. Bush had agreed to create a common currency, the Amero, he also contended that a North American Union is “inevitable.” There is, on the other hand, no will to secure our borders or to enforce our laws. There is a concerted, deliberate, and sophisticated program under way to erase our national boundaries and create a North American Union. Merging our country with Mexico and Canada would be a losing proposition for Americans. The governments of these three countries are not alike. The gift of sovereignty handed to us by our Forefathers would be extinguished, and we would become subjects, no longer free. I do not want this for myself or my grandchildren!

Progressive groups, radicals of many persuasions, and even anti-American groups are using the cry for “Open Borders” for their own purposes, and not for the concern of migrants. Those purposes include, but are not limited to, undermining our form of government and eroding our national sovereignty. Many of those entangled are innocent bystanders who become subject to blackmail and abuse by “coyotes,” cartels, human and slave traffickers, and radical political groups who have agendas that reach far beyond the safety and legal status of a vulnerable illegal family. With the recent recall of Senator Russell Pearce, the open borders crowd feels empowered, and they have no intention of stopping until they rid the political and governing scene of each and every individual who stands in the way of full and completely open borders, no national boundaries, and the complete remaking of America into the North American Union.

As an Arizona state legislator, I took an oath to uphold the Federal and State Constitutions and the laws of our land. If those laws need to be changed, we have a process by which people, through their elected representatives, can change them. In the meantime, elected representatives and residents are encouraged to live by the laws intended to provide order and safety for all. There is no higher calling for an elected official, state or federal, than to protect the freedom and public safety of the citizens they represent. Border Security ranks supreme. Without first securing the border, we will never be able to solve the myriad issues involving illegal immigration.

Arizona is in a State of Emergency. If we want to protect our national and state sovereignty, we must secure our border and enforce our laws. This is NOT a political move or call to action; this is a call to declare a State of Emergency in Arizona to preserve our land, our citizens and their property, and our state sovereignty, with all the means afforded to us by the Constitution of the United States of America.

We are still seeking donations to build the border fence. Please take a look at the “Build the Border Fence” website, and consider making a generous donation.

Best wishes to all of you during this holiday season. Despite the gloomy news on the border, we have much to be grateful for! God willing, we will make some progress on securing the border in the months ahead. The next Update will discuss some solutions to the border emergency.

  1. An excellent report Senator Allen. Arizona is quite fortunate to have you in the legislature. I am waiting for others to step up and fill the void created by the recall of Russell Pearce, particularly from the following senators who broke and ran at a snap of the fingers from the Chamber of Commerce: Nancy Barto, Rich Crandall, Adam Driggs, Linda Gray, John McComish, John Nelson, Michele Reagan, Steve Pierce, and Steve Yarbrough. These nine state senators, including newly elected senate president Steve Pierce, have less than one year to prove that they are NOT in the pockets of illegal immigration profiteers and to demonstrate WHY they should be re-elected.

    • Read beyond the first sentence this time?

      Doubtful.

      • It would appear you read none of this one. Senator Allen has eloquently capsulized the still growing cancer at the border and in the state’s southern region, and all you can muster is a school yard attack on me. Why don’t you just stick to your comfort zone at the home of one-liner idiocies, the diseased sewer known as the New Times?

        • Eloquently? LOL

          Yeah, because someone who cites NewsMax gains a whole lot of credibility in my book.
          And 4 year old interviews.
          And throws figures around without any source.
          And that’s just a few off the top of my head.

          But hey, it’s all most likely a UNION PLOT!
          Isn’t NewsMax like, um, like an offshoot of the SEIU?

          Got anyone over at New Times that confuses newspapers with Unions?

      • Allen, who wants our kids to be taught that the earth is 6000 years old.

        They don’t get much dumber.

        Did they find that Union Leader in Manchester yet?

        • Whow cares what her religous views are. Arn’t you leftists always on guard, and rightly so, about religiion influencing politics? I didn’t read anything in the article where Ms. Allen was citing religious sources to make her points.

