||United Press International -- December 21
over congressman's Koran protest
Rocky Mount, Va. -- U.S.
Rep. Virgil Goode, R-Va., said he will not apologize for criticizing
the use of the Koran for swearing in government officials.
"I fear that in the next century
we will have many more Muslims in the United States if we do
not adopt the strict immigration policies that I believe are
necessary to preserve the values and beliefs traditional to the
United States of America and to prevent our resources from being
swamped," Goode wrote.

Residents living in a neighborhood near
Yarbrough close to the border said it's not usual to see illegal
immigrants running through their streets. -- "Illegals are
crossing, they cross and then you see the border patrol and you
like 'hey you're too late, they're already gone'," said
Gloria Vasquez, from the Lower Valley.

when will she be deported? Will she be able to bring anything

Year-end tax deduction
An Arizona rancher took advantage of its special
tax status and donated a road grader and an ultra-light aircraft
to American Border Patrol. "You'd be surprised what ABP

jobs, but at whose expense?
The newly sworn-in president of Mexico
has pledged to focus on creating new jobs in Mexico, which supposedly
would allow would-be illegal [aliens...

it may sound like good news for anti-illegal immigration advocates.
However, what Calderon has implied in previous press releases...
America's borders are going down the toilet
Every day, I receive the most depressing e-mails
from good, hard-working, patriotic Immigration and Customs Enforcement

When someone says "left", many words
are coming to my mind, the most repetitive of which, except,
perhaps, for "not right," is the word "arrogant".
And, indeed, when I look at the history of over 100 years of
diverse movements that experimented with various flavors and
brands of leftist ideologies, from cosmopolitan Marxism...

Mexican invader hurts her cause with standoff
It took seven months for the U.S. Immigration

immigrant from Mexico who had spoken publicly about his efforts
to remain in the United States. Barrios appeared in an immigration

immigration raid was justified
Almost exactly two years ago, the Swift
meatpacking plant in Greeley laid off 800 workers. -- Unlike
the furor over the recent Immigration and Customs Enforcement,

invaders dare to make annual Mexico visits
In the crossings at the United States'
southern border, tens of thousands of illegal Mexican [aliens...
criminals] head each year in the direction of Mexico. While
no statistics are kept on this reverse migration, researchers
in both countries suggest that the numbers have declined as border
controls have tightened in recent years.

Naco, Ariz. -- The United States has
begun to apply tactics perfected in the war in Afghanistan to
tighten control of the border with Mexico, using a mix of age-old
hunting techniques and high-tech spy- in- the- sky surveillance.
-- On the ground, U.S. Border Patrol agents on horseback, on
foot, and in all-terrain vehicles... [Note: American Border Patrol reports that
this Reuters story about the border appears to be full of factual
