and Mexican drug lords are targeting American kids. "There

When Arlington police extended an invitation
in March to members of the Latino community to better understand
how their police department works, dozens of residents eagerly
signed up for the 12-week Citizens' Academy. -- But some of those
who applied for the educational seminar were turned away when
they could not provide Social Security numbers. Upset that they
Immigration Policy Has Gone Beyond Reckless
...Radical Hispanic groups such as La Raza
and MEChA would return
the American Southwest to Mexico. One way is to flood us with
illegal immigrants whose loyalty lies south of the border, and
then use irresponsible politicians who, with the exception of
Mr. Bush, tend to be Democrats, to gain driving and voting privileges,
educate their children at our expense, and bring our health care
system to near ruin.
portrayed as victims again
Authorities can't say for sure how many
of the illegal immigrants
[criminals] smuggled into the country each year wind up working
as prostitutes or indentured servants, but they know that the
human traffickers who profit from their labor often exploit fear
of the U.S. government to keep their victims in line. [The Catholic church
is allegedly also involved in what appears to be aiding and abetting].

Diego not the same......
....I lived in San Diego for 42 years and moved
to TN 3 years ago for the obvious reasons, including cost-of-living
there. It's a total different life here in TN, that's

Invaders follow visit by National Park Service director
Nat'l Memorial, Ariz. - The same day that the National Park
Service director visited this border memorial nearly 100 illegal
immigrants were apprehended within hours after Fran Mainella
left. -- According to U.S. Border Patrol and memorial officials
two National Park Service rangers and a Border Patrol agent were

came upon a large group of illegal immigrants.
I am not against immigration. As a matter
of fact, I am very much in favor of it. Being an immigrant (legal,
that is) myself, I can see on my own example how much this country
can benefit from the immigrants. Well, not from all kinds of
immigrants, but from the right kind of immigrants: law abiding,
highly skilled individuals...

Report Shows Shrinking Middle Class
The 2000 Census data shows that during
the previous decade the share of middle-income U.S. households
fell to below one-third of all households. The less than 30 percent
of households that were in the $35,000 - $67,000 income range
was a decline from about 34 percent of households in the comparable
$25,000 - $50,000 range in 1990.
The justice system failed Mary Cortez
If there's anything I can't stand, it's
an editorial saying "we're all guilty" -- in this case
for the tragic death of Mary Cortez. -- On the contrary, every
poll shows that the American people want immigration to be legal,
controlled and reduced. Citizens want alien criminals thoroughly
punished and then deported across fortified borders.

enforcement. These days, local and state police increasingly

Federal authorities said Monday that
they will continue to patrol the Palomino neighborhood [of N.E.

gang members despite earlier complaints from activists who say
law enforcement officials are unfairly targeting the area. --

gangsters need to be picked up and shipped out.

murder cases prove most elusive
...In Aurora over the last four years,
investigators cleared 34 percent of Hispanic homicides, compared
with 61 percent for blacks and 53 percent for whites. --- The
reasons vary. In cities such as Chicago and Aurora, where the
majority of Hispanic homicides are gang-related, a code of silence
cripples investigations. -- Cultural and language barriers also
can stump investigators.

fence plan runs into a barrier
A corrugated metal fence that separates
the USA from Mexico starts near here at the Pacific Ocean and
runs 14 miles inland. It's a stained and rusty reminder that
San Diego was once the place along the U.S.-Mexico border most