          • Do you want a zealot in congress who is responsible for school funding? Talking about the mind behind this lady, there isn’t much there if she can honestly believe, in the year 2011 that the earth is 6000 years old.

    • LEO IN TSN says:

      Sen. Allen has put forth an accurate report on our border wars. Her detractors quote all kinds of sanctuary city/state police chiefs and senators, but their hollow declarations do not change the facts. Their deceitful words are given publicity because of their politically correct (but false) remarks, and the reality of the cross-border violence is ignored.

      Those who choose to wallow in sanctimonious sarcasm would be better served to look for the truth in current events, such as the three bodies found executed last week in AZ; the AZ border bandits out hunting Border Patrol Agents, killing Brian Terry. And how ‘bout this latest from Sen. John (Give ‘em Amnesty) Cornyn’s own sanctuary state:

      http://latino.foxnews.com/latino/news/2011/11/23/alleged-zetas-members-attack-undercover-operations-in-houston/

      The cartel violence is here, because of our open border and our non-enforcement politicians.

      Thank you Senator Allen, for your clarity and dedication.

      God bless America.

    • Usually when she opens her mouth, she embarrasses herself and her party. I was surprised that she didn’t this time.

  2. If you are serious about taking on the drug cartels, you would push for serious penalties for those people convicted of selling drugs. Capital punishment is a solution, but one that our legislature is too cowardly to enact as a punishment for this type of crime. Cut the demand for drugs in the United States, and the drug cartels will dissappear. Do what we are currently doing — light sentences, and virtually no enforcement, and the problem will continue.

    • Everyone who’s used illegal drugs is guilty of enabling murder and violence. Stop the use and there’s no business.
      But so far, selfish hedonism rules the day. A national disgrace.

      • Ah, more hyperbole. Tell me how someone with a medical marijuana card who grows their own supply in their house is enabling murder and violence?

        • Pot alters people’s thinking and reasoning processes and their consciences. That means other people have to carry more burdens for the people who’ve opted out on normal adult duty and responsibility.

          • More ducking and weaving. Focus. I asked if someone with a MMJ card who grows their own in their house is enabling murder and violence. But, you can’t ever answer a question.

            BTW, did you see the new study?

            Study shows Medical Marijuana laws reduce traffic deaths.

            http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2011-11/uocd-ssm112911.php

            You don’t use pot, I get that, neither do I, but what is your excuse for your altered thinking and reasoning processes? LOL

              “Study finds passage of upcoming marijuana initiative will increase traffic fatalities”

              “Study Finds Passage of California Cannabis Initiative
              Will Increase Traffic Deaths”

              “Marijuana May Overtake Alcohol as a Major Contributing Factor in Fatal Crashes”

              “June 2, 2010 – Moraga, CA A recent study by Al Crancer Jr. a retired research analyst for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has found that that passage of the upcoming California initiative this November “TC2010″ as it is commonly known might triple the amount of traffic deaths of marijuana related deaths on California highways. “No one is looking at the effect of the passage of this initiative on traffic deaths and injury,” said Al Crancer, Jr. “Everyone is focusing on the tax revenue benefit to the state of California”.

              “The study showed that the largest increases in fatalities in fatal crashes where the driver tested positive for marijuana occurred over the 5 years following the legalization of medical marijuana in January 2004. There were 1240 fatalities in fatal crashes where the driver tested positive for marijuana for the following five years, compared to the 631 fatalities for the five years before for an increase of almost 100%.”

              “Based on data from 2008 there were 8 counties in California with 16% or more of the drivers in fatal crashes testing positive for marijuana and 5 of the 8 counties had 20% or more. Based on this experience, California could see a use rate of 16% to 20%, which would triple the present level of 230 fatalities in 2008. At these levels, marijuana would rival alcohol as the top cause of traffic fatalities in California.”

              “There is not a law enforcement officer in the state of California that would disagree with the data and the premise that deaths will increase on the streets and highways if the initiative passes”, said Crancer.

