Is $600 Million Enough to Do The Job?

Is $600 Million Enough to Do The Job?

Immigration and Customs Enforcement Assistant Secretary John Morton visited Arizona recently. His visit was not viewed by many as anything other than a lame attempt to make people think the President cares about security on the border along Mexico.
"The administration blew past their promised Aug. 1 deadline to send 524 National Guard troops to Arizona, and now they are trying to appear concerned by sending the ICE director, who recently received a vote of 'no confidence' by ICE's union," Arizona Sheriffs Paul Babeu of Pinal County and Larry Dever of Cochise County said in a tersely worded statement.

The President cares alright, but what he cares about MORE is securing the Latino vote in the 2012 election and their votes for Democrats in this year's election.

Sending John Morton to Arizona did nothing to soften the people and impress Republicans. All it does is irritate them and make them more convinced that the visit has an agenda. It's just PR coverage for the President and the ICE Department.

Fox News Channel's Megyn Kelly asked Morton about his visit to Arizona, suggesting the President is just trying to appear concerned by sending the ICE director for a visit. Morton, who recently received a vote of 'no confidence' by ICE's union," denied that was the reason for the visit. He said he does care about the problems Arizona is having with illegal immigration and crime and that he has visited there before.
"Last week, the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council of the American Federation of Government Employees, which represents 7,000 ICE agents and employees, issued a statement saying the union had unanimously passed a "vote of no confidence" for Mr. Morton. The statement said ICE had "abandoned" its core mission of protecting the public to support a political agenda favoring amnesty.

The 259-0 vote said that instead of enforcing U.S. immigration laws and providing for public safety, ICE had directed its attention "to campaigning for programs and policies related to amnesty and the creation of a special detention system for foreign nationals that exceeds the care and services provided to most U.S. citizens similarly incarcerated."

The statement said the integrity of the agency "as well as the public safety" would be "better provided for in the absence of Director Morton" and Phyllis Coven, assistant director of the agency's office of detention policy and planning.

ICE called the statement "creative collective-bargaining tactics," but pledged to continue to work with the union "to address substantive issues in the interests of making our communities safer." It also said the agency is removing record numbers of criminal aliens, up 35 percent from a year ago." ...

We are grateful for the $600 million recently passed by Congress, but it makes one wonder if it is really another tactic used to get some of the Republican Representatives to side with Democrats on passing the Comprehensive Immigration Reform bill that they want so much.

Excuse me, but is it not enough to try buying Latino votes with Comprehensive Immigration Reform (basically giving them amnesty) without trying to buy Republican votes as well by passing the bipartisan bill for $600 million? This is exactly what they are doing with the $250 checks they're sending out to all Senior citizens--many of whom say they plan to send back their checks and telling the government to apply it to the deficit.

Lets' break down the $600 million that pays for more unmanned surveillance drones and about 1,500 more agents along the U.S.-Mexico border. Is it really an attempt to help border states or is it nothing more than another tactic to appease voters? I suppose time will tell.

The President has already allotted 524 troops to Arizona, 250 to Texas, 224 to California, 72 to New Mexico, and 130 to a national liaison office but has that happened yet? You remember that in July, President Obama said he was sending 1,200 National Guard troops to the border states by August 1st, 2010. Their role is suppose to detect border crossers and smugglers, and to assist in criminal investigations.

The full deployments have not taken place to date, August 14th 2010. Jack Harrison, U.S. National Guard Bureau spokesman, recently said that troops "will not be doing direct law enforcement" in prohibiting drugs or in capturing illegal immigrants.

Contrast President Obama's 1,200 troops to the 6,000 National Guard troops sent to the border in May 2006 by President Bush.
"Ralph Basham, U.S. Customs and Border Protection commissioner at the time, said the troops directly supported the Border Patrol through surveillance, intelligence gathering, entry identification, engineering and other duties. He said that while the soldiers were not involved directly in law enforcement, their presence led to the apprehension of 2,296 illegal immigrants and the seizure of 64 vehicles, 14,496 pounds of marijuana and 220 pound of cocaine." . . .

On Monday, the Obama administration said Mr. Morton, who heads ICE, would travel to the Arizona border along with Arizona Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Terry Goddard, the state's current attorney general.

The visit coincides with the passage on Tuesday by the House of a bipartisan bill for $600 million to pay for more unmanned surveillance drones and about 1,500 more agents along the U.S.-Mexico border. The House passed the bill by an unrecorded voice vote. The Senate passed an identical bill last week by unanimous consent, although it must act again, for technical reasons, before sending it to the president for his signature. . . .

