American Border Patrol
The National Conservative Weekly Describes ABP's Ambitious
Events - week of Jan. 17 -- By Robert Bluey
Glenn Spencer has big plans for his American Border Patrol
organization in 2005, including a new home, better monitoring
of illegal aliens, and the hope that federal Border Patrol agents
will benefit from the work he's doing on the Arizona border with
"Here on the border the problem
is simple," said Spencer, the organization's president who
founded it in June, 2002. "Here's the law. Here's the line.
What's the problem?"
Word on the street is that Ralph
Reed wants to go to Congress and will be running for a House
or Senate seat in 2006. -- Just what Georgia needs ... another
promoter of the President's "guest worker bill that isn't
an amnesty" joining the family of open borders brothers.
Sean "I'll carry the President's bags" Hannity grilled
Reverend Ralph the other night on his "I love the President"
workers losing jobs: We need 'guest workers'?
For the past century, raisins in California's
Central Valley have been harvested in exactly the same way: a
monthlong frenzy of hand picking that required more workers than
almost any other crop. -- Last season, many raisin growers turned
to machines to do the work. Although they had long held out,
they are now joining growers nationwide in embracing mechanization...
orders outpace the ability to carry them out
An estimated 400,000 people who have
been ordered out of the United States, including many convicted
criminals or those from terrorist states, are still living in
the country - in some cases decades after getting deportation
orders - because federal officials have failed to ensure their
removal. -- Twenty-two cities nationwide this year will get full-time
teams of enforcement officers...

Life Like That?
Funny, *they* say Life is Like that!
Or that is what I hear from time to time. -- And yes indeed,
life is like that. Unfair, judgmental, one-sided. Or is it the
media, and not life is really like that? For the most part. --
Case in point and no pun intended: Opening scene, Glenwood Springs,
Colorado and a business called the Busy Bee Cleaning Service....
Mexicans continue grousing over Prop. 200
Mexico City -- For months, Arizona's
Proposition 200 evoked nothing but yawns among Mexican media
and politicians. But in the weeks since it became law, the measure
has started raising hackles nationwide. --- "This law provokes
a xenophobic attitude, a discriminatory attitude," said
Eliana Garcia Laguna, a PRD lawmaker... -- Garcia Laguna and
other members of the PRD... called on Fox to withdraw Mexico's
ambassador to Washington.
Priorities Blur Along the 'Wild Frontier'
N.M. - Frustrated by security crackdowns in Arizona, thousands
of illegal immigrants and drug traffickers are flooding once-quiet
New Mexico, making it the newest frontier in America's struggle
to control its southern border. -- Border Patrol agents who once
caught handfuls of immigrants a day here now arrest 140 or 150
|BBC -- January
say "This is Mexico"
Owen Bennet-Jones (BBC): They're here illegally and they should go back to
Mexico; what do they think of that?
Illegal Mexican invader
(translator): They're saying that this
is Mexican territory; why are they going to kick us out of here?
Jones (BBC): Well now it's the United
Illegal Mexican invader
(translator): Look around.
Jones (BBC): All you see is Mexicans. Listen

renews amnesty debate, but idea gets little support locally
President Bush did not mention immigration
in his second inaugural address last week, but it is certain
to become an issue in Congress during his second term. In the
days prior to the speech Thursday, he renewed his call for an
amnesty plan and a guest worker program. It is a commitment that
even some of his staunchest Republican supporters find hard to
To End The Marriage Visa Racket
Since I moved back to California in 1988,
I've received three marriage proposals. -- None had anything
to do with love. They were straight business propositions wherein
I- an American citizen - would be paid to marry illegal aliens.
Then my new bride would be able to pursue legal permanent residence.