              “The California Board of Equalization estimates that a tax income of $1.4 billion yearly could be expected if “TC2010″ passes. “This tax benefit is small compared to the economic loss, if it passes.” Crancer added. “From a public health point of view, the passage of “TC2010″ might prove to be of epidemic proportions”.

              Who authored the above study and what is his expertise?

              “About Al Crancer Jr.”

              “Crancer lives in Moraga, California today and is the principal of Crancer and Associates, a statistical research group that conducts research and analyses in traffic safety. In addition, Mr. Crancer has published numerous research articles that appeared in such journals as Science, Journal of the American Medical Association, and the American Journal of Psychiatry.” He is ALSO a retired research analyst for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

              So the above study was done by a man who conducts research and analyses in traffic safety.

              Who authored the study you cited?

              “Daniel Rees, professor of economics at the University of Colorado Denver who co-authored the study with D. Mark Anderson, assistant professor of economics at Montana State University.”

              Economics? What does that have to do with traffic safety?

              Just more typical Lampoon/TC bull and deception in the classic Pinko style!

              • One difference between your story and mine. Yours has no data, it just says “may” and then attempts to predict the future. My story pulls actual data from states that approved MMJ. Not sure if you can comprehend that.

                You still think I’m TC? LOL

              • Conservative American says:

                Well, TC, the difference between the study you cited and the one which I have cited is this:

                Daniel Rees, PhD

                Education & Degrees
                PhD, Labor Economics, School of Industrial and Labor Relations, Cornell University
                MS, Economics, University of Wisconsin, Madison
                BA, Oberlin College

                D. Mark Anderson, Ph.D.

                Assistant Professor
                Department of Agricultural Economics and Economics
                Montana State University

                Al Crancer Jr.

                Retired research analyst for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
                The principal of Crancer and Associates, a statistical research group that conducts research and analyses in traffic safety.

                Not sure if you comprehend this, TC, but the problem isn’t with the data, the problem is with the qualifications of those conducting the study you cited.

                Rees studied Labor Economics and Anderson is an Assistant Professor in the department of Agricultural Economics.

                Now if you want to know something about labor economics or agricultural economics, by all means, go to Rees and Anderson. If you want to know something about traffic safety, go to Crancer.

                I know that this is extremely difficult for you to grasp, TC, but who conducts research and what their credentials are regarding the subject of the research is the first thing to be examined. All of the numbers, statistics and analysis in the world don’t mean squat if you are looking at traffic safety research conducted by economists instead of traffic safety research conducted by someone with expertise in traffic safety. Duh!

                Have a nice day, TC! :-)

              • CA, I welcome their research using actual data that was actually collected in the actual real world in those states that approved MMJ.

                But, they haven’t done that yet, so you have no answer to the study I posted.

                Come on, you are smarter than this? Did you take logic and persuasion classes in college? (did you go to college?)

              • Conservative American says:

                Rees and Anderson have NO expertise whatsoever regarding traffic safety! It’s not their field. They are economists, one who studied labor economics and one who studied agricultural economics. They have no credentials whatsoever regarding traffic safety; zero, zilch, nada.

                Al Crancer Jr. is a retired research analyst for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration AND he currently runs a statistical research group that conducts research and analyses in traffic safety. It is his area of expertise.

                The next time you’re sick, go see an economist instead of a physician. That should be just fine with you because it doesn’t matter to you if the person treating you has expertise in the field of medicine or not. You might be able to save a lot of money, LOL!

                Here are a few tips for evaluating authors from the University of Nevada:

                “Look at the author’s credentials. How qualified is the author of the source?”

                “What is the author’s educational background? Is the author’s area of expertise relevant to the research you are conducting? (If not, then you will want to consider finding another source.)”

                “What else has the author written in the past about this topic? (If this is the author’s first publication in this area, s/he may not be the kind of credible, expert source you are looking for.)”