This is how the money from the bill breaks down for border states.
  • $176 million for 1,000 new Border Patrol agents for a strike force for critical areas,
  • $89 million for 500 ICE personnel,
  • $32 million for unmanned aerial vehicles, or drones,
  • $196 million for the Justice Department to bolster its forces along the border

    • includes: U.S. marshals, and agents from the FBI, the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
Suddenly, this past month, Congress has become concerned about immigration. Wondering why? Could it be that people have become enraged by all the illegals coming into the United States, using up State and Federal resources, causing huge problems that states have to pay for out of their own budget, and the obvious security risk that it presents to our nation?

States cannot print money to cover their expenses like the Federal Government can and so they are taking it upon themselves to solve their own immigration problem without government cooperation.

Ya think perhaps illegal immigration has become a thorn in the sides of Democrat Majority in Congress? I've read that Representatives have been receiving an average of 145 recorded e-mails, letters or calls on the subject throughout the month of July.

I am sure that Arizona, Missouri, and 20 other states that are following the example of these two states, have caused great concern for this administration. Good for all of you people in these states and for you who wrote to Congress. I am proud of you for taking a stand on what is right in spite of the government trying to ignore us. Obviously, we have made a difference.

Also, it's interesting how Morton's visit just happens to be planned following a lawsuit by the Justice Department against Arizona's SB1070, a law that their state passed on coming down hard on illegal immigration.

Arizona challenged President Obama and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, a former Arizona governor. That must not have set well with them and likely prompted Morton's visit to their state. This just goes to prove that we can fight Washington when we come together as a group.

There is strength in numbers when fighting for a common goal. It is this same spirit that created the government we have now because the American settlers told England' that enough is enough! They changed history because they said "WE'RE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANY MORE"! We are starting to do the same. That excites me, and it makes me proud to be an American today!

United Nations Wants to Regulate Our Guns

How do you feel about the United Nations controlling our ability to have guns and register them with the UN? It seems Obama campaigned about the United States being under International Law. This is just ridiculous.

The Constitution gives us the right to bear arms but Obama wants to confiscate them. In order to take over our country and turn it into socialism, they have to know where they are so they can come and take away our guns.

How do you feel about being regulated by International Law and to have your guns removed from you? If you don't like it, you need to read this article and then sign the petition.

Facts of Sarah Palin and Michelle Obama

In case you missed this one.....revealing.
Sarah Palin
Democrat, Independent, or Republican....the second half of this e-mail should make all of us very sick, send this on .....especially the second half......

