"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio Understands Illegal Immigration

The sheriff that so many love to hate is on the right side of this argument and has my support.

Cross posted from Right Truth:

The Reality Check.org says that "Bush's Tough Talk on Immigration Falls Flat". No kidding. We agree with that completely. But the person who really does get it, is Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, "who had the audacity, in the Mexican government's view, to enforce an anti-human smuggling law that went into effect in Arizona last August." source

So here we have a foreign country meddling in U.S. domestic affairs and threatening the safety and wellbeing of American citizens, yet none dare call it what it is. One might also wonder why the ACLU and other privacy rights advocates are not up in arms about the Border Patrol providing information about American citizens to a foreign government. they're more worried about the "rights" of al-Qaeda contacts not to have their phone calls wiretapped by the National Security Agency than they are Minuteman Project volunteers. The fact that the Minutemen have consistently come under fire from the ACLU and other liberal groups would explain the double standard.

California Governor Arnold Schwarzegger is going so far as to host an official state dinner for Mexican President Vicente Fox this week. Fox will also address a joint session of the California Legislature and meet privately with Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez (D-Los Angeles). The same goes for Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who Fox is flying down to meet a few days later.

"RINOs" or "Republicans in Name Only" candidates and their left-leaning Democratic opponents, the GOP base is fed up. In Pennsylvania, 14 Republican incumbents were defeated in primaries, while Congressman Chris Cannon of Utah and Tom Osborne of Nebraska, both seen as weak on illegal immigration, lost out as well. In contrast, the Republicans who have chosen to break with their masters at the Chamber of Commerce are experiencing a surge in popularity. ...

If Americans wish to rescue their country from the brink of oblivion, they will be ever vigilant about the integrity of the ballot box. Granting illegal immigrants the vote would be the final victory in the campaign to render American citizenship meaningless. And with citizenship goes sovereignty. source
FrontPageMagazine has an article on terrorists that are already here in the United States. How did they get here? The author suspects as many as 1,000 al Qaeda terrorists are here, and probably more than that. I suggest that some of them probably came across the open borders, some with student visas and other legal means.

I received an email that has been going around the internet showing how strongly people feel about the illegal immigration situation:

The phrase "cheap labor" is a myth, a farce, and a lie. There is no such thing as "cheap labor." Take, for example, an illegal Mexican who sneaks in here with his wife and five children. He takes a job for five or six dollars an hour. At that wage with six dependents he pays no income tax, yet at the end of the year gets an "earned income credit" of up to $3,200 free. He qualifies for Section 8 housing and subsidized rent, food stamps, and free (no deductible, no co-pay) health care. His children get free breakfasts and lunches at school, and require bi-lingual teachers and books that taxpayers provide. He doesn't have to worry about car insurance, life insurance, or homeowners insurance. Taxpayers provide Spanish language signs, bulletins, and printed material. He and his family receive the equivalent of $20 to $30 an hour in benefits, while working Americans are lucky to have $5 or $6 an hour left after paying their bills and his, and paying for increased crime, graffitti, and trash cleanup.
Cheap labor................................. My A$$!