                “Why is this author considered an expert or reliable authority? Who considers them to be an expert?”

                http://writingcenter.unlv.edu/writing/sources.html

                Rees and Anderson fail on all of those points. It’s fundamental when looking at research to FIRST determine if the authors have expertise regarding the subject about which they are writing. Rees and Anderson have no expertise whatsoever regarding traffic safety and Al Crancer Jr. does.

                Have a nice day, TC! :-)

            • Your silly. Anyone, even the most causal smoker of pot, at least knows that it’s as much a mind altering substance as booze is and in the long run has proven to damage the cognitive abilities of the brain, as much as booze does.

              • Wow…go to Calif and grow your own pot…yeah that’s the ticket…so let’s add this to the traffic deaths…stealing your neighbors pot and if caught, you can kill him for it…how many ppl without jobs could afford pot…so now you’re left with only one easy task…instead of robbing and burglarizing ppl…you cut out the middle crime and all you have left is pot jacking IMO.

              • Frank, you have been watching too many episodes of Dragnet.

                Next thing you will say is that they were hopped up on goofballs.

                LOL

    The Amero myth – really? The last time I saw that was in 2008 when a paralegal tried to persuade me, over some adult beverages, that by 2010 we’d all be under the Amero standard.

    Well, it’s 2012 soon … No Amero, no North American Union … unless … wait for it … N A U – its all so clear now, Arizona’s mountain university is the secret base for eventual overthrow of the US government. NAU doesn’t stand for N. Az Uni, it code speak for N. Amer Union.

    Death to all Lumberjacks! To the black helicopters!

    BTW: Because Madam Senator puts so much faith in three lines extracted from a four-year-old interview, she must also then be a fan of Venezualian dictator Hugo Chavez, he being the credited in the same interview as having destroyed the plan to create a North American Union, thereby saving us all. /sarcasm

      NOTICE: The above poster, “True Conservative”, is a same-sex marriage liberal posing as a conservative.

    • What don’t you know or understand about the New World Order’s agenda? Apparently, everything! You really should go and stick your head back in the sand or wherever else you’ve been hiding it. Look at what’s going on in the world all around you, you twit!

  4. The video where Sylvia says (twice!) that the earth is 6000 years old!

    http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/badastronomy/2009/07/06/arizona-is-6000-years-old/

    Even crazier than Leslie Whiting Johnson, who wanted to limit the number of dildos that a person in AZ could own. Congrats Arizona!

    • Doesn’t matter, your’e the one that’s being illogical now. I’m no religous nut or fanatic either, but what Slyvia believes on religion is a moot point when it comes to border issues. One is a matter of ones faith, where the other is a matter of facts. Why don’t you focus on those facts, rather than her beliefs.

  5. Too bad Sylvia Allen did ABSOLUTELY ZERO to secure the border since she’s been in office.

    ZERO, ZILCH, NADA, NICHTS

    Run a bill to bring home the Arizona national guard and PUT THEM AT THE BORDER.

    No, Ms. Allen will not do something that actually SECURES the border. She’ll work on bills that give her good public relations and in the background sellout this state’s citizens to the feds.

  6. I think her hair is in a state of emergency.

    • She looks like Wilma Flintstone…you know, the woman who lived with dinosaurs, 6000 years ago!

      • You might consider that no one is or has ever been in any mortal danger from thinking the Earth is 6000 years old, but people ARE dying this day from cross-border criminal violence.

        You mock the one so you can hide from facing the ugly truth of cross-border violence. You also in typical Liberal Left hypocrisy play beauty shop mysogynist biddy by mocking a woman on her looks because it’s an easy cheap shot so you can dodge discussing murders.

        There’s a PROBLEM, and it’s a very scary one.
        We need people who don’t piss in their pants and run, or sit around whinging like some old hag trying to pretend what exists today doesn’t. That cowardly delusion to deny the gruesome border reality far surpasses any ideas of what may or may not have happened 6000 years ago.