By Dewie Whetsell,  Alaskan Fisherman.
As posted in comments on Greta's article referencing the MOVEON ad about Sarah Palin.
The last 45 of my 66 years I've spent in a commercial fishing town in Alaska .  I understand Alaska politics but never understood national politics well until this last year.  Here's the breaking point: Neither side of the Palin controversy gets it.  It's not about persona, style, rhetoric, it's about doing things.  Even Palin supporters never mention the things that I'm about to mention here.
1. Democrats forget when Palin was the Darling of the Democrats, because as soon as Palin took the Governor's office away from a fellow Republican and tough SOB, Frank Murkowski, she tore into the Republican's "Corrupt Bastards Club" (CBC) and sent them packing. Many of them are now residing in State housing and wearing orange jump suits The Democrats reacted by skipping around the yard, throwing confetti and singing, "la la la la" (well, you know how they are). Name another governor in this country that has ever done anything similar.
2. Now with the CBC gone, there were fewer Alaskan politicians to protect the huge, giant oil companies here. So she constructed and enacted a new system of splitting the oil profits called "ACES." Exxon (the biggest corporation in the world) protested and Sarah told them, "don't let the door hit you in the stern on your way out." They stayed, and Alaska residents went from being merely wealthy to being filthy rich. Of course, the other huge international oil companies meekly fell in line. Again, give me the name of any other governor in the country that has done anything similar.
3. The other thing she did when she walked into the governor's office is she got the list of State requests for federal funding for projects, known as "pork." She went through the list, took 85% of the m and placed them in the "when-hell-freezes-over" stack. She let locals know that if we need something built, we'll pay for it ourselves. Maybe she figured she could use the money she got from selling the previous governor's jet because it was extravagant.
Maybe she could use the money she saved by dismissing the governor's cook (remarking that she could cook for her own family), giving back the State vehicle issued to her, maintaining that she already had a car, and dismissing her State provided security force (never mentioning - I imagine - that she's packing heat herself). I'm still waiting to hear the names of those other governors.
4. Now, even with her much-ridiculed "gosh and golly" mannerism, she also managed to put together a totally new approach to getting a natural gas pipeline built which will be the biggest private construction project in the history of North America. No one else could do it although they tried. If that doesn't impress you, then you're trying too hard to be unimpressed while watching her do things like this while baking up a batch of brownies with her other hand.
5. For 30 years, Exxon held a lease to do exploratory drilling at a place called Point Thompson. They made excuses the entire time why they couldn't start drilling. In truth they were holding it like an investment. No governor for 30 years could make them get started. Then, she told them she was revoking their lease and kicking them out. They protested and threatened court action. She shrugged and reminded them that she knew the way to the court house.  Alaska won again.
6. President Obama wants the nation to be on 25% renewable resources for electricity by 2025. Sarah went to the legislature and submitted her plan for Alaska to be at 50% renewable by 2025. We are already at 25%. I can give you more specifics about things done, as opposed to style and persona. Everybody wants to be cool, sound cool, look cool. But that's just a cover-up. I'm still waiting to hear from liberals the names of other governors who can match what mine has done in two and a half years. I won't be holding my breath.
By the way, she was content to return to AK after the national election and go to work, but the haters wouldn't let her. Now these adolescent screechers are obviously not scuba divers. And no one ever told them what happens when you continually jab and pester a barracuda. Without warning, it will spin around and tear your face off. Shoulda known better.
You have just read the truth about Sarah Palin that sends the media, along with the democrat party, into a wild uncontrolled frenzy to discredit her. I guess they are only interested in skirt chasers, dishonesty, immoral people, liars, womanizers, murderers, and bitter ex-presidents' wives.
So "You go, Girl." I only wish the men in Washington had your guts, determination, honesty, and morals.
I rest my case. Only FOOLS listen to the biased media.

If you've read this far now, open your eyes..........

Voter Fraud Allegations

Voter Fraud Allegations

The question is asked, "The press was given this, Why didn't the press coverage it? It's called This Chicago brand of politics came into the caucus states is something new and it set a new precedence that we have to change.

Yes, this video came from 2008 but it shows the history of campaign fraud. It appears that this type of election fraud is what we have to look forward to in the 2012 election for President. It ticks me off that our most sacred part of Democracy is being hi-jacked by this man.

Dems Rush to Push Through Border Bill

Dems Rush to Push Through Border Bill

We need to stand up to those who think it is alright to ignore state rights, granted by the Constitution, in order to fulfill the vision that Liberals have for America.

The majority of Americans believe in standing for the Constitution, the way it was written, and they expect the government to obey those standards as well.

As citizens, we must be accountable in obeying the law. Those who serve in the State Capital or in Washington must be accountable as well.

Americans want punishment to equal the crime when people break immigration laws. They are fed up with a different set of rules for Democrats and Liberals or for those with money and are elevated in status than for the average citizen.

Why should those who break our immigration law be allowed to come into the country illegally and given amnesty when others who obey, are still waiting.

Many Americans also feel angry because illegals abuse the intent of the law by having their children born here so they can by-pass the law and become instant citizens.

The unfairness of illegals receiving preference treatment when others obey the law and are still waiting to come into America legally is only one reason Americans demand that the government protect the borders.

What about all the people who die because they are inticed to come across the border? They come because they are looking for a better life and pay for it with their life?

What about all the litter left by the illegal traffic coming across the border? People who own property along the borders are finding their vehicles stolen and property damaged by illegals?

What about people living in fear along the border because they and their family members are being attacked or violated by gun tote'n illegals crossing the border?

What about the financial strain on states that have to enforce their laws and to incarcerate illegal criminals? In addition, consider the cost of illegal's free medical treatment, medication, schooling, and feeding them and their families.

With all the illegal traffic coming across the border, more of us are speaking up and telling Washington that we will no longer stand for their abuse of power and by not protecting the border for political gain.

Florida has drafted a law the goes beyond Arizona's law that was challenged in the court with key elements were shot down. However, Florida's governor believes their law will be upheld by the court if DOJ challenges it.

Some say that the governor is not really for this law and that he is doing it to win an election because he has heavy competition. It will be interesting to see how all this plays out next year because that is how long it will take before it can be voted on.
