Police Chief: Officers In Danger From Gang Members
Ceres, Calif. -- Two weeks after two
officers were gunned down in the city of Ceres, its police chief
says gang intelligence has made it clear his entire force is
still in danger. And that threat has officers armed with more
high- powered assault rifles. -- Ceres police officers have always
had assault rifles in their backseat...
to be carded when you register to vote
Elections officials across the state
are scrambling to enforce the voting provisions of Proposition
200, which became law Tuesday after the U.S. Justice Department
signed off, making Arizona the first state that requires proof
of citizenship when registering to vote. -- So when Jassey Salgado
registers for the first time after her 18th birthday in June,
she will have to present her birth certificate, a passport...

it by the rightful name - 'illegal alien'
The law: US Code Title 8, Chapter 12,
subchapter I section 1101 & subchapter II section 1325, defining
improper entry to the US without inspection by an immigration
officer as a crime. (New rhetoric from illegal-immigration advocates
says "it's not a crime to enter the US illegally."
That's nonsense; it's both a civil and criminal violation of
US immigration laws.)
doesn't offer licenses to its illegals
...Typical are the regulations of Baja
California, the contiguous state with California. In order to
obtain a regular Baja California driver's license, the applicant
must know how to read and write, be over the age of 18 ("student
licenses" are available for those over 16), and they must
show an official photo and signed ID. Those forms of identification
accepted include a Mexican passport...

A man suspected of telling authorities
about a possible terror threat in Boston has been detained in
a Mexican border town and was being questioned about last week's
tip and his motivation for calling it in, FBI officials said.

Fraud Convict Flees Before Sentencing
One of America's most aggressive advocates
for illegal immigrants is now an international fugitive after
failing to appear for his Jan. 21 sentencing in connection with
seven counts of visa/immigration fraud for which he was convicted.

according to a press release issued Friday by the U.S. Immigration
and Customs Enforcement...
Mexicans enter pleas in smuggling case
Houston -- Three Mexican nationals have
entered pleas in federal court after they were accused of holding
illegal immigrants captive until more smuggling fees were paid.
-- Paulino Hernandez Brito pleaded guilty to conspiracy to harbor
illegal immigrants; so have his Beatrice Flores Guzman, and Adrian
be fooled by peddlers of 'Immigration Reform' Scams
With the emergence of immigration as
a political issue, scam artists called politicians are seeking
to exploit Americans' sympathy and generosity. These politicians
ally with illegal- immigration / ethnic groups such as LaRaza,
MALDEF, LULAC and cheap-labor business groups (hotels, restaurants,
Making Hiring of Illegal Aliens an Unfair Labor Practice
A bill introduced in the Oklahoma legislature
by State Senator Tom Adelson would address the single greatest
threat to American workers: the systematic and widespread employment
of illegal aliens. While the federal government refuses to take
action against employers who undercut opportunities and wages
for American workers...
'drop house' raided
U.S. Border Patrol agents on Monday morning
arrested 74 suspected illegal immigrants, all Mexican citizens,
at a drop house near 1st Street and Avenue C just outside Yuma
city limits. -- Joe Brigman, spokesman for the Border Patrol's
Yuma sector, said agents were alerted to the two-story house
after receiving an anonymous call from a concerned citizen who
reported suspicious activity at the residence.
...There are two other issues that are
much more dangerous to our country and more immediate, too
and President Bush is ignoring both: 1) Illegal immigration.
-- 2) The exploding cost of health care. -- Why isn't the Bush
White House spending its newly won capital on these two more
immediate and vital issues? -- Ask anyone: Illegal immigration
the millions of illegals already here and the new ones
streaming in daily and nightly infuriates people...
I tell you, somebody at a very high level in
federal administration is successfully sabotaging the enforcement
of the immigration laws. -- One day I got upset with my neighbor's
hired gardener who mowed a lawn with a noisy mower that produced
thick smoke penetrating windows of my bedroom once a week at
on invader license push by Hollywood crowd
..."I think it's another example
of how rich Hollywood elites are out of touch with what's going
on in California," said Mike Spence of Save
Our License. "They don't see the impact of immigration
unless it's hiring someone to help out with chores around their
mansions ... and they're not in competition with illegal immigrants
for jobs." [View
forced down; suspected illegals held
San Antonio, Texas -- A group of suspected
illegal immigrants was being questioned early Tuesday after federal
officials forced their single-engine plane to land here. -- The
Cessna carried at least four suspected illegal immigrants who
were detained along with the craft's pilot by homeland security
officials in connection with a possible smuggling operation...
suspects vow to fight anti-invader bills
...Among some of the issues of high interest
to us are: access for Latinos to affordable health care, access
to higher education, fair housing and employment, access to drivers'
licenses for all eligible residents of Utah according to our
current laws [which includes invaders,
thanks to this clown],
as well as other important social causes.
new border agents aren't part of budget, Ridge says
Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge
said Monday that Bush's new budget, to be released in early February,
will propose a "good incremental increase" in the number
of agents. But he made it clear the number would not approach
2,000. The new agents were to be the first hires toward doubling
the size of the force over five years.
busted with $900,000 worth of cocaine
U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agents
made their first large cocaine seizure of the year over the weekend
at the Interstate 25 checkpoint near Las Cruces. -- When agents
became suspicious of the driver of a 2000 Chrysler Voyager and
his passenger, a canine agent was brought to the vehicle for
a non-intrusive search. The dog immediately alerted agents to
the presence of narcotics.
Dept. Halts Surveys of Farm Workers
The Labor Department has decided to quit
collecting data on migrant farm workers even as its reports showed
the share of illegal immigrants holding those jobs grew from
7 percent to more than 50 percent in just a decade. -- The information
is part of a survey that is the sole authority on the work and
living conditions of farm workers in the United States.
The Achille's Heel of the Bush Agenda
...We are a country at war, but how can
we claim to be battling terrorism if we don't even secure our
own borders? In the current fiscal year, the Department of Homeland
Security will have $40.7 billion to spend, yet only $74 million
was allocated for additional border patrol technology. Unless
we control our borders, our country will not be able to track
terrorists that may try to enter the country in the midst of
millions of illegal aliens.