        • So, teaching stupidity and flat out ignorance is OK with you? Really? Wanumba, do YOU believe the earth is 6,000 years old?

          LOL

          Wanumba, protector of the ignorant zealots.

          • You’d rather talk about something that may or may not have happened 6,000 years ago, than what’s happening two hours from your house.

            You redefine “ignorant zealot” into a whole new universe of self-deluded promposity.

            • You demand answers, yet, you never answer any question. Do you think the earth is 6000 years old? If not, does it bother you that an elected official is so completely ignorant about science? Do you want someone like that in charge of how the state runs its public schools?

              You really are afraid of answering any question put forth to you.

              • Can you do ANYTHING about what happened 6,000 years ago? Can anyone?
                NO. Does it change this morning’s need to get up and go to work on time? NO.

                Can you do something about stopping border-crossing criminality from over-running our citie and towns? YES.

                WHat worthless waste of time is it for you to bitter cling to such a stupid “litmus test.” You go home and high five yourself for being soo clever on nothing? You demand answers while you dodge every request to FOCUS ON REALITY TODAY.

                Talking to you is like talking to a goat.

              • Come on Wanumba, is the earth 6000 years old, or is it 4.5 billion years? You like to demand that posters shoot straight and answer questions, but you can’t?

                I’ve asked you 2 questions in the last week, and you have run away from them, attempting to dodge them.

                Walk the talk, answer my questions, they are on topic (since we have been discussing them back and forth)

              • It’s got nothing to do with border issues. Someone stated she is just an opportunist, politically speaking and that is more important in judging her sincerity on her concerns for the border than her religious beliefs. Why are you so fixated on this? Could it be that you don’t really care about border issues yourself? At least be honest if that’s the case.

  7. Really,

    “A recent USA Today analysis of Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and California found that crime within 100 miles of the border is below both the national average and the average for each of those states—and has been declining for years. Several other independent researchers have come to the same conclusion.”—New York Times, Nov. 1, 2011

    and

    “I think the border-influenced violence is getting worse… But is it a spillover of Mexican cartel members? No, I don’t buy that.”—Police Chief Roberto Villasenor, Tucson, Arizona

    “The sky is not falling…What’s happened now is we’ve got rhetoric that’s driving the policy.”—Police Chief Victor Rodriguez, McAllen, Texas

    “As far as the Texas border is concerned, to my knowledge, we have not had spillover violence, per se.”—Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, March 17, 2010

    “We have not seen a significant spike in crime on the U.S. side of the Southwest border.”–Amy Pope, Deputy Chief of Staff, U.S. Department of Justice, in hearing May 11, 2011

    The rhetoric and the misinformation continue. Sheriff Paul Babeu is a media clown, and lied to try to cover for the Louis Puroll incident. McCain still hasn’t substantiated his claims of illegals starting the fires.

    And the Amero, again. Come on lady.
    Oh, and BTW, I grow my own, so I am not supporting anyone’s cartel.

    • So, you post under the influence? Drive, too?

    • And a border patrol agent really isn’t dead, never shot in the back by a gun supplied by Eric Holder’s Justice Department. His family is grieving for no reason!

      Ain’t pot grand? Can make reality seem like fantasy.

      • Hey Wanumba, do you believe the Amero is real? Do you believe that someone with a medical marijuana card, growing their own is contributing to crime and violence. Do you think the earth is 6000 years old?

        Do you avoid difficult questions and hem and haw and hope that other posters forget while you continue to make craven personal attacks on them?

        (hint, the last answer is YES)

    Sylvia Allen “represents” the area around Snowflake – not exactly a hotbed of illegal immigrant and cartel activity. If illegal immigration is such a huge problem in Arizona, why aren’t any of the representatives from the border counties weighing in on it? The loudest voices are those from Snowflake, Fountain Hills (Kavanagh), and Lake Havasu City (Gould) – probably the areas LEAST affected by immigration in our state. The public (including Republicans in LD18) are tired of politicians playing on people’s fears to promote a personal agenda.

    Another legislator like Russell Pearce who’s never held a real job in the private sector.

    • Even the cancerously liberal NBC runs an ongoing series called “The War Next Door”, and recently interviewed ranchers who live in day to day terror, with the scum of the earth crossing their land daily. They leave tons of garbage (which kills cattle from eating plastic bags), destroy fences, burglarize homes. Southern Arizona is a political cesspool, with liberals (boosted by pimple-popping U of A students) firmly in control of district 8, and Raul “boycott Arizona” Grijalva dominating district 7. So now you’ve made the rule that if you don’t live on the border, you are required to ignore the invading plague? These people don’t live on the border either:

      Christopher “Buddy” Rowe, age 4, Santa Rosa, CA, killed 8/23/11 by unlicensed hit and run illegal alien Marcos Lopez Garcia

      Anna Bronson, age 11, Belton, MO, killed 7/5/11 in head-on crash by drunken illegal alien Felix Solano-Gallardo

      Jonathan Campbell, age 15, Buford, GA, killed 6/24/11 by unlicensed illegal alien Jhony Velasquez Castillo

      Shakir West, age 3, Cincinnati, OH, killed 4/4/11 by hit and run illegal alien Rodolfo Temaj Felix

      Jacob Tucker, age 9 months, Beaumont, TX, killed 1/24/11 by drunken illegal alien Legarda Quezad

    Got anyone over at New Times that confuses newspapers with Unions?

    I discovered that they are the “height” of honesty, reliability and decorum at New Times where you are much more comfortable.
    So, what the hell are you doing hanging here, then?

    Hey Sylvia,

    I think I found the guy who came up with this whole idea of people and commerce flowing freely across the borders of the US, Canada, and Mexico all the way back in 1979:

    http://youtu.be/hcTPwHY-LpY

    I think he might have started all of this talk with his “North American Accord” campaign proposal.

    • Ahh, I think we found someone that actually knows another little secrete regarding the “great communicator”. To wit, he was one of the original “SELLOUTS”, and can rightly take his place among the nations losers along with the neo conned bush family, the vile Billy the Bomber of Belgrade Clinton, and real agent that pushed NAFTA through for his “enemy” George Bush Senior, and of course, that great Agent of Change we can all believe in, President Bail out Wall Street first, Obama. Paints quite a picture of our leaders of the past twenty five or so years, no?

  11. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if Mexico didn’t exist?

    I can dream can’t I?

  12. Somebody get Congressman Raul Grijalva to help on this issue. Hold it, I forgot that he is working for Mexico, since he tried to economically nuke Arizona with a boycott, when SB1070 was passed to try to portect Arizona from what is happening now at an increased pace. Somebody has to tell the Obama administration. Hold it partner. They sued Arizona after Arizona passed SB1070 to try and help with the problems described above. Somebody tell Senator McCain at least. Hold it …..etc. He tried desperately along with President Bush to get amnesty and open borders with Narco State. What is a poor little American citizen to do but go back to relying on the mean Governor Brewer. She and those citizens in their right minds might actually help this situation.

  13. Larry Stewart says:

    Perhaps we need to see the US Attorney General and the Director of Homeland Security in Sheriff Joe’s tent prison?

  14. To all you Naysayers who rebut Senator Allen’s article:

    You are either clueless liberals or members of the Communist “La Raza” faction. Either way, your ideologies are at odds with our Constitution and hundreds of millions of Americans.

    Pull your heads out of your anal aperatures and find our what’s really going on at the southern border. Take a trip into my backyard in rural Pinal or Pima Counties in Arizona. Don’t bother sight seeing in Tucson, you won’t get the big picture treking the streets there. Better bring the 4-wheeler this trip, some water, some automatic weapons and a few hundreed rounds of full metal jacket to get a glimpse of Sonoran reality.

    The War is real and it’s marching Northward to your backyard soon. I’m locked and loaded – or you?

Speak Your Mind
